“Quite good, but let down by a couple of things”
Reviewed 21 August 2011

Very helpful receptionists led us to 2 outstanding restaurants. Bus into town OK and reasonably priced as hotel in suburbs. Let down by small dirty and cold pool. Poor breakfast in inadequate sized room - get up early to get a table!

The hotel is located at the outskirts of Firence. About 7km away from downtown area. By taxi about 15 min. and about 13€ oneway.
The hotel itself has a swimming pool (outdoor) and 4 floors with about 90 rooms.
The rooms are very small and half of them are single rooms with small beds (200cm x 80cm).
The bathroom is small as well and the shower cabin is very small!
All rooms are clean and incl. flat TV, hair dryer and air condition.
Wifi internet is for free if your resident in the hotel.
The breakfast is very simple and the bar closes at 11p.m. There is no restaurant in the hotel.
At least there is a small street just behind the hotel and during Monday to Friday lots of cars use this street on their way to town.

In total: if you need a hotel just to stay at night it is okay. If you expect special services and if you look for a central located hotel choose another offer.

When we drove up to the hotel I was amazed about how lovely it looked, the pictures of the hotel are exactly how it looks with gorgeous statues dotted around and the flowers in full bloom. Once we entered the hotel, the receptionist was a little moody but did everything in her power to help us, she seemed a little annoyed that we asked for the pool to be opened as she thought it was too cold for swimming. (which actually turned out to be true as the pool is obviously not heated and was absolute torture to even put your feet in) We spent the time on the sun loungers playing cards and soaking up the scenery near the pool instead of swimming in it. The rooms were very spacious even though it was a double rather than twin which we asked for, to give them credit they did offer to separate the beds to create two singles but that would have taken a longer time. We checked in early which was very handy as our flight took us in around an hour early. The view was lovely and the bathroom was big, the shower did however leak through the shower door which made the floor wet but that wasnt a big problem at all as there were many towels to soak it up! Free safe which was a plus and a television with some good english channels (BBC news, Sky news, MTV) the wifi was also very good in the room. The only issue with the room was that we couldnt get the air conditioning to work and we couldnt have the windows open all night as there wasnt a mosquito net and i inevitably got eaten alive due to this. We also had room service one day which was very good but with a charge that wasnt on the notice.. only €5.50 but it would have been nice to know beforehand! The breakfast was typical continental which isnt my favourite, but the self service toast got me through the day and also the nice yoghurt. Around the hotel is a tobacconist where you can buy your bus tickets, two very nice restaurants and a particularly nice ice cream parlour! The bus stop is near to the ice cream parlour which is less than a 5 minute walk. The bus journey to the town is less than 20 minutes which is nothing. I had a lovely time there and would definitely go back.

The hotel is well out of the city centre, but that is a blessing. To be away from the millions of tourists in Florence is good. Free parking is available on site. Service was good, desk staff helpful. Room clean and adequate. A pleasent view from room up local farmland. Breakfast limited but adequate. 2 good local restaurants within 500m. Bus service to city centre every 20 min allowed us to share local experience. Would gladly stay again.

Nice garden. Spacious room. Clean and Comfortable. Wifi was good. There're quite a lot of stairs and good distance to walk from our room to anywhere (dining room, reception, etc.) It wasn't a problem for us but might be for older guests. Location of hotel is not in the town centre.

The hotel is located near the city center and has easy access to highways and the city. The rooms are big with everything you need. Everything is modern and works. The staff is very helpful and the hotels settings are wonderful. Breakfast was ok, nothing to rave about but enough for the business traveler. Free Wifi in all rooms and are of a good quality. Bathroom is a good size and modern. The beds are comfortable. I had a great stay.

A great location particularly for a summer visit to Florence when a swimming pool is a real bonus and if you are lucky enough to have one of the rooms with a large balcony then all the better! Access to the city centre by bus was very easy and the overall facilities, while on the basic side, were perfectly adequate particularly considering the cost of the rooms.
Our only slight complaint related to the showers - there seemed to be some intermittent problems with the hot/cold water. We would recommend this hotel particularly for families with young children.
