Fabulous 8.8 From 249 reviews

Poor 2.0
Poor service lady in restaurant
Very near train station and a supermarket, close to attractions. Front desk staff is helpful and friendly. Rooms and are old and basic but acceptable. Bathrooms are ok. No kettle, tea or coffee. Weak wifi signal, no socket (although one in bathroom), I unplugged the fragrance but the socket was facing closely to the desk, I wouldn't be able to plug in without an angled adapter. Breakfast has very limited varieties. Since it came with room it is fair to say OK. The whole district is hotels so there are choices. The unpleasant and rude lady in restaurant treated you worse than refugees. The croissants were buffet early in the morning but assigned to one per each person after a certain time. My sister came in at the border time, only one croissant was left in the tray and someone else wanted it, my sister kindly let the other guest take it. When I came down, it was the time to get one per person, I asked the lady to give one to my sister, she said my sister had already had one, I told her no because she let somebody get it. The rude lady brought one out and dropped the plate on my sister's plate loudly. The other morning I was given a plain croissant and I asked to change one with cream, the lady said no more but she gave the cream to another table. This woman is the only staff in charge of the restaurant, she has an attitude and provides very poor service.

Exceptional 10.0
What sets this hotel apart from others is the service! From checking in to checking out the staff was wonderful, friendly, and always willing to help. Set up tours, provided directions, and even arranged to provide dinner one late night for us. Can’t thank Elis and Ronnie enough for all their help in making Florence a great visit. Make sure to have Marco make you his drink of the day! Pros: • location (5 minutes from main train station, Santa Maria), easy walking distance to all main attractions, restaurants, grocery store, cafes, etc. • restaurant tied to hotel: free breakfast every morning, typical European breakfast (cheese, meat, pastries, etc.) However, any coffee drink you want (espressos, café latte, etc.) Serves sandwiches and awesome lasagna General: • Room was spacious for European hotel and we enjoyed sitting on the little terrace drinking wine. Toiletries provided as well as safe and hair dryer. Older hotel, but again we enjoy the old world feel. Con: • Can be a little noisy at times, especially on the weekend, but the white noise machine and soundproof windows help quite a bit. This hotel is not the Ritz Carlton, but in my opinion, you can’t put a price on good and friendly service. Loved this hotel and staff! Highly recommend and will stay here again.

Very good 8.0
It was a great location, clean, and staff were very friendly. The one thing was you couldn’t control the ac in the room. It was hot most of the time. We read reviews about this prior to booking and thought since it was summer people were just complaining. We went in October which isn’t as hot and we experienced exactly what we read. The safe lock wasnt working, it even locked itself with our items inside and had to call for assistance. That was pretty much it. But great location and an okay breakfast, some of the staff were rude. We went inside and one of them didn’t even greet us just rudely ask us for our hotel room number as if we were thre stealing food, when we were staying there.

Definitely will go back again
This hotel is great. The location is right next to the Santa Marie Novella train station so you can walk it easily. The front desk is nice and the staff are great and even walk you to your room. As with all Italy hotel the bed was hard but not as bad as others and the A/C is not great. We opened a window which helped but then you have to be careful of mosquitoes. But overall the room was great with an overlarge room and bathroom with shower and spa tub. The breakfast was wonderful with a large selection of Italian foods: croissants, cereal, juices, salamis, boiled eggs, coffee and American breakfast of pancakes and eggs but there is an additional charge for them.

Good 6.0
I stayed in a single room in that hôtel for 2 night. The hôtel was clean. Breakfast was good. Reception personnel were very friedly and helpful. They speak perfect english. They kept my luggage for me for few hours after i had checked out. Wifi was good. The Hôtel is in a very good location. Its 2 min walk to train station. The only downfall is that the bed was super uncomfortable. I could not sleep for those 2 nights. I asked To change room but the receptionist said that the hôtel was full. I Will go back there again only if they change mattresses.
