Letti confortevoli, camera silenziosa, bagno pulito. ottima dotazione da bagno (ciabattine, accappatoi...) La colazione continentale proposta era buona, tuttavia per il livello dell'albergo la colazione internazionale sarebbe stata una proposta piu' adeguata.

Buen hotel, buen desayuno comparado con otros, personal eficiente. Aparentemente cercano al centro, pero si no te gusta caminar, queda un poco lejos de algunos de los monumentos principales de Florencia. En cualquier caso, lo recomendamos sin ninguna duda.

Well positioned hotel wih modern facilities. Not overly hospitable. Good bedroom in most respects, but (as we have often experienced in Tuscany) you can either have a bedroom like an oven or open the windows and let the street noise in - either way it's difficult to get a good night's sleep.
