Positive Reviews

An ideal location for sightseeing

Travellers often comment on the convenience of the hotel's location, noting that most of the main historic sights and cultural attractions are about ten minutes away on foot, and some, including the famous Duomo, are even closer. The neighbourhood is packed with places to eat as well as practical amenities such as shops and laundromats. Guests travelling by rail are particularly pleased to find the main station is about five minutes from the hotel on foot.

Friendly, helpful personnel

The staff are widely described as friendly, professional, and pleased to share their knowledge of the area with new arrivals. The considerable efforts of the housekeeping staff are also much appreciated.

A good start to the day

Travellers enjoy the traditional Italian breakfast buffet on offer each morning, and often comment that the dining room opens onto a lovely terrace.

Negative Reviews

Smallish, simple rooms

Though many guests appreciate the 16th century property's old world charm, a good many of the rooms are described as a bit small, dim, or modestly furnished for their price point.

Bring a pair of ear plugs

Guests note that the hotel's proximity to Piazza di Santa Maria Novella and the train station does have a downside, in the form of heavy pedestrian traffic, including some very devoted buskers. Early morning delivery trucks and the great number of birds on the rooftops have also disturbed light sleepers.
