The hotel is beautiful, the service is amazing as well as the rooms and the location!
We booked the room the evening before as a last minute idea, and Barbara was very kind and assisted us all the way. We had a beautiful room on the second floor on the river side.
The roof terrace looked a bit bigger on the photos but it was very nice anyway. The breakfast room is on the first floor and if you are early enough you can have a nice table on the river, but in any case it was a very nice breakfast in a very cute room.
Thank you to the staff, especially Barbara, for this beautiful time.

Room Tip: Ask for the river side :) the room 209 is amazing!!

Thank you for your review and for sharing your kind words with other travelers on Tripadvisor.

Stayed for 5 nights. Hotel is a great location. Staff was good. Room was immaculate. Helped to make for a great visit to Florence. Rooftop bar and terrace had great views. Be sure to go up for some drinks.

Our room was a nice jr suite (room 108) with a small living area and the bed up on a loft area. Quite nice.

Had a lovely long weekend in Florence and stayed here. We had a two bed apartment as four of us staying. List of room and quiet. Situated on the river about 100m from the Ponta Vecchio and a short stroll to the Uffizi Gallery and other attractions. Staff friendly and helpful. Would go back.

If you want good location, you got it, 2 minutes from Uffizi and 1 from Ponte Vecchio. it used to be a monastery and its quite interesting. Breakfast is uneventful, I with they would supply better , tastier products. For example, they have yoghurt, but its the cheapest possible, same with bread and salami sand cheeses, fruits, etc... The friendliness of staff is average, the gentlemen are friendly but the women are stiff and irritated by questions... One strange thing: you cannot control the a/c/ temperature, you must call front desk to shut down the a/c overnight if you don't like to freeze under the blasting wind of the room a/c and call them back in the morning to turn it back on!

Dear Madam,

Thank you for taking the time to write your opinion about your stay with us.
To be honest I can hardly understand your comments since they are in total disagreement with what the general opinion of our clients about us is as you can clearly see from the previous comments.
First of all the products we have for breakfast are best choice: fresh fruit, a big variety of fresh bread and yoghurt, as well as for homemade cakes etc. I would rather say that this is one of our best feature.
As regards the staff I totally disagree with you, since “my” ladies are very nice and very well behaved towards our clients all the time; I appreciate anyway that you liked at least our men which are also very nice and kind !
Last but not least the A/C system : the temperature can be set according to your needs from the room and the reception and can be easily turned on and off using the switch on the display you have in your room
You can call for assistance any time day and night, in fact we offer a 24 hour service at reception.

Kindest regards
Rossella Nelli
Managing Director

This is a wonderful hotel in a wonderful location immediately adjacent to Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. It is within a short walking distance of most of the major sites of Firenze. We walked everywhere without needing a taxi or bus. We stayed in room 309 for two nights, which did not have a view but was a good size and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was fairly large and also spotless. The bed was very comfortable. Considering the hotel is located near the river in the heart of Firenze our room was very quiet- we did not hear any street noise at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in a very beautiful room with frescos on the ceiling and chandeliers. The breakfast offerings are vast- cold cuts, eggs, fruit, yogurt, cereal, cakes, croissants, etc- all displayed beautifully each morning and the waitstaff very friendly ! The rooftop bar has a beautiful view- we spent an hour there one late evening before we left Florence and it was very relaxing. The bartender was very nice as well. There are a few nice unexpected touches as well- such as two free bottles of water each day (very handy during the hot summer days), two complimentary soft drinks or water bottles at the bar, and on our first night we received t-shirts at turn-down service- a nice souvenir of our stay and a nice surprise. The only drawback was the wifi- we did have trouble connecting and keeping the connection during our stay. Perhaps it related to the location of the room? However, we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Florence.

Beautiful hotel. Staff is great and excellent location everything you need is close and within walking distance. There is a reading room with a computer and printer on the second floor. Breakfast was good. While the bed was a little hard my stay so far at the hotel has been excellent

Room Tip: My room and traveling companion rooms are all spacious and clean
