Just got back from Florence and stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms were beautiful...ours had a terrace and overlooked the pool. We had a beautiful view of the full moon. The staff was excellent...gladly answered all our questions and helped us with numerous questions. Their restaurant recommendations were excellent!

We stayed here for a week; enjoyed it tremendously. Room was very comfortable, spacious, excellent bathroom and a/c worked very well. Free breakfast every morning in outdoor area was lovely. The concierge & hotel manager were attentive. About a 15 minute walk from the center of the city but very close to the River and the bridges. It was quite... More

This spot was recommended by a friend and we really enjoyed our stay. Rooms are very comfortable and the service solid. Poolside service was spotty at times. Lobby service and concierge service were very good. It was a 20 minute walk to the center of Florence but only 2-3 minutes from the Arno River.

This was our second visit to the hotel so we knew the quiet rooms are at the back overlooking a convent garden. The rooms at the front face the road and the majority have balconies and overlook the garden and pool area. There is very big open area in front of the hotel which is unusual for the city and...

We are world travelers and stay at very nice hotels. This is not a 5 star hotel more like 3 stars. It is a bit run down, spots in room carpets, plastic tub with gobs of white caulking, marks on the walls. The fit and finish are 3 star level. Uncomfortable beds, poor quality towels, pillow, etc. Not 5 star... More

I was not familiar with this hotel (my sister booked it for us) but was pleasantly surprised by the nice room, large bathroom and balcony. My sister's room was next door (same type/price) but was overall smaller though it had a huge balcony. The staff was friendly, professional and always helpful and courteous. The pool was a wonderful bonus as... More

Pros: beautiful lobby, garden, and a pool area; the restaurant is a pleasant setting for breakfast, and breakfast is pretty good. Cons: though the pool is nice to look at, it is not clean, and I wouldn't swim in it; our room was desperately in need of updating/renovations; room had a musty smell and windows didn't open; old tired carpeting,...

We stayed here for two nights and could not have been happier. It helped that we received a complementary room upgrade and had welcome treats waiting for us in our room. The staff here was superb and the rooms were beautiful. We stayed in one of the modern rooms (rather than the more traditional style rooms). It was a bit... More

The staff were good - pleasant and helpful. The room was a good size, if in possible need of a refurb. The breakfast very good quality. Attractive pool in the garden at the rear, but gym in a hot cupboard in the basement wasn't really good enough (by any means). The hotel is well located, but not in the very... More
