Excellent Position
An excellent choice for those to see Portofino but are put off by the crowds and cost of staying in Portofino. The hotel is on a busy road but the quality of the double glazing and in particular the air conditioning negate this.

Great experience.
Great hotel for business trip. Rooms are a bit small - but very clean, good service and pleasant staying. Location is the best in Florence.

Poor1.0 / 5
Absolute con. Beware
We booked the 'deluxe double', which boasted a beautiful balcony overlooking the river Arno. We paid £175 a night, and during the booking process, I requested a room on the highest floor, which coincidentally were rooms with a balcony. When we arrived, we were shown to our room and it was NOTHING like the pictures for the 'deluxe double'. We received a box-sized room. The bathroom is dated and has worn out marks everywhere.There is no balcony!!!!!!! The room is on the side of the building so you get a 'so-called' view of the river. I was outraged and went downstairs to show the pictures they advertise and what the reality is. The manager was so rude- she said I ordered a 'deluxe double' and that's what I got. She said that only 3 rooms look like the actual picture on the website. I said, 'you haven't even stated that on the website!'. She wouldn't accept responsibility at all and kept saying I'm not understanding. It's evil to put pictures offering something and then delivering something else. She then attempted to show us another room which was even worse than the one we were given!!!!! * no toast making facility at breakfast and the muesli was stale. * the lift was out of order for the majority of the time. * hotel staff do not greet anyone when walking in and out of the hotel. * the 'double deluxe' room we had consisted of two twin beds pushed together. * no privacy in the bathroom as the windows have no blinds. * nothing 'deluxe' about the room.

Very small room size, expensive upgrade for view
Good location however rooms are extremely small. Unless you pay for expensive upgrades the rooms are very cramped and no view. It is also a little far from the Duomo and takes 15-20 minutes to walk up. Breakfast is mediocre with no vegetarian options. Service is full of lip service and lacks substance.
