Loved the walk-in rain shower, view of the river. The morning breakfast, which was included with our room was very noisy very.

Cleanliness, politeness of staff and location
The size of the room - no place to open the suitcases. Space wasted on 2 balconies

This little hotel is absolutely fantastic! We asked for our two rooms to be close by as we had two teenage children in the second room and we were given two amazing rooms right next to each other with a private entrance just for our rooms. The views from our room were absolutely spectacular!! And the location was perfect with views of the river and Ponte Vecchio and a short walk to absolutely everything. Comfortable bed and plenty of space and the price was so excellent. Highly recommend this hotel!!
We asked for our a packed breakfast to take away with us on the last morning as we had an early train departure, however the food was all prepacked processed items and not very nice. Next time we will make our departure time a little later so we can have a sit down breakfast before we leave as the breakfast is lovely in the hotel. No other complaints as the hotel was just fantastic and we will be staying here again if we are fortunate enough to visit Florence again!

1- My room had a balcony with rever view and the problem was with the noise from vehicles crosing the nearby bridge. Since the A/C does not work in March, I had to keep the balcony doors always open to cool down the room but the noise from the outside made it painful. 2- the breakfast setup was simple and options were limited 3- great location, very central. 4- great staff. 5- the room was clean and furniture was great.

Location is amazing, a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio and Galleria Uffizi and walking distance from all main Firenze attractions. I got the room with view to the river and from there I could see the Piazzale Michelangelo and the beautiful houses from Oltrarno.

Located just a few minutes walk from the Uffizi but out of the immediate bustle. Lovely view up the river towards the Ponte Vecchio. Comfortable bed and good shower. Good breakfast selection. Helpful and friendly staff.
