Recent guest reviews

This cute hotel is located near St. Lourenço monastery and has confortable warm enviroment, an excellent breakfast with fresh orange juice, and a good stuff. Even by night you can walk aroud it without fear and choose restaurants, cafés and bars. We went to train station just walking with big bags on wheels.

I love this place! It’s great waking up in the morning and walk thru the garden... peaceful and incredible quiet even if you are right in downtown Florence. The breakfast is awesome as you can get fresh pastry as normal European style. Eggs, bacon and salami are provided too if you are looking to get a larger one

Ideal location, straight walk into the heart of Firenze and not far from Firenze SMN train station. Staff friendly, great service, lovely rooms and layout. Breakfast was a little basic but I am pretty fussy. Really cool OJ machine. Would recommend to anyone

Room was great, clean, fast wifi. Email communication was great, I asked them to arrange me a parking since I was arriving late. Parking is extra cost. People who work there are very nice. Breakfast was excellent, since it is the most important thing in the morning to do :)

Very friendly staff at the front desk, and a lovely housekeeper who was very sweet. The staff speaks multiple languages and are very helpful. We had a large room with a balcony view. It's a little far from the train station (about a 20 minute walk) and it can be hard to navigate the narrow cobblestone streets with luggage, so consider a taxi. It's also about a 20 to 30 minute walk to the Duomo and other historical sites, which wasnt a problem for us, but might be for other people. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Every single person we spoke with at the front counter was incredibly friendly and gracious. We ran into the room keeper multiple times, and she was very warm and lovely. The room had a balcony and was very spacious. The only trouble we ran into were the group of women having a laugh down the hall after midnight. It was difficult to try to sleep but they eventually stopped. That said, we did not know room tipping was a thing and didn't keep many euros on us so we're a bit embarrassed about that. We even Googled it but there was no definitive answer. A tip was absolutely deserved.

Very clean, good rooms, all in good condition, nice staff, good quality for the price and great location. I would rebook here if I travel again to Florence. The City itself is beautiful and easy to manage.

Wonderful and helpful staff, very convenient location, walking distance to Fortezza da Basso, nice clean and renovated rooms. Lovely breakfast area and nice patio and inside garden. Very much recommended.

The hotel is beautiful. It has a modern style but with historic character. The breakfast was great and staff was kind. The room itself was clean and had high ceilings and a big window. It was within walking distance of all the major sites. We really enjoyed our stay.

A fantastic 8th stay at this hotel and can’t wait for the 9th Rooms are clean and spacious, public areas always clean and very well appointed The breakfast is a joy and very substantial - unusual in Italy smaller hotels Staff Excellent
