Relais Il Campanile

Reviewed 4 April 2012

We weren't expecting much, but we were delightfully surprised by this hotel! The hosts were friendly, the room was surprisingly spacious, and the location was excellent! Just a block to the Duomo and convenient to the Mercato Centrale, but the street it's on is quiet. Thanks for a great stay in Florence!

Just to add a voice in favour of this excellent place. Hard to find the nameplate when you arrive, easy to lock your scarf in the street door as you close it on departure!! So much character, such friendly staff, such good rooms, ideal location. In Florence [Firenze = Fear - en -zay] you need no dining room, etc, you step out the door to everything.

Don't just rush from tourist site to tourist site, appreciate the general environment.... although for the people of Florence there is a great sense of the city ruined by vast tourist and foreign student numbers.

The Accademia is just up the street to the right, where you can see the original of Michelangelo's David and many other major works. The originals have so much more strength and live beauty than the motley copies.

The cathedral and baptistry are just to the left. If nothing else look at the art work on the doors of the baptistry.

Go past the cathedral (duomo = dwo mo) to the Piazza Signorile, which has fewer heads skewered in posts than in days of the great Florentine republic. Be conscious that when you go to this centre of the Renaissance that it was not just 'painterville' 1500, but the result of the big families of Florence gathering the world's books and knowledge over 200 years. We don't do that much these days. Also compare with your own local cultural environment the fact that in 1500 or so, when Machiavelli spent his evenings writing the most influential political treatise in 500 years, that the population of Florence was about 30,000. Imagine what we could do if we stopped chatting and gossiping and read and thought a bit more!

The Uffizi Gallery (the offices of the Florentine republic) contain a very valuable and somewhat orderly historical display of Italian art. Book ahead or queue early and/or long.

The market, short walk, is good especially for scarves and hats.

Remember that you will do a lot of walking and it may be wet (as well as cold in winter). Soft shoes on cobblestones = angry legs.

Room Tip: Not suitable for disabled, carry own bags upstairs.

This is a simple, clean, no fuss hotel, steps away from the Duomo. You can open the window and see the side of the Dome. Close to good food, and great places to visit, like the market, museums and piazzas. Staff is friendly and can recommed good & cheap places to eat around town. They allow you to leave your luggage on the last day so you can explore the city as long as possible. It is about a 10 minute walk from main train station.

Amazing little place and can't beat the location!!! Literally a few hundred yards away from the Dome. Rooms are small and cozy, bathrooms have exactely what you need in them for a trip to Firenze. You don't go cities like this to spend the day in your room, so if you're looking for a room with a 50" plasma TV and a minibar, then I suggest Las Vegas.
I'm not sure if they offer breakfast, but if they do, I suggest you keep your money, not because the food might be bad, but because there are lots of pastery place around and they are TO DIE FOR!!!!
The front desk girls are super-nice, and DO ask them to point you to local restaurants.

Reasonable rates and great location, walking distance (15min) from train station and very close to Duomo and Accademia(statue of David). As well you can easily walk to all attractions in Florence. Paolo (our host) helped us carry our luggage up the stairs and was very helpful in recommending affordable and very good restaurants and gelato shops. Rooms were comfortable with a small ensuite bathroom and a small refrigerator and in room safe (good to have). It was even nice to open the shutters and take in the street scene below (man playing typical Italian tunes on accordian and folks on their evening stroll.) Some rooms even have a view of the Duomo if you look to the left. It is good value with a superb location and the staff are very friendly and helpful. A great choice for a stay in Florence!
