    The position is excellent and the staff is very friendly

    The hotel defintely needs to be renewed.

    Near the Fortezza basso and S.M.n station.

    There are a lot of mosquitoes.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent location. Appropriate price.

    There is only one remote control for the air conditioner for the whole hotel and any time we wanted to switch it on or off we should ask the assistance of the staff. It was rather hot but we could not use air conditioner during night and also could not open window because of the street noise. Remote control of TV didn't work properly. The staff was not always very polite.

    Very close to station...

    When we checked in, the guy was very pleasant..and when we checked out, the guy had such an arrogant expression that we felt we were unwanted!

    A little road noise but you get that being based in such a good location

    The first impression at hotel lobby. very warm.

    relatively slow handling ability

    The hotel is on the 4th floor of a large city building but luckily it has an elevator. My room was very clean and cared for, although I had a shared bath down the hall which was also clean and a sink/faucet in my room. I've stayed in many hotels with private bath in Florence and this one was very clean by those standards. I would stay again. An old television but in a great city, who needs one. Breakfast was not included.

    The only unfortunate thing is the street noise. Everything wakes up at 3am. But there are rooms on the other side of the building. With the air conditioner in the room, I think you wouldn't hear it in the summer.

    The hotel is very cozy, I spent a nice stay there. I also found a nice Chinese restaurant on the corner. What a marvellous roof terrace, don't miss it!

    My room was very neat and tidy, the location is ok because the hotel is in the city center, near the train station. There is also free WIFI in a square nearby.

    Wonderful hotel. The location is perfect: only few steps from the train station. The staff is warm and helpful.

  • Group of friends

    We were located right around the corner from the train station and only a five minute walk from the Duomo. The beds were comfortable and we got our own bathroom even though we were supposed to have shared. Even though we only stayed 2 nights our room was cleaned during the day that we were out and about.

    During the day our room got very cold, and the staff was unable to turn the heat on until 6 P.M. It was okay since we were mostly out doing stuff during the day, but it was hard to take an afternoon nap in the cold. Also, despite 3 layers of wood/glass/wood, our window kept out absolutely no sound from the street 4 stories below. Construction was going on directly across from us and we were right above a bus stop, so it was difficult both to go to sleep at night and to stay asleep early in the morning.

    I spent a very good stay at Hotel Bijou: it's very cozy and clean. Don't miss the roof terrace, you can enjoy a marvellous view from there.

  • Single

    The room was very cosy and the hotel staff was very helpful. The hotel has a lucky position because it's located nearby the central train station.

  • Single

    This hotel is very cozy and spacious: I appreciated the cleanliness of the hotel and the politeness of the staff. Also, it's very close to the central train station; do not miss the roof terrace (there is a nice view).
