                    • Wonderful location excellent value, great Hotel and as Good as It Gets for the Price. Friendly and helpful staff, nice hosts, the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

                      The bathroom was tiny, choices at breakfast were limited.

                    • The location is great and the hotel is good. Staff is really nice, breakfast is very simple and same every day, perfect choice for being as close to Galleria Academia as possible.

                      The internet works very poorly.

                    • Proximity to the historic centre and all main historical attractions within walking distance. The hotel staff were fabulous, the breakfast was quite good for European style and all the personnel were very kind, helpful. The room was big.

                      Secondly, the location could not be better, the balcony is not as nice as the picture shows; is not well maintained.

                      The beds were very hard, the breakfast was adequate.

                    • Great location for Florence sights, just blocks from the Duomo and good and reasonably priced restaurants nearby. The hotel staff were wonderful and the front desk was particularly helpful and friendly. The room was clean and breakfast was adequate.

                      The shower was very small.

                    • Perfect location good breakfast and just 2 blocks from the Duomo. The hotel team was great and the room was superb and a pleasure to call home every night. The staff were delightful and bathrooms were extremely clean. No meat, cheese, eggs and vegetables of any kind were present.

                      A renovated old house that has been reconverted.

                    • The location is perfect, nice place to visit Florence and price is cheap. Staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean, the food is DELICIOUS.

                      In an expensive accomodation city, gioia is excellent value and the lobby is run down, the stair ways are steep and dirty. The bathroom is very small and the breakfast is too simple. Fresh fruits would be great.
