Hotel San Giovanni
Great time in Toscana
We stayed at the Hotel San Giovanni and used it as a base to sight see around Tuscany It was the perfect choice and three flight of stairs and dodgy WIFI apart really couldnt be faulted it is situated a stones throw from the main sights of Florence and is always bustling with life, wth a great selection of Bars and Cafes on the doorstep (Barone just aroud the corner being a fave of ours!!!) the only fault i can find with the rooms was the fact that it is used as a stop off for one night or short stays and people can be very inconsidrate when enrteing and moving around within the annex the communal kitchen area is great but not for rattling pots and pans or for sitting around having a small party as the four bedrooms that open onto this area get the full blast of any noise also one or two poeple during the week thought it ok to use this facility but not wash up after themselves that apart the staff and facilties of the San Giovanni are excellent

Give it a miss
The room was old, tiny, smelly and dirty and didn't look like the pictures - There's many other places of similar price, take one of these

Well, what can I say. Amazing location, lovely little hotel. Not the easiest to find but the staff were helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel San Giovanni
Very Good8.0
Central, charming, true Florence.
Due to renovations on the front of the building, through no fault of San Giovannis own, it made a little difficult to find initially as the hotel sign was obscured by scaffolding. The room itself was very spacious, very authentic Florence-beautiful! And clean. The hotel host was helpful with local knowledge and directions and happy to attend to any queries I had. The room itself came without an ensuite bathroom but I was given my own private bathroom across the hall, which was clean, private and very Italiano. This is a charming hotel, typical of Italy. If you want a real taste of Italy this is absolutely perfect. If you are high maintenance and want mod cons, a 5* big city hotel is your best bet. But to experience true Italia, the native rustic furnishings and hospitality and right in the centre of Florence, with the Duomos an easy landmark to make your way back, it is perfect.
