Positive Reviews

Amazing views from the roof

Guests tend to fall in love with the cute little terrace area on the hotel's rooftop, as it offers some truly great views of the city. Sitting up there with a drink in hand at evening time, looking out over the Duomo as the sun sets is, reviewers note, a treat that never gets dull.

City-centre location is great for sightseeing

Travellers are consistently impressed with this property's handy central location. Being in the heart of the action, they say, makes getting around a breeze, as everything worth seeing, including the Duomo, Bargello museum, Piazza della Signoria, and Uffizi Gallery are all just an easy stroll away. Having loads of eateries in very close proximity is also deemed a massive plus point.

Very accommodating staff

Reviews report nothing but good things about the hotel's genial and enthusiastic staff members. They are, impressed visitors remark, incredibly obliging and always very keen to ensure guests see the best their city has to offer. Their local knowledge and earnest recommendations are very much appreciated.

Negative Reviews

Stairs are a challenge

Many visitors lament the fact that there's no lift at this property, as the stairs within are many and plentiful. Reviewers suggest it may not be a good option for elderly visitors as the individual steps are themselves quite high.

Sound insulation doesn't cut it

It is noted that noise generated on and off the premises can often be loud enough to disturb stays. Guests say it's common to hear the sound of drunken revellers on the street below on weekends, and to hear noise made by guests in neighbouring rooms at all times of the day and night.

Rooms not very spacious

A few visitors to the hotel have noted that their rooms were too small or cramped. They were also disappointed about the small showers that did not allow easy movement and instead frustrated them.
