Looooved it! My husband and I stayed for 3 nights this week- our first time in Italy! The hotel is 3 flights up with no lift...they have people to help you- its no big deal! Its located right by the Duomo. Upon arrival, we were offered a drink or cafe. Then taken to our beautiful room...they had given us a... More

My wife and I stayed for a week in April, 2015. This hotel is located minutes from the Duomo and Santa Croce, great restaurants, and some of the best gelato in Italy. Incredible service by Filippo, Arturo, Andrea, and Rodolfo. They were all friendly, knowledgable and very accomodating. Free breakfast was perfect for us with a nice selection of meats,... More

There is nothing we can complain about this hotel...it provided us with a perfect stay. Firstly the location, very close to the Duomo (with a gorgeous view from the patio up on the roof) but the location didn't really matter as in Florence everything was within a twenty minute walk. The hotel is on the third floor, however not a... More

Am surprised some of the reviews said u cant see the dome from the terrace. U can see both the dome and all key monuments in florence . P.s. Its a... More

The hotel was a massive disappointment, from false promises (you can see the Dome from the balcony: our view was the backside of a large house) to bad service (instead of a twin room they only gave us one bed, the TV didn't work the first evening, the WIFI was out for more than one day) and a complete lack...

The hotel sits in a perfect location, where you can access central area easily but still be quiet during the night. It is about 20 minutes on foot from the railway station (Firenze SMN). Unfortunately it is on the third floor with very steep stairs and no lift, so it may be an issue for elderly or physically impaired costumers.... More

We enjoyed this lovely little hotel located a short walk from the centre of Florence. The hotel is three stories high with no lift so it may not be ideal for everyone. The staff are very helpful and friendly (they offer you a beverage on arrival which is always nice) and give great tips on things to see in the... More

In the heart of Florence on a small street, we were charmed the minute we walked through the large wooden door to the inner courtyard. Although the three flights of stairs were challenging, the effort was worth it. The staff is outstanding. The rooms charming. The buffet breakfast fantastic. The terrace has a awesome view of the area. Tremendous value.... More

We had a great experience and enjoyed our time. The staff was great and the terrace was beautiful. The bed was a bit hard and the doors a bit thin so we could hear people in the hall. But overall we were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our stay!
