I stayed at this hotel for one weekend and would definitely stay there again. The staff is very, very helpful and friendly, The location is fantastic, everything is nearby, you can also go back to the (nicely airconditioned) hotel room for a quick rest and then go out again. The rooms are small, but clean. The hotel itself has some... More

The hotel seems like it was the swankiest place around in 1965, but it hasn't been updated much since then. The general sense of the maintenance was that it is not good, so the elevator scared me. The bed was two hard single beds pushed together without a topper, so you couldn't sleep in the middle where the two edges... More

The hotel has a great location next to the Medici Chapel, and within a short walk to all other Florence hot spots. The room I had was very simple, but clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and very service minded, and breakfast is served in an adjacent room in an old Florentine palazzio. They have a deal with nearby garage,... More

Ok for single room for a night. Small bathroom with tiny shower and minimal flow of water . Breakfast was sufficient for my needs. The staff were helpful and friendly. Central location an advantage. I guess this hotel is similar to all in this area-and there are a lot-so would probably return unless I get a better price elsewhere for... More

A small hotel near the train station. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and tries to be helpful. Breakfast is average but the ladies who serve it are very friendly and efficient which makes up for the lack of selections available. WiFi is free but a bit cumbersome. Need separate password for each device which need to... More

We were satisfied with this hotel. The location is fantastic, very central to everything, which is pretty much exactly what you're paying for. The rooms are a bit dreary, and though the bathrooms were large enough I found the toilet and shower a bit cramped. Breakfast was nothing really special - only continental (cold) no eggs or meat. With that... More

I would recommend staying in this hotel if you are visiting Florence. Location was great and it had everything you could possible need. The room was small but it didn't bother us as we were only there to sleep. The bathroom was a good size and the shower/tub was larger than we had in most places.on our trip to Italy.... More
