“Classic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

This was an easy choice from the photos and it was even better when we got there. Soft creams very Italian style. Big welcome at the reception. The room was just great and was cleaned and serviced every day. Location is bang on, with it close enough to central places of interest to be able to walk around nearly all of it. Ten minutes to the station. Extra details made our stay the best one this year. Derserved success for this classic.

Thank you for appreciating our Italian style, this makes us very happy because it is not a great sacrifice for us to be ourselves. is rather difficult to communicate what you are and that you can do. has been our pleasure to serve you and make your acquaintance. we hope you will come back soon and visit us in Florence, this city has always been so beloved by English friends

From the caring and kind welcome on arrival to leaving after a delicious breakfast we couldn't have wished for more. The hotel has just been redecorated and refurbished. It is spotlessly clean, lots of lovely towels and toiletries, a fridge, plenty of space and a very comfortable bed. The staff are wonderful. We originally were give a room with a shower, and were able to change it to one with a bath - all part of the chilling process, a soak in bubbles. We had a wonderful time and will be back.

dear guest,
this is definitely one of the strengths that we pursue. being Italian, without wanting to copy anybody, but learning from everyone and adding to the knowledge of others, especially to those who are different need of the foreign umilltà, imagination, which makes finding the solutions, the spirit of the work typically Italian, it makes me so glad you appreciated this note in our accolgienza. we are proud to be Italian.
back to visit soon, even if the journey is long, we're waiting.

one of the best hotels i have stayed in. very clean and professional and exceptional value for money. about 10 minutes walk from centre and train station. breakfast service would have been better if staff on duty.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in end of November. I could not be happier with our choice ! The decor is simply beautiful. Very elegant - very comfortable. The bathroom is a little cramped with almost no shelf space, but that is not such a big issue. The staff is so friendly and actually go out of their way to have a conversation. They offered to help us with booking our tours, gave us advice on what to see, etc. Very delightful people ! The breakfast is pretty good with plenty of choices for meats, cereal, pastries, juices, coffee, etc. Wifi is very fast - a little bit annoying to have to log in to the internet every single time but you get used to it. Great location - we walked to all of the sights like the duomo, the uffizi, accademia etc. Overall - we couldn't have picked a better place to stay in Florence. This hotel is even better than most 4 stars we have stayed in.

dear friends the Emirates. It was an honor for us to host you in our hotel and your satisfaction pays us a lot. Hotels of your regions are fabulous, we know, a thousand and one nights. our little three star does not want to be compared to big hotels, but we are pleased that our customers these three stars are always shining.

Repeating what others have already written. We stayed here for a special birthday for four nights. Hotel was immaculate in its furnishings, its cleanliness, the helpfulness of the staff and in all other aspects. Our room on the fourth floor had a balcony and was first class, the ensuite luxurious. We walked daily to the palaces and museums of this really interesting town, fortunately the weather was kind. So, as usual in Italy, we had a fabulous time.

Room Tip: Fourth floor rooms had access to balconies.

dear sir, thank you for your stay, it may be of little imagination to repeat what has already been written, but believe me it is very pleasant for those who receive and those who read. and 'as a Christmas card, it's always nice to receive a thought, its very pleasing to me because I appreciated your satisfaction every day when visiting our city. I'll wait in the warm season next spring. Greetings and best wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
