Stayed for an evening
Loved our stay. We only needed somewhere comfy and reliable as we only needed the room for one night. Everything was clean and fresh during our stay. Upon arriving, I discovered our room had a beautiful balcony view of the top of the Duomo - something I did not anticipate when I booked! That was a lovely surprise. We were so pleased to also have a full breakfast included with our stay. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to stay within the heart of Florence :)

Great location
The hotel was a great location, walking distance of all the major stuff to do in Florence. The breakfast was very nice and plenty to choose from. The only negative is that we had a leaky toilet which woke us up during the night
