    Only staff, they were trying to be helpfull as they could. Plus buffet breakfest was good. Thats all.

    Smell in the rooms - we were changing it twice, old dirty carpets, uncomfortable beds, outdated equipment, especially in the bathroom, acient hairdryer, toilet flashes after minutes and you need to push the button for all that time, we seen other rooms in this hotel non of it looks like on the pictures. Not worth the money and 4 stars they have, avoid if you look for a decent level hotel. Plus there were some works going on in the hotel, heavy builders noise from 8am. The same from outside of our window. No luggage storage, they keep it next to the reception accessible to everybody who walks in. Not safe at all. Avoid at all cost, not worth the money at all. Big disappointment.

    Superb

    Right next to the train station and close enough to the tourist attractions in Florence. Big room & big bathroom. Comfy bed and a very good breakfast. Clean tidy & businesslike. They provide a code for internet service in your room that is easy to use.

    Very good

    The location was good and the room was very clean and well kept. Although the dining room was small there was a good range of food for breakfast and always kept replenished. The rooms had air-conditioning that worked well which was great in the height of summer. We booked two rooms and were given rooms side-by-side with balconies so the whole family could easily be together. Many of the reviews for this hotel said it was definitely not a 4 star hotel, however, I can only assume they were basing this on uk 4 star standards. I was worried after booking that maybe it would be of poor standard but I was pleasantly surprised.

    One of the beds was probably the hardest thing I have ever slept on but I guess that can happen in any hotel. The cost of parking the car was extreme and added a huge cost to the holiday. I would definitely advise anyone to look around at hotels carefully if planning to drive to Florence for their holiday and try to find a hotel with free parking.

    Fabulous

    This hotel is located about 300 meters from the train station. Restaurants and sights are in walking distance. The breakfast included in the room rate was more than ample. The room and corridors were old but had been kept up with annual care. The staff were more than helpful.

    Exclusive

    From the time we arrived at the front desk the welcome , the courtesy, the information regarding sighting, tours etc. made our holiday very relaxing. The staff were more than helpfull and nothing was a problem. The same when checking out including the facility for leaving our luggage until we were due to leave. Will recommend to our friends and business associates.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel is great for first time travellers with the train station and supermarket next to the hotel. Overall, the stay was great except for the small and slow lift and less friendly hotel receptionist at the counter.

    Exclusive

    Friendly efficient staff who spoke excellent English and went out of their way to help if we had questions. The buffet style breakfast was excellent. Superb location so it was excellent as a location for centre shopping and attractions and a superb train service for easy travel around Tuscany.

    I didn't have anything negative to say about the hotel.
