“Efficient Business Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Well located for business traveller, just outside the highway SCANDICCI exit, it's efficient also for reaching the city center (about 15mins by bus).
It's a business hotel: quite minimalist in the services, but working well.
PROs: friendly staff, great breakfast, not very high rates, parkings
NEGs: complimentary internet connection, at least wirelless, would be welcome in the room rate

Simple hotel located at the fringe of Florence. Rooms are small but clean and well decorated and up-to-date furnishing.  pretty cozy inside the room. The bathroom is clean and well equipped too. Nothing much around the hotel.

Limited breakfast selection.

The Hotel is good, the location is bad but if you have a car you can go the places you want. However the BAD point is to accept they explore you by making you pay EUR 7,00 per 1 hour of wi-fi in the lobby!
This is not an option!

This hotel was a great choice to stay in Florence for 2 nights. We needed a clean, comfortable hotel to stay and we had a car, so this was really handy. Its about 15 minutes from downtown, so keep that in mind. Bed was comfortable and the room was small and cozy. The bathroom is important to us, and it was very nice and clean, with modern installations. Parking is free.

Our friends paid 300 eur a night for another hotel downtown, and in our opinion it was not worth it.
The breakfast is plentiful, with a nice selection of cereals, fruits, pastries, and cold meats and cheeses. The people at the reception are nice and helpful.

If you want to explore Florence for a few days and need a reasonable, comfortable option with yummy breakfast, then go for it!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2010

We booked this hotel because we were driving to Florence and so needed parking. For this it was great. But unfortunately the hotel is not well connected to Florence by public transport and so we had to drive into the city.
As the hotel was located outside of the city and not close to any places to eat, I expected there to be a restaurant but there wasn't. We drove to a restaurant (a short drive away) called Calypso which was very good.
The hotel itself was everything we needed. Really comfortable beds and good, modern bathroom. Unfortunately no milk for tea but we got some from reception. Breakfast was good with some selection of meats, yohurts, cakes etc. I think they could of done with more staff working as some of the foods needed re-stocking towards the end of the breakfast.
