Nice hotel, amazing rooftop terrace

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: Great location, great terrace.
Location: Great food options nearby. Recommend highly SIMBIOSIS pasta restaurant that is only 3 blocks away.
This small hotel is great. Persi from the hotel Staff is amazing at making your stay pleasant. The hotel is very close to Santa Maria Novella Station (7 minutes walking) and its 10-20 minutes from main city museums and attractions. Firenze is a lovely city and the hotel has great food options nearby. It has a amazing Little rooftop terrace with an amazing view of the Duomo. Thanks for a lovely time.

A gem in the heart of Florence

Posted May 3, 2017 on Hotels
This hotel is perfectly located for seeing Florence. Very comfortable, a wonderful breakfast and an amazing rooftop balcony with a view of the city. There was a slight issue with the plumbing (a strange smell) and the power (easily went out), but it's an extremely old building so should be expected. We will book again for our next visit to Florence.

A nice, clean, good location hotel

Posted Apr 16, 2017 on Hotels
The 4 of us (2 adults, a 4.5 years young child and an infant) stayed here for 2 nights. The location is great, crossing Via Nazionale, which is sort of a main street, full of restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Just a 2 minutes walk from San Lorenzo, the central market and a 5 minutes walk from the duomo. The hotel itself is nice and tidy, the staff is welcoming and friendly. There's a nice continental breakfast. Only problem is the lack of elevator, which made me work hard on the first and last days of our stay. The stroller we came with was left regularly on the ground floor (Entrance door to the building is always closed).

Location and Views

No lift to the third floor would be a bit tricky for some but once there a very comfortable stay. Within minutes of the central market and Duomo and within easy walking distance of other attractions in Florence. The surrounding neighbourhood was great for eateries and supermarkets too.

Thank you for your nice feedback. Unfortunately (o fortunately) we are in a historical building and we can't have a lift. It is nice to hear that all the rest was good. Looking forward to welcoming you soon kind regards!

Perfect for Venice

Posted Mar 28, 2016 on Hotels
Very short walk from the train station. Lovely rooms...nice view from the rooftop...beds were excellent and the continental breakfast provided by the staff was more than adequate to start off the day. Would return again if the occasion brings us to Florence once again.

A Great Base To Explore Beautiful Florence From

Posted Mar 18, 2016 on Hotels
This is a gem of a hotel in a great location and is available at a very reasonable price. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we got a good nights sleep overall (woken a couple of times by a bit of street noise, but it's nothing much and we were soon off to sleep again). The breakfast was great and the hotel staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. This is not a hotel to choose if you don't like stairs, as it's 59 steps to the hotel level and there's no lift. You also need to be prepared to accept a few quirks that come from staying in an old historic building. The water pressure in the bathroom for the shower and toilet was at times quite weak, although we always got a nice hot shower. The view of the Duomo from the breakfast room is great, and from the roof top balcony it is spectacular. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room would have been a nice addition. Overall this is a lovely little hotel to use as a base to explore beautiful Florence and is highly recommended!

A week discovering Tuscany

Posted Feb 7, 2016 on Hotels
This hotel is a great little find. It is in a good location as not to far from the train station and also the city main square is a 10min walk away. You need to paid attention to the warning about access been via stairs to the 3rd floor. This was no problem for us as we fit enough to climb them. The couple that own the hotel are very friendly and helpful. They provide for any requests you make of them. Looking for a good quality hotel but a decent budget price this is the place to stay. Florence is a wonderful city to explore both sides of the river. Plus transport links are good to other Tuscany cities for affordable prices.
