The staff were so sweet and very professional! The hotel was very cute and a perfect romantic getaway. The location was also perfect for us. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends if I ever visit the area in the future! :)

I stayed here last year during a brief trip to Florence for business and was impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. Breakfast was brought promptly to my room in the morning at the time I requested, and was always exactly what I requested on the breakfast card, unlike other hotels I have stayed in. The restaurant in... More

We were in Italy on a tour and were split from our group to this hotel. The other hotel was GORGEOUS. Our room had mold in the shower; dirty bedspreads, musty smell, a USED CONDOM on the floor! Breakfast was fair. We did not want to shower there because the tub was so dirty.

Very disappointed! Staff are very rude & surly! Beds and pillows are like rocks. Rooms smell musty. Quite out of central Florence. Breakfast is at allotted time slot and if you are not in time NO breakfast. Breakfast is very ordinary, cereal, croissants, white rolls, cold ham & cheese, that's it! Find a nicer place to stay!!

However its tradition, its celebrity and its name can be made to go back to the celebration of the festivity of Saint Lorenzo and to the family of the MEDICI.

Florence ON THE MEDICI'S age was an important crossroads where coming travellers could themselves be met from every part of the world and thus it is narrated that own in occasion of a Saint Lorenzo some English knights were present to the celebrations to which came offered the meat braced on fires. They called these it in their language beef steak referring to the type of meat that were eating. From a translation adapted to the running language it created the word here bistecca that is reached till the days ours. A version alternative ago to go back to English, present to Florence nell' 800, which have left remarkable traces in the Tuscany kitchen. It was be a matter of wealthy persons, that cuts of valuable meat could be allowed also, like the beef steak, exactly, but also like the roast beef, moreover anch' present it in the kitchen fiorentina.OUR GREAT CHEESECAKEThe cheesecake it has nearer origins much regarding that always it has been believed. It is born in fact in the 776 a.c in Greece like cake served to the athletes during the athletic contests.
