We arrived from Cinque Terre to the hotel in the afternoon. The room costs us 140 euros (breakfast included) plus 8 euros (cash only) city tax. It wasn't very hard to find. The free parking space was half empty so it was pretty easy for us. When we arrived, they couldn't quite find our hotel booking, so they put us to the lift with the staff (seems that they have lot of available room) but the lift door wasn't closed until 5 minutes coz they were still confirming our reservation. The receptionist was lost for a moment but then they have found it and the staff showed us the room. Our Identification Card was left in the reception (for them to make a copy). The room was big enough with a big balcony with an amazing view especially at night. The room and bathroom was very clean. The air-conditioning was working very well. The wifi connection (password was at the bedroom) was great. The staff wasn't rude nor friendly expect from the staff (man) during breakfast who were very funny and friendly. The location of the hotel is good for those who are arriving by car. They have a free sparking space. (Parking space in Florence can be very expensive.) There is also a bus stop nearby but the waiting time can take a while so you have to ask the reception so that you can manage your time very well. We walked from the hotel to the city-center. It took us 20 minutes and with a nice weather, you wouldn't really mind since it is a nice neighborhood. At night, we took a cab which costs us 10 euros and fair enough, I would say. Overall experience was good enough. I wouldn't recommend it to those who wants to be in the center. This is a nice hotel in a quiet side of Florence. We were traveling around Tuscany by car so our choices of accommodation depends on many things such as parking space and so on. The hotel is good enough and 4 star for European standards.
