We stayed at the Hotel Caravaggio. Piazza Indipendenza 5, 50129 Florence Italy in October 2011. This hotel was very reasonably priced approx. with the Rand to Euro rate at the time of booking which was March 2010 it worked out at €285 for two people for three nights. The hotel price included a continental breakfast. We had comfortable beds with our own bathroom and TV. This hotel was absolutely ideally placed for our visit. It was a 10 minute walk from the bus station, the Duomo, the Uffizi, in fact just about everything. The only slightly down side was that our room looked out onto a service area in the centre of the building, but the sights in the rest of Florence made up for that.
When we arrived we were met by friendly staff who gave us a map of Florence and then took the time to mark where we were on the map and tell us about the main attractions in Florence and marked them on the map as well. These attractions were all within walking distance. We found the staff to be excellent, especially the reception staff who always had a warm word of welcome and were ready to help us with information and taxis.More
