“A hotel with soul...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here on our first night in florence. It was our wedding anniversary and we were so excited to be in such a beautiful historic building. A lovely girl on reception..(ANika I believe) was ectremely helpful and a credit to the place. After coming back from dinner, I asked for some hot water. Minutes later..a lovely waiter..came with the water and also a chilled bottle of sparkling wine. What a lovely surprise! We sipped our surprise gazing in awe at the beautiful ceiling lying on one of the most comfortable beds ever.This is a place for people who love history and rooms with quirky character that thrill the soul. It is NOT for people who want boutique, designer style. We absolutely loved it and just wished we could have stayed longer. I really hope we can return. Thank you all so much. Patricia and malcolm

I spent 3 days here with my husband. Good location, near to railway station and the Duomo.
Even from my room i can see Duomo. The staff were nice. I requested to change my room because of the noisy from my neighbourhood. The staff acted kindly and quickly.

The breakfast was just so so. Coffee was good.

Hotel is perfectly situated between The Duomo and Santa Maria Novello, just 10 minutes from the Train Station. The rooms exude old world charm. The staff could not have been nicer or more professional. Would definitely stay again.

Five friends stayed in two double rooms and one single room for two nights in July 2011. The hotel is easy walking distance from the train station and the Duomo. Very good breakfast with excellent cappuccino made on order! Our room was large with a seperate seating area (two chairs and a small table). The hotel is in an old palazzo that made the hotel even more special! There is a restaurant just opposite the hotel that we visited more than once, very convenient. We shall definitely return, thank you for a lovely stay!!

Rooms were a bit dingy. Overall friendly atmosphere at a great location. In this price range, this was a great value! Easy to find from train station. I would stay here again and would recommend to travelers on a budget!

We stayed in January for a very reasonable £50 per night. I thought this was an excellent location, just 5 mins from the train station and 5 mins to the duomo. The hotel is an old palazzo and is beautifully decorated, making the most of the natural assets of the building, beautiful wide staircases and stained glass windows. In our room the ceiling must have been 20ft high!!! Excellent spread for breakfast, you can really fill up before a day's sightseeing! Staff were all very pleasant, when arrived we asked for a dinner recommendation and the gentleman on reception gave a very good recommendation, a few mins walk away, la martinicca. Yes, the drains are a bit stinky but keep the bathroom door shut and its OK. Unfortunately I think that stinky drains probably comes with the territory when staying in a mediaeval city and a 600 year old building.
