Positive Reviews

Central but peaceful location

Florence has plenty of accommodation nearer the heart of the city than this hotel. A few guests reflected that they would have preferred to stay closer to the river where more sights are on the doorstep. However, if you like the added tranquility of being a little off the beaten track and you're happy to explore charming Florence on foot you'll find most of the sights are within 30-minutes' walk. Alternatively, buses for downtown stop nearby.

Comfortable and clean with spacious bathrooms

Most visitors commented on the cleanliness of the hotel as being of a good standard or even spotless; it helped make for a comfortable stay for many as did the generously-sized bathrooms.

Friendly, helpful staff

Reviewers were mostly positive about the personnel at the hotel describing them as friendly and helpful and ready to make suggestions or answer travelers' queries.

Negative Reviews

Reports of air-conditioning and Wi-Fi issues

It can be down to personal taste, but some guests reported occasional problems with the air-conditioning in their rooms being too noisy, too strong or too weak. The free Wi-Fi caused occasional headaches for some guests who found it slow or unreliable.

Mixed views over breakfast

In summer you can have breakfast outside in the garden terrace, which many visitors enjoyed. Nevertheless, there were some guests who reported a lack of eggs on the menu and felt the quality of the breakfast was average. Breakfast service personnel were, however, described as friendly and efficient.

Traffic noise disturbed some

Hotels outside Florence's central car control zone, like this one, can be exposed to a bit of traffic noise as some guests reported when their sleep was disturbed in the mornings. Light sleepers might therefore prefer a room not facing the road.
