We had a very nice welcome and our room was more than satisfactory. It is a very good place to be, very central for most of Florence's attractions. The lounge and bar areas are splendid, with a nice water feature in the bar. The staff are charming and helpful. The buffet breakfast has a good choice and the breakfast room has a nice view over Piazza Santa Maria Novella. The name of the hotel means, "The clock" and the is a clock and watch theme running throughout the hotel. There is no evening restaurant in the hotel but there are many good restaurants and cafes nearby. Definitely recommended.
We chose this hotel because it was very near the central railway stain at Santa Maria Novella. However, the high speed train from Verona took us to different station in Florence and we had to get a taxi. Be aware of this potential problem and make sure you get off. The high speed train doesn't stop at Santa Maria Novella and the next stop is Rome.
