    Historical Traveler Reviews Adler Cavalieri Florence

    Great hotel! Highly recommend it!

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Adler Cavalieri for two nights in late April 2005. The hotel staff was extremely welcoming, kind and helpful. We had tried to book reservations to the Uffizi a few days before and they said they were booked until May 11! The staff at the Adler Cavalieri were able to get us immediate reservations to the Uffizi as well as the Accademia. They provided us with a city map upon check-in, pointing out the "hot spots" as well as a few of their favorite shops and restaurants.

    The room was very spacious (especially compared to the very small one we came from in Rome), was immaculately cleaned, had a great view of the garden courtyard, nice bathroom and my favorite part...they leave the yummiest chocolates on your pillow! What a great treat after returning to the room after a long day of sight-seeing! The hotel is also in a great location - very close to the main train station and we were able to walk everywhere - to the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Accademia, Duomo.

    We hope to return to Florence one day and we will certainly be staying at Adler Cavalieri when we do!

    Terrific boutique hotel in great location

    from

    We just returned from our stay at Adler Cavalieri, and were extremely impressed by the quality of the service, the comfortable accomodations, and the proximity of the hotel to many sites we visited. The rooms are quite nicely decorated, immaculate, roomy and comfortable. We asked for rooms facing the back of the hotel, as it's on a noisy and not very attractive street. In addition to the rooms being quiet, they had very comfortable (firm) beds, roomy armoire-type furniture to store clothes, table with two chairs, desk, and french doors that opened to the outside, overlooking a charming garden and rooftops. The grey marble bathroom was a good size, immaculate with heated towel rack, great shower, and plenty of space to lay out toiletries.

    The common rooms at Adler Cavalieri are all lovely and pleasant to be in - the spacious reading room with newspapers of the day, breakfast room that is charming and light, looking out on the garden area, and other nooks and crannies. What was most impressive to us, however, was the impeccable service, particularly the extremely competent concierge services provided to us during our three-night stay. The Hotel staff were able to get us tickets to the Uffizi, Galleria and Pitti Palace that otherwise were sold out, and made reservations for us at several charming restaurants they recommended, quite good food and value, steering us away from some of the more popular restaurants in the guide book that they felt were overpriced.

    All in all, we highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a smaller, boutique hotel with excellent accommodations!

    Enjoy your stay!

    Was transferred to this hotel after the Hotel Ambascaitori had a water problem and could not honour our booking. Was aprehensive as had read many poor reviews of Florence hotels and did not know what to expect. We needn't have worried. The hotel has a grim external appearance but once inside it was quite different: well decorated and maintained and friendly staff. The room was not particularly large but enough for 2 and was spotless. The soundproofing was excellent and although we were on the first floor facing the street we never heard the traffic. Heating was terrific, it being a particularly cold spell when we stayed over, and we were warm as toats! The maid refreshed everything daily..............freshly pressed sheets & pillowcases, a whole range of towels, etc. The public rooms were attractive too........nice leather armchairs, wood panelling, etc. Breakfast was more than adequate with a generous selection of cereals, cold meats, sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs,etc. The orange juice could have been better but the fresh coffee more than made up for it..............with your choice of expresso, cappucicno or whatever you wanted. If you enjoy an afternoon cup of tea you'll end up with a generous teapot and a selection of small pastries.......well worth it! And if you are a fitness freak they also have a sauna & gym (extra charge) but we let our feet do the walking all across Florence as the Hotel is within walking distance of most of the city sights

