I can't say enough good things about this reasonably-priced hotel. The staff is wonderful. The hotel is a five minute walk from the main train and bus stations, yet our room (106) was totally quiet. Breakfast is fine (rolls, meats and cheeses, yogurt, cereal, etc, and always fresh fruit and cappuccino on hand) and the room offered excellent lighting so... More

This hotel was conveniently located just 5 minutes from the train station and all the attractions/ city center were all easy walking distance away. There is a grocery store to pick up some quick snacks and water just across the street. The room we got was nice, spacious and clean, but the walls are a bit thin so you can... More

The hotel is located within an easy walking distance of all the galleries, markets, shops, cathedrals and museums that are 'must see' in Florence. The staff speak excellent english, are friendly, polite and very helpful. The rooms are clean, the breakfasts excellent and all within walking distance of the train station. We would definitely stay there again.

The hotel location was excellent: A few meters into Via Nazzionale opposite SMN Train Station and a walking distance across the road to the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella. It is 5 to 10 minutes walk to various other landmarks, including: Florence Cathedral, Basilica di San Lorenzo, Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Accademia, Basilica of Santa Croce and Ponte Vecchio, to...

We stayed there for 4 nights. We love the front desk service and the hotel location. They helped us to book the tour overnight and the lady speaks fluent English. They also provide umbrellas, this is a plus for us as we encountered rainy days during our trip. The hotel situated very close to the train station (less than 5... More

Affordable place to stay in Florence. Highly recommended. The super market is just opposite to this hotel. Every attractions and shopping facilities are within walking distance. Best of all the train station is just 3 minutes walk away. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Breakfast is alright. Really enjoyed our stay here.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and they were kind to grant us our request for modern room. This hotel is really near to the Firenze SM station but you need to enter a "door" before your can find the hotel on your left. Apparently, there are a few hotels housed in the same building but finding... More

Very convenient location near the railway station and near where the buses leave for places like Lucca and Prato. Plenty of cheap and very good places to eat as the hotel is near the central market (do visit). Super friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is excellent.

It is near the train station and the river which is the main highlight of Florence. The toilet was extremely small so movement is super limited. There is a chinese restaurant opposite the hotel so if u take Chinese food frequently in your home country and u feel homesick, you know where to go. The receptionist is very helpful so... More

Dear Zuakatsu, Thanks for the compliments to the staff, we are very happy. Size is more or less equal in all rooms, but when it is possible we find a more convenient solution for a guest who wants to have more space. Our continental breakfast offers: hot drinks (espresso + American coffee, cappuccino, milk, chocolate, different kind of tea), cold... More
