“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Wonderful room. Friendly and helpful staff. Absolutely beautiful breakfasts and dinners. A five minute walk to the train which goes past a good park for the children on it's way to central Florence. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

well whoever went to Florence probably realized how expensive it is. So we only found that hotel. Looks a bit shocking from the outside and its far away from town BUT......they is a tram nearby which brings you straight in town and the hotel inside was lovely typical Italian style I even got some inspiration how to create my own bedroom ;o)) breakfast was downstairs in the restaurant.....well not overwhelmed but ok. I enjoyed staying here its clean and staff is friendly so if you have to look at your budget I would go for this one

We stayed here Oct 2013. Great location just outside of the city center. A short walk to the tram that takes you into Florence(10min ride). The room and the bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was very good. A secure parking space with a small charge. We would definately stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I was there with my wife and one baby.
The Hotel is far from the touristic spots, but there's a tram direct to there.
The Hotel is very informal. This is good, but can disappoint if you wait professionalism. I mean, the staff has good intentions, but they had no training. No doubts about that.
We made a reservation for a room with Internet access. The room 402 had in 5 days absolutely never Internet. In lobby was the Internet so so as well. I have 3 or 4 times complained without success. The room itself was ok, with old furniture, but absolutely clean.
The breakfast is ok, somedays there were no fruits. There is a Parking Area, but in an opened area, without roof.
All in all, you can save money, but if you need Internet, avoid the hotel, or at least the Room 402.

Room Tip: If you need Internet, avoid the 4th floor, or perhaps this hotel.

This hotel is out of town but is just 5 mins walk to the local tram stop - which will get you into Florence in about 15 mins.

I wish we'd eaten dinner at the adjoining restaurant as it looked great (and the breakfast buffet we ate there was very above average).

The hotel is out of town but only a few minutes walk to tram station where you can make use of this clean efficient public transport & be downtown in the thick of old FLorence in about 10mins.
The hotel itself was very clean albeit smallish room but good kingsize bed. Breakfast was adequate. Price was good at Euro63 for couple, B&B booked through Bookings.com Plenty of tourist information at reception. Found an excellent bijou cafe, Chilli Cafe nearby & Pizzeria Calypso also nearby that was inundated with locals.... all in all I would revisit this area in preference to fighting the traffic in downtown Florence

Very nice and clean hotel, nice rooms, very nice breakfast. Enjoyed staying there. It is about 10 min from train station in a tram, but we only used it a few times. Florence is very small, we always walked everywhere by feet.

Room Tip: The one we had was with windows on the street - very noisy street at night. It was 201 room.
