The hotel was nice and clean and breakfast was lovely. Nice choice of pastries for breakfast - the custard croissants were particularly nice. The staff were very friendly... More

It is a short walk, from the station, on a relatively quiet street. The staff was very friendly, the hotel clean and the room comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very good. It consisted of the usual... More

My family of 5 stayed in a twin sharing and a triple sharing room for 3 nights and our experience has been wonderful. The hotel is located near the train station and also in the city centre and the decoration was nice and breakfast was good. We would highly recommend this hotel.

I was with my wife staying at the hotel for 2 nights. The place is very well located, just a few steps from the main historical spots of Florence. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was nice. The staff has been very helpful and took care of our car too, which was parked in another structure. I definitely... More

Good location. Friendly staff. The room was quiet and clean. Nice breakfast. We stayed there for 4 nights. It was unexpected and very nice to get as a gift for my birthday a bottle of wine in an ice bucket :)
