The Hotel Gioia is located in the heart of the historic city, in one of the most convenient locations of any Florence hotel for visiting the old town center on foot. Just 5 minutes from the Duomo and the Baptistery, 10 from Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, it overlooks historic Via Cavour, called Via Larga during the Renaissance when Florence's nobles and merchants choose it as the privileged site for building their sumptuous residences. Even today, you can see buildings from the 15th and 16th centuries, including the splendid Palazzo Medici-Riccardi. The royal palace of Lorenzo the Magnificent and the prototype for the Renaissance's civil architecture of austere aristocratic volumes, it is the jewel box that holds the precious frescoes of the Chapel of the Magi whose fabulous procession contains portraits of the Medici: the atmosphere of enchantment is exalted by a riot of color enhanced by the glitter of lapis lazuli and gold.

  • For the money, this hotel was a great value. The room was pretty good sized, but the bathroom was rather small. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful too. The elevator is quite small, I believe inside it says the capacity is 3 people. Besides, the hotel staff helped us bring all our bags up. One good thing to know, when they clean the room they leave the bathroom window open which is fine, unless you want to keep the mosquitos out!. Read review

  • It's very casual and the staff is extremely helpful and speak great English. The breakfast (breads, cheese and jams) is included in the price and we enjoyed it very much. We got a large triple room with very plain walls (definitely a zero in the Old World charm category) but clean and accomodating. The bathroom was small with an even smaller shower stall but this is the case for all 2 star hotels in Italy.. Read review

  • Excellent location close to all the major Florence sight-seeing locations. The hotel is basic and very clean with good service. Its not extravagant but is perfect if you just need a clean bed and bathroom for a weekend visit.. Read review
