Had such a HUGE welcome from Rafaella. She came down to help us with the luggage. Explained every single detail about Florence. Showed us to the clean, spacious room and later brought snacks, fruits and welcome drinks. Rafaella also recommended us to Pepo for super nice italian dinner. It is our favourite out of the 3 cities we visited in italy. It is near the train station, supermarket few doors away. Free Wifi. What else can you ask for? And they even gave us a bottle of wine when we checked out but unfortunately we had to reject because we just had too much stuffs to carry. Their hospitality is just beyond words. I cannot recommend this place more.

Room Tip: I stayed in Ambra and it was perfect!

Stayed 3 nights in this small but modern and beautiful room. Very clean but bed was rather hard. Very friendly reception who stayed to wait for us till 8 pm. Delicious biscuit and fruit tray everyday plus wine upon check out far surpass our expectations, thanks! Supermarket 3 minutes away and central train station 5 minutes away; extremely convenient. We walked to all attractions and train/bus to Prada(space) and The Mall. Will definitely stay again if mattress is changed to a softer and more comfortable one :) .Hope to be back. Vicinity safe.

As many others have written, the location and the staff are fantastic. Giulia was there when we arrived and she helped us with the places to visit. She also noted when we registered, that we arrived on my birthday. She said we should have let them know, that they would have done something special. The next day after sightseeing for 4-5 hours, we returned to our room and found some fresh pastries in our mini fridge. You are near the train station, which was nice since we had arrived from Rome by train. You are also near main sights.
The rooms are very comfortable Nd quiet even though you are near a main street. There are only 5 rooms, so service is very personal.
We even received a parting gift - a nice bottle of wine.
Marta and Raffaella also were very nice. Strongly recommend.

Room Tip: Only 5 rooms, so size of group may dictate room to chose. Staff is helpful no matter what.

We loved the hotel and the people. Nice decorated room, good size mainly because our big suitcases, clean, organized. Bathroom and shower very nice. We would like to thank in special Raffaella who welcomed us in a lovely and unique way! All the girls on the desk were very nice with us, but Raffaella was very special. The hotel is located very near the train station and it is easily to walk to the main sightseeings, restaurants, etc.. We loved everything in Florence and if we come back we will stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Good location. Competitive prices. Clean, organized, quieter, larger rooms.

No need to look further - The rooms were large enough to accommodate my husband and I with our two teenage children. My mother had a separate room which was slightly smaller, but had similar facilities.
The blinds (electric) made sure that the room was dark enough at night and the double glazing cut the noise of the busy street below completely. The comfortable (large) bed as well as the fresh crisp linen all contributed to a fantastic nights' sleep - exactly what is needed when staying in the city! Being in a location that is just a five minute walk to ALL of the major attractions in Florence as well as being accross the road from the train station is also a good reason to stay here. The little extras (a basket of fruit each day, pastries left in the fridge, buscuits, juices and water) as well as coffee making facilities (unseen in other hotels in Italy...) made our stay relaxed and pleasant. We also had the opportunity to catch up with our corrispondence as there is Wi-Fi in all the rooms. All in all, the best place in Italy by far!!!I wouldn't hesitate to stay here.
