Got this primarily because it was convenient to the train station, about 600m I'd guess, I'd had good experience with BWs elswhere in Europe, and the price was right. The room was extremely quiet, and although an odd layout (as are so many in old buildings in Europe) relatively spacious. The bathroom was super clean! Its also within easy walking... More

We stayed in this hotel about a week ago on Valentines Day weekend and it was a perfect choice for this particular day. The most beautiful thing in the hotel was the breakfast terrace. It was facing right through to the Al Duomo Cathedral which is the busiest spot in the city and close to everywhere. Location of the hotel... More

In the very heart of Florence a nice and comfortable hotel. My only remark is that a hotel of a medium-high level as this one could remove the fee (€ 2) for a half bottle of mineral water. But maybe this is just my opinion (I love spanish hotel chains!).
