Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Based on the website photos, we expected a beautiful hotel with charming historic elements. There were historic elements such as the staircase and a few windows, but it was overshadowed by the lack of maintenance and rugged appearance once we arrived. The rooms are less than basic and the elevators were just scary. There was nothing beautiful about the hotel. The windows in our room looked over an interior open space that was full of ductwork. Again, it wasn’t beautiful and did not add to the ambiance. I would like to add that the staff was friendly and helpful. I would not recommend this hotel unless you have no other option.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your stay with us. We're delighted to hear that you found our staff to be friendly and helpful; however, we're very sorry to learn that the overall aesthetic of the hotel did not meet your expectations based on the website photos. We understand that individual preferences vary, and we regret any disappointment you experienced with the appearance of the historic elements in our hotel. While we strive to maintain the charm and character of our establishment, we acknowledge that certain areas may not have met your desired level of maintenance. Taking your criticism as an opportunity to improve, we will renew our efforts to keep the interior open spaces as pleasant to the eye as possible. Regarding your concerns about the elevators, let us assure you that we continuously assess and address any maintenance issues promptly to ensure complete safety for all our guests. The exterior of the elevators was kept original to maintain the historic feel, but the machinery that powers them has been completely renovated. We hope that, in the future, you might consider giving us another chance to provide you with an improved and more enjoyable stay.

All the staff were excellent. Polite, knowledgeable, without obsequiousness, helpful and obliging. This was right through the hotel from Reception, breakfast room and housekeeping staff. All lovely! Whilst the room was not very large, it was kept very clean on a daily basis. Breakfast was a little limited. Lots of lovely cakes, but few savoury choices, and the same every day. Satellite TV had very many channels - but no English options. Very close to the Main train station, and walking distance from all main attractions.

We literally just slept here as we were out all the time but it’s clean. Beds very comfortable. Staff most helpful. No bar or restaurant except for breakfast room. Location fabulous as it’s opposite the main Santa Novella station and 10 mins walk to Duomo etc. Good value for money

Great place to stay. 5 min. walk from tram, train station, and central market shopping area. 10 min. walk to Duomo. Fabulous breakfast was included. Unfortunately, the elevator wasn't working and we had to walk up two flights of stairs to get to our room. Air conditioning was fine. We had a big room with 2 twin beds, lots of pillows and extra blankets. Very small shower. There were some plugs in the room but not many.

Me and my friends stayed here for 3 nights. Made abit of an error thinking there was 24/7 check in (as trip advisor said) where there typically isn’t. We had a late flight I would be arriving to the hotel till midnight, but we had an employee ring us and checking we were still coming. And gave us the information about how to access the hotel, so thankfully no crisis! The room itself was clean with a lovely little balcony. We had a twin room, and the bathroom was on the smaller side but all very nice. And the staff on the reception were very lovely, always welcoming and open to any questions Hotel is very close to the train station so was ideal for or traveling, and also very close to the trams. And only a ten minute walk from the main attractions

Great Location, close to Santa Maria Novella Station. Everything walking distance. On arrival we were happy with the vibe of hotel. Staff were very helpful& friendly. Our Room ( triple ) was a really nice size room. Bathroom spacious and shower had good pressure . Included Breakfast was lovely, a lot to choose from. The lady who worked on the kitchen every morning deserves a mention, really lovely.

We had a nice 3 night stay at this hotel. The room was spacious, clean and had all necessities. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. There was no kettle in the room but you can head down to the breakfast room at any time for hot water and tea! We were lucky to receive a room on a higher level so did not encounter much noise. I noticed that some rooms were very close to the breakfast room so I can imagine those rooms might encounter some noise in the morning. Luckily, we were on a quiet floor so we were able to sleep well! The bed did not have a duvet, just some sheets. This didn’t bother me but I can imagine this being an issue for some in winter. Breakfast was okay, it has less food options than other 3-star hotel buffets I’ve had in Europe but not in any way bad. The hotel was in a great location as it is a short walk from the station and walkable distance from the main area. Overall, a nice stay for the price!

My family and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend recently. We were more than happy with the experience. The hotel was clean and our room adequate for our family. We arrived very late Friday night/Saturday morning due to flight delays. I had emailed the hotel the night before about our late arrival and they responded very quickly with instructions on how to get into the hotel, which was so straight forward, as reception is not open 24 hours. Breakfast was lovely and had a very good variety of food. Reception staff were always friendly and helpful, answering any questions we asked and always with a smile. The location of this hotel is brilliant. Three minutes from the station and within easy reach of everything Florence has to offer. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Florence.

Few minutes walk from the station past McDonald’s (exit the station from the left). Hotel is set back so can easily be missed. We had a room for three, one double bed and a low camp bed. Rooms made up everyday and towels changed frequently. Wardrobe with plenty of hangers, safe, complimentary water in fridge. I asked if we could have a kettle and this was no problem. Bathroom quite big, shower cubicle with toiletries. Lovely white, big bath towels. Great location for lots of great restaurants and only minutes away from attractions. Rooms are quite warm but there is air con. Breakfast consists of yogurts, fresh fruit, breads, croissants, scrambled eggs and great coffee. Hotel staff are so helpful, even printed out our tickets for one of our trips. Would stay there again, next time exit the train station from the left!

Hard to find hotel because it was set back off the street. But once located it was small, friendly, very clean hotel. WiFi was good, the breakfast was tasty and cover most needs. The front desk staff we fluent in English and very helpful. The room was a surprising good size for three occupancy. Double was comfortable, the day bed was low and hard. Could be improved with a better mattress. Three minute walk from the train station, turn left when you exit the platform. Opposite the Mercure hotel. A 4 minute walk to a street lined with bars and restaurants. Approx 10 minutes walk to all the main attractions. I would stay three again.
