Hotel Calzaiuoli

A room at the Hotel Calzaiuoli, Florence

A cozy, moderate hotel bang in the middle of Florence, on the main street between the Duomo and the Uffizi

As central as you can get, the Calzaiuoli offers comfortable, well-appointed rooms on the main strolling drag halfway between the Uffizi and the Duomo.

The halls' rich runners lead up a pietra serena staircase to the midsize and largish rooms decorated with painted friezes and framed etchings.

Guest rooms have been refurbished with the addition of stylish wood furnishings and mirrored armoires. The firm beds rest on patterned carpets.

The bathrooms range from huge to cramped, but all have and fluffy towels (and a few enjoy Jacuzzis).

Some rooms look over the street, with its pedestrian carnival and some of the associated noise.

The better, quieter rooms open out the back, view views either over the rooftops to the Bargello and Badia towers or up to the Duomo's cupola.
