We rented a 1 bedroom, 2 level apartment and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Had reserved 2 nights and due to Air France strike, had to call the day before arrival and tell them we couldn't get there on time. Staff were understanding and sympathetic and did not charge us for that 1st night even though it was... More

I found this on Trip Advisor and decided to book here for our three days in Florence. The hotel is very close to the Train station, go down Via Nazionale and turn left on Via Faenza and the hotel is a little ways on the left hand side of the street. You go through a tunnel (which is entrance to... More

We rented a one bedroom, two level apartment. The furnishings were average, bed OK but a duvey would have been nice. Good sized bathroom, no bathtub, full kitchen which we used as the Central market was close to buy fresh fruit, veggies, meat and cheeses. Walking distance to the main square where the cathedral and main art galleries and museums... More

My wife and I stayed here last month during our Europe trip after some helpful Tripadvisor research. We had a one bedroom apartment which was on three levels and very spacious . This property is a quiet oasis where you can escape the crowds when you come home from the days tripping around. Good restaurants nearby and pubs also. Laundromat... More

We stayed a week and it was wonderful. The staff was so nice and helpful. The breakfast was unbelievable, a lot of variety and so good. The location was unbeatable, just blocks from the train station on a cobblestone street. Great restaurants and shopping just steps away. Walkable to any part of the old city but just far off the...

This hotel is easy to find and only minutes from the railway station. All major attractions are walkable but your also right by the subway and open air bus stops. We had an apartment style room that was spacious, clean and homey. Good wifi connection and very quiet at night. It has everything you could need/want! The staff is truly... More

Family run staff went out of their way to help during our week stay. Close to all city sights. Especially close to train station and tour starts. Would definitely return. Breakfast fresh with wide selection of food to make any culture pleased. Great restaurants next to entrance.

We got a last minute booking on booking.com and selected this hotel based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. We had a huge room (we were travelling with 3 children and 2 adults). our only disappointment was that we were not staying longer. Be aware that it's not as expensive as it may appear on various other websites. We... More
