A truly excellent hotel in Florence. Central location makes it easy to get to all the key sites. A fantastic team of staff who were friendly and helpful for booking to the day we left (and were able to book a number of the key sites in advance - so you can avoid the queues). And to top it all,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This boutique hotel greeted us with a friendly and very helpful desk clerk who readily and cheerfully answered all our questions. The elegance of the hotel becomes apparent when you step out of the elevator on your floor. Much of the original structure has been restored and tastefully updated. Our room offered comfort and a look at some of the...

The location of the hotel is excellent. You are close to everything and is very easy to find. The staff could not have been more helpful and bent over backwards to make my stay wonderful.

We stayed here for a weekend on our wedding anniversary. Central location, easy to walk to all the sights. Warm and friendly staff who helped us book tickets to the museum. A large comfortable room facing a garden courtyard, delicious tasting menu with local produce in the restaurant.

I visited this lovely hotel at the end of January and stayed for 3 nights. To be honest, my room is not spacey. However, it's still warm and cozy. The location and breakfast are good. However, the service and consideration of the management team is impressive. The hotel provides everything the tourists may need. Extra UBS, plugs, and bottle opener,...etc....

We've been to Florence many times over the years and have stayed in hotels in different neighborhoods; however, we have finally found a place that will be our home in Florence every time we visit this beautiful city. Although the outside is modest, it's the inside that shines: the unique rooms, the exceptionally helpful staff and the restaurant. The building...

I spent four nights here and was very happy with my room (clean, comfortable bed, desk for working). Within walking distance of the Duomo, Santa Maria Novella train station, and many other beautiful sites. The staff was kind and able to communicate well in English. Breakfast was included and was delightful. Pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, bread, and special dishes prepared...

My friend and I were impressed from the outset. A lot of effort has been put into creating an artistic, boutique hotel experience, and they have definitely delivered. Our room was spacious, for what we were expecting, and very comfortable. Breakfast was high quality and we enjoyed reading about and sampling the products created from the hotel's own primary produce...

San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
