Individual guest reviews

  • Great view from roof terrace, this hotel is centrally located in Florence's Centro Storico, right near all the main sights and breakfast is just okay and nothing to write home about. For this price i can't imagine a person could do better, the lobby is beautiful and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Rooms are very nice.

    The furniture is worn, the American sounding receptionist is unhelpful, defensive and borderline rude, the gym cost 10 euro per visit, is too expensive.

  • Free wifi, great central location, hotel was comfortable and the price was really good for this period. The staff were very friendly, bathroom was fine and the breakfast buffet was excellent and had a wide selection of foods that looked fresh.

    The room was sort of empty as far as the decoration is concerned and at 120 Euros plus bed tax of 4 Euros per person per night, is expensive for delivers.
