The hotel is quite simple and well located. It is at the edge of the historical zone, right beside the river, around 15-20 minutes walking from Galleria degli Uffizi and Ponte Vechio. Our window looked out onto the river and probably all the rooms had the same view (see picture). The attendant is a very solicitous man, always willing to... More

I would not hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone wanting to spend a couple of days in Florence and be close to all the sights without shelling out the big bucks. It really is just a place to sleep and store your stuff whilst you roam about town exploring all the museums and sit in a trattoria or osteria enjoying... More

Location is great but wifi signal did not reach our room. We had to sit outside in the hall to get a signal (and it ran VERY slow). The guy at the desk said he had never heard of this issue (doubt it). Not the kind of service we expected for the price. Even hostels we've stayed at for a... More

The guy that is always there is so helpful and the place is soooo clean which I loved because in Rome I stayed at this horrible and very dirty place. Their location is unbeatable for the price. It's 7 mins walk to the train station and 10 min walk to the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Acadamia, etc. Their breaksfast is the... More

Needs a good tidy up and an update. Our room was clean but we had mould in our shower which we asked to get cleaned and it did, somewhat... Rooms don't come with curtains, but that might be common. On the bright side the host was very friendly and extremely helpful.

The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the main train station and about 15 to centre of florence. Its in the embassy area so it's pretty quiet at night and the streets are not busy. When you enter the lobby get in the elevator and go to 4th floor. The elevator was very clanky. Rooms are very basic. The... More

Small relaxed family hotel .Nice location at the river Arno. Close to the central parts of Florens and at the same time with a view over river Arno with turtels and herons. Clean nice rooms,with typical Italian atmosphere. Good service.

in the embassy district. Walls are paper thin. You can hear everything. Rooms weren't very well cleaned. Shower was small and the water dripped out with no pressure whatsoever. All thats good is price. But next time I would pay a little bit more for a better location as well as a cleaner hotel.

A spacious room with a clean ensuite. No character to speak of furniture wise but we just used the place as a base in Florence for 3 days before we went to Tuscany. I personally have stayed in much friendlier places but hey, it was good for a short stay. Breakfast was basic and sufficient. Next time, will choose a... More

How could there be an oasis in the city? It's this hotel; beautiful old building on the river with 500€ a night view for under 100€! Best location for all you want to see is within a 5-10 minute walk. It has the most informative and nice staff. Nice clean and quiet room . I would highly suggest it!
