            Great value for money, a no-nonsense selection of services in a clean and modern design. Reception is open 24h, it's an hotel offering accommodation and doing it well.

            The central location of the hotel,the most interesting sites of Firenze were within walking distance.The reasonable fair price of the room.

            We arrived at Florence train station and there were plenty of taxis. It cost 10 Euro to the hotel and it was a 10-15 minute drive through the centre and to the east side of the centre. The hotel is in a very good location on a leafy one way road. As Florence is so compact - if you enjoy a walk then you can quite easily make your way to the major sights from the hotel. The hotel is close to the river and very nice for evening strolls. There is a cafe next door that is well priced for lunch and lots of shops nearby including a good ice-cream shop. The hotel is air conditioned, clean, and modern with friendly and helpful staff. We had a very good sleep thanks to an amazingly comfortable bed and towels were changed daily. Breakfast is served from 7.30 - 10.00 and is an excellent buffet with lots of choice. We hired bicycles for a few days and locked them to the hotel railings at the side of the building on the hotel car park and they were perfectly safe. Reception is available 24 hours and there is a good selection of snacks and drinks available and a hot drinks machine in reception. Although the hotel provides free wi-fi, I couldn’t connect form the room, however I could connect in the reception area so do be aware that you might not have wi-fi in your room even though this is a great selling point for the hotel. They provide a good flat screen TV but the only English speaking channel available is CNN, not that you will have much time for TV anyway =) If I returned to Florence, I would definitely stay again.

            No air-con was available and it was 27 degrees in the room. The staff advised us to open the window. Air-con was stated when we were booking the room.

            4.2

            Don't like it at all, staffs are not helpful in a way to keep you waiting in the reception and not answering the question you want to ask.........location is the outskirt area of Duomo which you need at least 20-25 minutes walk from the central, price is the published rate right in front of the entrace which mislead your thought of having any discounts rate from the late booking.............

            The hotel had the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in (in a European Hotel). The location was about a 20 minute walk from the city center and about a 20 minute walk from "Piazza Michaelangelo" (a must see at sunset - most beautiful view of the city). The staff was very helpful and directed us toward the sightseeing tour of Florence. We bought our tickets at the hotel for 15 euro each and walked about 5 min to the bus stop (beware the stop sign is behind trees). The taxi to the hotel was 16 euro from the train station. There was a bus system, however we did not use it.

            We were not warned that all museums were closed on Mondays. We were in Florence on a Sunday and Monday and we decided to walk the city on Sunday and do the museums on Monday. When we went to the museums on Monday we couldn't do anything. Beware- the "dome cathedral" if you are a woman you must have shorts/skirt that is down to your knees and your shoulders cannot be showing. You must wear a jacket to cover them otherwise they will not let you in the cathedral.

            Hotel was only 15 minutes away from the center. Romms were small but comfortable. Good value for the money paid.

            Airconditioning was not warming up the room but after complaining at the reception, it was fixed. There were no shower gel, soaps provided but we had our so it was not a problem. I was surprised though that for a 3 star hotel this was not the case. The street where the hotel is is busy but our room was on 4th floor so there was not so much noise.

            The best WiFi of the seven cities we visited. We could talk to the family through Skype with no problem at all.The breakfast was very good. We had scrambed eggs for the first time since 5/16/11 when we arrived in Italy. The location is unbeatable at this price with a surplus of means of transportation. There is a very good restaurant just 2 blocks away where youe can eat well at reasonble prices. And finally we needed a lavanderia that would wash intimate clothing and found a good one (Luciana) three blocks away. Only a block away from this lavanderia there is an Apple support and retail shop as well.

            There is no refrigerator in the room so we had to buy from the front desk. The price of the bottle of water went from 1.20 to 1.50 in justhours. But at least it stayed that way.

            Cheap one. Good location, not in the closed city center so you can easily reach it by car. At the same time -- 5 minutes of walk from the downtown.

            No special place for parking. This hotel is under reconstruction, so the rooms are renewed but halls are still in progress.

            Location was very good, very close to the historical centre (10 min walking) and also main train station (Firenze S.M.N.)...

            Hotel was in big reconstruction during our stay... Lots of noice, rubbish from workers and building materials, elevators did not work (just sometimes), so whole atmosphere was killed by this things. I think hotel should inform you about this things before your arrival, and if not, they should ask you for more patience or offer you something more. Prize should be lower for this hotel, especially during reconstruction. Second important is that we booked room with view (balcony) to the city and we got small window to the backyard.... Last thing is breakfast, it was continental, but very simple... I don´t want to say "poor"

            I liked the simple modern design, spacious rooms and views.

            Initially i was very pleased with the Design and price. Two big issues arose which point to poor management. Air Con leaking onto floor, dripping all night and no mosquito nets or sonar protection for guests even though the hotel is surrounded by trees and Florence has very high summer humidity. It took several approaches to staff before rm change, air con still leaked and completely bitten by mosquiteos!

            The hotel is good.

            There is not door in the shower bath. There is not hand's soap.

            9.2

            Nice and brand newly refurbished hotel very close to Santa Croce and walking distance to city centre (10/15 minutes). Staff was very pleasant, helpful and smiling; my room (508) was quite spacious with french bed, beautiful decorated wall and a big terrace with breathtaking Florence's skyline view. Breakfast is continental with good standard, maybe improving regarding the choice. Free wifi working fast and a fantastic value for money!

            Maybe one more towel in the bathroom could improve the whole comfort

            It was a comportable and clean option for couple days. Rooms are fair, breakfast was extra 6 euro which is too much for it. You can go outside instead.

            The most annoying and numb staff I have ever seen!! Each day he made us loose our 2 hour with the confusions that he made and unable to solve anything. This can be enough reason not to go there. Service was so slow that anyone can go mad. They should definitely change their staff!

            The staff was nice, breakfasts are OK, location is good

            No soap in the bathroom, not enough towels (only 2), poor wi fi.
