15 August 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed in the ensuite with our own bathroom and were very comfortable. Giovanna makes you feel very welcome. The place is very clean and even smelled good. It is in an area with many other hotels - so there are a lot of places to eat nearby. The location was also great compared to the attractions in Florence, such as the Duomo.

Disliked: The only thing we did not like about staying there was no safe in the room, and we were asked to leave our key in the hall when we left each day. Luckily, we had honorable neighbors and nothing was stolen.

Liked: The hotel was conveniently located near the main train station and was within walking distance to the city center. It was a five minute walk to the Duomo and the leather market. Rooms were small but clean.

Disliked: No wireless internet access. The hotel was located up four flights of stairs and there was no elevator. Shared bathroom.

Liked: I stayed there for three days with my gf in a double room with private bathroom. The place is very clean and the location is perfect, near the train station and 10 min walking to the duomo.The lady who manages it was really gentle even after we have paid, thing hard to find nowadays. We also left the bagages after the checkout for couple hours.I absolutely recommend it.

elizabeth savage

15 April 2009 elizabeth would recommend this property

Liked: I stayed at Locanda Giovanna which is situated on the 3rd floor for 3 nights over the Easter weekend.The woman who ran it was very friendly and on Easter morning there was Easter cake and coffee in a flask left on the hall table for anyone to help themselves to.The room was adequate with washbasin,overlooking Via Faenza,and bed was comfortable with linen sheets, towels soap provided on asking at no extra.I spent peacful nights between midnight and 6ish when the rubbish gets taken, but was little noise otherwise, as it is not on a busy throughfare.The down side i would say is that there was only one shower and toilet combined so queing in morning seemed to be the norm.A separate toilet would have helped reduce this problem.Finally I couldn't be sure whether Hostel Bookers was promoted or not as there was nothing in the room I had, but there may have been info if I had looked for it.
