    The hotel is very central with big rooms and its great value for money. It is a little hard to find and a larger sign outside would make finding it easier. I would stay again if i was going to Florence.

    The hotel was a nice and cozy place located right next to the Cathedral and well within walking distance of the train station. It is a pension/hotel and not a hostel so not a very social environment but an excellent place for a quiet, more relaxed getaway.

    Lovely old hotel, facilities are limited, shared bathrooms and no breakfast, but this adds rather than detracts from this beautiful and historic Hotel. I loved it, but not for others.

    Really, really welcoming staff. The annexx where we stayed was really nice, good views, good air conditioning, WiFi was of a good standard and both me and my girlfriend felt it was an overall nice stay. The bathroom was a tad on the small side, but it did the job. There were ALOT of stairs but we were fine with them and an elevator is available. Really close to the duomo and a good location. Only downside is we noticed a small colony of ants in our bathroom but it wasn't that big a deal.
