I stayed here for a few nights on business and was very happy with the hotel. It's in quieter residential area less than a five minute walk from the Excelsior or St. Regis and about a 10-15m walk from the Palazzo Vecchio or the Duomo so the location provides easy access to the heart of Florence with the bonus of...

We had four nights here. Rooms and bathrooms not huge but adequate, comfortable and with all the extras you expect in a five star. Whilst I have read other reviews that say too far from icy centre we can't agree - a very easy stroll into town. It was also a nice neighbourhood with lots of local meal choices. We... More

A haven in central Florence. Marble bathrooms and rich furnishings game you the feel that you really were in Florence. Easy walk to all city attractions. Restaurant outstanding. Staff very helpful. No downside at all.

Excellent Location near the river and American Consulate. Just a few blocks from all the sights and museum following a short walk through some wonderful small local trattorias and restaurants. The hotel itself was nice, with good sized clean rooms, nice linens, robes etc. .. about what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. The strange thing was that it... More

Dear guest, thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. I’m glad you appreciated the location and decor of the hotel. You touched a good point: our boutique hotel, despite is very busy is always very quiet. None of the guest is obliged to dine or drink at the hotel, but several guests have provided very positive feedback... More

The location is great, off the beaten path and quiet but a reasonable walk to the main tourist area with a great restaurant across the street. The main entrance is lovely with the courtyard and lobby is classic. he front desk staff are ok but we felt like a second class citizen's. I put this off to that we booked... More

Dear Travaelcritica-ca, thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience on this website. I’m glad you apreciated your stay with us, including the location and our lovely courtyard. The 50% of our guest comes through an online agency, so there is no “second class” at all. What probably my colleague tried to explain you was that booking directly... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a quiet side street two streets up from the river Arno. Turn left out of the hotel and walk for 4 minutes and the main promenade beside the river takes you to the main attractions. Neither my husband nor I found this an onerous walk, far from it, it was lovely to escape the... More

We had a pleasant stay, the room mini suite was a little bit dark but I should admit the bathroom was super small and needs badly a serious update. The personnel on services are ok but we felt limited and awkward on asking whatever we were needed to make our stay more pleasant and advices on places off the tourist... More

I usually prefer modern hotels to classical ones but this one was so well kept and luxurious that you couldn't help but like it. Location was a convenient walk from the main train station but a little far from the main tourist attractions for my liking. Our room was extremely spacious and nice and clean. Having said that, there was... More

This is a quality building with all you would expect in room size and quality. The restaurant is also very good. The worst feature of the hotel is the location it is just too far to walk everyday into the town centre. Also the hotel is in a residential community with really nothing around it but one small restaurant .... More

This hotel has is in a good location only blocks away from the train station. It is away from the main tourist areas but it keeps the hotel quiet. Duomo is about a 5-10 minute walk away. Room was clean and well appointed, albeit a little dated. Big problem is there really was only one power outlet to use in... More
