“Modern Cosmopolitan Hotel Near Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had booked this hotel for our last night in Tuscany, after staying at a B & B previously. We had a very early flight out in the morning, and decided it would be easier to stay close to the airport. Staff was very helpful, room was large and clean. We left too early to have breakfast there, and they even reduced our room cost a little. It didn't give us the feel of being in Tuscany (it could have been in the U.S. for all the "cultural differences") but it suited our needs for that night very well.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I stayed here twice, always for business, and I highly recommend it. The personnel is polite and attentive always ready to help and give suggestions. The rooms are quite big compared to average hotels standards, all new and bright with spotless bathrooms. Breakfast was good, I found everything I wanted and room service was punctual and still warm. The restaurant is not impressive but if you stay in a business hotel in periphery of Florence you are probably not expecting the gourmet experience of you life! I even tried their gym and I can say that many five stars hotel don't have a gym like this: they have several running and weights machines all brand new.
I am specifying that this is a business hotel simply because of the location which is not central. If you don't mind taking taxi or public transportation (I do think they also offer a shuttle service to the center) or if you travelling with an organized tour you'll be fine. But if you want to walk around for sightseeing, it's not ideal since it's quite far from downtown. Anyhow I highly suggest it to anybody travelling to Florence, specially on business.

Room Tip: Rooms don't have a view so it doesn't really matter what you choose, they all look the same!

Quiet area of town and closer to the airport than downtown. Free indoor parking is clean, spacious and safe. Large clean rooms and helpful Front Desk staff.
Seems to be a good hotel to accommodate large groups/conferences.

Room Tip: Close the electric shutters all the way down to completely block out the early morning sun or just t...

Highly recommended, it exceeded my expectation. every body in the hotel was polite and helpful, free WIFI and breakfast, the restaurant also served good dinner. it is not in the city center, I took the bus, it is a 10 minutes walk to the bus stop and 15 minutes ride. Airport is 5 to 10 minutes away depending on the time of the day. Also very nice GYM.

Room Tip: I had a standard room and it was a good size room even by US standard.

We recently stayed at this impressive looking hotel as part of a bus tour around Italy.After 2weeks of minute , substandard rooms, it was a joy to stay.The oversized rooms are well appointed with a king sized bed and ample storage space to unpack the suitcases.The bathroom was sparkling clean and quite luxurious . What's more, wifi was free and reliable and available in our room.There is a Bar to enjoy a drink with fellow travelers, with ample lounge chairs placed throughout the Lobby area.Breakfast was served in a spacious room with a good variety of choice.Reception staff were helpful and efficient.We would definitely stay again.

I traveled to this hotel for work. The reception staff is stellar and everyone that works here is professional, courteous, and helpful. The room itself is bland with a minimal amount of amenities, however it is extremely clean. Only 1 towel for the shower and thinner towels for the bidet and sink; no lotion or hair conditioner. There is a nice TV (which I did not use) however be aware there is no clock or ironing board available in the room. The walls are very thin as the tenant in the room next door snored so loud I could hear him with my earplugs in.

This is a nice enough hotel, however it does not rate 5 stars for the lack of amenities.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine as it is relatively quiet. I choose to stay away from the elevator to minimize fo...

This hotel is below 100euros a night including breakfast. Its a 4 star hotel which is located about 3Km from the City center. Its basic but modern with great staff. Rooms can be a little noisy as there are no carpets in the hotel. All marble floors throughout. Nothing to shout about in terms of facilities but never the less a good cheap stop over hotel. Big rooms , Everything looks new and well kept. Restaurant is not very welcoming but the food is very good and very reasonable. Room service is a good choice. If you are only considering using the hotel as a place to sleep then this may be a good valued choice.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same other than the lower floors which have balconies.
