Reviewed 3 July 2015

Very nice, clean and comfortable hotel. Room was spacious and bed comfortable. Found room to be a bit noisy in the mornings with movement in room above us and busy traffic outside. Breakfast was served in small garden which was lovely. We found the breakfast to be plentiful in selection but not great in quality with breads and pastry shop stale. About 20 mins walk to old town and sightseeing . We went to a couple of local restaurants recommended by the friendly reception staff which were very good.

What a great hotel, felt like a bed and breakfast but with all the privacy of a hotel. Charming clean rooms, with full bath/shower, balcony doors (but no walk out) and plenty of garden seating opportunities for breakfast or afternoon/evening wine. Great location with only 10 min walk to see the famous David and to great shopping.

My fiancee and I stayed here at the beginning of June, and we don't have a bad word to say about the hotel or the staff.

It is conveniently located (a 10-15 minute walk to the Duomo, if it's not too hot), and there are a few bus stops nearby. The room was clean, the air conditioning was welcome (not freezing cold, but after a day walking around in the heat, it's very pleasant). Bed was big and very comfortable.

Continental breakfast was included, and there was always a very good selection of pastries, cereal, yoghurts, etc. The staff were very polite and courteous, and the coffee they serve is very nice. The staff at reception are very helpful too.

Taxi ride from the hotel to the centre of town is around EUR10, and to the airport is a set EUR20 (plus baggage, around EUR3).

If you're planning to come to Florence but don't want to pay the huge prices of the hotels right in the centre, this is a very good alternative. We would definately stay again.

Great hotel. Clean and comfortable. Located in 20 min walking distance from the city center. Personnel is very polite and professional, helped us with public transportation, answered many questions on getting around the city, booked a taxi and prepared breakfast boxes for early morning departure.
Breakfast was good enough. Service at the cafeteria was really good.
Room service was perfect. We asked for a tea kettle, it was delivered to our room right away. I also asked for a different pillow and it was there in no time.
Wi-Fi was available and worked very well.
Thank you for making the Florence experience enjoyable!
