We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is clean and functional and service is very friendly. The rooms are perhaps a little tired looking and fairly small. But it does the job! Breakfast is adequate. The courtyard is a pleasant place to chill out in. However contrary to other reviews, I wouldn't say it is particularly central- a good... More

This is a fine hotel located two blocks from the Duomo town center. Everything is well within walking distances. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The shower was a little tight for a broad shouldered man but otherwise, quite efficient. Not being a fan of continental breakfasts, we were disappointed with the breakfast but the servicing staff made up for... More

The hotel was clean and easy to get too. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Our room itself was great but was very noisy. We could hear buses/cars/people talking late at night and early in the morning. We did enjoy our stay and the location was great, easy to get too from the train station.

Hotel is walking distance to all major attractions. Very close to the train station. Pleasant check-in, attendants were very nice and informative. Good and large variety of breakfast selections. Room small, little out-dated, but everything in the room was extremely clean. Two days is enough to see the city.

After a not-so-good experience at another place in Florence, we happened upon this wonderful oasis of welcome, efficiency, and comfort. We somehow ended up in a suite, which was cheaper than the tiny dump we had just escaped from. A large lounge and dining area and a large bedroom (both with floor to ceiling windows), a balcony, and two large... More

Bathroom is marble and tile with tub as well as shower. Breakfast was very nice with scrambled eggs and bacon served every morning in addition to buffet that included pastries,... More

We came to florence after visiting rome. I had the most fun visiting this part of Italy! The restaurant attached to the hotel is also excellent. The staff are very friendly, and can communicate in English very well! The location is perfect, a little removed from the city havoc. Every attraction is within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel... More
