Great location, friendly staff, very kind to arrange for a late check out. It just doesn't feel like a four star hotel everywhere - the lobby is very bland, elevators cramped, and my room was very small. A good option, especially for below €80 per night.

Friendly, clean, great location, nice terrace, great breakfast all at a decent price. They handled the Covid situation very well everything was taken care of. Like all Italian cities the car parking is expensive but they come and take the car and bring it back for 30€ a day.

We booked this hotel for our 3 day break in Florence, we travelled from Rome on the train and took a taxi from the station which was 10 euro and not necessary as it’s only a short walk to the hotel. We were checked in efficiently by the friendly receptionist and allocated room 505. We had reserved and paid extra for a room with view and strictly speaking we had a view , but it was of the main shopping street so I’m unsure if any of the rooms have a view of anything other than this as the hotel is situated in the main shopping street.The room was sparkling clean and had a comfortable Queen sized bed . The bathroom was also well equipped and has shower bath and a hairdryer. There are no tea or coffee making facilities, we were booked on a room only basis so if you need you morning cuppa you have to book breakfast 15 euro each or go to the cafe which is part of the hotel, there is however a mini bar. We had a few issues with our room which remained unresolved, the first being that the shower control lever was broken albeit we could get the shower to work, they sent maintenance up immediately, he inspected the shower and advised he would return to fix however it remained broken when we left. Secondly the plug in the bathroom sink was stuck in the plug hole and could not be removed thus we couldn’t drain the used dirty water from this sink, this was reported to a very curt receptionist on our second day, this issue also remained unresolved when we left and we were forced to drain the sink with a plastic cup both days. The hotel home page gives an evening view of the roof terrace with candlelight tables which is a little misleading as you are only permitted to use the terrace if you purchase breakfast, we asked the receptionist at one point if we could sit on the roof terrace in the afternoon and were very rudely advised we could not , I don’t really understand why not. There is a lovely cafe attached to the hotel which serves delicious croissant and cakes and we used this on several occasions during our stay , the staff there were very nice . I would recommend this hotel for its location only 5 minutes to the Duomo and very centrally located, staff are in the main very nice and the rooms are spacious and airy . I would definitely stay here again.
