    Good

    Very good coffee and breakfast. Most of the staff very friendly and spoke very good English. Very quiet, even though our room was right at the entrance.

    Our room was a little dark because it was on the ground floor.

    We were attending a conference at the nearby Fortezza da Basso, so the Hotel Cimabue was in very close proximity to the venue. All female reception staff were very pleasant however we encountered one male receptionist who I found to be quite abrupt and rude. We had a large two bedroomed room which was very spacious and clean and was in a quiet part of the hotel so we did not hear much from other guests.

    The breakfast selection was not very varied. The hotel is a good 10min walk to the centre of Florence (Duomo), so there are no doubt similar hotels that are a little closer

    Very clean room (quite romantic) with a good bathroom and shower. Staff very helpful and speak good English About a 15 min walk from the Duomo. Breakfast mediocre - so go and grab a coffee and a cake in one of the numerous piazza's

    Sorrybto say we had a very disappointing stay! The room we booked was a Quad... Advertized as one large ( king) bed and two twins. They even had a picture with description. When we arrived, the room had only a very small double and a queen bed. We were a group of 4 men, all around 6 ft tall, and it was impossible to be comfortable in such a sleeping arrangement! The hotel promised the Booked.net customer service to bring a roll away. They lied...it never happened on night # 1 or night #2 . Five phone calls from bookings.com I think were made in our behalf and to no avail. One of us slept on the floor! For the third night we came in and found they had removed the larger bed and put in 2 twins. Are they crazy? We still had the same problem.. 2 men were not sleeping in the small double together. On the floor again. Only $5 /night offered as compensation.

    Very clean, spacious room in very good condition - seemed to be newly renovated. Spacious bathroom. Friendly, helpful staff willing to assist . Would stay there again.

    Superb

    Hotel Cimabue was a very nice stay. We were there for 4 nights with our college age kids (4) total and had the "quad" room it was actually two rooms joined by a landing and private bathroom. The rooms were fairly spacious and quite clean and comfortable. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the attractions of Florence. The included breakfast was good and the hotel was quiet and restful and the staff was very helpful.

    The one downside of the quad room was that the wireless signal did not reach the room, but it worked well in the lobby and center of the hotel.

    This hotel was a great find. The staff was friendly, helpful, and spoke English. It was in a quieter part of Florence, but wasn't a far walk from either the train station or any of the sites. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a private patio outside our room. The beds were pretty comfortable, and the room was quite clean. The breakfast was fine (juice, cereal, yogurt, bread, pastries, etc...), but the coffee bar complete with a barista was definitely our favorite part.

    No complaints, although, just a note: the after hours policy with the keys was a bit bizarre. There was a code to get in, and then you were supposed to grab your own key from behind the reception desk. We didn't have any issues, but we didn't leave anything too valuable in the room just in case. Also, if you're on the ground floor, expect to be awake as soon as people start having breakfast (chairs being pushed, espresso machine, etc...). Again, this wasn't an issue for us, but wouldn't be the best for people who want a leisurely morning and aren't heavy sleepers.

    Good

    Good location, close to the centre. It was possible to park a car just in front of the hotel. Good value for money. Comfortable hotel for visiting Florence.

    Rooms and corridors are a little bit shabby. Shower was not working properly. At first we were offered a room on the first floor with a distinct smell of smoke, although all rooms were supposed to be non-smoking. Fortunately we got another room on the second floor upon our request. WiFi was availible only at the lobby.

    Good

    Rooms were nicely presented, including the bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and breakfast was adequate. Location is fairly quiet.

    We couldn't always connect to the wi-fi hotspot. The fallback was an internet-connected laptop in the breakfast/reception area that was available to use for a small fee, but the computer was removed on the second day, so we couldn't get on to the web.

    Good

    The location was some what close to shopping and attractions

    The bathroom was the size of a closet and the room was very small. When I booked the room they advertise a shuttle service to the airport, they called a cab which cost 27 euro. We arrived at the hotel at 11:00 and had to wait for our room.

    Very clean rooms, very nice and helpful staff, quite room, comfortable bed

    I wished there were fresh fruits at breakfast also. A bit too far to main attractions of the city.
