We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. The hotel was very clean, and very quiet. The staff was so helpful - they went out of their way to tell us about local sites that we might find of interest. They called cabs for us, and helped us obtain train tickets for a quick day trip to Rome.... More

Recently traveled to Florence with my daughter and stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Spacious, clean and perfectly situated with the Duomo within arm's reach. Breakfast was included and served on the terrace. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful...I would not hesitate to stay here on future visits!

We were disappointed in this hotel, 1 of 4 hotels we stayed at in Europe. The only redeeming quality is that the hotel was in a great location - 10 minute walk from the train station, and less to the Duomo, leather markets, etc. The front desk staff was less than friendly and not helpful. The bed was absolutely hard... More

This was an excellent stay. The location is perfect, and the hotel was great! One thing to remember about most European hotels is that the beds and pillows are rarely like what an American is used to. The room was clean and the bathroom spotless. It was quiet despite being a couple hundred yards from il Duomo. BTW, you can... More

This 4 star hotel that feels more like a five except for the small lobby is within a stone's throw of the Duomo and, hence, most of the sights of Florence. It's also a short walk from the train station (about 10 minutes), but ours was longer since the booking site (not TA) gave the wrong address on the confirmation.... More

This was probably the nicest room of the 3 different hotels we stayed in during our Italy trip. Great sized room, nice bathroom and the location of this hotel is just awesome. 2 min from the Duomo and maybe 10 from the train station. The breakfast was just OK but pretty much what you expect. The front desk were not... More

We booked a room with a view and while there is a view it is limited. There is double glazing to keep out street noise which is effective but impossible to have the windows open for air. Oddly the air conditioning was not possible to access as it is seasonal and we had to request a fan which was promptly... More

Without breaking the bank, this is probably one of the best locations that you could have within Florence for a hotel. If you are traveling from another city in Italy by train, this is only a 10 minute walk from the train station. On the other side of the hotel, it is only a 5 minute walk from the Duomo... More
