Great location

Would recommend Sat, Nov 29, 2014
I enjoyed this hotel. I visited Florence for a weekend with my son. The staff was friendly and accommodating. When the room setup perfect upon check in, they immediately fixed it and could not have been nicer (e.g., remade beds as 2 twins not 1 double, checked on bathroom faucet, tried to improve internet). They graciously provided a large umbrella to use for the raining day. Hotel layout is a bit quirky, which meant a few different ways to our room, but I found this charming. Our room was quiet. The only drawback was weak internet in our room (internet was fine in hallway and common areas).

I'd stay here again

Would recommend Tue, Oct 1, 2013
The hotel is gorgeous and elegant. The staff is gracious, cheerful and helpful. The location is excellent, 5 minute walk to the Duomo and sits on the Piazza Santa Maria Novella which is lovely. Rooms aren't as big as American's might expect, but they aren't tiny either. I would be happy to stay here again.

Dining

The absolute best Gelato in Florence is at Perche No! Not far from Duomo. All freshly house made and organic.

A good central location hotel,

Would recommend Sat, Jul 13, 2013
This hotel is central and offers very good accommodation with lovely antique style interior. The holiday was enhanced by this hotel and we would visit it again..The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only comment I would make is, to eat in a restaurant, I would suggest, go over the bridge and out of town and not eat in the city center.

Dining

Find a restaurant over one of the bridges away from city center.

staffs are friendly, location is great, except the sign of the hotel is too small that we had hard time of finding it while it was raining at that night.

a true gem

Would recommend Mon, Mar 11, 2013
Beautiful little historic hotel. Loved the fabric (silk?) wallpaper in the hallways and the gorgeous breakfast room. Breakfast itself was superb - fruit, pastries, eggs, bacon, and infinite cappuccino. Staff bent over backwards to be friendly and helpful and all spoke near-perfect English. Reliable, free wifi (though remember that streaming video like netflix / amazon is not available in Europe). Only downsides: my room was tiny, shower leaked (not a huge deal since I wasn't the one who had to mop it up), and water temperature varied wildly and sometimes painfully, depending presumably on water being used elsewhere (I think this is common in Italy).

Beautiful Firenze

Would recommend Thu, Oct 25, 2012
The hotel was lovely. However, the double bed in a superior room was really, really small and very uncomfortable for 2 persons. Did not like having the bathroom immediately next to the bed. I would not stay in this type of room again. We very much enjoyed the beautiful dining area for breakfast and great breakfast buffet.

The hotel is really close to the Train Station and to the Tours' Meeting Points. It is close to the Duomo, to the Ponte Vieccho, Shopping and a good selection of restaurants.
