      10.0

      The location was perfect for walking to all the sites we were interested in, i.e., the Duomo, Uffizi, Academia, Ponte Vecchio, and most of the piazzas. The buffet breakfast was excellent and plentiful.

    • Couple
      7.0

      The complementary drink in the bar was a nice treat and the seamless combination of modern and traditional styling made for an enjoyable stay.

      The tax was EU$4 per person per night which we were told was standard but of the 2 weeks we spent in Italy, it was the highest hotel tax we paid.

    • Couple
      9.6

      I loved the location in fact it is right in the heart of florence even to major sightseeing monuments

    • Family with children
      9.2

      The staff are very friendly and willing to help in any way the can. The location of the hotel is very good since you have access to the city centre plus a lot of good places to eat.

    • Single
      5.4

      Awful front desk manners. Did not inform me of building works at 7am in the morning - first call was: we cannot do anything. After going down to reception, they said it wasnt their building works and wasnt outside my room. I filmed the builder and then showed them and they just stared at the film realising they were wrong. They only offered me a 5% reduction on total price after a few discussions and looked as if they were doing me a favour.

    • Single
      5.8

      This hotel has no iron available on Sunday. It is totally unacceptable in a 4 stars hotel. The staff (with certain exceptions) was generally not helpful and had no "can do" attitude whatsoever. What's more, at check- out the receptionist commited 3 errors which, if I was not attentive, would cost twice as much as I was supposed to pay.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Pleasent staff very helpfull

      Oposite a nightclub first night hardly slept after buying earplugs no problem

    • Group of friends
      6.2

      Location is good. Nice but very cold design. There are better hotels in Florence.

      One, slowly moving lift. Room is very small. Hotel is very small and look like it is home of someone.

    • Couple
      5.4

      sauna

      both me & my partner got bitten by bedbugs in this hotel, my partner had an allergic reaction to the bites & we had to see assistance from a doctor, there was a very strong smell of sewerage especially in the jacuzzi area, breakfast was awful, really bad value for money overall

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      The location was great and the bedrooms were very comfortable.

      The choice of the breakfast buffet was very limited.

    • Group of friends
      5.8

      the location

      The customer service from the staff at the reception and also the fact that there is a night club outside the hotel which is noisy at nights (not the hotels fault)

    • Family with children
      6.6

      The location

      Breakfast, bed comfort, no hot water in bathroom faucet

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      The hotel is in a very good location and it is very stylish.

      We had problems with the hot water in the morning. We also had problems every day with breakfast. You are greeted with dirty tables and nowhere to seat. With very few exceptions breakfast staff were very rude and unhelpful, and basic things like hot water and orange juice had run out every morning by 9.30. The suits are lovely and spacious. The showers in the bedrooms are disappointing.

    • Older travelers
      6.2

      Very noisy. Had 2 nights there, moved rooms after the first night and then was kept up for several hours the second night.

    • Couple
      5.8

      Rooms and location is great.

      Very noisy. There is a nightclub next to the hotel and you can hear the crowds until 4am. Although we have requested a garden view room which our rate allowed during booking, our request was not accommodated.
