Stayed here for four nights in a modern triple room. Room was on the second floor, very clean, good shower, well serviced. Staff were always helpful, breakfast was good, though the hot food ran out towards the end of service. Although the hotel is on a busy street the shutters are very effective and the air conditioning works well. Would... More

I found online directions to this hotel from SMN train station and was insanely lost for 2 hours. You can imagine my surprise when I finally took a taxi and discovered it is right around the corner from the station! Very easy walk for most!

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

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
