    Convenient to station and within a reasonable distance of the main tourist attractions. Breakfast was good compared to many in Italy.

    Beds and pillows were hard and uncomfortable. My room at the front of the hotel was very noisy but I suspect this is true of many hotels in Florence.

  • Group of friends

    It was old fashioned and that was welcome as it gave character. The bar was open all the time and the staff were willing to serve until late. We were on a culture trip (which is not an option on the tick box part of the revue) as the city is small the hotel is ideally located. They also have a companion business of a trattoria, just down the road, which is excellent for dinner. They also have a cool evening outside terrace on the first floor.

    Breakfast is fine, but very unimaginative and no fruit.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was a decent size with a mini fridge. There was a good selection for breakfast. It was a 5 min walk from the main train station, and an easy walk to all the main sites and the shopping area. The hotel had a nice terrace that you could sit out on with tables and chairs. The bathroom was a good size.

    The walls were paper thin, so you could hear everything going on in other rooms.

    The location--within walking distance of the train station and center of Florence--was excellent. The hotel staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful is getting tourist information, tickets, reservations, etc. Breakfast was very good and plentiful.

    2 star hotel-not 3. The room was not decorated well. The television had only Italian channels--no BBC or CNN. And the room had an obvious place where the wallpaper was ripped. I thought the hotel was expensive for the type of room offered.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The hotel was in a very convenient location near both the train station and the tourist attractions. The buffet breakfast was very nice.

    The front desk staff was most unhelpful.....had to be tracked down to get room keys...not available when needed...

    Shower, actually, was perfect:) Everything else is on the good level.

    Not friendly staff. Poor breakfasts. No russian tv channel:)

    Walking distance to/from train station and proximity to the rest of the city. Hotel seemed newly renovated and very nicely done. Breakfast buffet was quite adequate including cappuccino.

    Mattresses were extremely hard.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Desk staff or arrival more than helful with private matters.Friendly and most courteous.Location is spot on,Right at railway station and a short walk to the landmarks and shopping.

    The balcony could not be used due to the sullage smells.Lighting was bad and the TV was very old.More pillows would have made it more comfortable.

  • Couple

    The location is good

    Too noisy can't sleep at night, the room is small

  • Single

    Clean and quiet hotel, excellent location near the main railway station; helpful staff. Bathroom was clean and bright; shower was great too. Fair breakfast. Pretty basic hotel, nothing spectacular, yet good value for the money.

    Single room was a bit tight; long by narrow format; hardwood floor without carpet (a bit noisy); the petite single bed kinda small for my taste; anyway, was not bad for two nights stay.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    This hotel is in a good location. If you happen to get a room that is either 08 or 09 you will be awake all night with the noise of the traffic. We unfortunately ended up in the room on the first floor and had bus headlights and traffic noise streaming in all night. We asked on numerous occasions to be changed and was always refused. The night shift Reception guy was rude and unhelpful.

  • Single

    Very good place if you want to visit the city

  • Single
    7.0

    The room was of good size and very clean.I had worries about the noise coming from the street, but the shutters were completley sound and light proof.

    The breakfast could be livened up with a few additions. The boiled eggs could have been served warm instead out of the fridge. some extra kinds of cheese would be nice.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Staff is helpful and friendly, hotel is visibly recently renovated, location is absolutely excellent: just two minute walk from the railway station and within ten-twerlwe minute walk from Duomo.

    In my view breakfast could be more diverse.

  • Older travelers

    An easy walk from the station but very quiet.
