Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 14, 2004

The Hotel Calzaiuoli has a great location - halfway between the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria on the "no cars allowed" Via Calzaiuoli. From our corner room, we could look across the street to Via del Corso where a talented mime was putting on a show for a hundred or more charmed tourists every evening.

Very good breakfast. They have prosciutto! Excellent prosciutto!! Every morning!!! A pretty breakfast area, a friendly and service-oriented wait staff, and good coffee help start the day right.

Close to shopping, museums, and just a quarter of a mile from the Ponte Vecchio.

The lobby is small but newly renovated (January of 2004). The rooms are nicely decorated, almost elegant.

My only complaint about this hotel is heard often about Italian bathrooms. The bathroom itself was lovely -- all marble. But why can't they figure out how to keep the water in the tub when you take a shower? What is the point of that partial glass shower door? It does nothing! The floor was a half inch deep in water every morning. Other than that, this is a very nice hotel, indeed. Not a bargain, mind you, but reasonably priced (especially in winter.)

Unique Quality: Did I mention they have prosciutto for breakfast?

Directions: On the main pedestrian shopping street in Florence, Via Calzaiuoli, halfway between the Duomo and the Piazza della Signoria.
