    Very close to station, good space in bedroom, internet ok

    Bathroom is small, the breakfast is poor

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Pros: 1) location across from Train Station and in same plaza as Bus Station was great for traveling to/from Rome and Florence 2) included breakfast

    Cons: 1) there are steps to get in the front lobby which can be a pain if you have luggage 2) breakfast variety is meagre 3) washroom is not air conditioned and shower door was leaky

  • Older travelers

    The location adjacent to the train station was so convenient and most of the attractions were within walking distance.The front desk was always manned around the clock by three wonderful guys who were extremely helpful with travel and sightseeing tips and were very accomodating. We were initially allocated a room on the 3rd floor which was comfortable but when we expressed our concern about the ongoing construction was upgraded to an updated room on the ground floor that had radiant heated floors,shower with body sprays and an illuminated ceiling with changing colors at no extra cost.Free WiFi and breakfast were nice touches.Overall a great three star facility.

    Only minor deficiency was the quality of the bath towels which were lightweight without loops and thus not very absorbent

    The location is perfect if you plan to travel (by train or by bus) in Tuscany. The hotel is on renovation, but you can survive...We did it because we were out most of the time! I strongly recommend one restaurant in the area: Osteria dall'Oste. Excellent staff, great menu!

  • Couple

    The room had a balcony with a view of the city, despite the fact that it is located in a bad district of Florence. The breakfast was good, apart from the coffee, with a big variety.

    The room was 200m away from the reception and according to the reception this is the case for any not-luxury double room. We were informed about this but not before the confirmation of the room- too late to reconsider our decision. This 200 m away means that there is not internet access at the room and for the breakfast we had to get out of our building and this in a very bad district of the city, If someone decide to stay at this hotel, I would suggest to choose the luxury rooms that cost about 20 euros more but are located at the main building and look to be recently renovated.

    The location is excellent! It is located right across tge train station and tram station. It only took us 15 minutes to walk to the Uffizi Gallery and everything else is only 10 minutes away. The room has tv with cartoons on and free wi-fi for the whole building. Breakfast is included (althiugh the breakfast staff were not welcoming) and its quite nice. The cleaning lady was nice and all smiles. Staff was helpful in providing advice and directions.

    a very good location - just near the railway station. very nice hotel stuff.reasonable price and good breakfast included.the rooms is clean and neat.

    the hotel is under renovation,so be ready for that. the hotel itself is quite old and shabby but if you like antiques you might enjoy it)))the air conditioner was too strong and we couldn't regulate it properly. and - you can hear your neighbours which is a great minus!

    The location is great, and I love the friendly staff, the breakfast, and it's very quiet during the night.

    The hotel is very close to smn train station, that was main reason for us to choose this hotel. It is currently undergoing renovations and ground floor is complete. It is nice and modern. Showers have good pressure and room is tidy and clean and our room (#103) was very quiet. You can leave a deposit to borrow an electric kettle for tea or coffee. Auto laundry is close by and all sight seeing areas are about 10-15 minutes walk from hotel to the same direction. Staff can understand English-one is fluent.

    Breakfast is little bit poor. However for the price and location this can be compromised. There is no soap holder inside the shower, it is not safe to use the soap and leave on the floor!!! But perhaps this will be fixed later when renovations are fully complete.

    Room was a good size and very modern. Location could not be better - right opposite Central Station ...

    The extra single bed in our room was one of those fold out flimsy types - not very comfortable.

  • Couple

    Good location, close to train station and with walking distance to all sites of the city. Good standard hotel room in the city and the price was very reasonable.

    Good location,nice staff,nice patio/smoking area out the back

    The breakfast room was quite small and a bit of a fight at busy times but the food was good.

    staff is nice, room is clean and quiet

    breakfast can be improved :)

    When you walk off your train at Santa Maria Novella train station, to your right you walk out of the area and the hotel is located directly across the street. If you leave towards the left, you will see a McDonalds and will need to turn around and go back to the other side. The Hotel was booked for two couples and both rooms were spacious. The bed is just a pull out couch but comfortable enough. Blow dryer is provided and microwave is available through the kitchen, if you ask where it is. The breakfast has cereal, pastries, eggs, Italian meats and cheeses. Coffee, tea and juices are offered as well. This is a very conveniently located hotel. About a ten minute walk to the Duomo. Go early (8ish) to the sights to avoid lines (we went November time and there was still a long line behind us!)
