I stayed here during the first half of July. My travel party consisted of 3 adults and a 1.5 year old. The hotel is easily accessible on foot from the SMN train station. Less than a 10 minute walk and we found the hotel quite easily. The staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly throughout our entire stay. The hotel is operated by the owner and his family and they take great pride in their work. We felt at home from the moment we arrived.
Our room was a "Triple" and consisted of a twin size bed and a large queen (2 twins pushed together). The room was quite spacious by European standards and featured high ceilings which showcase original frescoes on the ceiling. The bathroom was adequate and offered basic toiletries. Housekeeping was prompt and did an excellent job freshening the room. The room did have AC though, the efficiency of it left something to be desired given the summer temperatures. The free wifi in the room worked great. The walls were a little thin as I could hear the door bell quite frequently in teh evenings as well as the morning breakfast prep work. The daily breakfast at the hotel offered little to no variety but, was a pleasant way to start your day.
The hotels location offers easy access to most major sites in Florence. Within less than a 5 minute walk we found ourselves staring up at the Duomo. There is a small market next door which offers a variety of beverages and snacks at a reasonable price. There are also quite a few restaurants and bars situated near the hotel which, we found to be more affordable than the ones located in the higher traffic (tourist) areas.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to family and friends traveling to Florence. I cannot say enough good things about the staff! Everyone we encountered was professional and extremely friendly and helpful. We were a bit sad to say good-bye of the day of our departure!
