I have been staying at this hotel since early 1998 and have returned in every year except one, since. The building has changed a great deal since those early days and is now modern and has every facility. I am now 69 and would be perfectly happy to stay here alone. The staff are fantastically helpful and have a vast knowledge of their city. Louise (New zealander/italian), and Laura (italian) are exceptionally helpful and will book museums, restaurants etc willingly. They will tell you the italian for something you might want to buy in case the shop does not speak other languages. Wonderful!!
The rooms are comfortable, very clean and bright, with ensuites and t.v. Some have outstanding views over the city. Breakfast is a good, varied buffet with loads of tea, coffee, juice etc.
It takes less than two minutes to walk to the duomo and five to Mercato Centrale ( a must for visitors who love food) All major places of interest are within easy walking distance.
I have stayed in hotels of all star ratings, huts in the african bush, YHA's etc but this is one place I return to again and again where the staff feel like old friends and the welcome is superb. GO THERE!!
The value for money is unquestionable.

Louise, My rating were all five star. They just take up loads of space when I copy and paste them but will appear on the report in Trip Advisor.

Very central location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 19, 2005

Rooms clean but older and spartan, no TV or fridge in rooms and no AC either. Scariest lift in Europe! Bright spacious breakfast area with plenty to eat and free internet access, rooms were quiet and afforded a good night's sleep

Unique Quality: Great location within 3 minutes of Duomo, 6 or 7 to the Galleria d'Uffizi, less than ten minutes from the Arno to bridge across to Ponte Vecchio and Boboli. Best ice cream in Italy across the road !
Does need bathrooms refitted , facelift for facia and some home comforts to come up to speed with competitiors. ** UPDATE** Rooms completely refurbished in 2006 - high in pecking ordr for a possible revisit 2007! * *
Could we have done better ? Definitely .
Would it nevertheless 'do' for a repeat visit ?
Definitely again.

Right Near Il Duomo!!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 17, 2005

The place was easy to find, right on the main street down from Il Duomo (only 1 block away!!). Within walking distance of the train station and near to all the sights. It has a great location. I remember it being a nice quiet room. Not lavishly decorated, but quaint and clean. The breeze was nice in May. We didn't have an air-conditioner, but I don't know if they leave those off until summer. It was very characteristic of all the small private hotels that I had been staying during my entire trip. Not lavish, but not unpleasant; very comfortable!!!

Unique Quality: Quaint as I mentioned before. Clean and quiet. We had a nice breakfast in the lounge area. There was also internet access in the lounge. The place is decorated by owner Australia-native Louise and her husband Giacinto. The paintings in the rooms were all done by Giacinto!! It is very pleasant and I would stay there again. They also own San Giovanni (http://www.hotelsangiovanni.com/) across the street if you don't get a room at Il Perseo. Although I haven't stayed there, if it is as Il Perseo was, I am sure that its great!

Directions: From the train station, head straight through the Piazza d'ell Unita d'Italia down Via dei Panzani. Head left onto Via dei Cerretani, you will see it on the right hand side before you get to Il Duomo!!!

Sweetest staff ever

Nice sized room with adequate bed. Spotless shared bathrooms. Inidvidual thermostats with ample heating ... great for the January cold ! Location is amazing: two minute walk from the Duomo and seven minutes from the train station.

Unique Quality: The staff was extremely caring when i fell ill with a nasty bout of the flu. I was just starting to get sick the night we checked in, and my boyfriend asked the receptionist for a nearby pharmacy on his way to pick up some meds for me. From then on the receptionists would ask him how I was doing everytime he walked by and would give him hot water and tea for me. When I needed to see a doctor, the receptionist called all the reputable english speaking services and got me an appointment.

Directions: Right next to the Duomo.
