    The hotel needs a bit of TLC. For the price, it's a bit scruffy- the garden, the rooms, the hall... all could do with a bit of clean, replace some furniture, and a lick of paint.

    The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, that applies to all I've met during my stay (reception, breakfast, cleaning staff...) the location in very convenient as well with lovely views.

    The rooms are a bit small, and dark, but that is the nature of the building; very clean and well-maintained.

    Historic property with huge terrace restaurant overlooking the heat of Florence, from far up a hill. Amazing location which we have been visiting since 1998.

    In a gorgeous location overlooking florence, this hotel is in an old and beautiful building with lots of character — its entrance it's so grand I walked straight past it thinking it was a museum

    Very few guests in jan. No muesli type cereal for breakfast. Rolls or pastries not fresh.But great view.

    Frequent Bus from Firenze stops outside. Good Bars and trattoria in square.

    No lift lots of stairs to carry suitcase. Mattresses and pillows were awful , the whole place needs a renovation. Should not have had the star rating you gave it. Too expensive and generally shabby.

    The bed was very firm and not very comfortable. The pillows could be a lot fluffier.

    Love the location. The view of Firenze is beautiful from the hotel. The restaurant was very good.I would stay there again and recommend it to others

    We loved the hotel not only for its position in the hills 15 minutes from central Florence but also for the slightly faded grandeur which typifies Italy's history for us and the reason we visit regularly.

    A little old fashioned and could do with a few mod cons in the bedrooms but could not fault it otherwise.

    Location was excellent for the money I paid. Satff were very helpful.

    Hotel very tired.... Lower floors smelt of mould, changed rooms, to a more expensive one, but not good value for money, hotel side needs a complete refurb.. Including furniture & beds

    Very good food/restaurant

    The two single beds in one of the rooms we booked for our son were extremely uncomfortable and hard. A kettle, tea etc in the bedrooms would have been nice. Breakfast was quite simple.

    The staff were welcoming and helpful. The building was classical and characterful. The location was ideal.

    Staff that was on duty at the restaurant when we had dinner there wasn't particularly concerned with speed and accuracy of ordering and serving food, but hey, it all added to the slightly run-down charm of this wonderful place.

    What a wonderful location, opposite the bus stop to Florence, and we had a great ancient room with a magnificent view of Florence. Very hospitable hosts, but a bit challenged with over-the-top demands of other (especially US) guests. I expected a 'Basil Fawlty' outburst, but it would t come. Oh - little, but nice pool to enjoy at the end of a hit day!

    Way too expensive (we paid 199 euros for a single night) for what is really just a pretty shabby old hotel.

    Nice views.
