    We chose Hotel Carolus because the location was close to my daughter who was studying in Florence. The staff was wonderful and couldn't do enough to please us. Breakfast was very good. The cappuccino was to die for! The servers always had a kind word and a smile- a great way to start the day! The rooms were clean. We had a wonderful view of the Duomo which was lit up at night. The beds were hard, but from what I hear that is pretty standard in Europe. Everything was within walking distance from the hotel. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend Hotel Carolus to other travelers.

    European hand held shower in room 306.

    Very good

    While it is not in the centre of florence, it is in walking distance of almost everything, specially the David and Piazza della Signoria. Friendly staff and a nicely decorated room.

    Bed were very hard and we didnt sleep well because of this. Wifi didint work our first night, but was later fixed in the next days.

    Good location you can reach all sight-seeing by walk and not far from train station, friendly staff, clean. All you need is in room.

    Poor breakfast but it is typical for Italy

    Very good

    Everything well, nothing outstanding. Good breakfast, good assistance from the lady at the desk to get next reservations in Tuscany.

    Internet access, weak wireless in the room, needed to go to the main hall to connect.

    The location is excellent. It's close to almost all the famous places such the Uffizi, Palazzo Strozzi, Palazzo de Medici, Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and La Galleria de Accademia (Michaelangelo's David).

    We received a free bottle of chilled wine on the second evening, I thought it had been sent to the wrong room but it was for us. A really nice touch.

    Good

    Hotel's location is convenient, its about a ten minute walk from the Firenze station, and also comfortable walking distance to all the popular tourist sites, and there are several restaurants and shops around the area. The receptionist was helpful with information about getting around Florence, and also the free wi fi was useful.

    The room decor is a bit old fashioned, could be modernised a bit. The room we were given was supposed to be a non smoking room, but smelt of cigarette smoke when we entered. They responded well to this complaint and assigned us to another room that did not have this problem.

    Fabulous

    Location of the hotel, size of the room, reasonable price.

    Hotel needs to add facial tissues to bathroom. Soap and shampoo could be of higher quality. Croissants at breakfasts need to be fresh or replaced by fresh bread.

    The staff are fantastic. Every single one of them couldn't do enough to help.

    There is a parking service. I noticed after leaving the hotel that one of my wheels had been scraped and they never came forth to tell me. "They" being the contracted parking staff.
