“Beautiful hotel, well located”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel is beautifully situated at the Piazza Santa Maria Novella; about 5 min by foot from the train station; maybe 7 min to the Duomo, 10 min to Accademia and 20 min to the Uffizi...in other words, ideal!

Our room was fantastic; high end amenities, all top notch. Super clean and comfortable. Free internet excellent; breakfast beautiful on the 4th floor overlooking Piazza. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity. Staff very helpful.

Hotel is a bit expensive but of obvious quality. You can find cheaper accommodation in Florence, but you won't find many finer hotels. Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: A view of the Piazza is lovely --- the windows open so you can hear life going on --- could be a bit...

We loved this hotel! It is brand new and modern, which was a nice break from the older hotels we had stayed in in Italy. The location was so convenient to everything--yet somewhat quiet and removed from the touristy areas of Florence. We walked to the hotel in five minutes from the train station.

The service was excellent, the rooms beautiful, the breakfast room and food choices were fantastic. This was our favorite hotel of our nine-day trip to Italy. Highly recommend it and look forward to staying at Hotel L'Orologio in the future.

We loved this hotel! The location is great, central but quiet. The room was modern and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was lovely. I caution, however that if you have any mobilty problems, you may want to mention this at booking to inquire about alternatives. The tub/shower is very high, hard to get in and out of, no safety rails. The hotel had many tasteful, comfortable public spaces to plan our day. The breakfast was fabulous, high quality food and a very good selection. The Internet connection in our room was spotty, but the room was large enough that I could move around and find a signal. The only slight disappointment was that we didn't like the front desk restaurant recommendation. This was the perfect the perfect choice for us and we would love to return.

On a recent visit to Italy, my boyfriend and I arrived in Florence with no hotel room booked for the night. On a whim, we decided to wing it...and I'm so glad we did! After a long drive, we arrived in Firenze needing to use the bathroom facilities. Lucky for us, we ended up outside the Hotel L'Orologio. After a quick bathroom break, we checked the reviews on TA and made our reservation. Although there were no rooms available with a view, we were given a large room with a comfortable king-size bed, high ceilings, enormous bathroom and well appointed dressing area. The hotel gets the details so right. Everything feels well thought out and attended to. The breakfast that's included should not be missed. Served on the top floor, you will be treated to views that match the well seasoned eggs, fresh peaches and homemade granola. A return visit to Florence would include a stay at the L'Orologio.

Beautiful and well appointed hotel. The double Superior is super spacious even by US standards. Lots of closet space. Huge and modern bathroom all really nicely decorated. Great location near to Santa Maria Novella Termini. Helpful staff.
