The best hotel I have ever stayed! Excellent service, friendly stuff, perfect location. Walking distance to center, just 5 minutes walking. A lot of good shops and restaurants around. Also, they have 24/7 coffee or hot tea and croissant in lobby. It was so nice to come from cold weather and enjoy hot tea.... for information, cup of tea in... More

The hotel is in an ideal position for the many bars and restaurants and for sight seeing. It is on a noisy busy road which might not suit everyone. It was very clean but a bit dated. The breakfast wasn't up to much and in a very small room. The lady on reception was very helpful.

The room decoration is a little dated. If you could look beyond that, it is actually perfect. It is about a 5 mins walk to Stazione Santa Maria Novella station, 2 minutes walk to the Mercato central, 10 mins walk to Duomo, 15 mins walk to Uffizi etc. You may also find many eateries around the hotel.

Always wanted to go to florence, so this was a really good choice for a hotel due to its central location and it wasn't far to travel from the train station to it and from where the terravision bus drops you off from coming from either florence or pisa airport in our case. Due to being a central location it... More

This hotel is located conveniently in the center of Florence and not far from the rail station. The staff is very friendly and helpful and a parking garage is nearby. The offer valet parking and even washed my car. Breakfast was a bit crowded but okay.

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!

Of course we will check the air conditioning system as per your reference, but we are happy that you appreciated our buffet breakfast, our staff and services provided by our hotel. We look forward...

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
