Vou colocar umas fotos aleatórias daqui. Firenze é linda! Não vale a pena vir pra ficar menos de 3 noites. Muitos museus, lugares ótimos pra comer e um grande centro de compras. Ontem fomos a Siena. Linda também! E, se possível, muito mais medieval que Firenze. Eles rivalizam com Firenze. Conhecemos um "sienense" que se orgulha em dizer que no sé …
Began the day visiting the roof of the hotel, which boasts a 360 degree view. It was unbelievable, seeing Florence, all at once in all its grandeur. By simply turning around in a circle, one is able to see the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, tower of the Bargello, the spire of the Badia Fiorentina, Capanille of the Cathedral, and San Miniato Church across …
Taxi to Stazione Termini in Rome, and the train to Florence arriving at 1 PM, then taxi to Hotel Cavour on via Proconsolo. The hotel was beautiful, with lovely marbled lobby and comfortable couches. Our room was huge and my daughter had her own little alcove, which she set up as her own room. There was also and the best part excellent air …

Walking around the town is lovely and we taste some wines at a local store and make some purchases for later on.

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Cavour Florence
We stayed at the Cavour on Feb. 11-16, 2005. We were part of a tour group so I selection was prearranged. The first thing that was noticed was the scaffolding on the outside of the building. We ended up in two rooms during the stay mainly out of necessity.
We stayed at the Cavour the week of Thanksgiving 2004 and were very pleased with the hotel. The lobby is well appointed and the rooms are of a good size and in excellent shape. Our rooms were at the front of the hotel and we didn't notice very much street noise at night. Breakfast was a good continental breakfast with a reasonably good selection and included in the room rate. I agree with the previous comments of the roof terrace - be sure and go to the terrace (the stairs are just off the breakfast area on the top floor) - the view of the Duomo and the rest of the old city is excellent! Great location to take photos.
Nice hotel, great location
We stayed at the Grand Hotel Cavour in June of 2004. The lobby was beautiful, it looked recently renovated, but the rooms could use a little work. They were larger than other hotel rooms in Italy. The breakfast was nice and the hotel has a beautiful rooftop terrace that has a great view of the Duomo. It was in a great location, centrally located to all major attractions. We would definitely stay there again!
Better Than Expected!
I recently spent four nights at the Cavour in two different rooms.
The first room, a single, was comfortable but nothing that special. Still, the beds were good, the bathroom very spacious, everything worked and was clean. And the breakfast was quite delicious.
The second room, #507, a double room, was a corner room with a view of the skyline of Florence. It was fabulous! The room was big, with big windows that opened out and allowed us to see and hear the city around us.
The service was great at the Grand Cavour. And the location is superb!! Everything you want to see is within walking distance.
Stayed at this hotel August, 2004. Staff were pleasant and competent. Rooms were adequate, although we had to change once because of inadequate air-conditioning.
Location is excellent--no more than 5 minutes to the Duomo, maybe 10 minutes to either the Accademia or Uffizi Galleries.
Breakfast was adequate and served in a nice dining room. For some reason, they didn't use their rooftop terrace at all. We wandered up to it one morning and were surprised by its lack of use because it has an outstanding view of the Duomo. It would have been wonderful to have breakfast there, but it was obviously not available. Too hot in August perhaps?
This is a superb hotel, especially for the price (which I think our travel agent may have gotten through a consolidator). We visited three days in July, 2004. Although our room didn't look like the promo pictures, it was comparatively spacious (more so than our hotels in the two other cities we visited) and comfortable and well kept. No problems with noise. The air conditioning was quite comfortable, and the shuttered windows could be opened for natural light and fresh air when desired. The breakfast is limited--mostly bread-type items--but in a very pleasant surrounding, and fully adequate with which to begin the day. The adjoining restaurant is expensive, and we did not eat there. The front desk is very gracious and helpful. A perfect location: two blocks one way to the Duomo, two blocks the other way to the Uffizi, with the Bargello in between, and plenty of eating establishments very nearby. Only one caveat (which may not be true for other rooms?)--there was no shower door or curtain of any kind, and the shower wand was a little unruly; the tile floor of the bathroom can become very slippery with water all over it, so exercise care. That notwithstanding, I can't see any reason to stay anywhere else. Look no further! We loved it.
This is a wonderful hotel. Stayed in November and the rates were great.
The staff, especially Barbara, are also great and very helpful. One thing, we still had mosquitos in November!
We stayed four nights at the Cavour during February 2004. Hotels.com had a special offer that averaged out to $97/night for a double with breakfast. The location is ideal, just a 2-minute walk to the Duomo.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and eager to help us with tickets and information. The rooms (we had 2 rooms for 4 people) were spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was generous and beautifully arranged. The location was fabulous. We couldn't ask for more.
