    Fabulous

    The breakfast was better than in other places we stayed in Italy, lobby was comfortable (there are a lot of books, games, DVDs available there).

    Wi-Fi didn't work well enough in the room: we had to go to the lobby to get good speed.

    They deserve their reputation among travellers. The service is as outstanding as it has been said to be. Enough said.

    Would be handy if they could install small racks in the shower for shampoo and things.

    We came with another couple and we were all really pleased with Hotel Giglio. First of all it is a good 3 star standard in Italy this can vary. The whole place was extremely Clean and well decorated, the rooms were a good size and laid out well. Breakfast facilities were very good, but the best thing about the Hotel was it’s atmosphere, this is due to the owners and staff they are really warm and attentive to their customers. This is not forced, but natural, which gives a real family feel to the place. It is far the best place in Italy I have stayed in even when I have gone for 4 star Hotels, could not recommend it more. The location is good, short walk into the centre, they are some really good restaurants in the area, which the Hotel recommended to us, which provides real local food at reasonable prices. However, we aware that in the centre you will get basic food with a large bill like many cities, therefore check for service charges, before sitting down.

    None, we will reccommend the Hotel Giglio to all our friends.

    Very good

    Typical city hotel on the second floor of a residential building. Free parking available in the neighbourhood. In the room: wood parquet floor, 19th. sentury window panes, high cealing. Helpful owner. Family hotel.

    The lift is old style and small (1.5 sq. 240kg. capacity) a little bit awkward to deal with the luggage.

    Fabulous

    Staff were wonderful. Breakfast also very good. A little too far to walk to the train station and yet it did not have the business/noise of being nearer. Beds very comfortble. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Provided transportation to the train station on the morning of our departure, which was a pleasant surprise. Two computers in the lobby. Lobby also has books etc.

    Wish we had a tub instead of shower, but maybe other rooms do. It was a bit noisy but I think it is standard for older hotels/buildings. No restuarnts right next door, but it was a short walk which I didn't mind. To be closer to the main sites and restaurants would probably be a pricier hotel.

    The staff is among the most gracious and helpful of any hotel I have ever visited. This hotel is ideal for the budget-minded traveller. It is a 10-minute walk from the main center of town, and the staff is extremely helpful in helping to orient you to the city. They will also make any arrangements or reservations possible to help you find what you want. The hotel is on the second floor of a non-descript building, so you need to look past the somewhat dank entrance way. It is well worth staying here, and I will absolutely stay here again.

    The service of all staff was exceptional. Very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We felt very comfortable there as a result we extended our stay for an additional 3 nights. Definitely good value. Our stay included breakfast each morning which was very good. The Hotel is well situated within walking distance to the Duomo and other main sites. The room is well equipped and designed (we really liked the high ceilings) We were very happy with our stay and highly recommend to others. Should we return to Florence, we will certainly return to Hotel Giglio. They really go the extra mile for you!

    Very good

    Air-conditioner and hair-dryer is ready in a room. Hotel staffs are always ready for 24 hours at the reception desk, and they are very friendly and kind. Breakfast is good. A self-service laundry is near to the hotel.

    Hotel is a little far from the railway station; around 15 minutes walk. No electric kellte nor refrigerator are available in a room. Towels provided in the hotel have too much starch; they smell a little strange.

    Marcus and his wife are wonderful. They make you feel at home. Marcus helped us with our travel plans. They let us use their computer, umbrellas and travel books. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

    We stayed in July and the room had some mosquitos. The room had an unusual air conditioner. It has a glass jar at the end of a tube that condensation drips into this jar. I could hear the drips from the water at night. I never saw this type of air condition before. It did keep the room cool. In the summer you need an air conditioned room too.
