    Superb

    Very close to the Station. Clean, good sized rooms. Good, comfortable bed. Clean bathroom. Breakfast sufficient but typical Italian, pastries etc. Very helpful staff.

    Shower good and hot but plumbing needs checking because water from shower took some time to drain.

    I think this hotel is very nice for us. The cost is moderate, and it is very close to Train station. Since Florence is really small, so it is also close to the visits. According to this, location for hotel is not a problem for most of the hotel in Florence, but I think our room is large enough for us two. The stuff is kind. Breakfast is all right, we did not expect very much on that. If you want to have a quit and rough breakfast, it is fine. Otherwise, you should consider higher rank hotel.

    If you want to save some money for tap water, you shall fill your bottle before check out, we ask one of the young lady in the staff after we check out. She said we shall buy water in there with 2 Euro if we already checked out. This is very hard to believe for us, and it is the first time that I meat this thing. I think the other stuff members, except this young lady, would be kind enough. So it may be not related to the hotel, but just depends on the person. Anyway, we are not quite happy on that.

    Fabulous

    1. Efficient and competent staff 2. Atmosphere of old building

    I would have appreciated a spare blanket in the cupboard

    Very helpful staff, excellent location, we had very large room for this price, also the exterior of the building is fascinating.

    TV in our room was broken, poor breakfast (there were no fruits, vegetables, only couple of sorts of ham)

    Very good

    Close to the Station, the Duomo, the San Lorenzo. Comfortable bed. Stuff was quite nice.

    Breakfast was poor, no vegetable/fruit, you can ask for real coffee (but they won't tell you in advance -perhaps because they don't speak English-, you have to find it out yourself). We had 2 rooms: one of them had a good-working air condition, but the other just tried to make some coolness ... Technically, in July there is no use booking a room with view (we did), because daytime you can't open even the shutters for the swelter.

    Good

    Good location. Very close to the central station. The breakfast is raher good.

    The hotel entrance does not go direct to the lobby and the hotel reception is one floor up. The elevator was out of order. The air condition was difficult to control. The beds were not comfortable. The room furniture is old.

    Very good

    Great location, fairly large room, nice breakfast area outside on terrace, and a great price.

    The air conditioning was somewhat lacking. You have "control" of the a/c in your room, but I think the management controls the actual temperature, and they turn cold air off in the morning until 2 pm.

    Fabulous

    Very good location, just 5 min from the Dome. Breakfast correct with bread, croissants, fruits... The AC is very convenient to keep the room not too hot and avoid the mosquitos!

    The bed we had very bad.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Clean and spacious rooms. Great location for who arrives in train as the station is just 2 minutes away by foot but also close to the city center. A great terace for serving breakfast.

    The rooms facing Piazza S. Maria Novella are a bit noisy.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Location, location and location! Close to train station and walkable to down town, plenty restaurant around!

    Ac not working in the room! Luckily its not summer yet you can open the window, however the noise from the street can wake you whole night!

    super helpful staff and the location really is superb. It is super close to the train station and the St Lorenzo Basilica as well as the Duomo. Highly recommended!

    Very handy to the train station and info centre, so great for quick connections. Friendly service, and a good level of English (helpful when you only know a smattering of Italian!)

    Walls a bit thin between rooms, but that is often the case in hotels!

    Fabulous

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great and so convenient to the city of Florence and all the high lights were within easy walking distance.

    The airconditioning was not very good on the hot days.

    Fabulous

    The location is extremely good, just in the heart of the city, Duomo is 6-7 minutes by walk. Hotel has an antique interior, looks great, with a nice terrace where the breakfast is served. Wifi works only in common areas.

    Parking is horrible in Florance, the hotel has a solution for 24 € per day: they take your car somewhere, and bring it back in 15 minutes, if you ask them. Breakfast is poor, there weren't any vegetables or fruits. Air condition works only if you ask for it.
