My original booking was transferred to this hotel due to the renovation. I had no worry about it, since the owner of the original one and this hotel is the same. As everybody mentioned, max 5 min walk from the SMN station and the local supermarket is in 1 min walk, super convenient location. Breakfast is modest (as continental), but... More

Cannot fault this hotel considering the price. The staff are very friendly, breakfast is sufficient and the location is excellent. Less than a 5 minute walk from the train station, mercato centrale a 1 minute walk. The shower enclosure in our room is a bit to small but not a big deal.

We stayed for 3 nights in October 2014 and enjoyed a comfortable stay. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, they booked tickets for us to visit the Uffizi. There was a good selection for continental breakfast which was frequently restocked. Our only complaint would be about the noisy air conditioning which we had to turn off at night!

great location, florence isn't that big but it's super close to train station, mercato centrale and most stuff. the train station is 2 mins away and the mercato is literally at its footstep. staff was super friendly. very clean, modern and decent sized, good value, would stay again. missed the breakfast but amazing coffee/pastry shop outside next door.

Stayed for the last few days of 2014. 1st impression-within only two blocks from the train station, took us less than 5mins reaching there. The hotel sign from distance was a little shocking in the beginning to be honest... Room was spacious. Had a rather compact shower booth but the soaps showergel etc. were refreshened everyday. Area - again, close... More

My husband did a lot of research and managed to find this gem of a hotel in Florence. And it impressed us! I felt that our experience of the city was further enhanced by our stay here. The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast was good and they even have complimentary tea and coffee at the reception. It was... More

Last June I booked a reservation thru the hotel's website to stay one night in October. When plans changed, I e-mailed the hotel in July to say that my plans had changed and I needed to cancel the reservation.

To be honest the location is about 10 to 20 minutes from the center by walk but there are so many great restaurants around there and it is very close to the train station. The breakfast is great, wifi is great, it s clean and comfortable. And the reception is very nice

Very close to train station and major Florence attractions, we could walk everywhere! Rooms and bathrooms are very small, but clean, and beds are really comfortable. Service was very nice, all employees were very helpful. Very good breakfast, with a nice choice. Plenty of restaurants in the same street. This hotel is a very nice place to stay in Florence!
