“Somewhere in Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

When you step through the doors of this hotel, you'll feel like you've stepped back in time to another era. The architecture goes back to the Renaissance, and the furnishings in the common areas may help you imagine that you've arrived at Italian villa at the start of the nineteenth century. In particular the breakfast room is well appointed with period furniture and tableware that are different from what you'd find in a more modern hotel. The lodging rooms vary widely in terms of furnishings, and because it is an historic building the plumbing gets squeezed into existing spaces that can make for some awkward movements in bathrooms. I think this only adds to the charm of the experience. I've stayed at this hotel four or five times and find that the rooms in the back of the hotel overlooking the gardens of Accademia are a bit larger, and require you to navigate through many old hallways where there are historic details to discover at every twist and turn. On my last stay, the hotel was hosting a large tour group, and since we were a couple traveling on our own the manager asked if we'd mind giving up our standard room and take the suite at the top of the hotel. What great luck, and what kind and thoughtful staff who orchestrated that win-win. There are many nice hotels in Florence that provide comfortable lodging, but this beauty does that and more by giving you an experience you'll remember for a lifetime.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the gardens of Accademia

This hotel was decent. We did not stay in the main building but in one right off the plaza, and the rooms are not quite like the ones depicted on the website. The first night the heating in my room was very noisy. I mentioned it to the staff the next day and they promptly took care of it. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served a few steps away from the rooms. Overall a good experience, big rooms, great location and friendly staff.

Let's start with a disclaimer: If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place: look elsewhere. I chose this hotel because it offered the Renaissance ambiance, in the Renaissance city, at a very reasonable price. This place was built to mimic the Ospedale degli Innocenti, across the piazza (both buildings provide frame to the Piazza della Santissima Anunziata), to provide guest rooms to visitors of a monastery: you should expect spartan accommodations. We arrived "early" in the morning (about 9 am), and the room was ready for us. They gave us a garden view room (opposite to the piazza) at the second floor, but still had Brunelleschi's Cupola at sight: WAY TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING. The room had vaulted ceilings, simply but nicely painted, and a comfortable king size bed. Breakfast was reasonable. The concerns to be noted: 1. The bathroom was tiny: one could use the toilet and the shower at the same time! The shower curtain did not allow space for a normal person to bend over. 2. Also tiny was the elevator: a sardine can, literally... but one should take the stairs in a place like this anyways. 3. WiFi internet should not be counted on... and our bedroom was next to a wireless router.

Room Tip: 1. Although we initially were planning to make to Florence by train, as it turned out, having a vale...

Dear Guests,

Thank you so much for your stay with us and for sending your evaluation: it's good to read about your experience and as you pointed out, the hotel is still part of a Renaissance building. You can imagine how hard it can be to have a lift embedded into these walls without spoiling the very nature of the building itself and the same happens for a wi-fi router, though we managed to provide free connection for everyone. We hope you'll be able to come back to discover more and get a room with bigger bath as well. We are going to take it into consideration.
Best Regards

This hotel is a jewel. I cannot think of a better word. It is an old noble palace located in one of the nicest squares in Florence. It is so central that we were able to walk everywhere. Our room was old-fashioned but spotlessly clean and had a big bathroom. There is a nice lounge downstair and a small bar. We felt breakfast was adequate. The staff here are superb - the ladies at reception could not have been more helpful. When we come back to Florence we will stay here. Wonderful experience and very reasonable rates. Thank you.

The welcome & help from the staff was the start of a lovely stay here.We booked a Classic double room but were upgraded to a Superior (I think they knew it was my birthday!) The valet parking at €21 per day is the best option in the centre of Florence as we walked everywhere.From the hotel it is a 5 minute walk to Piazza del Duomo,which is breathtaking even on a rainy January evening.
Our room was stunning,warm & had fabulous views. Breakfast was included & was served in a separate, pretty little breakfast room off the lobby & was extremely good.
I would definitely use this Hotel again as it was amazing value for money.
The receptionist demands a special mention as she was friendly,helpful,unflappable & efficient,dealing with various clients in different languages all at the same time-a real asset to this establishment!

This is a nice hotel in a great location. On a quiet square about 4 blocks from the Duomo. We had a suite including 2 bathrooms, a living room and a bedroom. Clean certainly. Well maintained, certainly. Old in its' appointments, structurally different in that there are no "standard" rooms.

Low ceilings to into the bathrooms, high ceilings in the rooms themselves. Furniture clear and respectable but a little tired.

We stayed in the Hotel Campo di Fiori when we were in Rome. It is a hotel trying to look like the Loggiata. If you have the chance, compare the two reception areas. The Loggiata's room key storage is in place from the old days, the Hotel's is a replica. In both cases perfectly acceptable rooms and service. Prices are more than a little different.

Room Tip: We haven't seen any bad ones but in our suite I was able to shoot the attached picture through m...

Just got back from 9 days at this hotel It was in a great location and the staff were very friendly. They even sent champagne to our room on Christmas. Would come back in a minute! he breakfast was large and umbrellas were handy for the rain.

Room Tip: Choose a suite if you have a family.
