Very good 8.0
Excellent location but needs to improve breakfast
Stayed at the property for 4 nights. Everything was good other than the breakfast. They could improve on the breakfast. Location is excellent. The air in the lobby is a bit stale, needs some fresh air or some fragrant diffuser.

Exceptional 10.0
Good for a 2 night city break.
Excellent room size with a comfy bed but only mirror was in the bathroom, difficult when there is 2 of you getting ready. Good size TV, excellent shower and great aircon. The check in was easy and they went out of their way to meet our requests as we were attending a wedding. The breakfast was the only let down. Limited options with a basic set up. The hotel is in a square near the train station. We found it well situated and quite at night. Great for a couple of nights in Florence.
