“Good value for Florence”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Well located close to shopping and historical sites.

Small rooms but relatively big bathroom.

Overall very satisfied with my experience.

I would stay here again and suggest this hotel if you don't plan on staying in your room that much

The hotel is wonderfully situated, but apparently this is not enough to grant proper revenue, so staff, at least in my case, invented something. I had to pay my breakfast €25 (to give a measure, an excellent pizza and a pint, near to Palazzo Pitti, cost me 8.40€). I booked online and I was quite sure I asked for included breakfast, I must admit no signs of breakfast included in my booking confirmation, still usually when you come to an establishment, staff offers you packages in which breakfast can be selected. In my case, I learnt the hard way in Italy you must ask for "services", as apparently none cares selling them. In any case, €25 for a breakfast is simply insulting.

A lovely hotel close to the ponte vechio which was unfortunately noisy at night. I think this will vary according to which rooms you occupy . A great roof bar. Very chic bedrooms and the staff gave my mum a bottle of Prosecco in her room for her birthday which was a nice touch. The breakfasts are good and the chill out room was stunning .

Very badly run establishment. Entire hotel smells bad, the staff are very very unprofessional and rude. The cleaning services do not clean or provide extra daily towels or toilet tissue. Don't go there.

GPS systems cannot cope with this one. We were using two which were directly conflicting one another but it is difficult to drive to the hotel but worth persevering. No view so one of the bridge is projected onto the wall. One elevator is like a living room and the other like a phone booth. Top floor has an outside bar which was full so we could not try. Ideally located for the sights and sounds on Florence. Rooms are small but well fitted out although at these prices I expect bath robes.

Room Tip: Park your car outside and take a cab

Room 504 is a dreamy contemporary sanctuary in bustling Florence. Drifting off to sleep surrounded by floaty white curtains is amazing & the views are framed perfectly by small (but totally awesome) windows.

Such a beautiful and stylish hotel...it is effortlessly cool but not uncomfortable and you are made to feel special the moment you walk in. We were given a fabulous room overlooking the Ponte Vecchio - i thought the decor was very romantic but in a modern/subtle style. It is also brilliantly located so that you can easily pop back mid-day without going out of your way. The roof top bar is a must (though we did have to wait a fair while for our drinks and remind them as they had forgotten us).

This is possibly my favorite hotel i have ever stayed in and would recommend to anyone, there was so much to see in Florence but was also hard to leave our room!
