Hotel in a strategic location, easily accessible by car, on the side of the centre next to the Stazione Leopolda and the Parco delle Cascine. The hotel has an underground parking (expensive) and is really 10 minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio and palazzo della Signoria. The rooms are spacious, large bathrooms, well furnished and really comfortable beds. A really good accommodation
This hotel is just amazing. It looks nothing from the outside, rather dull and imposing with red brick. Step inside and the whole façade turns into elegance and beauty. Our room was 628 and it was gorgeous. Spacious, immaculate and had lots of other qualities, i.e. mini bar (payable on departure, quite expensive), beautiful shower and bath toiletries, large fluffy towels and a good sized TV. The King sized bed was comfortable with luxurious bedding. Good air con. The breakfast has a good selection and is situated on -1 floor. Masks are compulsory in all common areas in the hotel, including collecting your breakfast and such like. Only mask free whilst seated and eating. Outside the hotel, 25 yards to the left, across a fairly busy road is the metro which takes you direct to Florence. Stay on the tram until the very last stop (this is announced), cross the road and your journey around Florence can begin. We ate at various restaurants, cafes, wine bars and each one had it's own delights. My favourite spots were View on Art Rooftop and Move on Italian pub & record store. Art rooftop is picturesque with stunning views of Duomo. Drinks are expensive but as a one off, worth it. Move on pub was a great location for sitting and watching the world go by. Great service in both. We explored Florence by foot (average 30,000 steps) which is so easy to do as so much to see. We took the city tour bus too, fantastic way to get great photos. We visited the Pitti Palace and gardens. Make sure you get the correct ticket to see both. Walk the Ponte Vecchio bridge and revel in the splendour of the jewellery shops. Florence has so many sites and beautiful monuments, it is hard to mentioned them all. Good tip - flights from UK direct to Florence take forever. We flew Manchester to Pisa, took the airport shuttle to Pisa train station and travelled to Florence. We used the tram and got off right outside our hotel. Great adventure to add to an inspiring and breath-taking holiday x…
Been there two times in the last couple of months. Very conveniently located, it is directly accessible by tram nr. 2 both from the airport and from the main railway station. Hotel is standard but clean and modern, own parking, good Internet connection, pleasant buffet for breakfast and a nice bar / lounge at the entrance.
By American standards, I think all European hotels are small and this one is no different - actually might have been slightly larger than usual. But it was impeccably clean, We enjoyed a fun night down in the lobby bar with some other members of our tour group and the breakfasts were good.
The hotel is in front of a new built tram line, which connects you to downtown in less than 15 minutes. The rooms are exceptional, large, comfortable and clean, and the breakfast is excellent. It was the best hotel we stayed in our trip to Italy.
