Great location to see Firenze
Great location very near Il Duomo di Firenze and many restaurants. Can walk to most any of your sightseeing in the city from here. Hotel is clean, staff is very helpful and gracious. The beds and pillows a bit hard for our taste. There was a card for a pillow menu where possibly you could get different pillows, but we didn't check it out. There is a rooftop terrace restaurant where breakfast is served which has an awesome view of the Duomo. Breakfast includes the typical European fare + eggs/sausage/bacon and it was very tasty. They also offer a cocktail & appetizer as a treat one of your days from 4:30-11. Be sure to go prior to 22:00 as the appetizer is only served until 10 pm. There is a Conad grocery nearby on Via del Melarancio which is just out the door, go right, take the first right and then the first left. There is a refrigerator in the room to store perishables. Also just down the street are two sandwich shops which are open late. We were in 206 and 208 which were very quiet. Individual log ons for WIFI, but you don't have to type it in each time as with the other hotels on this trip to Italy.

Exceptional 10.0
This property was simply amazing. As a mid-twenty year old traveling for a few weeks, this hotel completely blew my expectations. The hotel was clean, and arguably had the best wine bar (with a picturesque view of the Duomo) in the entire city. The breakfast was great and the rooms/facilities were amazing as well. The rooms were a little hot unfortunately with the 90°F weather+, and it didn’t seem like the a/c worked too well. But, for the little amount of time I spent in the room, I could easily get over that fact. Would highly recommend. The location is perfect as well for shopping, sightseeing, and eating all around Florence, as everything is in close walking distance.

Great, clean hotel, close to everything!!
We loved this hotel!! It is clean, the staff was great, and it is within a 5 minute walk straight down from the train station...a perfect location. We took our luggage and mae it just fine. Many tours leave from the train station so it is very convenient. You can walk a very short distance to the Duomo, the Baptistry, and the Bell Tower. The Duomo can be see.n from the Terrace where you can eat breakfast or dinner. The breakfast was delicious with a huge assortment of food. We had a nice bathroom with a tub/shower combination and a window that opened overlooking a street. I loved seeing the view! There are restaurants and shops all along the street and if you want American fast food there are two McDonald's close by the train station! But with the fabulous Italian food, you won't want to go there! There are street vendors with souvenirs, but don't by from people who are walking, it is illegal. An officer saw me talking to one and ran him off...then he explained to me that he was not supposed to be selling there. You will love this area with all of the attractions, shopping, restaurants, and train station so close by. We were thrilled with our choice!!!

Very good 8.0
Great location - easy walk from station and to most tourist sites. Room a good size with kettle for tea/coffee making - though no milk provided. Reasonable amount of storage, there is a safe and a fridge. The bathroom was spacious and had a bath with shower over. Our room was on 7th floor with a view over part of the city. There is a bar on the terrace on the 6th floor which is also where a buffet style breakfast is served with hot and cold offerings. Unfortunately no other meals are served although there is a ground floor cafe which is also open to non guests. Staff were all friendly, helpful and professional with a good command of English. We would definitely stay again if we return to Florence.

great hotel in the middle of it all but quiet
This hotel is right in the middle of everything. 10 min to train station and 4 min to Duomo and amazing squares. The staff was so welcoming. The room is very spacious (especially for Europe) but a very small shower. Extra and good pillows and the bed was perfect to sleep on. The included breakfast is so great. Amazing coffee bar, scrambled eggs, meat and cheese spread, pastries and breads galore. Tons of sparkling and still water, juices and amazing coffee bar. Friendly and helpful bfast staff and a quaint room to eat in. Eventhough it's right in the action, the double pane windows are a blessing and block out all noises from the street. We slept like babies. The only complaint is the lack of A/C. It was a tiny heat wave but very stuffy in the room at night. We left the window open but it was noisy and mosquitos came in the room. You couldn't control the temperature of the A/C and it honestly felt like they shut it off after 10pm until the AM. Minus the lack of A/C, it was a wonderful hotel and we were so sad to leave. This truely is a wonderful boutique style hotel with a very friendly staff and great amenities. We would stay
