We were so satisfied the location...a stone throw away from Florence Cathedral plus it was surrounded with different kinds of shops. Very friendly staff and was surprised with the homey feeling of our suite. Thank you...I will highly recommend your hotel. I would recommend though, to have a bigger sign outside 😊

Large and clean room in old building without lift. Perfect location in center of the city. Nice and helpful staff. Private and separate bathroom. Just restart the WIFI router in the hall if the signal is weak or unstable.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the location was excellent, very central location and easy to get to all the sights. The room itself was spacious but so-so. It was a bit smelly and the bathroom was moldy. There's no lift or elevator so it was horrible going up with all our luggages. We didn't find the staff overly friendly,...

Nothing can beat the location of this place. However, it is also great value for money, super clean and, most importantly, very friendly and informative. Giulio offered some great recommendations for dining and we loved every place he mentioned. I would stay there again.

Just stayed here for 3 nights. Excellent, central location. Easy walk from train station and moments from the Duomo. Family room was ideal us (2 +2). Clean, spacious with tea/coffee in room and small fridge. You get a voucher for a discount at cafe around the corner for breakfast. Definitely recommend it and would return to stay again.

Great value for money in a fantastic location steps away from the duomo. Our room looked out on a pedestrian street - no view of the duomo, but lively activity to watch, including a three-man violin group one evening. Our room was spacious and had a kitchenette. Plenty of hangers for clothes. Toiletries are minimal - no lotion or hair...

Unbeatable location - half a block from the Duomo. Right in the heart of downtown. Very spacious and comfortable room. Bathroom was clean and modern. We were impressed to come back to a made-up room and bathroom each evening. Friendly and helpful staff during check-in. Would absolutely stay again!

Our stay at the hotel was AMAZING! The price was fantastic and the staff was very nice, helpful, and spoke English very well. I was traveling with 2 other friends and we were given a HUGE room, especially for Italy (usually in Europe the rooms are tiny). The bathroom was also very big. It was in the center of Florence...
