Area description
The Hotel Gioia is located in the heart of the historic city, in one of the most convenient locations of any Florence hotel for visiting the old town center on foot. Just 5 minutes from the Duomo and the Baptistery, 10 from Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, it overlooks historic Via Cavour, called Via Larga during the Renaissance when Florence's nobles and merchants choose it as the privileged site for building their sumptuous residences. Even today, you can see buildings from the 15th and 16th centuries, including the splendid Palazzo Medici-Riccardi. The royal palace of Lorenzo the Magnificent and the prototype for the Renaissance's civil architecture of austere aristocratic volumes, it is the jewel box that holds the precious frescoes of the Chapel of the Magi whose fabulous procession contains portraits of the Medici: the atmosphere of enchantment is exalted by a riot of color enhanced by the glitter of lapis lazuli and gold.

Bad but not the worst

I understand that given what I paid I should not expect much, but there are still things that are way below my expectations. Dirty room with weird smell. Opened the wardrobe once for a second then shut the door and never touched it again. The bed sheet is not even large enough to cover the whole bed. My feet stays in touch with the mattress the whole night. Stains here and there. Right besides a noisy street and you can hear everything on the street.

Surprised

The hotel may be typical of hotels in Florence, but the room was rather small. Complimentary breakfast in the continental style, was adequate. Climbing the stairs was good exercise . Any more than 2 in the left meant a reduction in oxygen..

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for lots of walking. Keep an eye out for motorists, they obviously have no regard whatever for pedestrians
