this hotel was everything that the web site promised. Staff went out of their way to take care of me and my sister for the whole time we were there, the staff also speaks excellent English. We were most impressed with the beautiful views from the roof top terrace tho we were a bit disappointed to learn we could order food on the terrace, the drinks were a little high but considering the views and comfortable seating we did not mind. We would definitely go back to this hotel and recommend it highly.

The hotel is a very pleasant place to stay, very efficient & friendly staff, clean, room spacious, but small cupboard (I travel with a lot of clothes!) it’s within walking distance to most important sights & surrounded by many restaurants & cafes. The food @ the restaurant adjacent to the hotel is very good for a quick lunch. I intend to stay in the same hotel in the future God Willing.

A great hotel right in the heart of Florence. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel itself was modern, clean and welcoming. The breakfast was great and the staff were very helpful. Overall a wonderful base with which to explore Florence. Only minutes to the Uffizi was also a huge bonus!

The hotel is in great location. the only postive thing going for it. The staff were very unhelpful. Rooms very noisy from other guests, it felt they were in the same room as us. Couldn't turn the airconditioning off. We had leak from the room above us. The room was so smaall. We would never stay there again. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone of our friends!!!!

Quite disappointed when entering my room..it had NOTHING TO DO with the pictures shown in the hotel´s web. They SHOULD INFORM they only have 30 refurbished rooms and that the rest are quite OLD and quite NOISY. The situation is very good and breakfast & staff quite nice. But I felt I was somewhere else from the Cavour, at least from what I expected after visiting their website!

This was a very special trip. The location of this hotel is perfect. Walking distance to everything you want to see... We even bought 5 leather jackets from a shop right around the corner. The front desk clerks were very helfpul, the people in the town were wonderful. if you get hungry, the place right next door (Yellow something) was great. I will be back and I will stay at this hotel again. We had a bottle of wine on the roof top terrace one evening with the greatest view of the city. If you stay anywhere else, it is your own fault.

Hotel Cavour is really just not great - and I really wanted it to be! While close to the major "attractions" it was an area that lacked charm. Our room had a really strange mural on the wall and it was VERY loud outside. We had to leave the windows open since it was unseasonably warm and the air conditioning didn't work. The staff was well-informed, although arrogant. I just would never recommend this hotel to a friend - I am sure that there are others that are far more warm and welcoming and in more appealing locations. We did eat at two fantastic restaurants - La Giostra (seriously - just go!) and Cantinetta Antinori, a high end wine bar and restaurant with the best asparagus (among other things) that I have ever tasted!

We arrived on 10/06 to a heatwave in FLorence and we were told that the air conditioning in the hotel had been turned off. We would never book a hotel which did not have air conditioning but since we were only staying overnight w4e did not move. We opened the large window which faced an alley way and were up all night. THe room was very hot and it was extraordinarily loud. I would never stay at this hotel again.

We found the other comments on the site very helpful in making our decision about choosing this place. We visited Dec of 06 and found our stay to be very enjoyable. Since it was winter we had little need to keep our windows open so it was quiet. We could see how if the windows had to be open it could be noisy--but that's the price to pay for the location. We found the hotel to be very clean, the employees to be helpful and the location could not have been any better. We will stay there again on our next visit.

Especially welcomed by Salvatore at the front desk and Ali at the door (and, it seemed, he was everywhere at once).We were given one of the best rooms in the hotel (#325) even with the special Venere rate. Don't miss the roof garden with spectacular views of Firenze. We have stayed all over Italy on our moderate budgets, but have never experienced such an extraordinary place, with such friendly people. And, in the best location in Firenze between the Duomo and Piazza della Signore. Go!!!

The check-in staff and manager on duty were quite efficient and kind / accommodating. The hotel location and its facilities are good, and we had value for our money as regards the accommodations we got. Buffet breakfast was quite good. The triple/quadruple bedroom is spacious, but the double bedroom is average in size. The shower cubicle in the doubleroom we had is very small, and, with its fixed plastic enclosure, it was difficult for an adult (even of an average build)to move around / wash himself in.
