The cheap price of this (hard to call it a) hotel in such a great location in Florence should have been a red flag, but we liked the look of the professional photos and went ahead and booked a room. We only saw the one room and it was nothing like the professional pictures we spotted here on TripAdvisor or...

The bathroom was a death trap, due to a constant leak from the toilet / bidet. We complained, but nothing done, not only that, but the shower flooded the floor. If that didn't kill you the electricity wall socket will, (see photo). Breakfast was minimal. A very very run down place.

We were looking for a cheap accommodation in Florence and this was great. We stayed there 4 nights. The place is far from cosy, staff were really weird, breakfast was poor, BUT the room was quite big and veeeeery comfortable. So just what we were looking for.

The hotel was advertised as a 3* hotel but only displayed 2* at the door. In my pinion, it's only worth 1* for its good location. There was a think line of dust above the tiles in the bathroom, a used tissue in the draw of the bedside cabinet and dried food in the wardrobe draws. There was also a...

The hotel is very close to the centre of town and a handy base for sightseeing. It's basic but it works - good size, comfy bed, nice warm shower (in a very bizarrely laid out wet-room bathroom, but hey, I'd rather warm water than pretty tiles) and, where we were at least, quiet. Breakfast not really very exciting - hot...

Traveled here with a girlfriend. Despite lack of AC we slept just fine with the fan. Bathroom has open concept shower, no big deal, just dry the floor with towel afterwards. No lift, no biggie, a good traveller can always carry their own case/pack. Breakfast was pretty bad - safe to eat the yogourt, and then have a second breakfast...

No lift, no air conditioning. Room: ceiling fan switch broken; toilet seat broken; TV had only one channel, remote not working. Huge mosquito problem. Noisy building. Location good: a little off beaten tourist track, but still quite central, and close to supermarket. Breakfast OK (coffee made per individual cup).

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Ariston. It is a quaint, comfortable hotel with a price that can't be beat. Even better, it is in close walking distance to many major attractions in the city of Florence! From the hotel, it is about a five minute walk to Santa Croce, about ten minutes to the River Arno, ten minutes...

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
