My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Casci. I chose it based on the fact that it's a smaller family run hotel, and the trip advisor reviews, and I was not disappointed. It's very central and has excellent internet access (an important thing for us, as we're having to work while we travel).
We arrived flustered and with our hire car (on our way to drop it off). The young gentleman on the desk was so helpful, with my luggage, information on getting the car back (driving in Florence city has a few tricks!) and also on how to get into the galleries. I hadn't booked tickets to Uffizi (I was a bit disorganised) and he recommended us to join a tour, organised it for us and it was a great investment! He also gave us great restaurant recommendations and booked us in. :-) The food was fantastic! I think it was called something like Accadamia (please forgive the appalling spelling)?
The rooms were older (not surprising, it's a 600 year old building!) but they were very clean and fairly spacious. Old, but lovely and great for the price.
The air conditioning was excellent.
Breakfast was plentiful, fresh and friendly with great service.
There's also a laundry service, which is great. For 20 Euros they'll wash and dry a whole load for you! How fantastic! I'd rather that, than sit for hours in a laundromat wasting time in Florence. I didn't get to use it (as we didn't stay for two nights) but I thought it was worth mentioning as laundry is always a bit of a hassle when you're travelling.
My husband and I would definitely stay again. We really enjoyed it here at Hotel Casci. Thanks Lombardi family!
