I booked this hotel because of its proximity to Santa Maria Novella train station and the great price tag. When we got there we couldn't find the entrance! Eventually we saw this little brass plaque on the wall of an alley proclaiming that it was on the 2nd floor of a small high rise. Actually if I'm not mistaken the... More

Comfortable budget hotel with fridge, breakfast and wifi, opposite Santa Maria Novella; our room very quiet. Helpful, friendly staff, (Maria and co). Easy walk to centre of Florence and Ponte Vecchio.

Took a while to find the hotel as hidden off the main road. Nice and clean, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Area seems seedy but its kept busy with tourists so does not feel threatening. Its a perfect location to see Florence on foot and close enough to everything just on the fringe of the city.

We were looking for a budget hotel close to the train station Santa Maria Novella and close to the city, getting good service and a great location was a concern but luckily we read some good reviews about this and we made a reservation for a Saturday night stay on our way to Venice. First of all, it's less than... More

The room was fine, and spacious. Wifi a little unreliable. Staff really excellent. I did not eat in the hotel, but I understand the breakfast is great. One small issue was that the hotel itself was hard to find, and not well marked on the Via Luigi Alamanni. The hotel is close to the station, which is both a good... More

Great location, near the station, near the central part of Florence. Great service, the breakfast was really good for being Italy :) They had both cheese and ham and eggs! not only bread and jam as we are used to! So big plus for this! The room was spatious and fresh and the bathroom aswell. The bed was a bit... More

After wandering around the train station for an hour in the heat we finally found the location of this hotel, A good location but for some reason my gps could not find it. The neighborhood in the evening is a bit seedy, during the day it seemed fine. Once checked in and in our room, we discovered that our a/c... More

We are a family of four and just stayed here. The pictures do not represent the actual condition of the hotel. We definitely expected more. We stayed in a quad which was very small as was the bathroom. Barely enough room for the luggage. The saving grace was the staff who was very friendly and provided a nice breakfast in... More

The location of the hotel is absolutely great: about 200 metres from the Santa Maria Novella train station. It's a perfect hotel if you're arriving to Florence by train or by the airport bus and if you are going to make day trips to the nearby cities such as Pisa or Siena. The bathroom was large, clean and in good... More
