    The hotel room was clean and spacious, with plenty of lighting and an arched ceiling. The hotel itself is in a good location across from the Arno River, not far from the main tourist sites (but a bit of a ways from the train station). The hotel staff were super nice and helpful.

    Nice building. Beautiful location. Tasteful room and friendly staff. Nice breakfast buffet.

    No wireless Internet. 10 euros extra for baby cot is too much!

    Our room was 105 and looked directly out over the River Arno and a lovely view. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable, with a pleasing decor. The road outside was not noisy at night as the room has double glazing and shutters. There is air conditioning too. The staff were fantastic, really welcoming and very helpful at all times They were glad to help with our Italian!. The location is perfect for walking around Florence and is very close to all the best sights and museums. We would gladly stay there again.

    we have no complaints about this hotel. It was excellent.

    Close to Arno River.

    I don't understand how this hotel got such great reviews when the beds are very uncomfortable... They are roll-out mattresses, with horrible springs. The woman at the front desk staff did not have a good attitude. We would ask simple questions very politely, and she would respond with very "matter-of-fact" short answers. Not the best attitude to have if you are working in customer service! We had just checked out after staying there for two days. We came back 1 hour later to pick up our luggage, and my husband asked if they had a restroom downstairs he could use, and the woman replied with "Do you have a room here?" Really? Are you going to forget a face that easily when you run a small hotel? Maybe she was having a bad day, but either way, it didn't make our arrival to or departure from Florence a great one. The male front desk attendant was very pleasant, however. We were on the 1st floor, right underneath the wooden staircase, and could hear people walking up and down. Didn't try breakfast, didn't feel very welcome in the hotel so opted to eat in town. The hotel is very dated, and felt old.

    The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable.

    The "free internet" wasn't wireless, and I had a lot of difficulty setting it up.

    The location.

    I didn't like the room: dirty, dusty, shady, old and not stylish furniture, bad pillow, bad mattress on a bed without wooden frame, old tv, old stained carpet, bedside...ex-radio(?!) I assume, small courtyard view. The shower with a rusty drain and no handshower. Old and dirty blanket - I was affraid that I could touch it by mistake. My car was kept in an improvised parking and I took it with cat paws all over. I had my wedding aniversary those days and I'm sorry to say that this hotel ruined it.
