Very happy with the hotel and the services. Whatever was promised and whatever they could do further to make your stay comfortable, they do. The lady at the reception gave us a lot of her time to give details about places to visit and places to eat. She helped us plan our day trip for the next day as well,... More

We received a friendly welcome and was given a room across the street with our own balcony. We also had access to the kitchen and washing machine. We were surprised that breakfast was not included, however we did receive a reduced rate for breakfast at a nearby bakery. It was very good and friendly. The receptionist provided helpful ideas for... More

I thought this was a hostel. The room is great size (all are different) location is fantastic (half block from train and bus, great market across the street, walk to EVERYTHING in under 30 minutes) and price is good (can not believe how expensive Florence is!) and free, dependable wifii. But this is not three star hotel. Furniture and hotel... More

We stayed here for two nights in room 5 and it was huge, clean, had decent wifi, and had a big tv. The reception gave us incredible recommendations for dinner spots - both seemed like hidden gems with mostly locals. We will definitely go back here.

We chose this hotel because of the location, 3 min to the station and walking distance to the duomo, and the cost. We were not disappointed. The hotel was easy to find and the rooms were surprisingly big. We were placed on the road, so had a view of the street from our small balcony, which was nice. Only issue... More

Nice hotel that is near train station. Great hospitality and provides free wifi and breakfast set at cafe. With Sky TV, it is a bonus! Highly recommended especially those who come by train! Walking distance to Duomo.

For the price we couldn't have been happier with this last minute booking. Great location right near the Santa Maria Novella (Florence's main train station) and easy walking distance to all the main sites. We stayed on floor 5 and had sweeping views over Florence including the magnificent Duomo. Staff were lovely and the breakfast at a local cafe was... More
