    The central location and swimming pool were a real bonus. Will certainly stay there again.

    Room was a little in need of fresh paint - a little worn out but location and staff and rooftop make up any minor issues

    The rooftop pool and bar came in handy after hours of sight seeing. The staff was friendly and professional. The sheets were of excellent quality, the bathroom was very modern, the decor was lovely.

    Though the view was lovely, there was a lot of noise at night on the Piazza...if you book a room here ask which rooms have less noise at night.

    Amazing stay with work friends and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to others. The roof top pool is the highlight!

    The great location placed the heart of beautiful Florence within a 15 minute walk, and together with the friendly staff, beautiful room and comfy bed, made for a perfect two-night stay.

    Nothing to complain about.

    staff is great they arranged a trip for me to Pisa tower, breakfast is good, location is excellent close to every things of the city.

    a bit noisy during night when sleeping if you are in the side of the piazza, i tried to use the swimming pool twice but it was always full and no space ( small swimming pool ), the lift a bit slow, room is not spacious comparing to the value of the money.

    The location is great! Walking distance from the train station, to the Duomo, to the Ponte Vecchio. We had a family suite, very smartly laid out: the five of us on three half floors

    Nothing. We would get back there in a heart beat!

    Breakfast and other hotel staff were lovely. Comfy beds and nice large bathrooms for European standard.

    The luggage Porter would not leave until my husband tipped him. He kept his foot in the door way so he had access to our room and would not leave. We had little pull along bags and he snatched my husbands out of his hand and insisted on taking it. (The other 3 in our party had to take their luggage) We have travelled extensively through France Greece Switzerland and Italy and never once have experienced inappropriate behavior! Until here!

    Location was within all major sights- we walked everywhere. Rooftop pool and deck were unique and after sightseeing was great to cool off - kids loved it. Breakfast was excellent. Views of duomo from room.

    We were in top rooms which you heard pool jets at night loudly.

    Stunning views, fantastic staff, and excellent food - everyone was very helpful. Extremely central, within walking distance of everything. The staff spoilt us and made it a very memorable weekend.

    Excellent location and base to explore Florence on foot from. Practical and easy walking distance of 'mere' minutes to and use from the train and bus station. Great breakfast to start the day and the evening/night-time view of the city from the rooftop pool is worth the stay alone.

    I liked the way the staff were there to please you, and help you, especially the staff in the morning where you had breakfast. The older lady (although not old) was such a lovely lady and guided the younger ones, which they gave her back with respect!!!! It was so nice to be greeted buy such nice staff, which made our stay so much nicer.

    There was nothing I didn't like!

    Staff, central locatio

    Had bag taken whilst there. No one really bothered seemed more interested how it would reflect in the hotel. Breakfast very poor value although staff in the breakfast room were lovely. Plus wifi awful. Pool way too small and not available on the Saturday we were there

    The location was great. The roof top pool was a bonus. The breakfast was surprisingly good with a fair bit of choice. The free drink for the family (including Cocktails) at the Pool bar was very welcome. Our room faced on to the Santa Maria Novella Square..good view.!

    The Hotel was overpriced and dated. It resembled a 3*. Not enough beds or seats around the pool. We booked a 2 bed suite we got room 113. Room was ok but one bathroom & toilet between 4 people was a squeeze. Outside our balcony every morning at 7am we were woken by workmen unloading tables & chairs for the restaurant below. Extremely noisy.!

    Overall excellent location, pleasant atmosphere, very friendly and very helpful staff, great view, good breakfast, and generally a good place to be.

    Thin doors, allowing all the noise from neighbors and passers-by to disturb guests. We could overhear conversations from next room, their TV, toilet flushes and hair dryers.

    Easy walking distance to Florence's major attractions. Great rooftop pool and deck. Great breakfast. Some of the rooms are big and with great light and view of square, others small and without view at all.

    Some of the rooms are very small and without much light.
