My wife and I had never travelled outside the US, and our first trip was to Italy - we looked all over and chose Relais Cavalcanti based on a number of things including location, value, and quality. We could not have been happier - Anna and Francesca, the sister/co-owners of the hotel were just fantastic. They helped us with museum...

Stayed at Relais Cavalcanti the last week of March 2007 for 3 nights and am very happy with this choice. We didnt actually have reservations, but luckily when I called from the train station, there were rooms available. The best thing about it is the location, it is right smack in the center of Florence, and you can easily reach...

We stayed January 7-10 2007. The smell mentioned below was gone. I think we were the only guests two nights. Free WiFi! Your room will have a tiny fridge, and there is a tiny grocery in the street behind it. The breakfast room could benefit from a fridge and a microwave, but I think they're trying to avoid the mess...

Very friendly and honest staff. Clean hotel is located in the heart of Florence, walking distance to everything! We were upgraded for free to a suite, and the private bathroom in this suite was the largest one we had throughout our entire stay in Italy (bigger than my bathroom at home!). Hotel has a shared kitchen, and while it doesn't...

Our stay at Relais Cavalcanti couldn't have been any better! We had a room that was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated with botanical prints, painted armoire, desk, comfortable bed, along with an enormous bathroom that was also beautiful with marble and tile. The location was perfect, just around the corner from the Mercato Nuovo, in the heart of the city,...

Spent a week at the Relais Cavalcanti and the whole experience in Florence was magical. What a great city! This guest house couldn't be in a more convenient location, you're right next door to everything. Just bear in mind this is not a hotel. You just rent a nice, clean room with a bathroom. I personally don't care for room...

Staying at the Relais Cavalcanti is like having your own apartment a short walk away from the Piazza Della Signoria, and the Ponte Vechio. You get a set of keys that get you into the building and into your room. Tea, Coffee and Cakes are provided throughout the day for a perfect midafternoon break from touring the Uffizi. The only...

In October 2006 my husband and myself stayed in Florence in the most wonderful Relais Cavalcanti. When we arrived, an english couple were leaving and they told us that Relais Cavalcanti was the best place to stay in Florence. At first we were a little doubious as there was a flight of stairs before the lift and also numerous keys...

Relais Cavalcanti is a great place to stay in Florence. The location is truly excellent! The train station is very close as are all of the major sites. Francesca was very nice and extremely helpful. Our room was really nice and a very good size. It was a bit noisy (only on the weekend) because of the Irish Pub below...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
