    good location, no complains about the room, staff is really nice

    breakfast was really basic, fresh fruits would be great

  • Group of friends

    Hotel is within walking distance to the Duomo. However, it is very far getting from the main bus and train station to this location. The best option afterhours is a taxi which will cost about 15 euros one way.

    The balcony is not as nice as the picture shows; it is not well maintained. Watch out for the friendly older Italian man; he lkes to touch, caress, and hug females and kiss their hands. Do be left alone with him!

    The room was huge for an Italian hotel! Breakfast was good (pastries and freshly made coffee by barista) too! Also, the manager spoke good English and provided great advice on where to get advanced tickets for the Academy.

    We stayed here for several nights. On the final night, we saw a young man smoking in the doorway that led to the hotel. This is normally common for restaurants and stores, but never for hotels. We were surprised to see him because this was the first time. We later found out he was a hotel employee and were disappointed that he was lingering outside the hotel like that...unprofessional. I later had a run in with the man later when my Wifi password did not work. He refused to give me a new wifi password saying I used my 24 hours of time. This was frustrating because 1) I did not use all my time and 2) I was staying many nights so it doesn't make sense that I should be allowed the same 24 hours that someone staying one night gets.

    The hotel staff were wonderful, and the location was central to all the Florence sites. We really enjoyed our visit.

    Hotel staff - very helpful

    Value for money, too expensive for what it offers, apart from location there is nothing else I could recommend it for

    The reception staff were very friendly. Good shower and good bed.

    Very basic and functional. The hotel could do with a lick of paint, it's looking a bit tired.

    It's location is close to everything and price is cheap.

    Well, you get what you paid for. You can feel the coils of the mattress, the room is very small. The floor will be flooded every time you shower. The shower stall is tiny, one can barely move. Breakfast is very simple and same every day.

    Friendly staff at the reception, perfect location, nice rooms (nothing special but everything you need is there); good price for a 3* hotel in the centre of Florence (for a small economy room).

    Convenient location, not far from Michelangelo's David and the Duomo. Also, just before we went to our rooms last Saturday night, Roberto, the night receptionist, informed us that the clocks would be changing to Daylight time and that we would therefore lose one hour overnight. If he had not said this, we would have missed our train to Venice the next morning. All of the staff was friendly and the breakfast, while I would've maybe liked some eggs, was OK.

    Unfortunately we had a mosquito buzzing around in our room, rather unusual, I would think, for late March. The bathroom was small even by European standards, with no hooks or racks for towels. Finally, the furniture in the reception area needed cleaning - foul odor.

    The location is perfect, it's located in the heart of the city. The staff are cooperative and very helpful.

    The bathroom showers should be enclosed so it won't wet the whole bathroom when you take a shower.

  • Group of friends

    Amazingly nice staff, very helpful with our questions and requests. Great value for money. Central location, very close to Duomo and to Galleria Dell'Academia. Overall we were very satisfied!

    Unfortunately we left the bathroom door open, where the window was open too, and had to deal with a couple of late night mosquito kamikazes. Otherwise, just buy a repellent.

    They did not take my passport of my girlfriend when I checked in even though she was right next to me. Then when we returned at night and were about to go to sleep, we were woken up unexpectedly and had to register her. Next time, it would be better if they told me ahead of time both of us needed to show our passports.

    Most of the Hotel stuff were really helpful and the location was great, probably would not get better than this anyway.

    The hotel had this bad looking entrance and staircase which when you first enter makes you get worried about what you should expect. The internet was not that good as well.
