My daughter and I had an amazing time in Florence and the hotel was perfect for us. The staff were very welcoming and the hotel was beautifully decorated and clean. As for location, we couldn't have picked a better one! All of the main attractions were within easy walking distance and we managed to take the train to Pisa to visit the Leaning Tower, too. The breakfast buffet was tasty and you have lovely views over the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Travelling whilst there is a pandemic is a personal choice but please be reassured that this hotel adheres to safety and cleanliness and we give it five stars! Thank you, Hotel L'Orologio for a wonderful and memorable stay!

Perfect location. It???s entrance looks at Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is just 5 minutes walking distance away from Firenze SMN Station, Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore and 10 minutes from Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio.
The hotel is very classy. It has a format about time and the clock/watch stuff is everywhere. The rooms are decorated authentically. There are speakers and a controller on the wall so you can choose which music you wanna listen from various channels such as jazz, classical and pop etc. The rooms are clean and comfortable as well.
The breakfast is enough for a 4 star hotel. I liked their cheese types, especially the truffle cheese was my favourite. Sesame bread was good as well.
