Hotel is close to the airport but not on the busy (and ugly...) Via di Novoli. At street level hotel is quiet. The decor is warm and pleasant. I was impressed by the good quality of the towels in the fully equipped bathroom. Among the issues: phone in my room was not working, water pressure in the shower was pitiful,...

Clean, nice decor, friendly and helpful staff, and very easy on the billfold. They will arrange transport to the airport, 10 minutes max. And a good reasonably priced osteria nearby. Would stay again for an early flight.

We spent one night here before a very early flight out of Florence. The room was small and very simply furnished with a dresser, bed, night tables, and small bathroom. The walls are very thin and we could hear a neighbor shouting into his cell phone after we checked in. Fortunately, we did not hear anything after dinner from either...

The positive is that the staff was professional, friendly, and helpful. A true credit to the hotel. Booked hotel due to catching early flight back to United States the next day and it is very close to the airport. The rooms are basic but clean, definitely not luxurious. If you are looking for one night stay to catch an early...

Nice and clean hotel. Near bus station to the center (1,2) eur. Clean rooms with new furniture and new bathroom. Good breakfast and very good coffee. The stuff was very kind and helpful. If we travel again to Florence I would always pick this hotel.

We chose this hotel purely as we got a deal on a room for €66 (€130 usually another guest informed us) and as it was 5 minutes drive from the hotel. We arrived late by city bus after a day exploring Florence and found the reception desk staff to be very well informed and helpful. The room was clean but...

Let me start with the positive -- the staff were all extremely helpful, warm and easy to work with. They were cooperative and efficient in getting taxis, printing boarding passes and offering sight suggestions. Also, the hotel is very close to the Florence airport and a short ride to downtown Florence. But the rooms were quite small and the shower...

As I said the hotel is great, the room is clean and spacious, the bathroom too. The balcony has a great view. The only thing I really didn't like was the location. I'm 19, I traveled alone and I didn't feel very safe coming back in the evening (by evening I mean 7:30/8 pm). It's clearly a poor neighbourhood and...

Situated so close to the airport, you might wonder about how good a hotel can be - but convenience is only the beginning of the story here. The people in charge are helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. The place is spotless. The bar is always open! And the rates - you can't beat them. We take the bus into the city...

Great location close to the airport (E12-18 for a taxi, E10 for a shuttle per couple), and a 15-30 minute bus ride to downtown (buy tickets at the desk). New, clean, comfortable rooms; friendly, helpful staff who speak English; breakfast available (looked good). And the price is really right. We were very happy with this place.
