Reviewed 13 July 2015

Hotel Giglio is a 3 Star hotel with 5 Star attitude! The owners Marco and Manuela are fantastic. They are accommodating and helpful. They really know how to provide top hotel service. Also, Luca at the front desk provided so much information and recommendations that were great. If you are going to Florence this hotel should be your hotel, the location is very convenient walk to the Accademia Museum and the David! We also love this neighborhood as a jumping off point to everything. Our room was very large and clean. We had twins beds for our daughters and the adjoined beds for us! The room had everything we needed. The breakfast is a wonderful start to the day and very fresh! Thank you Marco, Manuela and Luca!!

Room Tip: Explain to management what you need, they will accommodate you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Giglio. The location was perfect and the graciousness of the owners made the experience that much more enjoyable. We were greeted initially by Roberto, who welcomed us when we arrived late at night. The next morning we enjoyed a lovely breakfast and conversation with Manuela and Marco. They were incredibly kind and helpful throughout our entire stay. The hotel rooms were very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The hotel is walking distance from everything: the train station and all main attractions in Florence. Overall, we give Hotel Giglio the highest review. A great hot, but above all, it was the owners that made our experience so special. We will return for sure and we highly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Florence!

Very knowledgable and accomodating staff whether it be directions, information, calling a cab or helping with our luggage. Walking distance to Doumo and most main attractions. Clean, nice continental breakfast. Was very happy with my this and would absolutely return!

like other reviews, we loved this hotel. Charming, welcoming, comfortable and clean.
We stayed three nights - we moved from room 19 (street side) to room 10 (bigger with large bathroom) as the noise from the street was a bit loud for us given we had been travelling a lot and needed to catch up on some sleep. Staff were very easy to deal with and we liked the fact that it was close enough to the city center, but in a reasonably quiet area. The staff could not have been more attentive. Cannot recommend more highly. there is a laundromat nearby at San Gallo it is coin operated eg 1 euro for 10 minutes drying etc which is very handy for people like us travelling for four weeks!
also there is a really good restaurant nearby #50 out of 2000 - it is Antico Trattoria Da Tito - it is 5 minutes away but a MUST when in Florence - you may need to book in advance - one of the best casual dining reasonable priced restaurants in Florence with excellent food and wine and service

Room Tip: suggest a quieter room off the street eg room 10

I cannot recall another hotel where the staff were so friendly and helpful. It took me 20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the main sdquare and the Duomo.
It was my first visit to Florence and the staff were a mine of information on everything I needed to know If like me you wish to visit the opera house and ask in the stereet you will probably be directed to the old opera house. The hotel staff had forewarned me of the location of the new opera house - a good hour's walk but it was worth it.

Solo Australian traveller - I stayed in a single room with a single bed, but room was spacious, and bathroom and bedroom very clean. Breakfast was nice. Marco, his wife and his brother are wonderful hosts, and so welcoming and could not do enough to help all their guests, nothing was a bother. As they are the owners, I guess they have a vested interest, but do it properly. However, it's up 2 flights of stairs (with luggage in mind), and the elevator is tiny. Would stay there again.
