              The staff gave me a very nice room with tha balcony and the view in front of the beautiful Duomo!!! Also the breakfast was very good with a lot of sweet and a part of salads. Very nice staff to reccomend me a good typic restaurant and a fantastic excursion ( wine tasting in Chianti ) ! I definitely will return!

              8.2

              Hotel staff very helpful, they made the museums reservations what saved us a lot of time on the line. Location is also very good and easy. The hotel is very close to the Central Station, what is the end point for the regular bus from airport.

              Indeed, as we've seen in other reviews, the shower box is very small.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Great stuff - very helpful and pleasant. Will help you to find a good restaurant and will offer you several best routs for sightseeing.

              First room that was offered to us smelled unpleasantly and was on the nosiest spot of the hotel. However, at the first request we were offered a better one. Milk for the breakfast was not fresh, tea caps smelled as if they were used for fish...

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              The hotel has a very good location just beside the main station of Florence (3 min walk) and just about 10 minutes walk from the main sights. The reception works 24 hours which is very convenient. Our room was very big and stylish, there was everything we needed. Next time when I'm in Florence I will not experiment with other hotels and stay here!

            • Couple
              9.2

              The hotel has a very nice style, with a big room and two big windows and a balcony. And the location close to Santa Maria Novella is very good.

              the flushing in the restroom is too noisy. And it spends too much water.

            • Couple
              5.4

              Hotel has good location nearby central railway station. Staff was friendly.

              Breakfast for Italian standard very poor: The coffee came out of a machine and was really bad. Please improve! Room heater off during the day, so you freeze when you want to stay in the room during daytime. Toilet flush was so loud that everytime one of us went to the toilet the other one fall out of bed from the noise. The furniture in the room needs to be replaced. One of the two windows in our room was broken and diffcult to open and close. Please repair!

              Unclean floor in the room, leaking wc made noise whole nights, Asking for repair without response.Be avare of very small bathroom.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              It is in a very good position. In the center, near the train and bus stations. The room was very big and comfortable. The decoration is old but it was an old building and fits to the style of the town. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. We will go back again and we'll reccomment it to friends.

              I think they have to change the bathroom as the shower isn't seperate but has a part of the bathroom and you need to clean the floor from the water otherwise it will be always dirty. The matresses need replacement because some of them are not comfortable at all. Don't be disappointed from outside, it is an old building and every floor is another hotel but the rooms are nice. Check all the signs to find the name of the hotel because there are a lot of at the same building.

              The location is so convient, it only takes 2 minutes to the Centre Train Station. the Staff are warm and helpful! I will recommend this hotel to my firends and also will stay here again if I have chance to Florence again.

              The credit card machine has a little problem when we checked out. Anyway, the staff solve the problem and it didn't bring any inconvience to us.
