“Good hotel in Florence”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

I went to Florence for the second time for business. The hotel is very well located, 5 min by foot from the train station and 10-15 min from the main locations. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the double windows isolate well the room from the outside noise. They have free internet and the terrace on the sixth floor has a view of the duome. Nice place for having your breackfast or are drink once you come back from a day walking around.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor have a small balcony to stand up outside the room.

Stayed in this hotel several times, fits the bill on every level. Well appointed bathroom, comfortable beds, spotless. We have breakfast on the roof restaurant which has a very good broad choice of food " even a bacon sandwich!! overlooks the Duomo and is central to everything important and interesting. Nice cafe bar, lovely helpfull staff. Like the old saying " don't mend it if it ain't broken" worth every penny.......

Room Tip: They are all just as good

This hotel offers everything a traveller to Florence needs. the location is superb; the staff are exceptional; the rooms comfortable and the breakfast and evening selection 100%.

We must say that the reception guys go the extra mile; my wife's shoe broke when we were in Florence and they even found a shoe repairer for her, what more can you want.

Room Tip: Just leave it to them

Having never stayed at a Best Western I didn't know what to expect. Ther reviews here were good and the location was right so we tried it. I'm happy to report the hotel was very nice, nothing opulent of course, but no complaints at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room and common areas were clean and well kept, and the free breakfast was fine.
Some of the complaints here must have been fixed since we had no issues at all. The wifi requires a code that the front desk provides and it was very useful when we returned to the room each night to catch up with friends and family.

This hotel delivers the mid-budget traveler's essential needs. It does not have a full service restaurant. Breakfast is self-serve continental + quite good. You can't beat the location. Super clean and ALL the rooms are spacious. I have traveled to Florence for business at least once per year for more than 8 years. Unless I have a short 1-2 day trip where I stay close to the airport, I always come to this hotel. It is basically, two and a half blocks from the Duomo, around the corner from the San Lorenzo Market, 5-10 minute walk to the train station, 10-15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio.

Room Tip: Here are my favorite rooms in order of preference ... 606, 603, 704, 703

We loved our visit in Florence! Our room was large and comfortable and the view from our window was fantastic.
The very best part of our stay was dinner on the roof top. The food was great and the only regret that I have is that we do not have the name of our waiter/host......he was wonderful!
We felt very pampered, along with our dinner we were given a few little extra treats to taste,
some information on local wines....it was just the best dinner ever!
Very relaxing, friendly....would LOVE to go back.
The hotel is in the perfect location.
