“the feeling of being taken back in time”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

We stayed in this hotel from the 13th -17th February. We arrived at around mid night and were not shown where to go to our room. As it was midnight we didn't want to make any noise in trying to get into the room so I went back to reception and the night porter came and showed us how to get into the room. The room was lovely and the bathroom was one of the nicest bathrooms i have had in a hotel. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels and this was comparable.
The ambience of the hotel was second to none and gave you the feeling of truly being in Florence and I my mind could not help trying to think of it in Michaelangelo's time.
The staff in the breakfast room were extremely welcoming especially the lady in charge who could not do enough for us.
The reception staff were excellent in giving directions and locations for places to eat.
mimo's accross the road was a nice restauarant bit pricey for just having something to eat and the other restaurant giardalino was good and not as pricey but not the same atmosphere as mimo's.
the hotel is not far at all from anywhere i was really pleased wiith this as my husband has mobility problems.
This hotel was a good find and a good price.
One thing I would say and this is by no means a complaint. I straighten my hair and I could not do this in the bathroom or dressing room as there was no electric socket but i couldn't do this in the bedroom as there was no mirror. I found myself going between the two rooms to do my hair.
I would recommend this hotel to my friends and thoroughly enjoyed my stay

Room Tip: We had a deluxe garden room and it was lovely. i would pick this again.

we had a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel with my family - 4 bed room was very large and marble bathroom modern and clean. The street entrance gives way to this lovely elegant hotel with all the facilities you may require. Wonderful breakfast room overlooks the garden area with old world elegance. Location is perfect to walk to all attractions and 15min walk from train station(with bags). HIGHLY recommended!!!!! Would stay again in the blink of an eye!

We traveled in January so the tourists were at a low. We received a complementary upgrade on our room and were frankly spoiled where we ended up. It was an amazing room with a great shower! The staff was polite and very helpful on our first trip to Florence. They recommended restaurants that were very good and gave directions that were spot on. The location is a 5-10 minute walk from the train station that was aggrivating with luggage, but after our time in the city, it was evident the area immediately outside the train station is not the best area to stay. I think you'll find this true with many Italian cities. The Orto d'Medici is around the corner from the Academy of Art ("The David" among others...) and places you in a good position to walk to the heart of the city. Breakfast was nice, and the grounds are beautiful, especially the inner courtyard. I highly recommend you stay here!

Thanks for the nice review, listing all the things you liked during your stay in Florence. This area is very old and has a special feeling for its past and also for the present since it is very close to the University, so you can easily see students around and find many shops loved by the locals. Thank you!

Great location, close to most sites. Make sure to get the upgrade to the view of il Duomo. It is totally worth it and not that much more extra.

I am glad to read how you enjoyed the Superior room with top-floor superb view of the Duomo. With a little extra amount you can grant yourself the best view for a very romantic sejour. Thank you!

Our hotel is located in the centre of Florence, along the old "via San Gallo", just a 10 minutes walk from the Duomo and only 2 minutes from the Michelangelo's David. Breakfast is served in a room with frescos and, in summertime, outside in a terrace. Thansk for your appreciation!
