The hotel and the experience was pretty good. It has a good accessibility to many tourist spots so becomes easier to travel. The overall cleanliness can be improved and the rooms can be made more orgnised.

This hotel pretty much ticked all of the boxes apart from location. Even still its only a 15 minute walk to the train station or the city centre (duomo). The staff are friendly, the rooms are nice and modern, the location (aside from the walking) is quite nice next to a little park with a pretty fountain. Wifi works well...

A welcoming hotel. friendly staff who were happy to help and to sort out any issue they can. Location of the hotel is good, not too far from the train station and town area. Close to a small park to relax in. I would be happy to stay here again if the issues with the beds were sorted.

The hotel really liked. The staff is attentive and friendly. The number is simply super at its own expense. Breakfasts lived up to expectations. The location for starting a trip around the city is very convenient. The only wish is to increase the internet speed a bit. In general, I liked everything, thank you! :-) With best wishes, Alexander Gubenko,...

A truly superb mix of great value for money and great service. Hotel is located about 15 minutes walk from the main station close to one of the main thoroughfares in Florence with a number of buses picking up and dropping off within walking distance of the hotel. The area itself is quite quiet, most of the touristy stuff is...
