    The location of the hotel is unbeatable. It is right next to the Duomo at the heart of the old city. The hotel is in an old building with antique furnishings and partly preserved frescos on the ceiling and walls. Our room was in the corner with the Duomo and the main square visible from both windows. The rooms are well maintained, clean and comfortable. This hotel offers good value for money.

    There is no air conditioning and the wifi which is available only in the public area did not work most of the time. The private toilet/bath rooms are outside the rooms.

    Staff was very friendly, the room was clean, and you can't beat the location.

    It was a bit noisy. You're right by the Duomo, but it's not just the noise from the street. Even though the other guests were quiet, the locks and the elevator made a bunch of noise. It was difficult to stay asleep.

    you looking for a cheep place in the center of florence where everything it's right close to your staying? This is the right place where to stay. Humble location but with all you need to rest well. Are you hungry? Go to visit Toscanella osteria, passed Ponte Vecchio on the right inside...excellent!!!

    We only stayed one night, but found the hotel to be quite nice. We had a triple room with private bathroom and the room itself was quite large! it was also clean and comfortable. The view from our window was the Duomo, which was amazing! The location of Albergo San Giovanni is terrific! After already being in Italy for a couple weeks, we really appreciated that there was a small elevator so we didn't have to carry our luggage up the stairs. Umberto was very friendly and made our "after hours" check in seamless. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to others!

    Stayed in the annex B&B. Location was great - walking distance to train station and all the sites. Huge room however bathroom was small. Ludovico was a great host and recommended a bunch of great places to eat.

    Breakfast was from 8:30 to 10:30. A little too late if you're trying to get moving early. Breakfast was limited anyways and not something you will be satisfied with.

    Wi-fi is poor you need to stay to the lobby to get connected.

    The location was good

    No tv , no cffee or tea, staff unavailable most of the time. Very confusing at the time of arrival as there was no one to welcome us. We were late treading the email with instructions....

    Location is really fantastic, it must not be place in florence better than albergo san giovanni, umberto was very kind host, we were there for 2 nights and were absolutely satisfied.

    Because of central location duomo square is always full of people and there was a little noisy

    Albergo San Giovanni is a very lovely hotel with a warm homely feel to it. It also feels a very safe and secure environment. The owner was really polite and welcoming. Beautifully quaint room and interior and very clean and comfortable. Fantastic location right in the city center of Florence so easy to get to anywhere we wanted to explore on foot. This was my second stay at Albergo San Giovanni and I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to family and friends.

    Very nice location, 2 blocks from Florence Cathedral. Reception is very nice. Friendly staff.

    Very old building. Wifi from slow to no connection. Not recommended for travel in winter. Because the warm water for heating is closed from sometime around 24:00. The room is freezing cold in the night. My friends and I all caught cold after the two cold nights.

    Bathroom was not comfortable and far from the room.

    Very good location with a friendly owner who made us a delicious breakfast at a time convenient for us. A decent size room with a nice view onto one of the squares.

    A little bit of mould in the (very small!) bathroom and we saw quite a few bugs around. The bed was a little uncomfortable. It was a little hard to find.

    Great location. Rooms are quite clean and comfortable. Triple room is reli nice. The staffs are willing to give you some useful guidance of Florence.

    Bathroom can be improved.

    The manager was exceptional at the Annex. Very close to the Duomo, parking and the train station. Very secure. Good breakfast. If you are just looking for a place to sleep and shower with a good breakfast and a great location, than the Annex can work for you. It is very inexpensive.

    The Annex room had broken light fixtures in both the room and bathroom. The floors were not very clean. The whole room is very dingy looking.
