From the moment we checked in we loved this boutique hotel. We picked it because we have a love affair with watches (me Cartier and my partner Rolex), however this was only a small part of the sophisticated romantic elegance of this hotel. Being an Australian/American couple I hate to say but our expertise on local wine and the Italian... More

Very good location for sightseeing and cross to SMN. I enjoyed breakfast buffet at the restaurant on top floor with wonderful view of historical Firenze city and fragrant espresso. I met some Japanese couples.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night in August. The decor was bright, clean, and modern, and our room was wonderful, with a great view of the piazza. I especially liked the bathroom, with its marble floors and nice bathtub. The staff were extremely helpful and the location (the hotel is situated right off a popular piazza, but... More

Great location- you can walk to many attractions. The hotel was lovely- my favorite out of 4 different hotels in Italy because it was very clean and new. The bed was hard, but every bed at every hotel was hard.
