5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We hadn't had the best start to our holiday in Pisa and arrived in Florence a little downhearted and very weary. As we walked through the doors of this hotel, the welcome we received was amazing. Our bags were taken and as we were too early to check in, we were offered the chance to freshen up in another room. We were given advice and directions on where to go for lunch and our spirits just lifted!

Paolo is simply a wonderful ambassador for this hotel, but all the staff are kind and friendly from the cleaners up to the owners - everyone wants you have enjoy your stay and to have a wonderful time in Florence.

To top it off, the rooms are clean and spacious, the location for sightseeing is perfect - we cannot recommend this hotel more highly!!!

Room Tip: We had a twin room, which was well equipped and quiet, but close to the reception area.

I will add briefly to the rave reviews. The location is perfect, the staff is excellent and provided great recommendations, the rooms are clean and very quiet, and it's one of the few places we could find that could accommodate a family of four in one room. Breakfast is fairly simple but sufficient to get the day started. Book fast because this place is justifiably popular.

The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. A nice buffet breakfast is included. The location is wonderful, within walking distance to most of the major sights. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 5 nights during May and June 2013 during a long trip through Italy. Although we stayed at many hotels during this time, in Florence, Venice, Naples, Pompeii and Rome, Hotel Casci was the highlight of our journey. The location is fantastic, 3 minutes to the Accademia and around 5 minutes to the city centre. The rooms were also great, with plenty of space for our children. The breakfast was much better than normally offerred in Italian hotels and the staff were great. We even left some of our baggage in the hotel after our trip and the staff were kind enough to send it back to Germany for us! We will stay here again, no question and recommend it to anyone travelling through Florence, especially for people who appreciate good service. Thanks Hotel Casci!

Hotel Casci is a small family run hotel located steps away from the Accademia and the Duomo. We arrived early after an all night flight and then the train from rome. Our luggage was stored and we were directed to a street of family friendly restaurants for a quick lunch while our rooms were cleaned. We had two triples, both were very clean with excellent wifi and a/c. The shower was a bit different and those with mobility issues have an issue as one must climb into the tub and then bend backwards to get under the water. Not a big deal for us. Kids giggled over the pull out bidet under the sink (something I had never seen before either).
Breakfast was included and adequate, but nothing amazing. We only stayed one night but would have loved another. Hotel is located on the 3rd floor (u.s.) and has very small and slow lift.

This hotel is right in the middle of Florence. Only 5 minutes walk from the Il Duomo. The breakfast was very good, lots of choices. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.

The only downside is the building itself. Hotel is located on 2nd or 3rd floor (I can't remember!) in a 15th century (?) building. The building uses a very old lift (which I was a bit afraid to use!) The ones that you need open the shutter door. The hotel layout is a bit unusual, long corridors, can be a bit frightening when you are walking on your own. These points have nothing to do with the service of the hotel. (I've found the staff very helpful.) These are just general impression of the hotel.

10 minutes from the train station (just a few from the Duomo) this location is perfect for viewing Florence's main attractions. When we first arrived, we were disappointed with our room (#18). While clean, it was small, and use of the shower leaked water all over the bathroom. The bathroom was so small that you had to carefully maneuver to avoid bumping into the fixtures. However, when we voiced our concerns to the hotel staff they moved us to a new room (#14) for the next night, which was much more comfortable. The rooms can use updating. The younger staff was helpful in arranging for day trips and gave a restaurant recommendation (that was great) in town. When it came to help for an out-of-town day-trip they were less helpful. The older staff barely understand English making it difficult for them to provide help. Breakfast was....meh. It's clearly a small family run hotel, but they do try to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: They seem to have a range of room sizes for the same price.

Casci, Manager at Hotel Casci, responded to this review, July 4, 2013
Thank you for your time in writing this comment – we are sorry to learn that your stay at our hotel was not fully satisfactory and would like to express our views.
As you clearly mentioned and noticed, our hotel is situated on the second floor of two ancient palaces dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries, right in the heart of the old town centre. Whilst it has been renovated and updated many times, it still retains an old flavour which adds to the atmosphere, but of course this also means that rooms and bathrooms vary in location and size, even if they all offer the same level of amenities (private bathroom, air conditioning, wi-fi, etc.). These guests did very well in telling us that they did not like their first room and in fact we promptly moved them, as this was easily possible (some guests don’t dare telling us and they complain just at the end, when it is too late to rectify any problems). However, we would like to point out that both rooms where these guests were accommodated in are doubles and have been refurbished just two months ago (one can still smell the new furniture ...) - many among our repeated guests have noticed that.
We do not understand the guests’ comment about our breakfast (meh ?), which is served in a fresco decorated room and is a reinforced continental buffet style, including toasts, soft and hard boiled eggs, home made yogurt, fresh fruit depending on the day (today we had bananas, plums, peaches, apricots, strawberries, white and yellow melons, pineapple, apples and oranges), cheese, salami, ham, fresh croissants, home made cakes, different kinds of bread, etc., plus of course coffee, tea, cappuccino, hot chocolate as much as clients like - many and many reviewers on Tripadvisor mention how nice it is ...
The other comment we do not understand is that our older staff would not understand English – we would like to know who these guests refer to, as the only old-er member of our staff is my mother, who has lived in Britain for many years and has worked with English speaking tourists for over 60 years – her English is more than perfect – all other members of our staff are younger ... and in any case, there is no way any of us would not be helpful – maybe at time we are busy and overworked, but we are always ready to help our guests in all possible ways - these guests themselves mention at the end that we try out utmost to make sure everybody enjoys their stay.
In fact, we really are a small hotel with a strong family feeling and that’s what most of our guests like about us – of course, it is difficult to please everybody all the times, but at least we give it a try !!
