        The room was small but for one night not bad, small tv, the door of the bathroom hits the bidet if you try to open it all the way. Overall if you are looking for a place just to crash then its fine.

        The cleaness of the room and the reasonable price. The staff was also friendly and willing to help. However, there was only one attendent at the afternoon and evening hours.

        The location is poor. far from Florence with poor public transportation and long driving. Not even one restaurant in the neighborhood.

        Large mrdern room and good breakfast

        Night shift women on duty is useless and lazy! The room smells like toilet, air conditioning not enought to cool it without opening the window at night. Location is far away from city, nothing eally around the place. If you drive you would be better off staying somewhere else

        The hotel has nothing special.... Just the price is attractive.

        The staff are allways in bad mood and not willing to help the guests. There are many mosquitos in the room.

        Staff was gentle and the breakfast was good.

        To be honest, I only liked the room, mostly the bed was comfortable.

        Location was awful, one hour to Firenze center, 12 tram stations, then change and around 6 bus stops, bus comes twice an hour. Unacceptable for 4star rated hotel not to have a restaurant, closest was 2km away, by foot. Hotel not in Firenze, but in Scandici, a suburb. Internet costs 7eur per hour.

        Very good breakfast, indoor parking without charge.

        The view from the room, long distance from Firenze and low water pressure and flow in the bath tube.
