“Excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

We only stayed for one night, and we wish we could have stayed for longer. This hotel is in the perfect location, and the staff were all ver professional and helpful. We happened to stay during the recent cycling event that had Florence split in half, and we had to leave much earlier than we wanted to, in order to make it past the barriers that were in place for the race. Paulus on Reception was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed in order to avoid delays due to the cycling event. We were also recommended a local restaurant that we really enjoyed for dinner. It was a lovely stay and I will stay here again the next time I'm in Florence.

What a fantastic hotel. Firstly, and as mentioned numerous times on the TA reviews, the location of the hotel is excellent. It is very central in Florence and a short walk to all of the main attractions; particularly the Duomo which is literally a two minute walk away.

The hotel itself is centred around a 5th Century tower and we found the hotel to be very stylish throughout. We asked for a room upgrade as we were there on a special occasion and were given a very nice top floor room (329) overlooking the courtyard at the hotel entrance. We stayed for 3 nights b&b and breakfast was very good.

I must say that we found the staff at the front desk to be very helpful and friendly throughout our stay and they were very good at organising tickets for the major museums and giving advice over which attractions to visit. We also benefitted from staff recommendations for places to eat during our stay.

Florence is a genuinely beautiful city and the hotel is simply superb in all respects. It is a modern, stylish, hotel in a great location – perfect for exploring the city. Hopefully we will visit Florence again soon and if we do this will definitely be the hotel we stay at!

Found this hotel to be ideal for our trip to Florence. We only had a few days and were not going outside the city (Pisa, Tuscany, etc may require a different location) so being in the center of town to walk to any points of interest was ideal. Just a few steps from the Duomo and a short walk to Ponte Vecchio.

The hotel itself was beautiful, very modern. We were upgraded to a suite, bar none the biggest shower we saw in Europe (I'm a big guy, this was about the only shower I fit in on our trip). Beyond the bathroom, the entire room was beautiful and very comfortable.

The staff was also very helpful and friendly, no problem giving us walking directions or sharing tips of what we should do. Overall this was a quality hotel in the heart of Florence.

My husband and I stayed recently with a group of 3 other couples. Hotel is in a wonderful location, steps away from the Duomo, restaurants, wine bars, gelato shops and shoe stores! From the minute we arrived we were treated wonderfully. I thought the staff and service was excellent. The room was slightly small by American standards but beautiful and comfortable. Be prepared for the church bells starting at 7 am which we could hear in our room. It was probably just the location of the room. We were so exhausted it wasn't much of an issue.

Breakfast was included and had an assortment of cereals, muffins, breads, juices, and hot dishes such as eggs and bacon. Excellent cappuccino!

Front desk staff was very helpful. We asked for luggage to be shipped home and it arrived home in great condition. We asked for directions and restaurant recommendations and the hotel desk staff was always very professional and accommodating.

We enjoyed drinks at the bar several nights and the bartender and wait staff was wonderful.

Overall an excellent experience and we will be sure to stay again when in Florence.

Room Tip: Our room faced the Disney store and you can hear the church bells in the morning. Not sure if it is...

This hotel was perfect in every way. The location is ideal, just steps from the Duomo and Piazza della Repubblica, and near the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio. The room was nicely decorated, and the bathroom had all the amenities and a large walk-in shower. There were plenty of towels (a rarity in Italy) and terry robes. Breakfast was located in a large, bright dining room, and included assorted meats, cheeses, fresh fruits, bakery items, yogurt, cereals, scrambled eggs, bacon and more. The desk staff was attentive and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence.

We stayed throughout Italy for two weeks. The service and accomidations at this hotel were tops. From this hotel you can walk to almost anywhere, return mid-day for a break, and off again. I was provided an upgrade to a room with a view of the street. Five star to the room and service. It is a quiet well equipped hotel in perfect condition and clean. We will return for another stay. DO NOT pass up this historic hotel when in Florence.

Room Tip: We liked to street view with windows open in the evening. Only thing missing is an upper floor bar...
