            We had a very nice large double room over looking the river..I would not do that again..the sirens woke us up ALLLL night long..friendly staff..however, they did not tell us about the time change and we almost missed our flight..

            Great staff very helpful rooms a good size very clean and quite due to double glazing on the windows.the rooms have everything you need in them,even free mini bar that they fill every day would stay again.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The staff’s eagerness to accommodate us was the first thing I appreciated. The room was very clean and the ambiance of it, in fact of the entire hotel was a plus. Booking on line, I made errors twice on our needs and they were very patient and made the adjustments with no complaints. We walked to most of the places we were interested in seeing and were given clear instructions on directions. The breakfast was something to write home about. If I am ever in Florence again this will be my choice of hotels.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Very friendly/accommodating staff and clean room.

          • Single
            8.2

            The Hotel looks directly onto the River Arno. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was obviously very luxurious about 30 years ago and while somewhat worn now has been well maintained.

            The shower was a bit weird. There was no curtain.

            The staff availability and the room

            The acoustic isolation, the noise

            7.8

            staff were very hospitable and very helpful. appeared to be a family run business and very friendly. breakfast was great, location very convenient for florence city centre.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Location was nice. Right on the river and close to all the sites. Parking was convenient and easy. Breakfast was pretty good. Nice staff too, as they made all the arrangements for our baby cot and were ready for our arrival.

            Bed wasn't very comfortable.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Very nice decor and good size room with King bed. Great terrace overlooking the river. Very quiet at night. Secure car parking with not the usual charges. Staff very accommodating and helpful.

            Bed very hard. Flat hard pillow didn't make for comfortable nights sleep.

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            The location was an easy walk to all the major sites as well as to restaurants. It is possible to walk to the train station. Breakfast was good... excellent capuccino!

            Very old and tired decor. It needs a complete renovation. Our room was very hot even though the heat was not on so we had to keep the window open and put up with very loud traffic noise.

          • Single
            6.2

            Nice staff / Free parking which is a plus in Firenze / Not too far from downtown

            Old fashion hotel but can seen has an good experience ;-)) / Breakfirst could be better but still ok

          • Couple
            6.6

            The staff was very friendly and helped us with restaurant reservations etc.

            The hotel has certainly seen better days and is looking a bit run down and smells a bit old. The maids did not replace used shower gels etc and the gels etc where in very old fashioned sachets. For all of that the hotel was too expensive.

          • Couple
            9.2

            Beautiful balcony view overlooking the river! Great location, with friendly staff and beautiful hotel.
