Hotel is nice and in a good location. We booked a room with garden view - very lovely. Our room is big, clean and up dated. Front desk employees are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is good. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to our friends and family members. We would go back and stay in this hotel again.

A hidden treasure in Firenze

The best boutique hotel in the city. Very competent and friendly staff at the Front Desk. The best breakfast in town. My room was clean and extremely comfortable. Very relaxing environment with a beautiful interior garden. Eat italian food, shop italian made clothes and shoes, walk the city up and down, visiting art museums, and enjoy the italian tempo of life. My best time ever in Firenze.

A very good restaurant across the street. A terrific trattoria three blocks down from the hotel, a bar in the corner. Ten minutes from everything important in town.

Highly Recommend

My initial room looked onto an interior fire escape, and I asked to make a room change. This was immediately granted. The new room was very clean, spacious and had a lovely view to a courtyard. Amenities like shampoo, etc., could be expanded. Breakfast was good, with much variety. On a Sunday morning, all guests must have all gone to breakfast at 9, so the room was not large enough to accommodate all, and items were depleted. A back up room for such weekend occasions should be considered. A two block walk to the San Lorenzo market was a plus.

5 stars comfort

This hotel was one of the most beautiful we visited in italy. When we got there they upgraded us to the top floor in a room with balcony with a view to the backyard. It was pretty, clean, big compared to other hotel standards around. The marble bathroom was beautiful as well. The breakfast was very enjoyable in a room with big windows with a view on the garden. They also had great food! Doors of the hotel close at night for security, but there is always someone to open for you. Overall, we really loved this hotel and the 5 stars comfort.

Great Stay!

My wife and I were in Florence in mid-February. We had a very nice room overlooking the courtyard. The hotel is very close to the major attractions and the breakfast was quite good, especially the freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff was very helpful.

Would even go back!

Very good hotel with efficient and friendly staff. Arrived late at night and was conscious that there were not many "guide line" instructions in the room. No tea or coffee facilities but a good selection of drinks (alcoholic and non) in the mini bar. Breakfast OK with all one expects, but no extra touches. Was very satisfied with everything on offer. Good easy walkgood places to eat in easy walking distance.

Overall a very nice hotel in a great location. Breakfast was great and breakfast staff were very nice. Desk clerk was professional but not friendly. Overall a good value for the money, given we had a 20% discount.
