Clean and convenient, reasonable

This hotel is well located, clean and relatively reasonable, but the rooms are small and dark, the stairway very industrial and in general the staff was not helpful. The location was the main asset.

the nicest front desk staff in Florence!

This hotel, though not luxurious, is conveniently located and has the most helpful and friendly staff in Florence. We did not spend much time in our room, but when we did, it was cool and quiet and comfy.

Maravigioso

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this tucked away hotel in Florence. We were at walking distance to all the beautiful sights this beautiful city has to offer and steps away from great eating places. The owners were a wonderful couple, very friendly and so helpful, so much so that the wife, Paola was the best tour guide. Guided Tours of Florence! We will definitely be back!
