            • Family with children
              7.8

              Hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

              Room was half flight of stairs up/down from elevator level - as a result had to lug suitcases up and down. Bathroom was too small/inadequate for a triple room at these prices.

            • Couple
              6.2

              - Location is very good - Room and bed are nice - Bathroom is well equipped with amenities.

              - hotel was having some kind of construction behind our room. It gave noises and bad view. Luckily, we had to wake up early for travel so it was not that bad. - internet costs 6 euro per day which is quite expensive but i guess it's normal price in a city like Florence.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              The location is very good.

              Staff is not very friendly. Air condition is not working and the room. Breakfast is poor. Lightning is poor in room and corridores. Sachet Hair shampoo, little amount and bad quality.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              clean, quiet, comfortable

              no view, other than in "superior" rooms

            • Couple
              8.8

              As it was our honeymoon trip to Florence and reception gave us a room overlooking the square. very stunning. We also liked the cleaness of the hotel room. Staffs were very kind and helpful to sort out our mosquito problems in the middle of the night.

              Our double bed was a two single bed pushed together with wheels below, it moved away when we snuggled close to each other.

            • Group of friends
              6.4

              Very convenient location Nice breakfast

              Our room was very dark at night, there is not enough light to read by or for a woman to apply makeup. The computer that was there for the convenience of the guests never worked for the 4 nights we were there. It was inconvenient. .

            • Single
              8.2

              Hotel is 5 min walk from the train station and the Duomo. Has AC, good size bathroom, fairly comfy beds. Rooms are smaller, but good for 2 people. Location is absolutely perfect if arriving by train and getting around city on foot.

              Breakfast room is small.

            • Couple
              7.0

              The location was good, it was modern looking and clean.

              The rooms have very dim lighting and the internet was far too expensive (5 euro an hour compared to 1 euro throughout the city)

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Stayed in order to go to the gp at mugello

              Not much choice at breakfast but it was ok

            • Couple
              8.2

              We stayed here and would stay here again due to the location and price. We were on a budget and also wanted to have easy access to the train station and in walking distance to the sights It was also clean which was very important as well to us.

              The only thing was that the shower was tiny but it didn't bother us that much.

            • Couple
              9.2

              Great location! Everything is just walking distance from the hotel. Hotel has a great look - lots of colors and youthful atmosphere.

            • Couple
              6.6

              I love the location the best! and all the staffs are very helpfull!

              The ceiling of the bathroom are mouldy, felt very disgusted. And the lights are not bright enough, rooms and corridors are too dark.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              Very comfortable, staff helpful,near centre of Florence and all attractions.

            • Couple
              6.2

              The location to the train station and the Ponte Vecchio was good. The free breakfast was good.

              The air conditioner was broken and they couldn't fix it. The room was very dark without the option for much lighting. Someone came into our room and tried to make up our bed on our check out date despite us not having left yet.

            • Couple
              6.6

              Good location for sm novella station and city walk.

              In the room there was a strange smell and lights were too less to see even switches
