We stayed here last year while in Florence and could not have picked a more convenient spot! The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. Not fancy, but perfect for a few days in Firenze!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Casci Florence
Home Away from Home!!
The Hotel Casci is the BEST hotel we have ever stayed at on our travels to Italy! It is spotless, the staff treated us like family, and the breakfasts were ample. Our room was terrific with great towels and a large bathroom. We were sorry to leave after a week's stay, it was like leaving family. We had to move on and stayed at four star hotels in Padua and Lake Como but they did not compare to our beloved Casci........We can't wait to visit again. ML and Skye Winter Park, Florida
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and the Lombardi family was wonderful! We were greeted with chilled champagne and glasses in our room upon arrival. Our room was simple and clean with a modern bathroom, color TV, safe, mini-fridge, and a street view. Breakfast every morning was charming. Loved it!
Great Place to Stay!!
I stayed at the Hotel Casci for a couple of nights during the Summer of "03. What a charming place, but the highlight for me was the helpful staff and incredible breakfast. They helped us set up a walking tour and thus served as a travel agent for us. Breakfasts in Europe can be pretty bland, but this place does a very special spread. The hotel is located close to the main sites so it easy to look forward to the short stroll through the city center back to the hotel. Love those Fresco ceilings.
I will be back!!!
Great family-run place
My family stayed at the Hotel Casci for 6 nights from April 17-April 23, 2003. It was a well-run hotel and very accomodating with a great location. They booked 2 wonderful tours for us. The breakfast was all you could eat with freshly made cappucino, coffee, or hot chocolate. The room was small, but clean and had a refrigerator, safe, and cable tv. They were more than happy to help us with anything we asked for. We would definitely stay there again.
If you intend to stay at this hotel, be aware that it is upstairs from the main entrance,accessable by a 1person elevator or stairs! It was a chore to bring all our bags to their lobby. When we finished with the bags, the owner's mother was a bit annoyed that we had so many bags! The next day, we were going to do some last minute shopping prior to our flight. We decided to skip their breakfast and that seemed to be another cause for an attitude!! If i wanted attitude, I could have stayed home!! I will say the rooms were nice. Aside from that, they won't see any business from me again!
Thank you !
Thank you to the Lombardi family for making my stay in Florence last week so comfortable. This was my first experience of this fantastic city, and the hospitality and friendliness they showed made my visit even more memorable. I had a really lovely time and could have stayed for a lot longer! I hope to return to Florence sooner rather than later, and I would very much like to stay at Hotel Casci again.
nice breakfast spread (and nice cappucino/coffee maker), free internet service (a nice perk), gave orientation when we arrived including giving us a good map; great location midpoint between Duomo and Accademia; amazingly helpful staff (one of two high points of the trip hotelwise), good TV access (English language news), adequate room - overall amazing staff
The service at this hotel was just wonderful.. Free library of tour books, free Internet access, wonderful free breakfast, including yummy hot chocolate, and the most knowledgeable staff you could ever ask for.
The location is fantastic, too - We only had to take one bus in 4 days of sightseeing from our home base. We highly, highly recommend this hotel for it's very reasonable price and incredible service. If you decide on this hotel, send Paolo and his mom our very best (Chuck & Harriet)
Five Star Hospitality!
I spent one week at the Casci. The location is excellent (walk to just about everyting), the hotel is clean and comfortable (and charming), the price is nice and the hospitality is off the scale! I was traveling alone and felt very much at home in this family run hotel.

... people only get their bikes out for "fun" not as a means of transportation. Definitely a plus to ride a bike instead of a car here, for one cars are not allowed to drive on all the streets, two if you look at some of my photos some streets are only wide enough for a small car to go through, three try to park! these people are masters at parallel parking in the tightest of spaces... I"m sure the locals can give more reasons to not drive here but that would be enough for ...
... collectively were much darker in hues and scenes. Here in Florence, Bridget agreed that the art was much more religious; lots of Madonna and child portrayals. I was more familiar with the names of the artists.
After digesting our fill of art, we found that it was only 2 pm. I suggested that we take a look at "that church in the distance"; not realising it was the Duomo's cupola (dome) that had caught my eye. Wow and wow; so hypnotic with ...
Florence for the day seems like a long way to go, but it is achievable with an early start. And an early start it was, too. Leaving home at just after 5.15, I drove to Ashford for the 0543 to Stratford. Surprisingly busy, even at that time of day. An easy change to the DLR (I had remembered to check the TfL live departures to know that I didn't need to run) and I was at City Airport by 6.45 for a 7.25 flight. It's much easier ...
... procuitto di Toscana, Bufala Mozzerella and three different salted fish for the chef to try. We had a 12:30 reservation for lunch at Baldivinos...many good recommendations on websites...so of the thousand or so choices, this was ours. We had a table outside and started with a liter of vino da tavola rosso and some water. Next came the bruschetta and crostini with liver pâté....ok I can hear you ...
... up the sky from a little stone bench and watched a cruise ship leave the Harbour. We have all thoroughly loved Venice and we would definitely return. We arrived at our Florence apartment with a great train ride and a quick cab. Susanna met us at the door and introduced us to a wonderful apartment close to a supermarket, farmers market and all the sites to see in the city. We met our downstairs neighbour who had ...
