What a Sight!
What a treat it was to open our green shuttered window for a mouth-dropping view of the magnificent Duomo! We were also fortunate enough to have our own private red-tiled balcony from which we enjoyed viewing the beautiful gardens below us. Our room was clean and spacious, our large bed comfortable, the bathroom was very modern and the staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. We enjoyed our breakfast of rolls and coffee from the sunny rooftop breakfast room and took in the view of the other side of this beautiful and historic city. We were conveniently located and walked to museums, restaurants and attractions easily. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and look forward to staying there again sometime soon, I hope!
Great hotel for the value
We just got back from Florence staying at Hotel Panorama for three days. It's exceeded all our expectations with the amount of money we paid for the room. The stay at their 'delux room' at the top floor (6th floor) of the hotel with air conditioning (very welcoming for last week which got pretty hot), and with a great view of Florence, but still at a very reasonable rate compared to other 2 star hotels in Florence (less than 80 Euros including a simple breakfast). It has a lift up to to 5th floor. so we had to climb one flight of stairs to go up to our room. But we didn't carry much stuff, so it didn't matter to us at all. Our private bathroom with tub was big and has newer facility, and very clean. Also it was quiet since the room faces a garden courtyard. The picture you see in the tripadvisor pic of the hotel is literally the view from our room! The breakfast area has also very nice views, as mentioned in previous review. The only drawback I can think of is it's a little bit far from the S.M.N. train station (it's located right behind the San Marco Museum), but still a manageble 10-15 minutes walk.
I would definitely stay there again if the rate stays the same relative to other hotels in the Florence tourist central area.
Love the Hotel Panorama!
We stayed at the Hotel Panorama in Florence in mid-May 2005. It was great! I was hesitant of what we would find due to the low price, even if it was a 2-star hotel. We had just stayed in a 2-star hotel in Rome, paying much more, and the Rome hotel was so-so.
Anyway, the Hotel Panorama was great!! The room was huge by European standards, with a big new bathroom. We stayed in room 31 which had a wonderful view of Florence. The hotel was within walking distance of the major sights and the hotel staff was very helpful.
I would definitely stay at Hotel Panorama again. It is a bargain!
Nice, friendly, near historical centre
i'm some times in weekend in Florence and staying at Hotel Panorama: beautiful view from the breakfast veranda and from rooms on the top floors as well as charming and helpful people at the front desk. Moreover the place is really only at five minutes walking distance from the Duomo in the towncenter so most things you might want to visit are very close, railstation Santa maria Novella is near too.
I was recently in Florence meeting some friends and we all stayed at Hotel Panorama. The location is perfect, really just minutes away from the Cathedral and all the other main historical attractions; and, if you need to (like we did) or are simply not using public transportation when visiting, you can easily reach it by car (which in Florence - believe me - is not quite so common with central hotels). People at the front desk were nice and the rooms we were assigned were simple but clean: I personally find this quite important. We had a nice time and enjoyed our stay: we will soon come back for sure. By the way rates were definetely affordable.
What more to say.....just excellent!
Enjoyed our stay
Well...what to say? Perfect location (Ever heard of Michelangelo's beautiful David? It's just around the corner in the Accademia Gallery) - reasonable rates - easy but clean accomodation. In addition to all this the view, especially from the top floors, is really something else...believe us: Florence's roofs dominated by the magnificent Cathedral. By the way people at the front desk were very helpful with marvellous dinner suggestions in nice reastaurants close by...
Francesca & Marco
Loved the famous view
Imagine waking up in the morning and having your cup of coffee while admiring the beauty of Florentine Renaissance Architecture..... Well, this is what you will experience if you have the chance to spend one or more nights in this centrally located budget hotel. Rooms and their furniture are 'easy but clean'. And the best of it is you have the unique possibility of an astonishing (and unpayable) view of the city from the breakfast room (the Cathedral, San Lorenzo, Santa Croce can almost be 'touched' so near they are). By the way people at the front desk are friendly and speak very good english which is always a good help. If I'll travel to Florence again this hotel will with no doubt meet my choice again.
Budget hotel in central florence
My personal suggestion for a stay in central Florence: the hotel is located just a block away from the Accademia Art Gallery - to say the truth all other main attractions of the city are also within walking distance. Budget rates, clean rooms and friendly people at the front desk willing to help you with any question you might have: what do you need more??
Nice and friendly
nice and clean, managed by very friendly people, not expensive and near to the centre..you can go walking everywhere
Central but quiet, having a professional staff and a good relationship quality/price. Wonderful landscape (panorama!)

... something like that happen considering we now think he was a gypsy who go around doing these sorts of things to tourists. Thankfully I was quick enough to not take the bracelet from his hand but some people aren't so lucky and get stuck holding it which means they eventually have to pay for it because they refuse to take it back and threaten to call the police if you do not give them the money. It's things like this that make you feel like you aren't in a first class country ...
... comes here to see Michelangelo's David, which may be the most celebrated sculpture in the world. Soon after entering the gallery, the image of this masterpiece becomes visible at the end of a long corridor, which is lined with several other sculptures by Michelangelo, including the Quatro Prigioni, a series of unfinished sculptures depicting prisoners struggling to free themselves from the marble stone.
... and now I had a cardie I didn't really need. Next was the Santa Maria Novella, which was way better, and not just because I could take photo's... It was because the staff were much nicer ;-)
Santa Maria Novella is a beautiful church in, red, green and white marble, like the Duomo. It has enormous oil paintings on the walls. I found myself wondering about the stations of the cross. I always thought every Catholic church had the stations of the cross around the ...

This morning I decided to do the other walking tour that is put on by the hostel. This one wasn't as good as the other one, but still went to some interesting places. After getting separated from the group at the start, we found them and then visited an old Palazzo, Santa Maria Novella church, Ponte Santa Trinita, Espirito Santo church, Palazzo Pitti and the Ponte Vecchio. After the tour I quickly headed ...
