We loved this place!! :) Paul (front desk) was so nice and very helpful with the check-in. Location is great and within walking distance to the Dome, close to shopping and dining. It was a very nice hotel, excellent service and a great complimentary breakfast buffet. Easy access to public transportation that would take you anywhere in Florence.

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

It isn’t as close to the station as advertised. The room is too small for two persons. There are very few plug points for charging devices. Wifi is not free and the signal is very poor. I had to use my cellular network for internet and that was very expensive. The room rates were exorbitant and definitely not value for money. Overall a terrible ey
