Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel!
Great hotel! The room was perfect and the staff was nice. They took care of a special request I did because we were on honeymoon. Loved it!

Poor 2.0
Needs to Lift Its Game
Room and bathroom are tiny, of modern design but devoid of functionality. Service in relation to parking was both misleading and inadequate, causing us 3hrs of inconvenience finding off-site secure parking for 20 euros/day when the hotel has parking for 24 euros, but neglected to mention it to us. Breakfast offering and service were woeful - for over 30 minutes there were no eggs and bacon.
Phillip, usRomance trip
Very Good 8.0
Overall Good stay
The hotel lobby was amazing. Breakfast was great! Room had some minor things that you can tell were from lack of maintenance. Exhaust fan in bathroom didn't work which was the reason the paint on the ceiling was peeling in the bathroom. Toilet seat was loose and falling off. Bed was hard as crap but that is just Italian beds. Balcony was nice and private. Closet space was adequate and TV was great. Wifi wasn't bad either. Would stay their again. Getting to the hotel was very easy and parking in their underground parking garage was a bit steep at 24 euros per night.

Needs upgrades but good proximity
Bathroom had mould in it. Feels like place needs serious upgrades on all levels. Hotel is in central area and easy to get to.

Best Florence experiment in 2 days
Gabriel at the front desk was one of the most helpful person ever. My experience in Florence because of his suggestions, was the best I had. He took the time to draw on the map, must see sites as well as local/hidden gems. I'm grateful I encounter him at the hotel with his magnifencent customer service.
