“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here on my own for two nights. Location was great, easy walking distance to the train station. Room was comfortable and the bathroom and shower was amazing! The breakfast was adequate. Easy walking distance to the city center. I booked this place because of the reviews and cancelled another hotel I had booked that had not so good reviews, and was significantly higher in price. So this place was a great value! Would definitely recommend!

Stayed July 2014, traveled solo

Excellent location, close to the train station and the central market. Staff was friendly and the room was spacious. Ok, maybe some streetnoise but this is part of the vivid Florence nightlife. Breakfast was Ok but a bit to sweet for me :) Would stay here again.

Central location. Air conditioning drowned out the noisy street below & smell of constant cigarette smoke from outside. Very close to train station & touristy stuff . High ceilings, clean room, nice big bathroom, comfy bed, good breakfast.

Ideal hotel located very close to the train station which was ideal not having to drag bags around the city or hunt for the hotel, and on the doorstep of markets ( end of the street) , dining , sites . Staff were REALLY friendly and helpful. Cute decor , beautifully decorated for a basic hotel. Breakfast was very nice. I would DEFINITELY stay here again. Particularly if solo as it's in a busy safe street and has a very friendly atmosphere in the hotel.

Room Tip: I booked late so my room had an external bathroom - which was HUGE , directly outside my room and ex...

My husband and I only stayed here for one night on our European vacation. It was incredibly close to the train station, the Duomo and other great spots. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. The room was very clean and had a old charm feel. I would definitely stay there again!

Went to Florence solo in July 2014. This hotel seemed to be a nice place to stay and indeed it was. I should say that everything that I expected and waited for has been delivered or even exceeded.

A lot has been said about the hotel's location - counting out that the street is a narrow and busy, I must say that the location alone is really an asset. See for yourself: you have 5-10 minutes from the train/bus station (i.e., transfer to airport) and then you have 5-10 minutes to Il Duomo and all other landmarks are easily accessed from this cathedral.

I should probably say more about two important features which usually raise many questions: the bathing room outside your living room and safety deposit.

Bathing room which is outside your living room is suited only for you - you can even close it with the key and no one can enter there. So no, it's not a common bathing room for various guests. It is also very neat and tidy, so I can assure that that's definitely isn't a problem if you happen to choose that kind of rooms. And it's rather big, there's literally as much space as in the living room.

Safety deposit can be used only by you - it's opened with two keys, one of which is master key for all safety boxes and the second is the single one which you can have with you all the time. It's not possible to open the box without two keys at a time, so you can be sure that all your posessions are really safe.

Speaking of the downsides, I can probably mention the rather slow lift but I don't think that it's really fatal. Especially if you consider all of the positive aspects of this hotel.

Speaking about the staff - I must note that they have been very polite and nice all the way.

Anyway, I can recommend this hotel to anyone going to Florence and looking for a nice, safe and friendly place to make a base in the city. Definitely will go here if I return.
