          Good loaction and service.

          Small room and breakfast could be better.

          10.0

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, quiet, clean and spacious. The location is great - a 5 minute walk from the main train station and the Duomo. Overall, I'd recommend it!

          perfect location, no frills, but quality

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The staff were very helpful. The location was perfect to enjoy Florence. Our room was small but just fine for our stay of four days. The breakfast buffet was good and offered many choices. We would defiantly stay there again.

        • Couple
          4.6

          Location of hotel is very near train station. Good for people with alot of luggages and those who wants to travel outwards.

          Area around hotel seems unsafe, and entrance is located in a street which more resembles a back alley instead? Internet connection is almost non-existent, and staff doesn't seem concerned at all when you tell them abt the poor connection. It seems like what other reviewers say are true, that Internet connection is what they promise on, but seems like it's almost non-existent. Hanged the "do not disturb" sign when we were away, as we had many shopping bags and cash in the room and don't feel secure for staff to come in. But horrors to fond out they came in anyway to tidy when we were away!! Totally shocked to the max, first encounter in my life! I believe this is the worst thing that happened in the trip. For the price that was paid, honestly nothing good came out of it. Would had expected better, but sadly...

          Near the main train station, walking distance to downtown

        • Couple
          4.2

          The location was good close to the station.

          We read the comments in Booked.net before booking this hotel. Unfortunately the reviews did not correspond the reality. The room was cold, small, basic furnished and not that clean. The breakfast was the poorest that we have ever experienced. We even wanted to look for some other hotel to stay the second day.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The staffs. They are so kind.

          The room was very noisy, I couldn't sleep all the night for the voice from the street.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Walk from station and all of the city. Helpful staff. Warm.

          8.8

          The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, breakfast was good. If you travel by train, hotel is just 5 minutes walk from the main train station, great location.

          Wifi signals were bad, you have to chase it all around the room. Walls are thin.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The staff were very helpful and they provided a lovely breakfast. The room was clean and the en-suite had a great shower.

          The room wasn't that well laid out and we our window looked into a central work area.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Helpful, friendly staff. great location. Breakfast was great.

          Wifi was slow, hot water takes a while heat up.
