4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The reception service was really friendly and allowed late check-in as well as offering to hold our bags when we checked-out since we had a night flight back to London and wanted to still explore. We had a double room which was cleaned everyday and a decent sized bathroom, not pokey at all considering other places I have stayed at... More

The hotel is walking distance to everything which is awesome! Great room very spacious! Heaps of room to put your suitcases. Bathroom was find except a small shower. The staff were pleasant and nice. Breakfast which was good. They did have wifi but you had to pay for it. This hotel was the hotel one we'd been to in Italy... More

Rooms are so much bigger than expected, esp compared to the general small room sizes in Europe. Located not even 5 minutes walk from the train station. Easy to walk with suit cases. It's in a beautiful piazza and right in the middle of everything in Florence. Breakfast was great. Large selection and really yummy and fresh. Staff were helpful... More

My wife and I have just spent 3 nights in this motel during our recent visit to Florence, the staff were very helpful and accommodating, the location is great just a short walk from the train station and close to restaurants and within walking distances to the river and some of the attractions. The rooms are TINY, the shower cubical... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. We were both able to leave our suitcases open and wander about the room. The bathroom was a decent size, although the shower is quite small and you have to shuffle in-between the sink and the toilet to get in to it. Breakfast was included,... More

My new husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. The location is ideal as we travelled by train and it is only a 5 minute walk from the station. All of the major tourist attractions are within 5-10 mintues walk and the majority of the city can be reached by foot. The reception staff were all... More

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!...
