Amazing location, great for americans

We had an amazing time at Hotel Calzaiuoli, Florence. I don't think we could have found a more perfect hotel. -The location cannot be beat. In the middle of the city next to Piazza Signoria. We were able to walk everywhere and FAST. There were 20 gelato places within a 60 second walk of the hotel -Free wifi: and it worked well! -The rooms were clean, and very comfortable. Our room faced the back and we heard 0 street noise -The staff went out of their way to help us with everything -Free breakfast was very good. (buffet style, like an extra nice continental breakfast) We would recommend this to anyone visiting Florence. I'm not sure if they have on-site parking given its central location, but if you stay here you definitely do not need to rent a car. Everything is within a 10-15 minute walk (and usually even shorter)

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

THere are banks nearby, so use your ATM to take cash out, rather than an exchange center. The rate you get is MUCH better.

Pleasant, comfortable and convenient

This hotel has a great location. It is walking distance to nearly every major sight, on a fun, interesting thoroughfare with nice shops, and a few meters to a beautiful plaza with frequent street performers and a carousel. The bed and overall room were comfortable with good air-conditioning. I didn't give 5 stars here because it wasn't the most comfortable; my husband thought the bed was too hard, I thought the pillows too hard, and why can't even nice hotels in Europe have shower doors? You had to be very careful or you would get the entire bathroom all wet. Beautiful marble bathroom however, really nice provided tolietries and tasteful furnishings and decor. Also, the included breakfast was delicious and complete with eggs, breakfast meats, cheeses, fresh pastries, etc. and nice waitress service. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you plan to visit the Uffizi and Accademia museums in Florence, it's much better to get your tickets/reservations in advance on the web well before you leave for your trip. That way you can avoid standing in the long lines--which we were so happy to avoid since it was very hot in the afternoons!

Highly recommend

Located at the heart of the city. A 30 second walk from the Duomo. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathrooms were fantastic as well. Breakfast was delicious. We were extremely comfortable and would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Florence.

Perfect location

This hotel is located on the Via Calzaiuoli, which is the main shopping street in downtown Florence. It is almost equidistant from the Duomo and the Piazza della Signoria (each are about a two-minute walk) and literally right next door to "COIN", which is the leading department store in Florence. It is also only a block away from the Piazza della Republica, a favorite spot to dine for American tourists. The breakfast is superb with wonderful service from two quite gracious women; if you are there off season, you are likely to hear four or five different languages from the clientele, who are mostly staying in Florence on business trips. There is virtually no noise in the hotel, since it is in the pedestrian area of the inner city, where no auto traffic is allowed. Highly recommend this hotel; if we return to Florence, it will undoubtedly receive our business once again.

Vivoli Gelateria, home of the "world's best ice cream"! It is not idle boasting.

Suberb location and great service.

This is an excellent hotel at a great price. I stayed a week as I tried to see every museum and church in Florence. I plan to stay there again. It would be impossible to find a better location. This hotel is at the very center of the historic district. Great restaurants at all price ranges are within a few blocks. The staff is friendly, responsive and professional. Breakfast, served in a pretty room, is substantial. Via Calzaiuoli is a busy pedestrian street, exciting but noisy. Service trucks come early in the morning---and church bells ring in the Duomo Campanile. I requested a front room because I wanted to watch the street traffic. The inner shutters blocked out most of the noise but I still needed ear plugs. On my next visit I will request a quieter room in the back of the hotel. The views are pleasant and the rooms are slightly larger. The hotel is small and the rooms are small. There is a small library but no lobby.

Ristorante Paoli, around the corner at Via dei Tavolini 12, is historic and excellent. Go after 8:00pm to avoid tourists.
