Stayed here as part of a tour.. So unfortunately we didn't exactly know what to expect. Hotel is quite basic, staff aren't the friendliest and the location isn't the best. Room was a generous size which made our stay a little better.

I ended up paying twice the price listed on the reservation, and pricing was a total scam. Dishonest staff. Showers have no doors, rooms stuffy and dirty. Air conditioning doesn't work, but the most frustrating thing is the price and the fact that they claim to be 4 stars. Total disaster of a hotel. Avoid.

The hotel location is not great. It is a little bit too far out from the city centre and it takes you about 15-20 min walk to the train station. Not far but long distance to drag your luggage unless you catch a cab. Room was small, a little bit dark and too noisy but it was clean. Breakfast was...

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a group and it was not good at all. The air con in our room didn't work at all and we woke up after having slept very little feeling very sick from the heat. The breakfast was practically inedible. The location was also not convenient. The hotel doesn't have what I...

The hotel was very basic. We did not eat breakfast here because we looked at the breakfast and it was so basic. Florence was nice. The hotel was an inexpensive cab ride away from city center. The Internet didn't work all the time.

I was abit apprehensive upon reading the reviews but overall its not bad. The hotel is clean, staff are friendly, you are 20 mins walk from the centre of Florence but you do get a great view from the front rooms here. I did ask for a quiet room just in case and I got a room on the 6th...

We stayed at this hotel in July with top deck. My husband got bedbugs. It was absolutely insane how much it created red craters all over his body. Topdeck was suppose to do a follow up with the hotel. Please avoid - in only an alternate reality could this be better than 2 star. We stayed on the third floor...

Not suitable for wheelchairs. Bathrooms are impossible to have a decent shower and the bathroom is very dated and has no where to hang the shower nozzle and there is no shower curtain or screen so the water goes everywhere. Hotel restaurant was simple and small and had very slow service with our large group. Location is a little far...

Stayed at the hotel during short spring break. Our room was clean, pretty big, river view. A bit noisy due to traffic, but after all day walking around Florence, you fall asleep and do not hear much. The rest of the hotel, well let's call it "shabby chic" (anyhow, you do not spend any time in it). The hotel could...
