We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was well maintained. And the breakfast buffet is excellent for the price you pay. The hotel staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. All in all a very happy customer. Infact I'm looking to visit Florence again soon so will definitely be booking a room here.

Very clean and comfortable room. Great variety of foods available for breakfasts. Staff were wonderful and went to a lot of trouble for us. They even prepared some breakfast for us to take before the 7am breakfast start time.

A very nice hotel over all - nice room with en suite bathroom (pity the shower was a bit iffy even after it was looked at but it was usable). Breakfasts were brilliant and staff lovely - all but one.

A massive thank you to Guiseppe for being so helpful, kind and efficient. From parking our car for us in the rather difficult to navigate car park to calling the rental car place and sorting out an issue with a dent in the car we hired (a horrible mishap of our doing!); he gave excellent advice about the sites to...

I had a rough idea of what to expect based on reviews, but really loved this nice, lovely hotel. Wasn't too far away from the old city center, which I would frequent or the train station (about 10-15 minutes' walk away). Wasn't too surprised about the city tax because all Italian hotels I stayed in had those.

When entering the hotle, we were impressed with the elegance from the main lobby and with the politeness from the lady at the reception desk. We stayed in room 106 with a king sized bed. The sheets were clean, the walls were dirty and the air didnțt smell to fresh. Anyway, the bathroom was big and clean and we found...
