“Great location, a real 3 star!!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We have stayed at this hotel on the first week of November, 2013. We were very pleased with the service quality. The location of the hotel is very central, we even walked to the Michelangelo Hill on foot!!! Piazza Signoria, Republica and Duomo are within walking distance. Our room was facing to the Medici Chapels and we could even see the Duomo from our room window! Room was large enough. The hotel is clean and staff is very helpful. In front of the hotel there is a local open-air bazaar for touristic goods. The only problem about this is that the rooms facing the Chapels are a little noisy during day time.

Room Tip: We stayed at the room 102

Rarely can a location be both a blessing and a hindrance, but this is one such case. A blessing because it is as central in Florence as you can get, within walking distance of the station, the Duomo, Piazza Signoria, major museums, the Ponte Vecchio, etc. However it is smack in the middle of the San Lorenzo market which is teeming with stalls hawking merchandise and blocking sidewalks and reachable only by walking 50 to 100 meters from the closest place cabs can access. That said it is adjacent to the Medici Chapel and San Lorenzo Church, and has good security with modern electronic access both to rooms and through the street level door. It has a small lift to transport you to the 3rd floor lobby and breakfast area, as well as the 2d floor rooms. The staff is young and welcoming and very helpful, rooms are clean and well furnished and breakfasts offer an abundance of pastries, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, cereals, coffees, teas and juices equal to or better than most 3 star establishments. Certainly worth a try if you can ignore the crowds and noise below as pricing is very competitive.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to experience old Florence. We stayed with our 2 daughters (10 & 13) and we all loved it. The location was close to everything (Santa Maria del Fiore) and in behind the leather market. Can be tricky to find, but if you look for the flags above the door not a problem. The room was clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The breakfasts were good. We would stay here again.

We returned for a second stay at the Corte dei Medici and were as delighted with it as we were the first time. The location is superb - five minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella (the railway station) and five minutes walk to the Duomo. The room was very comfortable and clean, and was serviced to a high standard each day. It had excellent air conditioning - a must in the high summer temperatures in Firenze.
A couple of minor points (that do not take away from the excellent rating we've given this hotel) - 1. the entrance door to the hotel is not particularly obvious from the street - we missed it on our first stay at the hotel but knew what to look for this time (the hotel is doing renovations at present and we understand this is to include a more obvious entrance area). 2. As complete tea-drinking fanatics, we were a little disappointed that the water for making tea at breakfast time was warm to reasonably hot but not really hot enough to make a good cup of tea.

Room Tip: Hotel currently being renovated, although we didn't hear any construction noise during our stay...

Decent hotel with very nice situation and very hospital staff. They will help you all the way you need also in english. Freakfast is good enough and kitchen staff try to fulfil your hopes. We have some difficulties to find the hotel because of streetshops. You can,t see the door og the hotel.

Nice staff, perfect location, lovely and functional room, fair price. Excellent choice!
We have just stayed in Florence for 2 nights and 3 days and we have been delightfully surprised by the quality offered by this simple hotel.
This was that kind of place where you do not expect to get anything special, and instead you obtain much more. One floor of the hotel is under rennovation. Despite that we have never been bothered by noises or disfunction.
The personnel was always kind and helpful, all of them. The location is strategical: 10 minutes by foot from the train station, same distance from the main sites. Perfect!
I will definately recommend this hotel and I am planning to organize a trip for my parents to Florence so they can stay there.
