Reviewed 12 April 2013

Good position in Florence for the attractions. Typical italian style hotel, clean and tidy, the room was very clean. Wifi was good, with reasonable speed and good connectivity.

The breakfast consisted of cold meats and cheeses, and fresh breads, the norm you would expect.

The only downside for us was the room was not the best...(39) as it was small and dark as the window looked out the back of the hotel and unless you went right up to the window you could not see the sky! If I came again, I would avoid this room!

The people on reception were both friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: don't chose room 39!

Stayed here last year with my fiancé for 4 nights, really well situated and such a romantic little street, great for exploring and not too noisy at night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend - price for location is amazing.

Location,location,location! Situated in the quiet via San Antonino, this 3star hotel should be a 4 star establishment. It is clean and cosy, we had a huge room on the third floor. Well equipped bathroom, good quality bed&linen. The breakfast started at 07:30 but we had to eat at 07:00 in order to attend a conference and was easily accommodated. Close to station, churches, piazze, restaurants! Will never stay elsewhere again! Good value for money!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better rooms, facing away from the street

Staying in Florence on business, and hotel very close to city centre. Hotel is scrupulously clean and well appointed for 3 star. Friendly staff who arranged courier deliveries ahead of arrival, recognized me as soon as I arrived due to conversations about couriers, printed documents for meetings etc. Free wifi is good (not superfast) for business use and email. Breakfast buffet good. I would recommend staying here if in Florence on business and a budget.

This hotel was lovely, we stayed 4nights and really enjoyed our stay. We arrived by train from Venice and it was an easy walk to the hotel. The hotel is in a great location , restaurants, markets and the Duomo nearby . Our room was at the back of the hotel and facing a small courtyard which was a lovely outlook. The staff were exceptional , the breakfast buffet superb.
Would really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

This is a very lovely hotel in a very good location. It is a few minutes walk from the train station. If you are taking the train to or from Florence. It is very convenient. Also, if you are booking a tour outside of Florence, it is where the group meets. Everything is within walking distance including the Duomo, shops and restaurants.
Our hotel room was very nice and clean. It was not very roomy but it was adequate. The hotel staff were all very nice. The hotel is right on a busy street but we never had any problem with noise. We slept so good during our entire stay here. The bed is very comfortable. Its just weird that each time you leave, you have to give your room key back and ask for it again each time you come back. The only problem we had is when we started smelling cigarette smoke in the hallway and it was coming in to our room. It's a non-smoking hotel but it seemed like the people next door were smoking in their room. We complained at the front desk but the woman was very hesitant to check on the people next door. We didn't hear back from them about it.
Regarding their breakfast buffet, it was exceptional. The food was delicous with many variety and it was well supplied. The service was excellent. I would stay at this hotel again when I return to Florence.
