“to be re-visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

I can not agree with the comment regarding a flawed establishment. If you are not afraid of walking, yes the hotel is walking distance from the station, and also walking distance from all the sights..if you want to experience Florence ...go by foot..Simone and the rest of the staff were so friendly , helpfull and we even shared some jokes . You do have free wifi in the dining room and we even had our "take away" dinner in the dining room one evening.Rooms were clean and we had no problems with the temperature in the room. They organised a day trip for us to Lucca and Pisa and it was most enjoyable...they also arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport as it was pouring with rain . I can only give good comments about this experience in Hotel Goldoni, and as I stayed in Italy for 35 days I surely think I can give objective remarks!

City hotel, quiet, no view except onto another window. Reasonable shower and nice and clean. You do not get kettles in the rooms, so if you need a hot drink you have to get one made in the hotel 3euro I think. Breakfast was extremely basic. Cornflakes or coco pops as cereal. Packet cakes or croissants, bread rolls or packet French toast. Coffee or tea (various choice of tea bags) they did have yogurts, but if none out you have to ask for one which are kept in a fridge underneath. Woe betide you if you help yourself if no staff around-I felt the staff were a little mean with the breakfast. No fruit and sometimes no tables. Eating out can be expensive and you certainly don't get the vegetables that we get here, so buy fruit from the markets and keep it in your room which has a fridge. Air. Con worked although a little noisy on full speed. I would probably not stay here again 7 nights was too long, no lounge to sit in and the room felt like a box as it in the middle of the hotel. October was a great month to visit Florence, warm in the day but sometimes windy at night. And a little to cold to sit outside, could have done with a lounge to sit and read in rather than sitting on bed. I don't know what we paid for this hotel as the flights were included in our package - about £1200 for two b&b only.

The hotel goldoni is very well located, pretty near to the central station of Florence and just a block from river Arno. Furthermore the owners Simone and Alessandra have always been very kind and helpful.

Pietro welcomes you to this marvelous, reasonably priced hotel where Mozart once stayed. (It's been redecorated since then!) The room was newly refurbished, beautiful, spacious and overlooked the street. Just a short walk from the Arno and conveniently located to restaurants and the train station, the Goldoni was our introduction to Florence and our two-week stay in Tuscany. The staff was most gracious, handling multiple guests with professionalism and courtesy. Breakfast is served in a lovely room with period appointments. Some of the best pastries, Italian coffee and fruit we encountered were served here on white linen tablecloths. One of the best features: the lift! Definitely "open-ironwork vintage," it works perfectly and saved us from hauling luggage to the second-floor reception area and rooms, definitely not a given in Florence's boutique hotels! We loved the all-inclusive price--nothing extra for water in the mini-bar or cappuccino at breakfast. We look forward to returning to the Goldoni on our next trip to Tuscany.

Room Tip: Although our room overlooked the street, it was quiet. We heard no traffic sounds other than the occ...

Excellent location, nice staff, price very attractive for being inside city centre, really inside Florence downtown. Nice and spatious room for the rated cost, beautiful flat TV and very convenient Internet access. Breakfast Was large with a fantastic Italian cappuccino and several salted and sweet assortments. Sorroundings are not noisy at all, had very relaxed slept.

Near to the city center on the second floor of an old building. Rooms are a bit out of date but clean and QUIET witch is very important when you are on a city trip. The staff is very friendly and helpful and a great breakfast when whe compare to other more expensive hotels whe stayed in.

It’s not so bad as I read in some of the previous comments- we had a good size comfortable room- very quiet with a window to the internal yard, bathroom also with a decent size.
The most important thing for me- silence in the night, and it was a perfect silence, absolutely no problem with sleeping.
Attentive nice staff.
Good location- close to all main points and to the train station, some normal price cafes and a few supermarkets near the hotel.
Two negative things- poor breakfast- no cold meets or cheeses, which we can find in many 2 stars hotels, just a small quantity of the brioches- I suspect people who came later don’t find it already, But it was not a big problem for us.
The problem was a shower- so weak that it was difficult to shower. If it will be good I should be satisfied with the hotel.
