    Rooms are spacious, very clean, calm and confortable. Everything you need is there.Excellent location In the heart of the city, five minutes from the cathedral but very quite area. Very convenient and secure. Lorenzo( who speaks french and english) and sara were very helpful, perfect. with subtleness and discretion. All the informations you need like maps, restaurants addresses, city tours, renting bicycles are available at the hotel. Your car is taken to a private garage for about 30 euros per 24h.For those who would like a bit more confort, you can ask for bathroom kit(wardrobe+slippers+creme) for an extra cost of 8 euros . Jacussi and spa are waiting for you. You will get your private pass to come and go anytime of day and night at your convenience. Our stay was too short. Wish to go back!

    When we first arrived, and we walked through the main gate, I thought, i'd made a terrible mistake. I couldn't have been more wrong! Our room was amazing, it had everything we could possibly want, air conditioning, pc, internet access, safe, minibar, the list goes on. Breakfast was very good, with a good selection. The owner was very helpful, booked tickets for us and recommended restaurants which were excellent. Very central location. A very pleasant experience, highly recommended.

    We loved our room at Tourist House Ghiberti. Staying there for four nights cost the same or less than the other two hotels we booked in Rome and Venice, but Ghiberti offered by far the best accommodations of the three. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and pretty. It was outfitted with everything we could possibly have wanted, including a desktop computer with internet, TV, reading lights, etc. There was even a contraption for catching mosquitoes. Breakfast in the morning was lovely, and we could eat on a quiet patio. The location was perfect - a short walk from the main destinations of Firenze, but just removed enough to be shielded from the throngs of tourists we encountered closer to the Duomo. We also were able to walk to and from the train station with our luggage when we arrived and departed. Ghiberti was the perfect hotel.

    It became clear by our third or fourth day at Ghiberti, if not sooner, that we were not the favored guests of the proprietors. As we checked out, we found ourselves wondering if we had somehow wronged or offended them, because we observed them acting with extreme friendliness to other guests, while they treated us coldly. It may be that we were a young couple and came home later at night than the other guests, and our attempts at entering quietly were unrealized in such a small (5 room) hotel. Even so, we loved the hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting Firenze and looking for an affordable hotel with the amenities of an expensive one!

    Great location in a quiet street. You can reach the hotel walking from the train or bus station, and walk to the Doumo and shopping streets. Very goog restaurants around. Large rooms, well equiped bathroom and very good breakfast.

    The mattres should be changed, there were ondulations and a hole on it.

    The location was excellent right beside the duomo. Room was comfortable with modern facilities such as computer with Internet, DVD player and DVDs, satellite tv, surround sound, minibar, powerful shower, good lighting and excellent AC. Also the b&b had a nice jacuzzi and sauna. The breakfast each morning is plentiful and staff very helpful booking restaurants and activities for us. Best guest house I ever stayed in.

    The location is wonderful - right in the center of Florence, a two minute walk from the Duomo. Clean, quiet, with a very generous breakfast.

    it was difficult to locate. It was night and I walked past the building three times, expecting more of a hotel-like sign. It's in what appears to be a residential building. If you showed a picture of it's facade on the web site, it could be helpful.

    Fabulous

    Huge room. Very clean. High ceiling with paintings. Location is good too.

    The staff/owner could be more helpful when we asked for sight seeing information. Yes it's a small city and everything is in walking distance but it would be better to know more.

    Excellent location, good price, great in-room amenities

    There was no cream for coffee, and breakfast selections were a bit too limited.

    Tourist House Ghiberti is very conveniently located, allowing you to easily walk to tourist attractions and also the main railway station. We enjoyed staying in a traditional Florentine building with the old central elevator and having an ornate patterned ceiling in our room. The room was huge and well furnished with a very large bathroom. A bonus was having a computer in the room as we did not take one with us. Claudio was an excellent host, very courteous and helpful. An extensive buffet breakfast was provided, not just the bread and coffee we had been led to expect. The room was a bit noisy at times, but this is what you expect in Florence and the convenient location more than compensated for this.
