Nice location, walking distance to everything! Rooms are a very nice size, the room I had overlooked the piazza square and the Basicillia, enjoyed people watching from the window. Staff was very friendly and helpful in coordinating side trips.

Great hotel, great location. Everything in Florence is walkable, even so this location was a 5 minute walk to the train station and an easy taxi ride to/from airport because of its location. We stayed a total of 5 nights and had 2 great rooms. I booked the hotel myself directly online and they were very responsive. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious; the breakfast rooms/staff were lovely and welcoming.

Room Tip: Asked for a double superior with a view of the piazza. I was worried it would be noisy but the wind...

This Hotel is one of our favorites, Great location a short walk from the train station and bus terminals. But just far enough away for them not to be heard. THe hotel is on Santa Maria Square with the Cathederal out the front, A great view. Also very close to all shopping and food.
This hotel has Italian and French themes and furnishings throughout be it the art or textiles on the walls . Staff here are very helpful and will confirm bookings,give advice with no fuss.

Great location and hotel. We traveled from Florence to Venice to Siena and back to Florence and this was the best hotel we stayed at. It was close to the train station and easy walk to all the sites. The breakfast was great in the hotel with scrambled eggs available. The room was wonderful with a great view of the Santa Maria Novella. We loved this place and have no reservations going back. The staff was absolutely great.

This was my favorite hotel of those I stayed in while in Italy in October. As a single female traveler, location is important to me. This was near the train station and in an open piazza with ample dining in the neighborhood. In good weather, it's an easy walk to many of Florence's sights. A room with a view of an alley is the norm form most singles and 'superior' rooms. A view of the Piazza comes at a premium. I did, though have a rooftop view, which made up for it, especially at night.

The greatest challenge was to actually find the hotel. There is a small brass sign on the wall to the right of the front door, which is blocked in part by a shrub and cars or taxis parked in front of the hotel. Once inside, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff is multilingual an extremely helpful.

My room was comfortable and a bit larger than many I found in my travels. The bed was firm but comfortable and the room was very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Either pay a little more for a room with a view of the piazza or ask for a room on the 5th floor.

A spotlessly clean and comfortable hotel which is perfectly located directly on a beautiful piazza and within a few minutes of the majority of the main Firenze attractions and within a 5 minute stroll from the Santa Maria Novella train station.
Our room was quite small but nicely decorated and more than adequate for a 4 night stay.Excellent breakfast with both hot and cold choices

This return trip was with my husband and son. First time here was a last minute find when I was stuck in Italy during the volcano a few years ago. I had to bring my family back here. Staff was helpful. This is a perfect location I think. Walk from the train is easy so no need for taxi. Easy to walk through all of Florence from here. Breakfasts were fabulous. Rooms are very nice. They booked the Uffizzi tickets for us for a small charge. We then skipped the long lines. I would go back to this hotel in a flash!
