        All great, nothing I can say against anything. Room was beautiful and staff were excellent. Will definitely stay there again if I go back to Firenze

        Its location

        The very limited continental breakfast was poor, fresh bread was limited, only apples were available in the fruit section, the tea I was drinking ran out on the 1st day wasnt replaced. Really everything was long life nothing fresh, which for the price was a disappointment

      • Family with children
        10.0

        The room was large and well-equipped. Staff extremely solicitous. Especially liked that it was an early check-in and we were allowed to leave our luggage during the day until our train departed. One staff member took a lot of time to suggest restaurants, museums, etc.

        I thought that the room we had booked was the room shown. The room provided to us was not the same room, and much plainer (no frescoes) which was a major reason for booking. Our only other very minor complaint was that not all of the drinking glasses for a triple room (3 glasses) were replaced on the 2nd day, and we had to ask for toilet paper replacements a few times because we ran out.

        Beautiful rooms, friendly, great location.

        Not well insulated from the noise of the street, but did not bother us a great deal.

        Location in florence is excellent - room was lovely - ask for a room in the back - on the street it is very noisy

      • Couple
        5.0

        After our bad first night (see bad points..), we were moved for our second night to another room. It was in the same building, but we think was actually a room at Allora b&b, a separate business. This room was great, really nice and clean and large, although just a standard room. However, imoirtant to note that this was a room at Allora, not Residenza Castiglioni!!

        On arrival we were told we'd been upgraded to a suite. Sounded fantastic, but wasn'T. (We suspect this happened because they'd somehow got the bookings wrong). The "suite" was outside the rest of the hotel building, and we had to ring the doorbell to be let in for breakfast. The suite was an old and probably once grand room, but although large with a mezzanine (for the bed) it was the stuffiest room I've ever been in! I an attempt to be "baroque", it was overfilled with unecessary stuff - it looked like 10 Italian grandmas had died and donated their furniture and that it had then been put in without a cleaning! The bathroom smelled exceptionally bad - we ended up cleaning the ventilation and flushing the toilet with washingup liquid ourselves to make it bearable. The furniture was old and stuffy with dusty ribbons and cloths everywhere. There were ancient technical devices on display (why?), and we actually had to get quite drunk to bear spending the night in the room....Besides this, the wifi does not extend to the rooms, everyone sat in the reception to use it. Also, finding the hotel is v difficult, and the guy they sent out to meet us was rude. We had to park in a nearby garage - they charged us loads..

        the staff are very nice

        some staff can speak Italian only, a bit difficult to communicate in English. need improvement for the choices of the breakfast

        Impressed with the way they handled our request for a doctor. All staff were courteous and professional. Any requests were handled quickly. Breakfasts were delicious. Room large and comfortable. Would recommend hotel to family and friends.

        There could have been another table to put items on. There was a table which one of us used and the other person had to put their things on the floor.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The location was perfect. The room was roomy, especially for Europe, and the facilities were great. Breakfast each morning was very nice.

        One of the people who ran the desk some days didn't have a great command of English; however, he was very pleasant and helpful, and we were able to understand one another with a bit of trying.

        very spacious room! Very much appreciated all the space to relax...

      • Single
        7.4

        Large Room, good location, nice breakfast.

        Breakfast could have had more variety, in the shower of my room water seemed to drain slowly (went up while showering). Not all staff was fluent in english.
