    I had stayed here once before. It is in a great location. It is a fairly typical small European hotel. Small rooms and a very small elevator.

    My first time in Italy. Rooms were clean but smaller than I was used to having. Great location for seeing Florence.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti Florence

    Good location, but noisy

    from

    Overall we had a nice stay at the hotel. The room and bathroom(small) were clean and well kept. The staff attitude was mixed but overall ok. The location was excellent and you can walk to everything. The breakfast was very good and we had some great cappucinos.

    The only major complaint is the noise if you have a room facing the piazza. As wonderful as it is for the historical value, listening to people screaming and talking and the motor traffic that cuts through the piazza at all hours. And the fact that the city decided to clean the sewer line at 6am one morning was not the most pleasant experience.So, Make sure to ask for a room towards the back.

    Overall a nice stay, and we would stay again, just not facing the piazza.

    Beautiful hotel!

    from

    We had a huge, beautiful family suite with a lovely bathroom at the Loggiato dei Serviti. It was spotless, with lovely furniture, rugs, and comfortable beds. Our rooms faced the incredibly historic square, which made it a bit noisy, but the bells that rang at 7 a.m. every morning were kind of fun! We were a bit concerned about the few homeless (but harmless) people that seemed to camp out on the loggiato -- However, the hotel was part of an old monestery and, as far as we could tell, the monks still use a portion of the building and apparently are still providing for the poor. Thus, it is part of the history of the building. We certainly felt safe and found it to be a beautiful and extremely comfortable and convenient hotel. A.H., Bethesda, MD

    Overpriced for What You Get

    from

    We stayed there for 4 nights in Sept. 2004. The common areas of the build were nice with a flair of old Florence, but our room was another story. The room was furnished with what they called 'antiques', but in actuality were weathered pieces of furniture. The rug in the room had holes from where it had been worn through. The bathroom was small with the shower over the stall, if you can picture it. The location was excellent and convenient, and I had no complaints about it. Also, the staff was not the most courteous and receptive to problems or complaints. We complained about a foul smell in our room on 2 occasions and the attitude was "well... what do you us to do..", rather than explain the issue with the old sewer systems, which we finally learned about from one of the maids. Overall, the hotel is not worth the money you pay. If there rates go down by half, then yes. We stopped by another hotel one block away and it was $90+ less, and it was cleaner and just as convenient.

    So much promise...

    from

    We traveled to Florence with another party. The other party received a room that was well appointed and had the charming characteristics described in the hotel's brochure--exposed beams on the ceiling, artwork on the walls, rug on the floor, armoire, etc. Our room was like a cell--stark. It was roomy and was okay, but for the same rate, we got no artwork on the walls, no rug on the floor, and our inoperable windows faced an interior rectangle that looked directly into another opposite window that was the hallway. So we could never have our blinds raised.

    Having said that, the staff were nice and the breakfast room was large.

    The square out front had some unsavory characters in it and I was surprised that the hotel didn't do more to keep the vagrants away. We were verbally accosted walking by the group that seemed to congregate to drink and pass out on the steps.

    I would have given this hotel a higher rating, but the room and the square did detract from it for me. It was nicely located near the Duomo and Accademia. I am sure that our travel companions would give it a higher rating because thier room was nicer and actually looked out onto something.

    Sleeping with Da Vinci

    from

    The Loggiato dei Serviti is a grand, well-preserved and beautifully decorated hotel. While we were there, CNN ran a piece on the hotel, saying that Da Vinci may have been staying there when he met the model for Mona Lisa. (I wonder if he had as much trouble with parking as we did.) The clerk at the front desk provided invaluable information about local sights, parking options, etc. The only downside was the embarrassingly squeaky bed.

    The only Place I'll stay in FLorence

    from

    The Loggiato dei Serviti is one of my favorite hotels. It is simple, but I prefer a less opulent decor. The staff is wonderful and bends over backwards to make you feel comfortable and taken care of. The location is perfect. I alway get a great rate.

    Wonderful location, timeless grace

    from

    I first stayed here in 1988 and will not stay anywhere else in Florence. It quietly takes you back to 14th century Italy. The location close to Duomo and San Marco musem is an extra plus.

    Book directly by telephone and request best available room.

    Old and overpriced.

    from

    Overpriced and overrated. Rooms vary a lot...ours had narrow uncomfortable beds.

    A trip in time

    from

    What better way to see Florence than in a beautiful small hotel on a square, just minutes from the Duomo? The hotel is stunning and our room overlooked the courtyard. Absolutely wonderful! This is a place for people who enjoy staying in historic properties that have not been Disneyfied beyond recognition. The service was superb; the whole experience magical.

    Can't wait to return

    from

    We loved this hotel - and 4 years after our stay - it remains one of our favorites. Intimate and elegant on a quite but very well located square. Beautiful rooms & baths, very gracious service. We have an opportunity to return this year for a night, and even our children (now 10 & 15) remember it fondly and look forward to another visit.

We should have really learned by now that we can't walk on certain sides or else we'll bump into each other. We went back towards the area of Il Duomo and used the public "Water Closet/Chamber." We walked around some more and went into a leather shop, where I got a really pretty hot pink change purse. Then we found a restaurant to have dinner at, ...

    So we spent today in Florence. . . . its full of museums and history . . . we didnt see a whole lot of the museums. The kids are pretty spent on places they cant run, skip or have to be really quiet for a long time. So we got to Florence, and walked through the town, stopping at the Duomo, and baptistry across the street. (see pics) We saw the Ponte Vechio, the well known bridge that is lined ...

    Fondness for Florence

    ... offer, it just absorbs you up like a sponge. Yeah, I would say Florence has certainly done that. It's going to be a very bittersweet departure next week, but for right now, I'm going to try to live it up to the fullest.

    I added some pictures I've taken of Florence over the past couple weeks just so you can get a feel for what Florence is all about.

    I'll be in the sinking city of Venice for the weekend and I promise lots of pictures upon my return! :)

    ... Today's itinerary consisted of a visit to the Accademia Gallery and Mercato Centrale.  Thanks to timing, the museum was roomy, not overwhelmingly crowded.  We shared an audio tour that really helped me create a solid foundation for understanding the Reinassance art movement. My favorite line from the recording was, Florentines believed only by studying themselves could one become a great artist.  I guess that's one way to start a movement!  Seeing David in person was awe-inspiring, ...
