Everything was good here. Quiet area, friendly and attentive gentlemen at the front desk, breakfast bar, outdoor terrace. This hotel is away from the city center, which was not good. But we like to walk so it was maybe 20 minutes walking distance from the center. Short taxi ride. The area itself was not bad. Quiet. Shopping and dining options... More

Room was comfortable and we had our own bathroom. On an upper floor - no elevator. Staff (especially Jean Pierre) was FANTASTIC! Good wifi, great continental breakfast - bread, jam, spread, croissants, yogurt, etc.

Bed bugs. Woke up in the morning to a dead bed bug and a live one in the bed and bathroom. Large spots of my blood in the bed where they had been feasting on me during the night.

Very kind management, very helpful e.g. in case of health problems: The hotel manager went to a doctor with me in order to get an appointment and to translate. Good breakfast. Bus stop in front of the house. Very friendly and helpful, proper - very good price/performance ratio. English speaking.

Not having been to Florence before I was not aware of how far out of the main centre this was, which was a downside. We were also given a rather gloomy room with little imagination in furnishing, but it was clean and the en-suite was good. It's not the room they show you in the photos on the website! The... More
