“Great location. Very friendly staff.”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We made a very good decision to stay in this hotel. The location is perfect, just a very short walk from the Duomo. We were in the middle of Florence yet the sound proofing in the rooms ensured we were not disturbed at night. The rooms were very comfortable and modern. The cafe next to the reception area was great. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. The personal attention was excellent - one even presented my daughter with a bunch of flowers as it was her birthday! We would certainly stay here again.

A clean and modern hotel with friendly staff. For a family break (3 adults) we stayed comfortably in a room for 3 people, the facilities were clean and the beds were comfy. The breakfast was delicious, with many different options to have. The views were super especially from the breakfast terrace and we did not experience any noise from the road. The price was competitive and it was very good value for money. A super city location, 3 minutes from the Duomo and 7 minutes from the train station, perfect holiday all round. Would definitely recommend this hotel and location to all.

The hotel is in a great location near shops, markets and a 10 minute walk from the main railway station. Although the rooms were clean my wife and I found them very hot with no ventilation. I spoke to reception (twice) and they tried to make changes but nothing seem to work. We had to open the window to cool the room down even during the night.
Breakfast was nice although I have never had RED Orange juice....

Dear Sirs,

thanking you for choosing our hotel, we inform you that we still have the heating on in the rooms, as the desired spring still does not arrive and the temperatures are still very low for the season. Therefore we expect that the best time to turn on the air conditioning.
The orange juice at breakfast is so red because it is made with oranges called "sanguinello" name that in Italian language remembers the blood and its red color.
We hope that the juice has been to your liking.
We would be happy to welcoming you again.

Best regards

Nice hotel, clean and nice place to stay and if you want to do shopping it's a perfect hotel as it's surrounded with lots of shops and very near Mercato Market that sell lots of leather stuff and it's cheaper than Milan.
We have no complaints about the hotel and would stay there again. The staff is very friendly, when we just reach the hotel they inform us where to go and show us on the map where is all the attraction places to visit in Firenze/Florence.
Very near the central train station too, it's just 10 minutes walk from our hotel.
We have a great time staying there overall.

This hotel is so central just a short walk from the bus train station, very close to all the major attractions on foot. Nearby lots of restaurents and coffee shops.
Best of all the views of the Cathedral from the sixth floor rooftop terrace bar at night with the lights lighting it up, beautiful.
Couldn't fault the room, very clean, maybe a bit warm, but there was air conditioning. Loved waking up in the morning, opening the large window listening to the bells, and looking out over the roof tops of Florence.
The breakfast was a buffet style, loads to choose from, fresh foods, fruit, eggs, pastries and no rush to leave the table, could sit with a coffee until ready to leave.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
I chose this hotel througth Trip Advisor originally. Good Choice!
