4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

View from my room on the second floor was fantastic. It was great to wake up to view of the duomo. The fact that the hotel was attached to an indoor valet parking garage was a huge bonus. 28 euros seem steep, but worth it given the hassle of finding a space near by 5 min walk to the duomo... More

A great hotel in Florence!!! Very central and the rooms are big for European room sizes. Breakfast was good enough, service, and cleanliness was good too. There was a beautiful rooftop terrace on the 2nd floor. A good place to hang out. Would stay here again for sure

We stopped here for 2 nights, but was very disappointed, given this was suppose to be a 4 star hotel. We could not fault the location, as this was close to both Duomo and Galleria dell'Accademia. The room was clean and we had a balcony with a view of the Duomo, plus there was a jacuzzi in the bath tub,... More

I couldn't imagine a better location if you want to view the Duomo and Michelangelo's David. We were a family of four (two small kids) and were comfortable here for several days. Easy to hear through the walls though (we had some very happy honeymooners upstairs from us and it was a little awkward!). I would not rate this 4... More

We booked into Hotel California with very little notice. The hotel is close to a lot of the sites and restaurants. The breakfast buffet was very limited. Seemed to be out of most things causing us to eat items as/or if they became available. We had to pay for Internet, and even after paying, only two devices could access it... More

We found this hotel in a real hurry working on patchy wifi in Pisa - you get the picture. Google maps got us there perfectly without any trouble and the bonus of having a parking garage literally right next door to the hotel was great. On the same street as the Academia that houses Michaelangelo's David and the Cathedral at... More
