Modern & clean

Overall, a nice modern & clean place to stay. 10-12 minutes walk to the center. However, for the price they charge you can find other boutique nice places cheaper than this one.

Not so hidden a secret

We got a room with its own balcony, in fact the only one in the hotel, so this review will be a bit more favorable than normal, perhaps. The hotel is less than ten minutes walk from the Duomo, although the bus station/taxi station along the way is busy and hazardous. There were a number of American tour groups there. The lounge is large and modern, the restaurant is - of course - expensive. It also has a parking garage which is exceedingly rare in Italy. If you want to go away from the tourist area, simply turn right when you exit the hotel and walk a few blocks.

Good choice in less-busy area of Firenze

This was a very nice, boutique-type hotel, located about 12-15 min easy walk from the Duomo area of Firenze/Florence - so its close enough to walk just about everywhere without being in the middle of the crowds. Helpful staff, good free breakfast, free WiFi.

If looking to do day trips, combine Pisa and Siena. Unless you really like to look in every church in a town, these are both really half day visits at best.

Nice place very good Euro breakfast

Rooms are small but very modern and functional beds are also nice. Breakfast very nice great coffee and diverse offering not American eggs and bacon but a great start to the day. A full fast 5-7 minute walk to Duomo and key activities. Arno is 15 minute walk. No complaints because long walks are a key part of seeing this city.

excellent service from all staff

excellent service from all staff - at reception, during breakfast etc. - one of the most helpful hotel staffs that I have ever come across; good location, just about 5 mins walk past the Academia; lovely modern, clean, spacious rooms; bit noisy street side with all the mopeds going by so maybe request a back room? would definitely recommend this hotel to friends

Aamiainen hieman floppaa

Pääsääntöisesti hotelli on aivan OK keskitason hotelli. Aamiainen on lähinnä matkustajakotitasoa.

Gutes Hotel für Städtereise

Das Hotel ist geeignet für eine Städtereise in Florenz. ca. 10 Min. zu Fuss ins Zentrum. Gratis W-LAN. Schade, dass man um 22 Uhr an der Hotelbar nichts mehr zu trinken kriegt.
