    Fabulous

    Hotel is situated not far from the railway station (10 minutes by feet). Perfect location. The hotel has a garden. It is situated near park. There ios fantastic view from the windows. There is very good breakfast with Swedish table: croussant, cheese, butter, jam, yoghurt, cereals, pies, tea and coffee. Personnel are very welcome. There is opportunity to keep luggage in a special storage before check-in and after check-out.

    There was dust on the furniture. The water from tap smells like it was treated by quartz.

    good location

    How is it possbile that a hotel with three stars does not have a fridge in its rooms ? The receptionist was arrogant. Showed no attitude for good service.

    Good

    The garten is beautiful and we liked the cats wandering around in the garden. For our purpose, that is as an exibitor in the Florence Biennale, the Fortessa de Basso was nearby and very easy to visit every day. The hotel is also very close to the inner city and no problem to walk in the vicinity. The room was cosy and the linen and towels were always clean and fresh. The prints (etches) in the foyer are beautiful.

    The breakfast was really very boring. A variation of bread or buns would be very nice as well as some fresh fruit. A face lift of the interior as well as furniture, with nice paintings or prints in the rooms would put you on a higher level of accommodation. It will be very nice of some of the personel would be more friendly - a smile costs nothing but are so important.

    Fabulous

    Good hotel with very big rooms. It is located in the city centre, just 6 minutes to the train station by foot. Good price for a 3 stars hotel.

    The equipement in the room is a little old: the air-conditioning works loudly, the tv is too old.

    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!

    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 ).

    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.

    Very good

    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.... :-)
