The location is very good, close to all attractions. The hotel is very nice. The rooms are rather small. Especially the shower. Breakfast standard.

5 stars comfort

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
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 situation, lovely garden and good view from breakfast room

Would recommend Sun, Dec 7, 2014
The room was fantastic (junior suite), but the lack of air conditioning made it too hot in the night. Disappointed that neither the infusion bar or music bar were open, but understand that winter brings different demands. Overall it was a lovely hotel in the right place. Tea/coffee in the room would have been nice. We will return!

Highly Recommend

Would recommend Tue, Nov 18, 2014
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.

Shopping hint

San Lorenzo market is two blocks away.

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.

Nice concierge, simple room, great breakfast

Would recommend Thu, Feb 28, 2013
The room is a simple Italian style room: dark furniture, brocade bedding, clean. The hotel lobby is very modern with new computers. The concierge are nice and helpful, though dont take thier suggestion of the reataurant in san marco: very mediocre. Location is an easy walk to duomo. Breakfast buffet is the big sell: big selection of meat, mozzarella, tomatoes, pastries, juices, coffee, cereal, fruit and in nice weather you can sit and eat on their patio outside!

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.

Money saver

Short walk and convenience to every where, such as restaurants, historical sites, shopping, mini market, etc... everything within walking distant.

Hotel review

Would recommend Sat, Oct 27, 2012
The staff at the reception and at the breakfast room are very courteous and helpful. Tidiness of the room we stayed were really good. However the Room 36 we stayed in for four nights has a bathroom which needs to be refurbished - there was no shower curtain or glass screen and consequently when we have shower water splashes around the bathroom, and the bath itself is very small and has two levels. The breakfast is cold except the toasts - just scrambled eggs or warm bacon and sausages would have been enjoyable; and then the machine coffee! Otherwise the hotel and the staff are fine. MR Surrey
