We stayed here for one night to be near to the AirPort , leaving next day. Nice staff, friendly and serviceminded . Rooms ok, but keep the windows closed at night; the mosquitos are looking out for you.. Simple breakfast , but the Espresso was good!

Hotel was clean, staff very helpful, room was typical size for a European hotel. Close to the car rental return which is at an off airport location and difficult to get to. Only disadvantage was lack of quality restaurants within walking distance.

We didn't drive in Italy ... we took the trains. This hotel is close to the city center - it's a bus ride or you can take a cab which of course costs more. Bus stop is very accessible from hotel. Unit is quite roomy, not typical - I was surprised. Florence is located somewhat in the middle part of Italy... at the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station which is about 15 mins from the hotel- you can take trains to the most visited cities like Milan, Venice & Rome. Enjoy!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in 2 x double rooms because all 4 pers. rooms were taken.

The rooms are nice and clean, but may differ a little compared to the images showed on the internet. The beds are nice and comfortable, and the rooms are made each day. Some have a bathtub, others a regular shower cabin.

The breakfast is better than average, and all food served is fresh.

When we arrived at the hotel we were met with a warm welcome and smiles from the reception - clearly this is not something you can expect on any hotel in Italy :-) The kind lady spoke perfect English and were able to assist us on any questions we might have. Thank you very much for that, it really DID make a difference.

The parking is free and there is room enough for bigger sized cars as well.

The hotel is approx. 15 min away from the city center by bus. Busses no. 29, 30 and 35 stops less than 200 meters away from the hotel!

I would recommend this hotel to everyone, especially if you can arrive by car.

After stupidly planning my flight back to the states, I was stranded in Florence for 2 days. This was the cheapest I could find and it is a great place if you just need a quick cheap hotel to crash at. Cleanliness, good rates, breakfast buffet, luggage storage, extremely friendly and helpful staff. They even poured me a free beer after I came to get my luggage AFTER I had checked out. The city center is only a short bus ride away and they provide tickets at a discounted rate as well as thorough instructions I would highly recommend this place.
