We based ourselves at this hotel for 12 days whilst visiting Florence and exploring Tuscany by car, it’s about 1hr drive to Siena, Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano and ideally situated. We found the train direct from Pratignone station (8 mins walk from the hotel) into Firenze SMN (25mins) excellent, it was punctual, air-conditioned and comfortable; and hugely preferable to the...

The hotel is very limited in every aspect. Our room did not have a proper shower, it was a shower head on the wall with no basin or cabin. The AC cannot be controlled. The rooms have a nice view of the pool but seeing the condition of the bathroom nobody would dare use the pool. The breakfast is horrible... More

Although the professional pictures may seem attractive, they were probably taken years ago, and have since become outdated as the hotel is being maintained at a 'just enough' level. Since the Hotel is located so close to the Highway, it's ideal for situations where you're looking for a place to sleep after hours on the road and want an early... More

We only paid £95 including. City tax for 2 nights b&b. We got a nice breakfast, staff that were generally friendly for urbaners :-) clean room, good shower. All in all great value. Gave the pool a miss as it needs a bit of refurbishing. There are some good shops locally and the number 2 bus runs into Florence from... More

The worst hotel I have ever seen. Ended up checking out after just 2 Hrs as room was inhabitable. This is a 1 maybe a 2 star hotel at most. Checked in, got in the room where we were greeted by a strong smell of mould, switched on the Airconditioner, which is very noisy but fails to blow any cold... More

Booked a double-room for three nights. It is indeed a short drive from Florence (about 10-15 minutes). We used it as a base to drive from. Parking can be tight on busy nights, but I never had a problem finding a spot for the night. The room is basic but comfortable. The bed very comfortable and (importantly for a tall... More

I stayed 1 Night in a Twin Bed room. Wifi in the room is very weak, suggest to go hotel lobby for wifi .There is a carrefour beside the hotel which I think closed at 9pm. Room is ok. The lift is super small. This lift works quite special in a way that we need to manually open the lift... More

I have never been so disrespected by a staff member in all my traveling experiences. The so called "manager" of the hotel, Alessio, was the rudest person I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. The room was clean, the hotel itself was nice, but I was yelled at and overall treated horribly by a man that clearly hates his... More

We stayed for a few nights last month, and didn't have the best time. The rooms are clean, but the toilet didn't work properly and needed help to flush, the handrails fell off the second we pulled a towel off, and the air conditioning didn't work at all -- it probably should have, given the noise it still made. There... More
