Nice staff at the desk, lady was very helpful. Good wifi in room, have a small frige at desk from where you can buy stuffs. Got a bus stop near by, historic centers are walk-able. Had a water kettle in the room...

The hotel is fine. A budget option, but I'm sure you know that on booking. It's good value for money. Location wise - it's not in the thick of things. Central Florence is a good distance away (15-20 mins walk away with all the roadworks) - but to be honest, we didn't mind the walk. They offer a complimentary breakfast which is a nice touch. Continental - but very filling. The pancake machine was a nice surprise. WIFI strength was just enough to get by. Not amazing - but not horrible. They also have water and juice available gratis in the lobby which is a nice touch. So why 2 stars off? We stayed here in the middle of the Lucifer heatwave. It was boiling. The aircon in our room was not working correctly. In my mum's room across the hall, at a higher temperature it was much cooler than our room at a lower temperature. We reported it several times to numerous members of staff. All we got were smiles and sympathy. That's just not good enough. The hotel had no fans - nothing to help. It was just "I'm sorry", we'll look into it. No action. The issue was not fixed and a room change was not offered. This is just not good enough and their response left us very disappointed in their service.

The front desk people are very helpful & the place was very clean & tidy :) Enjoyed the stay... Breakfast was good.. we were well guided by the receptionist for the local tour... Keep up the same good work :)

The hotel is centrally located. The room was clean and modern with very comfortable beds. Breakfast was exceptional and the staff is extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

my room was very quiet Breakfast selection was good. The staff was very helpful in making reservations for us. Since the hotel is about 15 minute walk from the main train station , the location is not good if you plan to take side trips from Florence to another city notice this distance. this hotel is very little and it seems that this is a apartment with breakfast I think it`s not 3 star hotel but in florence it has good price

Great hotel. Easily the nicest hotel that we stayed in during our vacation that was booked by our travel agency. The hotel was in walking distance to everything. The staff was friendly and very helpful and overall a nice experience.

Pros:very clean and big rooms,friendly staff,great breakfast. Cons:location was quite but a little far from the centre, the view was the parking, we couldn't smoke in our room even if both we wanted to.

A About a 20 minute walk to the centre of the historic part of city but well worth the extra walk. Super clean, spacious room and accommodating staff. Not as close as I thought to train station. Breakfast was good. Not simply the continental stuff.

Used this hotel as our base in Florence. 10 min walk from train station and 15 to main sites. Warm and welcoming rooms very clean and modern and breakfast very good. Ideal for our needs and recommended if you're off to Florence!

I stayed here with my Mrs for her birthday surprise weekend and was impressed with how the check in was quick and smooth and the staff are very helpful. They offered us drink when we arrived which was nice. The room was nice and enough space. The bed was nice a bit quirky but that's minor. The location is very good close to the railway station and to town about 15-20 minute walk which is nice. The breakfast was decent you can't really complain unless you are fussy. The TV was annoying i brought my hard drive to watch movies on in evening when we return from long day out but it didn't work in the TV. The internet was ok inconsistent at sometimes kept stopping here and there but overall a great stay.
