London, United Kingdom2237 contributions171 helpful votes
I loved my classic room here, which was a very generous size and beautifully decorated, with a walk-in wardrobe and a sofa as well as a desk and a huge, very comfortable bed. Great blackout blinds on the windows too, and a very nice bathroom with excellent shower. It really was a very pleasant surprise given the price, and I would rate the room as one of the nicest I've stayed in. Obviously the location is ideal, right by the Ponte Vecchio on a very quiet traffic-free street, and only a few minutes walk to most of the key sights in Florence. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. The only disappointment was the very low key lobby, although I think that might only be in use to maintain a one way system during the pandemic. The roof terrace is a real find for evening drinks with a view but you must book as it's very small and open to non-guests as well. And service can be slow, so allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy it if you have dinner reservations to get to. I would definitely stay here when I'm next in Florence

We had a lovely room overlooking the Arno and a pedestrianised road. The staff were lovely and very considerate of returning visitors from overseas. They spoke excellent English. The rooftop terrace (bookable after 6pm) is a nice place to read a book (one guest did yoga up there). The hotel is opposite the Ponte Vecchio but is quiet at night with excellent black out blinds for a good night's sleep. The shower room was recently refurbished and the bed was very comfortable. The resaurant is delightful.

This hotel has a perfect location, straight in front of the Ponte Vecchio in the center. Despite not having a proper lobby, the welcome and service was of high standard with very nice and caring staff. Privileged access to the rooftop bar with a stunning view. Our room (junior suite) was very spacious, had a beautiful view and was really confortable. We would definitely come back and recommend this hotel to future stays.

I booked 3 nights at the hotel and was totally charmed. For one the location is very central and just at the feet of the amazing Ponte Vecchio and second it is minutes from all the main attractions of the city. I booked a single room and got upgraded to a very beautiful double continental room. The deco is modern and very nice and everything is very functional. Everybody at the hotel is very helpful and nice while being discreet which is a plus to me. The breakfast at the caffe dell’Oro is very good, actually the restaurant is really good and should be patronized in the evening. I liked it so much that I decided to book another night at the end of my Italian trip. I would recommend it a 100%!

The location of the hotel is outstanding, right where you want to be in florence. The hotel and the room is nice, clean, staff is friendly & helpful. The terrace is nice but frankly the pictures look more impressive than it is in reality. Would definately choose the hotel again if we go back to florence!
