Great location close to the Florence sites. Very friendly staff. Room was clean and comfortable. I slept like a baby both nights I was there. Breakfast buffet was exceptional. The funky way they have constructed and decorated this hotel made me feel like I was staying at a much more expensive place, but it was actually very affordable. Would stay again if I return to Florence.
The plaza Lucchesi is a great place to stay. The staff are very welcoming, speak excellent english, (whilst putting up with my feeble attempts in italian), and went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. We ate in the restaurant three times. The food, (regional) and wine was very good and the service exemplary. Breakfast was a feast! The hotel is well appointed and spotlessly clean. The maid service was discreet and our room was a delight to return to at the end of a tiring day in the museums and galleries.
The hotel is located in a beautiful museum like building near the center of Florence. Both the public areas and our room were on a grand scale with high ceilings adorned with classical painting. The furnishings were very classic and comfortable.
The Uffizi Gallery, Duomo and Ponte Vecchio etc. are just a short walk. The staff could not be friendlier, more helpful or accommodating.
Hotel Home Florence, was like home to us. The staff was very nice and courteous and very helpful. The room was on the third floor facing the front of the building, with the extra shutters inside, it was a quiet room. Everything is white so it makes it look bigger than it was, but for our needs it was just great. The breakfast was fantastic with an a-ray of different croissants, fruits, cereals, meats, eggs, etc. Their is even a pool table above the eating area, which was cool, open after meals. It was walking distance to the attractions in Florence. Restaurants not far from the hotel in Plaza area. The staff is helpful in telling you where to go and to help you get a cab, when they are not in strike, to take you to the train station or other sites. We recommend this to any couple who wants piece & quiet when they are traveling, ask to be on the 4th floor also.
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.
