Reviewed 17 April 2014

The hotel is in a great Location in the city. Steps from The Galleria Acadamia, and the Duomo. Rooms are contemporary in style. The hotel offers a great bar for a night cap after a long day , as well as a fantastic restaurant onpropert. Make sure to me Gaetano our Favorite barkeep. He's a great resource for information as to eat where the locals do, as well as guiding you to see the sights many miss. Thisd is our "Official" home in Florence. I wouldnt even consider another property

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is clean and functional and service is very friendly. The rooms are perhaps a little tired looking and fairly small. But it does the job! Breakfast is adequate. The courtyard is a pleasant place to chill out in. However contrary to other reviews, I wouldn't say it is particularly central- a good 10 minutes walk to the Duomo. But all in all a fine stay. One other thing, take your mosquito repellent- got eaten alive on our first night!

Room Tip: Rooms away from street are quieter

This is a fine hotel located two blocks from the Duomo town center. Everything is well within walking distances. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The shower was a little tight for a broad shouldered man but otherwise, quite efficient. Not being a fan of continental breakfasts, we were disappointed with the breakfast but the servicing staff made up for it-- they were wonderful. The registration/hotel staff were friendly and most helpful. They recommended several restaurants and places to visit including a walk to a fantastic view across the river. In fact, our best meal in a 10 day trip to Italy was in Florence at the staffs recommendation. They even called and made a reservation for us. All in all I would give them a 9 out of 10 stars. We will most definitely stay here again.

The hotel was clean and easy to get too. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Our room itself was great but was very noisy. We could hear buses/cars/people talking late at night and early in the morning.

We did enjoy our stay and the location was great, easy to get too from the train station.

Hotel is walking distance to all major attractions. Very close to the train station. Pleasant check-in, attendants were very nice and informative. Good and large variety of breakfast selections. Room small, little out-dated, but everything in the room was extremely clean. Two days is enough to see the city.

After a not-so-good experience at another place in Florence, we happened upon this wonderful oasis of welcome, efficiency, and comfort. We somehow ended up in a suite, which was cheaper than the tiny dump we had just escaped from. A large lounge and dining area and a large bedroom (both with floor to ceiling windows), a balcony, and two large bathrooms. Amazingly huge for Europe. Breakfast was good too.
