    Superb

    The hotel is very clean , good location very close to a very nice park , 10 mins walk from train Station and center so we walked everywhere, very good value for money , lovely Florence

    The breakfast needs a bit more bakeries , the girl in the front desk is very rude .. Other than this nothing..

    Very good

    A very good hotel, very clean, with very large rooms for a hotel in its range. Parking is also available. For 12 € they let us keep the car inside the parking lot until late evening after we checked out. The noise insulation is very good, the double bed is huge. air conditioning fabulous. It is 15-20 min. walk from the center. A pleasant walk though.

    A little overpriced, parking cannot accomodate more than 15 cars at the most. There is a possibility of scratching the car. The breakfast is poor, Italian type, there are no eggs, only one type of ham and cheese, at least they serve very good espresso.

    Fabulous

    la politesse et la gentillesse du personnel. le parking privé à 12€ la nuit (en moyenne sur la ville le tarif est de 23€)

    malgré la reservation ,il manquait un lit à notre arrivée, le necessaire a été fait après notre demande. le fait d'utiliser le parking privé ,vous oblige à laisser la clef de votre véhicule à la reception.

    La cercanía con la estación de trenes de Florencia (a una parada de autobús), con el centro y zona tranquila por la noche.

    Que no tenga wifi gratis

    Fabulous

    -Ein gut gelegenes und komfortables Hotel, nur ca. 15 - 20 Gehminuten von der Stadt entfernt. - Falls mit dem Auto unterwegs, ist man in wenigen Minuten schnell wieder auf der Autostrada -Privatparkplatz vorhanden (zwar gegen Gebühr von 20 Euro, jedoch im Innenhof) -Zimmer sind sehr schön und ruhig (Zimmer gegen hinten raus)

    Der Frühstücksraum (im Keller) passt nicht so zum Gesamtbild des Hotels. Ansonsten nichts auszusetzen.

    Exceptional

    Hôtel superbe, propreté irréprochable, climatisé, grande chambre, , pas de bruit la nuit car pas de passage de voiture chambre 87,parking sécurisé, buffet du petit déjeuné trés varié. Le personnel est très accueillant, les réceptionnistes parlent Français. Si je devais y retourner ce serait sans hésitation.

    Isolation phonique un peu faible mais bon les voisins de chambre peuvent être parfois très bruyant ou pas !!!

    Sauberkeit und schönes Hotel.

    Personal nicht freundlich und nicht geduldig. Zimmer hatte ein kaputtes Fenster, mein Anliegen wurde am nächsten Tag repariert, aber das Personal scheint sehr beschäftigt zu sein und kann auf persönliche Anliegen nicht freundlich eingehen.

    Fabulous

    A brevissima distanza dal centro storico. Nonostante l'albergo si trovi nei pressi di una delle arterie più trafficate di Firenze, la stanza era molto tranquilla.

    Colazione discreta ma non eccezionale: cappuccino tiepido, succhi di frutta iperzuccherati.

    Superb

    Très bon accueil ( en français) et chambre très agréable.Hôtel situé dans une zone très calme et possibilité de garer le véhicule à l'extérieur sur des places en bleu (gratuité le dimanche). Bonne situation de l’hôtel puisque nous étions à 15-20 mn à pied du centre ville. Excellent rapport qualité/prix !

    juste le jus de fruit du petit déjeuner.

    Fabulous

    la ubicacacion perfecta, cerca de la estacion de tren, pero no habia escandalos, el aire acondicionado funcionaba perfecto y sin hacer ruido. los de la recepcion perfecto muy amables nos permitieron dejar las maletas antes de irnos. el desayuno muy rico yogurt cereal, jamon queso pan, jaleas cafe muy rico. y las habitaciones estaban listas desde antes asi que nos la dieron antes sin problemas.

    el problema fue que estaban pintando el piso donde estabamos y aun que solo entramos y salimos 2 veces en el dia no deja de ser incomodo talvez nos hubieran pasado de piso mientras pintaban pero nada del otro mundo al otro dia habian terminado y quedo muy bien. y lo que definitivamente deben cambiar es la senora del desayuno, es fatal para atender un pesimo trato al cliente, tira los platos cubiertos etc. y nos hizo hechados a las 10:10 am. el desayuno es de de 7 a 10. nosotros llegamos a las 9 30 y estabamos desayunando tranquilos y ella comenzo a tirar todo y aparentar que estaba apurada y nosotros la estabamos atrasando. y a las 10 y 10 nos hizo una cara y algo nos dijo que nos fueramos. inmendiatamente nos fuimos a recepcion a indicar lo sucedido. fuera de eso.. todo bien!!! volveria..
