Milan, Italy1 contribution
What wonderful welcome from the staff at this hotel. I stayed two nights, very comfortable bed, excellent dinner. Breakfast also very good. Internal parking in courtyard. The hotel has a sitting room with character and I used it to work. All it missed was a piano in the room. I would have played! Thank you.

Very beautiful hall, cozy room with comfortable bed and clean sheets, kind crew of young people. It is very close to a "tranvia" (Florence railway transport) stop and walking distance from the historical center and its Renaissance masterpieces - Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi, you name it :-) The best!

The hotel is very close to the city center (approx. 15-20mins on foot), yet easily reachable by car. They offer private parking which is very useful in a city like Florence. The staff is kind and welcoming. We stayed for two nights.

Thank you for the great review! We are happy that you like our position, in fact is very easy to reach the historical center by walk or with the tram, with out any thinking about your car ( for just € 20,00 per night you can leave the car in our parking, very reasonable price when compared to the price of the outdoor parking (€ 2,00 for the first hour + € 3,00 from the second hour for each hour until 8:00pm) just in the blu lines. I hope to welcome you next time you come to Florence! Best wishes from all our staff Rosane A.

What I remember is how helpful the staff was. From directing me into their parking lot, very tight gate, to the front desk recommending a good take out/delivery restaurant. Would I go back? Yes most certainly.
