Best for Families - Expert review of Hotel Casci

A cheap-and-cheerful family hotel a hop from the Duomo.

The Casci’s perennial popularity lies in its combination of central location, keen prices and no-nonsense, family-run approach. Opened in 1926 when it was the first hotel in Florence to have hot and cold running water in all the rooms, it occupies two interconnecting 15th-century palazzi, complete with the odd fresco, and offers comfortable two-star accommodation along with a genuinely warm welcome from the enthusiastic Lombardi family. Several larger, multi-bedded rooms means that it’s a good choice for families.

Location: 

The hotels lies a pigeon’s spit north of the Duomo on the busy shop- and café-lined main thoroughfare that links the Duomo and Piazza San Marco. It’s just round the corner from the cheap clothes stalls of the San Lorenzo market and a few doors up from the city’s main tourist office.

Bedrooms: 

The 24 pleasant rooms vary in shape and size but are all done out in a no-frills modern style (including flatscreen TVs and DVD players) and have spanking new bathrooms, some with tubs. Those at the back of the building overlook a lovely garden; the ones at the front overlooking the street are well sound-proofed. There are several quads and two family rooms sleeping five.
