This was our first visit to Florence and were happy to find that the hotel was ideally situated. Central to all attractions and walking distance to the the train station. Rooms are very spacious for Europe and very neat. As per our request my kids and I were given rooms next to each other. The staff are very helpful and able to communicate effectively in English. Breakfast however is very basic. There are too few tables to accommodate all guests. When the trays are empty they are not filled again and considering how little is laid out, this basically leaves very little to choose from for breakfast. The breakfast staff are also very unhelpful - unlike the front staff. What was a little disappointing was on our last night the hot water ran out. When we enquired what the problem was from the staff they promised to get back to us but to no avail. On the whole though I would still highly recommend this hotel for a pleasant and comfortable stay. Free wi-fi as well.
