Poor 2.0
Worst service ever
Me and my family was meant to stay at this hotel for 3 nights, unfortunately the card details were wrong but the hotel never contact me to let me know there was an error with the card so instead they cancelled the reservation without letting me know and for our surprise when we got to the hotel the staff told us he has no room for us. Also she was really really rude and raised her voice to us. Worst service ever!

Exceptional 10.0
We loved this place!! :) Paul (front desk) was so nice and very helpful with the check-in. Location is great and within walking distance to the Dome, close to shopping and dining. It was a very nice hotel, excellent service and a great complimentary breakfast buffet. Easy access to public transportation that would take you anywhere in Florence.

Good 6.0
Not great
The hotel was very minimal and the receptionist was pretty rude. WiFi isnt free, storing luggage cost a fee, rooms were cold because You couldn’t control it from your room. Though the decor was kind of cute, borderline tacky they literally charge you for everything which was what ruined our experience.

Good 6.0
For the price it was fine. Wi-Fi is not free. Need to pay for it. Area was alright. Near a nice piazza, but one day there were people sitting outside gambling the whole day.

Fair 4.0
Outdated and just not comfortable. Needs major update. Very expensive then pay for Wifi. Bed is a mattress on frame, no springs; very uncomfortable. Just no value for the money spent.

Ottimo Hotel per qualità/prezzo
Hotel situato in una posizione strategica di Firenze, da cui a piedi si può raggiungere tranquillamente la stazione dei treni e tutte le attrazioni principali della città. Camere molto calde e accoglienti, alcuni dettagli lo renderebbero ancora meglio (wifi funzionante, organizzazione lievemente migliore) ma in generale sicuramente un ottimo hotel. Consigliato per turisti.
