Excellent base for visiting the many fantastic buildings

The hotel is in a perfect location for walking to the attractions. It was clean and pleasantly staffed at all levels.The breakfast choice was a little limited and a kettle in the rooms would have been nice but all in all that is being a little picky.

Florence

We chose this hotel because of its location in the middle of town, easy walking access to most of the great sights in Florence. However the rooms are cramped and there is no staff to help you with the luggage.

Nice hotel, poor wireless internet

The hotel is very convenient and located within walking distance of the train station. It is a nice place and has a good breakfast. The room was large and nicely furnished in an older style that fit the hotel. Internet is virtually useless. you will be disconnected in less time than it takes you to reconnect. If you want to use the internet, plan on sitting in the hotel lobby! That is the only place where it really works. The staff moved us to another room for the second night so we would have "better internet" ...I still needed to sit in the lobby. If you need internet don't choose this hotel, otherwise it is a good hotel.

Great location, but no frills

We stayed in Florence for 4 days. It was a block away from the central market and a perfect location. It was also very clean.
