It was so so. Not worth a stay. The only reason you would come here is for the location. By the leather market, and Santa Maria Novella train station. But it is very expensive and nothing is included. Everything is an extra price. We had to pay extra for WiFi that didn't even work, couldn't eat in our room, can't... More

This place really depressed me. On the positive side, the rooms were very large. The decor is old and depressing, it looks like something that has seen better days. The service was really poor and the internet non-existent. You had to go to the desk to try and get on line not very practical.

This is a 3* hotel and that level but perfectly fine for what it is. Rooms were clean, breakfast was a good varied continental and reception were friendly. You would expect to get a safe included but a cost of £2.50 per day is nominal. The location is great for the station but about 25 min walk to the river.... More

The staff were really pleasant and very helpful. Room a bit dated and bathroom small. Rooms were cleaned every day. No bar. The location was ok about 15 minute walk to the Coliseum and 5 minutes to the metro.

This is a creepy over priced place with rude aggressive staff, dirty rooms and a general bad feeling. The breakfast area is crowded and the fare is basic. If you just need a place to sleep for one night then maybe it's ok, but I am sure you can do a lot better.

My stay at this hotel was unfortunately tainted by the unbelievably rude behaviour of the reception staff. From the minute I checked in the attitude was just please get away, you are disturbing us. No welcome or how can I help you. Unbelieveable. The first night I stayed, the air conditioner was not working in my room. I was moved... More

The room did not look clean, the Air conditioner did not work. It is around a 15 minute walk away from the train station SMN, which was what we needed, but there are other hotels around. The breakfast was good.

The hotel is well located close to train station and you can walk to main attractions too. The room was big and the bathroom very fancy. Breakfast was very good but quite crowded. No wifi unfortunately wich is a shame nowadays. But I would stay there again! And staffs were nice too!!
