    We stayed in Baglioni Hotel Florence

    We stayed in Baglioni Hotel Florence in July, 2011 it is conveniently located opposite the train station to the right hand side. Location is very central. Lovery views of Florence from the dining room and from the large beautifully laid out roof terraces. Staff were friendly and very helpful if help was necessary. We would stay there again if in Florence Carherine and Breda Ireland

    Great location and staff

    The staff at this hotel are excellent. And the view from the rooftop restaurant must be one of the best in a Florence. Hotel rooms are quirky as you might expect in an old building adapted for hotel use. Breakfast had a good choice, and dinner on the rooftop was excellent. The square that the hotel is in has probably seen better days with the adjacent derelict hotel being something of an eyesore, and there are the inevitable sounds of a city given the central location of the hotel. It would be great if the hotel could install a gym somewhere but that's a small gripe in what for our family was a lovely holiday in a very good hotel.

    Italian getaway

    Picked this hotel for its reviews and location. Could not have asked for a better location, within easy walking distance to all the main attractions. Only downside was the bed, although big was very hard. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Florence

    This hotel is charming and romantic. The staff was accommodating and the amenities were fantastic. The hotel was located close to the train station, but also very close to river and the sights. I would recommend this hotel.

    Perfect Florence experience

    The Grand Baglioni offers the enduring charm of Florence, a feeling of place and of grandeur, as well as 21st century conveniences. The staff is extremely patient and helpful, and very accommodating to traveler's needs. Hopefully, when I return to Florence, I will again stay at this hotel. The location, the staff, the beauty of the rooms, the breakfast buffet, as well as the spectacular view from the restaurant terrace all add up to a fantastic Florentian experience!

    An Old World Gem

    This Hotel is an old world gem. The staff was great. At first they put us in a room too far away from the center of the hotel, and when asked about a change, they did it right away and sent someone to help. The location is grewat, near the RR station, with access to all public transport. And it is located near everything you want to see in Florence

    Review of Grand Hotel Baglioni

    The hotel was old but seemed nice. After the first night, we awoke with numerous red marks, mostly on arms, legs, and back that were small, red, and itchy, classic for bedbug bites. We did not see the bugs but have never experienced anything like this before. There is no air conditioning, fan, or ventilation and so the window was kept open. I would not recommend this hotel, under these circumstances!!!

    Grand Baglioni -A very nice hotel

    We were on a vacation and the staff was courteous as well as effecient to book the advance tickets for the 2 important museums - which we otherwise coundn't have made waiting in the long queue.It's an old property very well renovated without losing the old charm. Very convenient location - just a short walk from the main rail station -very convenient for day journey to Pisa.

    Great Location

    When we first arrived at the hotel, they did not have our reservation from Orbitz. Luckily we had brought a copy of the receipt with us. Within a few minutes they were able to find a room for us. The staff was nice. Every morning we ate the included breakfast. It was served in the restaurant on the top floor. It gave a beautiful view of Florence. The location is great. The walk is not that far to most of the more popular places. We highly recommend this place, but you might want to call to ahead of time make sure they have your reservation.
