We stayed at this charming homely little hotel, next door to a pizzeria, for three nights. It was spotlessly clean and all the staff were polite friendly and helpful throughout our stay. It exceeded our expectations. Although it was a little way out of the centre, it was no more than a 15- 20 minute journey from the train station... More

Dear JulieDaffodil, Thank you for having chosen our hotel for your stay in Florence and I am glad to learn we exceeded your expectations! You gave such an exhaustive description of the hotel, the surroundings, the way to reach the city centre, the shops in the area, that I think all TA readers will appreciate it and would be of...

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Rosary Garden for three nights. When we arrived we found that the only access to the Hotel was a steep staircase (see photo) from the ground floor to the first floor. The owner Monica and one of her colleagues helpfully brought our cases up the stairs to the reception area. If visitors... More

Dear TravellerCymruWales, It has been very kind of you to share your opinions with the Tripadvisor community, and I thank you because you brought to my attention some aspects that gave me the possibility to improve our services, things that can be better explained, some problems that have already been solved (see photos), others that we will be solved soon,...

We stayed in this lovely hotel in September 2014 and will definitely stay again when back in Florence. The owners, Andrea and Monica, were the most gracious hosts and so were their employees. We felt welcomed and at home. The hotel is located in the residential area on the outskirts of the city which makes it quiet for a good... More

Dear Glenn and Kathy, What a pleasure reading so many nice things about us! I am so glad you felt here at home, as this is exactly what we aim to. The hotel is small and family run. We cannot surprise our guests with luxury and opulence, but only with our kindness, with the attention to their needs and with... More

Dear Robert100, Thank you for your kind comments on our hotel. Although you stayed here one night only, I am glad you have found our staff friendly and helpful, and that you liked our “house”. I am sorry that the restaurant downstairs (not belonging to the hotel) asked you to wait thus not being so friendly. Needless to say that... More

We had a short break in this hotel , on the outskirts but with great bus access to the city centre and a wonderful family owned restaurant next door , stopping here gives you the balance between tourism and an authentic glimpse of Florence living

Dear Johnnyfst, Thank you for having been so kind as to leave your feedback on Tripadvisor. I am even more pleased you have enhanced the aspect of being in an area from which you can easily reach the historical center by bus in a few minutes, but at the same time you can breathe the atmosphere of the real life...

The guy at reception was not helpful at all. Internet connection very bad. No working aircon (as seems to be the case with all hotels in Italy... 😉 ). Breakfast not good. Breakfast area is very small and the choice of food much more limited than similar hotels. Food not replenished after other guests finished it and there was a... More

I have been quite surprised and sad to read your comments about our hotel, as it seems everything went wrong, and I try to reply briefly, but in a clear and honest way. 1. The person you say was not helpful, Andrea, is mentioned in many other comments on TA by guests who think exactly the opposite of what you... More

From the outside, this hotel choice seems to be a bad idea as the small building block was like a little island surrounded by 4 roads. Once inside and given a short introduction by Monica, we were amazed by the warm and homely feel of this hotel. Room was big enough with a double bed and a single bed for... More

My wife and I spent three nights at the Rosary Garden Hotel in Florence in October 2014. This is a small boutique hotel situated about 1.5 miles from the center of Florence. We choose this hotel because of the good reviews and its location in a quieter part of the city. We soon discovered that we were far from the... More

I stayed here with my wife and teenage daughter and we loved the boutique feel about the hotel. The place is so pretty and reminds me of the type of place you would find in Oxford or York. The staff are incredibly helpful to the point where you can ask them anything - like why are there golf clubs by... More

Feels like home, not very far from central Florence. Very friendly staff, after we had gotten a little lost on the way there, someone at the front desk highlighted bus routes and sights to see on a map for us. Good nights sleep and a delicious breakfast. Thank you!
