    Wonderful Stay!

    The location of this hotel is perfect! We could walk to everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooftop deck was delightful with amazing views! Our deluxe room was very comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay!

    Heart of Firenze Heritage Bldg With Modern Reno

    I'm a very fussy chooser of hotels. For well known cities, like Firenze, that offer many choices, it's often hard to switch what you already know. Calimala just opened and the rate was interesting. The hotel is 5 star appointed with best in class bathrooms, fixtures, windows etc. And Location: heart of the heart of the town so coming in and out all day is breeze. Finally, fantastic roof top bar that is a great base camp for all your mid-day, pre-dinner relaxing. Should become a destination for locals alike!

    Fantastic in Florence!

    Hotel was recently opened and amazing! The room was high end with style including Missoni linens. The location could not be beat. The rooftop bar was a highlight after a long day of sightseeing with great views of the city during sunset!

    5/5 Excellent

    Pros: Fantastic location, friendly staff, very comfy bed, great rooms, great service, the rooms are fairly quiet despite a noisy city, stocked fridge, 24 hour check in. Cons: slippery shower, strange toggle in the shower, it is apparently an SOS, would be nice if it were labeled. Was hesitant to book since at the time of booking there were 0 reviews, so glad we stayed at hotel Calimala, they exceeded all expectations. Would happily stay again.
