                dingey rooms. super noisy street so bring earplugs to sleep. Like many Italian hotels, thay haven't figured out how to install a soap tray.

                The staff is really very nice, all of them. It has a familiar atmosphere, it's very cozy. We can borrow movie DVD's, books or guides and use the internet for free (if you don't have computer or smartphone, they have two internet points). The localization is good, only ten minutes far from duomo. And we also liked the breakfast.

                The bed was very uncomfortable. The bedroom was a bit small and dark. The building is old.

                Staff was extremely polite, friendly and accommodating. Loved the video DVD library including guides on the city of Florence. Staff also made excellent restaurant recommendations. Wonderful breakfast and choice of beverages served in the morning--best breakfast during our three week travel through Europe.

                It was a welcoming place from start to finish and a great place to stay for our last night in Italy. The room was classy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lavish and delicious. The staff and owners went to great lengths to make us feel comfortable. What really blew me away was the offer to take us to the airport for free, when I asked the front desk clerk to call me a cab. The owner (Roberto) wouldn't even accept my offer of gas money. I will definitely stay again when I return to Florence. And all of this was offered for a very modest price.

                The hosts were excellent and went out of their way to make you feel welcome. Suggested an excellent restasurant around the corner. A relatively short walk down to Accademia.

                Not in the middle of the city, but some people complain about noise which was not an issue here, However, the walk to Accademia was short and the bus stops right outside the hotel, and the hosts were very helpful and freindly.

                This was an excellent hotel. The staff was courteous and extremely helpful, pointing out great restaurants and helping to plan activities. We stayed there 9 days and when we checked out and asked for a cab to go to the airport, imagine my surprise when one of the owners said he had planned on driving us to the airport. Free of charge. The breakfast was good. The rooms were large and clean. The weather was hot. Thankfully the air conditioning worked perfectly. Our room #7 had a small balcony. The hotel is a 20 minute walk to the Duomo and a 10 minute walk to the Accademia where the statue of David arrive. The restaurant reccommendations were excellent. We look forward to visiting Florence again and definitely staying at this hotel.

                I loved everything about this hotel!

                This was my first trip to Florence and the trip was made all the more enjoyable with my stay in hotel giglio. This is a fantastic hotel with great staff who attend to your every need. Thanks to Marco and Luca who answered all questions with efficiency and a friendly smile. The double room was very spacious and the breakfast was delicious with a great choice of cereals,fruit and pastries. With just a 10 min walk to the duomo the location was perfect. I would highly recommend a stay in hotel giglio.

                Good location, 10 min walk to the Duomo/Campanile. Excellent breakfast, very nice and helpfulg staff! Public Parking possible 5 mins away, but expensive on weekdays. Maybe it's better to choose the garage for 15 Euro per day.
