quiet elegance

We stayed two nights at this hotel. It was a little bit of a distance to the tourist areas compared to a lot of the hotels, but worth the little walk for the quality and the price. This hotel was beautiful. It must be new or recently remodeled. It was as nice as any 4 star American hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable (although the beds were a bit hard). The bathroom had a full bathtub, which my friend and I each excitedly used after our long day of sightseeing. It also had a hairdryer and converted outlet. There was wi-fi for a fee, but it was cutting out. You could use the internet on the computer in the lobby, but that also was for a fee, which I found odd. The breakfast was nice, and we ate on a beautiful, peaceful patio.

How very Venice

My friend and I stayed two nights at this hotel. Beware the steep steps up from the front door; hopefully your bags won't be too heavy because it appeared that all the hotels were up a flight of stairs. This room was small and a bit old, but it was just fine for our purposes. It was clean, well-maintained, and quiet. The beds were a bit hard. The bathroom had a hairdryer. The shower was small, but big enough. The hotel claimed to have free wi-fi in the lobby, but sadly it does not work with smart phones... how very strange. The breakfast was very nice, in a lovey dining room. The coffee was horrible (as it was at all our hotels in Italy). We really liked the location. It was right by the train station which is sooo important in Venice. You DO NOT want to walk all over with suitcases looking for your hotel. And the water buses and taxis are EXPENSIVE. This also meant that it was away from the massive crowds that are swarming the tourist areas. We could actually walk freely in our neighborhood. This may not be a problem the whole year, but our trip was in tourist high season August. It was also next door to the best (and cheapest) gelato shop of our whole Italy trip!

Nice hotel, but really out of the way

This was a very nice hotel, but it's very far from downtown, and not as close to the train station as it looked on the map. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Duomo, and the hotel staff said that's the best way to get there (in other words, there doesn't seem to be a bus route that's easy). We had an actual queen bed (as opposed to 2 twins pushed together, as many hotels had) and the room was very clean, if not large. The bathroom was very nice and it had a rain shower and spouts on the side, too. The breakfast was very good as well and we ate outside on a nice patio.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Florence restaurants require reservations. We tried to go at without, and even if there's no one in the restaurant they won't seat you without one. If you're going to a pizzeria, this isn't a problem, but if you want to eat at a restaurant you'll need to make a reservation. Also, the restaurants consistently shut down between 2 and 7 so make sure you eat lunch before then.

Great Hotel

The TV doesn't work well, but besides that it's a great hotel. Great location and parking is only 10.00 euro per day. Very clean and hotel staff were very nice and helpful.

Wonderful Stay

This is a very nice property situated away from the hustle and noise of the old city center and its crowds. It's an easy walk to all the sights and there is a great pastry place nearby on the walk to/from the center of town. Breakfast was good as well with a nice and varied selection of items from sliced meats, pastries, cereals, yogurts, fruit, and eggs. The staff was attentive but unobtrusive.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel concierge can make reservations for you for the most visited local museums though we found that we could get in to these locations very promptly by making our own reservations right at the sites either that day or the day before without any problems.

Great hotel at perfect location

Quiet hotel and location, at walking distance from all the famous sites in Florence. We brought our 10-month old daughter, and the hotel was the perfect starting point for our walks (with stroller) into the old city. Staff was very friendly, room was great, and breakfast was the perfect start for our long days in Florence. If we ever return to Florence (we're certainly planning to), we'll be returning to this hotel for sure.
