    Superb

    The location was excellent.

    It was impossible to find. Since it was in the city center it was loud. All the restaurants around were discarding bottles into trash cans all hours of the of the night. The alley to get to it was also kinda gross. We were travelling with 2 toddlers and there were enough stairs and narrow halls to make me not want to stay there again. Nice enough place, just not for us.

    Location was outstanding. Hotel is in a 14th century building with amazing views.

    We were in the annex which has about 20 stairs on a narrow case you have to climb before getting to a lift. Very hard to do with big suitcases. Staff weren't very helpful - only 1 member helped us with tours, the others said we had to do it ourselves. Breakfast was meager at best; yogurts, cheese etc were warm, not readily replenished, pastries were reused each day even in the hot weather. Your really paying for the location not the services.

    right in the centre of the city; very handy for everything; but dificult to get to even by taxi (which is essential)

    The location is fantastic and this is the reason to come here. You are right on the plaza and close to just about everything. Staff were helpful.

    We were in the annex section of the hotel. The room was very smelly: almost like a cellar even though on the second floor. Also very noisy: lots of crashing bottles being loaded just below the window. Other issue was it is very difficult to drive to. The driving directions take you to some tiny side street miles away. Best just to drive to garage on the opposite side bridge (costs around 24 euros per 24hrs). Rooms in the main hotel looked a little better and didn't seem to smell.

    Fabulous

    Great location around the corner from the Uffizi Gallery in the Piazza Della Signoria. Basic breakfast including bread, cold meats and breakfast cake. There was a bowl of fruit on most of the days I was there, and one choice of cereal. They prepared a fresh coffee for you though which was great. Close to the train station and shopping. Definitely go to the San Lorenzo markets before you go to the shops as there is a good range and reasonable prices there. You can walk to a lot of places from the hotel, easy to get around. Take the number 12 bus to Michelangelo Piazza there is a nice view from there. The Pisa tour was pretty good too if you have time. Very hot in May when I went. I would recommend the hotel, but only the main hotel part, and not in the lower floors.

    There are two sections to the hotel, the main hotel building and another building down an alley located nearby. I stayed in the other building and being alone I felt uncomfortable in the alley at night. The room looked out onto another alley with garbage bins and was quite noisy, however with earplugs was ok. The Wifi is not available anywhere except in the reception area so I had to walk down from the other building to the main building and go to reception, where there are a few chairs to sit. CNN is the only English language channel so you will get sick of watching that very soon. Watch out for people on mopeds stealing women's bags off their shoulders in the street, happened right in front of me, keep your handbag on your opposite shoulder from the street. The Uffizi Gallery doesn't allow photography which was very disappointing. Everyone seems to smoke there especially at restaurants, it's foul.

    Superb

    Relais Uffizi is perfectly located within walking distance of many of the major sites and within a short taxi ride of the train station (SMN) and the car rental agencies. It is clean and comfortable and has a friendly and helpful staff. We would be happy to stay there again.

    Very good

    The location was great. We had a room on the top floor which was very spacious and had beautiful wooden beams on the ceiling. Also, the bathroom was huge!

    In the bathroom, there was no shower curtain although there was a hand- held showerhead attached to the tub. Also, the window over the tub had no curtains. We had to drape a towel over the window as there were buildings directly across from us.

    Exceptional

    The lounge fronts on the Piazza della Signoria on the third floor. We were able to watch all of the activity on the piazza and hear an opera from the windows. The rooms were on the side so it was quiet and away from the throngs of tourists. It is right nextdoor to the Ufffizi, a 5- minute walk to Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, etc. Good brekfast; wonderfull service. Would definitely return.

    There was not anything that we did not like about the relais.

    Location, large room, view from breakfast/library room.

    Noisy, restaurant next to hotel, so lots of people coming out seemed to be groups of people and talking lots under our window... Also our room was on the stairs so you could hear peoples footsteps on the concrete stairs walking up and also people coming in and out of the main door. Would be better on floor 2 and those rooms were away from the stairs, we were on the first floor..

    If you are looking for a hotel in Firenze that is central and full of character this is the one. The staff were lovely and could not have been more helpful. The only thing they could not supply was an iron. You step out and you are in Piazza Signoria. What a gem. Mille grazie.

    The location was perfect, staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel was very clean and it was extremely good value for the cost. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone travelling to Florence.

    The bed was a bit hard. as were the pillows.

    Very well located - Next door to Signorina piazza. Valet parking facility with a partner very helpful.

    Very ascetic decoration. A little more fantasy would have been appreciated ...

    Fabulous

    Great location in the heart of Florence (Plazza de la Signoria)-a few steps only from Ponte Vecchio. Nice breakfast for 3stars hotel. Friendly staff. Clean and cute room with enough space. I recommend it!

    The reception is at the 2nd floor but you find always the elevator. They have to renew the bath towels.
