“Poor Food and Service”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Spent a night on 17th Oct as part of the Cosmos Tour. Had the included dinner and breakfast in the hotel. When we asked for extra bread during dinner, we were told there is none left. There is a ration of one piece per person. Breakfast is cold and the 2 waiters keep staring at the group during breakfast. Seem like the tour is the only customer there.
Nearby, there are pub or restaurants, so it was very noisy late into the night. The rooms are very run down. Wi-fi is not free, 2 Euro for 30 mins and by the time you paid at the reception and went back to the room to log on, 10 mins is gone. You can hear the Church bell going off every hour. At 6 am, it will go off 6 times.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a Cosmos Tour and other than being a bit tired and basic is was comortable. We stayed in a room with a balcony (small though it may be :-)). Public transport was just on the other side of the square. Don't expect to get the lift in a hurry though we all noticed :-)

Stayed a part of cosmos tour.
Hotel is not in florence but in signa about 15 min train ride. Do not believe the tour director who will tell u that florence is an hour drive away!!

Rooms r very small, breakfast was ok, included dinner was terrible!! Better off eating out!

Hotel is right next to the signa station, trains to Florence run every 30 min or so, tix 2.60 euro one way.
Gelateria behind the hotel is a must!!

Have to pay for wifi, 3 euros for 1 hour which is pretty expensive or can get 10 hours for 8 euros from memory.

If looking to save money by staying out of Florence not a bad option

Cosmos tour 2 adults and a 12yr old
WE were very well looked after at this hotel for our one night stay.
Rooms comfortable even though ours was an odd shape but was very clean and comfortable.
We had a lovel dinner in the hotel and the staff were fantastic.
Public transport right next door but didnt hear a thing.
It is a long way out of Florence but you would think publicv transport could get you in there ok

The decor of this hotel needs significant improvement. Staying for one night while on a tour, my wife and I had some difficulty sleeping due to the transit station close by. Great jogging paths are right around the hotel. The power went out when we arrived and the hotel staff, rightly or wrongly, blamed our tour group.

There are some great restaurants in the area that should be checked out.

I wouldn't seek out this hotel again though, it is very average.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a Cosmos tour. I stayed only 1 night and the accommedations were adequate. The TV was very small, maybe 8-10 inches. The room was clean and comfortable. I had a view of the front of the hotel with the train station to my left. It only took 15 minutes to get to downtown by train. You can purchase train tickets from the hotel desk. The electricity in the room works only when your room key card is inserted into a slot just inside the room. This is a good way to save electricity however it is not ideal for charging camera batteries while you are not in your room. Overall it was an Ok room to stay in.

This hotel was a pleasant place to stay. Although it took us about an hour in our tour bus to get to this hotel from central Florence, it was such a peaceful place to be. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet enabling us to get a good night's sleep. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked the village square. We enjoyed sitting out there in the evening and in the early morning watching the villagers go about their everyday life.
Note: If you want to visit the Uffussi Gallery please be aware that it is closed on Mondays and guess which day we were in Florence?
