We reserved for our trip to Firenze on October and had a lovely surprise when we knew the location of the hotel, its very centric and near the great spots of the city. The reception staff was friendly and the room was quite interesting it had 4 beds ( reminded me of a convent room) but it was cute. The... More

I don't think I've ever been so "in the middle" of everything we wanted to see. Everything to see is within a very short walk from the hotel. The train station is a short walk, which we did with all our luggage, including our 9 year old. No issues. The breakfast was ok, a few savoury choices would be a... More

Best location town. Everything to do in Florence is within minutes. Breakfast was actually very good. Bathroom could use some upgrades. One of the guys in front desk had an attitude...we had no problems though.

Right in the middle of Florence. If you have limited luggage you could walk from the train station.We walked everywhere from the hotel. No need for taxis or tour buses. Nice, big room, very old fashioned, but it suited the hotel. The bathroom was basic, but clean and functional. Our room was at the back and so noisy at night... More

This is on the Plazza de republica and is just a 10 minute walk from the station. It is conveniently located to all restaurants and sightseeing in Florence and couldn't have been any better Shower space comes at a premium in Italian Hotels !

We picked this hotel mainly for the great location right at a corner of Piazza Della Repubblica, meaning we were within walking distance of most everything in Firenze. The price was very attractive, but the hotel is a bit old and run down. On the up side, the staff are helpful and courteous. Biggest complaint is about the bathroom. There... More

As nearly every reviewer notes, this is about as good a location as you can get in central Florence, no matter what you pay. It's not a five-star luxury facility, but it's pretty much no more than a block or three from any of the places most tourists would want to visit in the city. If you arrive by train... More

The hotel is located in the middle of the tourist areas. The service was excellent and helpful. The room was of a good size. The only criticism was that we asked for a double bed but got 2 single beds that were pushed together. This was uncomfortable if you happened to roll onto this part of the bed. Breakfast was... More
