    The location is okay.

    We realized that we lost our things on the train on the first night we arrived, so we went to the front desk to seek help. However, the staff was not helpful and wasn’t trying to help. We also asked for a taxi to the train station, but the staff told us to go outside and hail for a taxi. The second day, we were in the room when the housekeeper came in. We asked if she could come in thirty minutes later, and she rolled her eyes. After we got back to our room, we found an used glove on our room floor. Also, the towel we left in the tub were left there and she didn’t even bother changing it. We went down to the front desk again and the other staff asked us what we wanted her to do in a very unfriendly way. She then said she’d send someone to change our towels and remove the glove right away. Surprisingly, when we got back from dinner, the towel and the glove were still there. On the third day, we left our towel in the tub again expecting to receive new towels, but realized that they were simply folded back. It claim to be a five star luxury hotel, but the service is nothing more than three star.

    stayed here a few times and location is great, and has a nice feeling down the old street of Florence.

    I was put on a low floor and was very noisy the first night...infact i didn't sleep very much at all.... was slightly annoyed as i have stayed here a good amount of times so would expect that the hotel would put you in the best location of the hotel as a returning customer.

    The location was really good.

    The room was a bit old-fashioned and was extremely noisy at night-time.

  • Older travelers

    The location for sightseeing & shopping - is great

    The room & the bath should have more cupboard space.The bathroom floor should be much better cleaned from old stains. The bread at breakfast should be of better quality & fresh.

    Location

    The smell of the corridors, room interiors.

    The location of the hotel was great; it was close to most of the attractions in Florence. Nice view of the top of the Duomo from the roof of the hotel.

    I think the hotel is undergoing a long term renovation, so some of the rooms were quite nice but some of them were poor. So it all depends what type of room they give you. The rooms that we had were mix.

  • Family with children

    Excellent location, with easy walking to most sites in Florence. Staff were very professional and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding, and the dining room staff were wonderful.

    Rooms could be better lit, in general, and the showers could be updated.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location is excellent and roof-top terrace ideal to enjoy a relaxing drink after a long day in the sun.

    No complaints really other than price but Florence is an expensive city for hotel accommodation.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    We like the entrance only.

    Corridors was smelling badly. Rooms smells like a humudity, while you were walking carpets used to dusty.

  • Family with children

    Overall, the hotel was at about 3-star standard (as far as bedrooms and breakfast were concerned). Nevertheless, it was very good value, given the location. I liked its proximity to so many restaurants. I especially liked its roof-top terrace - and my teenagers like the gym (one had to pay 10 EURO a day to use the gym). Buffet breakfast was not excellent (but it did have plenty food). Rooms were clean and comfortable, although the narrow streets generate a lot of noise at night (I was on the 1st floor). But you only hear it if the window is open. The bedroom TV had 17 channels: three in English: CNN, CNBC and Aljazeera. Reception staff were generally helpful and accomodating.

  • Group of friends

    The superb roof terrace bar - wonderful. Breakfast selection was excellent. Friendly staff and welcoming reception in particular.

    We were unable to access the gym and spa - we had chosen the hotel particularly for the reason that it had these things so this was a little inconvenient

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Overall the hotel was very good even though it was more expensive. In the future we would stay there again, especially if the price can be improved. An extra tax/fees of 8 Euros per day for two people should be part of the price not tacked on top of the hotel rate.

    Central location

    Breakfast. The service was very poor, tables not cleared waited two days with dinning room half empty and no tables available. The selection was good but only early in the serving selections were not automatically re-filled. A significant negative to a largely good hotel. Needs attention.

  • Couple

    Good location, near a good restaurant.

    Very deceiving from photos. Lobby looks grand but rooms very old and basic. Airconditioner didnt work and very noisy. Plumbing issues. A lot of problems with wifi, kept dropping out. Staff was very rude, rang for something and specifically told them to slip it under the door coz I will be in shower. They unlocked the door without even knocking and walked in. Luckily I was dressed!!!
