Hotel San Giovanni, Florence, Italy
Perfect Stay in the middle of Florence
We had a wonderful stay. It was lovely to open the shutters and look out to the square and to be in the centre of Florence was amazing. Everything was nearby and easily walkable. The hotel was an older hotel and we shared a bathroom. That aside it was a wonderful stay. Management and staff were super friendly and helpful. We would recommend this stay for locality and price would be hard to beat.

Florence revisited
We were offered two rooms when we arrived and chose the corner room that had two windows opening out onto the Duomo! The room was spacious, the bed was great, a part of an ancient fresco even on the ceiling. Sure the bathroom, though private, was accessed from the corridor and was just a little dark and tight but all the negatives were outweighed by the view, the position, the very friendly and helpful staff and the value for money. We chose to leave the windows open to add some air movement to the room, additional to the fan provided...the square is a busy place until the early hours and after a few hours reprieve the too sweepers arrive... Shutting the windows, The double glazing Dealt with this. Hotel is also very close to Railway Station very easy walk. We felt we got to experience the heart of Florence from our hotel room... People watching at all hours cheap entertainment, especially the hawkers!

Nice hotel and the location is great- we could see the front of Il Duomo from our room. We felt that we could easily walk from the hotel to most of the major city attractions. Good place to stay if you're visiting Florence.

Great time in Toscana
We stayed at the Hotel San Giovanni and used it as a base to sight see around Tuscany It was the perfect choice and three flight of stairs and dodgy WIFI apart really couldnt be faulted it is situated a stones throw from the main sights of Florence and is always bustling with life, wth a great selection of Bars and Cafes on the doorstep (Barone just aroud the corner being a fave of ours!!!) the only fault i can find with the rooms was the fact that it is used as a stop off for one night or short stays and people can be very inconsidrate when enrteing and moving around within the annex the communal kitchen area is great but not for rattling pots and pans or for sitting around having a small party as the four bedrooms that open onto this area get the full blast of any noise also one or two poeple during the week thought it ok to use this facility but not wash up after themselves that apart the staff and facilties of the San Giovanni are excellent

Walk around the corner
Having to check-in around the corner then walk with your bags to another location was a little inconvenient. However, once we were at the unit, we were very happy with the location being so close to everything.
