A great location for Florence sights

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 12, 2009

My first advice is to avoid Yahoo! Maps for this hotel. We printed one before our trip and went the opposite direction and ended up walking WAY more than necessary in the incredible August heat. If you don't have a map, just ask at the information desk at the train station before heading out. Once we found the hotel we were pleased. The staff was helpful and our room was nice. As all of our hotels in Italy, this is a four star but would be about 1.5 - 2 stars by American standards. It was safe and clean but needed some touching up. I wouldn't let something like that keep you from staying there though. It was wonderful to be so close to the sites so that we could slip back into our air conditioned room from time to time.

Unique Quality: Very nice location, air conditioned.

Directions: Near the Duomo

This hotel is right in the center of Florence, about 100 m from the Duomo. While this means it is noisy, especially at night, it also means you're very close to the main museums.
Before booking the hotel I had checked tripadvisor and was warned against
- the noise: True, it is loud, but not too bad, as the windows shut off much of the noise.
- a strange smell: Also true, but luckily mostly in the hallway and once in the breakfast room.

Since I had got a very good deal, about 90 Euro a night, I had booked it. We had a very large room with a large bathroom. Breakfast was included, buffet style. The breakfast room is small,in the cellar, some guests had to wait for free tables. It was also the only time in Italy when the coffee was undrinkable, too bad! However , there was hot water for tea and lots of juice.

There were a few problems while we were there, the TV didn't work and it took a while to be repaired, one evening there was a power black-out - a good way to meet your neighbours!, as everyone met in the hall asking "Is it dark in your room as well?"-.
Internet was advertised in the lobby, but when I asked I was told it's broken. I asked about an internet café nearby, but the receptionist had no idea.

For what we paid I thought it was a very good value, however, I would never have paid their rackrate of about 270 Euro a double.
