Fair 4.0
Nice hotel horrible beds
Was assigned a room with a sofa chair bed I had chosen 2 beds Changed room a small bed was added to the room the other bed was awful the bed my wife and I slept it was horrible Breakfast so so service awful

Poor 2.0
Needs to Lift Its Game
Room and bathroom are tiny, of modern design but devoid of functionality. Service in relation to parking was both misleading and inadequate, causing us 3hrs of inconvenience finding off-site secure parking for 20 euros/day when the hotel has parking for 24 euros, but neglected to mention it to us. Breakfast offering and service were woeful - for over 30 minutes there were no eggs and bacon.

Overall Good stay
The hotel lobby was amazing. Breakfast was great! Room had some minor things that you can tell were from lack of maintenance. Exhaust fan in bathroom didn't work which was the reason the paint on the ceiling was peeling in the bathroom. Toilet seat was loose and falling off. Bed was hard as crap but that is just Italian beds. Balcony was nice and private. Closet space was adequate and TV was great. Wifi wasn't bad either. Would stay their again. Getting to the hotel was very easy and parking in their underground parking garage was a bit steep at 24 euros per night.

Great hotel!
Great hotel! The room was perfect and the staff was nice. They took care of a special request I did because we were on honeymoon. Loved it!

Best Florence experiment in 2 days
Gabriel at the front desk was one of the most helpful person ever. My experience in Florence because of his suggestions, was the best I had. He took the time to draw on the map, must see sites as well as local/hidden gems. I'm grateful I encounter him at the hotel with his magnifencent customer service.

Convenient location, a couple issues
Conveniently located close to the Statue of David and the Duomo. Easy to find our way back once we got to the Duomo. The people were helpful. Phenomenal recommendation from the staff for dinner the first night. Couple of lows, air conditioning wasn't very effective our room was hot and we had an issue w two reservations that we are still working on with the hotel tried somewhat to help us. But at the moment paid for a second room we didn't use
