Excellent hotel

It's a charming hotel with a old world feel, very near train station. The best thing about the hotel is the staff service, excellent! Rooms are big and spacious for Florence's standard. It's a 3star hotel with a 5 star service!

Average stay, perfect location

The location was great and the staff where helpful most of the time. The shower wasn't that good, it wasn't hot all the time, and the wifi needed some maintaince, only really worked downstairs, and the only channel that was English was CNN, so 3 days with just cnn when we didn't wanna do anything was kinda annoying. Other than that it was fine. The price was okay, but the breakfast needs some work. Overall for a hotel in Florence near everything's it was really good for basic stuff

Perfect for us!

Everything was good. Room was big, staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite comprehensive and with plenty of food. Only note was a pretty bad smell we had in our bedroom, not sure where was coming from, but was quite intense.

Great stay near the train station

A very convenient stay near transport, markets, eating places and with all main attractions within reasonable walking distance. Staff were helpful but not necessarily very friendly. The room was very spacious with a window overlooking all the action-lots of fun and very interesting. The passage and lift could have been cleaner. Finding the room was along a long winding passage with two sets of steps. Breakfast was good-nice selection of food and the breakfast room staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Convenient location

This hotel is close to the train station and in a good location for exploring Florence. Room size was average and not a lot of room for our luggage. Overall the hotel is fine but nothing special.

Nice and clean hotel which is

Nice and clean hotel which is 5 minutes walking distance to the central train station, and 10 minutes walk to the Domus & Shopping area. Very centralized locatIon. There is a lift; so no need to drag your bags up the stairs to the high floors. Rooms have sufficient amenities like refrigerator & safe. Reception provides good enough service; such as calling a cab that arrives within 5 minutes. However the price is a little on the high side for single bedroom.

Book this hotel for it's excellent

Book this hotel for it's excellent location. The train station is just 250m to 300m away. The facilities are adequate and functional, after all you are there just to sleep before moving on to the next day's programme. But the reception staff's attitude is horrendous. When we reached the train station from Pisa, it was pouring. I walked to the hotel to borrow umbrellas so that the others in my party need not walk in the pouring rain with their luggages. Their reply - We don't lend umbrellas to our clients. We are not asking for the sky for crying out loud!

Very pleasant hotel in a fantastic location, just minutes from the train station, San Lorenzo and the other main sights in Florence. Staff very friendly and helpful and buffet breakfast of high quality. Ideal for a short break to this magnificent city.

Buffet breakfast the same all

Buffet breakfast the same all throughout. Wifi available only through costly purchase of card; still it didn't work! Only a few TV channels available and only CNN as the sole English channel. Funny smell in the bathrooms (I requested a bigger room since I was given a small one at the back). Fortunately, the new room had a terrace with a magnificent view of the Duomo and another church, which made up for the rest. On the whole, fantastic location--near the train station, the central market and historical landmarks!
