    Satisfactory three star hotel in good location for seeing the central part of Florence. Just by the station so easy to get to and fro without need for taxi. Station area not the high spot of town but fine for purpose.

    This was a very nice clean hotel. It was in a good location for seeing the sights of Florence. We liked that it had a fridge ( unlike hotel in Rome). Breakfast was decent - meat, cheese, eggs (hard boiled), croissants, pastries, cappuccino - usual for Italy. We found an excellent recommendation for dinner in the hotel guide which we never would have found.

    The parking was €20/day cash - but they took your car and returned it in good time.

    Very good

    Friendly and helpful staff in a convenient location not far from the main train station but in a relatively quiet location. Breakfasts were good and the staff looked after us very well including great coffee. The night reception staff we were always courteous and helpful.

    Air-conditioning was not turned out at the main board until we asked for it. Air-conditioning did not work very well. Also, sound-proofing between rooms is not very good. Maybe it was just the room we were in. If you use the health and wellness centre nearby, you will need to take a towel with you. Wifi is only available on the ground floor. It would be good for this to be extended to the other three floors.

    The location is excellent - 3 mins SMN train Station and 5min Duomo. Delightfu; breakfast room and breakfast staff.

  • 8.2
    Great

    We were really surprised by this hotel. It is 3-star, but it wasn't worse 4-star hotel in which we used to stay. Good service. Very light rooms, even beautiful. Big TV, air condition (making warm also).

    there was only few things which can be disliked: it can be noisy a bit (the walls were not thick enough) and the water cabin is very small.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    Very good in all departments and very convenient for the railway station and even better for the autostazione for the airport bus (2 minutes walk). Staff were very pleasant and the interior was warm, clean and well-designed. We appreciated the wine and cake left in the room as it was my wife's birthday.
