“Excellent Florence hotel”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Just returned from 3 days in Florence. Hotel Casci was the perfect base for our Florence adventure. Very comfortable, quiet, and clean room. Free internet. Very good breakfast including meat, cheeses, fruit and hard boiled eggs. The room came with power converters to charge iphones, ipads, etc. The location was perfect. 10 minute walk from train station. 2 blocks from Doumo. Paulo was very friendly and helpful. He can make tour reservations for you if needed.
I would absolutely stay here again when I return to Florence.

Hotel Casci is perfectly located for sightseeing in Florence, just a short walk up from the Duomo and other main sights. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, helping us with everything from reserving museum tickets, calling to make us dinner reservations, and arranging for our taxi to the airport. The room was clean and comfortable -- though the bathroom was the smallest of our many small bathrooms in Italy! There was also a good spread and good coffee for breakfast each morning. All in all, a great place to stay when you're in Florence!

My husband and I returned for our third stay at Hotel Casci, staying four nights, Sept. 8-12. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival and shown to our room. We always enjoy their breakfast and meeting travelers from many different places. Paolo was very helpful with train information and any other help we needed. Signora Lombardi, was as always, extremely pleasant and always asking if we needed anything. We feel like members of the family when we stay at this hotel, and hate saying goodbye when we leave. The location is perfect, the room is always very clean, and we would not consider staying anywhere else. We highly recommend the Hotel Casci for your next trip to Firenze.

Literally, you are at the center of their attention, at the center of the building, at the center of the street, at the center of Firenze, at the center of all activity and at the cradle of civilization itself! This hotel represents great value in a family run cozy hotel. As other reviews pointed out, this hotel does not have the building to itself, it is a multi-tenant situation where the 2nd floor is their's. Once you enter through the doors to the reception, it will not matter and you won't remember the funny elevator that took you there!

The breakfast that Mamma makes every morning is simply awesome and fresh! She takes such great care and her attention to detail is awesome. They all make sure you have the best start to the day! My son befriended their next generation and they struck a chord with no language barriers, playing the same game together! WiFi was great as were the recommendations made by the family on how to plan the day. They also made reservations at Accademia and Uffizi for us.

All in all, this is a place I'd not hesitate to recommend to anyone serious about exploring Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Civilization itself!

We stayed at the Hotel Casci for three nights and it was wonderful. The location was perfect, close to everything (very easy to walk to all the sights) just a few blocks from the Duomo. The staff were friendly and the room was spacious, it even had a bathtub, which came in handy after a long day of walking. We slept late the first morning and thought we had missed breakfast by an hour but they were very accommodating and provided a wonderful selection and coffee to get our day started. Ask for room #10.

We stayed at Hotel Casci for three nights in July. We got the large family room since we are a family of five. The room was great, clean and comfortable for us all.
The hotel is excellently located in the center of Florence, everything is just a short walk away.
Just to be clear this is not a luxury hotel or anything like that. What really sets it apart from from more expensive options is the attitude and helpfulness of the staff. I have rarely stayed at a hotel in a big city where you feel as welcome. That is something that beats fancy decor and luxury anytime.

Very pleasant experience staying in this hotel. The reception was very helpful and arranged walking tours of Florence for us. We were a party of 5 and the room was huge. The location was great. It was very close to Duomo and there were so many restaurants close by. The hotel was well maintained and was tastefully decorated. They even had laundry service which was convenient and not pricey. For a room that big and the location, the price was great. We would definitely consider staying here again.
