“Lovely hotel -15 min walk from city centre”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Lovely hotel, stayed 2 nights with our 6&4 yr old children, luckily we did not use a buggy as there was no lift at the hotel! Rooms basic but clean and served our needs, staff friendly and provided help with local transport. Breakfast very basic and could have done with some fruit rather than cake! Some street noise but as we were in the top floor - with windows closed it was minimal.. Overall deserves 3 stars

We stayed here with another couple and really enjoyed the hotel. The location is great and the desk staff are very polite and helpful. There is a laundry around the block and several cafes within an easy walk from the room. The rooms are nicely sized although the bathrooms are really small and appeared to have been an addition to the room that we were in. The fridge in the room had a lock on it, and we weren't sure if it was a refrigerator or a safe, and not seeing another safe in the room we used it as both.
As an aside, this was a 20th anniversary trip and on each hotel reservation I made I noted that fact in the comments section. Hotel Ferrucci was the only hotel that noticed, and had a small bottle of wine for us in our room when we arrived. Nice touch! We would stay here again and would wholeheartedly recommend it to friends.

Room was clean and the reception staff was very attentive and polite. Very noisy in the room as we were right off the street on the first floor. The doors were very hard to open and close so we heard other guests trying to get in and out of their rooms all night. The hotel is about 30-35 minutes by foot to the main sites and shopping areas. The reception desk recommended a great restaurant in the neighborhood which we went to twice during our 3 night stay. We probably would not stay here again as I think it would be best to rent a villa on the outskirts of Florence and drive in for a day or 2 to see the sites.

Nice hotel in a very quite lane of Ricorbolli area. Away from the main attractions however takes only 15 min by bus to reach the centre of all the tourist spots. 15-20 min by bus from SM Novella station. Bus no 23 A/B or Bus D from the station. Walk able from Piazzale Michaelangelo & the bridge / river.
Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was fine.
Small problem with the room though. We were put up in Room No 1 - which was next to the street & there was too much noise from the traffic. I think there is no sound proofing done for the rooms.

Room Tip: Be sure you dont get Room no 1

Easy to find, just the other side of the river, 15-20 minute walk along the river each way. We stayed in room 1, which was directly behind the reception and overlooking the road, so a little noisy initially but acceptable once we had closed all windows. Good sized and freshly decorated room and ensuite shower room but don't get too excited about the painted ceilings! Reception staff very helpful. Free wi-fi. City Tax payable in cash on checking out. We didn't try the breakfast in the hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if we return to Florence. No safe in the room

The rooms are not like in the pictures...in pictures are big and with specific decor. We book for this hotel for a room with frescoes on the ceiling and the room we received have not and was very small.
We stayed there 3 nights and in the early morning (5-6 h) was very noisy, the doors of the rooms are old and they do not close well so everybody slam the doors to close them. Im not a morning person and i dont apreciate the forced wake-up.
The position is the only thing good about this hotel, because is at a walk distance to pedestrian area.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for three nights in September. The room was a good size, immaculately clean and the bathroom was very modern.

All the staff we encountered at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is only 5 EUR per person which is great value for the spread that is available (bread, cakes, pastries, yoghurt, cereal, eggs, fresh coffee, tea, juice).

It was a 20 minute to the centre of Florence but the bus was very easy to catch if you do not like a walk.

Overall this is excellent value for money and I would highly recommend it.
