The hotel was right next to all sightseeing in Florence! 5 Minutes to Duomo, 15 to Ponte Veccio and Pallazzio Veccio, 1 min to Saint Lorenzo Cathedral and Train Station. Our room ( 103 ) was new with a nice new bathroom, which for us was amazing as we like new clean spaces. The hotel was safe with 24 hours...

This hotel has a great location; easy walk from the train station, even if you are dragging lots of luggage. The neighborhood also had lots of good restaurants. Our room was not fancy but it was charming and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Free wifi and ample breakfast made this hotel a great value. If we...

Stayed as a couple in a superior double room (5th floor) and a senior in a superior single room (4th floor). The rooms very clean and spacious enough - shower wasn't big - room had balcony with views over the city. Noise from being near the elevators was really bad - kept all 3 of us awake from 5am. Staff...

Stayed one night before leaving Florence - tiny single room with a balcony that had a gorgeous view of the city! Small but clean and newly remodeled bathroom complete with bathrobe and slippers! Very nice breakfast in the am before leaving for the airport. Staff not very friendly. Room so small would not have been comfortable for a longer stay....

Spent 4 nights here with my wife last week. It's in a great location, near the railway and coach station to be accessible quickly providing you can spot it and don't walk past it. It's also near to the centre and it's history, churches and galleries which are all within walking distance, and let's face it Florence's centre is not...

This 3 star hotel has good points - location near train and bus station, but on a narrow busy street. Well within walking distance of all attractions, cafes and restaurants. The hotel only has a door on the ground frontage and a small neon sign above; can be difficult to locate (our taxi driver had problems finding it) - don't...

We chose this hotel as it looked on the map close to the Florence SMN station and it was just that, only a few minutes walk with our cases. Our room was on the first floor and very adequate and the staff extremely helpful. The first night my husband had a problem with the air/con making a noise and went...

The Hotel is an old interesting building, very well positioned for the train station which is a 5 minute walk. We were recommended an excellent restaurant also within walking distance by the receptionist. Very helpful obliging staff.

We spent 3 nights in Florence and very little of it in the hotel so we weren't worried about views etc. we just needed a comfy bed and clean bathroom which is what we got although the shower cubicle is incredibly small. Hotel pays homage to the past with "frescoes" on walls. the actual entrance to the hotel is really...
