3 Friends Stayed for 3 nights. We lucked into a great room with kitchenette, upstairs/downstairs & 2 bathrooms. Tile floors but they leave slippers in the room which is a nice touch. Windows/shutters opened to the courtyard and was very clean. wi-fi was good for us. Breakfast was a big spread, decent cappucinos and good amount of seating for the guests. its a bit of a walk to the sites but after a big pasta dinner this is not such a bad thing. there is an enoteca (wine shop) directly across from the hotel for taking a bottle back to your room. the reception desk is oddly placed and underwhelming. it looks like its a temporary set up but i get the feeling its actually permanent. we went into our trip thinking this would be our least favorite accommodation and ended up being one of our best.

Room Tip: We were in the main building on the second floor. i would steer away from the secondary building. not sure what the rooms are like but who wants to walk outside to get to breakfast.

The hotel is about 10-15 min walking distance from the city center. Its an old building, the rooms are big and clean. Unfortunately, from our room, we heard the noise made by the steps from the rooms above and the discussions because I think the rooms are not soundproof. The parking is cheap compared to the other hotels and the breakfast is ok.

Stayed for 4 nights at end of August/start of September. Nice hotel in a good location, 15 minutes north of the train station. Room had a kitchenette (doubt anyone uses it on holiday) and a nice sitting area and dining table, which came in handy when just looking to sit back and relax. Breakfast was ok, not amazing was a bit basic and staff were slow to refill food. There's no complimentary tea or coffee available in the rooms, which doesn't sound that bad but you'll be surprised how much you miss it from other hotels. There are plenty of restaurants in the area, so plenty of choice. There is a supermarket on via della ruote which is priced for Italians so everything is reasonably priced, compared to some of the smaller stores which are marketing towards tourists. The room had a nice balcony which was great viewing at sunrise and sunset. Florence city tax is charged at €12 a night so be prepared for that extra cost. Staff are a bit laid back so be prepared to wait for things to be done.

Nice, modern (compared to other hotels in the area) hotel 15-min walk away from the historic centre of Florence. Fair breakfast. Spacious and clean room with flat-screen TV. Free wi-fi in the whole hotel but not so good in the rooms as in the lobby. Skype or Viber were not working good.

Our room was in the old palace part of the hotel, and at the end of this review I will tell you a simple trick to make sure your room is in this part of the hotel. Very, very hot outside, but cool as you like inside thanks to the excellent air conditioning (it was set to Arctic when we arrived - simple control on the wall to adjust). Tiled floor, comfortable bed, tasteful bathroom - and all spotlessly clean. If the weather is hot and you plan on returning to the room for a siesta let Reception know and they will get the room serviced in the morning.

The staff were outstanding. I think I saw them speak five or six languages during our stay, and they were always polite and helpful, There is free wi-fi in the rooms, and a computer suite with printer available on the ground floor - ideal for check in / boarding card printing for return flights. One really useful touch - a sheet of paper explaining how to get the '@' character on an Italian keyboard.

Breakfast was very good. If you want full English breakfast you would probably be at an hotel in England. This hotel is in Italy, so you have Italian style breakfast. Fresh coffee is made to order on request.

It is a short and pleasant walk to the centre of town: 20 minutes gets you to the Uffizi. But no need to walk far to get to the Antica Trattoria "da Tito" dal 1913 restaurant - one of the best in Florence - as it is just around the corner from the hotel.

Now, there is another side to this hotel: rather; another block. From other reviews it is not as good as the part of the hotel we were in. The simple trick to being in the old palace part of the hotel is this: just ask.
