We loved this hotel.
Central location in a historic building with amazing views of the city.
In spite of the ancient building, the design is modern and rooms are very spacious and clean.
Breakfast overlooking Florence was excellent and prices are fair.
As there is no receptionist 24/7, if you arrive or leave late in the afternoon you need to let them know in advance to arrange collection/deposit of the keys.
We definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: only 5 rooms so very peaceful,there is one with a terrace which would be lovely,suite was great

I stayed in this beautifully decorated hotel and found it very pleasant. My room was spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The view from the breakfast room is unsurpassable. The hotel is located in a splendid palazzo in a street that is quiet but only five minutes from the Piazza del Duomo.

Reviewed 6 May 2012

Our room was quite large and nicely decorated. The bathroom had a shower over the bath with reasonable water pressure and temperature control. It was possible to see the dome of the Duomo from the room. The view from the breakfast room was very impressive. It is about a 10 minute walk into the centre. Four keys are required to access the property but during the day two of the doors are open.

The breakfast was a weakness. The first couple of days there were hot croissants that weren't cooked on the inside and after that it was pastries from the supermarket. The advertising material says that breakfast products come from our farm in Tuscany but that isn't the case.

The staff were friendly but always seemed in a hurry to get tidied up. Check out is 12 noon but while we were out getting coffee and a breakfast brioche from Scudieri (highly recommended and only 5 Euros for two) the room was cleaned and the sheets changed for the next occupant.

This is a small establisbment with only 5rooms if i am not wrong. But one of the best stay during my 17days trip in Italy and France.

We booked only the most basic room but were given the room with a outdoor terrace (with white roses) with a view of the city and can even see the Dumno! Its so nice sitting out in the terrace in a nice weather (we visited in May)! Can even access the free wireless there.

The room is new, spacious and clean. There is even a skyline which we can gazed at the stars or sky at night from our bed.

The breakfast room is a delight too. Nice view of the Duomo. Nice touches with comfy couch, Tv, and books! Breakfast is just continental breakfast of fruits, cereal, yoghurt, hot crossiants, juice and coffee/tea. Good enough for us to start our day.

Location is also good. Near to the Duomo, Accademia etc. Plenty of restaurants, gelato shops, shopping around the hotel. But its not that near the Florence train station, we have to take a taxi to get to the hotel and on our departure day to the train station again.

Leny the people in charge, was very friendly and helpful.

Overall a very good stay! Stay here! Its better than those big hotels chains!
