    #108 2 nights Location may be this hotel's only real "selling" point-- close walks to Duomo, Uffizi, & Accademia. The lobby and breakfast room just ordinary; the breakfast just average. The whole facility seems "tired" and in need of a freshening refurb. The staff was...More

    Rooms near the reception and breakfast area are quite noisy with people noise. Rooms further away are noisy with terrace and furniture moving noise. The hallways are long and dark with no lighting at all in many of the alcoves. The breakfast is "iffy" and...More

    Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
    an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
    The historic center is characterized by the immensity
    of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
    brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
    not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
    Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
    enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
