We spend five night at the family room. The room upstairs had no outlets at all. We thought we could unplug one of the lamps, but their outlets were completely different from any other outlet I have ever seen. Called desk to see if they could do something about, but they weren't helpful at all. I ended up unplugging the... More

Very nice hotel. Clean, spacious rooms. Helpful staff. High-end marble common lobby areas and a nice outdoor patio. Internet worked well (which is not always the case in European hotels). The rate we got through hotwire was an amazing value (probably because we were there during the offseason). Only potential downside was that the hotel's location was a 15 minute... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at this hotel in Florence. It's a charming place. A little dated, but that adds to its charm. It's also a little off the beaten path, but not much because everything in Florence is within walking distance (approximately 15-20 mins to the Uffizi on foot). Very close to the train station which... More

Great hotel just far removed. Long walk to sights but not terrible. Room was very large and high tech. Hard to find taxi but front desk can call. Didn't use on site restaurant. Very comfortable bed. Would probably not return but only due to location.

I was there with my family two days on 1 November. Staff not helpful at all. In a 5 star hotel staff should not ask to carry the luggage to a lady, you simply take it and carry it. Breakfast starts at 7:00, but it is not fully ready until 7:30. In general people working is not happy and energetic,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our 3 week honeymoon tour of Italy and were very disappointed. It definitely isn't up to 5-star standard and in my view doesn't deserve more than 4 stars. The staff tried to be helpful but not all succeeded. The breakfast was average and the primary breakfast host was pretty brusque though... More

This is a very nicely renovated hotel. It is a bit off the tourist path with about a 20 min. Walk to the attractions but is well appointed and quiet. It was raining hard so we ate in the hotel restaurant. We found it overpriced and very average. Otherwise not a bad choice
