Positive Reviews

Chic and spacious rooms in period property

The choice of classic rooms, upgrade rooms and apartments at this modernized 18th century Florentine palazzo appealed to guests, who often described the accommodation as spacious, clean and well-appointed. Chic touches like the frescoed high ceilings and soft furnishings appealed to guests staying in many parts of the property. Reviewers also welcomed features like the coffee-makers, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges and kitchenettes. Several visitors also commented that the premises usually remained cool during warmer weather. Those prioritizing affordability felt they got good value for money as the rates were competitive for central Florence.

Central Florence location near the station

Travellers got the best of both worlds at this property's location at the edge of downtown Florence. Not only was it a short walk from the main railway station but also it was possible to explore the museums, churches and historic sites of the city centre World Heritage Site on foot.

Good customer service
