The hotel has a very impressive look but it's too far from the train station and main attractions, about 30 to 45 minutes walk. The breakfast is excellent, lots of selections. I wish this place is a little bit closer to attractions. I don't like the hair dryer because it just blowing hot air.
The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the centre and it was nice to get back to the hotel each evening.
The hotel was very clean, the breakfast offered a good selection and the hotel staff were excellent. The decor was very white and in good taste. We asked the staff for a restaurant recommendation and their suggestion turned out to be the best meal we had all week.
Nice hotel in a good location next to the river and close to the Uffizi Gallery. The room was clean, and staff were very professional and polite. Breakfast was good with a lot of variety. I liked this hotel.
Looking for a quick overnight in Florence, I landed on this place since well recommended. It is at the opposite end of the town (so attention: if coming in from the area of the stazioni, bus and train). But it's in a quiet neighborhood on a fairly main drag. Manager/hostess was terrific (Clara and, later, Alessandra). Recommendations for food by the former were spot-on (esp. Konnubio). Shower was great. TV had no English-language news: important for English-speaking travelers. Breakfast was a bit spare.
A large piazza greets visitors arriving at Santa Croce, the principle Franciscan church in Florence. This large complex dates back to the 13th century, and is the burial place for many notable Italians like Michelangelo, Galileo, and Machiavelli. The halls of this church are decorated with frescoes by Giotto.
