Score from 174 reviews Very good
The advice on the viewpoint and cafes is very helpful. Thanks so much for the father and brothers for helping the heavy luggage. The private bath room is very nice with their original shampoo. Thank you very much for upgrading the room for me. I feel at home because of your service.
Everything is fine with me.
The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful, they ran down to carry up our bags! Great ideas for nearby places to eat and bakery.
The location, while not directly near the center of town, was good. We arrived and left by train and the station was very close. The staff was quite helpful and welcoming. The stairs were not nearly as bad as some reviews state: there are a lot of stairs but the rise in each step is small.
The room felt damp and there was a bad smell - even when we opened the windows. Everything felt a bit run-down. Though the room was quite large, it was only sparsely furnished.
After reading the reviews, I decided to stay here, and it's proved a good choice. Good Value in peak season. Very close to train station, and in walking distance you can easily get to everywhere in Florence.The building itself has no elevator, but the owner helped us with all our luggage. The son was so kind and helpful making the plans for our 4-day stay in Florence and helped book tickets for Uffizi. They gave us many useful information before we get there by email. I will definitely stay there again when I visit Florence.
Very warm hosts who were willing to provide information on restaurants to try. Room was spacious enough to not feel cramped although the bathroom was small. No bidette. The bus station and train station are just around the corner so gettring out of town for self-guided trips is easy (like to Siena by bus or to the Cinque Terre by train). The hotel is four stories up so if you don't like climbing stairs this would not be a good choice. You do get help carrying bags up and down the steps. Air conditioning worked well.
We do not have anything negative to say. They do not provide breakfast but that was really not a problem as there are plenty of places nearby to eat.
The location is just great. The wonderful personalized assistance and service they provided.
The stairs are daunting and no lift but they provide assistance with the luggage.
Alexander was great. Location was perfect.
Bed was uncomfortable
Helpful and informative owners. Good location fifteen minutes walk from station and from historic centre.
No breakfast. Climbing 93 steps at the end of a long, busy day.
Spaciousness of rooms
Very kind and helpful staff, help us with the heavy luggage, and give us a lot of advice on food, shopping and sight seeing. Special thanks for making a reservation of Uffizi Gallery for us on very short notice.
No elevator, but the staff will help you. Nothing to complain about.
Host family is nice and helpful Room is elegant and tidy Very clean 5 minute walk to train station
Without an escalator, but it's an ancient building so you can't complain about it
Enjoyed the location and breakfast.
Excellent staff, friendly and helpful. Nice room with shower in the room and private toilet. Good location
Location is near the central station. Son of the boss is helpful who helped us to get the luggage upstairs which is no lift.
Such nice friendly people They go out of the way to help you. Rooms very spacious
There are quite a few stairs to come up but that didn't bother us - son will carry bags up if you need anyway
good location, nearby the rail station, good value for money, such lovely family run this hotel, the family gave us helpful advise of restraurant and visiting route
no lift, but they helped to carry our luggages, no big sign, need to keep an eye on the no. of building
A family who pride themselves on service with a capital 'S'. On our road trip throughout Europe over the past 70 days this was our best hotel experience. Perfect location to explore Florence from.
1. Location 2. Room is huge and comfortable. 3. the owner is very good
1. there is no lift, it's VERY important if you have heavy luggage. they are on the top floor, which is equal 6-10th floors compare to the normal apartment. I won't recommend it if you have heavy luggage. other than that, everything is fine.
We like the place. Our room is so big, my kids love it. The hospitality of the owner.
Their son helped us with all our luggage(we packed for a year ) and assisted us to the train station. They definitely had a " Can do" attitude.
There are many hotels in Florence, but the Bellevue is something incredibly special. It's a gorgeous family-run hotel that takes pride in providing it's guests with an authentic and sincere experience Florence. The family (Luciano, Susan and Alessandro) are so kind-hearted and are very attentive hosts. They went out of their way to make our time in Florence wonderful, with Luciano providing us with details of fabulous authentic places to eat (we took him up on every one of his suggestions and were never disappointed) and visit (he got us last minute reservations to the Galleria dell'Accademia so that we could see Michaelangelo's David before we left for Rome), Alessandro went out of his way to help us numerous times, including finding us a cab at the last minute when we very sure we had missed our train (thanks to him and some Providence, our train was delayed just long enough for us not to have missed it after all!), and Susan is just the nicest person! The room we were in was very large and the bed was very comfy. There are stairs, but you get used to them and it helped keep us fit after all the gelato that we ate.
Absolutely nothing at all. The place was wonderful.
Staff helpful and children friendly, rooms spacious and clean - we felt very safe!
Alessandro sent us an email prior to our stay which was extremely helpful for finding the hotel and giving us information about Florence. The room was very nice and comfortable - tv, wireless, A/C and small refridgerator were excellent.
Alex and his dad were extremely helpful with fantastic recommendations on what to see and where to eat . Alex even carried,our bags up the steps and the email with information I received from them was brilliant and really helpful
We loved the location, room and the staff. A traditional room in a historic building in old florance, yet with modern facilities and comforts. Great for our family of 4. Considering the really good value, perhaps the best night of our 2.5 weeks.
