The hotel was located close to everything. Hardly a 5 minute walk to the train station and only a 10 minute walk to the Duomo. Room was quite dark with a small bathroom, but it was fine. The room was quite warm so went to put the air conditioner on but it only seemed to blow hot air. We simply... More

had a great time staying here, the staff were very helpful when we needed them, the hotel is well located close to the station, sights and shops. It was great to get a good brekky before a day out. Large comfortable room for three people, happily recommend for others to visit

This is an extremely convenient spot in Florence, close to most everything. Clean and well appointed, with an accommodating front desk staff. It's an easy walk to the train station, and there are several restaurants in the area to choose from.

Great location, but hotel is very basic - we were there in winter and the room we had - had a tiled floor so although warm always felt cold :( breakfast was included which was basic but good. Location - right near train station so very very easy to get to.

Kind guest, thank you very much for your review and for your holidays with us. We are very sorry for tiled floor, but we prefer this kind of typical Florentine floor to other solutions less hygienic as the carpet. We have the pleasure to inform that we are introducing wood parquet instead of Florentine terracotta both hypoallergenic materials and Safe... More

Very closed to SMN station . 'Supposed 5 minutes on foot from the hotel to the station (when you have a big luggage , it would take more couple of minutes to reach the station from the hotel .) Hotel clerks were so kind . It's very cheap and seriously a good accommodation . (The room was smaller than I... More

We were two Kiwi women in our 60's and had a VERY enjoyable stay here for 6 nights in July 2013. We were given private access to the roof garden as we were the "talkative" types and after a few issues with internet access which staff were happy to remedy the general manager was happy to receive ideas about improvements...

Great room. Reasonable view from our window. Great breakfast. Great price. Altogether an enjoyable few days spent at this hotel. It is close to the train station, across the road from the buses, easy to walk everywhere from, and pleasant staff. What more could you want?

I have a mix of good and bad points about the hotel. In summary, the hotel's location is great, just 5 minutes away from Firenze SMN station by foot and is convenient for those who are travelling from and to other city. There are many cafes and a supermarket just across the street, and most tourist spots are within 15... More

My wife and I stayed on a short journey through Tuscany, after visiting Siena. The location by the main railway station in Florence (Firenze) is very convenient, once you get your bearings. The small narrow road that the hotel is off has small shops, bars, restaurants and hotels. The side street has a great choice of restaurants with more only... More

My wallet was lost in room 109 and during room make up when we had breakfast at the ground level. We had put a DND sign and locked the door before proceeding to breakfast,and planned to return for our bags before heading out.
