THE hotel already met our expectations but when we arrived in the morning for breakfast it was another surprise. As for breakfast in Italy you expect a croissant and coffee this was worth leaving the room!
Location is perfect. Breakfast place is also nice
Location is excellent, spacy room, excellent breakfast and it's location
Internet comnnection in first room was OK, in second room was poor. Had to change first room because of hindering noise. However next morning action was already take to fix it.
1. Good service and size of room 2. Breakfast is within expectation 3. Gym facility 4. Accessible to train station within 10mins of walk
Location excellent along with staff and breakfast
Location is great! Stuff friendly and helpful. Rooms are bigger than they are in most italian hotels.
If you live on 3th floor under the breakfast room , the noise of preparations will make you suffer from 6 o'clock in the morning
Location Common areas very comfortable Bed Concierge extremely nice and helpful
Everything Most wonderful staff. Great room.
Lovely place to stay in every way. Our room's view over the piazza was grand. Best breakfast during our trip. Glad we chose this hotel.
Weak WiFi but that's Italy's system, we hear.
Very polite, helpful and attentive staff. The property is well kept and in excellent condition. Rich breakfast. Very good location close to Santa Maria Novella, the railway station, the restaurants and the main sights.
The hotel was difficult to locate at the piazza since it has only a very small sign and the house number does not correspond to the one given in the address at Booking.com. Wifi signal was erratic (too many users). Small room and small breakfast room.
A very good hotel: Great location for tourism near major sites and yet close to the train station, the beautiful views of the Santa Maria Novella from the dining room, very nice facilities, nice rooms, very clean, very good service, friendly staff. We stayed there for five nights and liked it.
The only thing that prevents this hotel from being perfect is the breakfast -- the selection of foods is limited and most disappointingly the quality for the breads and pastries is simply poor (I paid the staff's attention for the first two days and then gave up)
Location, service, atmosphere, cleanliness
For the price, on the smaller side. Unstable wifi sometimes.
Comfortable bed and outstanding breakfast
Steps leading to main small door
Staff, facilities and overall experience. The breakfast was fit for a king.
Lorenzo was the desk clerk who checked us in, but acted more like a one man welcoming committee. First, we were upgraded to the top floor (Suite 501 with a terrace view of the Duomo) and then, since our room wasn't quite ready, took charge of our bags and took us to the bar where he informed the staff to get us whatever we wanted "on the house." 15 minutes later we were shown to our suite. A nice central location across the plaza from the Santa Maria Novella church and within walking distance to most everything we wanted to see. Breakfast on the 4th floor with a wonderful view of the plaza A rather new, wonderful boutique hotel.
What's not to like!
amazing service very friendly staff. great location.
Perfect location as we were travelling by train- only 5 minutes walk from the train station. View from the breakfast room of Santa Maria Novella basilica. 5 minutes walk from the Duomo and lots of other tourist sites and restaurants. Staff very polite. Beautiful decor. We had a room with a city view & could see across the roof tops which was stunning. Had a problem with water temperature in the shower but this was sorted quickly.
Wifi didn't seem to work
I loved this hotel's design. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The timepiece theme works beautifully and makes the hotel much more interesting than most. The public rooms artfully done and charming. Staff was very helpful.
I liked everything and have already told friends about this hotel.
An excellent hotel. Quiet and very comfortable. Right in the centre of Florence. We were able to walk everywhere. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay , would love to return.
The only down side was the fact that there were road works outside; but these will soon be finished and there was no noise from them. A very small inconvenience.
Beautiful decor and design, comfortable bed, great bathtub, very helpful polite staff, good wifi connection, excellent breakfast, convenient location close to SMN train station.
Everything was wonderful.
Close proximity to high end shopping and sight seeing. Very clean and comfortable - an absolutely must. Only 5 rooms so very secure whilst still very private. Wonderfully helpful staff. Boutique feel - felt like a local!
Rooms are quite small and bathroom was tight (though I much prefer a smaller clean room over a larger grotty one any day!).
This was an excellent hotel in excellent location too. We stayed here for 4 nights and is only a short walk from main train station and only a short walk to all prime locations within Florence. Hotel is clean, staff friendly, and has a nice library next to the lounge area. I also like the watch theme they have around the hotel. The front desk was also very helpful in recommending tours and restaurants for us. Thank you hotel L'orologio for making our stay with you be wonderful. We look forward to stay here again in the near future.
There was no iron facilities to use in the room if you wanted to iron the clothing yourself. Only iron facilities is if the hotel does it for you for a extra surcharge
Rooms are beautifully appointed and the beds are very comfortable.
Road works outside - but not the fault of the hotel.
Very helpful staff Good breakfast New facility
Too many pictures of branded watches very boring particularly in the room
