Travelling alone I liked the idea of having to buzz in to gain access. I loved the apartment, was roomy but not overdone, the breakfast was one of the best I had in Italy. Only thing is if you room's window in on the street it can get a bit noisy on Saturday night, but this wouldn't deter me from...

A good option for those looking for a comfortable hotel to a decent price. The hotel was in close proximity to all major attractions, located next to one of the central squares. The continental breakfast also served its purpose and gave one a pretty good start. The rooms offered were reasonably basic, but both well-kept and spacious. The hotel personnel...

Lovely staff and perfect place for us. Breakfast in the morning and just enough space for us to be comfortable and relax when we were in the room which was not often. Great location as Sante Croce is full of great restaurants and piazzas. 10m walk to all the great sites .

Hotel Dante is a nice place to stay while you're in Florence. The staff is incredibly helpful, and my room was clean and felt safe. The location is wonderful. Breakfast was just alright. The website is misleading in that it indicates that there is a free shuttle to the airport, but that is not the case. For the price, this...

Hotel is located near Santa Croce Church, which a 13 min walk from Duomo. Service in this hotel is 10 stars, specially Belal, who is so friendly and helpful to any kind of questions/requests we had. Just one point, restroom supplies/soap/shampoo is not renewed everyday - but i think they'll give it to you if asked. Late checkout is not...

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and we were immediately impressed with how friendly and helpful all the staff were. From arrival to check out, we couldn't have asked for better service - thank you! The room was very clean and comfortable, also much larger than expected. The location was superb - felt like a really safe area, only...

I stayed in this hotel over the fall when I was visiting my family in the city and I've never felt more at home, in the space, with the layout of the rooms originally designed for famous Italian actors with basic living quarters. I found inspiration, peace and all the support I needed to feel completely at home in the...

Right around the corner from St. Croce cathedral and next to the Michaelangelo museum, so very central. Charming old hotel with lovely courtyard, beautiful coffee room and breakfast, and most importantly, very friendly, helpful, staff, especially Bilal and the owner, Federica.

I absolutely love this little hotel right on the outskirts of the centre of Florence! walking distance to everything, but slightly out of the way that its not noisey come night time. Staff are so welcoming and friendly, they cannot be faulted. The room was large and clean, bed comfy and soft, a little too soft for my husband, but...

Hotel Dante is a lovely quaint little hotel and very central for exploring Florence. The staff are very kind and helpful. We enjoyed our stay there and would certainly return. Our room was large and clean with very nice bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and we felt sad to say goodbye. No hesitation in recommending Hotel Dante.
