Hotel Bijou Reviews

acceptable quality and extremely close to train station (fifteen minute walk), which was fantastic. Breakfast costs extra. Most, but not all, desk personnel speak English. Clean room with room AC. I opened the windows (I prefer air to AC), but no screens so the mosquitos got me. Internet email works, but is extremely primitive and costs (a little) extra. They allowed me to leave luggage at the hotel after I checked out so I could tour the town for a few hours before leaving Florence on the train. All in all, Bijou worked out fine for me, though younger travelers might prefer a place with more atmosphere.

This hotel is a nice place to stay, especially if you don't speak much Italian. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and for an extra 5 euros there is breakfast croissants, tea, coffee, cereal, etc. It's a block from the station, and there is an elevator, so there's no stair climbing (which is good for elderly or the very young). The staff are friendly and helpful. They will also let you leave your bags in reception after you have checked out, if you want to sight-see and are catching a late train, etc. This hotel made for a nicer and friendlier trip for us than we had been previously having.


Hotel Bijou Reviews from the Web

Pretty much what we expected given the low price. Room is super clean and very nice.

The bathrooms are a bit dirty, probably because they are shared between many people.

From what we could gather the terrace on the roof is not accessible.

There is no 24h reception so you have to let yourself in at night.

Staff does not really speak English so make sure you travel with an Italian friend.


The staff are prickly and seemed annoyed whenever I asked questions. Right by the train station and about a 10-15 min walk to the duomo. The room was clean but the door lock was shabby and no security on site overnight. Loud street right below. I wore earplugs and this didnt bother me. The stay was fine, but I wouldnt stay here again.


Very nice location, nice room not very clean bathroom.


Clean, friendly, great location, close to main train station. Good value for money.


The only good thing about this hotel is the location. The people behind the desk are unfriendly. The room we had was cold and very noisy with the busses that parked outside. We payed 85 for a double room with shower and toilet without breakfast.Expensive for what you get.


Good place!


Good location and very confortable!


I was really impressed with how nice this hostel was for the amount that we paid for it! I would highly recommend it and the one next to it for anyone staying in florence


Good place. One point:they should fix the bathroom's door so that people don't have to slam it to close it as it makes useless

noise .


Very good attention to hosts. Nice space and atmosphere. I would come back.


Great location and price.

For this price it's a good place to just sleep over. Conditions are very basic and clean. Bijou worked fine for us, extremely close to the train station and the center.


Really nice room!


Great location and price with big rooms and nice bathrooms and AC!!!


Acceptable quality and extremely close to the train station (5 minute walk). Breakfast costs extra. Some employees, though not all, speak English. My room was great, except that it had shutters, but no screens (mosquitos) -- but did have room AC. bijou worked fine for me.
