Location is convenient. Close to train station and many attractions. We stayed on 5th floor with a pretty nice view to the front of the hotel. The breakfast/bar is on the rooftop and it created quite a bit of chair moving noise late at night and early in the morning. Breakfast is so so.

Dear Guest, We thank you first for spending time to make a review on your stay with us in Florence! We are glad to know that you enjoyed our hotel, especially for our convenient location, close to train station and the main attractions. Thanks also for appreciating the pretty nice view from your room on the 5th floor. But we take note about the problem you had with the moving chair noise, late at night and early in the morning, on the rooftop terrance and about your opinion on breakfast service that we will certainly report to the personel in charge. Anyway we hope to welcome you again and in the meantime we remain with best regards from all our staff

New amenities, excellent location, great views

You can’t beat the location, and we loved the view of the Duomo from the rooftop. The bathrooms in the rooms are newly renovated and comfortable size. We will definitely stay here again!

Excellent central location

Helpful & friendly staff. Clean and peaceful despite being so central with reasonable facilities, Good location for all Florence has to offer. Only gripe was that the 6th,floor terrace wasn't open in the evening as this would be a good place to unwind with a BYO bottle!

Very weird experience

Pros: The location! It's close to everything!
Cons: The service can definitely be improved. We stayed at a few hotels around Italy and this was by far the worst.
Location: The location was great! You are in the center of Florence and can walk to anything you want to see!
The hotel is beautiful. Very exquisitely decorated and clean. The staff however is horrible. We arrived very early and they agreed to hold our luggage for us. The greeting was pleasant and welcoming. When we got back to check in, the staff was not as polite. The bellhop pretty much asked for a tip (which I found forward and a little rude). Check out was a horrible experience. The woman who checked us out was very rude and unhelpful. I explained we had a train to catch in 20 minutes and she couldn't care less. We waited almost 25 minutes for her to finish up with the guest who was checking out before us and by the time our turn came, we were very pressed for time. She said that she was alone at the desk and she couldn't speed up. Luckily, my family had already left to make their way to the train station with the luggage and I was able to run there after I was done checking out (the whole process took 15 mins and left me 5 minutes to run to the train station). I do not understand why this hotel is rated so highly. It has a very weird, strong smell throughout and the staff was definitely not up to par. One positive experience was, I hurt my ankle while in Florence and the lady at the bar helped me with ice to help my swelling. That was the only positive experience at the hotel.
