“Nothing special, and wifi is an extra”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

This hotel is located outside the city of Florence, is nothing else that a place where you go, sleep and leave. And you'll soon forget it.

Pro Parking is free (average cost of parking in an hotel in Florence is 25/30 euro/night)
Pro Is not that far from Autostrada

Con You have to pay for wifi
Con Breakfast buffet is "shy" but ok if you 're not used to huge buffet

If you're staying here i and want to visit FLorence i suggest you to go with your car to Piazza resistenza in the center of Scandicci (6 min) park (for free) and take the Tramvia to hit to the heart of florence

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!
