Overseas travels do not stay at Hotel Camilia
I would not recommend Hotel Camilia to any overseas traveler. Hotel Camilia should have done the right thing. They not only would have had my business (which they did bc the charged me) for next year, I most likely would have stayed longer. My husband and I planned our trip to Italy for our 20th wedding anniversary. Like most people we haven’t been away since our wedding. Therefore you can imagine we were looking forward to our trip to Italy. We live in New York and as the world is aware we are in the middle of a pandemic. Italy has restricted travelers from the United States. Hotel Camilia is the ONLY hotel I booked that would not refund our money. They offered us a voucher for 6 months. Again we are in a pandemic! I asked them to at least extend the voucher for a year. My husband and I are planning to make this trip next summer. has worked tirelessly in our behave to not only get a refund but also to extend the voucher for a year. We have placed at a minimum of 4 phone calls to the hotel. They haven’t budged bc I chose a no refundable room. I do understand that this is their sticking point;however, they are the ONLY hotel that has not refunded my money. That’s bad business considering we are not allowed to enter Italy and I would have planned to extend my stay at their hotel next summer. I am reiterating do not stay at this hotel if you are an overseas traveler.

This was our first trip to Italy. We absolutely loved Hotel Calimala. It was the perfect location. We could walk to everything including the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The rooms were very clean and the bathroom soaps were very nice and smelled so good. I would only note that if you are sensitive to noise I would not choose the balcony room on the street. We were never bothered by the noise and enjoyed opening the balcony doors and looking outside especially at the artists painting on the streets every day. I only point the noise out for someone who prefers quiet because it can be a little loud in the morning and late at night. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a nice place to stay.

This is an incredible find! Run to book it. No hesitations. The room was large (enough). The bed was comfortable. The view from all the large windows was postcard spectacular. The staff was super friendly. Everything is new and clean. And above all the location really can’t be beat. You are right at the center of everything. Less than a minute walk. Can’t recommend this place with enough superlatives.

MUST STAY! Look no further!!
Our heat broke one night, and the front desk girls (who were soooo sweet and responsive) helped us get a new room for our next 2 nights. They comped us breakfast and gave us an extra blanket for the first night of the hotel) Every morning they smiled and greeted us warmly. I have literally never had such an amazing stay at a hotel, and they blew my expectations away. Angela also helped us with some personal booking items, and I am so thankful for her help! Smart TV was AWESOME -- we watched Netflix after tired days sightseeing. The room itself looks like a 5 star hotel -- Marble rooms, bathrooms, and gorgeous decor. They give you free drinks and sbacks when you check in, and 2 free drinks at their bar. The breakfast is also delicious -- I would literally go to Florence again just to stay here!
