Convenient to the train station (although not a posh area), this small boutique hotel had great service, clean rooms and a nice breakfast buffet for the price. A few blocks away from the fabulous Mercato Centrale (food market) and all of the major attractions of Florence are within walking distance.

On our initial arrival, we had a problem trying to locate the hotel entrance. When we finally found it, we weren't very happy with how the hotel and hotel reception looked for a 3-star hotel. The environment looks dated. There was only 1 small lift taking visitors from the ground floor (where the reception resides) to the first floor. And as we were given a room on the second floor, we had to climb up another flight of winding stairs to get to our room. Fortunately, they had a special staff-only lift that goes to both floors and the hotel staff assisted in delivering our luggage to our room.

On to the room itself, it was rather small in size, just enough to put our luggage at one corner. The furnishings were acceptable and clean though. We had a problem with the TV initially, but the hotel receptionist went out-of-the-way to help us with the issue (probably because the hotel was short of staff and she was the only other person around besides the room cleaning lady). And fortunately for us, she managed to get the TV to work.

On a positive note, this hotel was at an excellent location, and was around 3 minutes walk from the main train station. There were also numerous eateries nearby the hotel which provided good food at very affordable prices.

Dear Skquek
thank you for your review.
As you can read in all the web description about our hotel, it is situated in a XIX cent building, so you can not find a modern entrance in a so ancient building.
the rooms where you were accomodate have been completely renewed in 2007 as well as our reception and our inside lift, so it can be really not considerate dated, and the space in the room is respecting the italian regulamentation about hotel rooms dimensions.
As you wrote in your message, our staff is very helpfull bringing luggage to sencond floor, and if guests don't want to walk trough the stairs just for one floor, they can use the outside lift from the ground to the rooms floors.
Our inside lift is large enogh for 5 persons or for 2 with 4 luggage, so it has a correct dimension for an hotel with just 27 rooms.
We thank you for noting that our staff is always very promt and helpull with our guests.
Our position, as you write, is great to visit all the most important sightseeing.
vflmdtmdnc, best regards

This hotel is in an excellent location as it is less than a 5 minute walk from the main train station and easy walking access to the main city sites and when catching the bus tours. It is also handy to some great delis and restaurants. The staff are very welcoming, the breakfast nice and served with a smile. Only downer would be if you couldn't climb stairs as the lift only goes to the first floor. Would certainly book to stay there again.

Dear Mr Samdog
thank you for your nice review.
Our inside lift goes only till the fist floor, but we can help our guest with an outside lift to bring the luggage till the sencond floor too, or guests can also use it if don't want to use the stairs.
We are happy to read that you had good time in Florence and in our hotel, hope to see you again.

We stayed here towards the end of June 2013 and would absolutely stay there again.

There is just a five minute walk to the station and probably no more than 15 minutes to the square where the majority of landmarks are. The staff also made this trip great because they were so helpful and explained where best to eat etc.

Room was great, clean and couldn't fault it. We were out exploring most of the time, so I would recommend this.

We stayed at this hotel from 10/6 to 12/6. We were satisfied when we stayed at here. Unfortunately, it was a nightmare after our check-out. I used my credit card for the reservation before we arrived the hotel. We asked the staff if we could use another credit card's for the payment when we checked-out. They said yes and my husband's card was finally used.

However, when we checked with our bank after went back to our country, I was told that my card (supposed to be used for reservation, but NOT for payment) was charged!! And they also hold the authorization of my husband's card!! The most weird thing is that my card was charged on 13/6 which was the day after we checked-out!?

I was very disappointed about their poor arrangement and the communication among the staff. I think this kind of issue was unacceptable as it makes me very confused. The most importantly, the issue has not been settled even today is already 27/6!! Which is two weeks after our check-out!!!

If you will stay at this hotel, remember not to give them two credit cards for reservation and payment because all of your credit cards may also be charged!!

Dear Sirs
thank you very much for your review. We are very happy to read that you had a nice time in our hotel during your stay.
We are sorry to read about the inconveniences you had with the preauthorization. We did not get any information by your side before reading this review, so we could not help you faster.
When we receive a new reservation we always ask for a preauthorization before the guest arrival, and seen that you used a different credit card at the check out time, you got 1 charge on the second card given, and 1 preauthorization on the card communicated at the reservation time. If we kwen that the preauthorization unblock (that should be done quite soon after check our time by the credit card company) was been so slow, we could call the credit card operator to ask to do it immediately. Thank you for your comprehension,
best regards

We were very happy with our stay. The hotel is minutes away from Florence Santa Maria Novella rail station by foot and an easy walk to Duomo, Acadameia, and Uffizi...it's a great location. While building was older, Room #240 was very nice, clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished/decorated, and was quite quiet notwithstanding overlooking a very busy street. Rates are very reasonable. There are a lot of Laundromats in immediate vicinity (few hundred feet) and would definitely recommend setting aside some time to use them rather than have hotel send out laundry which was quite expensive (but badly needed). Would have appreciated some written instructions on how to operate a/c but ultimately figured out and it did a great job of cooling room. Nice eating area with good breakfasts with lots of choices. All personnel were unfailing cordial, personable, and friendly but we did have to ask three different people on separate occasions before inoperative exhaust fan in bath was replaced. Definitely would recommend!!!
