“You'll love this hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

This hotel is a 1 minute walk to the Duomo and a 5 minute walk from the train station.
Our room was on the top floor with a deck from where you sit, have a glass of wine and look out at the Duomo and central Florence. The room was very comfortable. Breakfast was served on the roof deck each morning, a great way to start your day. Everything was an easy walk, for example the Ponte Vecchio was about 10 minute.
We'd stay here again, no doubt.

Room Tip: By luck we stayed in room 701. Ask for it if you're able. You won't regret it!

Hotel is centrally located to the train station, shopping and all the museums. Breakfast....not so great. Rooms were comfortable and spacious, The roof patio was lovely in the am and evening.
The staff was very helpful with directions and suggested some great areas to visit.

This hotel is in the perfect location central to every major site. The service was excellent, rooms were large, air conditioned and clean. Our room was huge- we got a large suite on the 6th floor with amazing reviews and a patio. Prices were very reasonable and we were very happy with out stay.

I spent 7 days in this hotel.
It has a great location and the quality I expect from a Best Western hotel.
The price is reasonable comparing to other hotels in the same region, with the same quality.
I would definetely stay there again! And I will recommend it to other people.

The bathtub was very clean and it made my days, after 8-10 hours walking through Florence streets I dreamed about getting back to the hotel and spend 20 minutes inside there.
The hotel has cable tv and a desktop on the first floor where you can access the internet after acquiring an internet card in the front desk.
You can also request coffee/tea facilities without any cost. (But you have to request it everyday, because they get it back in the morning). It comes with tea, coffee bags, coffee cream, sugar etc.
I got a welcome drink when I arrived at the hotel and it is served in the restaurant, at the rooftop.
I didn't buy the breakfast so I can't give my opinion about it.

Brilliant hotel, spolessly clean, all floors serviced by two lifts. Staff friendly, helpful and efficient - thats ALL staff. A special mention to the breakfast staff and the superb maid service, she reaaly cared about making the room absolutely spotless every day. Maybe a few more drawers would be good but didnt really bother either of us.Room great and accurately described - went for no view room but not dark just looked over rooftops and very quiet. Tea facilities available free for whole stay but have to ask, likewise for iron and board. Superb position for walking to all attractions and the amazingly good restaurants in Florence - both cheap and expensive. Highlight is the terrace for breakfast, drinks light meals - superb view of Duomo and also a bell tower opposite, its even better than the picture. Hotel only serves selection boards of meat/cheese, pizzas and other quite basic kinds of food and didnt try so cant comment. Would advise to explore Florence's wide variety of restaurants in any caes - you wont be disappointed.Buffet breakfast very good and a wide range of food and drink. Excellent selection of wines. I dont give recommendations lightly, but cant find fault with this hotel, nothing went wrong all week.

Room Tip: Rooms without views very quiet so good choice if wanting to save a bit of money. Some great rooms w...
