          The location was great, very close to the train station but also to the main tourist sites. The room was bright and clean with all necessary amenities. Wifi was available in the common areas and they had a system for leaving your luggage after checking out/

          Cristina (at the reception) was absolutely wonderful. She made us feel very welcome; as soon as we arrived she provided us with a map and marked on it all the major attractions, and even recommended a lovely walk up to P-le Michelangioli. She always had a smile and a nice greeting, and the rest of the staff was equally graceful. The room was extraordinarily large, sparkly clean, and nicely furnished for Italy -- 5 people could have easily slept there, and there were just two of us. The hotel location is perfect -- 5 minutes walking to most attractions. Highly recommended.

          It's not the hotel's fault in any way -- but the bar nearby has loud live music late in the night (past midnight). I use earplugs routinely and my husband was too tired to mind it, but more sensitive folks might want to take extra precautions.

          Wifi, really friendly staff, location, the room was also really big, the gelateria across the street was awesome.

          The bed was reallly hard I couldnt sleep and the hotel was up a flight of stairs, not good for heavy luggages. but the guy at the reception actually helped us half the way!

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Room was effective for ours needs although basic. Didn't see much of staff, but the day we checked in we were late for the cut off time. I called ahead and a staff member stayed an extra hour and met us so we good get checked in. Good service.

          If you walk away from the city center from the hotel the neighborhood seems to decline pretty rapidly. OK if you remember which way to walk at night.

        • Single
          5.8

          The hotel was good value for money overall. It had the same quality and a comfort as a more expensive hostel, and perfect for a 1 night stop-over. I booked a single room with shared facilites, however got given a triple room with en suite bathroom upon checking in.

          Staff were only at reception a few hours a day - usually when they knew people were checking-in, so weren't around all the time for queries.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          The staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. Our room was cleaned daily with change of bed linen and towels. Location is superb, very good value for money.

          The lighting in the rooms could have been better.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          location and set up was good. Think they cold have offered complimentary coffee in am or at least have coffeee pots in room.Staff very friendly and helpful. Also nice and clean.Would recommend

        • Couple
          7.8

          Very close to the train station and the city center. Good price but didn't include breakfast.

          We stayed only one night, so there are not much to say. Just that our room (number 1) was facing part of the piazza S. M. Novella, however it was exactly where the breakfast room was (difficult to sleep after 07.30 A.M.).

        • Couple
          6.2

          The location, room was reasonable with en-suite. Freshly made coffee for breakfast.

          Our room was directly over a wine bar which had live music till late. street noise could be heard, noisy stay. Breakfast was basic continental.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Nice hotel and good location for the city trip

        • Group of friends
          3.2

          I liked the convenience to Santa Maria Novella train station and the main attractions to Florence.

          The staff was rude, the room was very uncomfortable, rock hard mattresses, the towels were cut up bed sheets (not kidding). No breakfast included since we had 4 people which seemed unfair. The view was a terrace with old furniture, dead plants and an alley. The front desk staff was rude (which was unusual for any place we stayed in Italy) and the room was on large box with 4 beds low to the floor, a ceiling fan that didn't work, blown out bulbs in two lamps, a bathroom that was about 2 feet across and more of an alleyway than a bathroom. We had so many better experiences in hotels in Europe, and really are pretty easygoing travelers so if we are complaining, then it really has to be a horrible place to stay

        • Couple
          9.2

          Very kind and flexible staff. Air conditioned rooms. A place to leave the luggages at the last day. The Hotel is in the center of Florence, 5-10 minutes walk from everywhere.

        • Family with children

          bed in double rooms are not convenient

        • Group of friends
          5.4

          good location

          bed not comfortable, room a bit noisy

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          The value for money was fantastic and so was the location. The staff were very friendly as well. Highly reccommended!

          The very early checkout, but even then the hotel let us check out and keep our bags in a deposit area where we could then still look around bag free!
