Positive Reviews

Perfect location

Guests consistently rate the hotel's location as excellent. Being set in the heart of Florence means less time travelling to top sights. Guests love the short walk to the main attractions.

Friendly staff

This family-run hotel is reported to shine in the customer service department, with many guests commenting the way the staff ensures satisfaction by going above and beyond. Weary travellers even note occasions of the hosts assisting them with carrying heavy luggage to the guest rooms.

Tip top shape

Patrons commend the housekeeping staff for keeping rooms neat and tidy. Guests are happy to report the rooms are spotlessly clean and bathrooms display a high standard of hygiene.

Negative Reviews

Elevator absence

Guests say that it would be nice to have a lift up to this third-floor hotel. Many reviews show travellers being dissatisfied in finding out that they need to walk up several flights of stairs to reach their room — an issue which can be less than desirable after a long day of sightseeing.

Smoky hallways

Cigarette smoke is an unwelcome smell for some guests. It appears that not all those who stay here abide by the "No smoking" signs posted throughout. Hallways can be smoke-filled at times, but guests have no complaints about unpleasant smells in their rooms.

Basic accommodations

Guests describe rooms as modestly furnished, with the absence of things like a fridge and coffee maker being problematic for some.
