        I enjoyed the atmosphere and layout of the room with the living area and bathroom being downstairs and the bedroom being upstairs in the loft. The hotel is virtually within walking distance of everything you want to see. The complimentary breakfast was a definite plus. The hotel staff was couteous and helpful for the most part.

        I found the bathroom outdated and not that comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was inadequate and the tub was not in alignment with the shower head.

        Breakhast was very nice and I like it

      • Older travelers

        It is a beautiful hotel with a marvelous breakfast, which is important to us. We enjoyed our room with a lovely balcony over the Arno. We were only there one night so we have limited knowledge. They graciously called a taxi for us to the airport and it arrived promptly.

        We prefer smaller, more intimate hotels. This was by far the largest that we stayed in on our trip to Italy.

        Their Christmas dinner was delicious.

        Although we requested a quiet room by email beforehand, they offered us one side of a connecting rooms. There was a door between the next room, so we heard almost every noises from the neighbor, ( TV sound, voices, even the sound of sneezes!) We asked them to move us more comfortable room, but it was too late as most of rooms were already full at the Christmas time. So finally we canceled our reservation for the rest of stays and move to another hotel. And more, When we went to their restaurant for breakfast just before they close, their waiters started putting away their buffet although we are still eating! We couldn't take any warm dishes or additional bread, even coffee was away which was so bad!

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Excellent location, staff welcoming and very helpful, confortable room with a wodnerful view!!!

        As before we found the quality of food provided at the restaurant (we had lunch on arrival and breakfast each day) was not of the standard expected.

      • Single
        8.8

        I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is an old hotel but it is very well maintained. the staff was superb, reception, bar, breakfast staff, all really helpful and smiley. I had a single room on the 4th floor with a balcony (magnificent view over the river). The room was very pleasant, not too spacious but more than enough for one person. the location is superb. walking distance to everything!

        Only a shower head in the bathroom of the single room (I got a glance of a double room and they do have baths instead of showers).

        Helpful staff!

        Daily breakfast was the same and did not vary.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Very nice hotel with lovely views of the Arno river. We enjoyed our stay there. Large rooms with big bathrooms; unusual for europe.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Perfect location near Santa Croce. Comfortable and spacious room with magnificent view on the Arno. Helpful staff. Safe car parking.

        Internet Wifi was available in the room but the connection was quite weak. The breakfast is not good enough for this price.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        We stayed for 3 nights in hotel, location is great - 5 minutes walk to Santa Croce and yet, along the river, quiet and not crowded side. All main historical sites were in within 10-15 minutes of leisure walk from the hotel. In overall, the hotel is old-fashioned, but tidy, and well looked after.

        Sound insulation is poor in the room. Bathroom had no fan extractor, only ventilation in the wall. A bit "shy" room, but still comfortable.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Upon check-in, the hotel upgraded our room without our asking. The desk person showed us to the room and we were overwhelmed by the beautiful view from our enormous balcony; the spires of the Church of St Croce filled the foreground with The Duomo to the left. Beautuful by day, spectacularly light by night with a background of twinkling lights dotting the rolling hills of Tuscany in the background. The concierge was very helpful, the hotel lovely.

      • Couple
        10.0

        The view from the room was breaktaking. Santa Croce and Il Duomo both just outside the window. The staff was very helpful and classy. The room was much better than we expected. Breakfast was very good as well. Cleaner and more luxurious than we expected. Overall our best stay in Europe by far.

      • Single
        9.2

        Very nice room with balcony and fabulous city view. Friendly staff and good conference hall for meetings.

        A bit cold in a room even when you turn on the air conditioner.

      • Single
        8.8

        Close to the historical centre of Florence yet just outside the crowded area: an ideal place to recover your energy for the next day.

      • Group of friends
        4.4

        The location. It was conveniently close to the sights we wanted to see and the maratona.

        This is not a 4 star hotel by any stretch of imagination.
