“Quaint with a great location”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

This hotel is right on the river just a few blocks down from the city center. Within minutes you can cross the river and head up to the Piazzale Michelangelo, or continue along the river and head for all of the attractions of the squares and the Ponte Vecchio. The hotel itself is a lovely older home that in its new life has become a charming and character-filled hotel.

Stayed here as part of Topdeck's European Odyssey Hotel tour Sept 2013. Room was a decent size for Europe however that was the only good thing. It smelt damp and mouldy, the sheets that were (I assume) white were yellow and didnt smell clean, the door into the room was not very secure as the handle was really wobbly, the handle on the door into the bathroom fell off so we couldn't even close the door, the bathroom was tiny and mouldy and the shower head only dribbled out the slightest bit of luke warm(not hot) water. Would never stay here again.

Hotel is about 30 mins walk from the main attractions of Florence but is quite easy and pleasant as you walk along the river. Room and bathroom we stayed in was a good size. Rooms are dated but clean enough. Like one of the previous reviews I also stayed here as part of a Topdeck tour and was also woken up at 4am by a swarm of mosquitoes. Will not stay here again.

We stayed in June on a Topdeck tour!
Whilst the room wasnt terrible terrible, I was woken at 4 AM to dozens of mozzies in my room and had to go on a killing spree.
I later found the cleaner had opened the window in our room which is where they had all come from.
They should clearly know that this will happen if they open the windows and should put screens on them or leave them closed.
Needs lots of improvements, our toilet didnt flush properly either.

We stayed here for one night as part of a top deck tour. If it had of been for longer than one night, we would have moved hotels.
After being on a bus for 12 hours we were looking forward to a nice shower. Shower didn't work, tap dribbled, air con barely worked and it was really noisy.
After heading out for tea we left our keys at reception as told by our tour guide. The man on reception when we returned was rude huffed at us and slammed them on the front desk. We were woken at 5AM by a loud sound of a generator turning on. When we got up to finally have a shower guess what this time no power! I had a shower that barely worked with the torch of my I phone so I could see. Breakfast was terrible hardly any options. Had to pay for wifi. Nothing nice to say about this place defiantly the worst we have stayed at in our world wide travels. Don't waste your money!!!

If you're staying only one or two nights I recommend you use this hotel. It is a little bit small but the service is good and it is well located, walking distance from main attractions.

Breakfast was included and there was variety. It was open at 6am.

we stayed here two nights and the there was no hot water, the shower drain was blocked, the room phone did not work, towels were not refreshed even though we had placed them on the floor of the bathroom - they picked it up and hung it up for us to use again!!

Internet only available in the lobby at a cost. Very slow internet!!
