Very close to central florencePosted Apr 7, 2015
The staff were extremely friendly. Hotel looks a bit run down, but if it's loacation you're after, this place is perfect. A 2 minute walk to statue of David, 5 min to pointe vecchio. Lots of shopping within a 2 minute walk

Hotel molto comodo, posizione strategicaPosted Mar 2, 2015
Molto buono, hotel non spettacolare ma bello! Ottimo personale gentile, camere pulite, colazione forse un po troppo povera. Rapporto qualità prezzo eccellente!

Basic hotel. Great location!Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Rooms could be renovated.
Location: Duomo climb is worth every step!
If you are interested in exploring Florence, you are going to have to walk a bit. This hotel is a short walk from the Duomo and every other major sight is very walkable. We walked from the train station and it was no problem. The room we had was very basic, and it is a 3 star but the staff were very friendly and accommodating and I would not hesitate to recommend the place or stay here again.

Nice hotel in great locationPosted Sep 30, 2014
Hotel Gioia was an enjoyable stay. The staff is excellent. Each staff member we came in contact with had a smile on their face and was anxious to answer any question or concern. The location is fantastic! The Duomo is 5 minutes or less and the train station is an easy walk. Our room had a step up and a step down in the room and the bathroom was very small, but with hotels in the older parts of the city center this is fairly common. Overall a very pleasant stay and would consider staying there again.

GoodPosted Sep 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice hotel. Not recommended to walk to from station with lots of luggage. Take taxi-less than 10 euro. You'll thank me later. Breakfast was kind of lacking. Espresso and cappuccino were good though. Our room was large. Noise from street didn't bother us, added to the experience. Room was fine. Temperature good. Bed comfy enough. Bathroom long and narrow but got the job done. Safe for valuables was there. Felt safe. Not the most luggage friendly to lug through tiny elevator and up and down small flights of stairs. But I'm sure they can help if needed. Staff were friendly.

Great for the location and pricePosted Sep 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Pros: Location, cleanliness (some stains on shower enclosure, but nothing too dramatic), tremendous friendliness of the majority of the staff. Availability of a 3 bed room, good AC in our room (although I understand that our room may have been an exception for this at this hotel) Cons: Small room size (typical throughout much of Europe), little room to put things in bathroom, tiny shower, 1 grumpy night staff (although he still did things, just wasn't pleasant about it).

Great Location - Helpful staffPosted Jul 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
You cannot beat the location - 10 minute walk from the central train station; 5 minute walk to see David, 10 minute walk to Duomo; 15 to Uffizi; 10 minute walk to an array of wonderful restaurants. The staff were very helpful and did so with a smile. Our room was quiet and clean. Clearly recommend this hotel for those not seeking 4 star quality rather all of the above.

Great locationPosted Jul 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Decent hotel. Reading the other reviews I don.t think we got a very good room. Great location though so you tend to overlook the fee faults. No reason not to stay here

Big, clean rooms and very nice staff.Posted Feb 1, 2012
Pros: We were pleasantly surprised with the big size of the room. The location was very convenient, too.
Cons: The breakfast served did not have too many options.
Location: Great location in a small city that invites the visitor to walk around.
Out of the four hotels we stayed at during our honey moon in Europe, the Gioia had the biggest rooms and the most friendly staff.
