Located in the heart of the city in a lovely early 20th-century palazzo, Hotel Gioia welcomes its guests to the comfortable atmosphere of a private home that makes this hotel one of the most pleasant 3-star hotels in Florence. Hotel Gioia's services are distinguished for their solicitude and professionalism and make it the ideal solution for those traveling for both business or pleasure: you can arrive at your convenience at any time of day or night and, if traveling by car, the hotel has arrangements with a nearby garage (for payment) to pick up and deliver your car, whenever necessary, upon request. The hotel staff is available 24 hours a day to help you use the Internet point, rent a car (even with driver), call a taxi, make reservations for performances, trains and planes, museum visits, excursions and, if need be, even medical assistance at the hotel.

Bad service, bad attitude and A/C is a lie

The attitude of the personal is really bad. The air conditioning does cannot go below 25 C. The breakfast is a joke

Just a place to sleep.

Hotel pricing in Florence is absurd. This place in cheap and in the middle of town. Don't expect more.

Average hotel in a great location

There are two great things about this hotel: the location (most of Florence's main attractions are a short walk away) and the friendly, helpful staff. Otherwise, it's a fairly average hotel. My room was reasonably clean but a bit cramped with very narrow twin beds that would have been more suitable for children than full-grown adults. It was also rather dark, but I did ask for a quiet room at the back. Apparently this means a room overlooking a small courtyard that doesn't get much direct sunlight. This wasn't a huge issue since I was out sightseeing for most of the daylight hours. All in all, it was a good base for sightseeing, but I wouldn't have wanted to spend too much time there.

Central location in Florence

Hotel is something I expected for 3 star. Good rooms, generally clean. Location is great though, right next to Accademia, a few minutes walk to Duomo, 10 minutes walk to train station and bus to airport.

Location perfect

The location was perfect - down t he street from il duomo and near restaurants, grocery etc. However, the air conditioning was ineffective so the room was hot and the beds hard. Big room.and good staff

Three Star Review for Three Star Hotel

At this hotel you get what you paid for. Great location and good breakfast. Bed's not the best... lacked box spring, however we booked three star hotels for our stay in Italy and 3 out of the 4 hotels lacked box springs.

Excellent hotel and location

This hotel is older as most are in Italy, and not up-to-date with furnishings. However, what it lacks in decor it more than makes up in location and room size. Uncharacteristic for Italy the room was huge! There was free WiFi and breakfast. And, the best thing is that it was only a couple minutes from the Duomo and the center of town. The staff was very friendly, and the price was right. I booked the room based on reviews on a well known trip review site, and I'm glad I did!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Instead of taking a cab from the train station (SM Novella) simply walk. It is only 1KM and pretty straight forward.

Exellent Location

This small hotel is only a few blocks from both the Duomo and the Accademia, can't get much better. Given its location it is a great value.

Darling hotel

We loved this hotel in Florence! It's about a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and is surrounded by great restaurants. The staff at this hotel were amazing, they were so sweet each morning for breakfast and very kind as you walked into the hotel each day. The hotel is not updated but it is truly a charming hotel!

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Definitely take a day trip to one of the many vineyards in Tuscany! The train station is about a 7 minute walk from the hotel, and that's where many tour groups meet!
