Incredible hotel in a perfect location close to all the main sights. Staff were so polite and helpful, made us feel welcome right from when we arrived. Breakfast is a super selection of dishes and options with great service. I’d thoroughly recommend this hotel!

Fantastic hotel, great location and amazing roof!
Beautiful hotel with exceptional views over the piazza and an amazing roof deck. Reception staff was very helpful and accommodating. Room was comfortable and the bathroom was huge, for some reason. Also had an actual walk-in closet which would have been great for a longer stay. Breakfast had lots of good-tasting choices. Location is perfect for exploring Florence - far enough away from the biggest tourist attractions but still within easy walking distance. Several nice restaurants are in the immediate vicinity.

Just perfect!
We love this hotel, it’s just close enough to everything and quiet at the same time. You’re close to the main train station, so you don’t have lug your luggage around everywhere on cobblestone streets. Honestly, it’s the worst thing to do with your luggage. Also, this hotel is close to all the attractions of the city from the Duomo to the Arno to all the museums and churches. Seriously, we have stayed several times in different seasons and our stay is consistently great. Shout out to the staff!

10/10 Exceptional

Great hotel located close enough to the train station and within 15~30 minutes walk to all major attractions. Thanks to Expedia, we got a free room upgrade and the room was huge - separate sitting area with a daybed/sofa. The only downside will be the bed linens, which were too rough for my liking.

A great find!
Location is a big positive in terms of proximity to train station, nice restaurants and within walking distance to most attractions. Next to a cathedral so the regular church bells add charm to the ambience. We had a family suite that had everything we need, both a shower and bath tube as well as a cloakroom for opening 2 big luggages. Thank you shout to Aleesia at the front counter for helping us with various bookings and meal suggestions! Pasta and T-bone was delicious…
