    Very nice, pleasant and cosy hotel at a perfect location. The room was very spacious with a big double bed, decorated with taste. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The terrace is wonderful, too bad it was too cold to enjoy it extensively. The heating system functioned relatively well (considering it is Italy, often without proper heating systems, but only an air conditioner blowing hot air). We would be glad to come back.

    The bathroom was very small and narrow with horrifyingly noisy ventilating fan which goes on with the light. The walls between the rooms were very thin. Two nights out of three we had to use the ear plugs because the neighbors, who were not very loud, but we could still hear them.

    The hotel is in the heart of Firenze center right next to the old bridge, Great location.

    Room was very disappoiting. It didnt have a window, felt really dark and very small. You will expect more for a 3 start hotel and over priced.

    We picked the suite as the price is reasonable and the room is huge. The room is located at the ground floor which is separated from the main building of the hotel and it has our own entrance which is convenient. Breakfast is served at the hotel which you could bring the food up to the roof which has an excellent view. Breakfast selection is pretty good for Italian standard. The shower is excellent and bathroom is very big although a bit dark. Bed is huge and comfortable, and wifi works reasonably well. The location is just a minute walk across the Ponte Vecchio which is very convenient but not too touristy.

    Dark bathroom. I assume the rooms of the rest of the hotel are much older and smaller.

    Great location and a fabulous double tiered roof garden overlooking the Pitti Palace and Boboli gardens. A half block from the Ponte Vecchio. We found some great little restaurants and shops. The staff were very helpful and provided a wonderful breakfast and tourist info.

    This was a unique hotel which as a former school had a lot of stairs depending upon where your room was. Next time we would book a little larger room and ask the level of the location. As 70 and 75 we came away feeling pretty fit !!

    The localization of the hotel is spectacular, the morning cappuccino on the upper tarase with the perfect 360* view of Florence just made my stay. Lovely and helpful staff with very good English.

    Rooms need refreshing. Our family rooms bathrooms vere more 2* than anything else with some malfunctioning hydraulics :/

    Location, location, location. Steps from the Ponte Vecchio. Beautifull terrace. Excellent front desk service. Very Europeon and totally in charachter. The breakfast was good.

    The washroom was small in our room. Too small.Possibly other rooms were larger. Not suitable for those with accesibility challenges.

    Everyone was very nice and everything was great. it was perfect for shopping area, and everything was in walking distance. The rooms were very clean. Rooftop terrance provides an excellent view of Florence. We ate breakfast out on the terrance , it was wonderful. Breakfast was good.and the staff were very helpful.

    A lot of stairs in the hotel - a bit hard with large luggage.

    The location was perfect and all the staff were very helpful. The area is amongst the locals and not the tourist traps. Everything is easy walking distance. We found so many great restaurants in the many piazzas around the hotel. The rooftop is truly amazing and the bar and restaurant were both great facilities of the hotel, the bar staff were very friendly.

    The bed and room were comfortable, the only suggestion we would provide is the showers could have an upgrade and supply better water prsessure as they can be seen as outdated.

    Location is great, not many tourists around, and all historical locations are 5 minutes walking far.

    Air conditioning worked very bad, it was very hot in the room. A lot of stairs in the hotel - a bit hard with large luggage. Breakfast is poor.

    Excellent hotel in great location. Hotel staff had the right balance of not being intrusive while being at hand when needed. Roof top terrace races it above ( no pun intended) a good value hotel to something a bit special!

    Great location beautiful view of Florence from deck. Crew was excellent and went out of their way to ensure a great time for my family

    The air conditioning units in two of the rooms were very weak. That was one of the main reasons we picked these rooms

  • Family with children

    The location of the hotel was perfect. It was charming and quiet but very close to all of the popular sites in Florence. The upstairs terrace was perfect for a rest at the end of a long day of site-seeing. The staff made reservations and recommendations happily. They were friendly and helpful. Our 2 rooms were charming - one large with french doors to a balcony/rail and and plenty of floor space and the other grotto like and the windows opened onto an inner court. The bathrooms were large and well lit and the beds were very comfortable. The entire hotel was clean and thankfully well air conditioned.

    The breakfast was not very good but easily replaced by several neighborhood cafes a few steps away that were fabulous.

    Location and price was great. Perfect for the active family. Close to great sites, shopping and food. Old 16th century building with the feel of living in the past. Great terrace setting for drinks and food. Very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Very safe environment.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is in a perfect location in Florence, just across the Ponte Vecchio. I was there in wet, cold weather and could not use the roof garden for drinks or breakfast, but the views were wonderful and it would be a delight in summer. The 3-bed room was large and spacious.

    It was very wet when I was there and there was no place to dry wet clothes and shoes.

  • Older travelers

    1) The view was beautiful from the outside bar/restaurant 2) The location right next to Palazza Pitti and near Ponte Vecchio made getting around very easy, and there were lots of shops, restaurants and a grocery store close by 3) free internet 4) in room refrigerator

    1) There was a lift to the reception area, but you still have to go up some stairs to reach the lift, which will not hold two people and luggage unless small people and small luggage. There is no lift between the reception area and the floors with the rooms (exception of a few rooms on the level of the reception), so be prepared to carry your own luggage down the stairs to your room, and back up on your way out. 2) The rooms were very spartan and plain, and floor was not particulary clean. Only two squeeze sleeves of shampoo and 2 small bars of soap were given to us for 2 nights, although I am sure if I asked for more, I would have been given it. 3) I left thinking the rooms were 1-2 stars, the location 4 stars, and the view 5 stars. Other visitors could see the view by going to the restaurant or bar without having to stay at the hotel
