Only complaint was the bathroom was too small to move around and smelly. Staff was good and friendly. They even suggested places to go and things to do... Walking distance from the Duomo... And everything else.

We ended up here at the last minute due to a change in travel schedule. We know why it was available since the reviews on TA are not very encouraging. Great location, perfectly adequate breakfast, clean and adequate room. Bathroom was clean and water pressure in the shower was excellent. Our room was noiseless which was very much appreciated. If...

Great location, close to the train station and the Duomo, enjoyed a basic but adequate breakfast each morning. Be sure to visit to the fish, meat, fruit & veg. market early in the morning and Eataly upstairs has some great shops, bars and food producers.

Probably the worst room we stayed in on our month trip through Europe with very dated decor. 1. Double bed was two singles pushed together 2. "Satellite TV" just means that its not digital and from the 50's resulting in one black and white channel that was fuzzy with no sound 3. If showering in a fetal position under the... More

I got a very nice and big room, very beatiful ceiling. But for what I saw in the plan not all the rooms are that big. The location to the Duomo is also excellent, although the breakfast don't have alot to choose from.

This hotel is definitely not worth staying in. If you are after a short stay in Florence, you can definitely find better value for your money. The only plus of this hotel is its location, a short stroll from Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station, and right in the centre of the city. Now for the negatives: You might be... More

This hotel is well located near the train station & centrally to most attractions in Florence. We booked a standard double room-this room was quite old & could do with updating. The included breakfast was quite good. A nice stay but wouldn't rave about it. Laundry facilities would be good in all hotels but few have them. A kettle in... More

Lucky we (my son and i) only stayed one night. The traffic noise through the windows was terrible and the hotel was like I was still living in 1950, so old and very unloved. They charged us for the FREE wi-fi but it didn't work, when we mentioned it on the day we left, the lady at the front desk... More

Never again. Anywhere else then in the middle of Florence the hotel will get closed. Pictures are great but the reality is different. We have got for three nights dark room, the corridors and entrance hall was smelling like used closet. There is something wrong with the outlet canal tubes. The lady at the breakfast is quite annoying and don´t... More
