              Very nice hotel in a good location.

              We paid extra for a room with a view and our view was of a brick wall, beware. In addition the hotel advertises wifi throughout the hotel, this was not the case as there was no wifi in the rooms.

              It is the most charming hotel I have ever stayed. We stayed there for 3 days, every second was fantastic. I definitely would love to come back again shortly. Strongly recommended!

              If there were more choices like salad, fruits for breakfast, then it would be even better.

              Very close to the main train station... Best hotel I ever stay in Italy in all aspect... Highly recommended : )

            • Family with children
              10.0

              We booked this hotel because this is only one of the very few hotels that offers rooms for a family of 4. Most of the hotels in Firenze have rooms for up to 3 people only. We also liked that it is centrally situated between the Santa Maria Novella train station, Duomo, shopping, Arno river & Mercato Central. We booked 2 day trips out of Florence so we wanted to make sure that we are near the train station where most of the tours start. When we arrived on April 25th, there was an open market with music at the Piazza Santa Maria where our hotel was located. There is a gelateria across the Piazza which also sells bottled water. In terms of price, their bottled water is the least expensive. The hotel is also 2 short blocks away from Bucca Mario Ristorante which was recommended by the hotel staff. It is a pricey restaurant but well worth it. We had dinner on our last night at this restaurant. The service was excellent. They wine menu only lists orders for 1/2 bottle or bottle of wine but the waiter made an exception for me.

              In our first 2 breakfast, the restaurant which is located on the 4th floor of the hotel was serving a mix of cut fruits - orange, kiwi, grapes. They stopped serving it on Day 3 - 5 of our stay. I also suggest that they vary their hot menu at least 2x a week because it can get tiring to eat the same bacon & eggs 5 days in a row. The hotel has only 1 PC and I suggest that they seriously consider adding 2 more connections.

              The hotel itself is well located, the room was clean.

              Staff was not friendly, the receptionist smelled of cigarette during our check out, Internet was not working in our room and the person in charge told us it was because the hotel was fully booked. (we had the top floor and the internet was working in the corridor, but not inside our room, we believe it was due to the ceiling beams) (the room was called Eurasia) Staff makes a lot of noise in the corridors that can be heard from the room. Reception staff picks up the phone whilst eating or chewing, which is very annoying.

              Design and the theme of watches, location good, bed comfortable, breakfast nice too. Free wifi!!!!!!!

              Shower, don't like standing in a tub, also no where to put shampoo and gel, design looks good but not practical. Lightnings, sometimes too dark with lights all on

              Centrally located. Very clean rooms. Satisfactory breakfast.

              -Air conditioning makes noise in the night as if you were in an airplane. I had two sleepless nights and the room was really cold. -A room with a view has only "partial" rooftop views. Total disappoitment if you expect a piazza view. -It is very hard to find the hotel, since the name of the hotel is written very small. Maybe 30cm. You try to find that 30cm in a huge piazza. -Careless, uninterested staff.

              very tastefully appointed, felt like a 5* but smaller, staff was great.

              It was clean and modern. Beautiful breakfast room. Excellent location right near the train station and close walking distance to all the shopping areas. We didn't need to take a taxi anywhere except to the airport. The "Watch" theme was very nice. Every room had different paintings of collectors watches.

              Our first room did not have wifi although the hotel said that the entire hotel had wifi signal. Our 2nd room had wifi but for some reason it was very dim and not quite the same as the previous room. It also had a strange smell. Our 3rd room was perfect. Despite having to change rooms twice, I am not that unhappy as the hotel staff were very understanding and made their best effort to find me a suitable room which they did eventually.

              Very well designed, immaculate surroundings. Internet access needs improvement. Need better organization in the breakfast room. People are waiting for tables while chairs are empty. Staff needs to work faster here.

              The internet access was not the best, you cannot print at their computer.
