a solid 7/10
This hotel was nice, but nothing extraordinary. The bed was not comfortable at all, and the bathroom was so tiny it was hard to use. The service was good, with everyone at the desk very nice. But it’s annoying that no one can check in until after 2pm, especially when other hotels let you do so. It was also pretty loud with a lot of bars lining this street and thin walls. Wasn’t a big issue for us, but could be for others.

Hotel and room were beautiful. It’s located across the river but still a close walk to everything. The staff were fantastic. I would stay here again next time I go to Florence.

Highly recommended
Convenient location, within walking distance from city centre. Rooms were spacious, clean, with a modern, minimalist design. Comfortable, firm beds with crisp sheets. The biggest suite that our friends stayed in (king bed + twins) was huge and had murals on the ceilings, which was an unforgettable highlight. Only downside was the wifi reception, which was a bit sketchy. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Florence.

Beautiful place and great location
Super friendly staff and really helpful. The room was really clean and very well maintained. Great location, easily walkable to everywhere. Some noisy guests with children, but the hotel cannot be blamed for that. Very secure. Will definitely stay again if in Florence.
Oliver, in3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Roxy was lovely and super friendly, but can’t say as much for the other lady at the front desk. The WiFi was spotty for most of the time. The room was pretty but bathroom needed repairs, as the shower was rusted and could no longer switch back and forth from handheld to fixed shower heads. Also, the sink was coming away from the wall. Location was excellent and a short walk from train station, rental cars, and all the main activities of interest. Overall, our experience was fine because we were on our honeymoon and these were all little thing that didn’t really matter, but we definitely won’t stay here again if we ever come back to Florence.

Nice place with a few improvements needed.
The stay was very nice. It was in a quieter part of town so that was great. Also there were small spots to eat off the beaten path which was amazing. If we didnt stay here we wouldn't have found them. The service in general was great, was always greeted with a smiling face. That was great! The only improvements that I would recommend is improving the quality of the furniture and some how sound proofing the room. We could literally hear everything around us. I know it sounds not picky but at one point we could hear conversations in the room next to us and then a baby crying from another room. Not a deal breaker but def take into account. As for the furniture, it was just very low grade. Table had a terrible wobble. Our room door would only shut if you slammed it, which isnt terrible until you go to catch the sunrise over the city but your wife stays behind, then you have to slam the door coming back in. Was actually a little funny. But on a serious note, we realized our door didnt latch a few times... like anyone could have just pushed it open. Overall I would recommend this place to stay. We loved the location! Also the staff was so friendly and helpful.
