Editorial review:

This hotel has a tranquil location in the middle of Florence that wins praise from guests. Some rooms have views of the Cupola. The rooms are spacious and the staff is amicable. It's not absolutely outstanding, but it's not minimalist, either.

  • Great location in a center - Rooftop had a lounge - Great view - Parking (quite expensive)
  • Wonderful hotel - Positioned near the duomo - Service was superb - Lobby is beautiful

          the ubication

          Extremely old the furniture, it definitely doesn´t suit with a four star hotel

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          Located in center of city

          Cold water in shower and we had to complain to get hot water and even next day it was gone again. Charming roof top bar was closed even that it was nice weather, only one it was open during our stay. Very disappointing

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Great location near the San Lorenzo market, midway between the train station and the Duomo. Lobby and breakfast room were nice, staff friendly and ready to help.

          Hallways and room were in need of serious maintenance. Dirty carpets, poor lighting. Room had a sitting room on the main entry level, then a loft where the bed and bathroom were located, and going up and down the stairs constantly was a pain.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Friendly staff. Fronts desk staff was great. Convenient location.

          Room was clean, but very dated. Bathroom was terrible, the ac barely worked and the bed was like rock.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          We loved the decor, the breakfast and it's close proximity to the centre of Florence.

          Bed was very firm. Wifi reception very poor.

        • Couple
          9.2

          It is only 3-4 min by walking distance from SMN train staion. Very central, clean and worthy hotel Room no:512 ( double room:) has own terrace and u can have lovelly romantic time there.

          There is no wi-fi in rooms. and 12,50 E breakfast / night is expensive. But there are many bars around to have breakfast with lower budget

        • Couple
          9.2

          The hotel was situated very closely to the Santa Maria Novella train station and was also very close to the other attraction points, so everything was reachable by foot in a few minutes walk. The design of the hotel was really something special and it made you feel like stepping back on time. The view from our room was lovely, as we could see the dome of the Basilica of San Lorenzo.

          We needed to get connected to Internet a couple of times to check our emails and do other type of work, but the connection was really poor, and it got disconnected all the time in the lobby. Other than this, the stay in this hotel was perfect!

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Location! Friendly staff who helped book tickets for museums and tours.

          Breakfast, not to my standards, expensive if not booked with room price. A hotel that should be renovated to become a 4 star hotel which they are said to be.

        • Couple
          6.6

          Great location.

          I felt the staff was kind of snooty and rude towarfs me cause we were young and spoke english. There was a spider in our room on the ceilingabove the bed. I dont believe a hotel that charges this much should have bugs in the room. They did let us leave our bags for the day when we were leaving which was nice however when we went back to get the bags they made it seem as if we were being rude by asking for them. Front desk agents could use some more training. I have been one so I understand the job. However all of the other staff was amazing.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Comfortable bed and great location!

          Breakfast was too expensive. Internet was hit and miss - sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.
