Everything about this place was perfect, the location, our room, the staff, the rooftop swimming pool, it was just lovely. We only stayed for two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer.
The only slight down side was that the main restaurant was closed but this was due to COVID restrictions but there are plenty of nice restaurants in the immediate vicinity so it didn’t matter.

The hotel is located in the city center so a perfect base to walk around the city. We received a nice upgrade of the room from the friendly receptionist. The room was impeccably clean and spacious and has a beautiful sight over the square. The rooftop swimming pool has an amazing view over the Firenze rooftops and is a prime location to watch the Duomo at sunset. The friendly staff at the bar was also helpful in finding us a restaurant for the evening. Wonderful stay and I will definitely return!

Brill pool, covid cleanliness measures superb, great location. Breakfast was lovely.
Manager of the pool was terrible - spare beds not allowed to be used. Complained to reception then he changed his tune. Only complaint in a great hotel.

Staff were very nice, the hotel was very close to the train station and was in easy walking distance of the Duomo and other attractions. The pool on the top floor was great, with drinks and snacks available.
Felt the charges were excessive at the pool in the evening.

The room Was very clean and the staff very attentive Particularly the breakfast staff The pool was almost unavailable due to the Covid restrictions but the bar staff were very accommodating altogether it was a fabulous holiday I did feel that the hotel lost a lot of trade by not opening its lounge bar and restaurant....we would have definitely spent time in the bar every night with our family so much was lost for the hotel The location was simply amazing
The lounge bar and restaurant was closed The gym and pool We’re all most out of bounds die to the vivid rules

Hotel is just amazing, beautiful and the position is perfect. The room was very good and quite.
Just one think was not as good as I expected. After the hotel takes my car to parking at check inn at the morning on my request it came after 45 minutes without any announcement information on front desk about this waiting time. That’s was really problem for me to leave the city. Be attention and ask the car as soon is possible

Very good location in the heart of Florence. Friendly staff at the reception. Rooms are very cozy (view on the Piazza Santa Maria). View from the pool is top!
Organisation of the pool area was a total joke. Reservation is required in advance due to COVID which is total legit and was done by us early enough. The written confirmation of the reception did not make it to the pool service. The staff was incredibly unprofessional and unfriendly. After half an hour and countless rolling eyes we were able to move into our reserved sunbeds (after I walked down to the reception personally because that pool manager was not able to manage the situation). At this point of time half of the sunbeds were empty anyways. And his solution was to place us half a meter next to other guests. Next day we expected a better service, because we went through all this - however it was exactly the same. It is really sad, because the location is very nice, however this totally unprofessional service leaves a pale aftertaste, ridiculous in such a hotel. Not to mention, that you have to pay 15€ for a small beer in that location - for that price I would expect a little more professionalism.

- location!! Extremely central to all major sights in Florence - quiet and clean rooms, not huge but ok for a couple with a baby - rooftop pool is a great way to relax during the day and always had space even without reservation. The view of the city and sunset is incredible! - service was excellent and indoor lobby area was huge -valet parking was a huge plus
- breakfast was plentiful but food not very tasty (eggs seemed powdered) - cocktails very expensive but this comes with the area
