Positive Reviews

A fantastic location

Guests like how easy it is to get around when staying at this hotel. They report being able to walk to famous Florence attractions in only a few minutes. They also appreciate how it offers easy access to downtown sights and restaurants yet is still quiet.

Magnificent views from the hotel tower

This property features one of the tallest towers in the city and many guests choose to climb up and check out the spectacular views. There is no lift to reach that part of the hotel, but guests don't mind and say the climb is well worth it. They also like to admire the scenery while sipping beverages from the hotel's rooftop bar.

Professional staff members

Guests agree that the staff members are pleasant and do their best to help. When travellers need recommendations about things to do in the area or tips to help them settle in, the staff members are available to assist.

Negative Reviews

Dated rooms that don't meet expectations

Reviews mention how the rooms need sprucing up due to old age. Guests also give feedback to say that the rooms are not quite as nice as they expected based on information they had seen before arrival. They say the rooms are quite small and not always sufficiently maintained, often featuring amenities that don't work as anticipated, such as the climate control.

Breakfast is not the best

The morning meal at this property has some shortcomings. For example, guests say there's a lack of variety and they'd like more choices.
