This hotel is exactly far away enough from the crowds to feel relaxing while being only a 10 minute walk from main attractions. Also being close to the train station was handy, as we took a train to Rome after our stay. The staff was welcoming, the property in great shape, and the room amazing. In full disclosure, we were...

We stayed here with 2 kids. First, the location is so convenient especially if you're arriving by train. It is < 10 minutes walk from the station. The piazza is fairly quiet even at night but there are people who gather, as there are restaurants around. It is walking distance to the Duomo and we were able to walk to... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and had a great stay. Comfortable beds with a beautiful marble bathroom that were kept scrupulously clean by the housekeeping staff. Very helpful and friendly reception staff and breakfast was more than plentiful with hot and cold food available until 10.30. If we ever came back to Florence we wouldn't hesitate to stay here...

This is possible one of the most friendly welcoming and luxurious hotels that I have ever stayed in in Europe. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly , the location was a three minute walk to the duomo or the train station and right next to a tour meeting point , it wasn't noisy at night and the rooms were...

Our room was really comfortable, great pillows, marble bathroom with lonely big shower and tea and coffee making facilities - they provided free... More

We spent four nights here whilst exploring the city. The location is great, with most attractions within an easy walk. The staff were welcoming and our room very comfortable. Tea and coffee-making facilities are provided and the in-room bar is not unreasonably priced. We took a junior suite with a view across to the magnificent Santa Maria Novella church. Breakfast...

We stayed here for two nights in July. We liked the location - close to the train station and walking distance to everything. The hotel is a bit of a maze with three buildings connected to one. We had to take Two elevators to our room. The room was large and had a view of the church. The air conditioning... More

The hotel is beautiful and is close to the train station. Taxi availability is great. And is a 5 minute walk to the Duomo. Breakfast was excellent and had many choices. Staff was professional and really wanted to help you to find your way around city. We left for the airport at 0400 in the morning and the staff had... More

They provided a machine for tea, and told me they would bring coffee for me to my room and never did. To me that is a... More
