It was ok, clean with nice garden. Pleasant location, just out of the bustle, but not too far. Room was a bit dated... And shower had no edge, so half the bathroom floor flooded when using it. Basic, no major issues, but nothing to write home about

We read the reviews and saw the star rating and thought, 'Hey, we're only staying 1 night so..." Wish we stayed longer! Positives: Ground floor room was spacious with large windows, good sized bathroom and space for our serious check-in suitcases. The double-glazed windows kept out the outdoor sounds. Room was very clean and had little extras like additional blankets... More

The positives: The exterior of the hotel is impressive and it is located only a few hundred feet away from the spectacular Boboli Gardens and within walking distance (15-20 minutes) from the heart of Florence. The free parking was also a nice perk. Our room had high ceilings and shutter windows. The Receptionist who worked at night was very friendly.... More

Whilst some want to stay centrally, we decided to opt for a hotel in the leafier, quieter area by the Boboli Gardens, south of the river Arno. The hotel is indeed a classic in stature, sitting behind a huge wall in well kept gardens. It has all the charm and old world appeal we wanted. The decor is traditional and... More

This hotel is not far away from Palazzo Pitti and the city center, you need to walk 20 min and you'll be in the heart of Florence. There's a private parking place, which is pretty rare and really important in Florence. The building is a nice villa with a decent garden. Our room was normal sized and furniture was rather... More

Chose to stay here as it had parking within the hotel grounds and we weren’t disappointed. The parking was not visible from the main road, so felt very secure, also the gates are locked between 01:00 and 07:00h. Couldn’t find the hotel on our sat nav, so we made a phone call to the hotel to find that the actual... More

This is a very nice, quiet hotel, located in an old Villa, not far from Porta Romana. Service is friendly, rooms are spacious, price was fair. The only disappointment was breakfast: small selection, all cold, with low-quality yogurt, and bad cappuccino from a machine (unless you ask for the real thing from the bar!).

We went to Florence for our honeymoon and chose the Classic Hotel to stay at as it was a short walk from the city center and attractions. The hotel was quaint and beautiful with a lovely outdoor area to enjoy a drink. The breakfast was continental 'help yourselves' with fresh croissants and fruit available. The staff were so friendly on... More

Nice building, friendly staff, quiet and peaceful environment with a nice garden, reasonnable price and a free parking close to the city center, which is already worth a lot there ... Only the breakfast is a little disappointing.

We had a nightmare journey to Florence, arriving at the hotel at 5am. The manager arrived to open the gate within seconds of ringing the bell. All the staff were charming, friendly and helpful. The location is within walking distance of the centre of town, buses and restaurants. The hotel has an understated elegance. It is clean and comfortable. A... More
