Solo trip
Great location, close to all the besy spots. Really close from the metro and central train station a short walk to the hotel about five minutes. Alot of great restaurant close by and a short pleasant walk to all area hotspots and tourist attractions. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpfull. However the bed and pillow were really uncomfortable to sleep on. The room was really small, bathroom was clean. The overall hotel condition is ok could use some refurbishing and better finishing. The insulation was not good you could clearly hear all the hallway noise even above foot steps. Would recommend the place for its great central location.

Great location.
Decent hotel in excellent location for station, sights etc. Lovely rooftop terrace which unfortunately did not open until day 4 of our 5 day trip and then restricted time. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Room/bathroom clean and made up well each day. Very comfortable bed. Walls are a bit thin however - my husband was kept awake listening to other guests through the wall after I had gone to sleep! A little noisy also from the street but no more than you would expect staying in such a densely populated tourist area. Staff friendly and attentive. Our fridge was faulty but was replaced as soon as we reported it. I would go back for proximity to everything we wanted to see/access to station for MotoGP at Mugello.

Great location
A short walk from train station and the Duomo and perfect for plenty of restaurants. All the sights are within 20 mins walk of the hotel.

Great location. Some very abrupt reception staff. However, porter was lovely. Breakfast was quite good but never enough tables. Only half a door on the shower cubicle! However, bathroom had obviously been done up quite recently, so it appeared to be unfinished!

Very good on a stop over
Stayed here for one night on a Tuscany tour. Very good location half-way between S.M.Novella train station and the Duomo (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore). Our room on 5th floor had amazing views. As this was the week before Christmas, it was cold outside, but we couldn't get the room to heat up very well at all even with the heating maxed up. This was ok for one night but would have been annoying if any longer. The breakfast was a bit chaotic at peak time, but food was ample and for the price it was a bonus. The staff were very friendly and courteous and there is secure bag storage, but on collecting our bags on the way to our train it took nearly 10 minutes to retrieve them, (which gave us a bit of concern getting to the train on time). Small things but as we were rushed they mattered. Any other day, perhaps not a problem. Bet it is amazing to stay here in summer as the balcony area is an additional room (but too cold in winter!). Also, tv signal was poor (no HDMI port on TV) if you like to connect up as I do, and wi-fi was terrible signal.
