The Plaza Hotel Lucchesi is a great place to stay in Florence. I have been staying here for 20 years and it is located very close to many attractions. It went through a renovation a few years ago that made it very fresh and improved. For the price it is a very good value and I highly recommend this hotel.
I was traveling alone in Florence for a week during the holidays. For Christmas the staff brought breakfast to the room which was a treat! Staff was very friendly and I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Home very much. The decor of the room was relaxing, really could not ask for more. I loved the illuminated bedside table. The city is so walkable that I felt the location of the hotel was perfect. Do not hesitate to book a room here If you are traveling on your own and wondering if this would be a good place to stay.
We went to Florence to run the Florence Marathon and the race started only 200 yards from the hotel door, so that was excellent. The race organisers used the hotel for the elite athletes so that was a good sign. Early breakfast on race day was real bonus and was of excellent standard. Staff were also excellent, kind and helpful when I needed help with printing boarding passes. However, the staff on the front desk didn't always make eye contact. The rooms are a little small. We had problems with our room safe but this was sorted efficiently and very promptly. However our friends in the next room had a similar problem which was never really sorted and also had problems with their fuse box. Overall, we would definitely recommend the hotel and stay there again.
My dad, brother, and I stayed at Hotel Orcagna and were very happy with our stay. It is within walking distance of many of Florence's attractions, such as the Duomo, Uffizi, etc. The only downside is that it is somewhat far from the train station. When we got to the hotel, we were very impressed with the room. It was spacious, clean, and modern looking. The hotel staff was knowledgeable and helped us settle into Florence with ease. Breakfast was simple, but sufficient.
Looking for a quick overnight in Florence, I landed on this place since well recommended. It is at the opposite end of the town (so attention: if coming in from the area of the stazioni, bus and train). But it's in a quiet neighborhood on a fairly main drag. Manager/hostess was terrific (Clara and, later, Alessandra). Recommendations for food by the former were spot-on (esp. Konnubio). Shower was great. TV had no English-language news: important for English-speaking travelers. Breakfast was a bit spare.
A large piazza greets visitors arriving at Santa Croce, the principle Franciscan church in Florence. This large complex dates back to the 13th century, and is the burial place for many notable Italians like Michelangelo, Galileo, and Machiavelli. The halls of this church are decorated with frescoes by Giotto.
