The location was convenient.
The breakfast did not meet our expectations—perhaps not variation-wise but more quality-wise. The cakes that were offered in breakfast tasted iffy; others were not really well prepared. The room had a small balcony that looked at nowhere (the adjacent apartment's roof) and, thus, was a bit scary; would not, ergo, suggest you to book a room with a balcony. The bathroom was spacious but water pressure was a huge issue—especially when taking a shower.
The hotel itself was a little bit small - the room that we booked was too small for 4 adults. However, when we talked about our problem with the staff, they were kind enough to suggest changing our room with extra fee (we were lucky that there was an empty apartment room at the moment). The breakfast was fine; we had to wait for a while for the staff to change the syrup in the juice machine at the second day though. The location is great; you can get to nearly all spots in Florence by foot.
If there are more than 4 adults, make sure to book 2 rooms because the room is much smaller than expected - even if it is a qua-triple room.
One family member has severe food allergies. The hotel had soy milk and food options for her. The location worked well for our arrival and departure by train. It would have been more private for the 4 of us if the bathroom were not located in one of our rooms.
The night staff was very unhelpful regarding several requests. We wanted our laundry done. The staff pushed hard for us to use the nearby laundromat but we just wanted to use the hotel service. Also, we would have liked to have some ice but they claimed to have none. They were also unable to advise us of any local restaurants that could meet our food allergy needs, instead telling us to look online. Final thing, there was no place to put our suitcases so we had to work from them on the floor.
The hotel is in good location. The staff is super helpful.
