“Can Hardly be called an hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Outside the city,nothing else in the area ,no restaurant,internet not working,phone in the room not working,and the staff did not try to solve the problems.We had to go and change the phones between rooms in order to make a phone call. At breakfast,there was not enough staff and there was no food. the only positive thing i can say about this hotel is that it is clean.

We stayed for 1 night and overall it was ok. The hotel is outside the city in industrial area, so if you don't have a car I wouldn't recommend to stay there. There are no restaurants or pizza nearby, you need to drive to find smth. A room was clean and basic as well, almost no furniture, just a bed and desk.

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

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!
