The staff members were all so wonderful from the bellboy, the food staff and everyone else. The reception staff could not have been nicer and looked after all our needs. In my opinion they make your hotel stand out from others, but not everything was perfect. The hotel driver who took us smoked in the car was rude.

Response from Grand Hotel Cavour Fi, General Manager at Grand Hotel Cavour
Responded 4 weeks ago
Dear Guest, I would like to thank you for your comments, and your wonderful words about the Hotel Staff and service. Anyway, I have to say that I am not really sure you are talking about the Grand Hotel Cavour, firstly because I cannot find your name between the list of the Guests who stayed, secondly cause we are closed at present and since November 12th 2020, and it is strange that you are posting a review after at least more than four months. Lastly, if you really stayed at the Cavour, I presume the driver was organized by a tour operator or third part. We collaborate with just two drivers and I assure that they are both non-smokers. That said, thank you once more, but in case you will realize that we are not the right Hotel, I kindly ask you to cancel the review. Kind regards. Carlo Soldani Rooms Division Manager

I had made a reservation at the Grand Hotel Cavour as part of my much-anticipated honeymoon to Italy planned for March 2020. As my honeymoon quickly approached so did the news on COVID-19’s rapid rise in Italy. During the first week of March, CDC rose its travel advisory level for Italy to warning level 3: Avoid all non-essential travel. Brokenheartedly, I started calling all merchants I had booked reservations with to see what options I had. Ultimately, I wanted to receive credits to re-book for a later date once COVID-19 died down. All other merchants allowed me a refund, credit or re-book for a later date but not the Grand Hotel Cavour. On March 9, 2020, Italy announced its nationwide lockdown; just 2 days after I cancelled my reservation. Now that the whole country was on lockdown, I once again tried to compromise with the hotel. I called multiple times and spoke to different representatives and managers with no luck on flexibility. I was also told that the situation in Italy was perfectly safe. I received a response from the hotel stating “the situation in Florence area is absolutely claim” furthermore, “it cannot be canceled or amended”. I also called Agoda for a resolution and was told they would not issue a refund because it was the hotel’s decision and out of their control. Long story short... We lost over $900 because Grand Hotel Cavour was unwilling to refund or offer us a credit for a later date. All other Italy hotels, airfare and tour companies that we had booked were kind enough to offer us some resolution given the worldwide pandemic and that Italy was on lockdown. VERY DISAPPOINTING AND UNRESONABLE

Dear Sir, I would like to thank you for your message. I should inform that, as per the Italian decree, we are keeping all payments made for not-refundable reservation. I have no idea why Agoda told you that the Cavour declined the possibily of the credit. It is also difficult to believe that you contacted us directly, because from March 18th 2020 we informed every Client about the issue of vouchers. I kindly ask you to contact me directly at the e-mail address rdm@hotelcavour.com and I will be delighted to check your situation. I inform you that I was in the position to ask Tripadvisor to cancel your review, cause you didn't stay at the Hotel, but, having not the possibility to recognize your reservation from your nickname, I do really prefer to be at your disposal, if you like. This is, on my opinion, the way to demostrate our good faith. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards. Carlo Soldani RDM

This lovely hotel is ideally located to see all the sights of Florence. The rooftop bar gives you some wonderful views of this historic city. Our room was spacious and airy, and the bathroom was lovely. Toiletries were very nice also. Breakfast was your typical European selection, but very good. The staff were friendly and professional. There are however lots and lots of beautiful hotels to choose from in Florence, but we found this hotel to be prefect for us.

We chose the Grand Hotel Cavour because of its perfect position and that turned out to be a good choice as it was the perfect base to walk around Florence. The disadvantage of the location is that it is in a restricted area for cars. If you arrive by car there is very limited temporary space outside to unload. Your car must then be taken to a parking garage (cost 75 Euro for 3 days) and cannot be left anywhere on the street. Because you have entered the control zone the garage have to inform the parking authorities or you can be fined. Best avoid arriving by car if you can! Reception at the hotel and all subsequent interactions with the staff were excellent. They are friendly, well-informed and very keen to help. The room was very good on a corner facing the streets in front of and at the side of the hotel. On the plus side the room was bright and it was great to see out onto the local area rather than the internal part of the hotel. On the negative side it was quite noisy as the there was no double glazing. At night it was possible to close shutters and the heavy drapes but that is not ideal if you like sleeping with an open window. On balance we enjoyed the room (212). The hotel offered a 'free mini-bar' if booking made directly. We did but the fridge was empty. On being reminded the hotel sent up stock but only water and soft drinks! The hotel breakfast was fairly typical for a hotel of this standard and served in accordance with Covid restrictions.
