Not initially impressed but by the time our stay was over, came to appreciate its finer points. Great location, staff, and cleanliness. I've had better breakfasts but was good enough. Great recommendations were given for restaurants and train station was short walk away. A reasonable and comfortable experience.

We stayed here as a family of 4 and found the room comfortable and clean. The location was good , within walking distance of shopping, cafes, supermarkets and nearby laundromat. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Location is close to major sight seeing places and short walking distance from main train station. Breakfast is good and room is clean. Only negative point was that internet was very slow and on the second night during our stay, there were no internet at all.

Very poor quality of sleep, bad mattres condition, noisy room coming from the constant traffic. This hotel should be avoided if possible, location and proximity to the main city center is the only asse.

Like most hotels in florence it was handy to everything including the station, restaurants, markets etc. Basic accommodation but had everything you would require for the cost. Reception staff were very helpful. Basically if you want more plush surroundings then you have to be prepared to pay more.

It's in a rundown section of the city. The rooms (our room, anyway) are small and cramped. We had a problem with the toilet that was not fixed. I asked, reasonably so, for fresh bath towels on our second day and was snootily told "5 star hotels change the towels every day, we do it every second day." You can't... More

Walking distance from the train station, centrally located. Rooms are clean but small and cramped. Everything in the room creaked ; the tables, cupboard doors, the bed. They offered complimentary breakfast, but the spread didn't have many options. Staff is courteous , friendly and very helpful. All you need in Florence is a good nights sleep and a centrally located... More

This hotel had helpful and friendly staff. The room was a great size for a quad room. ( the best we had in Italy). Everything was with easy walking distance. Would recommend this hotel for families travelling with children.

The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful. Breakfast is included in the price, and it was good with pastries, cold meats, and fruit. It is within a walkable distance of the train station and all major sites within Florence. It is right on a main street with thin walls; if you are a light sleeper, you may want... More
