“Beautiful attention to detail, central, clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Gorgeous decor, very helpful staff, clean spacious room, nice breakfast (noticed a few occasions of staff using bare hands to 'tidy' the food up throughout breakfast time... Bit off putting, but am sure it happens elsewhere too). Handy location for Duomo and Academia. Fab restaurant on same street - Fuoco Matto?
Service is the key to this place and attention to detail. Very open to suggestions and manager met guests personally.

The room was clean, breakfast was great and convenient location. Dated property and we had problems with our shower clogging. We were showering with water up to our ankles. Average hotel. We stayed 4 nights in 2013.

In Florence you can walk everywhere - and you should because the city is beautiful. Of course it helps to stay in a hotel close to some of the most importante sites, and that is the best asset of this hotel: 5 min to the Duomo, 10 min to the Palazzo Vecchio, 15 min to the Galleria degli Uffizi. The rooms are also comfortable and clean and the staff are friendly. To improve: a little more variety of choices for breakfast.

No parking space but the internet is good, the breakfast is the best I had in 4 other hotels in Italy and the rooms were very good. Full of nice details. Both rooms (the simple and the luxury) are very nice and the cleaning is spotless. It's 7 minutes away walking from the Accademia (Michelangelo's David). Near to lots of cafes and restaurants. Recommended.

We stayed for around three weeks in February after moving from the UK to live and teach in Italy for a year. As an introduciton to Florence, you could do no better! The decoration while modern is beautiful. The rooms are very large for Italy's standards and well equiped for a wheelchair user (as I am). It's location is perfect for closeness to all the main sights of Firenze without the craziness that is city life. However, the outstanding quality of the hotel is it's staff. The reception staff will go beyond to organise whatever you need, whether flowers and prosseco in your room to locating you a wheelchair!
Make sure also to attend Friday's happy hour. Also in San Marco square just to the right of the hotel, there is the most wonderful cafe 'San Marco' which provides a lovely appertivo for 8 euros with drink every night- well worth a visit!

The hotel is worth the room price. It's located in the historical centre, 15 minutes walking distance from Duomo (main Cathedra squerel)

I stayed a couple of times in this property, the rooms were nice and quiet, with comfy beds and spacious restrooms. Some rooms have a very nice view on the town, ask for them. Price was very reasonable for this quality. An high point was the breakfast, served by a very professional waiter up to a remarkable late time for this kind of hotel. By the way, thanks to Viron for his kindness!
