“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

This was the biggest hotel room we stayed at on our trip. It was clean and updated very nicely. The only negative was the bath tub was dirty and the cold water in the tub was not working. Breakfast was very good and the hotel is close to everything.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

The hotel was wonderful, with charming décor and clean, comfortable rooms. The front desk staff was great and so helpful with reservations, directions, suggestions and general friendliness. They were fun and patient with four old women. The breakfast was good and we also enjoyed the use of the sitting area in the lobby to meet and plan. The valet parking service gave prompt service for pick-up and delivery. I would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have fireplaces.

We stayed here in November and were very pleased. The hotel is in a fabulous location - close to the station and a lovely ten minute walk into central Florence along the river. This daily walk added to our enjoyment of our visit as it was so pretty. We found the staff very helpful and, on the whole, friendly (particularly the chap we saw most often - he helped us a lot with maps, directions, calling a cab, etc so thank you to him). The room was very clean, large and well furnished. The beds were comfortable. I was a bit worried when our room was next to the lift but it did not disturb us at all. If I had to say one thing, it was that the room was quite cold but it was November! Breakfast was absolutely satisfactory. I would recommend this hotel and hope to one day return.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed two nights in this hotel and it was an excellent choice. The room was so Florentine and a real change from the usual. From the chandelier overhead light to the filigree bed head one could not help but be aware of being in Florence. The bed was comfortable and the room had plenty of space for luggage. The bathroom was a delight with lovely tiling and an excellent shower and the usual shampoo, etc. The welcome was warm and the staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to eat nearby. The hotel is located just a bit too far from the station to walk there with luggage (for us) but the taxi fare was only €10. The only comment we have is that the steps at the hotel and the non automatic doors make getting luggage in and out a bit difficult. Overall though, this was a great place to stay and an excellent choice if staying in Florence.

The rooms at this hotel were spacious and beds extremely comfortable. Breakfast was a bit lagging, though. The gentleman at breakfast was very helpful, but the men handling the front desk were a bit rude. It's conveniently located about a 10 minute walk away from the train station and about a 15 minute walk from all the major landmarks. Great rooms, mediocre service.

Small hotel ,well located. The rooms were of a decent size ,slightly jaded but that added to the character .Our room was located at the front of the building , very quiet. The management were very efficient and check in went smoothly as we were a party of eight. Unfortunately the bar was closed during our stay ,a little disappointing. Breakfast was mediocre.
