great place - hotel Casci
We just spent 3 great days at the Hotel Casci. LOVED IT! Great location, reasonable price, yummy breakfast, comfortable bed, and extremely helpful staff. They made our museum reservations for us, recommended restaurants, and were very friendly. I highly recommend this place. (ask for the fluffy towels!)
Top Location in Florence
280,000 lira for a double.
Public parking is nearby at 20,000/night
Valet parking (after our harrowing drive in we jumped at this as if we were native Los Angelenos) 40,000/night
Laundry service, 17,000 lira and up (The desk gives you a bag which you leave at the desk by 9:30am. It is on your bed, warm and folded by 6PM. Pay in cash) Sorry about all the old prices in lira -- but updated rates are found on their website. About two blocks from the Duomo.
Valet Parking (you try driving into Florence someday!)
Laundry service (if you pack light, this is really a luxury)
Very personal service - knowing it was our 25th, there was a bottle of sparkling wine in an icebucket with two glasses upon our arrival!
My family and I just spent an outstanding three days at Hotel Casci. The location was excellent, breakfast was good and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The front desk staff went out of their way to do everything they could to help my family have an enjoyable trip. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this amazing hotel again.
Ciao and thank you for your hospitality !
I just wanted to say how much we appreciated the Lombardi's kindness to me and my family when we stayed at their hotel in April. Their hospitality, helpfulness and graciousness helped us adjust to our new environment. I am still impressed with the languages they all speak so fluently! I will recommend Hotel Casci to anyone I know who would like a great place to stay in Florence.
Great location, great service!
We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Hotel Casci in Florence. We were traveling with our 2 children & our room was very large and had 4 separate beds with a lovely bathroom. This hotel is basic(not plush) but very clean & the staff is extremely helpful. Breakfast was adequate. The location is wonderful; 5 min walk to the Duomo and the Accademia (David). I would certainly stay here again.
Great Service and Location
Our family of four spent three wonderful days in Florence at the Hotel Casci. We rented a family suite (room 28), which has two twin beds and a king size bed. The bathroom is a bit small but adequate. The furnishings are simple and the room is far from elegant, but the room was in line with what we expected from a two-star hotel. The service we received, however, greatly exceeded two-star quality. The Lombadi family answered all of our questions and anticipated our travel, dining, and sightseeing needs. They served a good breakfast, with croissants, toast, fruit, cereal, juices, and coffee. We all availed ourselves of the free internet access in the lobby. The hotel's location is great, being several blocks from the Duomo, San Marco, and San Lorenzo, and within walking distance of the train station. The third-floor location of the hotel is a little inconvenient, as a small elevator serves the hotel and the stairs are difficult with luggage.
Overall, this is a very solid, economical choice for a Florence accomodation.
Long history at Casci, great location and staff
My older brother and younger brother lived at (then "Pensione") Casci for the 1978-79 and 1980-81 school years, respectively. My wife and I stayed there in '86 and '99. Same wonderful hospitality I remember from my visit in May 1979.
Florence the week after Easter Sunday?
Have trip planned for Florence for the tuesday after Easter 2005. Will the crowds deminished some from holy week? Staying at Hotel Casci's does anyone know this neighborhood Via Cavour 13. Do they have resturants near that are family owned?
Thanks to All
