    We chose this hotel because it was in a quiet neighborhood up the hill with amazing views of the city. Calling this a 4 star hotel is a bit of a stretch but the staff was polite, room was big and clean, balcony provided great views, and breakfast was acceptable.

    .Views were great but it was painful to catch the bus back and forth from downtown. If you want to visit the city every day then I wouldn't stay here. However, if you're planning a trip for a week and only want to be in city center for a couple days then this would be a great place.

    Staff were more than helpful and very friendly. The room was adequate but usual for an older hotel. The main reason we booked the hotel was because it had a secure car park and this was manned 24 hours. The breakfast was basic but the conservatory used for breakfast was lovely. There were fantastic views from our room over Florence which more than made up for any inadequacies. The hotel was a little outside the centre of Florence but there was public transport into Florence and we took an inexpensive taxi ride back. Overall I would recommend as the staff was great and the hotel atmosphere relaxing after the bustle of the city.

    The shower was small and had little water pressure.

    Good stuff and kind people and good public transport connection from the Hotel to Firenze

    Price-quality relation is not so good. The hotel is old, you can't open the windows for example because the stuffs didn't clean them from years I think.

    Location is interesting not far from city buses and in a nice area .

    This hotel is not maintained as it should be for a (false) 4 stars. No hot water in the bathroom for shower! When we told it to reception on day 1 we have been explained they were informed already by other clients and this problem will be fixed immediately... But no hot water day 2 day3 and day4... And no pressure at the taps. Breakfast is very poor : synthetic coffee , industrial bred and fatty croissants , hyperdiluted/chemical fruit juices, ... in conclusion difficult to understand how this kind of hotel can still be ranked a 4star hotel in Firenze .No value at all for money

    The view over the city

    Didn't like: old, not a four starts, everything seems to be falling apart

    Very good location still in a walking distance to city centre, quiet area, hotel on the hill overlooking the city, nice staff speaking English which is rare in Italy.

    The staff were very welcoming, the room was very clean and comfortable with beautiful views over Florence. There was secure parking.

    This hotel is not in the centre of Florence but we were happy to see a quieter more peaceful side of the city and the journey to the centre was only minutes by taxi.

    Very nice place, situated on the hill, has stunning views of the city and is great place to relax. It offers free parking nearby, which is valuable, although we didn't take the car out as to find the parking in Firenze center is a huge headache, so we used our feet instead.

    Pretty far from the city center, we didn't take the public transportation as we couldn't figure out a nearby stop (we thought you would spend extra time to get to and from the stop anyway). Overall, other than its remote location, great place.

    This is not a "4 stars" hotel, this is a "2 or max 3 stars" hotel !!! I cant understand that "there´s no free lunch" or "you get what you pay for", but it´s not fair to classify this hotel with these stars ! Old furniture and infrastructure, smells not good, terrible bed, etc.
