We liked the location of the hotel. It was very close to the train station and the Mercato Centrale. It was very walkable to the essential sights in Florence. There was a cafe across the street that we had breakfast at every morning. The staff are friendly and helpful. They helped us with our luggage. You can leave your luggage with them if you arrive before your room is ready and after you check out. The cons for me is the noise. The rooms are not insulated and we had a hard time sleeping because the street was busy and you can hear everything and everyone outside. The other thing I would say is a con is the staff availability. You leave the keys at the front desk when you go out, and when there is only one person working and they are busy helping someone, and you had to wait to ask for your room key to go to your room. Next time, maybe we wouldn't leave the room key every-time we stepped out. This is the same with getting your luggage.

I love how the hotel was so accessible to everywhere. 5 min walk from the Duomo, a corner away from Central market. Less than 10 min away from the train station all by foot! And when you walk out the hotel turn right and next street is full of cute restaurants and shops! Staff was great, friendly and accommodating! The breakfast was good. Plenty of variety to choose from! My room had a balcony and the view was ok. I was expecting a Duomo view as was advertised but I got different one because my room was on the other side of the building but I still enjoyed and gave me a great Italian vibe feel. Cons were the bathroom- small but workable- and the AC- went there at peak of summer and wish it could have cooled my room more but I was comfortable as I draw the curtains shut. My favourite was the rooftop bar- 360 views of the city and highlight was Domes of the Duomo and the Cappelle Medicee and the tower of the Palazzo Veccio. I enjoyed my chill time. They make the best Drinks! Specially the classic aperol spritz! Servers were so friendly! Over all experience was excellent will book the place again!

Unfortunately, my check in was challenging. I was given Room #1, which had a strong bad odor and a major leak in the ceiling of the bathroom. I asked to be moved to Room #2 which also had a bad odor (sewer smell). I was moved (all within 24 hours) to Room #3 which was satisfactory, if run down. The staff couldn't have been more cooperative, they were lovely in fact. But the place needs TLC and better amenities (there were basically none). I was told there was drinking water in my room. The room refrigerator wouldn't even open. I never found water. The location is very central and everything is walkable. The staff was most helpful. For the money, it is acceptable. But I would have preferred if it hadn't been so rundown. And I understand that COVID repercussions affect all of this. I think the # star rating is generous.
