Great hotel in fantastic location. Walking distance from many restaurants and attractions. Very nice rooms, hotel bars are cool. Would not recommend the hotel restaurant, service was not the best.

Grand Hotel Cavour was a beautiful hotel, I asked what it had been originally, and found out that it was a palace of the Boudouini family from the year 1500. In 1865 became a hotel when Florence became the capitol of Italy. The breakfast room still has original frescoes by the painter Galileo Chini.I was kindly provided the information by one of the employees at the front desk, she even wrote it down for me. The breakfast room and the breakfast were wonderful. The rooftop bar was amazing, offering beautiful views of Florence. Another plus of Grand Hotel Cavour was the staff, always welcoming, and helpful. Prior to our arrival the concierge, Elisa, was very helpful and arranged for a van to transport our family of seven to a algritourismo in the Tuscany countryside on our departure from Florence. In addition when Apple air buds were left in the van, the kind van driver returned them to the hotel and the hotel has arranged for them to shipped back to California, very much appreciated. The rooms were very nice, beds comfortable, amazing views from the rooms, great location within easy walking distance to points of interest, and the train station. I hope we return to Florence, and when we do we will definitely stay at the Grand Hotel Cavour

No problems. Lovely. Friendly

Hotel Cavour is amazing. The location is genuinely perfect for exploring Florence. The team at the hotel made our stay a delight. The rooftop is special. Overall 5 star hotel

Excellent location and Excellent staff. Rooftop bar was a great treat!

Great location that made walking to area sites very easy. The rooftop terrace and bar was really fantastic and offered some amazing views. The rooms were nice and a decent size.

Seeing how tired and jetlagged I was they let me check in early so I could rest.

Very convenient, close to duomo, palazzo vechio , restaurants etc

Amazing location! 2 minute walk to the Duomo Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very tasty

We booked a classic room. The size was decent. Large bathroom. Comfortable bedding (except pillows!) clean and modern. Nice staff. Good location.

Location was excellent fir the purpose of the trip.

Very clean room, huge windows and lovely view from the 5th floor. Comfortable and a great location for walking around the city.

Was very difficult to sleep, always a lot of noise coming from hallways and the outside even though we were on the 3rd floor:

First time back to Florence with kids and this hotel was a great choice. The morning breakfast was perfect to get the day started. Location can't be beat. Close to the action but not in a noisy area. Room was spacious and hotel staff was great.

Loved the rooftop bar and the breakfast was amazing
