We decided to book this hotel as the rate was competitive for a Hotel that was 4 (?!) star. At the end of our stay we were charged extra quite significant amount as it turns out that you pay supplement per person per night for each star a hotel has - this one was 4 (?!). Filth, blood or poo... More

I was in Florence for a school trip and the tour company booked this place. We stayed here for 3 nights and to be honest it was an okay stay. The staff was friendly. Although the rooms were small and outdated they were pretty comfortable and clean. We were staying 3 to a room and there were 3 twin beds.... More

Don't stay here unless you're on a seriously tight budget. The room is quite spacious but the decor is desperately old and depressing. The worst was the bath shower with no curtain of any kind, so no matter what you do you end up with a flooded bathroom.

A group stayed at this hotel at the end of October for 3 nights. The staff are extremely nice. Rooms comfortable. It's quite an old hotel dates back to the 50's I'd say by the looks of the place. Breakfast was Continental only very nice. Coffee. From the machine was quite nice bread and pastries good. The hotel is a... More

Be careful. This "4 stern " hotel is the most bad hotel I visited in the last years! persistent lack of parking (for all 2 days), breakfast quality, unceremonious unfriendly attitude of the staff (the question of how to get here to the historic center (more than 2 kilometers), answered: only taxi (although there was a bus stop around the...

This hotel was a pleasant surprise because of the many bad reviews. It is clean, nice and quiet. It has everything you need: friendly receptionists, comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels, hot water, air conditioning. You can put a laptop in the safe, so big it is. It is true that the bathroom is small, but is clean and you... More

Old fashioned feeling, but the staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms are adequate - you aren't going to be staying in the room very long anyway, so who cares! The balcony views of the Arno and surround was fun. Be sure and walk through the very residential neighborhood behind the hotel for coffee, fruit, pastries. Guido's restaurant in... More

Some of the reviews on here worried me a lot, especially as I was accompanying a large group of 17 year olds. Yes, it is in need of modernisation, but the staff were helpful and friendly and it more than did the job. The rooms are quite small, the TV sets only have 5 (Italian language) channels and the shower... More
