The hotel is 15 mins walk from the station and the main area - the dome. Hence there is a lot of walking involved. The rooms were nice with a big bathroom, breakfast was yummy especially the cream filled croissants. The staff was helpful too. No supermarkets nearby. Overall it was a decent experience. The hotel charged us 4 Euros... More

I stayed here last July and the service was unreal. All the employees were always smiling and were very helpful with my stay. The taxi showed up less than five minutes and everything was very smooth. The restaurant is awesome and the atmosphere is centrally located. I loved this place!

I stayed at this hotel in April with friends and found it to be excellent. Very clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was quite acceptable. The staff could not be more helpful and directed us to local restaurants nearby. The manager was extremely helpful when we found we were missing a boarding pass just before we left for... More

Lovely big room, comfortable bed and spotless bathroom. This really was a very well appointed modern hotel. Breakfast was excellent with fruit, continental style meats and cheeses, but also some very acceptable scrambled eggs and bacon. Staff were friendly and helpful. It has a happy atmosphere. My only niggle is that I think, contrary to other TA reviews, it's more... More

Great value,service and very friendly hotel. Not right in the centre, but only 15 mins walk to Duomo. Our room was spacious and quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. This was most spacious room in entire Euro Trip .

stayed here for 3 nights on our last leg tour of italy. Location: 10-15 minute walk from the duomo and its a straight road although you have to watch out for traffic (this is florence after all!) so good location as just slightly away from the hussle and bustle of florence. Room: we stayed in room 101 which was a... More

Great value and very friendly hotel. Not right in the centre, but only 15 mins walk to Duomo, passing several essential sites north of the Duomo on the way. My room was spacious and quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. Pity about the traffic around Plazza della Libertà, but that's Italy, the most pedestrian unfriendly country in Europe. And... More

My husband and I stayed for a week in Florence at this hotel. It is very central for visiting the many wonderful sites in this amazing city. We were combining sightseeing with a visit to our son who studies in Florence. The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating when we had some difficulty with a lost bag. Thankfully we... More

We stayed for 4 nights and we should have shortened our trip to Venice and stayed longer in Florence at this hotel. The staff were the best as the hotel was. We had previously stayed in Barcelona, nice, Venice and now Florence on our way through to Rome. Undoubtably the best, staff were kind and helpful in booking tours and... More

The room was large and comfortable, staff very pleasant, for a city hotel it was very good. But the location is not great. Was not bothered about the walk into the centre there are good cheap coffee places on the way but it is something to consider when you've been walking all day and you got the 15 min walk... More
