Stayed here for 3 nights, staff really nice and helpful. Area safe and close to shops, bars & restaurants. We stayed in Junior Suite Split Level, bed comfy with good quality linen. A real pain having to go down stairs to use loo in the middle of the night but that's not a big deal. Room is dull and sofa...

We were thrilled with this small boutique hotel - converted Convent, with all the original features just beautiful. The location was superb,just far enough from Duomo but easy to walk in every day. The rooms are lovely and all very different. We went for some amazing meals that the reception recommended each night, some local to the hotel some on...

Loved being in a historic bldg. The room was very nice - but the hotel was not very close to the center of town - not too far - but not right in the middle of things. A strange rule - you are not allowed to eat in your room - might have something to do with the fact age...

A nice Historic Hotel located near all what you want to see in Florence. The Room was clean and the Personal friendly. The Bathroom we think needs a renovation. Breakfast and Service was as we wanted it.

A former convent retaining many original features. Set in a quiet location just five minutes walk from the Duomo. We were upgraded to a suite which was very spacious. Comfy bed, good quality linens and excellent staff. Breakfast was plentiful with cold meats, cheese, fruit, yogurt, fresh bread and scrambled eggs. Would recommend the hotel.

Very charming little hotel in the centre, 10 min walk to main square and ponte vecchio. Staff was friendly and room spacious, with overlooking mezzanine. Room was also a depandance in the internal courtyard. Very pretty! Definitely worth staying again.

Room (19...) was nothing short of fantastic but the smell of cigarette was everywhere, which was disappointing, especially since I always ask for a non smoking room. Even though I asked if it would be possible to take care or reduce the problem, nothing was really done unfortunately. On the good side, the breakfast and the restaurant space were great...

Not on a busy street - away from the noise but close to attractions. As in many of the historical hotels it would not be convenient for those having trouble with stairs but offers a glimpse into the past in exchange. Breakfast was very good and staff helpful.

Wonderful location, very helpful staff, delicious breakfast. Fun to have a bar on sight. Only downside was the stairs though the bell person was always ready to accommodate us. Laura at reception was especially helpful, printing our boarding passes, suggesting restaurants, arranging tours,

Besides being a wonderful hotel it is the staff that makes a difference ... everyone from the front desk to the bus boys could not do enough to make our stay outstanding. This is a converted convent, but you would never know it. Clean and modern, with a wonderful morning buffet. Well located.
