“A lovely hotel!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 3 nights here and we were pleased with the hotel. The room was big- the bathroom was too. It was lovely and clean.

I recommended the hotel for a trip to Florence, we had no problems at all.

Very comfortable and very friendly hotel. Lovely young man helped me with rail tickets online and also recommended Il Gusto di Acasamia restaurant which is two minutes away and fantastic. The hotel is only minutes away from major tourist sites and couldn't be better positioned. Breakfast is fab and served until 12 so you could shoot off and see Michaelangelo's David (3 minute walk) before breakfast! Excellent position. Andrea del Castagno's Last Supper is just next door. How cool is that? We will definitely return.

We spent a week at the hotel in March 2013 when it was still called "Carolus Hotel." The cost was $136 per night including the four euro per day municipal tax we had to pay when we arrived. Our room, which was on the third floor, opened onto a spectacular view of backyards and the skyline. This was luxury living--excellent wifi, a large bathroom, a huge bed, double windows with shutters. The wallpaper is garish, not to mention the leaping lizards wallpaper in the hallway, but you soon get used to this. It goes with the garish esthetic of late gothic, early Renaissance Florence. The staff was eager to please. And as hotel breakfast's go, the Mate Luca's was superb--enough to keep you going until a late Florentine lunch. The location is also first rate. The hotel doesn't let you know, but it's right next door to Sant' Apollonia (at no. 1 Via 27 Aprile) where you can view Andrea del Castagno's Last Supper (c. 1445), the first of the great Florentine Last Suppers and a personal favorite. It's free and it could be the high point of your trip (we visited three times). The neighborhood Trattorias are reliable (La Divina and Ristorante Cafaggi di Cafaggi Andrea on Via Guelf, Academia in Piazza San Marco,) and La Cucina del Garga, just around the corner, is superb and not at all expensive by US standards. We visited in March, rainy season in Florence as it turned out, and hotel rates are low. My guess is that prices will be much higher April-October but then again higher all around, so Mate Luca would probably be a good choice in any season--assuming the very high quality of accommodation and service continues.
