“Great location and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Great little hotel (once I found it), just steps from the Duomo and everything the area has to offer. Room was clean and larger than expected, the staff was very helpful with reservations and suggestions for dining. W-fi was weak and spotty, but we could deal with it. Breakfast was fine, but could get a little crowded in the small room. Overall, a very nice little hotel in a great location for exploring all that Florence has to offer.

We have a very comfortable stay in Perseo. The location is great. We enjoyed the daily breakfast too. The staffs are charming and helpful. Rooms are clean and quiet. Hotel is located on 3rd floor and above of the building, there is a lift, although slow but works well.

Last week our family of 5 spent 3 wonderful days in Florence, stayed at the Hotel Perseo just a half block from the Santa Maria del Fiore Dome. The location was perfect, we walked everywhere. The staff is so helpful, especially the night desk clerk, he made restaurant and tour reservations for us. He tried to get us into a cooking class but it was full for the time we needed it, but we found a great bike tour through Florencetown tours who took us out of the crowds to bike in the Tuscan hills above above Florence. The clerk made reservations for us, he wanted us to have a good time and helped us so much. The hotel is air conditioned, very clean and modern. The breakfast is delicious with the cold meats, cheeses and hard boiled eggs along with the delicious croissants, rolls, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals and juice. They even made coffee lattes for us each mornings. Our family had 2 rooms. They even delivered champagne to our daughter and her husband's room on her birthday. Thank you Hotel Perseo for making our vacation so special! Ciao!

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...
