Nice and getting nicer....

Very nice hotel in very good location. Renovations still in progress and it should be even nicer when complete. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooftop bar was a great surprise.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

The hotel is in an area of many one-way streets and a great deal of tourists. If you drive, call ahead on best way to get to the hotel. (GPS could not find it)

I was completely satisfied

The staff was friendly and helped me with any questions or concerns that I have had. The bathroom was very clean and modern with a whirlpool bathtub. They provide basic toiletries and renew them every day. Their bar is not over priced like most other hotel bars. The only negative part was that instead of a double bed, I had two single beds pushed together. With every single movement they came apart creating a huge gap in the middle of the bed. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and being very close to the center of the city.

good location, good price and clean room

The hotel was under construction, but nothing bothered us. It was neat and clean for the price. Especially bath room was new. And it was in the best location to go around the city!

Great overnight stop

My son and his girlfriend had a lovely evening in Firenze and enjoyed their stay at the hotel. It was very convenient for sight seeing and suited their budget. Clean and comfortable, no frills, exactly as they expected after reading the description. Very happy experience!

perfect location, great value!

Amazing location in beautiful Florence! Great value. Nice bathroom (spacious by European standards) with great water pressure in shower. Comfy bed, quiet place, strong air conditioning. Very restful. Breakfast was mediocre at best but the room was very nice and staff helpful and friendly. Would recommend!

A quaint hotel in the heart of Florence

The hotel is nice, clean and in the center of Florence. The only downside is that there is a little construction in the building next store so you have to go through a different entrance with no elevator to the lobby.

not a four-star hotel

The room was fine, with a great shower, poor towels, and no English TV. But it was right next to one of their dining areas, so when people sat at 7:30, our sleeping was over. On top of that, they "store" your luggage right by the side of the entry--not very safe. This was a very good two-star hotel, but no better than that.

Very good location ... But not much more

Room was not dirty but the appearance was less than desirable. Walls were scuffed and visibly stained. Shower head kept falling and spraying water all over the bathroom. Bed linens were clean, but comforter/dust cover was ancient. Parking was conveniently located next to the hotel but slightly pricey. The best thing about this hotel was the location. Very short walk to the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi, and Ponte Vecchio. Simply not a 4 star hotel.
