                  good location

                  expensive internet access, kitschy decor, ants running around the breakfast room, bathroom tiles not very clean

                  Good breakfast buffet and service.

                  I had booked the room and the parking post 2 weeks before arriving at the hotel. When I arrived the woman in the reception could not find my name on the reservation, and she didn't know about my reservation of the parking, although they had answered positively 2 weeks before from the hotel . One night I left with my car from the hotel to go out and when I returned the man on the reception told me the parking was now full... (!!!) Also the hotel is situated far from the center, it took me one hour and 2 different buses in order to return... I believe that for this value of money there are better hotels to stay to, in Florence, except if you are not in Florence for tourism and want to stay near that area of the city.

                  The beds were extremely comfortable!

                  Tthe selection of television channels were poor - there were only two options in English! Also, the location was very dire - it took us nearly 3 hours to find our way home from the town one night, in the dark!

                  Very friendly hotel staff. Not for typical tourist visiting Florence but for travellers.

                  Breakfast quality not too high.

                  It's our 3rd stay in this hotel. It's about half hour walking to the city centre.

                  The variety of food at the breakfast could larger.

                  The hotel is very beautiful and have an excellent style. Located in the center.

                  We only have problems with the parking place for the car.

                  There's a good parking lot for people driving a car. The room is very clean and comfortable.

                  It is a little bit far from Firenze's touristic places, if you are planning to walk.

                  The staff was helpful, they speak english and has city map and bus ticket (the bus stop is very close and the line goes directly to the city centre). The car parking is quite big, but not free (cheaper than on the street). The breakfast was sufficient.

                  Between the booking and the traveling the hotel became a four-star hotel. We feel it in the rate of the city tax, but not in the services: there wasn't any glass in the room and the bed was broken (they changed it when we told them).

                  The apartments have nice small balconies/backyards that you can use.

                  WiFi is only available at the reception desk, there is no signal in the room, unlike what the hotel states. The room was also crawling with ants.

                  Flexible & friendly staff

                  Star rating and reality are far apart

                  Staff on reception rather rude and not welcoming or even wanting to assist
