The hotel is a short walk from the Train station; I think about 20 minutes in total walking through the narrow streets of Florence. The Hotel in our opinion was in the best location within the city just a small distance to all the main tourist spots and of course the Bridge itself is seconds away, yes it can be a bit noisy however you are in the middle of a city. The room we had was spotlessly clean and tidy and looked fresh and well decorated, it had a small mini Bar and the TV worked with no problems – also the Air con worked very well and the room was very cool under the 35c heat outside. You get a free Wi-Fi code on check-in and to my surprise this was fast at about 9mb/s, please note it logs you out after a while so you just have to enter details again. Our room plan came with breakfast included and the food was good with a large selection of different things to cater for most people, the two coffee machines did supply good tasting coffee as well. The main thing that made this hotel good was the staff in the restaurant in the evening, they were all very friendly and offered good advice on the wines from the menu, the food selection was small however it tasted great and we used it every night for the whole week, we mostly had the cold meats and cheese with a bottle of wine (please note food bill is signed for and put onto your final check out bill). All the staff were friendly and helpful, they will print off you boarding passes etc. no problem also give you directions to the tourist hotspots etc. The only thing I have to say they could do better is to explain the city tax, this was put onto the final check-out bill and everybody that stays in Florence must pay (we knew about it before hand) but at no time was the explained to us this was going to happen, it should have been explained at check-in. This however did not spoil our stay and I would recommend this hotel, I could not fault it.
