“Wonderful staff!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Location was great, staff were very helpful, family room 409, very convenient for a family of four. Based on the location, I would recommend this hotel. The staff are extremely helpful. For value for money, this hotel is good. Please take note, Uffizi Accademia are closed on Mondays.

Room Tip: 409 for families

The hotel is close to the train station, Duomo, and everything else.

Rooms- updated clean and spacious with nice size bathroom
Staff- very helpful with tips on day trips in the Tuscan region
Location- extremely convenient. The central location makes it very easy to stop by the room during a busy day for a break

This is a great value in Florence.

We stayed here for 4 nights in June 2013. The hotel is close to the train station, and so central! Travelling with a 6yo (and 15yo) it was so convenient to duck back to the hotel from virtually anywhere in Florence for an afternoon siesta. The staff are amazing, the breakfast is great (eggs, pastries, coffee, toast, juice), and the rooms are great. We had a quad room - two single beds for the kids tucked away in an alcove which left enough space for suitcases & "stuff", the room was markedly bigger than our quad room in Rome. The air-con was worked overtime - we had three days of over 35 degrees - but we slept ok. The wifi is great - the fastest we've had so far on our trip. This is my third trip to Florence and I've finally found my "go to" hotel for future stays. Am looking forward to coming back. Grazie Mille Laura e all the other staff :)

I stayed at Hotel Perseo for the second time at the end of May 2013 and for the third time returning in June 2013. I had also stayed the year before. The location can't be beat. You can walk easily to all major sites including the train station. The hotel staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. I sent many emails to the hotel before arrival to arrange for part of my stay and my emails were always answered quickly. I also requested a room with a view of the bell tower which I received. I love the sound of the church bells every morning. I also stayed in a room facing the courtyard. The room was a fair size considering it was in Europe and hotels are much smaller than american style hotel rooms. The hotel has a good breakfast of simple pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruit, juice etc. All of the reception staff are very nice and I always enjoyed speaking with them. Their recommendations for restaurants and shopping were greatly appreciated. I will definitely be staying at Hotel Perseo whenever returning to Florence. Thank you again Hotel Perseo!

Room Tip: The room facing the courtyard on the 4th floor with the double bed has a large shower. My favourite...

Had to rate this hotel top scores. Honestly the very best location I could have hoped for. Modern clean rooms, great value, very nice breakfast, extremely helpful friendly staff. You literally walk out of hotel and turn can left or right, and you have beautifully shops. restaurants and the most amazing sights, literally metres from the hotel, if not right next door. Went to 5 destinations in all on this trip , and Florence and this hotel was our highlight. P.S. best shopping ever

My 3 sisters & I spent 4 nights here. We had a quad room and were very happy with the accommodations. The room and bathroom were typically small, but there was plenty of room to set out our suitcases and hang things up. The breakfast was nice and the staff was very helpful, gracious and professional--especially Laura. She was delightful and very, very helpful. The location was only a short walk from the train station which made it easy to take day trips by bus. We had a wonderful time and would stay here again without hesitation.

The Hotel is located 5 minutes from the train station and 2 minutes from the center. The service was friendly and wonderful. They helped us reserve tickets in advance for the big attraction and got us a car service for the way back to the airport. The rooms are basic but include everything one might need. There is a good air-conditioning system. This was important for us since it was extremely hot when we were there. The breakfast is ok but not great. Extremely recommended for the good service and best possible location

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view of the bell tower
