    I am well travelled and I will honestly say that your hotel staff was one of the best! They were all so friendly and helpful. I stayed one night, then returned on my flight out because the service was that good. I'll definitely be back and would recommend your fabulous place!

    My first room only had 1 outlet in the bathroom.

    The location was excellent, the staff were extremely helpful. It was nice and quiet. The breakfast was excellent and we loved the roof terrace evening cocktails.

    the receptionist made a tlelphone on our behalf to enquire about tickets and charged us an exorbitant fee of 6 euros, which was so unnecessary and hsould have been free, as a courtesy, we thouhgt. The decor in the room needed painting and the bathroom fan did not work, not did one of the lights in the bathroom.

    The location of the Hotel was fantastic, only 5 minutes easy walk from the centre of the old Florence with the Uffizi, Academia, etc. The lay out and appointments of the Hotel were elegant and the staff were lovely and very helpful. For the non-Italian speaking guest, the staff had very good English.

    The hotel was in a great location and I enjoyed the great views from roof wine bar.

    Grand Hotel Cavour is a comfortable hotel in an ideal situation for exploring Florence. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and good service. I was travelling with a friend who needed soya milk and after the first day this was always provided as soon as we arrived for breakfast. The hotel is close to a selection of restaurants from the reasonably priced to the more expensive. It is worth asking the Hotel staff to recommend good places to eat.

    Convenient location for seeing the many sights on offer, very helpful staff and early evening drinks on the roof terrace was a real bonus. Wonderful views and lovely informal atmosphere in which to meet other guests and swap stories and advice on where to go.

    The wardrobe was very small and the lack of coat hooks in the room added to this.

    We loved the rooftop patio on the 6th floor! It was a nice romantic spot to have a glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres. The furniture was great and 1st class! We loved the hotel and the location. The only downfall was the parking situation but once we figured it out, it was easy since we went back a 2nd time!

    Fabulous

    The hotel is well placed within Florence for all of the museums and art galleries. The hotel has a wonderful roof top bar which is provides an exciting view of the City. Some of the staff are really very good particularly on the front desk The rooms are of a good size Breakfast is good and the staff helpful should you have a particular request

    In respect of the roooms the lack of a good wardrobe. Anybody staying for more than five days would be living out of suit case for most of the times as the size of wardrobes is very limiting. Though the roof top terrace is good it could be greatly improved in respect of the ambiance that it provides. Closing by 11pm is not a good idea. There are other hotels in the area who seem to be able to create a magical ambiance at very low cost. Though some of the staff are excellent there are a few who let the side down. Given the nature of the hotel its vital that all of the reception staff speak english and also demonstrate a willingness to use the language.

    The location was excellent, right in the center of Florence. Large room with a comfortable bed. The breakfast was great. Wonderful rooftop terrace with a nice view of whole town.

    Maybe the parking in the area if you have a car
