Staff co-operation and nice ambience + the roof bar.
Room were a bit small.
Cost of wifi Shower didn't drain Shower head came off Beds were awful
Nice staff and location
I found cockroaches in my room
Excellent breakfast. Very nice rooftop bar with view of the Duomo dome
Ecxessive charge for WiFi. Very small TV screen
Location, bathroom, rooftop terrasse
18 euro wifi, weak range of wifi, uncomfortable beds and pillows, not soundproof rooms, tv barely works
Perfectly-located between the Duomo and Accademia. Staff was helpful. The lobby smelled like lavender.
Location able to walk to all attractions. the female staff was very friendly while checking in. Price resonable for loacation....
Room was a little small to accomadate four adults. Male staff wasnt as friendly as the female staff was night before. Male who checked us out seemed we were bothering him.
The different entrance after 12am. It often took 10-15 minutes for someone to answer the door.
the female receptionist on arrival was very pleasant and welcoming; the other staff were sullen at best! The location is great, the Duomo is at te end of the street. Garage Parking next door
Breakfast was poor even by Italian standards. wifi is extra charge (expensive), so the the safe in the room. Disappointing given the price and it's supposed to be 4 start. You would be able to do better
The hotel is situated in a silent street very close to the main attractions, thus it is an ideal basis for discovering Firenze. The bathroom is small but looks good. The breakfast (I mean the selection) is fine.
Frankly speaking this hotel is rather at 3 star level, not 4. Nothing is very bad, but nothing is outstanding. It is too big to be friendly, there are too many guests and not enough staff member at breakfast time. Parking is possible in the hotel's parking lot, but it is expensive and the car is moved by the staff to a distant (unknown) location.
Breakfast worst so far in Europe
The hotel was very central and the car park next door very convenient
The room was quite small for 4 people but I guess not surprising for such a great location
location is very good.
in the 4 stars hotel, also have 2 or 3 starts rooms. this means my room can not get 4 stars hotel level. when people walking on the stairs, I can hear clearly in my room. bathroom is very very little, just can stand there, can not turn round.
No free Wifi
The location was great
The management of a hotel is a couple that are extremely irresponsible toward the comfort and travel experience of their guests. It took me half an hour to print a page and at the end, due to the very outdated facilities they were unable to accommodate my request. Terrible internet at this hotel with ridiculously high charge. Cheap towels.
Location is good. Special price offered during this visit is also good.
Breakfast is poor. Things couldn't be worse. Some staff wasn't dressed uniform at restaurant. Anyway, don't except too much to the breakfast.
Tv does not work. Air conditioning does nit work well and very trucky. If you open any door or windows . It shuts iff and you have to start the process if turning it on. It does not cool as well.
-Hotel staff were very helpful especially the woman working in the rooftop bar and the night porter. (They went out of their way to help us with train times and routes) -The rooftop bar where you can overlook the cathedral roof and watch the birds. -Decor of the hotel, the place was very well presented (hallways, enterance etc.) -Location close to everything! -Shutters shut out all sound and noise and air con was brill. I had a great nights sleep.
-Breakfast was poor at best, Croissants were stale and put me off eating my meal in the evening there. Very little choice. -The room was small but adequate, a little dark but what you would expect from a city centre hotel. -We got a deal for 187 euros for two nights for 2 people but it was quoted as originally being 800? Which is overpriced for what this hotel is. -Free Wifi would have been nice and especially if paying the high prices quoted. -No information/Maps of the city and staff not that knowleable on where to eat in the city.
Location, security and the rooms.
Wifi internet connection was bad even if there was a fee.
The room was clean and conveniently located.
Internet charges for daily use were expensive and the internet quality was terrible. If you stay ..save money and forget the internet.
Strategic position Very beautiful structure Terrace Bar
The shower is too small Bar food and drink quality was not good enough for a 4 star hotel
Location, just one street from the Duomo, perfect.
You have to pay for WiFi (this is old fashion).
WiFi cost 10e fer day. It's feel like 3 stars.
