Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

While traveling with my family, I stayed in a single room. It was a clean room with good air conditioning. The service from the front desk was great. They helped us make phone calls to book activities during the week. It is a safe location that is close to the train station.

We visited the hotel from May 23-27, 2022. We agree with earlier reviews, that the hotels location is excellent, being only a 5-10 minute walk to the central train station. Our room was clean, and accommodated our teenaged daughter traveling with us well. We felt secure having to return the key each time we left. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Everything you would ever need is within a short walk. The breakfast area was clean, and well supplied. The staff serving the breakfast area were always attentive and pleasant. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Hotel is about 5 mins from the station, bit longer when dragging suitcases behind you. We were a bit early, and our room was ready check in was friendly. The room size was ok, bright and clean but found the air conditioning not the best. Bed was comfortable. The next day the milk in the room was not replenished neither was the cup washed. Also was only left with a few sheets of toilet paper. Had to ask reception for more. Attention to detail in the cleaning the room could be improved. Breakfast was good, although a few to many sweet offerings for my liking. The lady who is doing the breakfast was always cheery. You can ask for any coffee or just hot water for tea. There is a pot of black coffee to serve yourself. Plenty of places to eat, but watch out for the opening times.

The room was small but well decorated so that it didn't feel oppressive. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was fine. The wifi was good enough to allow me to run a video conference session. Reception staff were efficient and friendly. The hotel is really well located less than 5 minutes on foot to the main station from where you can get a tram straight to the airport. Going the other way in 5 minutes you are in the old city of Florence. Breakfast was interesting as everything was individually wrapped in clingfilm. All things considered, I would stay there again given the opportunity.

Very cozy hotel. The breakfast was nice and complete. The room was spacious, clean and pretty with anything you could need during your stay including coffee, tea, etc. The location was the best with a view of the duomo. we were very satisfied with the hotel, it was the best one we stayed at in our whole trip to italy.

You cannot beat this location. It was walkable to everything - the train station, the city center and the Duomo and other sites. The front desk staff was very hospitable and allowed us to store our bags when we arrived early. One thing to note: the room was HOT. We asked about the air conditioning advertised and were told it was too early in the year for it to be on. It did not negatively impact our stay too much, but sharing for awareness.

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Florence. Hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the train station which was super convenient for me and for anyone planning to use Florence as a base for visiting Pisa etc. Hotel was small but friendly, rooms were small but comfy. Hotel is within walking distance of all the main sites. Best thing about hotel was the breakfast - wide selection. No complaints!

Went to visit friends in Florence. The hotel was near the station but also near to the town centre a short walk. Room was on road side but no noise. Staff were pleasant and room was well kept and clean. Enjoyed Florence and going back again soon.

We had only one night in the hotel, but it was amazing! Very friendly staff, nearby to the city center, amazing breakfast provided, clean room. I would definitely recommend it for others. It was a bit pricy but affordable in general. Thank you!
