We were very impressed with this hotel - it seems to be a superior 3 star. The location is great, esp if you arrive via the train station. It's very easy to find and quite central. We had a large, elegant room overlooking the Piazza. The view is lovely, but if you like the window open, it may be too... More

We stayed here for five nights and will come back. Easy to reach from the station, a direct route, only a short walk, not hard even when dragging your luggage. Close to the centre and the central market, overlooking a large square, quiet at night, no traffic. The reception staff were welcoming and friendly and spoke to us in English... More

This hotel smells so bad, it is dirty and there are so many bugs it is unbelievable. The first night we arrived the room smelled like rotting meat and I got two huge mosquito bites. I would never recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights when visited Florence. I had no problems with anything, found the hotel clean and in a quiet place overlooking the Piazza dell'Indipendenza, nice green square, unlike many other hotels located in busy streets like via Nazionale that I've passed on the way. Location is very convenient for both bus/train station - only 10... More

Stayed at this hotel for four nights. Firstly the guy who checked us in was very unfriendly and kept our passports for 3 hours for 'registration' purposes, when we came back to collect them later that night we were then told that everytime we leave the hotel we needed to leave them with the room key. Also when i asked... More

Dear Madam, first of all, thank you very much for your comments on our Hotel. I would like to reply to your opinions: 1. we do ask passport for each of our guest, in order to register it for the Italian police. This is the law in Italy. We do normally do all the registrations in the afternoon. In the... More

i was with the group in Malaspina. The stuff really was not professional. They let the passports to wrong persons. They didn´t say welcome, hello etc. They could not organize cold wine or spumante. They did not even looked into your face. Only the woman who cleans is normal and helpful. I couldn´t believe that we are in Italy! The... More

This hotel was great in comparison with the other hotels in which I stayed in Italy. As per usual, just to make sure we got to the right place, we hired a cab to take us there from the train station. There was no need as it was only a 10 min walk from there, as we would come to... More

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and overall had a good experience at this hotel. It has some lovely features and doesn't feel as bland as a lot of hotels. The room we had was a good size and had its own balcony overlooking a park. The biggest disappointment of the rooms is that there are no... More

It's not an Italian thing this check in procedure. The welcome received in this hotel did not match the professionalism of the reception staff in Rome or Venice. Let's not try and say rudeness is a necessary requirement of the Italian check in procedures.
