We were five girls and stayed in a room for three and two people. The rooms were spacious and connected through a big balcony. The rooms are not new but really clean. The breakfast is typical Italian Style with white bread, jam, coffe and joghurt. It's enough for a good start into the day. The staff is realky friendly and...

My family of 3 adults spent 3 fabulous nights in Florence and the hotel of our choice had been Gioia. The hotel occupies one whole building (not large) and the location is superb - no more than 5 minutes on foot from the Duomo. Infact, if you get the 3rd floor room overlooking Via Cavour you even get your private...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Gioia Florence early October 2016 and had the most amazing experience. This is a gem of a find in the Florence area that is just far enough away from the noise but still walking distance to any sights and wonderful restaurants. Highly recommend! We stayed 2 weeks all over Italy and in hotels, AirBnb's...

Had some great conversations with the staff, Tiziano, Roberto etc. the hotel is five minutes walk to the duomo, and ten minutes to the train station, highly recommended and felt sad to leave after nearly a week there.

The location is about 5 min walk away from Duomo. Like you, I thought this might be too 'far' from Duomo, as there were some other options that were closer to Duomo and more expensive because of it. But once I got here I realised there isn't really not that much difference. You walk 5 min maximum and if that...

Hotel Gioia is in a fantastic location, within easy walking distance to all the main attractions in Florence. The decor is a little bit dated but the hotel and rooms are spotlessly clean. The real highlight of this hotel is the staff. They are always smiling and are so helpful and attentive. My sister hurt her back while we were...
