                  Excellent location, close to station and other amenities. Attractive ambience. Very friendly and helpful staff.

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  great location to train, and buses, easy walk to city center and sites of city, yet tucked away on side street which made it quieter. The staff are friendly and very helpful, made us feel like part of the family.

                  Thin walls so heard your neighbors easily. No fruit served at breakfast, only juices. But, the mercado is an easy walk to buy fruit etc.

                • Family with children
                  9.2

                  This hotel has nice rooms, get the loft one for family, will sleep 4, in a good location in Florence. It is set back from the street which makes it quiet most of the time although walls are thin and outside courtyard noise can be distracting. A very good breakfast and helpful staff. We had a very pleasant stay here.

                  It's such a nice hotel, very well-located and quiet. The staff are very kind and the apartments very practical and charmful. We really recommend it, especially to families with children. Breakfast is fine.

                  Short walks to interest points, quite location though close to railway station.

                  Great location. Nice staff, Clean and comfortable although basic.

                  Nothing - better than expectations.

                  Excellent location.

                  Poor noise isolation; actual address doesn't match with street number; don't expect too much for breakfast

                  The descriptions other people have written about this hotel prepared us well for our stay: It is a bit quirky, but not in an unpleasant way. You look at individual items of the decor and are set to wondering "How did that get here?" Our apartment had an amazing vaulted ceiling. The staff was helpful -- for example, storing our luggage at the hotel and then coming back later to pick it up and get a taxi to the airport was smooth and painless.

                  I went a little crazy because something (probably the storm) knocked out the wireless Internet and there was no connectivity the whole weekend. The price/value relationship of this hotel is ok, but not particularly great.

                  location was fabulous close to station and easy walking distance to il duomo, ponte vecchio and markets. set back off the street behind a quiet courtyard. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

                  Professionally run, spotlessly clean, and great value considering the wonderful location only a few minutes walk from both the station and the Cathedral.

                  The design of the building with the vaulted ceilings, wooden staircases and lack of insulation between rooms, can make them quite noisy when other guests are talking or climbing the stairs in the adjoining rooms.

                  The Hotel was very close to the Florence markets and easy walking distance to all other attractions.

                  No kettle or tea making facilities in the rooms

                  Beautiful hotel central to Florence, only 2 minute walk to centre. Very clean and tiday, we stayed in an excellent family room that slept 5 of us comfortably. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return sometime in the future.

                  Nothing in particular. It was just ok and the only hotel I found when I was looking for one.

                  The room was not really clean when we got there.

                  Excellent apartment with good breakfast and so close to train station. Walking distance to main atractions.

                  That we had been over booked and had to stay one night at another hotel. (very nice Hotel though as well) And two at La Contessina. All in all a good experience.
