Great location, walkable to many major attractions. Nice 4th floor terrace overlooking the Arno River. Staff are very helpful. Pay for the room including breakfast. Very nice breakfast buffet. Ask for a cappuccino; better than the buffet coffee. The only two negatives are the pillows, which are thin wafers, and poor Internet access. The lack of internet is difficult for...

The room was clean and was 20 mins walking distance to main attractions. Contintental breakfast was consistent and staff was quite friendly. However, there was no wifi the whole week that o stayed there and apparently this the same the complaints from previous guests.

Elegant small hotel on the river Arno. The roof deck overlooks the minidam in the river so it sounds like a waterfall. You can also see David in Michelangelo Piazza On the other side of the river. Great place for wine at the end of the day. The 14 bus around the corner gets you to the train station in...

Friendly and warm reception. Although the pillows was not so comfortable for me, and it looked like has mildew on the wall of shower room, but still I probably would like to stay in this hotel next time.Very appreciated of their excellent hospitality. 雖然距離古城重要的景點或餐廳必須走一段路(10-20分鐘)但這是尋求安靜旅館必須付出的代價。非常感謝櫃檯工作人員提供了很多協助,希望他們能在清潔方面更進步一些
