“Perfect choice”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The location is the best. It's just a short walk to all of the most popular sites, yet a room in the back of the hotel is quiet. The hotel staff is totally professional and accommodating, they gladly found us places to eat, called for cabs when necessary and were overall very helpful. The breakfast is lovely, this hotel was the perfect choice for our trip.

We had a room in the back of the hotel off the main street. It seemed like the reviews said the front of the hotel could be noisy. We were not disappointed, every morning we woke up to the numerous church bells and it was so relaxing. The view was nice, we could see the Duomo and views of the hills in the distance. I don't think you can beat the location. Breakfast was fine, meats, cheeses, breads, eggs everything you would expect. If you are looking for a nice hotel in the center of Florence, this place is for you.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back offer great views and church bells in the morning

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and quiet. The location is unbeatable, as you can walk to everything in Florence- including the train station! The service was fine (no complaints) and the breakfast served our purposes wonderfully.

The only CON I can think of is the shower. It consisted of a 1/2 wall of glass, so the water sprayed everywhere, and got the floor soaked each day. I'm surprised they chose this design.

Other than that- it was a wonderful stay in a great hotel! I would definitely recommend it!

Excellent location, extremely helpful staff, comfortable surroundings. We recently spent 4 days in Florence and found the Hotel Calzaiuoli to be perfectly located within a 2 minute walk from the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Ufizzi, etc. The desk staff were extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and making reservations. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 411 has a view of the Duomo and Campanile.

From the strategic location of the Calzaiuoli hotel, you are in the middle of Florence with all major attractions within walking distance. Our visit to Florence was wonderful thanks to our hotel accommodations at Calzaiuoli Hotel. Our hotel room was spacious, clean and quiet. The delicious breakfast each morning provided the day's start to walk all about the old city and visit museums, points of interests and (of course) shopping. The front desk staff are always courteous, polite and helpful. Highly recommend!

We stayed here during Worlds Cycling and the location was perfect for both touring Florence and for watching the race. The staff was helpful and our room, on the third floor and facing the back, was quiet, roomy and clean. The breakfast was fine. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel and our stay was average. We always check tripadvisor before booking a hotel and believe in the hotel ratings. So with all the good reviews, we expected a lot, and I think it fell short.

Upon arriving at the hotel, the man at the front desk told us we were in room 105. Having read all of the 'terrible' one-star reviews on tripadvisor, I knew that all of the worst rooms are on the first floor. So we asked the gentleman if there wan another room on a higher floor we could stay in. He told us all of the rooms were booked and that 105 is all that is available. We told him we can't stay on the first floor because we heard it's noisy from both the street and from the breakfast room in the morning. He kept saying nothing was available, so then we said we would leave since we hadn't paid yet. Suddenly a room on the fourth floor became available! How miraculous!

We go to our room and it's a decent size and looks ok. The location of the hotel is really good as it's right on a busy street and close to everything.

The negatives are, well, the service we got on the first day, and that the bathroom is very narrow. It's like a long hall. The bathtub is open so that water sprays all over the floor. The bed was not very soft either.

The breakfast buffet was included but lacked a lot of good options. There was juice/coffee/tea, some pastries, fruit, eggs, sausages and cold cuts which sounds good but the quality was lacking.

In a nutshell, the hotel was ok, the breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the service on the first day regarding a room change was poor. After having seen where the room would have been, I can't believe they would even offer that room to customers. My advice is that the hotel is ok, AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT ANYWHERE ON THE FIRST FLOOR, I.E. THE 100'S. You will get street noise (we could even hear the street from the 4th floor so I can't imagine what the first floor would be like) and the rooms are in between the kitchen and the breakfast room so from early morning you will be woken up by kitchen sounds.

Room Tip: Avoid staying on the first floor.
