The star hotel has a small desk and a small but cozy lobby and a toilet/bidet in the fresh can do. The hotel has five floors (elevator available). On the 1. floor is the breakfast room and on the 5. floor the bar with its adjoining small restaurant with a small menu. The building is older but the hotel is clean, well maintained and relatively decorated up to date. The guests are international and more somewhat older, probably because of the price structure. For disabled the hotel i would not really recommend, since there were rather narrow entrances/corridors and lots ... of stairs. Families with children we have for our stay not seen. read hotel review

    We had booked a suite. The room was relatively large and consisted of a separate room without door for the double bed. The bed linen the boxspringbettes was clean, the mattresses for us in the hardness just perfect and there was per person two pillows. In the living room there was a couch, a table and two small armchairs. In the corner next to the mini bar, there was a desk with a chair. The bathroom consisted of double sink, shower stall and through a door separate toilet and bidet. There were bathrobes, slippers, and very many towels in different sizes available. There was also a hair dryer, a mirror and all toiletries in hotels as usual (shampoo, soap, shower gel, skin cream, and so on.). The tooth mugs were a mark plastic cups. With the thick walls of other other tourists received nothing, a loudness as in many other hotels we didn't found. Only the already described problems with the toilet and the street noise was a shame and paid 250 €but a little annoying.

    We only had breakfast in the hotel. We were positively surprised, because we in Italy with hotel breakfasts already bad experiences did. It was from the normal eggs scrambled eggs with bacon, a variety of meats and cheese to salmon actually everything you need. Of course, the bread selection not like in Germany, but there was even different bread rolls. Fruit, cereals, fresh yogurt, becherfruchtjoghurt and cakes. To the tea or coffee you can four different juices or help yourself to water. The waiters were quick and the tables fast for the next guests again prepared and the buffet was always well stocked. Everything was clean and the tables are not too close, so that you in peace breakfast could be enjoyed.

    On arrival we were friendly greeted and got immediately a voucher for a soft drink in the hotel bar. Because we arrived early, was our luggage to the reference of the room in a separate area was kept. They gave us a map offered, so that we the first sightseeing-tour start. After our room ready was, we were to the room then the luggage brought to the room. In the minibar beverages are relatively humane prices. Two small bottles of water per person are free of charge, or in the room price included. However there are only two small glasses (no wine -, sparkling wine- or beer glasses). A problem we had was with the toilet. The unit in principle always go through. Because we for one night no desire had, these during our short stay to complain about, we just after every flush the water turned off. Actually the cleaning lady the notice and to report. For the return trip we were allowed the room on demand an hour longer used and then was our luggage up to our departure to the airport again 'embedded'. When it rains there were enough umbrellas for the hotel guests available. The lady at the reception even for us via internet check-in for our return flight in progress. It was not impressed, but it has made. The service language is english, whether they speak german, we only not at all try it.

    A sports and a pool there are in the hotel not. This is however in a city hotel in our opinion not necessary. In the evening one can in the bar, there, there are also a small terrace with 'arno view'.

    The hotel is situated in the middle of centre of Florence directly on the Arno and 100 metres from the famous bridge Ponte Vecchio away. Up to the attractions on foot it is maximum 20 minutes in every direction. A car is not necessary and that is why there are no parking spaces at the hotel available. To the main train station are he on foot also about 20 minutes. From the airport you drive to the fixed price of 20 €plus 1 €per luggage also about minutes to the hotel. The coach c3 (for inexpensive city tour in many guides) and further buslinien hold more or less directly in front of the door of the hotel. Due to the central location of the hotel in the middle of the center is only reduced traffic on the street in front of the hotel instead of. This is however still so much traffic, that we at night not the window open could, as you otherwise no eye. However we had our room specially with 'arno view' and wanted a room to the street get. The 'arno view' to book is worthwhile at least from the 3. floor not, as one it only limited looks, as directly in front of the hotel over the street a building/hallway is built, the a the view adopted. It should then already the first or 4. floor are, the Arno in its full grandeur from the window to see. Restaurants are in the immediate vicinity countless, the most expensive! Fast food restaurants have we in the center hardly seen. There are many baker's shops and small shops, the snacks sell and also a glass of wine offer. If you stand together with the italians in 'cosier' round consumed are the prices reasonable.

Double room booked through Expedia/huge suite, because with child. Great! Clean.. Start with private car hardly possible! Navigation systems are also failing, because one-way streets system completely. We stood suddenly on Piazza della Repubblica. Well... Entrance to the ztl only check-in and check-out, even though the hotel is trying to help in between. Valet parking only! 35 euros a day! read hotel review

    The hotel was located next to the center of Florence (palazzo vecchio) and only 15min to go from the central railway station.
