We stayed for three nights at Hotel Bijoux, and it went very well. We spent our entire days out and about, so we were only here in the evenings before going to bed and in the mornings, but the staff were welcoming and accommodating and the rooms sparse but comfortable. The bathroom floors often flooded with the use of the... More

Only rating it this so you'll see but this was a terrible hotel and the manager is a terrible human. Has absolutely no costumer service skills. Or plane was changed a day so we had some of our other friends stay in our room since we didn't get to and she tried to recharge us the room price even though... More

We booked the Hotel Bijou directly because there was an eccellent offer on their site. We paid ONLY $34 for a double room during High Season! The room was very clean, they give guests an electric anti-mosquito device. WIFI is free and connection is OK. Visit the rooftop terrace, you will not be disappointed!

This place was terrible. I had to pay for the wifi even though it was advertised as free. The staff was very hostile towards me. I was yell at for the first 5 minutes of being there. The room had mosquitoes and wasn't very clean. Do not book here. The worst hotel experience I've had.

Hotel Bijou’s main appeal is it’s prime location just a short stroll away from both the train station and the Duomo – Florence’s center – and affordable price-per-night. The staff is kind, and always-on call (every night before bed, I’d ask for a glass of water and the watchman would stop whatever he was doing to get one for me,... More

If you’re looking for a simple place to stay that is easily accessible and great for price, then check out Hotel Bijou. It’s located in downtown Florence right around the corner from the train station. Noise on the streets were an issue at night, but worth it in the end when you consider everything else. The hotel is nice and... More

Hotel Bijou is an affordable, comfortable hotel in the heart of Florence, Italy. The location could not be better, located a mere block away from the train station, making travel with luggage a possibility6663.

Such a wonderful place to stay! My roommate and I stayed in a double room. Quiet and enough space for us. There was always someone at the desk willing to help or answer questions.

We stayed in Hotel Bijiou for one weekend when our study abroad group traveled to Florence. The location was excellent, and the cost was not astronomical. Our walk from the train station was brief. And it took about ten minutes to walk to the Duomo. The rooms were clean and large, but simple. The Wi-Fi was faster than what we... More
