Best thing about this hotel by far is the great location, very close to the train station it's literally in the heart of the touristic center of the city. We had to walk just one block to get to the Florence Catedral Building - Il Duomo. All the other objectives on our map were covered by walking in and out... More

Our property is aware of this and will not be made ​​until all the necessary changes has decided to maintain the tariffs due to rising costs would need very strong increase. Abbiao a few months...

We stayed here for three nights, in room 301, two weeks ago. I got a good price on the room via an opaque travel site, and was somewhat alarmed about the hotel after reading some of the negative reviews here, but fortunately we had no issues. The in-room safe is too small to hold a laptop, but I didn't bring... More

Located a block away from Il Duomo, near the market, the train station and the David this is the best value in Florence. It is surrounded by great restaurants and shops. The staff is very helpful; the rooms are good size, very clean but with some dated furniture. The bed was comfortable though not very soft. When we return to... More

As I was on my own there were no problems been out at night as again less than 2 minutes were shops, restaurant and plenty of people... More

my husband booked a very expensive 3 night weekend package for our anniversary through Citalia. This hotel came highly recommended from Citalia and we were expecting much more than we got. The lifts are old as other reviewers mention and in certain parts of the corridors there is a strange smell. This was not the case in the rooms, which... More

dear customer, thank you for your review which will be very useful to improve. However, we want to point out some considerations: 1) the rooms can not be noisy, so to use earplugs, because the hotel is situated in the pedestrian area and the rooms have double glazing. We do not understand then what it points to the noise you... More

The lighting was poor and so was the water flow in the shower . The room was almost good, the location good, the price was expensive.

Good service lift up the hotel that is old. We have been few times from 2000 on this hotel, while the service is always high standard the property itself is now tired. They revamped the foyer years ago but the basic of the hotel should be renewed. Lifts are old please update! Staff and location makes the difference. Company or... More

this was booked through the travel agent and we were assured that it was a good hotel. I have to strongly disagree. First there is the disagreeable smell permeating through the corridor, there is no hot water and pressure is low in the shower. Toilet was leaking and the bed was rock hard. Avoid room 403 or you will be... More
