                Location

                The washroom flush was not functioning and even I mentioned it in the morning nothing happened.

              • Couple
                5.8

                The location was great. They bumped us up to a bigger room was a big tub but the hotel wasnt so lavish.

                Hotel was a 3 star. They turn off the airconditioning at night!

              • Couple
                6.6

                Hotel staffs were very helpful. They gave us a lot of good information on finding restaurants and transportations.

                The mattress was extremely uncomfortable. You could literally feel the springs inside the mattress. I did not sleep well at night.

              • Single
                6.2

                good position

                noisy, not good choice for breakfast

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Very central although on a noisy street. Rooms clean and comfortable but buffet breakfast could be better although adequate.

              • Family with children
                4.2

                Hard to believe the air-conditioning is so old and not function under a temperature of over 36 degree C. We could not sleep for whole night! Besides, no WIfi and you can only use the one and only one PC at the so-called lobby after a long Q at all time.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Staff were very friendly with good recommendations. Excellent location - Florence is small but this hotel is pretty much 5 mins from the train station, 5 mins from Michelangelo's David and 10 mins from the main square. Shower could have been better Bed could have been bigger. But excellent value for money.

                The air con system isn't all the great as is controlled at the main desk but does work.

              • Single
                5.8

                Nice breakfast

                Room was in need of an update, toilet ran constantly and shower had mildew. The rest of the hotel seemed nice.

                Location, access, and friendliness of the staff

                The facility was a bit cramped, and the shower head broke, but the staff were immediately responsive and helpful.

              • Single
                8.4

                Hotel was only a few minutes walk to the major tourist sights and the design district. Only a few steps to the subway and less to the trams. Breakfast arrangement was unique. The hotel had a door into a restaurant next door and you got your breakfast there. The pastries were excellent.

              • Couple
                8.8

                Staffs were so friendly and nice location.

              • Couple
                6.6

                There are big rooms with comfortable beds and a huge bathtub.

                The air conditioning unit in the room is really too noisy, but necessary to be on during all night in the summer.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Air condition Honest breakfast

                Mini bar not working a little noisy from the road near by

                Every thing was perfect I recommened it for any one want to stay at florence

                The safe box in one room did not work and in the other room the air condition was not good
