nice, clean and quiet hotel in the heart of florence. staff was very helpful. there is no hotel restaurant but decent daily breakfast was served in a cozy dining room. there is a nice terrace. our group was able to order our own take-outs & wine and relaxed here. wifi is good. the hotel location is excellent--it is near many excellent restaurants, 10' walk from the duomo, and 20' walk from the pointe vecchio. have no problem staying at this hotel again.

On arrival we were presented with several upgrade options and were shown both our booked room and available rooms under the upgrade options. Staff at check-in were very helpful as was the member of staff who took our bags and showed us the various rooms. Rooms were spacious but it is important to note that a standard room does not include tea and coffee making facilities (this seems to be common in Italy we have discovered so it is not a criticism of the hotel). The hotel is only ten minutes walk from the station and is within walking distance of many of the main tourist attractions. In particular it is a short walk from the Accademia Gallery which houses Michelangelo's David. It is also only a short walk to the bus stop from where you can catch a bus cheaply to the Piazzale Michelangelo.

"Fantastic location, Historic and eclectic charm!"
This fantastic hotel, within easy walking distance of all major attractions as well as the train station, is a gem in the city of Florence. All of the rooms, as well as the hotel itself, are uniquely decorated. You can spend an entire week here, and see something new and different each day throughout the entire place. The breakfast was super, and the honor bar off the lobby makes an ideal place to relax before starting an evening on the town. As if this weren't enough, the hotel staff and concierge treat the guests like a classic hotel should. What a fIne!

This was our first hotel for our trip to Italy. We were pleasantly surprised. Though it seemed a bit out of the way, it was actually quite close to many sights and the train station.
The hotel was beautifully decorated and the breakfast was especially nice. They had a lift, which is nice after a long flight.
I would definitely return to this lovely hotel.

We loved staying at this hotel. It is in a re-purposed palazzo, and the room was large even by American standards, so huge by European ones. The hotel was immaculate, with large airy rooms, modern decent-sized bathrooms, and nicely decorated. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and spoke English well. The breakfast room was lovely, with original ceiling art, and a nearby art book explaining the paintings (in Italian). The hotel is around one corner from the Gallerie dell'Accedemia, and less than 5 minutes from the Duomo. Because it's just north of the Duomo, it seemed quieter there and slightly less touristy than other areas. Our room was very comfortable in the spring with the windows open, and very quiet nonetheless. Breakfast was a nice range of offerings, and obviously geared to the American traveler. While a little pricey, this is an unbelievably romantic hotel near the heart of Florence. There is only one downside. The hotel is up a full flight of steps, on the 1st (European) floor, and there is no elevator or porter to help you with your bags. There is a staircase chair for guests with limited mobility.

The Panorama is a gem of a hotel for location, affordability, integrity, a great quality breakfast and stunning views from two roof terraces. A mini fridge in the room was a bonus for fresh milk, yogurt, wine, beer, etc. The friendly staff and original artwork gave an authentic experience of Florence.

The centerpiece of this Florence neighborhood is the Basilica di San Lorenzo, one of the largest churches in the city. Located near the city's main market, the most celebrated aspect of this structure may be the Cappelle Medicee. Also notable is the Laurentian Library, which was conceived and built by Michelangelo.
