Small botique hotel built inside an aristocrats home from the 16 century. Beautiful original floors and ceilings with original frescos in the breakfast room. Family run and they are extremely warm, helpful, and friendly. Great location with good sized bathrooms for Europe. Wifi and breakfast is included and the laundry service is very reasonable, 10 euro for 5 kilo. We LOVED staying here!

This is a great little hotel, very close to the Duomo etc. for sightseeing. Couldn't believe the beautifully painted ceilings and great character which they have maintained whilst upgrading the rooms, they have somehow managed to maintain the integrity of the building. Lovely 10foot high windows and a small balcony. all rooms are quiet, the staff are very friendly and also cheerful. They are happy to advise and assist whenever they can. Rooms were very clean, bedding and towels were good, a well deserved Tripadvisor commendation as excellent.

Stayed in Florence only a couple of days so the location was very convenient for sites. It was a bit of a walk from the train station but mainly trying to get thru the crowds with your luggage. There are stairs, but they will help you with your luggage.
Triple room had a good space for us to walk around and for our luggage for 3 people Small bathroom and small, but good shower. Basic breakfast.
Staff was very nice and helpful - restaurant recommendation was not good - full of Japanese tourist and food and service not good :( But we found some good places on our own. Lots of good gelato places close by.
Got a good night sleep - good a/c in the room.

We stayed in this hotel in mid-May. We were only staying in Florence for 2 days, so we needed a hotel as close to the sites as possible so we would not lose any time commuting.
Boy, did we hit the jackpot with this hotel!

Sparkling clean, 2 blocks away from the Duomo, quiet, with very accommodating and helpful staff to boot. We communicated with the hotel via email prior to our arrival to confirm our reservation and they responded quickly and accurately. Although it is walking distance from the train station (10 minutes), we did not walk with our luggage. The streets and sidewalks are too narrow to safely navigate with a piece of luggage, even one on the smallish size like we did have.

Hotel: The location cannot be beaten! We walked everywhere. We found very good restaurants close by. The lounge was roomy and the furniture very comfortable.
Since they are on a second floor, we did have to haul our luggage up a flight of stairs, but we had read about this in Trip Advisor, so we were ready for it. I'm sure that the staff could helped us if we needed it, but we were OK.

Room: Can you say clean? Not a speck of dust anywhere or a trace of bed bugs. We did have a few mosquitoes in our room, but the minute we advised the person at the reception, they gave us a citronella pad that plugged in the wall and they were gone. We had ample room for our clothes and the safe was big enough for all our valuables. I loved the bathroom, simple, but well arranged. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars to the room is that I've been in fancier hotel rooms and this one was on the simple side, but very comfortable.

Breakfast: We were not really impressed, but it was sufficient for our needs and gave us a good meal to start the day. For a free breakfast, it was OK.

Staff: Every one we met there spoke English. They were SO helpful and welcoming!
For example, on the Sunday we were there, Northern Italy had a major earthquake. My husband found out about it and unfortunately one of the cities impacted was where we were supposed to connect by train the next day. I went to the front desk and asked the lady there about cancellation and delays. She spent a good 10 minutes finding all the information she could online and relayed what she found to us. We ended up walking to the train station and changing our ticket to an earlier departure. They helped us with taxis as soon as we asked. They gave us extra towels and pillows immediately. We could not have asked for a better experience.

My wife and I stayed there for a week in mid-may. The room we had was roomy, and the bathroom - small but clean and bright. We enjoyed the broad variety of breakfast items, especially the excellent bread selection and the different types of cereals and prunes. There was no decaf, so every morning the person in charge would make us a fresh decaf "americano" - nothing beats good Italian coffee. The hotel is located very close to all the attractions and we walked everywhere. The hotel also helped us choose day tours to Sienna, Pisa and the Chianty Country that were very good. We had some problems with WiFi which took a couple of days to resolve, but the hotel gave us free access (usually there is a charge) to their PC. All in all - excellent hotel and staff!
