Rude and arrogant receptionist- stay away

The hotel receptionist was rude and was mumbling to himself angrily when we asked questions about the internet. He was downright insulting and unprofessional. Even though this location is convenient, I regretted staying at this pathetic hotel. The rooms were dark and dreary with deep green bed coverings and a mustard painted room. Terrible tasteless decor! The bathrooms were crampy and planned terribly- the water splashed out from the shower leaving a muddle everytime on the bathroom floor. Since the reception was so rude I asked the hotel bell boy/supervisor?! for help. They changed the shower curtain which helped a little.

Unimpressive rooms - good location!

The hotel has a very pleasant (almost swank) lobby but pls note that the rooms are EXTREMELY utilitarian (no windows/outside light/ no décor on walls, no tissues in bath). I could not recommend this hotel if you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room. That being said, we slept well, breakfast was plentiful and served elegantly. Front desk was helpful and you are extremely close to the market for leather goods and the produce market. Hotel is one or two blocks from train station.....very close to all major sites.

Holiday to Florence

Staff were welcoming on arrival at reception. I was disappointed by the room though as extra little touches would have made it so much better. There was only 1 small wardrobe for 3 people so my husband and son lived out of the suitcase. The beds squeaked very loudly every time you turned in the night so sleep was limited. There was only 1 pillow per person. I had to wrap my over blanket up as a 2nd pillow and left it there hoping the cleaner would take the hint but it was not to be. Everything seemed an effort for the reception staff. They need to smile more and greet there customers each day as they come and go. The barman however was amazing! Very friendly, bubbly, gave advise and tips on where to go. Nothing was too much for him. For us, he is the sole reason why the hotel is still in business. Waiters were very friendly too. Breakfast lovely. Did I mention the paper thin walls? Another reason for not sleeping. We could here parents in the next room shouting at their kids, people running up and down the steps, going in and out of their rooms at all hours. The list goes on. The location was fab though, right into the market, very close to food hall and a further walk around the corner to the duomo. Train and bus station just around the corner too.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Your bill can soon escalate when eating out due to a few things. 1: service charge, roughly €1.50/person. 2: water, they bring your drinks and then ask if you want water. It is the bottled stuff, ask for tap water, €3-4. 3:bread: they don't always ask, they just sneak it on. €2. Depending how many there are of you your bill can soon be another €10 each time which everyday soon mounts up. Shop around for ice cream, price varies a lot. Tubs are generally cheaper than cones. Don't forget the city charge, €3/person/night. Another €66 at the end of the holiday and it has to be paid in cash. We took €1200 for the week for 3 of us. People said we would have more than enough but we didn't, we had to be careful each day about what we spent. Majority goes on food and drink.

Great location

I would recommend this hotel to others looking for a hotel in florence. The location was very close to the train station and we are able to walk to everything that we wanted to see in Florence from our hotel. Staff was very helpful when needed. The breakfast was very good. Rooms were small but very clean.

Great bed and breakfast

It was convenient, staff were wonderful. The room with access to the outdoor terrace provided the extra space which made our space most comfortable. Once we learned the bus and subway system we could travel throughout Rome. Free wifi and access to a pc was an extra plus. I would definitely recommend.

Family getaway

The hotel was centrally located and staff were very accommodating. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices and plenty of seating. The room was comfortable but the bathroom could use some renovating. Overall it was a very good experience considering the craziness of the area and the number if people they try to accommodate.

Very good value

Centrally located hotel, spacious room for 4 people. Very clean. Nice staff. Decent breakfast. Once drawback is that over weekend it was noisy at night due to proximity to bars, restaurants, etc.

Very friendly staff.

We had a very nice stay @ this hotel. We stayed with our 14 yr old daughter in a 'triple'. The room was very clean. The breakfast was great with a big variety of options, including fresh fruit, yogurt, cold cuts, hard boiled eggs, rolls, croissants, 3 - 4 different pastries, rolls, and breads. The location is ideal; within walking distance to The Academia, The Uffizi, the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, the open market, the leather market, etc. much shopping and many many restaurants. We walked everywhere all week, never took a cab. My parents will be visiting the same area in the Spring and will be staying at the same hotel.

Best place for the price

The location is great--right next to Marketo Centrale and the Duomo and the San Lorenzo church. The hotel has a really helpful and nice staff. The breakfast is included in the price and it is wonderful. Different types of pastries, meats, eggs, cereals, etc. The rooms have their own thermostat so the AC is great. They don't include internet, and it's quite expensive, so that was a downside. But there are several cafes that have free wifi nearby.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The market is literally just outside the hotel doors and it is a great place to get souvenirs, but most of all, it is the best place to get leather goods...like jackets and bags. Be sure to haggle on the price and you can always get a good deal.

Good hotel for a quick stay in Florence

Hotel was in a great location near the train station and since Florence is so compact, we were able to walk everywhere from the hotel. No complaints about the room itself, or the hotel staff. Only complaint would be no free Wi-Fi.
