Reviewed 8 June 2011

it was very very convenient and luxurious staying at this hotel because all sights were in easy walking distance. excellent places 3 doors away to eat...and nice open seating in the piazza outside. though many said that there are gypsies out to fleece ...we did not see any during the 2 nights we were there. the amenities and look of the hotel were fabulous with the these of Rolex watches being incorporated. the breakfast was one of the best we had during our 13 day tour of Italy. The staff was very co operative and even grilled my bread with cheese as I am a vegetarian. All in all a memorable experience and FULL VALUE for money.

We are honeymooners who were staying at the awful b&b Casa Rovai? We hated that place and just wanted to get out of there. We found this hotel where they had a room at a decnt price, call to make cheaper reservations, and it is beautiful. We could not be happier with our choice to switch. The bed is AMAZING! Thank goodness!!! Stay here if you can.

L'O is a great hotel. We were greated with a smile and a beautiful lobby. We arrived early so our room was not ready which was ok since they took our bags for us. Once our room was ready we walked into a room with 20 foot ceilings and all of the amenities you could want! The bathroom was clean and shiek and the bed was extremely comfortable. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone staying in this beautiful city. If there is one negative, I would say the breakfast could be improved, but still servicable.

Stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. Our room was large, nicely furnished and had a very large modern bath. The location is 5 minutes from the train station and 5 minutes to the Duomo on Piazza Santa Maria Novella. They have a nice bar, and serve an above average breakfast. Very nice, responsive service plus free Wifi makes it a great package. Deserves its high rating

This hotel is wonderful! Staff was helpful and friendly, made all our dinner reservations and got us taxis. Very clean, great location, 2 minute walk to the Duoma and right next to beautiful Santa Maria Novella Church. Has all the amenities you could want and a great bar inside the hotel. One of the few with free internet and gym facilities.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and thought the hotel was fantastic. Very nice room, bed, bathroom and a very cool/sleek feel to the hotel itself.

I also loved that it was relatively close to the train station considering we both arrived and left Florence by train. It was a great location from which to explore Florence (5 minute walk to Duomo, maybe 10 minutes to the Ponte Vechio but also seemed far away from the craziness around the center of the city which was nice.

Free Wifi and free access to downstairs computer was awesome and the staff were all great. I would highly reccomend and certainly stay here again.
