Felt lucky to get a room here during our stay in Florence. A 10-15 minute taxi ride from the train station, this hotel is not centrally located but so well worth this minor inconvenience...and there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel if you aren't much into walking. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Our room was so cute and the bathroom tile was fun. Very quiet at night. We had our own balcony. The room frig was stocked with soda and water as well as chips and some other snacks. The hotel has 'happy hour' every night from 6ish to 8 with free drinks and snacks and a nice sitting area both inside and out. LOTS of snacks -- mini pizzas, potato chips, mini sandwiches, and all sorts of other things. You could make a dinner out of it if you wanted. Breakfast was really nice -- and included. When we left, they gifted us with a nice pen for my husband and some divine hand cream for me. Would definitely try to stay here again if we are ever back in Florence.
“I was saying to my wife every small hotel in the world would benefit from sending their management here to study how to run a small hotel in the most perfect way. They went out of their way to accommodate my wife’s gluten free diet. They even made her a special little gluten free pizza of her own at their free happy hour. The free mini bar was fantastic. At night once you shut the windows and pushed the button for the shutters to come down it was so quite. We had a small problem with our car reservation and the front desk let us use their phone and assisted us with our reservation with great success at no charge. When I asked to pay for the call she reminded they offer a free 20 minute phone call. Local restaurant recommendations were spot on. I could go on forever about how amazing our stay was but I’ll leave a few surprises for you. Don’t think twice about booking here they are even better than all their great reviews. ”
