Reviewed February 3, 2011

Pros:
-Owners who work in hotel are friendly, helpful and involved in making sure their guests are well provided for
-Located very close to Duomo
-Owners restaurant suggestions were great !
-Hotel is spotless and bed was confortable

Comment:
-We didn't have buffet breakfast as we believe there were only a couple of rooms rented. We had looked forward to a buffet breakfast but understand that it would not be cost effective for 4 peerson. The staff brought us orange juice, hot beverage of choice and croissants to the room. I'm sure their buffet breakfast is exceptional.

It’s been a very good stay.
The hotel is located just behind the ‘Duomo’ very near to every attraction. People are good and well educated.

The only one thing that I feel to suggest is: if you have to take a taxi step outside and catch it.

We had a bad experience with the taxi called by the hotel (not by the owner but by the receptionist). He arrived already with a charge, took a complicated route to reach the train station and, at the end, it charge € 1 for each luggage and € 2 for the call. Overall € 13 for a journey doesn’t take more than 10 min walking!?!

By by for now

Small, clean and 'essential' rooms but very cosy. It was a pity that there was non kitchen in the hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Benivieni in late August and chose it largely based on its location and the TripAdvisor reviews. I am happy to say the hotel did not disappoint. We got there by foot from the train station - it was a quick 10 minute walk and the hotel was fairly easy to find based on the directions e-mailed to me by the staff prior to our trip. It's a small property, family-run, clean and comfortable. It is literally just steps away from the Duomo, and within a short walking distance Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Uffizi and anywhere else you might want to go in Florence. The staff also had great restaurant recommendations within walking distance of the hotel.

Breakfast was definitely European continental, but more than adequate and the staff was happy to make a fresh cappuchino on request. Finally, Inez and her family were so warm and welcoming that we felt like we were staying with family rather than at a hotel. She paid special attention to our 6-year-old son and made our stay in Florence a truly unforgettable experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Florence and our stay at Hotel Benivieni. It's a beautiful hotel in a great central location. The room was quiet, clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We stayed here over Christmas 2010 and had a very enjoyable stay. Small but neat room, simple but pleasant breakfast arrangements, very friendly and helpful staff (who made a number of excellent restaurant recommendations, including on busy Christmas eve), and the location was perfect...woke to the bells of the Duomo every morning - which we enjoyed although others may not. Good value for the location and services provided.

I stayed here with friends in December 2010 after finding the hotel on TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed! We all loved the hotel and its staff. We were very comfortable in our 3 person room and enjoyed the breakfast each morning - just enough to get us started each day. Great cappuccinos! We also loved the location of the hotel - very close to the Duomo, so it was easy to orient ourselves in the city and find our way home. Florence is very walkable, so we became comfortable venturing away from the hotel and could always find our way back! The staff was very kind and helpful, and our room was neat and clean but not fancy. The beds were comfortable, and our room was quiet. We also used the free WIFI in our room, and that worked well. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely return to this hotel on a future visit.
