Reviewed 2 August 2013

Smell,damp,crunchy carpet,fleas,did I say smell ! Banging doors,door to terrace rotting away,walls look like an old nicotine stained pub, and have I mentioned the smell !!!!! Would I stay here again No.
Friendly staff
I think they should refund me in full to compensate my wife and I for each bug bite we got while at this hotel.
If you still want to stay here its up to you.

Loved it! Staff are very helpful with any questions you may have, location is great, food is wonderful and overall everything is great. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the train station with trains to Pisa and Florence.

We stayed three nights here during our Florence vacation. The location was wonderful - right near the station and a few minute walk from the Duomo. The staff is very helpful and speaks English if you need it. They have a pool but we were too busy checking out art to use it. The restaurant is decent but we thought the breakfast exceeded our expectations. The hotel was a bit dated by US standards but was exceptionally clean. The bathrooms had all amenities we'd expect in the US including a hair dryer and enclosed shower.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side (courtyard side) are nice and quiet - no street noise. If you can swing it...

Nice hotel but some need for refurbishing. A little wear and tear overall.
In the middle of all the attractions.
Balcony in room was super. Roof balcony very nice but disturbing noise from ventilation/high pitch note.

I stayed 4 nights in mid-April, 2013, travelling solo. I felt comfortable and secure right away, & they have a luggage holding area by the front desk which was helpful upon arrival & again on departure. The staff were friendly, welcoming, & accomodating. I learned it's a former monastery from the 13th century, and my quiet, clean, comfortable room had that "feel" to it. The bed linens reminded me of cloths used on church altars! The view was of the pool area and red tile roofs including a church, and their bells ringing certain times every day was heaven for me! The negative was that my toilet was tempermental to flush, but otherwise, I say "Stay here". I liked having a nice restaurant on site, & food was quite good.

It is a beautiful place. It was clean an the staff was helpful and great. It is centrally located because it was just 2 blocks from the train station. It is walking distance from all the museums and attractions. It has a roof patio bar and the view was breath taking. This hotel is highly recommended

Stayed here for couple of days on way back from villa stay in Tuscan countryside - so was looking for somewhere without the madness of tourists - this hit the mark. It's a bit tatty but we just couldn't help liking it. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, it has a pool (which we had to encourage them to open in an early wet but sunny weekend). It has a lovely rooftop bar with a great view over the city. It has some fabulous 70's touches in it's design (I'm guessing that was the last time it was completely refurbished) - it could almost be a hip hotel (it's not). It was clean and room cleaners were very thorough.
