We arrived at the hotel from the train station (10-15 minute walk) to check-in earlier than planned.The gentleman at reception (black hair and goatee) was very rude and abrupted and questioned why we were staying in Italy if we could only speak a litlle bit of italien. We were then told to put our luggage in the room next door... More

I travel often and this is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. There is an EXTREMELY rude concierge and hotel is far from four stars. If you're looking for a hotel covered in black mold, dead bugs and raw sewage smells leaking through the vents then this is your place;) .. Honestly disgusting. Oh and I forgot... More

This is a lovely traditional italian hotel situated conveniently close to the centre of Florence. The staff were friendly, polite and incredibly helpful, especially Giovianni who even offered to lend us an umbrella when it rained. The room was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was very nice and again the staff were courteous and helpful. The hotel is two minutes... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's located about a 15 minute walk from the train station, and a good 20 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio. It's definitely an older European building. The rooms are small and feels older. It's in a quieter area of town, so it's great to sleep in the quiet. Daniel checked us in, who was... More

This hotel is a short walk from the river on a quiet and narrow street. Our room was large as it had a king bed. The bathroom had a whirlpool tub but we couldn't get it to work with the minimal instructions given by the staff. Another problem with the tub is that we were unable to release the stopper... More
