The Bright Eyed Explorer Parione One

Hotel in Florence

What a cute little place to stay. Loved it 

Initially it is hard to find, as there is no signage until you walk into the small foyer. Even then it is confusing. For a while there I thought I was lost but admittedly I was early and the reception area wasn’t yet open. 

The staff here are incredible. Very accommodating and lovely. They couldn’t do enough to make sure I was happy with my stay. 

Located on Via del Parione, there are numerous restaurants, bars and cafes within walking distance. Markets are not too far away either. 

The room itself was beautiful and more than I expected for a small operation in Florence. The bed was super comfortable, the shower impressive and in general, a modern appearance that was both clean and minimalist. Best of all is that it is affordable. 

The only issue that I had, and not a big thing, is the phone ringing constantly at about 1am one morning that I was there. Perhaps some kind of messaging service for after-hours would be a good move to save waking up your guests. 

Would definitely stay again the next time I am in Florence.
