  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I liked the Layout of the room- we had a sitting area with TV, small kitchen, and bedroom. Also had balcony off bedroom and sitting room. The room was very clean. The people at the desk were personable and helpful The location was 10” walk from Santa Maria Novella We were able to take a tram from airport and only 5” walk to hotel.

    The hotel restaurant is a hidden gem

    Overall, it served our needs. The bed was super comfy, and it had an old world vibe which made us feel like we are in Europe. Loved the windows but we kept it closed bc our view were our neighbors. We learned from this hotel experience and a few more that followed on this trip, that in general, elevators are tiny (max 3 persons with one carryon bag each) as well as tiny shower stalls (hard to turn around). That said, it was all part of the European experience, I suppose. However, the staff were super friendly and helpful. But the hidden gem of this hotel is the restaurant. Excellent food (everything we tried) and the best tiramisu we had in Italy.

    Property was very clean and staff was super friendly. We had some issues with our room, and staff kindly helped us feel comfortable and fixed the issues. They also helped us reading the map and getting around the area. This place is 5 mins walk from T1 tram line from SMN station, which is very convenient. There is a laundry facility across the street, and several places to eat around the block. Will definitely stay here again.
