Positive Reviews

Strategic location

The central location means guests can access the city and its surroundings quiet easily. They also like that the Firenze Santa Maria Station is within a five-minute walk of the hotel, making it a breeze to get to the outlying attractions in a jiffy. Shopping centres, churches and monuments are also in close proximity to the hotel as well, making this location a difficult one to beat.

Family-owned accommodation

The owners of the hotel take heaps of pride in the running of this establishment. Guests say the strong family values mean they are treated as friends from the moment they arrive. They feel comfortable, and soon find they are relaxed and ready to explore what this great city has to offer.

Awesome rooms

Both the rooms and apartments are reported to be lovely and spacious. Guests find them charming to say the least, but also well cleaned and meticulously well looked after.

Negative Reviews

Open staircase

Some of the rooms have a steep staircase leading to an additional bedroom. Many guests complain that it's a struggle to get their heavy luggage up to the room, and had they known about the stairs, they would have requested an alternative room.

Pay for kitchen utensils?

Almost all visitors are a little taken aback that they have to pay extra if they want to make use of the kitchen facilities in their rooms. Most think this should be a basic inclusion in the price of the room.
