“Fabulous place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

We found this hotel by accident! We were staying somewhere else, and it was horrible! My husband got up in the morning to try and call the online vacation service we had used to help us into another hotel, and they were most unhelpful! So he started wandering around Florence. He almost missed it, but once in, the family that owns the hotel were so caring, and helpful and understanding of our situation. They had a wonderful room available, and we walked the block from our old place to the new. The hotel is clean, bright, inviting. The breakfast spread every morning was delicious. Othe owners are very friendly and helpful. They gave gave us great tips to local restaurants to try, and wonderful directions for us every time. I would most definitely stay there again!

Absolutely the best place to stay in Florence! The hotel is located near the center of town such that everything is a close walk, seemed like everything was a 5-10 minute walk for travel time - including the Duomo which was about a half block away. The train station is about a 10 minute walk, however we drove and used a near-by garage that delivered the car to the hotel when we were ready to leave. The hotel was able to accommodate the four of us in one room. The beds are comfortable, and the bathroom is good size with a shower. A light breakfast is included each morning.

For us, it was the warm welcoming we received from the family that owns and operates the hotel. They all made us feel like they had invited us into their home and wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves in Florence. The son and daughter - Paolo and Sonia - mostly run the hotel, but sometimes mamma (Ines) is there as well. All are really great people.

Sonia and Paolo both recommended some top notch restaurants for dinner, and made us reservations. In Italy it is always a good idea to make reservations for dinner, and always ask the concierge about a restaurant before going so that you don't end up in a tourist trap. Sonia and Paolo recommended the Natalino and Ristorante Paoli - both were outstanding!

Florence is a beautiful city to visit and staying at the Benivieni made the trip even more enjoyable. We plan to go back and we will stay at this hotel again, and will recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

Lovely hotel in a perfect location. It is easy to find, close to everything you want to see, and the staff was very helpful. Breakfasts were delicious and the dining room was very relaxing. The single room was quite tiny, but the bed was comfortable for a single. It was perfect for three nights! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed in Benivieni Hotel for three nights. It is a small family owned hotel, located on a very quiet small street just a block away from the Duomo. So the location is perfect and most major tourist attractions in Florence are a short walking distance away. We had a triple room on the second floor facing inside. The room and the beds are small but big and comfortable enough for us. If you are over 200 and taller than 6, they might be a bit small. The buffet breakfast is continental (cold food) and is not open until 7:30AM. I booked the air-hotel-multi-city Italy trip as a package through Expedia so I am not sure if I got a good deal or not but I enjoyed my stay there. Staff are very friendly and easy going. They called a cab for us to get to the airport the day when we leave.

My friend and I stayed at the Hotel Benivieni in September 2011 from the minute we stepped into the lobby we were amazed at how beautiful the decor was. The pictures online do not do justice. The hotel management and staff were so helpful and nice, we felt like they were family. The location was superb next to the Duomo and close to all the main attractions in Florence. I hope that when I return to Florence I will be lucky enough to be able to stay at the Benivieni.

Room Tip: I believe that all the rooms are clean and beautiful.
