“Feels like home...with perks!”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

I am a single female traveler who has stayed at the Hotel Perseo 3 times in 2 years. This hotel is owned by gracious and kind Louise and Giacinto who treated me as a welcome guest in their beautiful property. Of course, I must mention the incredible central location that is unbeatable and close to anywhere you could possible need to go for a vacation in Florence. That is an obvious perk, but what stands out about this hotel is the welcoming, helpful people who work there. Laura and Tani go out of their way to help guests with any possible aspect of being in Florence, and Anna's smiling face every morning in the breakfast room is a delightful way to start the day. Other staff members are excellent, too, but I just don't know their names... While I was at the Perseo, I received some incredible, life-changing news and, as a solo traveler, had no friends or family nearby to share my news with. I ran down to see Laura at the reception desk and shared my news with her and with the others as I saw them. They were supportive and sweet and celebrated my joyful news along with me. At the Perseo, guests are treated like good friends. I will always go back to the Perseo and highly recommend it to anyone traveling in Florence- couples, families, and solo travelers. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the price is right, too! Can't wait to go back!

This unassuming hotel is right by the Duomo and Baptistery and not far from Palazzo Strozzi and the main train station. It is easy to miss the entrance as it is a doorway sandwiched between shops and although Reception is on the 3rd floor, you don't have to drag your luggage up flights of stairs as there is a lift. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and the breakfast was not bad. Despite not being luxurious, our room was clean and comfortable and the price is not at all bad value for the money, given the location,.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon through Italy. This was the only Hotel we stayed in on our trip, we went for B&B's in Rome and Florence. But we were very happy with the hotel. It's so close to the things we wanted to do. THe breakfast was great every morning. The room was clean and spacious and a had a great view. We would definetely stay here if we get the chance to return to Florence!

Highly recommended! Short walk from the main train station. Extremely close to attractions. They let us drop our bags off, as we arrived before check-in and provided us with detailed maps and advise on what to do until check-in. Very friendly manager. Room was very clean, large en suite bathroom with large bed and day lounge. Breakfast was the nicest we had in all of Europe! We felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant, not a breakfast room. Variety was incredible.

Nervous traveller, felt very safe staying here, comfortable bed, no street noise.

Will recommend to all our friends who visit Florence!

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's less than a minute to the Duomo and close to every place you might want to visit in Florence. We arrived by train and it was a very easy walk from the train station even with all our luggage.

We had a family room with two single beds and a double and it was very spacious and perfectly clean. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom however is pretty small but functional. Shower has very low water pressure though.

The hotel shares the building with two hostels. The lobby is on the third floor and the rooms are either on the third or on the fourth floor. The elevator is tiny: it will only accommodate two people.

Wifi is free and it worked great in our room. Breakfast is also free and adequate. Hotel staff is helpful and friendly.

I would definitely recommend Hotel Perseo to anyone visiting Florence.
