My boyfriend and I stayed at this location for three nights. The reasons I booked this hotel is that I had read an article in a magazine about this new Spanish chain and its founders and really wanted to try one of their hotels.
I booked through a third party website at a very good rate.
The hotel is to the north of the main sights, which are easily reached on foot in less than 15 minutes. It is also conveniently located near good eateries and the Centrale market which offers excellent Tuscan treats. It is also just a 10 minutes walk from the main train station.
The reception staff were all exceptionally welcoming and our room was ready (1 PM).
The decor in the lobby is very colourful and cool and seems to have been newly renovated.
We were on the 1st floor, facing the main street.
The room was a bit dark and small, though the high ceiling managed to not make it too claustrophobic. The wallpaper and the bed looked very chic and seemed new. The bathroom was nothing special but very clean.
The bed was very (too) soft and was actually two beds put together, so if you tried getting too close to your partner you would sink in the middle.
The a/c didn't seem to work but I think they deactivate it at this time of the year, and because the room was right in the main street opening the window was out of the question as it could get noisy.
Breakfast was buffet-style and not very good. The first morning our coffees were prepared by the waiters, and were good. However the next two days we were directed to a coffee machine which had awful coffees. The juices were equally as bad (there was even some sort of syrup at the bottom of the glass) and the pastries on the last day were stale.
So overall I feel I got what I paid for and was in general satisfied and would recommend this hotel if the orice is good.
