This contemporary crash pad on the edge of Florence is a wallet-friendly option for exploring the Tuscan capital. The quiet location is a little removed from the tourist-packed piazzas, but you’re just a 15-minute stroll from the Duomo and a 10-minute walk from the city’s main train station, Santa Maria Novella. The decor is pared back yet classic, with plenty of warm golds and creams. The laid-back lobby is decked out with parquet flooring, low-slung seating and intricate cutout panels, while the airy guestrooms feature blond wood, chunky headboards and custom-made furniture. Dine on traditional Tuscan dishes at the Assaggi restaurant and follow it up with a post-dinner drink at the wine bar of the same name. Stand out amenities include a 24-hour fitness center and a cozy library.
In the Area
Ideally positioned for those arriving at, or leaving from, Florence’s central train station, this hotel also puts you within easy reach of the famous Ponte Vecchio, with its tempting goldsmith shops. Nearby is the ornate Duomo, Florence’s cathedral, with its world famous Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, which looms over the city. If pasta and pizza are getting old, fill up on Punjabi cuisine at one of Florence’s best Indian restaurants, Indiano Haveli, close to the hotel. Otherwise, the Trattoria Baldini serves beef Florentine or Tuscan-style braised game and is just a two-minute walk away.
How to Get There
Really nice hotel.
Breakfast was good and the staff very kind. The hotel is not in the city center but the tram stop is only a few meters away.
The location is about 20 minute walk from Florence's main attractions and is very pleasant as the road is by the river. However it can be difficult when it is warm.
Contained the amenities that most Americans expect: clean, modern and the A/C worked well. While I used to take all of these things for granted, 1 week into 2 week tour around Italy, I no longer do. Comfortable bed, quiet room but still within walking distance (1/2 mile) from all the historic places to visit.
I chose this hotel after reading reviews mainly suggesting that the hotel is clean, spacious and modern. It is NOT any of that.
1- The room is so tiny and the bathroom is even tinier!! I couldn’t place my stuff anywhere!
2- The room smelled SO bad we had to spray half of our perfumes to cover the bad smell!
3- It is not modern! It is gloomy classic and needs A LOT of maintenance ! There were scratches all over the floors and the walls.
4- The staff are not friendly or nice! They had an attitude!
5-You can’t sleep well because u hear them moving furniture ALL the time!
Our stay was non- refundable, but we only were able to make it the first night. It literally felt like staying at a 2 stars motel. After only one night we had ENOUGH and we moved to another hotel.
