1 hour delay in delivery of the car left in custody at the hotel has caused serious inconvenience on the way to the airport and almost loss of return fligh.
+although we mentioned a non smoker room, we were attributed a smoker room. We were in 3 people room but the third bed was so uncomfortable. But after a complaint to the reception we changed the room in 2 night to clear all this issues
Marvellous location and friendly and attentive staff
Was not warned about the construction work, though the noise and inconvenience was minimal
After arriving without my luggage the staff looked after me and took ownership of the problem by ringing the airport, organising to receive my suitcase so that I could join my tour and leaving a message on my return that all was well. My room was comfortable, light and spacious with plenty of room and a bathtub! The buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied and the location convenient to the sights and tour meeting spots. Bravo Minerva!
I just hope that the renovations currently in progress don't take away from the unique warmth and character of the hotel.
The location is very convenience. It closes to train station and sights. The square is beautiful. They have very nice rooftop also.
A wonderful hotel in a great location. Had a 2 room suite with 20 ft ceilings. Staff wonderful.
Some noise from the piazza.
Enjoyed everything about our short stay - from check-in to check out. Room was surprisingly spacious and there was a bath, which made me happy. Was particularly impressed it was not part of a chain and they paid special attention to guests while they are doing renovations - good communication and extra service.
Location, friendly staff
Stayed from Nov 12-17 2014 no air condtioning because the front desk told us it was off season even though the weather was unseasonably warm. This wouldn't have been a problem if we would have been able to open the windows but there were no screens and we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. Best they could do is give us a fan but with the windows closed our stay was very uncomfortable to say the least.
Location fantastic Excellent breakfast Quirky styling
Wooden /tiled floors mean you can hear a case in the room above being wheeled at 5 am or footsteps in the corridor outside your room at 3 am very clearly. Im not a light sleeper but it felt noisy.
noise in between rooms
Location, great breakfast, attentive and helpful staff. Lovely stay... Best experience of the trip!
Noisy unloading in the morning and the loud music played by the band at the bar opposite the hotel square.
check-in was smooth, the room was HUGE! Breakfast was good
Very close to everything , walking and exploring from here is easy
Loved the location of the hotel. So close to all the major sights. Great views from the terrace. Excellent facilities for a family.
Noisy in a morning with laundry deliveries outside and under our room so woken very early.
We booked a double room just 5 days before arrival and were more than surprised when we were given a suite. This hotel is PERFECT.
- Requested and received a room with a front view. Nice location overlooking Piazza d' Santa Maria Novela. - Easy walk from main train station and also easy access to main Florence sites. - Generous morning breakfast.
- Bathroom was particularly tight even for 1. - Pillows are typical of Italy and not very comfortable.
The lady at the reception was very helpful when I asked her to change my room cause it was a bit small for me, she was kind enough to move to me to a much bigger room
Good location & the rooftop pool & bar was nice to have & make use of in the evenings.
It's an impersonal hotel. Nothing wrong with it but we weren't really made to feel that we were being looked after either.
Location overlooking the square, super breakfast, cleanliness, helpful reception staff.
arrival of noisy music-makers in the square late in the evening.
Too much noise outside the hotel throughout the night. People was playing music. Complain for several time to front desk n the responses is they can not do anything. They said they call the police but they won't come. Not sure what is that meant.
Excellent location. Close to railway station; close to city centre.
Noisy square during the night hours.
- Very helpfull staff. From the concierge to the reception and from the cleaning personnel to the restaurant!!! Always eager to help you with a smile. Especially Ms. Silvia in the reception! - Great location. Everything is nearby - The breakfast buffet. Not the widest variety, but great quality! And the staff in the restaurant was amazing!
- The room we had was facing the front. The view was good, but the noise levels were elevated. This, in combination with not modern windows made it difficult to sleep well. The majority of the noise (spontaneous youngsters playing music) stopped around 00:15 on Thursday and around 01:15 on Friday. But you can always ask for a room in the back.
Very good and convenient location. Good personal and breakfast service.
Computer in the internet room was very slow and internet service slow.
