“Great location & friendly, helpful staff”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days and were delighted by it's location. It's in the heart of Florence and very reasonably priced. The room was nice and faced a courtyard, so was fairly quiet. The breakfast was included and very good. The staff were all very nice and helpful. It was also great that they had 3 computers available for use by the guests at no charge. I would definitely stay there again if I am every back in Florence.

As you step out of the hotel, to your left would be the Duomo, turn right and that will take you to Ponte Vecchio. Shops, and quaint trattorias abound outside this hotel. The room we had was large and spacious, bathroom was very clean and breakfast was more than adequate.

Room Tip: I did not sleep well because of the noise out in the street at 2, 3am. Then at 4 or 5 am I think, th...

We, three girls, stayed in a four beds room (1 double, 2 singles). The room was nice, high walls, dark furniture, quite comfy beds, very clean. The bathroom was a bit outdated, but clean, too. We came to Florence by car. The hotel offers a parking service. You have to drive in front of the hotel and a guy from the parking service picks up your car and brings it back when you leave. This is quite adventurous as the hotel is situated in one of the main and very crowded shopping streets (directly over the Disney store). We suggest: follow the driving instructions given on the homepage of the hotel AND don't panick, just drive :) The location of the hotel is really unbeatable, perfect for sightseeing and going out at night.

The hotel was the absolute perfect location! Steps from all the sights. The breakfast was good and the staff was helpful.

There were a few nights when we were kept awake by the festivities in the street. But the noise was very light, and did not prevent us from getting a good night's rest.

We absolutely recommend the hotel!

Very nice and cozy hotel in the city center. Staff is very friendly. Very convenient location for sightseeing, walking distance from everywhere! Easy to find , reachable by foot from Santa Maria Novella Station (about 7 min) . Clean cozy rooms. Free wi-fi though not very fast but OK for surfing. Good breakfast . My window faced inner yard so didn’t hear noise from the busy street. Good value for money, would recommend it!

This hotel is in an excellent location within 5 min by taxi from the train station (9 Euros) or you can even arrive walking but it will be tricky to carry the baggage trough the small roads.
The location is 1 block from two main squares (where the main tower and cathedral is and the Republica square is) and less than 7 min walking distance of the main museums.
Everything is walking distance and there are many good restaurants near by.
The rooms are simple but very clean and the good thing is that they have a room for the whole family (2 adults and 2 kids).

The staff here is excellent, very friendly and welcoming! Perfect location that is within walking distance to everything, even the train station, although I would recommend taking the short cab ride if you have heavy luggage. Rooms are bright and clean. Free wi-fi for Rick Steves readers and a minimal charge if not. There are also 2 computers with internet access for guests in the lobby. FYI the elevators are quite small and the blow dryer in the bathroom is basically just a hose in the wall, these are not major issues and were actually pretty comical - but its always good to know before you go!
