“Clean, affordable, convenient”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

This is the perfect hotel for anyone visiting Florence to sightsee and tour around. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, bilingual and easily reached by email. Breakfast offerings are fresh, coffee made to order is strong and hot. Rooms are spic and span, beds very comfortable. Occasional late night street noise is unavoidable due to central location, but it did not interfere with our sleep whatsoever. If you're looking for plush decor, white glove service or a lobby bar, look elsewhere and pay accordingly. We chose to spend our Euros on meals and excursions and were completely comfortable with this highly affordable hotel for sleep, showers, breakfast and a midday stopover to rest our feet.

Wonderful stay. Great location, close to train station, Duomo, restaurants, stores and markets. Everything is in walking distance. Everyone at hotel was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there next time in Florence.

I stayed in Florence several times in the days before I discovered tripadvisor. Thanks to tripadvisor, this is by far the best hotel I have visited.

Location is excellent. Seconds away from the Duomo and an easy stroll from the train station (even with luggage).

Judging by the excellent room we had (413 - which was very quiet with the window closed but not much of a view), this hotel is very much at the top end of 3*.

I don't have a bad word to say about the place (except maybe the cappuccino could be better - but it is acceptable). The staff / proprietors at the reception desk are particularly friendly. This hotel is way ahead of its competition in the centre of town. It exceeded my expectations and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Very conveniently located just a few minutes' walk from the station. Ideal for sightseeing and shopping. Can't be better located. First impression of entrance and lift is a bit offputting but the helpful staff make up for it. The first day/night I found the room depressing. Considering the amount of money we paid the rooms could be a little more cheerful. Beige walls, beige curtains, beige lampshades, beige doors, dull, uninteresting pictures on the wall, old fashioned brown wardrobe....I've seen hospital rooms which looked more cheerful. This is such a pity. a splash of orange cushions, orange patterned curtains and some colourful posters would give the rooms a lift. i am hereby offering my artistic help to the owners in exchange for a couple of days' lodging :-). After a few days I got used to it, but it has so much potential. Another suggestion is to invest in a magnifying mirror in the bathroom and a non-slip shower base. Room 408 also needs hot water pressure in wash hand basin seen to as just a trickle came out. Notwithstanding these suggestions we spent a marvellous couple of days in Florence.

No pretentions here, but a good location, clean functional rooms and good breakfast. Staff on reception and breakfast were very helpful. A bit noisy with the window open but that's what you get in the middle of Florence.
A/C worked well.
Easy walk from the station if you have wheeled luggage and near all major attractions.

This hotel was perfect for us since we needed a big room and a nice clean place to rest after a long day of sight seeing. The hotel is centrally located and a short walk to major attractions and the train station. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. They even let us keep the room until 3pm on the day of check out. The breakfast was fine. There was good variety and plenty to eat. The coffee was made to order. I hope to return soon!
