    Superb

    A very good hotel, excellent value for money, quiet area away from the busy city center but only 10 mins walk away from everything. Easy to find as it is close to the river. I very comfortable experience.

    Totally enjoyed the experience, so I have no complaints.

    Very good

    The recently renovated room with wooden floor is very nice... I love it!!! I think all the carpets in any other rooms should be changed to wooden floor.

    The staffs could be friendlier... I have stayed at this hotel for four times, they should have had my record or something...

    The location is brillliant, short tram ride (T1) from the main train station (western side). The hotel is immaculate, the staff were very friendly and very helpful. I can't understand some of the other comments made about this hotel. I was given one of their newer rooms (for no reason) and this was an amazing room. For the same price, I stayed in very poor accomodation in Venice, Verona and La Cinque Terre. The bar and lounge is very cosy. This hotel was more like 5 star. I will stay there from now on, and Travel Italy from Florence, the hotel was that good.

    Having to leave the hotel. One of the best hotels in Europe i've stayed in, i was really not expecting this. I've always stayed in higher priced accomodation all around Europe, this beats all by far.... I hope your stay was as good as ours.

    Fabulous

    The upgrades to the main areas look great. The location is excellent, just off the main autostrada and a short 12 min walk to the centre..

    They need to upgrade the rooms to the same style the main areas have been completed...

    Family rooms (suitable for 4 persons) with a good size. Beds are comfortable. Walking distance from the city center and smn station, but located in a peaceful area. Chambres de bonne taille pour une famille de quatre personnes (mais salle de bain petite). Literie confortable. Proche du centre ou de la gare SMN (15-20 mn à pied), mais dans une zone plus calme.

    My credit card was debited immediately after the booking (3 weeks prior to check-in), even if the terms and conditions of the booking were clearly stating that no deposit was required and that the booking was cancellable up to 24 h prior to arrival. After claim, the hotel promised a refund that never came. After a reminder, we were told that the refund was pointless because we were close to our check-in date. Such a practice is just unacceptable. Small bathroom. Breakfast products are of bad quality. Except if you request it separately from the waiter, coffee quality is just far from what you could expect in Italy. The hotel needs to be refurbished. L’hôtel a prélevé dès la réservation (effectuée 3 semaines avant) la totalité des 3 nuitées, alors que les conditions de ventes stipulaient bien que la réservation était annulable jusqu’à la veille de l’arrivée et qu’aucun dépôt n’était requis. Lorsque cela leur a été signalé, ils ont promis un remboursement qui n’a jamais été effectué. A la seconde relance, ils ont déclaré que c’était inutile car nous étions proches de la date de début de séjour. Ce genre de pratique est tout simplement inacceptable. Produits utilisés pour le petit-déjeuner de qualité médiocre et, sauf à le demander à part, un café d’une qualité indigne de l’Italie. Hôtel qui a besoin d’une rénovation.

    Lovely hotel and with tram stop very close to hotel, very easy to access central Florence. Even without tram, it takes 15 minutes to walk to Ponte Vecchio

    The staff are not particularly friendly or helpful. Again as some reviews state, they are more used to business travel so family staying with children (10 & 12) are not particularly welcomed in my opinion

    I stayed here the night before I was to fly out of Florence, after a 3 week visit and course of study. I booked online without having seen the hotel since it is a little out of Centro. I was happily surprised when I checked in. The hotel may be 3 stars however, it is modern, updated and beautiful with a 4-star staff. Since I was leaving before the included breakfast, they prepared a cold breakfast to take with me to the airport. I could see the top of the Duomo from my window.

    There was nothing I did not like. I did have the handicapped accessible bathroom but for the cost, I did not mind.

    We stayed there for 4 nights in the middle of a heat wave in August but were so happy with the facilities at the hotel. The room was clean, cool and modern and the breakfast was well worth waking up to. We even had a room with a view. The staff were very helpful.

    It is a very modern hotel with small but nice rooms. A pleasant place to stay.

    It was a bit away from the centre of Florence. The shuttle service to the train station seems very infrequent, however there is a bus and tram service nearby.

    Excellent and helpful staff...lovely room, immaculate and nice.

    Breakfast was to end at 10:30, but staff began removing food at 10...which I thought was inappropriate...especially since we got there at 9:50!

    When we looked we needed a family room and parking. The location was a 15 minute walk to the centre and parking was available at 23 euros. This was cheaper than the pay and display at more than 30 a day. The family room had the wow factor as the kids said.stayed extra nigh and price dropped even better value .super hotel and staff .

    Nothing the best hotel of our trip this year would recommend 100 %
