We appreciated this hotel so tuscan and nice: we could describe it as a 3 "C" hotel, i.e. Cheap, Comfortable and Central. We had a very quiet room overlooking the courtyard and could open the windows all the time. The hotel is in walking distance to the city center and all the main museums, close to everything. Service was ok,...

We stayed at Hotel Bijou for five nights in late Oct 2013. Very nice, worth every euro! Our spacious room was equipped with a large balcony too. Staff service was perfect. Breakfast was excellent, the buffet table was full of cakes, biscuits, croissants, juices and so on. Also, you can have your breakfast on the rooftop: you can enjoy the...

What a cozy hotel! The rooms are spacious and large, and the bathrooms are very clean. The location is perfect, in downtown at a short distance from the main train station. Also, the room price was cheap: a very good deal for us. But most of all it's about the roof terrace: from the rooftop you can enjoy an amazing...

We spent 4 nights very happily at the Hotel Bijou. The room was very large, cozy and had a lovely balcony overlooking a courtyard. We also liked the location -- close enough to everything (train station, stores, museums, monuments). The restaurants and trattorias in the area are very good. The rooftop terrace is a must. The building is ancient, and...

First, a real clarification is necessary against your slanderous and defamatory comments: you have never arrived at the Hotel Bijou, we have never seen your faces. You have invented this false, absurd and ridiculous story by defaming us on this website only not to pay the penalty; in fact, you have booked through Venere / Expedia, and you know very...

The Hotel Bijou is a great choice for people arriving by train (it's around the corner from the main station) or seeking a quiet spot away from the city's crowds. We had a triple room -- clean, quiet, well-maintained -- which became our sanctuary after a long day of sightseeing and I don't think we walked into the hotel once...

We very much enjoyed our shirt stay at this hotel. Situated in a beautiful old building. It is well located, in a nice quiet situation. The rooms are clean and the staff very friendly an welcoming. I would definately recommend this hotel, and should we return to Florence we would stay again.

Nice hotel in an excellent location in Florence. Wonderful staff who are very polite, helpful and warm. Our room was very spacious, with a balcony overlooking a little courtyard (no noise in downtown! Absolutely fantastic!), so we could sleep very well. Breakfast is very good and served in a marvellous room.

No one has treated you like trash: rather, you wrote a pile of lies and insults against our Hotel, without any reason. First of all, before your arrival and after your departure there were no foot prints all over the walls of that room, so the question is: where did you take that picture? Definitely not in our hotel.

I were on my first visit to Florence and appreciated my four-night stay at the Hotel Bijou. The reception was very welcoming and polite.
