The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Firenze Santa Maria Novella Station, which is very handy if you arrive by train. The hotel is on one of the central streets but it is surprisingly quiet inside. Miriam, Robert, and their staff are all very helpful and make you feel at home.
There's free WiFi internet available. It wasn't in the room but very good in reception or breakfast area.
I had to print some train tickets and Miriam did this for me.
Breakfast is very basic, consisting of freshly brewed espresso or cappuccino, tea, cereal, biscuits, hard-boiled eggs, juice, pastries. There's also a fridge with water, soft drinks and beer for you to buy at any time of the day. Coffee and tea are also available to purchase from the reception. There's no kettle or cups, etc in the room, but there's a small bar fridge.
We stayed in room 25, The room is of a good size. which was a triple room, with a king bed and a single bed. We had a free upgrade. Air conditioner was great and relieved the heat quite fast. The bathroom was also large, with a shower and bidet. Shampoo and shower gel are provided. Towels are good and will be changed on request. The bathroom vent is not powerful enough.
There's no iron and ironing board for use and hotel staff suggest to use laundry nearby.
They will happily lend you cutlery and crockery if needed. We arrived late at night and they ordered some pizza for us as we were too tired to go out for dinner.
There're lots of places to eat nearby.
The hotel is about 3 minutes from Galleria Academia, Duomo and about 10 minutes from Uffizi.
The city is safe.
Will definitely stay here again.
PS. Miriam loves chocolates! :o)
