“Fab location, wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Tourist house Ghiberti is a little gem located in the centre of Florence. We had a very warm welcome and were shown around our rooms which were super clean. We had a computer / television / bath and shower and unlimited access to wifi. The double windows block out a lot of the street noise.
Staff are very friendly and more than happy to help with any questions about directions/book taxis etc.
The beds were a little hard but this is just a minor downside.
Breakfast was nice - selection of teas/coffee/pastries/bread/cereal/fruit/juice.
They also had selection of DVD's to choose from not that you would need it when your in Florence but I thought it was a nice touch.
I would definitely stay here again!

I have spent a ery romantic weekend with my boyfriend in Folernce and we stayed at the Tourist House Ghiberti. Probably the best location we could choose, we were very happy with it. I'm not use to have big breakfast, but we got a good choice of it. Recommend it to everyone.

This is a gem of a place although the entrance hall on the ground floor is dark. The rooms are on the first floor and ours overlooked the local hospital entrance. Big room, large bed, interesting mosaic design around the bathroom mirror. Breakfast with a great choice of food and a quirky method for making boiled eggs.
Ideal location two minutes from the Duomo. Would definitely recommend.

We would stay here again and will recommend it to anyone we know going to Florence. The location is perfect; it is very convenient to the Duomo and the main museums and it is very secure. The room is very clean and comfortable with a nice full bathroom and large bed. They offer a nice breakfast selection and the garden terrace is a nice touch. They were very helpful in arranging a tour guide for us and saved us time by purchasing our museum tickets. They also helped us make the best of our short stay in Florence by giving us tips and advice about the sights to see. All in all, it is a terrific property run by terrific staff.

We only had two nights in Florence and this was a perfect choice. Centrally located between the Uffizzi and Academie and only a block from the Duomo. Our host helped us to get reservations to both museums. The room was pretty spectacular, gorgeous high ceilings, spacious with a large updated bathroom and everything super clean. Would definitely recommend.

We spent one night here. Easy access to Duomo, shopping and all that Florence has to offer. Rooms were clean. Beds are a little harder than we are used to at home. There is a lift if you don't want to climb the stairs. Very secure building within walking distance of the train station.

We spent four nights here in early November and found it the perfect place for a short stay in Florence. It was a few minutes' walk from the Duomo, and everything else was easily walkable. It was spotlessly clean and we had a large bathroom with bath, shower, bidet and wc. Beds were firm and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and offered a wide range of food - cereal, toast, pastries, fruit, yogurts etc. We were lucky with the weather, which was unseasonably hot - shorts and t shirt weather - so we ate breakfast on the terrace...it felt like a summer holiday rather than a winter break. Very relaxing...
There was a lot of technology available in the room - which was in a deliciously old building, with a lift nearly as old as the house... No tea or coffee making facilities, which would have been welcome, but there was room service and a mini bar at reasonable prices.
I wd certainly stay if I ever go to Florence again (and since I rubbed a coin on the nose of the pig at the market, I'm sure I will!!)
