    Can't wait to be back:)

    This hotel's location is about 5 min walk from the train station and 5 min to the center. Win-win. We were able to keep our luggages in their storage before our check-in time of 1pm. And yes, they warned us by email that 1pm was their checkin time.Despite being in an old building ( which all hotels are) the interior decoration Meets the standard. The room we had was for 5 people, two doubles and a twin beds. Very spacious, very clean, smells nice, wall and ceiling decor were fabulous. This hotel anticipated the needs of five people who will use the bathroom at the same time having 2 showers that can be used. Breakfast they served were plenty in the buffet. Meat, cereals, eggs and cakes. It was very good. Francesca and Beatrice were very helpful. They got us a tour for the next day by just picking up the phone and booking us. Francesca recommended a good restaurant for our dinner who served a juicy Florentine steak. We loved our stay here and would like to be back again. Thank you Francesca and Beatrice.

    Unexpectedly charming

    Easy to reach and great value hotel by the train station. A surprisingly nice 3*, seems more like a 4*, with very friendly staff and little perks like snacks and water out all day.

    This hotel was very conveniently located from the train station, which is the main reason why we picked it. We arrived via train from Venice and it was a very short and easy walk with our hand luggage. The hotel staff were very nice and check in was easy. Our room was HUGE, especially for European standards. The giant tub was wonderful for an evening soak after a long day of walking. It also had a separate shower. The bed, however, was very firm. It felt more like a plank of wood and the pillows were also very uncomfortable for me. (I usually can sleep on anything, though my husband had no complaints about the bed). The AC worked well but we did get bitten up by mosquitos (not sure how they entered as we kept the window closed). Staff were helpful in printing our Duomo tickets for us. Breakfast was also nice as it saved us time in the mornings. Breakfast included hard boiled eggs, cured meats and cheese, toast and croissants, cereal, coffee, and juice. Pretty standard fare for Europe.
