5 minute walk from train station. WiFi only works at reception area.
Erwin, us3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Just okay hotel.
The hotel is in a very good location. The breakfast was okay. The bed was not so comfortable. There was a bar on the ground floor that played very loud music which can be heard in our room until past midnight so we were not really able to get much sleep. The room was fairly clean except the top of the cabinet was full of dust. A lot of restaurants around and the hotel is close to the train station.

Exceptional 10.0
Great ambience and fantastic location, literally two blocks from the train station at Santa Maria Novella. Cristina is very knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms have wonderful charm with working fans and air conditioning and double-pane windows to keep out the street noise. We enjoyed breakfast. Very close to San Lorenzo and the Duoma Piazza. The center of town is also nearby as is the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. For the price this hotel is a bargain.

Honest staff
All you need for a stay to sleep; very peaceful. Hotel is small but the room is all ok complete with all you need. Honest staff; i forgot my wallet in the bed (fell under or misplaced) with cards and money but when we came it is placed on our table . "thanks for that"
