We had 2 nights here, 16th & 17th May 2015. So convenient to the S.M.N. Railway Station and Mirko and his mother, Anna, made our Mother and Daughter stay very enjoyable. Lovely room and very good value.

This property is NOT RECOMMENDED Before I go on my negative rant... please check out the NUMBER NINE FIRENZE HOTEL. I rebooked them into this property and I couldn't have chosen a better property. The hospitality at this hotel was amazing! I can't rate it highly enough! Full review details under the property on Trip Advisor. I booked this property... More

Good morning, Frankly, we are very difficult to answer this review as who wrote it has neither seen or had any experience with the hotel. We face the second negative review in six years of work under our management, this probably means that not all as bad as you say ... Customers came in saying that usually travel only 6-star... More

It's a good hotel on the second floor with an elevator and a stones throw away from the train station but in a quiet clean street. The staff is friendly and they have all the amenities we needed. The duomo is just a 10 minute walk. The hotel is nice and clean and the room and bathroom was spacious enough... More

Really friendly, helpful staff that showed us how to get to all the main places we should see in our couple of days in Florence. Room was very clean and comfortable with good air con for a good nights sleep as the weather was roasting! Considering what we paid, great value, and so close to the centre of the city,... More

Lovely friendly hotel. Spacious room that fits a double bed and 2 singles for the kids. It even has a little balcony. Bathroom is very modern and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they even printed out my museum tickets on their printer. Excellent location too for the train station and the key sights in the city.

For me it was first time to see many hotels in a single building, but this is very normal in Italy. Nostalgic feeling when you enter the lift (Very Old but properly working) Very personalized service within Hotel, even with almost no staff (Common in Italy) they want to address all your requirements and succeed also. Very close to Florence... More

The hotel itself is really nice with comfortable beds and bathrooms. The only problem is that once you arrive there you realise that it's in a building with two other hotels and an elevator to all floors. But once inside the scene changes 360 and you can start to relax.

Stayed 4 nights with family in a room arranged for 5. Given the lack of family hotels in Italy in general, that was a good deal. The room was, I think, originally for 3, and they added 2 cots for the kids. It got a little cramped, but still we had a nice rest all together. The location is great... More

1. Great location--less 5-minute walk from Florence station, and many bus stops 2. Friendly staff--we had to catch an early train to Rome, and the staff went out of their way to prepare breakfast half an hour earlier than it is usually served. 3. Strong wifi 4. Cleanness 5. Very reasonable price
