Positive Reviews

Tasty, filling breakfast

The delicious buffet breakfast is by far and away the most memorable part of most guests' stay. It is varied with a variety of fruit and pastries. It is copious too and could keep you going for a few hours - you may even decide to skip lunch!

Get out of town!

Being away from the historic centre of Florence, means that you can not only escape the noise and hullabaloo, but get better value for your money. Guests reckon that the rooms are a lot cheaper than the equivalent in the centre and are nice and spacious too. There is nevertheless a frequent bus service running past the hotel into the town centre.

Lovely staff

Guests find the staff to be extremely good humoured and cheerful on the whole. They always have a smile on their face and like to help out.

Negative Reviews

A bit out of the way

If you like to be right in the heart of the action, you may feel a bit isolated here. A 30-minute walk into the town centre can seem quite far for many guests and they see little point saving money, just to spend it on taxis. There isn't a lot going on in the neighbourhood either with few restaurants of any note.

Iffy Wi-Fi

Guests, especially those staying in the hotel's annex, often have problems connecting to the Internet. The signal is quite variable and you often have to approach the lobby if you want to get a reliable connection.

A bit tired

Guests comment that the hotel is a bit dated and worn. More attention could also be paid to the cleanliness and general maintenance.
