Perfect location in Florence!
I stayed 2 weeks in the Benivieni, in August 2016. It was a delightful experience and I can only say positive things about my stay there. The location is incredible....literally a few minutes walk from the magnificent Piazza Del Duomo, the Piazza Della Signoria, the Piazza Della Republica, Academia, all the major churches and museums. There are also many nearby shops for groceries, supplies, banks and cash machines, and of course any number of restaurants and cafes for all budgets. The hotel is exceptionally quiet, clean, beautifully and tastefully decorated (warm colours, pietra serena stairs, beautiful wood furniture, paintings and prints on the walls) and has everything one could possibly need, including reliable wifi in the room, a lift, and an excellent same-day laundry service. My room, a single, was on the second floor and faced the back. Extremely quiet and relaxing,impeccably cleaned each morning. Very good shower and bath facilities. The staff was very warm, welcoming and friendly, and my return taxi to the airport was booked without any problem. The price was very reasonable for the quality of this charming hotel. I most certainly will return, and I recommend the Benivieni without hesitation!
