Beautiful hotel in Florence. It's close to the train station in a quiet area. It's within walking distance to the piazzas, but it's a little bit of a walk, maybe an extra 10 mins walk.
Rooms are large, clean and ornate.
Great hotel especially for the price.
If it wasn't for the staff and friendly manager I would have went completely nuts.
We were there on our honeymoon and having read the reviews and seen the photos we were quite excited. But sadly, upon our arrival to room 33, our dreams were shattered.
A shambles of a room that you wouldn't even give to your dog. I am six foot 5 and the door is about six foot 2. Also it must be about 12 feet wide. The bed was a fold down bed and the slanty beams didn't help the 8 times I hit my head. Also the chap in room 34, he had issues as I could hear all of em in the toilet. Soundproof walls? Sadly not.
We then moved to room 25, which was like trading in a skoda fabia and getting a 5 series BMW. Sadly no balcony, fireplace as stated that the rooms have. The bed was TERRIBLE, being a newly wed couple, sadly the only thing we were doing was sleeping!! It was a great size however very creaky and noisy.
Breakfast was standard but good enough. Location was great , a two minute walk to the centre and 5 minutes from the train station.
No lift sadly means that if you don't go to the gym regularly, carrying your cases is an issue, although when staff are about, they gladly help you.
Overall, I was extremely disappointed with the hotel as the room 33 was just a complete insult to put us in. I heard problems from many other guests and also the fact that there is no English BBC channel on the TV, despite the hotel insisting there is.
The staff were great, especially Mr Josev.

"A great location, helpful staff, comfortable rooms"
I have already recommended this hotel to some friends since it's location, staff and rooms are great, and having the café right there is amazing. Also the hotel is within easy walking distance of both the train station, lots of restaurants and also the many attractions of Florence. I recommend it highly!
Alberto on the front desk was superb to say the least, very welcoming and nothing is to much trouble should you require help. Anastasia and Raffarella also on front desk offered a great deal of help to my wife in contacting a store in Sienna with regard to a purchase. They ensured that the queary was dealt with quickly, then sorted out the problem themselves by getting in the hotel housekeeper. Train and bus schedules were printed off for us, as well as sites to see and tour booking. The Hotel is a beautiful Centuries old Building and is very well looked after. Rooms are superb, very well furnished and the bathroom spotless. The Hotel bar is very well stocked and prices that were cheaper than we thought they would be. Dining room is very good but only serves breakfast. However, the breakfast was first class, staff very attentive but without being at your table every second. Very Highly Recommended. We would stay there again without hesitation.
The staff were superb offering loads of advice regarding tours, restaurants and sites. A really comfortable hotel located just off centre but within 10 minds walking distance of all attractions. Great breakfast, comfortable and informal lounges that are lovely to relax in at any time of day or night. We had a great 6 night stay and plan to return.
