Historical Traveler Reviews Giada Hotel Florence
Hotel Giada was just a short walk from the train station and very convenient to shopping, the Duomo, the Uffizi and more. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff was extremely helpful in guiding us to restaurants and sights nearby. Bathrooms were typical European type; very small but the hot water and water pressure were awesome! Breakfast was nice with cereals, meats, cheeses, rolls and plenty of coffee/tea/OJ.
I would recommend staying here to anyone; especially someone on a budget. Our comfortable room (with AC) was just 100 euro per night.
Hotel Giada full of hospitality!
This hotel was centrally located for all Florence attractions, the San Lorenzo Market is right on its doorstep! This is a modest hotel, with friendly staff, clean rooms, and a nice buffet breakfast. For Florence, this hotel is good value, if just a little noisy if you are on the street side.
Great location and price
Ideally located off the San Lorenzo market square in Florence, this hotel offers a great location for the pedestrian traveler (which is definitely the way to go in Florence, you would not want to try driving here). It's only a 4 minute walk from the train station and the Duomo, and probably only 15 minutes down to the Ponte Vecchio. The room we had was huge, the bathroom small. The buffet breakfast they serve is pretty good, and they have free internet access in the lobby. The only downside is the noise (but read this part carefully). We had a room (29) facing the Street (i.e. overlooking the market). The windows of our room (2 sets) were double glazed and did a remarkable job in shutting out most of the noise apart from setup and shutdown of the market, around 7am and 9pm. Our room was also right next to the breakfast bar, so a few mornings we were woken around 7am by the setting up of breakfast. Lastly, there are the church bells. If you're a light sleeper, I'd suggest these might wake you as well. Overall though, the room was dead quiet from 11 pm to 7 am, and if you want to sleep longer, and don't mind wearing earplugs, I'd highly recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly, and the location was fantastic.
My husband, daughter and I stayed in this hotel in September 2003 and loved it. The room was generously sized, the location was outstanding, the staff friendly, and the breakfast very good. Even better, there is a great street market just outside the entrance--good deals on leather goods, especially. Highly recommend this hotel.
Great budget hotel
It' was simply great!!.. We were traveling by train from France, and when we arrived Florence we were exhausted but we could go to the hotel in a few minutes walking..The people is very very kind, the hotel is small but welcoming, and everything is so clean.The breakfast is basic, but complete, you can wait until lunch-time!.. The best is the location, in front San Lorenzo's Cathedral, 10 min walking to David, 5 min to Duomo, 10 min to Uffizzi, and closer to good restaurants..If you don't want luxury and you are in budget, this people try that you feel like at home.
Exactly what i needed!
After living in Rome for a month and not getting a single night's undisturbed sleep, I decided to take a short last-minute weekend trip to Florence this June. This was the only reasonably priced hotel I could find with any vacancies, so I was kind of dreading my arrival.
However, the staff was very friendly, and the room was extremely clean and quiet. Plus the it was in a great area. Being a single female traveler carrying only a small duffel bag the single room I reserved was very small but wonderful. If I'd have been on a longer trip I don't think that particular room would have been suitable, but from what I saw of others I'm sure something would have worked out. My only complaint was how loud the air conditioner was, but the fan was efficient enough. Overall I had a great experience here and wasn't bothered by pushy Italian staff that wanted to hang out with the pretty American girl like I was everywhere else. And the staff is multi-lingual so communication will most likely not be a problem.
Just returned from Europe. Spent 4 nights at this hotel. Our room was quite big as it was supposed to be for four people (but we were just two) Room 29. As mentioned in the other review, the breakfast was good and the overall price was very good considering the location. Short walk (2-3min) to the train station, duomo (5 min) and shopping areas.
Great food market a few doors down to get fresh, cheap food. They had a free internet connection which was very nice. Very friendly staff and well managed small hotel. Noise wasn't an issue for us despite facing the marketplace.
This is a great hotel, great location with numerous good, economical restaurants close by - try Za-Za's. Very good breakfast. Small eating area, so you have to reserve a time. Tiny elevator - room for only 1 person and 1 bag. Tiny shower, but that's to be expected. Street is a marketplace and very noisy, especially during set-up and tear-down, but when the windows were closed, it was pretty quiet.

... flavours from Creminosa di Cioccolato and 70% cocoa chocolate to forest fruit cheesecake and passion fruit. We sampled a lot of the flavours on parade, and I can confirm that they were all amazing. The children loved it, but when they eat, they both seem to have this extraordinary ability to pour whatever they are eating all over themselves. They can't seem to eat a spoonful of chocolate gelato before it melts, and as a result, both kids end up looking like they'd rolled around in ...
... like it had some amazingness going on in the form of a roasted pig (or the remnants of a roasted pig) resting on a counter. At home, we would call a place like this a delicatessen. In Italy, it’s a salumeria. At Salumeria Il Cencio, Jay and I ordered an out-of-this-world porchetta sandwich made with fresh mozzarella. One of the shopkeepers doted on Giacomo , which seemed to be a recurring ...
My eyes filled with tears as I caught my first glimpse of the Duomo from my plane as we approached the airport in Florence. After all the months of planning, anxiety, and giddy excitement, I am here at last! I found my way to my monastery pensione without incident. I'm quite proud of myself as it involved taking a crowded city bus and walking ...
... the look of. Bryan walked away with a cone of chocolate and chocolate chip, and I tried the peach/amaretto/chocolate (which wasn't any good at all, it turns out) and washed it down with dark chocolate.
We returned to Marcella's and paid our bill. Then I asked to get my picture taken with her, since she has been such a highlight of my visit here in Firenze. :) She bid us a good night by name with the cheek-to-cheek greeting (she teased Bryan about his ...

Time for a siesta... maybe we'll walk in the Oltrarno later...
Sept 24 -- 7:30 pm
Guess I needed a nap -- I slept 2 hours! I think I could have slept right through until tomorrow!
We did indeed go for a walk around Oltrarno (that just means the other side of the Arno, but that's the name of the neighbourhood) We ended up sitting in a park with a ...
