It's a super lovely family run hotel and have always been our relaxing "home" during the 8-day stay in Florence. I stayed at an apartment for with my parents and we all enjoyed it very much!! About 5-10 mins walk from train station, cozy, calm, very clean (from the room to small details like towels), friendly staff, well-equiped kitchen with... More

Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, great room, fabulous breakfasts in a lovely room, even the occasional appearance of a cat who was not averse to a fuss! Only small hitch was the original difficulty in finding it due to the dual numbering system of the houses, although fortunately the 2 number 71s are not far apart.

We picked this hotel because it was close to everything and within walking distance of the train station. However upon arriving, it was raining very hard so we took a cab. Cost for the cab including our 2 bags was about 8 euros and was worth it to not get soaked. We only stayed one night as we were on... More

We just stayed here for two nights in November 2014. We loved everything about it. The room had a loft arrangement with the single queen bed for our room being upstairs. There were two tv's, one downstairs and one upstairs in the bedroom. The room setup had a large couch in similar to a family room, separate dining area and... More

This is a beautiful hotel in an immaculately restored historic building. It is owned by a charming family, and their staff are all friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast a real feast. The station and buses to the airport are close by, as are the Duomo and other major sights. It's hard to imagine anybody... More

We stayed here for 5 days in one of their apartments (hot sure if they have non-apt accommodations). Having an apartment versus a hotel was great. May never stay in a hotel again! Sofia and the rest of the staff were great. Friendly, helpful and eager to talk with you. They recommended some great restaurants that we would have missed... More

The rooms are actually small apartments with a small kitchen, dinning area and sofa. the bedroom is an upstairs loft. But what really makes this place special is the family that runs it. they are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is fantastic with everything from cold cuts to every type of egg dish and pastry you can imagine.... More

We arrived in Florence after a short drive from Tuscany and stayed for 3 nights on our honeymoon. The service was excellent the whole time. We were greeted with a smile and reservations/arrangements/restaurant recommendations were always given to us with enthusiasm. The location was excellent. It is in the city center which means you are walking distance from everything. One... More
