Good location, safe, friendly stuff, clean, comfortable, wonderful roof top.
Friendly staff, good location. Small room and bath but comfortable.
Too many stairs and the terrace was small.
The staff's courtesy was excellent, the service was good; with breakfast, coffee, tea time and the welcome drink made our stay very pleasant.
No warning that there is no lift. The walls are also quite thin so a lot of noise can be heard during the night from people coming in and out of the hotel.
Location Very helpful staff Roof top terrace for amazing view of the city
Very good service. They guy at the reception was amiable and very helping. Good help with the car parking.
The location and staff were excellent..The room was comfortable and clean.. The rooftop terrace was nice and had decent views..
The breakfast was meager to say the least.. and the stairs were a bit of chore after a long day walking around the city..
Centrally located - extremely helpful staff, good breakfast.
Located on third floor so be prepared to climb stairs. Nice terrace but with lots more stairs
Location perfect for visiting everywhere in Florence. Reception staff very welcoming and helpful. View from Terrance, particularly with complimentary glass of prosecco was lovely. Breakfast choice very good.
Lady serving breakfast was not very welcoming one morning - she appeared to find it stressful when the hotel was full and earlier guests had been 'very hungry'. Hence no jam etc was available when we politely enquired. However a minor glitch in what was otherwise a very enjoyable stay.
Excellent location in a heart of city
Localisation on 3th floor.
Staff was very friendly and very accomodating . Location could not be better. Breakfast was out of this world. I would recommend this hotel. It was an excellent value for Florence.
The three flights of steps up to the hotel could be challenging for some people. Accept their offer to help with the luggage when you first arrive. Consider the steps good exercise.
Conveniently located in a quiet area. Helpful staff. Impeccably clean. Tasty breakfasts. Stunning views from unique roof terrace.
Facilities and room size are constrained by the nature of the building. However some aspects are not well described particularly the very challenging sole access to the hotel using 4 flights of stone staircase. Our bathroom and balcony were minute and unusable for more than one at a time. Most disappointing was very lax room management i.e. unstocked refrigerator, dirty glasses, unreliable towel rail, unusable hair drier, inconsistent toiletries.
The Guys at the front desk were very helpful, the hotel is located on the third floor and without a elevator, the guys at the front desk were very helpful in bringing up the luggage and bringing it down at the time of check out. Hats off Guys!!!
Very rude behaviour of the lady and a boy who were on alternate duty, although they both didn't help any one during the breakfast yet very snobbish behaviour and attitude showed by them, during all four days
Staff, location, shops, sights and cafes nearbye
Lugging cases to 3rd floor and climbing 66 steps came as a shock. Not recommended for the unfit. Cramped breakfast area but food fine
The staff was great! Very knowledgeable of the city. Provided spot on directions on the city map to make it simple to navigate. Rooftop terrace with wonderful views.
There are 60+ steps to the lobby of this hotel but the staff will assist with your luggage.
We loved the view from the rooftop deck! We brought up a bottle of wine on our first night, and enjoyed the view of the Duomo and Florence. The staff was always really friendly. The location was great too. It wasn't too busy there but it was walking distance to everything.
It was by far the most uncomfortable bed I've slept in for awhile. I can fall asleep pretty easily, so it wasn't a huge problem for me personally.
The location was perfect for me, just couple of blocks away from Duomo. On a quite street (more like alley). The hotel seems to be new, hence i had no issues with cleanliness etc. My room was a bit too small, but i was a solo traveller.
the fact that there is no 24hrs reception (no staff after 23:00) was a bit inconvenient to me, as i was a solo traveller and that made me think twice abt hanging out at night. on the last day when i asked for a taxi to the airport the staff at the desk, could not confirm where the taxi would be waiting for me at and just asked me to wait downstairs by the door, no offer with help with luggage either. i managed to get the taxi, after going around the block and came back to the hotel to make the staff give a call to the taxi again.
terrace view is very beautiful. you don't need to go up the dome tower this hotel offer high quality services, for example, bath amenity and bed and breakfast, everything, owner would chose high quality service for customer. as to breakfast, especially, breads, fruits, yoghurt, tastes good. room wall was painted picture, flower, clock, illustrations. it was very pretty. as to bed, you could rest well. all of the staffs are very kind. they speak English very well. I would come back to Florence, because I'd like stay Hotel Cardinal of Florence. I voyaged Europe for two months, this hotel was the best hotel.
The hotel is situated at the 3rd floor. Be prepared to claim up the stairs although they will help you to carry the luggage. The room we've stayed was spacious with comfortable bed. The welcome drink and free mini bar are being offered at our surprise.
The air con cannot work well and is being controlled by the check-in desk. We cannot control to our expected temp.
This hotel has a great location and is just a short walk to the Duomo and other attractions. The absolute best thing was the roof top patio that had a beautiful panoramic view of Florence. The self-serve breakfast was adequate. The air conditing worked well. The hotel is up several flights of stairs and no elevator so if you don't like to climb stairs, this would not be a good choice.
The room was very small as was the bathroom, especially the shower.
staff were super friendly and helpful. Hotel is in great location and spotlessly clean.
Fantastic location and view from terrace!
Reception open only from morning 7-30 until 23-30
Location is excellent, walking distance from main attractions, rooms are clean, breakfast is very good. I definitely recommend this hotel.
The hotel is located on the 3rd floor with no elevator, so this is the only complain, but the staff helped us carrying the luggage.
Climbing three flights of stairs which were dirty and scary. We are in our 60s and this was too much. Handicapped people could not possibly get to the hotel. No elevator. When we checked out, they helped us with our luggage and called a taxi, which never showed up. We had to walk very far with all our luggage to get a cab. Hotel was clean and comfortable, but I don't recommend it because of these problems.
The Hotel Cardinal of Florence is priced right including a serve yourself breakfast. The view of Florence from the roof top is a huge bonus especially if you enjoy photography and/or sunset watching without the crowds. There's at least a dozen restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk and almost all of the attractions are not more than 15 minutes away. .
You should be prepared for the three flights of stairs to go up to the Hotel Cardinal and the same flight of stairs to go down - if you're into walking it shouldn't be a major strain but after a long flight or a long day you should ask for assistance if carrying luggage, etc.
