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!

This was a very lovely hotel with an absolutely gorgeous rooftop terrace which has an amazing view! The staff is exceptional from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. They conveniently had a parking attendant to take our car to a nearby garage and carried our luggage up four flights of stairs to their reception area to... More

great and comfortable hotel in a convenient location with a friendly and helpful staff, a good breakfast and a terrace with a breathtaking view of florence! It was a little hard to find - just a door on a side street with buzzer to be buzzed in. The hotel is on the third floor but they offered to carry our... More

This is a lovely little hotel in Florence and perfect for a 2 night stay. What makes this hotel so nice are the staff though, they cannot do enough for you from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. When we arrived they came out, took the car, carried our luggage and once we had climbed the stairs... More

A great find! The hotel is small but very well run (feels more like staying with relatives) and its right in the heart of Florence. Yes you do need to carry your suitcases up the stairs but a bit of exercise never killed anyone (not after all the tuscan deliciousness). The rooms are nice and clean at a great value... More
