“Great hotel, Great location!”
Reviewed October 11, 2009

I picked this hotel based on three things, great price, great location and great reviews! I was traveling to Florence by myself for two days and wanted something affordable but safe and in a good location. Hotel Perseo was exactly what I was looking for. The rooms are nothing fancy but clean, simple most importantly a safe and charming place to sleep. After all, who wastes their time in the hotel room when they are in Florence? Not me. The reception staff were great and speak perfect english. Breakfast was just what I was looking for and loved that it was included in the room price. You couldnt ask for a better location as its just steps from the duomo and 5 minute walk to the train station. The only negative thing I can say is there seemed to be the sound of constant running water throughout the night. Nothing I couldnt sleep through though. I will definitely stay here the next time I return to Florence.

The staff were amazing, willing to do anything to help make our stay memorable and hassle free. Clean room, comfortable bed, buffet breakfast, happy hour and all within half a block from the Duomo . Would highly recommend.

Don't look any further for a place to stay in Florence. Great location, good breakfast, wonderful rooms .... and the staff is spectacular. We left feeling we had made new friends.

This is a friendly small hotel, well decorated and very clean. Our superior room was very spacious, with a view of the Duomo from one window. The staff are very helpful, and the small bar/ breakfast room encourages chatting with other guests. The hotelis 50 metres from the Duomo, and easy walking distance from the station, so it is particularly good for first time visitors to Florence.

This was our second stay at Il Perseo, which speaks volumes. The staff here are so friendly and helpful and go above and beyond to assist with finding restaurants, attractions, and ensuring your comfort. The location is absolutely ideal, just steps away from the Duomo, and in the center of all of the main attractions. Nearly everything you would want to see is in walking distance from this hotel. The rooms are modest in size, but clean, and the breakfast and evening hospitality, location and friendliness of the staff more than compensate for this. Upon my return to Florence, I will not hesitate to stay here again.

The Hotel Il Perseo is located in the center of Florence, one block from the Duomo and within easy walking distance of most of the sights and shopping. The streets in are narrow and one-way: a good computer- or companion- navigation is essential. Park over the curb and notify the hotel of arrival: they summon a valet to take the car to a (very reasonably priced) facility if you book ahead. The hotel is up an elevator to the third floor, there is a small lobby, reception, and breakfast space. The area is fairly accessible off the elevator.

The desk staff is incredibly helpful, not only with parking, but with restaurants, museum tickets, and advice. All speak excellent English and are friendly like family. Rooms tend towards comfortable / minimal: a firm bed, clean bathroom, TV and Minibar, no Internet or workspace. It was quiet at night. Breakfast was good, coffee, a small buffet off cereals, juices, breads, meat, and cheeses..

This is a good value hotel in an exceptional location with a great staff: an excellent base for exploring the city.

We loved our stay at Perseo. The location was perfect...steps away from The Duomo. Short walks to the Uffizi and Academia galleries. Right in the heart of Florence. The staff was terrific with service, reservations, recommendations, etc. The room was spotlessly clean and quiet. The continental breakfast was great and hit the spot in the mornings. A recommendation from one of the staff provided us with a wonderful evening and meal at the el Trebbio restaurant. A walk away from the central railway station if you're traveling by rail as we were.
