This was not our first choice but the Florence Albergo website directed us here as that choice was full. Great place, friendly and helpful. They made restaurant bookings etc. they also were helpful with the complex driving regs on Sunday when we hired our car. It's also in exactly the right place for airport buses and station.

This hotel is conveniently located near the SMN Train station. We booked a room on the second floor with a street view. We had no problems with street noise. We were pleasantly surprised on the beautifully updated room and bath. The room looked and smelled clean and was serviced each day. The breakfast was a very nice surprise with wonderful... More

Convenient to the train station (although not a posh area), this small boutique hotel had great service, clean rooms and a nice breakfast buffet for the price. A few blocks away from the fabulous Mercato Centrale (food market) and all of the major attractions of Florence are within walking distance.

On our initial arrival, we had a problem trying to locate the hotel entrance. When we finally found it, we weren't very happy with how the hotel and hotel reception looked for a 3-star hotel. The environment looks dated. There was only 1 small lift taking visitors from the ground floor (where the reception resides) to the first floor. And... More

Dear Skquek thank you for your review.

We stayed here towards the end of June 2013 and would absolutely stay there again. There is just a five minute walk to the station and probably no more than 15 minutes to the square where the majority of landmarks are. The staff also made this trip great because they were so helpful and explained where best to eat etc.... More

Excellent location - just 5-minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station. A good choice for those people who don't like walk too much with their luggage. But may not be ideal for those people who want to stay in the old town since it take around 15 minutes to walk to Duomo. But the buildling where the hotel is... More
