We loved the location of this hotel and the staff was always friendly. Super close to the train station - easy walk even with luggage. Our room was fairly large and clean but the toilet bubbled and gurgled the entire stay - so we kept the door shut to minimize the noise. The pillows are the hardest pillows I've ever... More

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days 3 days ago. Among positives the hotel is very close to the Firenze SMN railway station. You can walk to this hotel from the railway terminus in less than 5 minutes. We stayed in the family room which was quite large. In fact the bathroom is so large that it... More

Just around the corner from the main train station of Santa Maria Novella, very walkable. Close to the Central Market and its good osterias (try ZaZa) shops and street vendors (negotiate on the prices for leather purses, belts, and wallets for a terrific price). Pedestrian-friendly streets all around (don't try driving here unless you are a masochist). Quiet. Roomy. Very... More

Location is great - few minutes from the train station and from all the attractions (and still being quiet). Our room was huge and with a nice decor. Bathroom was spacious as well. Breakfast is good - not much variety but the basics are covered and the products are of a high quality. I recommend this hotel.

Booked the Economy room, which we were told was small, infact it was only the bed that was small, the room and bathroom were lovely. A good sized shower cubicle and beautiful thick, fluffy white towels. Bed would be too small for two large people but was fine for us except the pillows were uncomfortable. Beatrice tried to get them... More

Very lovely hotel. The location is great with lots of restaurants and a 10 min or so walk to the duomo. The hotel itself is very cute - the room was small (not enough room for 2 large suitcases) and a bit dark but overall enjoyable with a comfortable bed and a nice big bathroom. The breakfast was also good... More

This hotel always delivers. Centrally situated and only two blocks from train station. Large room with excellent hospitality from staff. Breakfast fresh and very good. Surrounding amenities very good with best coconut gelato in Italy situated on the corner. Very highly recommended

A real hotel, with a 24 hour manned desk. Breakfast buffet included meat, cheese, yogurt, variety of cereals including Muesli, eggs, croissants, juice and coffee. Hotel provided a nice breakfast in the evening for us to eat before an early train. Refrigerator in room. Bed was comfortable, room was quiet (faced courtyard), but room was tiny - only about 16"...

Very good location close to the railway station , spacious room, good breakfast with fruit and salads available. Bathroom was also very big with some areas that seemed not very regularly cleaned. Quiet location and polite staff.
