Great surprise

We had only paid AU$100 per night for this hotel and didn't have very high expectations. However the staff were welcoming and very helpful (e.g. they called an unrelated tour agency on our behalf to check if a tour we had booked was still running given bad weather), the room was very big for European hotels, bathroom large with an open shower (much better than a tiny, pokey shower as is the Italian norm), breakfast was included and plentiful, and the hotel was well located (about 5 minutes walk to the train station, 10 minutes walk to the Duomo). I didn't get the internet to work, but I only tried once in my room and I saw others using it at breakfast. Great hotel option, excellent for the price. We would return.

excellent stay in firenze

This hotel is fantastic in terms of location, service, and cleanliness. Staff are nice and helpful in any aspect. The room we stayed was clean and comfortable. Value for money and cannot have any better choice in firenze. The only thing is that the lift is small and slow. XDD

Good Location

Located close to the train station and the major attractions (Duomo & Michelangelo's David). Very basic room but fine for a short stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and nice buffet breakfast is included.

I was very pleased in every aspect

I was very pleased in every aspect regarding this hotel and it's in a fantastic location, close to everything. If I was to be picky, the only thing that could do with improvement, would be the beds, the mattress was very hard and I actually like a firm mattress, but I found the mattress and the pillows too hard. However, I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends and I would stay there again.
