LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION STAFF LOVELY BREAKFAST
We paid for a Split Level Family Suite but for some reason were given the Suite (4 adults). There were building works going on in the hotel so part of the hotel was closed which may have been why we were given the other suite but we should have been charged less and sadly we weren't.
Hotel is located by Piazza di Santa Maria Novella - Very nice and quiet. Catherdal Florence located not too far from the Hotel. Free beer, soft drink, snack etc.from the mini fridge in the suite. Excellent breakfast buffet. Wonderful centre location.The hotel just next to the Rail Way Station. Great vaulw for money. Very helpful staffs. Will visit again. Stayed in Room # 212..../David Lee from Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA.
Breakfast no other hotel can beat this everyday fresh huge selection with any drink, although a addition Rooibos thee would be nice for the South Africans.
The location was great and close to everything
The bathroom is dark and needs to be cleaner
Renovations Wifi was erratic
Location and staff at this hotel were both great. Due to current renovations which we found out about after we booked, it was noisy. The hotel offered free mini bar and afternoon tea to compensate however this was a holiday and we would have preferred a sleep in and afternoon siesta. Also the room opposite us had a noisy dog. Not hotels fault however I would reconsider staying in a pet friendly hotel again!
Nice duplex suites ... we liked it Free WiFi Great location.. just walking distance from Station and major attractions Very helpful staffs
No toilet in the lowerfloor of the duplex
Great location within steps of the train station, and a short walk to all the sites in Florence. Beautiful view of the city from the roof top pool area...nice to use even in the winter. Best breakfast buffet during our Italy trip, and the free minibar was a nice touch!
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable reception staff Superb loft-style lodging for family
A special thank you to all the employees at the reception desk! They really went out of your way to help us.
Front desk very helpful. We are family of 5 with 3 adult children. Our rooms were next to each other which was helpful. Large rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast was fine. Location was within blocks of major sites.
Major construction taking place. I think it will be wonderful when complete, but it needs a facelift. Hotel provided free mini-bar due to construction, which is a nice gesture.
Location / staff helpful .
Will be writing an e-mail to booking.com .
Staff were very helpful and friendly. The apartment we had was absolutely perfectly equipped and designed in all aspects. Due to some renovation works ongoing, the hotel provided free minibar, which kept us well refreshed during our stay. Location was very close to the main train station, and yet the environment was very pleasant.
Service, atmosphere and location
It can be noisy when full and in Spring/Summer time due to proximity to a vibrant square. Great if such isn't an issue.
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.
