Not much to say about it. The hotel was nice,helpful staff, the room was clean and we asked for an upper room and the view was beautiful. You can go by foot to visit Galleria dell' Academia (it takes 10' minutes) and other attractions nearby (Duomo, PonteVechio, etc).

I'll start by saying that this hotel is nothing more and nothing less than an average 3 stars hotel and it completely met my expectations of it. The hotel is renovated and has a modern-ish look to it. The receptionists were nice and gave good and quick service whenever we needed. We were a couple, but for some reason received... More

- Reasonably clean room, bathroom could be cleaner - Room key was a code which is quite nice if you can remember it - small stuffy elevator but staircase was not a lot better - very nice and friendly receptionist, who gave exceptionally good recommendations - Location was quite nice, not far from nightlife, not in the touristy area

Looking for a place to sleep with no additional comfort in a good location we came upon this hotel. We were happy with the location as it is surrounded by shops, cafes, restaurants and it is walking distance to the city center. As we did not have high expectations, the hotel was fine with us. Stuff was helpful and friendly.

The only positiv thing about this hotel is location. It is just 20 minutes to walk to cathedral. Rooms are very old and not properly cleaned. Our shower was destroyed the whole periode we were there. First night they had nobody to fix it and no available room to move oss. Same thing second and third day. They suggested free... More

I arrived on a Monday and checked in, everything was fine. I got to my single room which turned out to look a bit like a prison cell. I'm guessing the Italians love simplicity! The light just inside the door wasn't working, but who really wants to be blinded when entering their hotel room? Not me, that's for sure! They... More

After the B&B in Roma Tratevere this hotel was not as good. The room was smaller, but with the same quality, a large bed, and a fairly good bathroom with a great shower. It's close to the center of Firenze (15 minutes walk). The breakfast was average but since i stayed on the week end the price was great. And... More

This place had a great location! The free wifi worked pretty well 90% of the time which was fairly good compared to some of the places we visited in Italy. It was very clean and the rooms had plenty of space. Our room was all white with a very cool wall painting in black of The Duomo. Really comfortable and... More

Spent here one night. Pros: it's cheap for the Florence's standards; beds are very comfortable; close to the centre; our room was on the top floor so we enjoyed a great view. Cons: this is NOT a B&B, meaning that breakfast is not included (shouldn't the name be changed?); no private car park - and the one they suggested just... More
