A nice, clean hotel central to all the main attractions and very close to the railway station. Staff were very helpful and recommended some great restaurants. Internet was good, rooms were small but clean. Breakfast was so so. Recommend a stay.

This hotel is a nice, clean and centrally located. Very close to the Santa Maria Novella train station, the market and museums. The hotel staff are very pleasant and extremely helpful, breakfast buffet was just OK but good enough to start the morning.

I love the location of this hotel, and Sarah at the front desk this the most helpful person I've seen in hotels in a long time! She needs to be running the show there! The hotel has great WiFi and a very nice breakfast. It's a short walk to Duomo and to local shops and even a grocery store! I... More

Great location near the train station and San Lorenzo market. We had a room overlooking the road which we thought would be noisy but with the shutters closed it was really quiet. We also requested a bath and got one. The two ladies on reception could not have been more helpful ( they make this hotel extra special) and there... More

I had to many hotels in Florences lately, some was nice but far from the center , some was near the center but low hospitality. This one is just perfect... I don't care how many stars they have, because the hotel is just at the best spot in town, 1 min from the market and duomo, the bars and restaurants.... More

Perfect location in Florence, walking distance to the train station. We stayed here during our honeymoon, and we were treated to a complimentary bottle of wine! Room was neat and clean, bathroom was small but standard size to what you would normally find in Italy. Overall, a great hotel!

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. The location is great. We came by train from Rome and could walk to the hotel. We also could walk to the car rental office and of course to all of the attractions in the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but comfortable and quiet.
