    Exceptional

    Very helpful and nice staff, refreshed room (carpets and walls), nice bathroom, very good location, parking option, price-quality ratio is very good!

    The street the hotel is located at is noisy when windows are open, but when closed all is fine, for conditioning system works well.

    Superb

    Excellent location, very easy to find and quick access to train station. The city was extremely busy in September, but it was easy to reach less touristy areas of the city from Hotel Gioia as well as the main attractions E.G. 5 mins to Duomo and 10 mins walk to River Arno. It was very hot in Florence in mid-September (about 32 degrees c) but the air- conditioning worked very well and it was comfortable to sleep in the room. Room was also very quiet even though it was close to the reception area and also had an excellent, free Wi-Fi signal.

    Choices at breakfast were limited.

    Superb

    This was a last minute booking and we needed 3 rooms. We were very happy with everything, particularly the location and you could walk to all of the major sights in Florence. It was also very quiet and in a very safe area. The front desk was particularly helpful and friendly.

    A very friendly and helpful staff who recommended excellent neighborhood restaurants for dinners. Also, a perfect location, five minutes from the Academy in one direction, the Uffizi in the other.

    Very good

    The staff were delightful and very helpful. The room was clean and quite spacious.

    The room was noisy at night (traffic and people passing outside) even with the windows tightly closed. The breakfast was adequate.

    Superb

    Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast provided (croissants, breads, jams, cheese/meat spreads for bread, juice, fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, espresso, cappucino). Comfortable bed/room with an excellent location.

    The shower was VERY small.

    Very friendly and helpful English speaking staff. The hotel is clean and very well located in the old city centre. All main historical attractions within walking distance. Simple but nice design. Excellent value for money.

    Guest rating

    Hotel is within walking distance to the Duomo. However, it is very far getting from the main bus and train station to this location. The best option afterhours is a taxi which will cost about 15 euros one way.

    The balcony is not as nice as the picture shows; it is not well maintained. Watch out for the friendly older Italian man; he lkes to touch, caress, and hug females and kiss their hands. Do be left alone with him!

    Exceptional

    The room was huge for an Italian hotel! Breakfast was good (pastries and freshly made coffee by barista) too! Also, the manager spoke good English and provided great advice on where to get advanced tickets for the Academy.

    We stayed here for several nights. On the final night, we saw a young man smoking in the doorway that led to the hotel. This is normally common for restaurants and stores, but never for hotels. We were surprised to see him because this was the first time. We later found out he was a hotel employee and were disappointed that he was lingering outside the hotel like that...unprofessional. I later had a run in with the man later when my Wifi password did not work. He refused to give me a new wifi password saying I used my 24 hours of time. This was frustrating because 1) I did not use all my time and 2) I was staying many nights so it doesn't make sense that I should be allowed the same 24 hours that someone staying one night gets.

    The hotel staff were wonderful, and the location was central to all the Florence sites. We really enjoyed our visit.
