    Our stay was an extension to a tour itinerary booking where we were upgraded to a junior suite for 2 nights overlooking the square. The staff were very helpful and responded to all requests, The rooms we used were adequately clean and beds very comfortable.

    Mini bar prices were extremely expensive. No variation in the breakfast menu which was very limited, cooked food was only scrambled egg and streaky bacon every day. The plumbing in the room was noisy at night, taps and toilet dripped. There are many corridors of multiple levels with stairs that need to be climbed etc. Woken in the night by people bumping cases up and down stairs. Lifts were unreliable and the access to rooftop sun deck was locked, no sun loungers on the sun deck seen through the locked door. There are no lunch or evening meal preparations at the hotel so no room service meals. Tea and coffee supplies in the room were meagre with milk supplies for only for one drink per person. Laundry services are also highly priced.

    excellent, out of the 8 hotels i stayed in italy/france, this one really exceeded my expectation in the following ways: 1) truly helpful and friendly staff, 2) good value for money, 3) nice hotel design, 4) heart touching services. I sincerely recommand anyone to stay there in Firenze.

    Central location was exceptional and the hotels' display of art etc. was also excellent. Recent renovations to corridors and rooms meant the hotel presented itself as clean & fresh. Our bathroom was amongst the best we have experienced.

    Our room suffered from both smoke smells and sewerage smells from an internal courtyard facing window. The hotel was a rabbit warren and several lifts were not working - any fire would prove disastrous to guests..

    The hotel was perfect and very good value for money

    They did not have parking but have an arrangement with a parking that picks up the car and returns it to the door when needed. But is is not cheap.

    The staff were very helpful at reception and at the bar. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The location was ideal to access all the major attractions such as the Uffizi gallery.

    The shower in room 422 trickles water out slower than a snail.

    The hotel is small and charming and overlooks the Piazza. We had a beautiful corner room and our teenagers had 2 rooms on the back, one of which had a fantastic view of the top of the Duomo. The breakfast room is beautiful and the breakfast was ample and delicious. We walked everywhere from the hotel inckluding to and from the train station.

    Another reviewer had mentioned this and it is a small thing but quite irritating once a day - our beautiful bathroom overlooking the Piazza had had a bathtub and shower in one with a cheap shower curtain that blew into the shower and stuck to you the entire time you were showering. I did mention it to the front desk. Our kids' rooms only had showers with nice glass doors.

    Proximity to train station for an excellent quality hotel.A smaller hotel giving a more intimate atmosphere. The hotel decoration is classic modern florentine with an old world charm. Lots of character

    This hotel is actually 2 buildings with floors on different levels. We needed 2 different lifts and 2 staircases (1 with 6 steps/1 with 2 steps) to get to our room in the 2nd building. Our room then had 20 steps from the living/bathroom area to the attic bedroom - for us very quaint..The hallways (in keeping with decor) are darkened with twists and turns. In general I would not advise this hotel for elderly people or mobility impaired people - who might require a flatter and more general hotel layout..

    Spotless, excelent location near Central Train Station and historic atractions, fantastic breakfast, best value for my money and time.

    Gorgeous decor and very friendly staff. Well located, an easy walk from the train station and the Duomo.

    The wifi was very bad. The hotel a little hard to find as the brass name plate was hidden behind a tree.

    This hotel is a favorite for Florence. It is very stylish and the staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. It is ideally located near the train station so you can walk to and from. Will definitely stay here again. Beautiful.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Great location a block from train station on a very quiet piazza. Our rooms looked out on to Piazza Santa Maria Novella and then the church across the way. Great value for the location - central Florence city center five minutes away by walking. Rooms very clean and individually decorated. Staff friendly and very knowledgeable. Breakfast one of the best of the trip.

  • Couple

    The hotel is in an excellent location for visiting Florence. 5 minutes walk from the Train Station (Firenze S.M.N), and 10 minutes walk from Piazza de la Signoria. The Hotel itself is beautiful, luxurious, decorated in Baroque style. Paintings of Napoleon dominate one of the living rooms, while a sculpture welcomes you when entering. The room had a domed bed, was spacious, with beautiful tuscan marble bathroom, and had a view to the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Breakfast was fabulous and in an exquisite room, taking you a couple of centuries ago...The staff was very helpful, too (helped us book a romantic trip by boat in Arno River). Don't miss the internet room in the basement! A marvel of design!! We definitely recommend this hotel.

    Only one computer in the internet room.
