Extremely warm and friendly staff. Fabulous location. Quiet, simple and comfortable. You enter off a quiet street into dark hall and up to the 2nd floor - and while it was simpler than I expected from the photos, I could not have been more pleased. The rooms are clean and spacious, very quiet, and the beds extremely comfortable. The staff could not have been more warm, friendly and helpful. I stayed there 1 weekend, then traveled and returned back - it was fabulous coming back to a place where I felt at home and they knew me. I would highly recommend it!!

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel for three nights and were very satisfied with the accomodations. The price was reasonable for the accomadations. The hotel staff was very helpful. There was a party on the floor above the hotel us one night that kept us awake one night, but the hotel management warned us of the incident, but did little to quiet the party that lasted until 2 am.

The staff spoke English well & was extremely helpful. The rooms were uncommonly large for an old European city & while not luxurious were very nicely done. They supplied us with an excellent city map. I can't imagine a better place to stay at this price in the heart of the oldest part of the city. 2 minutes walk, maybe less to the Uffizi. When I read the complaint about the noise from the church bells I had to book it! The bells made our stay that much more charming!!! Its on the 3rd floor with a lift. Pedestrian mostly street--our taxi driver had trouble finding it!

Difficultés à trouver l'endroit même avec l'aide de l'information touristique. Il serait aussi important de préciser la difficulté de trouver du stationnement à proximité.

We were very disappointed with the room, security and the location. On the second day the towels were not changed and the bed not made up.

In a Medieval Palace ( XII century) recently renovated??? It is a old building, with a lot of hotels, and the entrance (with nothing) is very, very dark even at day. The walls are like paper: you can hear all the sounds produced in every place on the floor (and on the upper floor too!). Ah! They are very dirty, with mosquitos and blood to decorate! The room that we stayed was small and the bathroom was worst (and whole dark green...). The window of the bedroom (including the curtain), or the small one of the bathroom, can not be opened because all neighbors (from other hotels) can see you. As the ventilator did not work, it was very difficult to circulate the air. The good points are the staff, the localization (but the map of the site is terrible...) and the breakfast (that is regular...)

The entrance of the building was very dark and unwelcoming. Also, we could not find a sign directing us to the floor of the hotel. The room was spacious and clean enough and the hotel management was very friendly and helpful. Warning - the walls are very thin, so expect to hear your neighbor's conversations.

Very noise, the staff would reply to your complains saying "this is only people speaking"," This is only people laughing". The elevator motor seemed to be inside the room, and the neighbors (in the same building, sharing with us a ventilation internal well) would listen to loud rock'roll music until 2 AM and after that was time for drums. The worse was the attitude of the staff with "nobody but you complained of any noise" making me feel like it was "sick" to be willing to sleep. I could not sleep a single night.

Excellent hotel in the points:- - Location in the centre of Firenze, enjoy both sightseeing, shopping and restaurants by some step. - Staffs are very friendly. Nice talk with good interest for guest's mother country etc. - Room is big enough even four people. Points to be improved:- - Breakfast is miserable. - Room facing street is loud. - Shower has no booth or curtains and no dam on floor, which makes whole bathroom like lake.

There were dead bugs on the walls (needs a paint job) but the help at the front desk made up for a lot. Very friendly and warm. Vivoli's and Perche no is so close, the location is wonderful.

This hotel offers pensione-type accommodations that are bright and clean, right in the centre of Florence. You should expect lots of noise at all times during the day and night - this is normal for Florence. Overall, it is a very nice place and the staff is friendly and welcoming. I would definitely go back to Ferdinando!

Very good value,,,good location, walkable from the train station,,,short taxi ride. Best facet of the stay was the frendliness of the staff,,,always on hand, heerful and helpful. Worst facet was the noise of people callng late from the station and coming in later but this was not the fault of the staff as such. The 'openness' of the reception/rooms area does lend itself to the noise problem being possible.

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel and I returned because the people who run the hotel are wonderful and friendly, the location is excellent and the rates are super. I have recommended the hotel to others and will continue to do so. They are very, very nice.

The hotel is perfectly located, within walking distance of all the major sights in Florence. The rooms are spacious, with basic facilities. Our room had a charming view over the rooftops and balconies of downtown Florence. Breakfast was OK, containing tea/coffee and croissants with cream cheese and jam. The only downside was that there were no cleaning done and that the hotel elevator often was stuck. Besides this we had a good stay at Ferdinando II dei Medici. P.S. If you arrive by car it is pure hell finding parking space so dump the car as soon as possible!
