We chose this hotel based on its proximity to the train station and didn't have overly high expectations, but we were very pleased with it. Santa Maria Novella and the leather market are very close by, and all major attractions are within easy walking distance. The train station area is noisy/busy, but the hotel is in a small quiet street.... More

My friend and I recently stayed in this hotel for two nights, on our way to Cinque Terre. The location was perfect for getting to the station, and also a reasonable walk from the other Florence attractions. We had requested a twin room and ended up with a room with loads of space and a total of five single beds!... More

Dear Shirley W, we are so disappointed for this review. We suppose that your reservation was for a double economy room. As specified in every website, this type of room are double rooms of smaller dimensions than the Classic ones. They are equipped with a French-style bed 140 cm wide. This kind of room enables you to economize on the... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when stopping in Florence and and picked it since it was close to many of Florence's attractions and to the Santa Maria Novella train station to get us to Cinque Terre. It was a good location for both and was in an older building that had an updated bath... More

The most terrible place I have ever stayed at. In the rooms the bed cover was not that great and it did have a dirty look, the bed linen was clean . But unfortunately the bathroom was too small. The shower caps were not replaced. The shower head had an issue and also there was no hot water . Above... More

We stayed here for one night in August. The hotel is well located for the railway station and not far from the Duomo - it's an easy walk. Our room was spacious and well appointed and, most importantly, clean. The breakfast was fine and the staff helpful. I would stay there again.