    Good, but not Fabulous

    from

    There is nothing wrong with this hotel, but we didn't think it matched the five star experience that previous reviewers gave. If you stay here, keep in mind that it is on a VERY busy section of street, and if your room is on the street side it will be noisy until about 1:00AM. Some of the staff are very sweet and helpful, others are downright surly and unpleasant. (We watched one clerk continue to tell every patron checking in that they did not have their reservation and that it would cost an extra 50 euro. if they could even find them a room...) We had to look at many rooms until we got the one we requested, but once we were in it, we found it a very pleasant room, with an excellent bed, and a nice bathroom. The only problem with the room itself is that there is very little storage space. There is a small wardrobe with three very small drawers, which is fine for one person, but really is not enough for two people staying five days. The breakfast is very good, and there are nice spaces to sit in all around the ground floor. (It was too cold to use the outdoor spaces, but they looked lovely) If you are dependant on WIFI internet, you will be reduced to sitting on a smalll couch in the lobby most of the time, but they do have it. (If you have trouble, there is only one staff member who can help, and he's only there sporadically.) It was a convenient location for us, since we were combining sightseeing with work at the conference hall. You can walk to anywhere from the hotel within about 10 minutes (as is true from most of Florence). All in all, we would certainly recomend this hotel, but do think it more of a three or four star experience. It is indeed a good value for the money, and if you know what to expect, is a nice place to stay in a very beautiful city

    Great hotel, great location!

    from

    My husband and I stayed here for three nights last month. The hotel is very close to the train station, making it central to all sites. The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous, and provided us with excellent dinner recommendations, and maps. They also happily made reservations for us at the museums. We had a quiet inside room with a window facing the small courtyard. The linens were crisp, and the room was very clean. I highly recommend a visit to Florence, and to this hotel!

    Excellent 4 star hotel!!!

    from

    First, the two month research my wife I made on the internet greatly paid off. We stayed in Italy the last weeks of July 2004 and this hotel of less than 2 years old is well-worth your stay. Minutes away from the main train station, the staff were very accomodating, the lobby, passages and our room were beautifully decorated and truly clean bathroom. Breakfast is served in a wonderful diningroom with great choices to start your day. We can sincerely recommend this hotel when you factor the price and quality in a big city like Florence. Trust me when I say that the pictures you see on their website are what you get, in fact its even nicer when you get there. (The other hotels we stayed at were Palladium in Rome, Ai Mori D'Oriente in Venice, Villa Latartana in Positano and La Minerva in Capri, all recommended).

    Nice hotel

    from

    Good hotel, nice amenities, walking distance to the river (not close enough for a view). The staff was courteous and provided good restaurant recommendations - superior food at reasonable prices. When my cousin's wallet was stolen near the train station, the hotel staff went out of their way to help her obtain the necessary phone numbers.

    ... hostel I stayed in...... Although for only 10 Euros a night and only a 5 minute walk to the Piazza del Duomo, it wasn't bad. I was also privileged enough to be called "Professoressa Sophie" by Mrs Radice when I was asked to contribute information about various artworks. Looks like I could always go into teaching if marrying an Italian count doesn't work out………

    ... cathedrals. After some time the crowds get worse so we move off through narrow streets with interesting collections of shops (not all tourist focussed) towards the Piazza della Signoria passing the Palazzo Vecchio with its weird tower stuck on the side which looks far more likely to fall over than the leaning tower of Pisa. Here there are some interesting statues including a copy of David by Michelangelo (we don't have time to see the real one). By this ...

    The next morning was not bright and sunny for all of us. That said, Lauren and Jessica headed out bright and early to see Michelangelo's David. "Wow, David." Needless to say, they took a “Jane and Lauren” approach ...

    We spent a morning at the Uffizi Gallery with its multitude of statues and paintings, including on all the ceilings. The Uffizi was built in 1581. Photos are not allowed inside and I have not found a website showing them for you.

    A room has Fra Agelico's paintings all in gold frames. Great stuff. He lived from 1395 to 1455. In the bookstore I saw a book which would be an easy to read overview of Florence: Florence – Just Add Water.

    There is also an exhibit showing how illuminated manuscripts are made and has manuscripts. There are colored powders including burnt sienna, gold powder, bright red (cinnabar), ultramarine ...
