This place looks amazing in pictures, but it was a disappointment in many many areas. We were amazed at the inability to walk in our room (not enough space for two people). We've traveled all over Europe and don't expect gigantic rooms, but this was almost comical. Truly--it was tiny. The pictures don't show that. We actually had to leave... More

We were a bit concerned about this hotel after reading other reviews about this hotel but our experience of this hotel was fine. As per other reviewers, we walked from the Florence train station (in the rain) and what would have been a 5 minute walk turned into an hour walk as we couldn't find the hotel due to really... More

This is only a three star hotel, but we had an executive room. Comfortable and clean, friendly staff. An easy enough walk from the main train station, albeit lugging cases over cobblestone, but that is Florence. The room was quiet. The hotel is situation right on an edge of a bustling square. The location is great. We walked everywhere, including... More

we were on our honeymoon and chose this hotel due to its close proximity to SM novella train station. the room is small but very clean and well kept! we didnt mind the limited space since we traveled really light and didnt have much luggage. everything looked new and we loved the interiors and the homey feel of the hotel!...

Good location on Santa Maria novella piazza and very close to train station. Recently refurbished and very clean, The reason I gave them only 3 out of 5 was that sadly the internet rarely worked over the three days and when it did only on one device. Also the staff did not engage the guests in conversation they were not... More

Nice short level walk from the train station which is great if you are travelling with luggage! Watch out as there is no sign for the hotel- look for number 23 between the 3 restaurants! Great location near to all the main attractions and fairly quite as its located on the Santa Maria Novella square. Had a room facing the... More

Short walk to Hotel from train station. Look out for number 23 on the building as no signage outside. Good sized room, very clean. Has a very small shower cubicle, elbows hitting the wall when washing your hair. Beautiful breakfast. Perfect location in the Piazza Santa Novella. Close to all the major sights. Would recommend it highly.

Our experience did not start out great as I received an e-mail from the hotel stating our credit card failed. I called and gave them another card. I got another e-mail saying that one failed. Worried, I spent an hour of my time plus 10 Euros making international calls trying to find out the problem. There was NOTHING wrong with... More
