Looks a bit shocking from the outside and its far away from town BUT......they is a tram nearby which brings you straight in town and the hotel inside was lovely typical Italian style I even got some inspiration how to create my own...

We stayed here Oct 2013. Great location just outside of the city center. A short walk to the tram that takes you into Florence(10min ride). The room and the bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was very good. A secure parking space with a small charge. We would definately stay here again.

I was there with my wife and one baby. The Hotel is far from the touristic spots, but there's a tram direct to there. The Hotel is very informal. This is good, but can disappoint if you wait professionalism. I mean, the staff has good intentions, but they had no training. No doubts about that. We made a reservation for... More

This hotel is out of town but is just 5 mins walk to the local tram stop - which will get you into Florence in about 15 mins. I wish we'd eaten dinner at the adjoining restaurant as it looked great (and the breakfast buffet we ate there was very above average).

The hotel is out of town but only a few minutes walk to tram station where you can make use of this clean efficient public transport & be downtown in the thick of old FLorence in about 10mins. The hotel itself was very clean albeit smallish room but good kingsize bed. Breakfast was adequate. Price was good at Euro63 for... More

Very nice and clean hotel, nice rooms, very nice breakfast. Enjoyed staying there. It is about 10 min from train station in a tram, but we only used it a few times. Florence is very small, we always walked everywhere by feet.

I stayed at this hotel in October of 2009. The hotel is not centrally located. The building is quite old but the rooms are sufficiently sized in comparison to other hotels I've stayed in, in Florence. The front desk clerk at the time was quite helpful, he allowed me to check in early and was conversant in English. With this... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times because it is convenient for our cause. It is nothing exceptional, just a room, most of the time clean with a ok bed and old fashioned furniture. The staff are always very polite and the breakfast is a combination of cheap pastries and cereal. The coffee for italian standards is terrible as it... More

We was extremely pleased with many aspects of this hotel. The reception/breakfast area is attractive, making a good first impression. We were very impressed with our room, which was a good size, very clean and attractively furnished. The en-suite was a good size too. Our room also has a flat screen tv, and free wifi. We were on the top... More

I expected the worse but it was a very good and nice place. Small and friendly. We stay for 4 nights and use the local bus for travel to the center of Florence. The restaurant in the next house was perfect. Not a romantic restaurant, but very good food.
