“Great location but could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

You cannot fault the location of this hotel. Less than 10 minutes for all the major sites. Only 2 minutes from the incredibly impressive Duomo. Although it's on a busy thoroughfare, the room we had was pretty quiet. The room itself was spacious, if a little tired looking. Cleanliness was a bit of an issue, but nothing too detrimental. The TV in the room is small, but with so much so close, watching TV is a bottom priority.

Breakfast was nice, with a good choice available. The staff were friendly and attentive. There is a nice courtyard and a room with internet access, sofas and books. The free wifi is a bonus, though everyone has the same account name and password. The main attraction of this hotel is location, but it may be considered slightly overpriced for what is on offer.

Came back to the hotel twice we enjoyed our stay so much. The location is perfect for exploring Florence's historic centre and allows a quick getaway if the crowds get too much. The staff were incredibly helpful and we can't wait to go again one day.

This hotel was everything that I was looking for: centrally located to all of the sights, simple and clean rooms, and great service by the staff. The price of the room was inexpensive considering the location of the hotel. The staff was very helpful in booking the busy museums/galleries: Uffizi and the Galleria dell'Accademia. The breakfast was simple, again nothing fancy. Another important thing to mention is that the wi-fi worked the entire time. In Italy, wi-fi can be spotty, even at the expensive hotels. All in all, this hotel was exactly what I was looking for in Florence. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone.

We had four nights at this hotel and it was great. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see and do. Only about 50 metres from the Duomo and walking distance to the train station. The hotel room was really roomy and had a great bathroom. The hotel staff have been great and friendly. Would definitely come and stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks out onto the courtyard.. it is nice and quiet

I got a single room and it was quite small but super clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. You are literally a block from duomo. The location here is excellent. You can walk to uffizi in 5 minutes and ponte vecchio in 10. 15 minute walk to Santa Maria Novella. There are shops, restaurants, cafes all in this area. It is basically the center of the city center.
There is a nice garden/patio at the hotel, breakfast is included (fruits, cereal, coffee, toast).
Totally inexpensive price for the end of July when there is a lot of tourism in Florence.

Room Tip: My single room was small but the doubles looked bigger/nicer. It did not bother me as I was not in m...

The hotel is in the middle of all points of interest, great deal ( price x location).
Room - Small but clean, comfortable all you need for few days since you barely stay indoors when you are in Florence
Breakfast: Ok, not lots of options and no fresh fruits. However, it is a good deal for the price offered
Location: All the best, in the eye of the hurricane ;-)
Staff: Very friendly and helpfull
Strongly recomend!

Room Tip: If you expect a spacious room and luxous hotel this is not the pick. If you want a comfortable bed i...

Location is the prize point here, just steps from the Duomo and on one of the main shopping streets. Room was very big and simply decorated, no fancy touches but totally fine. Looked onto the little internal garden so very quiet. The 2 girls on the reception were adorable, really sweet and helpful and smiled from the first instant we approached the door. Would recommend to others for a no-frills, friendly and extremely well-located choice.
