Walked to this hotel from Santa Maria Novella Train station with our luggage. Beware of pick pockets at the station! About a 15 min walk. Shared a room with two others. There was no lift up to our room. Had to take stairs half way..With luggage it was kinda annoying. Room was large, bathroom sufficient. Air con worked fine. Fridge in the room.Free Wifi. Got a free welcome drink for 3 people and a guide book on florence. as we came on the day the bar wasn't operating, the receptionist allowed us to use it and got us some drinks which was nice of her. Again as I've noticed in the hotels i've stayed at, no coffee/tea making facilities and the buffet breakfast was ok , nicer quality than the two other hotels I've stayed at in Italy. Walking distance to sights/shops/restaurants. Small supermarket around the corner walking distance. Pleased with this hotel. Had no problems.
