A good hotel, but not the best. Employees are very friendly, polite and helpful. When my partner and I arrived, they gave us a small room, the window opened to a hole between the grounds. The next day 7am we were awoken with a lot of noise, which seemed to be of construction. We asked if they could change us...

Dear Brocadello, You booked a standard room and at the check-in you had the room booked. However i gave you from the second night a free upgrade in our best room with balcony and citytview including the Chapel of Santa Maria Del Fiore. So We really regret that you did not like that either. All the best, Mirko Calamini.

This hotel is close to SMN Train Station. Unexpectedly, room is not that small and has windows. Breakfast is included but a simple breakfast. Location wise, this hotel is very strategic. We just walked to many sights in Florence.

I have been in Florence only for one night. A solo trip with a random hotel choice. But it was one of the best hotels I have ever been so far.

Simple hotel, with a confort that you need to sleep and walk away during your staying in Florence. Close to the train station and the main attractions, you can do everything by foot. Good breakfast included and friendly staff.

Good morning, First I want to remember that just arrived, before you see the room, you wanted to cancel the reservation because you wanted a free garage under the hotel. Obviously after our answer that there is no free garage, you begun to threaten to write a bad review on TripAdvisor, We are so sorry to receive this comment but...

Would highly recommend this hidden gem. Great location. Right across from the train station and blocks away from food and shopping. Definitely a pensionne feels. Nothing 5 star about the hotel but the rooms and bathrooms were clean and large. Great price. The hotel exceeded our expectations. Would definitely stay there again. Free wifi was a bonus.
