    We have stayed at Hotel Cardinal before. The hotel is perfectly situated and easy walking distance from the main attractions, you can see the Duomo from the breakfast room. The hotel staff are helpful. There is a great family bakery opposite. We would stay there again and recommend this hotel.

    No lift, the flights of steps up to the hotel are very steep.

    Very good

    The desk staff was very nice and helpful. Our room had a nice view of the Duomo and was very quiet. Baby cot was very nice.

    Climbing three flights every time we went back to the room. There is no secure place for a stroller at the street level, so the stroller had to go up and down as well. For young people without a baby, or anyone who likes lots of exercise, the climb is worth it because of the nice rooms and convenient location.

    I read about the Hotel Cardinal of Florence in Rick Steve's guide to Florence and Tuscany and chose it based on his description. My room was very clean and had a modern bathroom. It was very hot and humid during my visit so the air conditioning was vital. The hotel is located on a quiet street near a piazza with several affordable restaurants. In addition it is within 10 minutes to the Duomo and Santa Croce and within easy walking distance from other important sites. There is a view of the Duomo from the breakfast room, and the breakfast was always ample: cereal, yogurt, fruit, juice, rolls, bread, and coffee. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Ida is a delight. She loves Florence, could answer all of my questions, speaks at least three languages fluently, and can function in several others. I really enjoyed my stay there and would recommend this hotel to my friends.

    The Hotel is on the third floor, and there is no elevator. If someone has trouble with stairs, this hotel might not be a good choice.

    Buffet breakfast. Free Wi-Fi. Location near sites. Staff.

    Three floor walkup! Noisy street activity at night. No comfortable chair to sit in within room. Breakfast room should be open for tea and coffee all day for fellow travelers to share experiences and ideas.

    Very good

    Location and v ery good quality for price value.

    Well, have a lift could improve the quality of the hotel services but the old stone steps were really charming. At the end to walk upon them was a pleasure and I can well avoid modern lifts and bring my bags by hands from time to time. More important could be to improve breakfast which was really low cost and low quality with genuine food. I could pay let me say ten euro more for each person for a fresh tuscan breakfast that help me to jump a big lunch and to have more time to visit Florence (tuscan bread, ricciarelli, salame, prosciutto, finocchiona etc, etc.). I suppose that it could not be difficult to make an agreement with a near "panificio", "salumeria" or "pasticceria". Tuscan food is one of the best in the world and is cheap why to not offer it also in the hotel ?

    Good

    Very nice staff, very friendly. The hotel is on the top floor of the building, so 5 stairs up. No elevator. The air conditioning is a bit loud, but nice to have. Very clean room, every day new clean towels. Breakfast is only with sweets, no cheese or ham or anything. But all together a nice hotel.

    This hôtel was horrible. Three floors to reach the Hotel without elevator. The steps were steepy and when you are tired in the evening after a long day of walking, it is just painfull. At the reception there was one girl very nice but at the last day we met another personnel who was just insolent, not smiling and yealing on us The only positive point is the location, quiet close from Duomo but if you look for comfort, don't go there. In addition it is really poor value for money..

    Their staff are friendly and nice. Wifi is free and fast. Its terrace's view is fantastic.

    It can't believe that when I lay down on the bed, a huge size (must mention the size) cockroach climb up to my bed and even my body! It psyched out.
