    Everything--- noisy , over booked and the staff had no personality.

    Personnell was helpful and friednly. Breakfast was good. Location was suitable for us. No complaints about the room and bathroom either.

    Street noise early in the morning was the only minor minus.

    We were both more than satisfied with the Hotel Carolus, the staff were most attentive, the bedroom capacious and well appointed. It is within walking distance of many attractions, though for the more elderly, over seventies, a taxi is necessary to get to say the Pomte Vecchio or Uffizi (if you do not know how to use the buses... The room was well soundproofed adainst the traffic.

    Just one complaint. We did not sleep too well as the mattrass was as hard as planks. No thanks.. The hardest that we have both ever had the misfortune to encounter !!!

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, the accomodations were excellent value, and I enjoyed my stay at Carolus.

    I have no complaints regarding my stay.

    We arrived on an overnight train at the Florence SMN train station at 6 am and the hotel 1/2 hour later. As early as it was, the hotel did not have any available rooms. We returned to the hotel around 11 am after touring the city and learned that we could use the internet in the rooms on the main floor without charge! A short while later, the concierge, Andres, who we befriended while we waited, helped get us in to the room early. We were so grateful because we were tired and travel weary. And the fact that we did not need to wait until 2 pm, was a great relief. The included breakfast was plentiful early but don't arrive too late as your choices become more simplified!

  • Couple
    3.8

    Absolutely terrible from any point of point of view. Simply cannot believed it is said to be a 4*, it is a 2* at best. We bought one night in this hotel only because we wanted to extend our stay in Florence and the hotel we had been staying at had no more rooms [another 4* in the same area, much much better and cheaper]. Outrageous that you'd pay 180 euro for such a hotel. Stay away!

  • Single
    7.0

    Friendly and helping staff.

    Rather noisy, even though I've changed the room. Limited services and breakfast offer for my experience of 4 stars hotels.

  • Couple

    All the staff was great..so kind!!it's in the real city centre!

    It was expected to be a bit more because of the 4stars!
