good!

We stayed there for 3 nights, very quiet and nice rooms, with absolutely everything you need, clean and new. GREAT location, 2 blocks away from the "duomo", could walk everywhere! Fabulous breakfast buffet included.

Loved this hotel! Very very nice.

So close to everything you want to see in this lovely town. You can walk everywhere you want to go and I found the hotel staff very helpful and courteous. A very comfortable & polished room with great soundproofing. Lovely bedding and a great clean bathroom. Worth the extra money.

Loved it. Would stay there again!

We stayed for 4 nights while on vacation in Florence. Perfect location!! (2 blocks from the Duomo)for walking the entire city. 3 minutes walk from the train station (no cab required) Rooms were clean, modern and quiet, even though we looked over the main street. The garden terrace is spectacular - what a way to start each day! We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast / cappucino and then walked out the door into the center of everything. Staff was friendly, helpful and all spoke good English.

Great location and helpful staff!

The hotel was conveniently located so that we could walk to all the major sites in a few minutes and still be only a few blocks from the train station. The room was very nice and the hotel staff very attentive. The front desk even helped us find a self-service laundry a few blocks from the hotel.

Great location. Small but immaculate.

Great location a block from the Duomo and right near all the major sights. Immaculate new rooms were small but efficient and nice...AC worked well. Has Sat TV, but only with CNN and CNBC in English and no pay per view movies or DVD option. No WIFI in room but available in lobby for a charge. No fitness, but who needs it in Florence since you walk everywhere all day. Donot miss the terrace which has a fab view of the Duomo and Florence Hills. This was a good value for the money. Staff could have been nicer and more friendly/helpful though. Needs a concierge, because they act like they are doing you a favor to pay attention to your question or give you guidance about where to go. Bring your guidebooks and a laptop with DVDs if you are going to stay here.

Go to Villa San Michelle for drink or dinner. Its in Fiesole not far away, and has an awesome view over Florence. Also, for view and lunch, buy a paninni, take taxi to Chiesa San Miniato and see the best free view of Florence anywhere.

Tremendous location

The business center was one computer in the lobby with unreasonable rates of 5 euro for 30 minutes.
