We had high hopes of this little hotel, however, they were soon dashed. It is a three star hotel but this feels a generous rating to us. We booked two rooms for our family of four. The attitude of the Reception staff was mixed, ranging from extremely helpful to positively ill-tempered. There was no welcome pack in the two rooms....

The location is great, close to train station, and a great restaurant- All 'Antico Mercato (highly recommended) the market and main attractions. I feel the hotel could use some upgrading. The bed was very uncomfortable, it looked like 2 cots put together, and the shower was the smallest 1 person 'portable' looking shower stall. The front desk staff was very...

Hard to find a room to accommodate 4 people in Florence. Two double beds. Corner room was clean with a modern bathroom. Staff was helpful to arrange early morning taxi to airport. Parking garage they have a deal with down the street was too full and not open 24 hours a day, so we had to park at the Santa...

We had a very pleasant stay all travel amenities 5 mins walk away. All major sites nearby. Room 307 smallish, but perfectly adequate. Exceptionally clean, linen changed every two days, bathroom always kept sparkling. Breakfast provided a great start to a heavy days sightseeing. Staff efficient, polite and respectful. Would definitely stay again.

They have very few single- bed rooms and they will not provide a double. First room 224 was dismal,and looking directly into next door. I was staying 6 nights and was very disappointed and complained. Had to stay first night in 224 then I was moved to second room 501 which has a great view with massive terrace but right...

Ideally located for main station and centre. Great breakfast. Bedroom small with large bedroom. Room cleaned every day and bed linen changed every other day. Had requested room on a high floor with a balcony prior to visit however reception had no record of request and female receptionist unhelpful and unaccommodating.

On our sweaty arrival, walking uphill from the bus station to locate the hotel which was fairly easy to find, not being offered even a glass of water in that heat was something that didn't sit well with me. We appreciated the professionalism of the staff but they are lacking that personal touch. The hotel is a bit old and...

This small hotel is in a great location, close to the train station and not far from the Uffizi and Duomo. It is also close to many restaurants. We had a very comfortable bed and the Continental breakfasts were good. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

I loved the hotel simply because its closest to transportation. Just a few min walk and you're at Firenze S.M.N station. It's at a perfect location if your trip involves moving around, it's a perfect base. The room was okay, nothing to write home about but the door needs fixing. Nothing really that bad about the hotel so I would...
