Historical Traveler Reviews De Lanzi Florence
We stayed at the Hotel De Lanzi in July 2004. The hotel was clean and the rooms were lovely. The location was great. The hotel is right near the duomo and within walking distance of everything. The breakfast was very good. The service was excellent. We would stay here again.
Great hotel in a great location
We had booked 3 nights at another hotel which turned out to be horrible. We happened upon Hotel De Lanzi and thankfully, they had rooms available for our last 2 nights so we moved there. The difference between the hotels was like night and day! A previous user has noted that Hotel De Lanzi is expensive but for $25eu more than our previous hotel, our double room was WELL worth it - the location is unbeatable, the room clean and bright, the staff friendly and breakfast fairly good (no hot food). The showers are a bit small but servicable. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again in a heartbeat.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat
I'm surprised to find negative reviews of this hotel because I loved it. It's a *wonderful* location, half a block from the Campanile, which made it very convenient if we wanted to come back to use the bathroom or drop off our shopping bags. Our rooms were average sized for Italy, but very comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathrooms were a good size too, very clean and modern. The staff could not have been more kind and considerate! When we asked about how to get to Cinque Terre, the front desk hostess kindly looked up the train schedule and gave us advice. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends. Next time I'm in Florence, I'd definitely try to stay here.
Loved the hotel de lanzi
I arrived in Florence on April 5th,2004 and found my hotel very easily. It is centrally located in downtown Florence. Enza at the reception desk was extremely helpful,kind and curteous. My room was small but extremely clean and comfortable.It was well equiped with all that I may need. Every day began with a beautiful breakfast that included OJ coffee tea rolls meats cheese cereal and milk yogurts.etc. At all times the staff was helpful always giong out of their way to assist. Staying at the Hotel de Lanzi was so very convient. I would definitely stay at the de Lanzi again.
Don't believe all you read !
Tried to book a three night stay in December 2003, two days before travelling !, with sister hotel (based on Tripadvisor reviews) only to be told that hotel was closed, but I could be accomodated in the De' Lanzi. I cheked the reviews and was horrified but I needed an hotel near the centre (one son had a broken leg). So I risked it. I had two rooms a double for my wife and I and a triple for my three sons. None of the horror stories in your other reviews manifested themselves. The rooms were great (304 and 305) with fantastic views over the Duomo. The staff were courteous and helpful, breakfasts were as good as any and the rooms were clean with plenty of hot water. We will stay again.
This is a scam
This hotel is definitely on the expensive side... not to mention that its staff will attempt to take advantage of you. They also ripped me off because I had pre-booked a room for 3 people. When I arrived there, they gave me a room for 2 and said that I would have to pay an extra 89 euros for the 3rd person. However, our rooms were decent although there was an odor from the occupants that smoke in the building.
Hotel De Lanzi...Avoid at all costs
I just stayed here March 31 2002 for two of a four night reservation. I checked out early due to conditions far below our expectations for price ($189.00 per night) and also definately not a 3 star hotel. Some of the disapointments,
-no hot water after 10 am,
-dirty sheets two nights in a row with long black hairs all over the comforter,
-Smelly bed spreads, need to be replaced
-Rooms floors, carpet and walls dirty, carpet or walls have not been replaced or painted for probably 10 years
-Our room was definately in need of renovations
-Staff was unsupportive and disrespectful, The night of April 1st I told them I would be checking out the next morning and they said that would not be possible and I would be responsible for full payment of 4 nights.
Regardless I checked out at 8:30 am April 2nd 2002 and they are still trying to charge me for that night, stating that I checked out late. ( late check out is past noon)
If staying in Florence I recommend Hotel Pierre, a 4 star and same pricing with large rooms and excellent location. Telephone 055 216 218

... games. Drunk Kira made an appearance that night! The next day we explored the city, it had such a great vibe. The streets were beautiful, the people at restaurants weren't as desperate for customers as Rome and the food was amazing! The Duomo was definitely one of the most impressive buildings I've ever seen and the bridge "Ponte Vecchio". I'd definitely recommend Florence! Next stop ...

... idea as it was full of crowds and once more we encountered queues which stopped us from visiting some attractions of interest.
Pleasant enough as it was wandering through the streets of Como, especially away from the main part of the lake where the crowds were congregated, it was a pleasure to return to our quiet little village. We went to Easter Sunday Mass that evening in the village church. The Mass sheets which were provided ...
... cathedral so we thought we'd go check it out. When we arrived, we were told the kitchen was closed so they couldn't seat us. As we were walking away, we saw them seat another group which didn't sit too well with us. Obviously they didn't want our money so we found another restaurant in the square. The restaurant was quite pleasant and there were some buskers playing music nearby for some added ambiance. Amanda had a pesto gnocchi dish and I devoured the spaghetti ...
... even though we were nearly 3 hours early to queue – and had to get another train an hour later) we were going to go for a night out in Florence after meeting two Aussi’s. We ended up at a few bars and meeting loads of people from all over the world. We went as a group with the two Aussi’s, and eventually we met up with this massive group. We had some Canadians, Americans, Australians, New Zealanders as well as more Brits. It ...
