“The looks of it don't show how great it is!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stayed in Bodoni for 3 nights. If u let aside the decoration of the room (which is nothing special) and the fact that the bathroom has a shower but no bathtub or something similar but just a drain on the floor for the water to go down, the hotel is great. Excellent spot, central and close to everything.Really good hotel stuff,kind,helpful and polite...we loved everyone!The breakfast was the best!The room had all necessary-fridge,hairdryer,tv,aircondition(although it was noisy and did not work properly,at least in our room) and we had clean towels everyday.If we ever visit Florence again we will try to stay in Bodoni!!!

Bodoni offers basic rooms with private bathroom (wet room) very close to the centre of Florence and only a 15 minute walk from the train station. During our time in Florence it was exceptionally hot and a portable air conditioner was in the room, this was quite loud to have on at night, but it was either noise or heat - ear plugs helped. There is a good breakfast and a nice terrace to have it on. Overall this is a good budget hotel with an excellent location.

Hotel Bodoni was an interesting hotel that was on the fourth floor! The bonus was the value of a modest, clean & comfortable hotel with a great breakfast bar and rooftop view across Florence. The shower was very small but the welcoming and efficient staff were super. We also had a balcony off our room which was great too and faced onto the street. The room was very quiet and there were great restaurants and tourist attractions within walking distance. Value for money it is definately worth a visit.

Room Tip: We liked the balcony and worthwhile requesting at time of booking!

The rooms were comfortable, lots of space and very clean. Very centrally located our children had a lovely balcony with a view of the Duomo. Perfectly placed for sightseeing, siesta then out for evening meal and an explore. The breakfast was plentiful lots of choice and the staff friendly and helpful. Very enjoyable stay thanks.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front are sunnier with better views

Clean, comfortable, quiet, lovely lovely lovely view out the window (ask for a room with nice view when booking) most importantly, excellent service! The reception even helped us get our money back when the machine in a nearby laundromat ate it, that was gold!

Great location too, we walked from the train station to the hotel and walked to all the sights from the hotel during our stay.

We were lucky to be here on June 24th when Florence celebrates their Saint Patron, watched fireworks from our hotel room :)

Really good breakfast compared to some of the other hotels we stayed in in Europe, freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning and having your breakfast on the terrace, how good is that?! I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
