Good stay, but hotel under construction

I'm little mislead about this hotel; first there's no shuttle service to and from airport, which is stated in amenities and second the hotel is under serious construction right now that you are woken up early. Don't get me wrong this is a very nice hotel with great service and location, but if I'm booking 4 star hotel and spending more than 3 star I expect to not be mislead and not be in a hotel under construction for 5 nights on vacation.

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!

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)

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

Great location and staff

Staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. Great breakfast, cold and hot items available. Location is perfect, near all mayor sites. There are two cafes next to the hotel, nice when getting in late and you need a snack before bed. Only negative was the bathroom, its tiny. Overall, I recommend it.

Super value, super location!

The Calzaiuoli Hotel is in an outstanding location just blocks from both the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery in central Florence. The room was rather small but very clean and nicely appointed with a large, marble bathroom. The staff were very nice and the included breakfast was well beyond most hotels. We would readily stay here again. It's a Great value!

Great Location but noisy

Great location, good value, good room. Would give it 5 stars but our room was near the breakfast area. It got very loud and annoying starting at 6:30 each morning. Most of the noise was from the staff talking to each other and banging stuff. When we asked for the staff to be a little quieter, the management shrugged and offered us another room that would have been directly above the breakfast room and not any quieter. Good hotel, just stay away from the first floor breakfast room.

Excellent hotel in Florence

The location of this hotel cannot be overstated: it is superb, right near the Duomo and all the best shopping and restaurants. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was lovely. Breakfast was nice: not over the top but quite adequate. I would highly recommend.

Good location

The best thing about this hotel is its location. You are pretty much in the center of everything. The only think we did not like about this hotel was the noise level. You could hear everyone walking in the lobby as the doors were not soundproof.

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.
