Positive Reviews

Short walk to Florence city centre

Guests have the nice option to take the bus going to the city centre, or enjoy a leisurely walk of 20 to 25 minutes. Those who stayed here loved that they were able to walk around Florence. Moreover, the property is handy because it has easy access to the bus and the main railway station.

Hassle-free breakfast!

The free breakfast is delivered in each room- a nice and personal service which the guests appreciated. Meal is composed of various pastries, biscuits, yoghurt and coffee, which may not be totally adequate but are delicious and enjoyable all the same according to guests.

Informative receptionists

Guests who needed restaurant recommendations and reservations had no difficulties as the front desk staffs were completely able to arrange their dining for them. The receptionists were also informative, and have always updated their guests about the necessary bits about the property and the area.

Negative Reviews

Insufficient signs leading to the property

While the property has a convenient location near the city centre, it can be a little difficult to locate the first time as there are no specific instructions on how to reach it. Many guests also commented that the hallway leading to the property can get really dark and scary to cross at night.

Rooms have poor lighting

Many guests experienced returning to their rooms with a burnt out light, and were unable to get a new one until the next day. Some of them were given a lamp with a dim light, which barely did anything to resolve the poor lighting issue.

Near a busy street!

Guests had to maintain the windows of their bedroom closed as the property is facing a busy street. They also noted that the noise of passing cars can enter their rooms.
