We chose this hotel due to its location near the airport, and that a shuttle bus service was offered. In addition we enjoyed the fact that there was a restaurant and that our hotel package included a buffet breakfast. We found the reception staff to be helpful and attentive during our stay. The service in the restaurant was good. We were attended to upon entry, the daily specials and wine choices were explained as was the regular menu. This was a surprise as previous reviews have not been favourable regarding service.
Beyond that, there is nothing positive to say about the hotel. Carpets are filthy, furniture outdated, and the beds are not comfortable. The hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment. Don't let the photos fool you. Our room did not come close to any of the photographs shown.
I would not recommend this hotel. If you plan to stay at the hotel and visit Florence you will be dependent on some form of public transportation. Taxis could cost you more than 24 euros. Basically you will be wasting a minimum of an hour a day to get to the city and back. Better spend that hour sightseeing.
