This is a beautiful hotel in an ideal location. Couldn't have been better positioned. The room was very pleasant, and the shower was superb. My only disappointment was with the bed, which was very hard, but that wouldn't prevent me from coming back. We stayed in the Botticelli room, which had a lovely view over the Old Market.

The arrangements for breakfast are also really good. Plenty of variety, very casual and relaxed, and available all day!

Room Tip: Botticelli room, lovely views, good bathroom, but a very firm bed.

We came in May 2011 and returned this month. Very thing as last time was 100%, will return on our next visit to Florence. The location of the premises are very central and so within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: We had the room next to the breakfast room and therefore, very handy.

We truly found a pot of gold within the streets of Florence! I loved the feeling of being in an apartment with the comfort of a B&B.

I must admit - as we walked up the dimly lit stairwell, we were not sure what to expect. Yet, when we opened the door into the sitting area, we were so pleasantly surprised. We were even more pleased with how our room looked. You can tell the owners put a lot of time and effort into making it a beautiful living space.

We were first greeted by Aiko to check in and she was so kind and accommodating. She gave us a detailed map with tips about where to go and she answered all our questions. Later in the week she even made calls for us to re-schedule our train. Talk about good service!

Francesca also made some calls for us during the week to help us book things. Thank you!!

The common kitchen was adorably decorated and had all the utensils we needed. My only complaint is that there were far too many sweet things at breakfast - cookies, croissants, cake. It was a sugar overload. I'd recommend more fruits, nuts, and savoury crackers.

Our room was a great size - bigger than I expected. And, it was very clean. It was nice to also have complimentary water in our fridge. I know we don't come to Florence to watch TV, but I would have liked to have one or two English channels, like our hotel in Milan did.

Although there is no security guard, I felt very safe, as there is a key to get into the building, another to enter the B&B, and a third for the room. Noise was not a problem, as the window shutters blocked the noise from the street.

Overall, if you stay at Relais Cavalcanti, you'll be in a fabulous location, in beautiful surroundings, and have friendly, helpful staff.

Very nice room. Unfortunately we were only there for a short time. It is centrally located - we walked to some great sights, restaurants. Interior of room beautifully decorated and very clean. Would definitely stay there again.

This guest house is exactly as described on Tripadvisor and elsewhere. It is a centrally based, carefully furnished and decorated apartment which gives you a real sense of being in the heart of Florence. The welcome is charming and warm and gives you useful info about restaurants, sights and shops. Breakfast is a do it yourself affair, fine but we did miss fresh bread and pastries, you'd need to buy these yourself. We really enjoyed being able to open the window and 'hear' Florence at work and play. The building is next to a covered market and opposite the HQ of Calcio Fiorentino, florentine football and on Sunday mornings you can watch the teams gather before playing. All very evocative. Go!
