    Fabulous

    Eco designed hotel, in the heart of downtown Florence, close to station and walking access to most of the famous visiting cites. The management staff was very nice, courteous and helpful. I favored this hotel in place of others since being environmentally clean.

    They need to pay attention in improving the shower area which has a half door. It would have been better rather to replace it by a shower curtain to avoid water spillage. On the roof there were water leakage spots which were clearly visible. This was observed by my wife. Improving these would justify paying Euro120 per night for the stay.

    The room was huge for Italy. Staff was very nice. Cute little wine bar off to the side of reception was convenient. Ac was good!

    Lumpy queen bed was two singles pushed together. Pretty typical but I still was not stoked on it. Blackish mold across ceiling in showers.

    It was a very centric hotel right downtown Florence. The service was excellent, we had a very nice welcoming from the staff who helped us with all our needs. There is a fridge in the room and the bathroom is really clean, elevator available, good breakfast. Although we were downtown I dfid not hear any noise. The breakfast was really abundant and a lot of variety was offered. Very nice place to stay downtown, and at a very convenient price.

    It was a little bit expensive to park but if you go without a car is excellent choice.

    Excellent location close to all sightseeing & shopping places + railway station. Very polite and helpful staff. Clean room.

    My double appeared to be very small even for 1 person, I could not open the closet normally because its door was blocked by a bed. Old furniture + I could hear all the sounds from a corridor

    Friendly, extremely helpful staff. Clean rooms and bathrooms equipped with everything one might need during a tourist trip. Internet connection available in rooms for a low price. Pleasant breakfast with enough choices to suit different needs. Perfect location, close to the main attractions and the train station, yet quiet. Overall, a great experience.

    The staff were brilliant, so helpful in everyway. The location was excellent and so easy to see everything in Florence. The buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room and was very good. The room and ensuite was very clean, small but perfect for a solo traveller. I would def stay there again, great value for money.

    Room with a view over a quiet courtyard and the Duomo, very charming in its way -- simple and elegant with very clean bathroom and nice tilework. Most of the staff was excellent, location couldn't be better ... a real bargain for the amount we spent through Booked.net.

    Air conditioning, elevator, walking distance to the train station, well soundproof windows so noise from the street stays out, little fridge in the room.

    One of the receptionists was unfriendly and seemed annoyed with any questions. The room was way too small for 4 people, it was difficult to move between the beds even and no place to put the luggage. Ironing was not possible in the room because light would blow out. Sockets in the room were hanging out of the walls. Metal shelf in the shower was rusty. The room smelled.
