        Individual guest reviews

        • Group of friends
          4.2

          The gardens around the hotel were beautiful.

          Rooms were small, 2 of the desk clerks were rude and unwelcoming, the phones did not work with interntional calls, they said the internet was down, they charged for parking. The beds were very uncomfortable.

        • Single
          7.4

          Its like walking through an old gallery in some ways, old chandeliers and a stunning garden for such a central location.

          Breakfast limited - basic cereal and some pastries. (fruit or some toast would be good!) No use of outdoor swimming pool, one of the main reasons I booked it...

        • Family with children
          3.2

          Was told the first night that I would not have a room with A/C but was promised that the next night I would be moved to a room with A/C. Well I was moved to a much smaller room and still NO A/C. I complained many times and nothing was ever done about it. The staff was not very helpful then they tried to blame me for not telling them about the A/C when I did many times to whoever was working the desk. They would not allow us to check out late. Very unaccomodating!!!! Would never recommend this Hotel. They also had a fee to enter the Pool, 8 euros per peron, that is ridiculous!!!! The pool wasn't even nice, very small in fact.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The rooms were very nice and clean. Breakfast was decent, could get a little repetative, but overall it was good.

          Didn't like the fact that the hotel charged 8 Euros for use of the pool, the gravel driveway and pathway made it very difficult to carry luggage, the cost of parking was expensive too 25 Euros. Considering the price of the hotel per night, I think these services should have been included for free.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Calm surroundings and nice big room. The main reason for choosing this hotel was that it was close to the city centre of Florence and that there was a swimming pool. We also liked the traditional style of the hotel interieur.

          Except for a couple of persons who were very helpful and service minded, the general impression is that the staff including the management are not very interested in the guests. We didn`t feel very welcome the 6 nights we were spending at the hotel. The payment of 28 € each time for a family of two adults and two small children is a lot for using the pool area. The pool opened at 11:30, what is late when one wants to spend the day by the pool. The total of 4 sunbeds and 2 sunchairs is also bad service when people are paying to use the pool area. When trying to join the morning coffee in the garden, we were stopped by the managment at the door step. We were also not very happy about the airconditioning in the room which were working badly.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The rooms were excellent, clean and comfortable.

          We had to pay for the private parking facility, we had to pay for using the pool and for even sunbathing.

        • Family with children
          4.6

          Good location, close distance to most attractions in Florence

          All these extra costs added, like parking 25Euros per day, using the swimming pool 8 Euros per day and person, pool fees did not show on Booked.net website.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Beautiful courtyard and pool. Tasteful.

          Parking was 25 euros and while that was disclosed online, the amount was not. I paid less in Rome center city.

        • Couple
          6.6

          We liked the swimming pool and the garden.

          We had to pay extra for using the swimming pool, however it was not stated neither on the hotel`s website nor on Booked.net. I think it was not fair. Also, according to the hotel`s website, you can have breakfast in their garden. When my boyfriend tried to go outside and sit down, one of the staff started to shout at him in Italian. The air conditioning did not work either.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          The pool

          Room and air conditioning very old and tatty

        • Couple
          7.4

          The hotel had onsite parking and the pool.

          No restaurant or food services. Pool only open from 1400 - 1900 and cost and extra €8 per person per day

        • Family with children
          3.8

          The staff is unfriendly,the room is old and dirty, the hair dryer almost blew in my hands.There is a parking right in front of the hotel, though you have to pay extra 25 euro. Many student groups. The breakfast includes 1 bread and one croassant per person and the staff is counting your bites

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Friendly staff, quite big rooms, good location with a 10-minute walk to the Duome.

          The breakfast is very poor, no internet, extra charge to use the pool, only 2-3 TV-channels.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Nice relax atmosphere of former "mansion house" with beautiful old architectural features. Will not suit people looking for a trendy boutique hotel, but it is a haven of tranquility in a bustling city and conveniently just inside the old town area. Staff were friendly, helpful a hardworking. As well as visiting all the key attractions in Florence we hired a car and travelled to Siena, the Chianti villages and Vinci. Hotel had parking at 25 euro per day, negotiated down to 20 as we were staying for 7 nights, still quite expensive. Location is good for driving in and out of Florence.

          Would have liked tea and coffee making facility in our room.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The pool was nice as we went during the hottest time of the year. It is easily accessible by car, right outside the ZTL. It is walkable to the central part of town which is nice, but it got a bit tiring for my 6 year old in the heat. There is a park (with little playground) within walking distance (couple blocks away) which was nice with kids and a dog.

          The price for parking is a bit high (25 euro/night), as well as the price for the use of the pool (5 euro/person).
