Old world charm, set in the cobble stoned streets of Florence. The thought of once a monastery , gives it a nosatalgic feel .The rooms are set away from each other down long hallways or up staircases. Very private. Very close to the Duome, shopping and quaint shops.

The hotel is a converted convent and suitably quirky, for instance our bathroom was down a small fight of stairs. We loved it where as some reviewers hated it. If you like a friendly clean hotel with good staff and are not concerned about facilities such as gyms etc I would recommend it. Breakfast is a basic but pleasant continental...

Interesting converted convent building, perhaps best described as 'shabby chic' but we felt was in line with its boutique type description. We liked the slight quirky decor, overall happy with the room, big comfortable bed, lovely linens that were changed regularly throughout our stay. Nice walk in style rustic shower room, surprisingly with English toiletries! Mini bar prices were really...

We booked the J and J through our agent, and expected the same quality we have received from many other €330 per night hotels in Europe. We arrived to Florence and checked in. The personnel does not speak English or Spanish well. We were shown our room, which was their best suite. The room was very nice, although dated. Very...

Good hotel, well situated near the historical center of Florence. Room 14. Quite large with a private terrace. Comfortable bed. Very spacious bathroom with all the commodities. Breakfast and cocktail (in the evening) complete and good. Negative points : the room lacks of lights and plugs (to reload the smartphones for example). Not so pleasant to shave oneself in the...

The room was nice and the overall look of the hotel was vey nice. Good breakfast with good coffee. On the other hand I didn't have the best experience at the hotel. There was construction workers 2 meters away from my window working on the roof which started at 7:50am (which the hotel did not warn me about this). It...

Stayed here for 3 nights, staff really nice and helpful. Area safe and close to shops, bars & restaurants. We stayed in Junior Suite Split Level, bed comfy with good quality linen. A real pain having to go down stairs to use loo in the middle of the night but that's not a big deal. Room is dull and sofa...

We were thrilled with this small boutique hotel - converted Convent, with all the original features just beautiful. The location was superb,just far enough from Duomo but easy to walk in every day. The rooms are lovely and all very different. We went for some amazing meals that the reception recommended each night, some local to the hotel some on...

Loved being in a historic bldg. The room was very nice - but the hotel was not very close to the center of town - not too far - but not right in the middle of things. A strange rule - you are not allowed to eat in your room - might have something to do with the fact age...

A nice Historic Hotel located near all what you want to see in Florence. The Room was clean and the Personal friendly. The Bathroom we think needs a renovation. Breakfast and Service was as we wanted it.
