I was abit apprehensive upon reading the reviews but overall its not bad. The hotel is clean, staff are friendly, you are 20 mins walk from the centre of Florence but you do get a great view from the front rooms here. I did ask for a quiet room just in case and I got a room on the 6th... More

Not suitable for wheelchairs. Bathrooms are impossible to have a decent shower and the bathroom is very dated and has no where to hang the shower nozzle and there is no shower curtain or screen so the water goes everywhere. Hotel restaurant was simple and small and had very slow service with our large group. Location is a little far... More

Stayed at the hotel during short spring break. Our room was clean, pretty big, river view. A bit noisy due to traffic, but after all day walking around Florence, you fall asleep and do not hear much. The rest of the hotel, well let's call it "shabby chic" (anyhow, you do not spend any time in it). The hotel could... More

The room would have been larger than 12squear metres, the tv screen larger than 15inches ,the fridge large enough to have a small bottle of water standing,the carpet would've been cleaned more often than twice a century .I mean for 190 euros per day no one...

I would highly recommend avoiding this place, as their are hardly any good things about it! The only nice amenity there is the view. Go to the Hotel Enza, a much nicer place! The window shutters are tricky, but provide a nice view. In my room, there were no working phones, and so I had to use the reception one!

First the positives, the front desk team-members and housekeeping were very friendly, welcoming and informative, special mention to the English night manager. The hotel is not necessarily centrally located but is around 20 minutes walk to central Florence. In regard to the negatives, firstly the outside metal blind did not close, nor did the shower window subsequently the only place... More

The hotel is in need of repair (full reconstruction). The rooms are an unpleasant smell in the bathroom mold on the walls. Old furniture (dirty), no parking. Sockets, switches need to be repaired. Rude manager.
