I booked a 4 night stay on the basis of reviews on here; and I can see why it is rated so well. Really comfortable hotel in a great location, just far enough out to be crowd free but still only 15 minutes walk from the Duomo. Bus stop right around the corner to spare your feet if you prefer....

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. In a great location just far enough away from the main squares. A good 15 minute walk, especially good to walk after a large dinner! The staff are courteous and helpful. And breakfast was brilliant all you could want.

I have stayed at this hotel a total of *8 times*. I keep coming back because of proximity in Florence, but also because it is an excellent hotel. But first and foremost the staff - very friendly and accommodating. I do not speak Italian unfortunately, but they are able to understand me. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Morning breakfast... More

Great Hotel! You can walk to everything, yet you are near open parks. Florence is great, the history, art and all. But listening to live music in a park in Florence will change you. Love the place. Looking forward to returning.

i would say Paulo was the gentleman who helped us check in. We had over shot the reservation by a day and arrived there when it was raining. The front desk clerk was very kind and was able to accommodate us. Also recommended local restaurants and local places to visit. it was GREAT. Also they have english channel yay!

Rooms were large, well maintained, and very clean. I enjoyed the jetted tub upgrade several nights. The breakfast was large, fresh, and well worth it. The wifi system was a trouble, though — difficult to log in, difficult to use, and constantly logging users out. Frustrating. The distance from the main site, too, was an easy 10-15 minute walk, but this... More

Love it. Absolutely love it. What a great place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful clean and comfortable room. Wonderful breakfast. Great Bar. Stayed here for three nights in December and we felt very much at home here. Very convenient too. Close to lots of nice restaurants and a 10 -15 min walk to the centre of Florence. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November as one of our party were running the florence marathon. The hotel had taken this into consideration and laid on an early breakfast that day which was a nice touch. We also got a room with a bath for soaking afterwards which was useful. The rooms are plain but comfortable and bigger... More
