    What a gem for the price. Great location on the banks of the Arno, quiet area, close to center, helpful staff, ok breakfast, comfortable bed, large room, very clearn and air conditioner worked extremely well. Grab this place for you stay in florence if you can.

    The hotel staff were very helpful, the room clean and the bed very comfortable, also given choice of room either with river view , which could be noisy, but was not or an alternative. Ideal for walking in to Florence.

    The parking costs or garage costs very expensive, you should know this before you go! Also you should be made aware that during certain hours some roads are no entry, sat navs don't know this!

    The high speed wifi is great. Our room on the top floor is huge, which is brilliant. We like all the wooden furniture. This hotel is walking distance to many attraction. Many great restaurants and gelato in this area. Near train. All the staffs are very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again. Florence is our fave city.

    Breakfast is basic. But we are not complaining.

    Very close to the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and other sites. Hotel overall was nice.

    The shower was covered in mold and mildew. And, there was no lift to get to the hotel from the street or to the rooms.

    The tasteful, interesting decor and the peace and quiet. Excellent value for money.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The operator and staff are very friendly and most helpful. Our stay is full of a feeling like 'home'. And hotel offers best location, wonderful view, and very comfortable facilities for all visitors. Yes, it's only 2 stories high and only 10 guest rooms and there's no elevator, but the staff will carry your luggage up and down, and give you the most attentions. And above all, the price is right! In our next trip to Italy, we definitely will stay at this hotel again! This hotel has 3- star rating, but I'm happy to give a 'best' 4-star recommendation for practical travelers.

    Very friendly staff. Good value for money. Small and homely service.

    Noisy. Our room was right outside reception, the breakfast area and tv area. So there was lots of noise both in the evening and morning. Nowhere to sit really apart from in your room. When we stayed there, the weather was very poor but we still had to go out as there was not a reception area where you felt you could sit for any length of time.
