                    • In a good location, nice park in front and the hotel is really worth the money. Staff is very helpfull and charming, the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are new, fabulous wine at prices to suit all pockets.

                      Well stocked mini bar and not expensive, old towels, the beds weren't great. The breakfast is very poor indeed.

                    • Great location in Florence, across from a very nice park and in a very quiet street. S a very clean hotel, reasonable price and well within walking distance of all the sights and restaurants. Staff is friendly and helpful, attentive the receptionists simply and effectively help tourists. Room is large enough.

                      The wifi service was comically expensive for a 3 hour period, the Continental breakfast was not good.

                    • The location was perfect, hotel room was clean and very happy about the price we paid for. The staff were exceptional, the bathroom was modern and spacious, also the breakfast provided was excellent.

                      Poor customer service and very sad that the owner was in vacation and no one could give us answers. I am not sure the mosquitoes were getting in because the windows were closed.

                    • The location was good, the pizzeria across the street was awesome and the Hotel Donatello was really excellent. The price was great, staff were helpful and the receptionist was helpfull. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was nice.

                      The place is very noisy and service cannot get any worse. Bed is too hard.

                      Limited choices, very Rude attitude from the senior receptionist.
