From the time we checked in to the departure date, this hotel checks out all the boxes. Front office staff, especially Jenny, are all outstanding and efficiently respond to queries on timely basis. Excellent spread at breakfast with freshly baked buns! Room was large/spacious. You need to take a bus if you wish to go to railway station, but the bus stops only a few mins from the hotel. The hotel itself is an older structure but looks very well maintained. Especially enjoyed the courtyard and the peace and tranquility it offered. Many bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Will surely stay here again!

Well-kept and well-sized room in good location”

We had read mixed reviews of the Hotel but our experience was thoroughly positive. The staff were very helpful from the minute we arrived, our room was clean and well-sized to larger than some other more expensive hotels (particularly compared to our Roma hotel). Bathroom was clean and had all the needful, and breakfast too was very adequate (juice, yogurt, croissant with butter and jam options etc). You can also order coffee at cost. Some may find issue that the hotel wifi is only active in the common areas but as our room was downstairs we had some connectivity inside as well. The hotel is located close to the Florence market and a very easy walk to the duomo. Would stay here again no question.

Spacious room for a family. Clean and good atmosphere.
No TV in the room.

I stayed this hotel with my wife and two kids. The best point is the spacious room large enough for 4 persons stay. The worst point is that TV set is not equiped within the room. The other things are quite good with this small hotel. Staff are friendly and atmosphere of the hotel is good enough to enjoy the historical town of Italy. If you do not need entertainment in your room, this hotel is worth recommending.
