“Great value Hotel in suburbs of Florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

This hotel stood out cost wise as we searched what were otherwise very expensive hotels in Florence and although it was quite a way from the historical centre, the excellent buses served it very well. The hotel is an old convent and still has an historic feel, although does not feel dated. The rooms were large, simply furnished yet equipped well enough with comfortable beds, LCD tv and hair dryers. Breakfast was very good quality, usual Italian offerings with a Tuscan twist, all fresh and very nice. Evening meals though are not, we struggled one night as we spent too long in Florence and were too tired to get dressed for dinner, so ate pizza from the restaurant which was just rubbish, straight out of a packet and I think even the waiter was embarrassed to serve it up. Advise you not to eat here. Swimming pool was quite good, although the grounds could do with a little attention. Now to location. All things equal, the is far cheaper than anything else we saw in Florence, so would definitely attract me back, but there was not a lot of restaurant choice around, particularly Sunday night, so you may be better eating in Florence itself. Buses are great. Number 10 from Piazza San Marco's goes right past about every 15 minutes and number 17 from the Santa Novella station dropped off about 100 yards away. Tickets available from the hotel or shops with signs for 1e20. Would recommend if you are looking for blue for money and are happy moving around a bit to get it...

Hotel nice and affordable in expensive Florence, located in a residential area 20 minutes from Florence centre. Our room was large and had a balcony.room 317,The outside table could have benefited from a parasol as the sun hit the balcony hard. Air conditioning was brilliant effective and very quiet. This was necessary in August. Mini bar in room was good but room should have had glasses not flimsy plastic cups in a 4 star hotel. Staff were helpful and breakfast was very good. The hotel needs to cater for people eating at night. The menu was limited and more suitable for a snack. They need to address this particularly in August. Most restaurants in the area closed for a summer break.The hotel caters for coach parties but this didn't affect us as they seem to have a good system to minimize noise and the effect on other guests.The pool was shut for 3 days for maintenance while we were there and did look poorly maintained when we arrived with cloudy water, When it reopened it looked a different pool.Staff could give the pool area a bit of TLC the grass is dead or dry if you are going to have a pool then it needs maintaining. The pool was great to have in August. Near the hotel was the bus into Florence a public swimming pool and sports centre. A large Lidl supermarket was 10 minutes down the road there were also a few local shops and a pharmacy.If you use buses you can purchase tickets from reception.There is also a computer for use in a side room off reception.The hotel was very clean.

Room Tip: balcony room 317

Recommended hotel: Nice hotel, kind staff, comfortable, quiet, not far away from the centre (20 min of bus), with a refreshing swimming pool, available car park places, and with a great (varied) breakfast

Be sure to stay here if possible.
What a pleasant surprise for our 2nd stay in Italy! This hotel is in a quant neighborhood and maybe a little hard to find; use your GPS, but it is worth it! Room are large as is the bath, the shower is a little small but roomy enough to get the job done. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. We awoke to the crowing of a rooster and sing of birds -, fantastic.
We ventured out for dinner taking the advice of our bartender and directions of desk staff. Good recommendation, we had a lovely meal. Prices were reasonable and constant, unlike POPPI.

Nice hotel as we were on a coach the location was fine although a bit far out if you were independent ,they did a very nice welcome for our Titan tour,only had breakfast and that was fine with a fair choice on the table. The dining area was small but pleasant ,only the chairs at the tables which were iron with curly tops,which you either caught your clothes on or your arm not so good when carrying your breakfast but only a minor point,bedroom was fine clean,staff friendly .Must say I did feel the entrance to the hotel was not very good for the coach taking skill to enter and exit.the garden and pool area were in need of TLC,but to be fair I think they were redoing some bits,really would not have wanted to use the pool.

The 35 members of our tour stayed here for three nights. The former convent is located in a quiet residential area; the grounds are pleasant with an outdoor pool and a selection of gloomy statuary hiding in the greenary. The rooms are large, modern with comfortable beds, the bathroom is small and the shower a bit of a squeeze. Unfortunately you could hear your neighbours using their bathrooms which woke me up at 6 am! The breakfast was excellent and the staff helpful.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the front have the better views.
