5/5 Excellent

Absolutely loved the central position of this hotel which meant all places of interest were within walking distance. The endless breakfast was fabulous with an extremely wide and varied choice of food. The free snacks and soft drinks that were available in the lounge throughout the day were an added bonus especially when you returned from a day out sightseeing. The hotel was nicely presented with a lovely breakfast room and was decorated throughout in a Florentine style. There were some great restaurants nearby and the gelato on the corner of the Santa Maria novella square was a must each day. We will definitely be returning.

This is a charming place and charmingly decorated. The breakfast room is especially lovely, a kind of atrium. There is not much storage at all for your toiletries in the bathroom. Could use some shelves or more counter space.

Property was convenient to train station. Unfortunately, construction is being done on nearby buildings so sidewalk is not usable, will have to cross the street to be safe. Otherwise, very nice and delicious breakfast!
