“Good Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

The room seemed a bit small ( we were four 2A and 2C), but very clean and comfortable. The hotel was very convenient as it was right next to the train and bus station. The breakfast was good. We had a nice view of the Duomo. Central to all the places visited.

Great location and very clean. The breakfast was nice and the location being close to the station was helpful . The only thing I didn't like was the wifi wasn't very good. I'd stay there again but I wouldn't want to count on a strong wifi connection. I'd go there for pleasure but not business.

The hotel is close to the train station so we just walked to the hotel upon arriving from. Rome. I found the room spacious and clean. The location was perfect to walk anywhere in Florence. The daily breakfast was good and the staff friendly.

We stayed there only one night coming by train from Rome. Friendly staff and very helpful. We got a room on the fourth floor which was very nice. I didnt gave a 5 because of the mosquitos in the room by night and the breakfast. We came for breakfast at 9, and the buffet was almost empty. Or else the hotel is fine :)

We arrived by train so delighted at the proximity of the hotel from the station. We had been mugged in Rome so feeling a little despondent so very happy to have received an upgrade on arrival to the hotel. We had a lovely room, very light and airy, good size bathroom. The windows were all velux so you couldn't see any view but they were electronically controlled so you could get fresh air etc. The hotel were helpful when we asked them anything. breakfast was served in the basement, a good assortment with cold meat, salad, Danish, bread, fruit. We had wifi in the hotel which is always useful
We walked everywhere from this hotel and so I would really recommend it for a walking short visit to Florence. The room was a little noisy in the morning due to the tram starting but it wasn't too bad

We had two nights here after travelling up from Rome on the Italo train. We were in room 104 which has a porch like entrance to it and it's own small patio area. The best thing about this room was the shower, a very large walk in with a power shower that the temp stayed constant in! Both my husband and myself were reluctant to leave it! The breakfast is of a very gd standard with plenty of choice. The location is great if you like to be close enough to walk to see the attractions hut far enough away that you can avoid the worst of the hustle and bustle of it all. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Ask for room 104

Stayed at this hotel for three nights. Our room was in an annex located at the rear of the hotel. We found the room fairly dark and gloomy - it may be that the rooms in the main part of the hotel were nicer.

The breakfast selection was fairly limited and they were slow at replenishing when items ran out.

Location was very close to the train station but away from the Centre of the Old Town.

Would probably choose amore central hotel if staying in Florence again.

Dear Guest,
thank you for your review!
The rooms in the back of the hotel are particularly appreciated for the silence and confort, the rooms in the main building are certainly brighter; the hotel can put at clients disposal one or the other in base of the clients request. Our breakfast is an american buffet breakfast with local ham, cheese, salami, fresh fruit salad, mixed vegetable salad, eggs, bacon, large selection of yogurt, croissant, our own production cakes, different kind of bread and juices, etc.. it would be very important to know which other product you appreciate in order to add it and improve our breakfast.
The hotel is located 10 minutes far by foots from the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery but the distance are highly subjective!
