Good four star hotel. Great buffet breakfast including cooked English in that classic Mediterranean style. On the river about 10 minutes stroll to the cathedral. Love the weather and riverside bars. A great break.

This is a really classy hotel. Chic, modern, clean. Beds were good, bathrooms nice. Breakfast was the usual - croissants, fruit, eggs etc. We stayed on a Sunday night and right across the road there was tango dancing for locals. It was an outdoor bar where the locals came and danced. Cheap drinks and fun to watch. Enjoyed our stay.

Very good location if you are in Firenze by car because you don't need to drive to Zona Traffico Limitato. Near Santa Croce, not far to / from Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio. Hop on hop off bus ( line A ) stops 100 m from the hotel. Modern, renovated hall, cozy 6th floor and rooms with terrace. Convenient parking, pleasant staff.

Room Tip: 6th floor deluxe with terrace!

We managed to get two adjoining rooms with a small living area between them which suited our family of five perfectly. The location is nice, very close to the river and within a short travel time to most of the locations. Food (breakfast only) was great, staff helpful. Only minor negative is that the lifts are very small, very slow/sometimes not working and some of them didn't go to our floor. But the room made up for it, with slightly restricted views of the cathedrals and the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a view as some rooms face the less interesting part of the city, and the higher the better.

My husband and I were very pleased with the hotel location: close to museum,III Duomo and more sites. The #14 bus stop is around the back side of hotel. The staff are top notched; very pleasant, very helpful in arranging our reservations to the museums, providing bus and walking directions. The room was 5 stars: very clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast buffet was 5 stars!...so much variety and top quality. The lobby was spacious and always secure and clean. WiFi is free in the lobby area. I would recommend this hotel for others to stay.

This is a busy hotel on a busy street, but traffic and noise are to be expected in a central location. As many reviewers stated, the main sights are all within walking distance. We stayed here for 2 nights on our Trafalgar tour, and we were out a lot, so I can't say that I remember much about our room. The lobby is large, and there were always people at the chairs and at the reception desk. Breakfast buffet was good, but as it got later the dining room became so crowded that sometimes it was hard to find a place for two people to sit together. Perhaps it was because other tour groups were staying here at the same time we were. There was a good variety of choices at the buffet but when some of the food got low the staff was slow to refill the items. There is a park across the street that borders the Arno, and it was nice to take an evening stroll.

Had a great stay here with the location being pretty central to most of the tourist locations. It's across the river from the Palazzo Vecchio. There are eateries and convenience stores close by as well.

The only "hassle" I had was that the concierge wasn't able to help deliver a postcard for me which I was more than willing to pay the necessaries. Good breakfast spread and overall good stay!

Room Tip: As it is right at the corner of a busy street, try avoiding the lower floors.
