Satisfactory three star hotel in good location for seeing the central part of Florence. Just by the station so easy to get to and fro without need for taxi. Station area not the high spot of town but fine for purpose.
Staff was friendly, helpful and courtious.
This was a very nice clean hotel. It was in a good location for seeing the sights of Florence. We liked that it had a fridge ( unlike hotel in Rome). Breakfast was decent - meat, cheese, eggs (hard boiled), croissants, pastries, cappuccino - usual for Italy. We found an excellent recommendation for dinner in the hotel guide which we never would have found.
The parking was €20/day cash - but they took your car and returned it in good time.
Valua for money, very good price, very clean, very pleasant, good staff great breakfast, very relaxed atmosphere. Would I stay again, YES 1st. choice.
Friendly and helpful staff in a convenient location not far from the main train station but in a relatively quiet location. Breakfasts were good and the staff looked after us very well including great coffee. The night reception staff we were always courteous and helpful.
Air-conditioning was not turned out at the main board until we asked for it. Air-conditioning did not work very well. Also, sound-proofing between rooms is not very good. Maybe it was just the room we were in. If you use the health and wellness centre nearby, you will need to take a towel with you. Wifi is only available on the ground floor. It would be good for this to be extended to the other three floors.
The location is excellent - 3 mins SMN train Station and 5min Duomo. Delightfu; breakfast room and breakfast staff.
We were really surprised by this hotel. It is 3-star, but it wasn't worse 4-star hotel in which we used to stay. Good service. Very light rooms, even beautiful. Big TV, air condition (making warm also).
there was only few things which can be disliked: it can be noisy a bit (the walls were not thick enough) and the water cabin is very small.
Very good in all departments and very convenient for the railway station and even better for the autostazione for the airport bus (2 minutes walk). Staff were very pleasant and the interior was warm, clean and well-designed. We appreciated the wine and cake left in the room as it was my wife's birthday.
The staff was very kind and pleasent.Room was clean and the position of hotel is excelent.
Clean modern rooms in a good location close to the train station and sights in Florence.
The breakfast room in an atrium was spacious light and airy. The breakfast was provided was extensive and good quality and served in attractive colourful crockery. There was always a waitress on hand to help.
The rather tacky plastic flowers in the courtyard window boxes!
The hotel was clean and easily accessible from the train station. A laundry facility was nearby and the charge for the laundry was reasonable. It was a short walk to various sites such as the Uffizi Gallery, Duomo Cathedral, and the Accademia.
The Continental breakfast didn't include Cappucino.
I like the style of the hotel, good beds, and the location 5 minutes from the center
if you came with car, you have to pay 26 euros for the garage for 24 hours
the location is great, just beside the station, n not too much walk from the center. staff were very nice n helpful.
the breakfast was not good enough, very little choices. facilities were a bit old.
Position of the hotel is generally nice - close to the train station and centre (although everything is close to the town centre in Florence). The direct neighbourhood is not very nice, though, compared to other areas.
Internet in the room was very unstable. Breakfast has small variety.
