Reviewed 28 September 2013

Stayed at this hotel for an overnight stay during Eupore trip. Hotel rooms are OK but not great. Service is average . Breakfast is good and dining area is spacious. Rooms sizes are averag. Recommended for ONE night stay , but might not be good for a longer stay. No children play park area in the hotel. so children get bored. Also not space / garden around the hotel to go for a walk.

not a 4 star hotel. Very far from Florence, behide of a clinic, nothing to do there. We arrived at 8.30 evening and the restaurant was closed.The choises from the bar poor, almost nothing to eat. we went to a department store 5 min. from there and eat...Breakfast not good, only one king of cheece, ham, bread, marmalade and not well cooked omelet and bakon in small porsions...Do not go if you want to see Florence....Half an hour with the car... and finally do not open the windows,mosquitoes are every where.The only good thing is that rooms are clean.

We were two couples and we really liked the hotel and staff. The rooms had all the modern conveniences we expect and appreciate. The breakfast buffet was excellent offering both European and American choices. As mentioned by other reviewers the location was not great for seeing Florence especially since we didn't have a car but we worked around it by walking bout 5 minutes to the station then taking a train ride of about 25 minutes into town. That doesn't work if you're hauling luggage though. Good value.

We stayed at the hotel as a stop over during a long road trip and it was excellent. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, they accept dogs, and the rooms were quiet.

There is a very large shopping mall across the street with a food court.

This is NOT the hotel to stay at if you are a tourist visiting Florence. It is too far from the center unless the low price is the most important aspect. But, if you are on a long drive it is excellent.

Exterior/Hotel location & view:
The hotel is located very far from Florence. Even with moderate driving it takes 30 minutes to reach the city center. The area is industrial with high voltage power lines next to the hotel. Rooms are facing toward the power lines and a small river that has mosquitoes during spring time.

Public Areas/Reception Staff/Check-in:
Staff seemed very "stiff" trying to be professional but was not made you feel welcome nor friendly. The only friendly person we encountered was a woman at the reception. The hotels give the perception of a pseudo-expensive 4-star hotel. Leather couches and bronze/gold decoration. Slow speed free Wi-fi works inside the public areas with an annoying password you have to take a ticked each time from the reception.

Breakfast:
The breakfast experience was horrible. Cold croissants, sweet taste of omelet, burned-coil-like-bacon and generally the lack of variety. Also one day we had to eat the leftovers of other clients, nothing on the buffet (not even bread) and when I asked why the buffet is empty the explanation I received from the staff was just a plain "Sorry" not even an explanation. They did not even provide us an excuse. Other customers were complaining but nothing was done. Persons in charge were absolutely absent. The next day the buffet was normal by some kind of miracle

Room/Facilities:
The rooms were spacious with same style 50s-60s decoration and with big opening windows. Unfortunately our room had a very bad smell and odor of cigarette. The rooms have old carpets on the floor with ugly stains and spills on them (even coffee stains). Obviously the carpet absorbs all the smells & odors. Not healthy at all. Stains are also on the wall and on the old tapestry. We tried to sleep and we could not sleep from the strength of the cigarette odor. The next day we complained at the reception and the only option they offered is a change of room, the receptionist did not feel to really care if we slept or not. We were given the excuse that the rooms are non-smoking but some customers smoke. Rooms had an old tube-TV and refrigerator.

Cleanliness:
Cleaning service was provided every day.

Conclusion/Check-out:
I cannot suggest this hotel for anyone staying to Florence. The gas price and the bad quality of services do not justify the price difference that you will find with other Hotels closer to Florence. I would never come back to this Hotel. I have stayed on Starhotels before (in Milan) and the experience was far better there.

Pros:
+Price compared with other hotels in Florence
+Free Parking
+Spacious Rooms
+Comfortable beds

Cons:
-Stiff Staff
-Mediocre Breakfast
-Old carpets inside the rooms
-Expensive for the services provided
-Location is very far from Florence (30mins driving)
-Located in industrial line next to high voltage power lines

The hotel is located in a rural/residential area about 35 minutes north of Florence. The rooms are spacious but the rungs were worn and soiled. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. We had a smoker nearby (even though the floor was designated as Non-Smoking) and the hallways reeked of smoke. When I approached the front desk they said that they can't control what people do in their rooms and offered no solution. We were with a group and our meal included the following: 1) small (shallow) bowl of minestrone soup (looked similar to Progresso canned soup); 2) Two thinly sliced pieces of pork loin (about 2 inches in diameter) with boiled vegetable (which were mushy and looked like they too came out of a can); 3) Two scoops of ice cream that had freezer burn. The wine was over-priced compared to other parts of Italy. Needless to say our meal was so bad that we had to walk over to a nearby mall and ate at the food court. Pretty sad that we were near one of the most beautiful cities in the world and a country known for its cuisine and we had to eat at a mall. My advice is to stay closer to Florence (even if it costs more).

The location is not good in midst of industrial area far from city centre, the taxi will cost about 40 Euro to the city centre. The rooms are large, clean and have all modern amenities including tea/coffee maker. The breakfast was quiet okay if not the best. The bathroom was also of good size and well kept. The airconditioning was just about ok. The reception was quiet helpful. The wifi in lobby is free for 30 minutes. The train station is about five - seven minutes walk from station.
