“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband and I just finished our first trip to Italy and the Tourist House Ghiberti was the second of seven hotels we stayed in during our 12 day trip. The hotel is centrally located and is a quite walk to the main square/basilica (the basilica is a marvel!). To gain access to the hotel you must go through a heavy door which leads you into a concrete area, which smelled awful. They luckily had an elevator for our luggage to the second floor check-in desk. The staff were very helpful and we had an okay breakfast the following morning. If you're looking for a one night stay, this may be what you're looking for.

We stayed at THG for four nights in Sep 29-Oct 2, 2012. What a wonderful location--within easy walking distance of everything you'd want to see in Florence. The B&B was immaculate, breakfasts delicious, the staff extremely helpful. We especially enjoyed the hot tub each day to pamper our weary feet. We recommend this wonderful hotel without reservation and would return in a moment. The church bells marking the hours of the day are wonderful.

We stayed here September 22nd-25th. We loved the location. Easy walk from the train station, and just a few minutes to El Duomo. The owner was helpful in making us dinner reservations one night, which we much appreciated. The room was spacious, and the bathroom was modern. The bed was a little bit firmer than I like, but I slept well all the same. We didn't use the jacuzzi or steam room, so I can't comment on that. Breakfast was decent as well. Overall a very nice experience in a wonderful city.

We only had a couple of nights to spend in Florence, but it was a truly amazing stay! Loved loved loved THG, with its spotless clean and comfortable rooms, jacuzzi, which was a cool relief after an entree day of exploring the city, (also sauna, though did not use it) and nice breakfast in the courtyard. The room was huge and had quite an impressive bathroom, a computer that guests may use, a safe, a flatscreen tv and even speakers on both sides above the bed so that the noise doesn't disturb your partner if s/he is sleeping. The location is also superb, right around the corner from the Duomo. The breakfast had a nice selection of savory and sweet items, while coffee is made and served by the guest house owner himself. If anything, I would add a little bowl of cherry tomatoes and sliced cucumbers to compliment the trays of hams and other meats to make it super perfect! :) A fantastic stay in a breathtaking city - definitely recommended!!!

We stayed here for two nights and must admit this is one of the best B&B we have stayed in Europe. The location is within 15min walk from the Central train station and just around the corner fom Santa Di Maria. The host are extremely welcoming and provided us with a detailed orientation of the city. They even suggested a restaurant for dinner which served delicious Florentine steak. The bedroom we stayed in had plenty of space, clean and nicely furnished. They also provide:

- High speed Internet
- Your very own computer in the room which you can use to browse the Internet
- Satellite TV with English channels

They offer a wide variety of food for breakfast with freshly brewed coffee to order. We plan to stay here again on our next trip to Florence and highly recommended this B&B.

My husband and I stayed five nights in the Tourist House Ghilberti. I don't have a bad thing to say about this place -- it was comfortable, clean, great breakfast, had good air conditioning (we needed it in 100 degree weather), and it has a very strong and dependable internet (something very important to us). Besides its excellent location in the heart of Florence (and only an easy 10 minute walk from the train station with two smaller suitcases on wheels), Claudio & Christelle, and Lorenzo & Sara were excellent hosts. They helped us with tours, gave us very good restaurant recommendations, and either Claudio or Lorenzo were always there at the front desk -- always! Keep up the good work guys!

We didn't spend enough time in Florence but the short amount of time was blessed with our stay here. I think we got the most thorough check in and explanation of how things work. Most excellent. When we wanted to find a wine tasting trip Claudio was great at finding us a good operator an booking the trip. He was always at his desk at all hours so we were convinced he has a twin brother. The morning breakfast was excellent and filling. The outdoor eating area was great to start our mornings in. We will definitely recommend a stay here to our friends and relations if they are ever coming to Florence. Ciao
