    The location of the Hotel was excellent for the train station and for all the main attractions.

    The Hotel was very quiet when we stayed there and it felt quite austere at times.

    The style of the hotel, the room forniture and bathroom size and the quality of the breakfast. Personnel very warm and welcoming staff. The location of the hotel is very convenient if you are visiting Florence. Ask for the superior room, you will not regret for the extra money!

    Hotel provided a complimentary upgrade to a Junior Suite with a great view and a very large 5-star bath room. Breakfast was great and great location near train station.

    Two elevators to get to the room.

    Rooms are beautiful! We had two adjoining rooms and both were fabulous. Staff were very nice and spoke English. One of the best rooms for the money. The breakfast is excellent with a large selection and plenty to eat. You will not go hungry! Very convenient - within walking distance of popular attractions. A 5-minute walk from the train station.

    We decided on the hotel for its convenience to the railway station and historical sites of Florence. The Hotel design and decorations were very nice.

    We had a comfortable room with a good sized bathroom. Apart from the convenient location, the hotel had a bright lovely breakfast room and cozy lounge. Very helpful and accommodating staff.

    We looked out to a temporary construction in the piazza. Should be okay another time.

    Location fantastic, only 3 mins from station but hotel has no visible signage on the front, tiny sign to right side of door but it is hidden by a plant, person from another hotel took us there after wandering for 30 mins, all staff the very best. Yes i would return now that i know where to go.

    No visible identification sign on the front of the hotel, tiny sign on the right of the doorway hidden by a plant. Disappointed as we would not have needed to walk around for 30mins. Lovely person from another hotel (think hotel Universo) walked us there.

    The room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was very nice and in a pleasurable surrounding with excellent service.

    Although, we liked the room very much, there was not a view. I thought a superior double room was going to have that. The room was very dark and cavernous. But after a long day out in the crowds of Florence, it was always nice to come back to.

    The location of the Santa Maria Novella was excellent! It was about a block+ from the train/bus station and about 2 blocks from the Duomo. I'd say, an execellent location for walking anywhere within Florence. We had a wonderful room with a king bed and large bathroom. We requested a room with a bathtub (and it was the biggest tub, I was able to sink down into and soak away!) There was a lovely hot breakfast in the morning, with a variety of cereals, eggs & bacon, fruit, meats & cheeses, and breads to select from. The roof-top terrace was a nice retreat to go to in the evening after a long day of touring and relax with a glass of wine or tea. You could even see the dome of the Duomo from this hotel, quite lovely at night!

    The only minor thing I had with the hotel, being a light-sleeper, was even though there was air conditioning (and we didn't need it in October), I like to have the fan running at night to keep it a bit cooler and add a "white-noise" effect to help us sleep.

    Wonderful, central location and very close to the train station. Fabulous breakfast included - wonderful service in dining room. Beautiful view of Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Construction work currently underway, however did not effect our stay.

    Staff helpful, but not as friendly as other hotels on our trip to Italy.

    Superb

    A 5-minute walk from the train station, overlooking the church of the same name. Understated entrance, so we were glad to know the address. Beautiful furnishings, funky arrangement of lovely rooms (getting up to ours from the lobby was an adventure: 2 elevator rides with a half- flight of stairs down in between, and multiple turns down long corridors). We received a complimentary upgrade into a two-storie suite -- parlor and full bath downstairs, our bedroom upstairs, with a clear amazing view of the piazza and mountains 1 way, and the chaos of rooftops and Duomo the other. We're fairly independent and once checked in, declined the bellhop's cheerful offer to escort us, but the receptionist advised us to accept, and she was right.

    Excellent location, and very clean and comfortable stay.

    The hotel staff are efficient and professional, but not overly friendly to their guests. That tends to be the style in Florence because it is so busy.
