Reviewed 14 December 2011

We stayed at the Caravaggio during our stay in Florence (three nights)...and were duely impressed. As soon as we pulled up to the entrance and walked in we were greeted by the front desk attendant who was able to provide answers to the numerous questions we bombarded him with; Where is a good restaurant? Is an ATM nearby? Do you have the number for a tourguide for Florence? Taxi service info etc... We found our room to be a pleasant surprise as well, located on the third floor (elevator access is provided) it was spotless. The queen sized bed was comfortable with numerous pillows and a thick comfortor to keep you warm during the late autumn nights of Tuscany. The bathroom was large enough to accomodate my 6' frame and the shower was immaculate. There was a small fridge in the room to allow for storing drinks or small sundry groceries. The courtyard was extremely nice and was a great place to sit with company and talk about the days activities over a nice drink. The Caravaggio also has a breakfast area and was stocked with a variety of deli meats, cheeses, juices, pastries and espresso machines. The location is fantastic as it's within walking distance from the train station and is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Galleria Dell'Accademia and the Bronze Boar in the Mercato Nuovo. There is also a park in front of the Caravaggio that is a relaxing place to sit and just take in the evening atmosphere that is Firenze. If you need to access the web to print out reservations, there is a business room with desktops and printers available next to the front desk. Overall this was an enjoyable stay for under 90 Euro a night and I can't wait to return.

I stayed here for 3 nights in November as part of my honeymoon. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and upgraded our room when they heard we were on our honeymoon. The hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from the train station and about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo. Because the streets in Florence don't seem to make much sense it took us a few times trying to find our way back to the hotel from the city center but by the third day we got it. Our room had an excellent view of the Duomo and the hotel had a nice courtyard. The room was big for European standards although our bed was much shorter than the other beds we had in Italy. I am 6'2 and my feet probably hung off the bed by a good foot.

Piazza Indipendenza is tranquil park approximately af ten minute
walk from the railroad station, but far enough away to avoid
the congestion and noise.
The staff is helpful, the breakfasts hearty, the rooms spacious,
and the price (Euro 92/night) a good value. Overall, the hotel
is a solid three star, maybe three and a half star quality.
The Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio are within 15-20 minutes
walk depending on how much sightseeing one does en route.
Side trips within one hour of Florence are to Pisa, Lucca, Siena, and
San Gimignano, and remember the railroad station is a short walk.

My wife and I stayed here during the Florence portion of our honeymoon.

PROS:
-Very friendly staff.
-An easy walk to Florence’s points of interest.
-An easy ten minute walk to the train station.
-This room had tissues!
-Soft bed.
-Cold air conditioning that doesn’t require the room key to stay on.
-This hotel had two desk top computers setup and cheap internet usage rates.

CONS:
-The room’s floor was this weird textured rectangular tiles. It was like something you’d have on your outdoor patio.
-You have to turn in your key to the front desk every time you leave the hotel.
-Our room (#106) overlooked the Piazza, but it was noisy and bright, even in the middle of the night.
-The piazza across the street housed a nice park. Unfortunately, this park would fill up with all of these Indians at night, and they would be out there (entire families) playing, singing, and carrying on until the wee hours of the morning. No joke, you’d open your curtains at 3am, and Indian kids are playing tag in the park like it was noon time.
-The bathroom always had a strange sewer odor.
-The water pressure was very weak.
-The hotel is a bit dated.
-The breakfast was okay, but nowhere near as good at the hotels we stayed at in Rome & Venice.
-The bathroom had weird towels that were cloth, which didn’t absorb water.
-The bathroom was long, narrow, and became cramped very easily.
-We found all many foreign strands of human hair in our bed linens.

If you have to stay here, it isn’t terrible, but I imagine that one could find better accommodations, elsewhere. If we ever do return, we will look for a hotel on the other side of the Arno River.

Room Tip: Do not get a room that overlooks the Piazza.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was fantastic. All the staff were great, especially the staff at breakfast. The ladies made sure that the food I could eat was readily available, as I have a special diet. The room was very nice and clean, couldn't have asked for more. The location was great, within walking distance to wherever we wanted to go. Only caught a taxi to and from the staion as we had heavy luggage, otherwise we would have walked. We did an organised tour of San Gimignano, Siena and Chianti, which was fantastic. I would highly recommed this hotel, as the room was nice, the staff all friendly and in a great location for shops and restaurants and also for all the attractions in Florence.
