Very good location in Florence, about a 15 minute walk down the river to get to downtown. I am sure you could pay a lot more for a hotel closer, but this hotel is a good compromise. The bar area was very nice and all the staff was friendly. Didn't think the room quality was 5 stars, but it wasn't... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was really lovely. The food was amazing, such a wide choice for breakfast and the dinner we had on the first night was delicious. The breakfast staff were particularly welcoming and helpful. We can't speak much Italian but believe our effort to speak it was appreciated! The room we stayed in was... More

Beautiful, good location, great housekeeping staff. My daughter and I felt like an inconvience to the front desk staff...perhaps relocation in their computers to face the counter would be more convienent to them than me having to get their attention. I am used to getting info about the hotel (gym, restaurant, maps, etc)when I check in ... Nothing. We were... More

We had a nice stay here. The rooms are very nice. We stayed in a junior suite, which is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The best part of the room was the blackout shutters which block out ALL light and almost all sound completely. Because of this, we had a very restful sleep in a quiet room. The... More

Very helpful staff. The rooms are not bad, Italian style and not really modern. Location is good, you walk about 15 minutes to the city centre. Free wifi!! They have a nice garden area as well. We got a wheel chair friendly room (we didnt ask for it or need it) and the sinks were too low and the shower... More

This is a boutique luxury hotel located at the western end of Florence. The public area is nice, particularly the garden. The room is richly decorated. My only complaint is the location: it is near the train station, but about half a mile too far west to reach the downtown easily.

Lovely hotel, within walking distance of all of the major attractions in Florence, but far enough out of the centre to get a quiet night's sleep. Very helpful and friendly staff, and the room in which we stayed was lovely; very spacious and immaculate. If we return to Florence, which I'm sure we will, then this hotel would likely be... More
