Giada Hotel Florence Reviews
We got what we paid for Nov 04, 2008
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Giada in Florence for 4 nights from 10/8/08 – 10/12/08. To sum it up… we got what we paid for. We bought our stay through hotels.com for $123 a night with all fees and taxes. That’s a cheaper hotel in Florence. Be careful most hotels don’t have a private bathroom. Our room did have a private bathroom.
What we liked:
•FREE Internet on the 3rd floor from approx. 10am – 11am
•Breakfast included in price (no fruit though)
•Large room for Europe
•Friendly/Helpful receptionist that spoke pretty good English.
•Extra pillows and blankets in the cabinet
•Close to Duomo and Piazza Della Signoria
•Hotel doors never lock. You can get in with your key at anytime.
•Has a lift
•Can use the microwave if need
What we didn’t like:
•Incredibly NOISY. The windows were single paned and kept no sound or cool air out. The hotel is located on the street of the Lorenzo Market so there is tons of noise starting at 4:00am in the morning when they roll out the stations to 2:00am in the morning when everyone finally goes home from hanging out. I think the rooms on the South & East sides of the hotel are the noisiest.
•Dirty tile floors and God knows what else.
•Never changed our sheets or towels
•Uncomfortable hard beds.
•TV was old and didn’t always work. Only English channel was MTV
•Inside an Old building
•Very small stall shower
•Not a pretty area
•Reception was only open from 11am – 7pm
•No soap dish, shelf or towel rack in the bathroom
•Could smell people smoking in other parts of the hotel
