    The best thing is the rooftop!! We had drinks and enjoyed the sunset. The location is great. Only 8 min walk to the train station. The room was big, nothing fancy. It served the purpose of fitting the 4 of us.

    Convenient to train station and lots of places in Florence; I stayed here before 2 1/2 years ago and loved everything about it, so when I plan this trip, I knew this is where I wanted to stay again. I was not disappointed.😊

    How close the hotel was to the train station, and how we got a terrace room with a balcony.
