    Fabulous

    The hotel was on the other side of the river from the city, close enough, just 5 mins walk, but nice and quiet in the evening. In a really old building, very quaint, breakfast terrace was lovely (smell from jasmine bushes was magnificent). A few close restaurants/bars if you have walked yourself out in the day and don't want to go too far in the evening. Private parking in hotel garage available. This is an absolute necessity if you have a car.

    Not so much the hotel, but getting to is by car was a nightmare. This is a problem of the city, not the hotel. Many of the streets were closed to cars during the day, meaning you have to pick your way thru the city, using streets without restrictions. I went round and round. Couldn't really work out why some of the streets restricted, cos many cars just using these streets. Eventually, I found my way and my car was thankfully taken off to private hotel garage. Hotel parking absolute must!! If you are driving. Beware that driving is very hard in Florence, to get into the city and to get out. Hotel parking facilities were great!

    The staff is very friendly and kind, the place is very good and more or less near from the important place, the breakfast is good!

    Fabulous

    Very friendly and accomodating staff. NIce terrace over-looking the river Arno. Nice position, being just across the river from the main attractions while being a little more quiet for rest and sleeping.

    In-room facilities could have been improved. Just small things like tea and coffee making facilities, perhaps an english TV channel such as Sky News and a trouser-press, would have greatly improved the experience.

    A very nice, clean hotel in an excellent location, just five minutes walk from the City but in a peaceful and less crowded neighbourhood. A very good breakfast buffet and a pleasant roof-top terrace with bar.

    Excellent service and nice 'classic' atmosphere.

    Exceptional

    The staff was excellent and the breakfast personnel friendly and gracious. It was great having a private place to park so near the hotel, and at a reasonable daily rate. Location in Florence was tops! The hotel is very easy to drive to, which means a lot in Florence.

    Exceptional

    Perfectly localized in the city. Charming old building, outside and inside. Friendly, helpful and well English speaking staff. Decent breakfast with enough time to eat even when you're coming towards the end of breakfast time. Relatively cheap public parking possibilities within 5-10 minutes walking distance.

    Nothing really to complain about, except maybe renovation work in the room above. Although it was low season and at some time they have to do it, they could have started a bit later in the morming, say at 10h.

    Superb

    Excellent location, the staff were very friendly, the room was clean and of a good size. Lovely continental breakfast in the morning to get you started (the ladies were very nice), free internet use in the reception area a bonus.

    Not such a great view from our back room and noise would come through into room if excessive. (these are minor points, overall a very decent hotel in a great location)

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    Rooms are quaint but sufficient for a person on the go. It's not as close to the city as other hotels but the walk is not bad at all. Ask for a room that overlooks the terrace. I really enjoyed my stay there. None of the luxuries, just the necessities.

    Excellent location and easy walking distance to city attractions; very helpful staff;

    breakfast a little dull over the course of a week

    Superb

    A friendly place, with spacious superior rooms, and garage situated 5-10 minutes from Ponte Vecchio. The staff have been friendly and helpful, wifi worked well. We'd definitely go back.

    It's just a detail but although the room was very confortable, the tiled floor was cold to walk on. It's a pity the floors haven't been refurbished. Wooden floors would give the rooms and corridors a much warmer feel.

    Fabulous

    The room was a bit small but not surprising, majority of the hotels within old european cities are that way. the staff was on top of their game, hats off to them. we were fortunate to have a nice window view. i did not ask for that, thank you. if you plan to have your car parked there. remember, if you have a large (U.S.) type vehicle, it might be a little tight.

    this is not a complaint, but for those who want a quite night, there are two bars close by. it was no bother to us

    Fabulous

    Central location and although basic the room was clean and the shower facilities were acceptable

    Generally hotel is a bit tired looking and the hotel could do with a freshen up to revive it although I am sure previously it has been a lovely place.
