Reviewed 18 March 2014

We found it very easily, two minutes walk from the central train station. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a friendly lady who was very helpful. The whole hotel is traditional and wooden but this gives it character.
The room was huge, light, clean and tidy and everything we needed was there. We went to the bar late one night. Even though he was due to close, the barman made us our drinks (very reasonably priced) and stayed and chatted to us.
The breakfast is a very good continental feast. I loved all the different croissants and pastries. We can not think of anything bad to say about the hotel. It is ten minutes walk from the main attractions. Ideal for the walk back after sampling the local chianti and amazing food.

Location: good, within easy walking distance of rail station and not far from main sights.
Rooms: small and dark during the day, faux period furniture and faux ceiling fresco, but comfortable and clean.
Socket in bathroom and lampshades and bulbs were however covered in dust. Not cleaner's fault, she did her job and did it well, but maintenance and management should take greater care.
Food: to be fair it was made very clear that the room service menu was mostly made up of microwaved frozen food. Pity however that a little more imagination not applied to this menu.
Breakfast quite good - delivered to room for a mere 2 euros extra.
Staff: very bad impression on arriving thanks to woman receptionist who was very offhand and brusque. This was in stark contrast to the rest of the staff, including the young male receptionist, who were smiling and courteous.
Sleep quality: room looked over the back so no traffic. Headboard was however next to the stairs and lift and corridors narrow so some noise heard.
Would I stay again? Probably not. Couldn't face that receptionist again. Pity, as I visit Florence regularly for work.

This hotel just made our visit to Florence so very convenient. We could practically walk down to most of the tourist places and did not even need a cab.Centrally located, nice rooms, clean bathrooms and great breakfast. Very convenient to reach the station and head out to Pisa.

A very nice home away from home. A kind of boutique hotel at walking distance from the Arno, Florence's city/cathedral/museums/churches/squares/markets center, minutes from the central train station. Sparkling clean bathroom--the maid works most conscientiously--and excellent breakfast for the health-conscious and the caloric-forgetful. Furnishings reminded of an elegant era, still fresh, with comfortable reading room. A real find.

Room Tip: Away from street, higher floor. Room 301 was perfect, even without the balcony.

Starting with the location within walking distance from the train station. We walked everywhere. We stayed in a room with a balcony overlooking the outdoor courtyard...very quiet. Everything was clean and the bathroom was a generous size with a tub/shower. Service was outstanding

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony

We arrived on a cold saterday afternoon to a warm old style freindly hotel.t must say that i don't like hotels. This was the first time that i truly enjoyed myself.franco was most helpful in helping us plan our stay in florence, what todo and how to get there. The room was very clean and tidy and stayed that way the whole stay. The complementry breakfast was excellent and sufficiant. We will defenetly come back to this hotel when we visit florence again.

Room Tip: Pick a room over a courtyard

We were able to walk to fantastic sights throughout the city from the location of the hotel. Florence has a lot to offer and the ambiance of this hotel made our stay in the "world of art" even better. The fellow at the reception desk was very nice and his English is good. There is a coffee shop just down the street where you can get a sandwich, a cup of coffee, and dessert at a relatively inexpensive cost.
