Extremely friendly family owned hotel.Posted Sep 13, 2017
Pros: Family owened and operated and they make you feel like family. Close to train station and major sites. My tours were confirmed There is also a bar.
Cons: I found it perfect The hotel is on the second floor and in Italy that means lots of stairs. .
Location: Near train station,sites, and money exchange. .The Pallazo Riccardi, Medici Chapels and , Academia were minutes away . The owners provided a map.
Marco and his wife did everything possible to make me feel at home. Marco confirmed all my tours and gave me directions to the sites I wanted to see. The breafast was wonderful and consisted of meats, cheeses, breads,pastries, jucises,cereals,eggs and coffee.The owners brought me coffee. They also provided a PT where I could exchange money, and suggestions for where to dine. My room was very comfortable with a courtyard which I wanted and plenty of AC and wi-fi and TV. The bed, room and bath was very clean and the bed was comfortable. In the morn I was greeted with a knock on my door for the requested wake-up call. Breaffast was from 7am till 9:30 am and on the days I missed it they gave me coffee and pastry . The day of departure Marco carried my luggage to the taxi. The Hotel is 20 minutes away from the major and train station. The evening staff was most accomadating and friendly. On my next visit I plan on staying there.

Nice hotel close to the centrePosted Aug 17, 2017
We stayed at the hotel from august 10-16 The staff was super friendly and flexible, the room was spatious and clean, air conditioner. It doesn't have a fridge , however the owner, Marco offered to use the fridge in the lobby. The buffet hours were flexible if you need to leave very early in the morning. It doesn't have a variety of selection ( no vegetables) but it was ok. In overall we were pleased with the hotel.

Close to sightsPosted Jul 18, 2017
Stairways and corridors had weird smell. Room smelled fine, was clean, and comfortable with a/c. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was basic continental.

Great staff and nice roomPosted Jul 8, 2017
Happy with the location and even happier with the great owners and their nice and helpful attitude
Very friendly owner-managementPosted Jun 5, 2017 on Hotels
We enjoyed particularly the friendly reception at Hotel Giglio. The hotel is located within 30 minutes walking distance of most of old Florence and there are regular buses if you are not up for the walk.
Great staff!Posted Mar 12, 2017 on Hotels
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. There were four of us and we had 2 rooms and 2 baths in a separate suite area. We had lost our luggage and the staff was excellent in helping us with telephone numbers for the airport and assistance. The breakfast was delightful and they provided us with wine glasses for our room. It was our first stop in Italy and we didn't realize how much we appreciated having a 24 hour front desk until we went to other locations that did not have that service.

Great hotel for family of 4 with a carPosted Oct 3, 2016 on Hotels
Marco was there to greet us at 11pm when we arrived. Made us feel immediately at home. And provided us with a wealth of information before touring around the next day. Breakfast was good. Great capicino. Would definitely recommend.
