We were looking to stay for a few days near the airport as we had a lot of family and an early morning flight. Kids like this hotel: little welcome gift, comfy sofa-bed, pool, Xbox, and a play area. As the hotel is geared for kids they felt comfortable and were happy to hang around. There are large tour groups at this hotel but they are geared up for this and we did not have any issues at all (they even had a somewhat seperate eating area so service did not slow down for us).
The breakfast was good value but keep in mind it is fairly basic and will not win awards (prety low cost/low quality hot foods). However, we are all very happy with the food overall especially one large family dinner - excellent food and wine. The only down side is the very early morning breakfast (4am to 6am): they should not bother, it was melba toast and a kettle basically, this was a waste of time.
The pool was cold but we swam both days 2 times per day, kids loved it plus there is a lifeguard on duty. They also had table football and table-tennis. There is a very basic gym but enough for a cardio workout , basic weights and stretching.
Service was excellent, the bar man we saw everywhere and he was super friendly and helpful.
The rooms were clean, in good order and we all slept well. Comfy beds/bedding and good bathrooms. All 3 rooms we had were nice.
The hotel was easy access to Florence by bus (15-20mins) and super close to the Airport (at most a 5 min drive).
We loved the hotel and were happy overall.
