Review Summary



  • Decor and ambiance of the rooms feels generic and impersonal
  • Rooms get very little natural light, and views are lousy
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Low-quality toiletries
  • Some guest complaints of foul odors
  • Elevators are slow and tiny

Bottom Line

The Hotel Cerretani Firenze is clean, generic upper-mid-level property with 84 rooms, of average size by Florence standards and outfitted in tasteful, contemporary decor. They feature Renaissance art prints and flat-screen TVs, but lower-level rooms can be lacking in natural light. Superior Rooms don't offer much more space than Deluxe Rooms and aren't really worth the upgrade. As at most hotels in Tuscany, there are few amenities: There is no spa, pool, or fitness center. But the hotel is in a central location, within walking distance of most of Florence's major sights.

On a cobblestone street just steps away from the Duomo

Map of Hotel Cerretani Firenze

The Hotel Cerretani Firenze is located on a calm cobblestone street just steps away from the Duomo, offering a quiet locale close to many of the city's main draws. Everything from upscale boutiques to popular public squares is within walking distance.

Florence is extremely pedestrian-friendly, and is one of Italy's most beautiful cities -- it's more compact, and less gritty, than Rome. The Duomo is the most iconic sight here, but other popular attractions include Michelangelo's "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the works of Botticelli and da Vinci at the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, which dates back to the 1300s. The Piazza della Signora is a popular tourist hub, and many hotels are located near it.
