Exceptional 10.0
Amazing location for great price!
Perfect location right next to the Duomo, very close to train station, short walk to see the Uffizi and Accademia galleries. Amazing breakfast 2 minutes away at Cafe 50 Rosso. Note that you will need to climb 2 flights of stairs with no elevator to get to your room, and rooms had private shower but shared toilet in a bathroom down the hall. These weren't issues for me, and all facilities were very clean and worked perfectly (wifi included)! I would choose Hotel Giappone again if I go back to Florence.

Amazing Florence
I've had amazing time in Florence ! I will go back, surely. The location of the hotel is perfect, just around the corner of the cathedral. The room was okay, the staff was very nice, helpful - especially Vincenzina . Thank you very much for everything !

Very good 8.0
It was a place to put my bag while I went sight seeing. The bed was uncomfortable. Service was nice I got confused with the language barrier. I'd stay there again as it's in a good location.

My stay at Hotel Giappone was just what I needed - the location in Florence can’t be beat. Yes, there is no elevator, and it’s not the flashiest of accommodations, but if you’re looking for a clean, budget-friendly place to stay, I recommend. The service was excellent - they waited for my late arrival and came after-hours to help me when I couldn’t open the outside door. Only issue was the WiFi could be a bit spotty.

Very helpful staff
Owner is very helpful and always available by phone or the buzzer. Room was cleaned daily and everything worked, especially wifi. Extra blankets were useful during the chilly nights. Room looks a little dated but everything was safe and sufficient for us to go out and see the sights!
