My husband and I, and another couple with whom we were traveling (we are all retirees,) chose this hotel because the reviews were OK, the price was right, and it was near the railroad station. Our expectations were not high, but as we were only going to be there for one night we thought it would be adequate. The pros:
very helpful and friendly staff; bathroom updated and very clean. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station, and might be a good choice for anyone who wants to take day trips from Florence, or for people who travel with only one small bag. However, we called a taxi when we checked out, because the sidewalks were too narrow and crowded for us to manage with our suitcases, none larger than carry-ons. Our room had a tiny balcony and a view of the tops of the cathedral dome and bell tower. The cons: our room was cramped and a little shabby, but it was at the end of a hallway and we were not bothered by noise. Our biggest complaint was about the breakfast room, which became very crowded, and offered very little seating. (Look at the hotel's picture of the breakfast area and try to imagine it full of 30-40 people.) The beverage machine produced terrible coffee. The food was typical, rolls, yogurt, cereals, cheeses and meats, but supplies ran out quickly and weren't replenished fast enough. We would not choose this hotel again.
