Hotel Locanda de' Pazzi
Ranked #409 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a great little hotel, you feel as if you are going into a family home. The staff were friendly and tolerated my dodgy Italian, and the room was a bit small but had lots of character. The breakfast was good.

The hotel seems to be more like a B&B. The owner (Tony) himself receives you and is really an excellent host. Although his English is not so good, he does his best to help you - and talking to him in Italian is just delightful, as he's very high spirited. The entrance looks weird, but the rooms are clean and nice (though some renovation would be welcome) and the breakfast room is cosy. There are lots of steep steps to get to the second floor, where the hotel is located, so not recommended for older people or people with some disabity (I myself have a bad knee, so it was hard). Fortunately, the owner was very kind and helped us with our heavy luggage up and then down. The air conditioner worked fine. The bathroom (I had an ensuite room) was the only low point: it was weird to shower in the middle of it and have it soaked later; it could use some renovation and the air exhaustion was really noisy. The location was just perfect and we could see all the sights on foot.

Despite the need to climb many steps to get to it the room was spacious and light. A brightly coloured bed cover set the room off and lifted our spirits. The window opened into an internal courtyard so it was quiet and we could see the top of the dome of the Duomo. The bed was comfortable and allowed us a good night's sleep. The bathroom was a good size and everything worked well. The man at the reception was very helpful and everything we asked for was made available without any fuss. It is in a wonderful location so that we didn't waste time getting to the different places we had identified beforehand. As the weather wasn't always kind it also meant we could get to places, particularly eateries, without getting very wet. Although there is free WiFi it is not always easy to connect to but we managed. The breakfasts had a good choice and the coffee was lovely and hot which was not the case in other places. It has a charm of its own which made it feel more like a home than a hotel.

We stayed here in July 2011. The two good things about the hotel is the location to the Duomo and the breakfast.
The bad things...Let's start with the advertising of Air Conditioning but not ever having it on. We asked four separate times to have the AC on. The first time they said it was off during the day and controlled by them only at night. When asked if ours could be turned on he said "I turn on for one hour". Next, morning we asked again about the AC. "Oh it comes on during the day to cool off and then off at night". Lies after lies about the AC. Traveling in 95 degree weather and sweating all day...it wouldn't make sense to only have the AC on during the day when none of your guests are in the rooms!

Secondly, the staff is only available during the day and depart around 10 o'clock at night. If you need anything they are not available. However, they do leave behind a very strong cigarette smell which leaked into our room during our stay.

Finally, not worth the money! And we should have asked for a refund and switched hotels.

We were delighted with everything about the hotel, although it was a little noisy at night. The owners do seem to be aware of this, but it is worth trying to get a room away from the street. But the price, location and service mean this is still a good option.

i stayed one night at Locanda d Pazzi on a solo trip in Florence for 30 euros (thanks to a last-minute offer on Venere.com), and found it to be great value for money for an affordable, clean, and well-furnished place. There's no curfew, as access is via security code. It is a 15 mins walk along Via degli Alberghi (depending on your speed) from Duomo, but there is good shopping along the way. Near to the Locanda, there are a number of eating places and a pasticceria which seem to be quite popular with locals. If you are looking for wine, drop by the enoteca just across the road on Borgo Pinti, and have a chat with the friendly owner Andrea.

Do note that there are no lifts, so be prepared to haul your luggage up 2 flights of stairs. There's also no internet access.

Highly recommend this hotel, with good value for money. Extremely convenient location just down the street from Duomo and the shopping area. The room was very clean, and overall, the hotel was well-maintained.
