The one-star Hotel Giappone is a small, quiet property perched above a busy shopping street between the train station and Duomo. A friendly, no-frills spot, it’s a good pick for those looking for a great value—and willing to make the arduous climb up the four-floor spiral staircase.

The Giappone’s eight rooms sport colorful walls with bedding to match. Their furnishings are simple and sturdy, and most have desks facing tall windows, for ample viewing of the surrounding rooftops and the shoppers below. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, television and free Wi-Fi.

Some rooms have private bathrooms, while other (cheaper) rooms have sinks and showers, but share a toilet down the hall. Those traveling with family and friends should note that corner in-room facilities are not cordoned off (and shower doors are clear glass).

The building itself is historic and beautiful, and an outdoor landing at the hotel’s fourth-floor entrance is a great place to catch your breath after the long trek upstairs.

About the Hotel Giappone neighborhood

You can't miss Brunelleschi's magnificent dome atop the rosy marble Cathedral. It's the obvious central meeting point in Florence and the tourist hub of the city. Here, you're in the vicinity of practically everything: the Uffizi Museums, Palazzo della Signoria, the San Lorenzo Market and the Accademia. The big guns in Italian fashion are located along Via Tornabuoni and there are plenty of cafes and dining options.
