The hotel owner is very polite. Also the room is clean and cozy. We have just stayed here to celebrate our 19th anniversary & it was in the perfect location. It is located in the center of everything. It is just 3 minutes walk to the the train station, close to the duomo, uffizi gallery, ponte vecchio and all the...

My fiancée and I stayed 3 nights in this nice hotel. The hotel is an old palace that is spacious inside. It is clean, friendly, comfy and incredible value for money. From the hotel terrace you can see the main sights of Florence. It is located the historical part of town. The hotel staff recommended some restaurants nearby; we tried...

We appreciated this hotel so tuscan and nice: we could describe it as a 3 "C" hotel, i.e. Cheap, Comfortable and Central. We had a very quiet room overlooking the courtyard and could open the windows all the time. The hotel is in walking distance to the city center and all the main museums, close to everything. Service was ok,...

We stayed at Hotel Bijou for five nights in late Oct 2013. Very nice, worth every euro! Our spacious room was equipped with a large balcony too. Staff service was perfect. Breakfast was excellent, the buffet table was full of cakes, biscuits, croissants, juices and so on. Also, you can have your breakfast on the rooftop: you can enjoy the...

What a cozy hotel! The rooms are spacious and large, and the bathrooms are very clean. The location is perfect, in downtown at a short distance from the main train station. Also, the room price was cheap: a very good deal for us. But most of all it's about the roof terrace: from the rooftop you can enjoy an amazing...

We spent 4 nights very happily at the Hotel Bijou. The room was very large, cozy and had a lovely balcony overlooking a courtyard. We also liked the location -- close enough to everything (train station, stores, museums, monuments). The restaurants and trattorias in the area are very good. The rooftop terrace is a must. The building is ancient, and...

First, a real clarification is necessary against your slanderous and defamatory comments: you have never arrived at the Hotel Bijou, we have never seen your faces. You have invented this false, absurd and ridiculous story by defaming us on this website only not to pay the penalty; in fact, you have booked through Venere / Expedia, and you know very...

The Hotel Bijou is a great choice for people arriving by train (it's around the corner from the main station) or seeking a quiet spot away from the city's crowds. We had a triple room -- clean, quiet, well-maintained -- which became our sanctuary after a long day of sightseeing and I don't think we walked into the hotel once...

Nice hotel in an excellent location in Florence. Wonderful staff who are very polite, helpful and warm. Our room was very spacious, with a balcony overlooking a little courtyard (no noise in downtown! Absolutely fantastic!), so we could sleep very well. Breakfast is very good and served in a marvellous room.
