Great Base to Explore Firenze From
Posted Jun 22, 2015 on Hotels
Fabio and Laura did go beyond our expectations on many fronts. Our reservation made in September 2014 was cancelled by the hotel days before our arrival due to a credit card issue, a total surprise to us as we had been already 3 weeks into our journey and never had a credit card issue. We very nearly had to chase another hotel in Florence.
They showed us the last room left and we decided to take it. Not quite the balcony room we had booked. However, the next day Fabio and his staff moved us to an upper floor and balcony room.
The breakfast room was quaint and had the cold offerings as most other breakfast included properties. The lattes and cappuccinos were great for sure.
They recommended and made a booking for us at a real Tuscan cuisine restaurant in Lastra a Signa and we were not disappointed, it was excellent.
This hotel is located in Scandicci a suburb of Firenze is an excellent value. Laura directed us to a short 3 Km drive to a free parking lot that places you right next to a modern comfortable commuter train that takes you to the main train station in Firenze in about 18 minutes for 1.20 Euro each. A price that can't be beat. From there you can explore Firenze at will and experience the area around Scandicci away from the maddening crowd of Firenze.
We would stay there again if we ever went back to Firenze.
