    Ideal location, close to rail station and within walking distance of major attractions. Hotel renovated in the past 12 months to a high standard, retaining the character, but fitted out with modern facilities and super comfortable beds. Rooftop pool and bar ideal for hot evenings and a view of the city. Staff very welcoming and keen to please. Hotel deserves a five star rating. Nothing more I could ask for just continue giving guest the great service that you provide.

    A Great Hotel

    This hotel really impressed us. The staff was very warm and welcoming, Laura, the first member of the staff that we met, was genuine and nice during our check-in. After that, everything was great! The location is incredible, stack in the middle of Piazza Santa Maria Novella, near restaurants, stores, and the center of the square. Everything is so clean and modern, including the rooms and lobby. The rooms were clean and everything was well organized. The rooftop was our favourite. It gives a great view of Florence and is so peaceful when it comes to enjoying a sunbath or a swim. The waiters there were also so great, serving us cold drinks and fresh fruits. The concept where we have to use the key card in the elevator to go wherever we wanted was a little irritating because we always had to get our key cards out which caused a little bit of chaos in a small elevator. The only things that could be improved was the Wi-Fi quality. It really didn’t work. The Air conditiong, didn’t really work either. Had lots of problems with it and had staff come multiple times to fix it. The room service was surprisingly good, but the hot plates should be served 24 hours. Overall, great staff, location, food, cleanliness, and a great ambiance for an enjoyable stay
