Friendly kitchen staff.

For a so-called four star hotel, it was basic in every way. It is just a bed and breakfast, nothing more. It is a con to call this a four star hotel. It doesn't compare to proper four star hotels. No kettle for making hot drinks. No iron in the room. Internet is the ownly luxury and this kept freezing. Every night I had to complain about it. When we realised how bad it was and demanded a refund. They were unreasonable. Any prospective clients must beware: THERE IS A REASON WHY THEY SAY PAYMENTS ARE NON REFUNDABLE. THEY HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING TO STAY FOR A FEW DAYS. This place is for people who are simply looking for an overnight stay where facilities are not important. Booking online is unadvisable as online you think you've paid everything only to find out there are other charges. Though we fell in love with the cafeteria staff. Breakfast initially does not cater for non-pig meat eaters, I had to ask for other meats like chicken. There was no fresh fruit for breakfast. It is near a prison and for the best part because there is nothing to do at the hotel, it felt like a prison. To add insult to injury we have stayed at many hotels but have never had any call the Police for us especially when we were simply negotiating our way out of a drastic, dreary, dismal, dungeon of an experience. Luckily the Police had more sense than the hotel staff and left. In short we would encourage any prospective clients considering to stay here, to think again and take their business elsewhere, where they will be treated like human beings.

Hotel was quiet and clean.

Very bad public transport conection to down town. Restaurant was closed for dinner. Staff at reception was not polite and helpful. Breakfast - poor offer of food. Construction side close to the hotel.

Price/quality ratio. Free parking (indoor when avail as well) Good availability Good for a night stop (Not for Florence sightseeing)

A bit difficult to find with out GPS. Not the best area - a bit deserted - 700m from Florence prison. 15min from town by car!

very good price performance ratio. modern rooms , quite satisfied

far away to city center, public transportation is cumbersome, so best way is the car.

The room was small but very well bundled: lcd quality TV + SAT + small frigo bar + phone + internet pay-service + every bathroom item you could need in case you forgot something at home,reception guys were very kind and responsive,the ID card key worked well too. No problem for leaving our car parked for several hours in the hotel parking area also after the departure from the hotel.

The safety box was damaged and it did not work but they arrange a good solution for helping us anyway. Also the air conditioning was inactive but this was due to some scheduled start-up issues not related to the hotel responsibility .

Cheap hotel (with equal quality)

Called Business hotel, but it's not a business hotel. No internet in the rooms, no ironing, no room service (eventhough roomservice is mentioned in the hotel description)
