We need a Florence hotel with a good location within short walking distance to town and that offered sleeping room for four. This hotel fit the bill perfectly. Our room or apartment was large, two bedrooms (1 queen and two twin) and 1 and a half bathrooms with a small kitchenette and living room. Very clean rooms and beds pretty... More

We were told that we would be in a 4 star hotel but i didnt feel that it should be 4 stars. The hotel property was beautiful. Our room was huge. We had a small kitchenette and a living room. There was a small space with two twin sized beds and a pull out bed in the sofa. Nothing special... More

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

The localization was near to san marco square and others tourists famous places in florence. The service was good and the breakfast was delicious!!! By walking we spent 10 min to downtown! It is close to train station also. 10 min by walking or 5 min by taxi. Be carefully with taxi drivers they can spend more time than necessary... More

This hotel was very accommodating and really all that you need in Florence. The room we had was very large, clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The happy hour was worth enjoying before heading out for an evening meal. Good wine, great service. It still makes me chuckle to see people come to a beautiful city like Florence, with... More

Our tour group stayed in this hotel. While the location is good the hotel is staffed with unfriendly people. We stayed in the old section of the hotel. Our room was quite large and equipped with a kitchen that had no silverware, pots and pans. Our bathroom was designed for one person use. Room lighting is almost nonexistent as is... More

I had a large and pleasant room, complete with small microwave, wee stove, and fridge perfect for keeping wine, bread, cheese, and limoncello! Furnished simply but comfortably in a nice, quiet neighborhood.

Not a bad hotel. Staff was somewhat helpful. Elevators don't work well. Breakfast was good but always crowded due to the fact that there are many tour groups in this hotel. Location is good. Rooms were ok but small so are the bathrooms. Just an average hotel.
