“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

Acquaintances set us up to expect a charming sojourn in this Art Nouveau manse in the gracious San Miniato neighborhood. Our third floor suite was furnished in high kitsch, festooned with brothel mirrors, and featured a balcony into nowhere: the French doors opened into a windowless closet without a ceiling. My sleeping couch left barely enough room to open the armoire door. The espresso machine was under repair during the perfunctory breakfast. Way overpriced.

We were very pleased with the hotel, which we picked due to reviews and our need to find a hotel near town where we could park our rental car. We stayed two nights. The hotel has character and our room with private bath was great. The staff and breakfast buffet were wonderful (and they make great cuppuccino!). Paolo - an owner - was always friendly and helpful with advice. My wife's luggage arrived two days after we did and Paolo was fantastic in helping organize its eventual delivery. It is a 20 minute walk into (and back from) the historic center of Florence or you can can bus service from nearby. We would definitely return here.

We really enjoyed staying here. The hotel had lots of character and everything was of a good standard, including breakfast. There is even parking which was handy for us. It was easy to walk to lots of the main sites and attractions. We would definitely stay there again.

The hotel has a character, very nice, quiet and clean. Sfaff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We got surprisingly large room, Wi-Fi was working and free breakfast was good. Hotel has small parking lot which was important for us because we took a rental car in Florence. We are very pleased with this hotel and would definetely stay there again if we're in Florence.

Room Tip: One of the room on the last floor has a funny balcony which is like a walk-in closet without roof. i...

WE found this perfect for a couple of days in Florence. The location was great: a lovely quite place within walking distance of central Florence but there was also a frequent and quick bus service if we were feeling tired. Staff were really friendly and helpful: a succession of really nice people on the desk. Rooms were very stylish, comfortable and clean.

This hotel is excellent value and in a great location.

Set in a quiet neighbourhood close to the river, it's a pleasent 15 minute stroll in to town or a short bus ride.

The rooms are typical 3 star: very comfy and clean.

The staff were very friendly and kind. If you are looking for a great value hotel and a good nights sleep, then this is the place!

My wife and I spent two night in this nice hotel.
We prefer that the hotel will be placed out side the city center and will have a close public transportation ability. This is exactly what we got in Liberty hotel. It is 15 minutes bus drive from the city center and it takes 5 minutes walking to get to the bus station (the bus arrives once in 10 minutes or so).
The room was nice, the breakfast was OK as well.
The price was fair (99 Euro per night + 15 Euro per night for car parking).
The most impressive part of this hotel is the service level of the staff. They were welcoming and very helpful. They have pointed us exactly to the highlights that should be seen in Florence in two days time.
