This hotel is great, but the location is the best part! It is in the center of Florence! There are so many great cafes, gelato bars, and shops nearby. It is a short walk to many sites in the old city. It is a bit noisy at night, but that didn't really bother us. The room was nice and clean. We had a couple issues with our air cooler, but other than that, our stay was wonderful!

This is a small hotel with only a few rooms on the fourth floor of a city building. The location could not be better, and I would highly recommend it to you for that reason. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but clean and you are in Florence so shouldn't be spending much time in there anyway. IF YOU DRIVE TO FLORENCE PLAN WHERE YOU WILL PARK, Our Satnav sent us to a car park quite far away and we were not the only travellers rolling our suitcase for hundreds of yards across bumpy pavements.

Room Tip: The shirt of the air conditioning drowns out the nose from the street so don't worry about your...

Stayed here in the middle of June with my girlfriend, great location right in the centre of florence.. You CANNOT get a more central location than this hotel. It is perfectly placed to see everything in florence. The only downside to this hotel is the noise from outside... if people decide to shout and be unnecessarily noisy outside you may be awoken. However, i'm sure there isn't much the hotel can do about this except perhaps double glazing?
Disregarding things outside of hotel control, great little hotel and would return again.

Room Tip: Room facing the main street opposite H and M can be noisy at night, if you're a light sleeper tr...

This hotel was a little challenging to find even after entering the beautiful front door but once found proved to be a gem in the middle of Florence. It is on the 4th floor and you need to use the small lift at the end of the corridor. The position is amazing right in the middle of Florence less than 5 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio. The room was basic but clean; the bed was comfortable, the showers worked well and there was even a portable air conditioner that, although noisy, was effective. The free wifi worked excellently the first day but did not work at all on the second and on check out we were unable to pay with credit card because of this- just as well we had enough Euros on us at the time. This really was not a big issue. This was a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend this hotel- great value for money right in the middle of Florence.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had a hard time finding the hotel as we were expecting to see a big sign on the street with a hotel building. The location is excellent, in the middle of all the action in Florence, close to all the attractions and museums, and a walking distance from the bridge and the nice restaurants, cafes and gelaterias. Only the room is too small, but clean though. the lady at the reception was very nice and friendly.

Room Tip: the room with a view on the street is better than the "quiet room" with no view at all.

Location- very heart of centre. Minutes walking distance to everything in centre.
Room- Basic but satisfying for a short stay. No breakfast.
Management- Friendly and available.
Property- Clean and welcoming.
Sure to be seriously considered

Room Tip: Room no4 offers nice view of a busy road. Very quiet once the shops close and tourists retire.
