“Welcoming, clean and convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We loved this little palazzo hotel in central florence. Just ten minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella train station (where all the airport buses arrive), and five minutes from the Duomo, you are within easy walking distance of the entire old city.

The hotel is the first floor, and the rooms must have very thick walls and good windows as it was always peaceful. Everything is spotlessly clean, and the room is given a decent refresh every day.

Arianna and Paolo were both lovely, making us feel totally at home but without fussing around us too much. Arianna is enthusiastic about ice cream and gave us one or two fantastic tips for where to buy the very best scoops.

Breakfast is self service but a proper coffee is provided if you ask. Good range of cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, bread and pastries.

Overall this hotel is highly recommended!

We stayed here for 4 nights. We had a lovely, light and airy room, nicely decorated. The communal areas in the hotel are also very attractive – there is a comfortable sitting room with deep sofas, nice reception area and lovely dining room with ceiling frescos. We enjoyed a nice buffet breakfast each morning with a good variety of cereals, croissants, etc. It took us around 15 mins to walk from the train platform to the hotel. Once there it is very well located within a few mins walk of the Duomo, the Accademia, Uffizi and other main attractions. The hotel is all on the first floor. There is no lift from street level but the receptionist kindly carried my case up the lovely marble stairs for me and there is a chair lift for guests who need it. The staff are all very helpful, booked our tickets into the galleries by phone and were generally very friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed staying here.

Stayed 3 nights. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Room and bathroom are large and clean. Bed is very firm which was an issue for my wife. Has air conditioning but not an elevator. It is up a rather long flight of stairs if mobility is an issue. Hotel is located in the heart of the tourist area,within a mile or less of major attractions. Good breakfast in an impressive dining room. Confusing TV system with only 2 or 3 stations in English. Bought the Firenze pass to avoid lines. Enjoyed the Academia, Uffizi, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, Duomo and Baptistry, Pallazzo Vecchio, Gallileo Museum, Medici Musuem and Chapel, and night scene on the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Had many good meals including very inexpensive lunches at Trattoria Casalinga, Ristorante Leonardo and Mercato Centrale. Enjoyed the profiteroles while people watching at Rivoire near Palazzo Vecchio. Had a free buffet with a bottle of wine at the Golden View Open Bar across the Arno River.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. The room and bathroom was spacious despite decor being on the spartan side. As mentioned by other reviewers, the staff are warm and attentive - we were greeted by Paolo on arrival and he helped with our heavy luggage up the long flights of stairs to reception.

Good: The location of the hotel is such that you are not immediately swamped by tourists upon exiting the hotel; yet both the Duomo and Accademia/Statue of David are within 5-10min walking distance. The street that the hotel is located on a road that pretty much becomes the main artery to the important attractions.

Bad: If I was to knit-pick, I would have preferred more variety to the breakfast. Public transport is somewhat hard to get to for those with heavy luggage.

Would we recommend this hotel? Definitely yes.

The staff is very friendly and one member, Paolo, is a certified tour guide. He took us on a 3 hour walking tour of Florence. It was well worth the time and money, he is very knowledgeable and goes at your pace. The hotel is located within walking distance of all the sights, but still quiet in the evening. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. Would stay here again in a heart beat!

We stayed at this hotel during a 2 week tour of Italy, and it did not disappoint! The hotel itself is easy to find, and upon our arrival, the staff was very warm and welcoming. We immediately felt at home. Our room was very spacious, with a wonderfully large bathroom! The water pressure was also fantastic. Breakfast was just fine, although the coffee came out of a self-serve machine, which was somewhat disappointing, but that was the only thing we didn't like.

The hotel was very centrally located, and about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station (what an adventure to lug roller bags through the cobblestone streets!). A quick right-hand turn out of the hotel and you're stumbling upon the Duomo; and the Gallery Accademia is a quick left-hand turn. The hotel is also close to a Pharmacy, ATM, and little grocery store.

We could not have asked for anything more, and will absolutely stay at this hotel again. My only regret is that we could have stayed longer.
