Location is convenient. Room was nice. Service was very good.

Easy walking to all of the sights. Close proximity to the bus and rail station. Quiet rooms even when overlooking the busy square.

Front desk staff very cordial. Good location close to train station and on lovely plaza.

Beautiful classic old hotel from 1400s. Immaculate and charming. Single room is very small and dark with tiny covered window - feels like you’re in a cave. Comfortable bed and great tub/shower. Staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. Even though they have a lift, be prepared to climb some stairs as the building is on different levels. You must state no stairs if you can’t climb them. Still I would recommend this hotel as staff is so helpful and accommodating.

Excellent hotel with a perfect location. The staff and service was excellent. The breakfast was excellent! I really enjoyed staying there 👍

This hotel is in a very nice and central location. The staff was really friendly and the breakfast was excellent. Would recommend

The location is central. Perhaps one thing a traveler might want to consider is that the hotel is a three minute walk from the bus terminal for the airport to Florence city center service. There are a large number of very good restaurants in the area and the major landmarks are within a 7 minute walk, more or less. The breakfast is excellent as well. My room was on the small side, but it was for one and I was there on business in any event. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and the turn-down service was unfailing.

Can’t beat the location - walking distance to market and Duomo! Includes a nice continental breakfast. staff is very friendly and welcoming. Only complaints were poor WiFi and lack of AC this time of year.

It was the perfect place to stay. Great location, great breakfast, great staff, and the rooms were fantastic. I will stay there again when I bring my family.

Loved our spacious and spotless clean room and gorgeous bathroom. Every night we had a piece of chocolate on our pillow. Also appreciated the comp water bottles. Front desk staff were extremely lovely. Breakfast was fit for a king. i would definitely stay here again.

We spent a weekend in Florence, traveling by train from Rome. The hotel was a 5-10 minute walk from the station, which was perfect when lugging a suitcase. Hotel staff was most accommodating — mapping out directions to places we had booked, making recommendations for places to eat that were off the beaten track and tips for shopping for particular items. Hotel breakfast was fantastic— a most relaxing way to start one’s day — food, ambience and service were first rate. Room was well appointed and comfortable. Bathroom had many extra amenities — robe, slippers that were a plus.

We loved everything about it. The hotel was beautiful. T

Elegant and stylish small hotel. My room was very comfortable with a stunning view of the church of Santa Maria Novella. The hotel roof offers lovely views of the Duomo and Campanile as well. Staff was very helpful and breakfast offered a wide range of choices. I have already booked a return visit.

Wonderful location and room. A maze to find your way to access the rooftop terrace but lovely once you found it. Spacious and pleasant bathroom in junior suite. Fresh fruit and prosecco were lovely added touch! Terrific place.

Highly recommend, friendly staff, clean, great breakfast, perfect location. Stayed at four places in Italy, this place was favorite.

This hotel is walking distance to everything. Breakfast was so good and lots of options to choose from. You get water everyday but we did have to ask sometimes for it, but they brought it immediately. Room was very nice with windows. Beds were comfortable. The rooftop terrace was amazing! The hotel can be a maze but it was fun figuring it out! If I come to Florence again I am for sure staying here so I don't regret staying in a hotel that's not great. It was perfect!

The hotel was clean, well decorated, excellent breakfast and most of all near to everything in Florence. I could walk to the hotel from the train station in Florence.

Great location and staff. Centrally located, walking distance to all the museum's.

Great hotel . Big rooms , with a great location . Just a few blocks to everything .
