Best accomodation so far . Loved the whole feel of this place with the sculptures and friendly staffs, great buffet breakfast and easy access to the main cathedral. My family loved Firenze as we could explore the city at anytime and walking was fun😊

We stayed here in Nov 2014 as part of an on-your-own package. The hotel is very nice. It has a small entrance from the street (look unassuming) then once inside the court yard opens up. We had no issues finding the hotel, room was ready when we arrived late morning. Breakfast was also enjoyable. (Note, a number of tour groups... More

If you take the train into Florence you have about a 15 minute walk to this hotel, but Florence is a pretty easy city to navigate through. The hotel decor definitely keeps up with the art history that Florence is known for. The rooms were really big, I was definitely impressed. Our room had a really interesting layout, one large...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a 7 night/8day tour of Italy. The hotel itself is average. It has a lot of character, but is dated and could use some updating. The rooms are relatively "large" for European hotels; we had a double and our daughter a single. The bathrooms were the smallest we experienced, but also... More

Rooms were kept very clean. Spacious and comfortable. Great breakfast, though I recommend going a little late because of the large groups that often overwhelm the staff. The Trattoria Tito is a local hot spot for eating, and a real delight to dine as a local would, but careful that your room isn't on that side. It gets noisy at... More
