“excellent choice in Florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

The room was clean and the staff was very accomodating. The rooftop bar is an excellent place to relax with some wine, complementary snacks (think pretzels and peanuts) and among the best place to watch the sunset in all of Florence. We loved the location of the hotel, as we were always close enough to go back and relax if we wanted a break. The room was clean, but this hotel bed more than any others (and they are all this way in Italy in my experience) had a noticeable point between the two matresses. I dont know if they were of different ages, or they just dont get any closer or what but it almost made it truly feel like my wife and I were sleeping on two separate beds that were "pushed together." Its not a deal breaker. I'd stay here again if I'm ever in Florence. We rubbed that pigs snout, so that means we'll return, right?

Stayed here September 2013 and a great find. Hotel is on a quite street close to the main piazza where the Uffizi is and also very close to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio ect... all within minutes. Hotel has a terrace on the roof with a full 360 view of Florence. Room wasn't the most modern but very clean and spacious. Definatley

This place and nice rooms but the real treat here is the rooftop bar. Amazing view of Florence and wonderful wine served by a really nice woman who climbs the stairs repeatedly to bring up the drinks. I would definitly stay here agin, just for tha amazing view. Rooms were nice, small but efficient and great showers!

We loved this hotel. The location was central. The room was very comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful when we asked how to get to the WWII American cemetery outside of town, printing the bus schedule for us. One of our favorite memories is sitting at the top of the tower at sunset with a glass of wine taking in one of the best views of Florence. That alone made it worth every penny. Thank you!

No complaints about this place! We booked it last minute while staying in Lucca and couldn't have been happier. The room was all we needed and the breakfast the next day was fine. Nothing amazing but nothing bad. The location was wonderful. Took long walks all around and saw everything we wanted to see. Perfect place for those who want to see the bridges and city center. The roof top was fantastic. Worth staying just for the pictures you can get! The stair climb to it is interesting and fun. Go up at night and the day! I would stay here again, for sure! I hope, one day, I can!

My Wife and I are Americans that live in the Middle East and travel a lot, this hotel was a complete surprise! Great location, staff, room, quality and value! We will return. The roof top bar was awesome, what a view and great times with other visitors.
Thanks for the wonderful stay.

We were lucky to get a room here not only as it seems to be booked up most of the time but also because it is just amazing .
The Hotel is in the center of Florence very close to the bridge, the views from the roof terrace are second to none and the lounge on the 3rd floor is beautiful and tranquil, what I believe Florence is all about.
The breakfast was served by very attentive staff and was well presented.
We stayed another two nights in Florence I only wish we had stayed here.
