Arrived in Florence by train and walked to hotel from station. Twin bedded room as requested was just fine although extremely expensive. Fifth Floor view overlooked Via Cerretani but...

I definitely recommend this hotel, which is very close to the train station and to main touristic points. Rooms are really comfortable, quiet. Internet access was free. Breakfast on top floor is correct, but not excellent. I'd absolutly stay again at this hotel.

This hotel was in a great location by the duomo and only a 5 minute walk from the train station. The room was clean and the bathroom was very nice. The hotel also provides free wireless in different areas of the hotel which was nice. The upstairs balcony restaurant is probably the selling point of this hotel. There is a...

My husband and I and two friends stayed here over the Easter weekend. We can find no fault with the hotel at all - helpful staff at reception, good sized rooms/bathrooms, and best of all is its location near to the SNM station and the Duomo.
