Friendly staff, good breakfast, acceptable accommodations. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The electric outlet in the bathrooms wouldn't hold a US converter and there were no other electrical outlets near mirror. While the hotel offered free wi-fi, the signal was very poor.

Good quality hotel. Nothing fancy, but very good value for money. Quiet location, but a bit of a trek from the railway station/town centre. Breakfast was very good. Would be happy to go back in the future!

The best thing about this hotel was the breakfast. Plenty of food and choice from fruit salad to salami! The staff in the hotel were pleasant, efficient and helpful. We had to ask to change our room immediately on arrival due to a noise coming from a fuse box. There was no problem about this. It would be nice to... More

Nice and quiet hotel. Location is perfect, everything is on walking distance. Very friendly staff, I could print out my boarding pass for free. Breakfast was fine, nothing special. Rooms is okay, nice bed.

Enjoyed our stay in this hotel which was clean and comfortably appointed. Free wifi was very welcome. Breakfast was standard and adequate for our needs. Stayed two nights before continuing our coach tour of Italy.

This was a very nice hotel, rooms were clean and comfortable. The front desk service was great. We did not get a chance to eat in the restaurant, although we heard it was great. The bar was small, with a shared bartender with the restaurant, so there was usually a good wait to get a drink, but otherwise, very nice.... More

This is basically a clean, standard (nothing fancy) hotel located near San Marco square and about a 15 minute walk along Via Cavour straight to the Duomo. The staff at the desk were accommodating and helpful, the rooms were clean, and breakfast was fine with hard boiled eggs, meats, and cheeses. Our main issue was that we came back to... More

Very good localization, near from the Florence's most important touristic atractions, like Galleria degli Uffizi and Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. Its possible go walking for all this place from the hotel. The breakfast is really good. The rooms are very smart and huge. Id like to return there!

We stayed for two nights at the Athenaeum and it was perfect. A great location, about 5 - 10 minute stroll to the centre of Florence. Quiet location, lovely spacious room and we were made very welcome. The breakfast was delicious, everything you could wish for and we didn't need to eat again until the evening. The rooms were very... More

This hotel is a bit further north than the Duomo and most of the restauarants and attractions but it's still walkable and I highly recommend renting a bike to get around as you can see the whole city this way. The upside is that it is very quiet in the area at night and away from all the college kids... More
