          Cet hôtel n'est absolument pas digne d'un 4 étoiles! Il est vétuste et mal entretenu, il n'y a aucun confort et la propreté laisse fortement à désirer. A éviter à tout prix!

        • Older travelers

          A very nice looking hotel with good sized clean rooms.

          Front rooms too noisy; we had to be moved. Some staff appalling - Given the ok to swim in pool on day 1 (May 2010) but on day 2 told pool not cleaned since last year so not possible to use it until 01/06/2010. Similarly told roof top terrace would open in afternoon; later=01/06/2010. Also told we were booked for dinner; later told not open for hotel guests to book as outside booking taken for whole restaurant. No apologies for any of this and staff member shouted at my wife for asking questions re the above.

        • Family with children

          The location of the hotel is convenient to access to tourist places in the city, including the very good railways station.

          The hotel needs to be renovated to give a fresh look as a whole. The room where we stayed has a leak from the airconditioning which makes the wall next to the door constant wet.

        • Family with children

          Great central location few minutes walk from key attractions and main shopping area, two minutes from the main rail station, great room, nice friendly staff, garden area with pool in the middle of the city, perfect rooftop terrace with excellent view of the whole of Florence, very large room over two floors (115) and a private balcony, two bathrooms and a nice updated quality. We will certainly be using it again!

          Florece driving is difficult, but this is a problem for all central hotels and not just this one. Closest garage was 27 euro pr day. City tax 4 euro pr person pr day is an annoying cash-only payment on the last day, but again it's the same all over Florence...

        • Older travelers

          The staff were very helpful and the location is excellent. Within walking distance to train and near to major sites.

          The rooms are a bit tired, when you looked up the ceilings are terrible. Unfortunately our bathroom overnight developed the most putrid septic smell. When we booked out we told them about it and they did take off 15% from the bill, but really it was very poor. We stayed in another hotel and did not have this problem. They tried to tell us it was like it over the city as the city is very old, but this is clearly not true.
