              10.0

              One of the absolute best hotels I've ever stayed, and definitely the best I've stayed in Florence.

              The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel is impeccably clean and well-maintained, and the garden is just lovely. You're in the center of Florence, but the inside garden is like an oasis. It's a very quick walk to the Duomo. The breakfast is fantastic. I also appreciated that the rooms and especially the bathroom are updated and modern.

              None!

            • Family with children
              5.4

              good location to railway station and city center . Nice garden ,= quit oasis in the middle of the city center . Cheap price .

              Shabby rooms , no fridge in the room , no chair in the room , no couch in the room .Continental breakfast is rather limited ( no eggs, no fresh food ).

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              Personnel was very friendly and useful. Breakfast was quiet good. I also liked the parking option - driver from the nearest garage comes to take your car there and back. Location is close to Central Market and Railway Station.

              It can be a good choice if you want to save money. It may be a good choice also for dog owners - you will have enough space to walk your dog on Piazza Independenza. Otherwise I would not recommend this hotel. It is old, dirty and uncomfortable and doesn't look like 3 star hotel.

              5.8

              Cheap, Good location

              Very old, breakfast comes from a hard discounter (nothing is fresh), no hairdryer, everything smells of cleaning product

            • Couple
              7.4

              Very good location. Good value for money. Very nice garden where you can enjoy your breakfast.

              Old furniture and other things like windows, walls etc. But somebody can look at this as an oldfashioned hotel.... :-)

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Hotels rooms are really nice and clean..worth staying here. walkable from station and to the city center as well. Good one...

              Little bit expensive and WIFI is available only in lobby..it would be great if it is available in rooms as well..
