Via Dei Pescioni, 2, Florence, Tuscany
0.5 km from
This is a beautiful, classic hotel, sumptuously appointed, but not over the top. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff is wonderful. The breakfasts are elegant. (Best croissants of our trip!) The location is perfect, close to everything. Wonderful in almost all respects, BUT . . . The hotel has a problem with noise, especially on the Via del Pescioni side. We were on the second floor, and disturbed during the night by revelers in the street, but especially by the very loud noises of service vehicles starting about 6 am. The hotel must be aware of this, because they provided ear plugs (!) by the bedside. (We should have had the wits to read this ominous sign.) They moved us to a room on the other side for our second night. Avoid rooms overlooking the street! Also, there is no coffee machine in the rooms.
Cappuccino. Staff was understanding. The rooms next to the street are noisy because of the late night bars and at this time of year you can't have AC in the rooms because one system works the entire building. If you are hot or uncomfortable you have to open a window which just lets the noise in. Street cleaners, and trash service comes by at 5am which is nuts! Breakfast was blah...Single room was a closet and horrible shower. Im in shape and didn't fit in the shower.
They offer the best breakfast buffet in the morning, excellent selection of eggs, rolls, pastries, fruits, cheeses, cereal etc and hot american coffee. The breakfast room is nicely decorated and service prompt and friendly. A great way to start your day. The rooms are very clean, bar/lounge area looks newly decorated and a nice place to enjoy an evening cocktail. Very friendly and accommodating staff.
location bathroom of the room was old and cold, not at the level of a 4 star
It was a very beautiful hotel with an excellent staff and it was in an excellent location. We liked everything about the hotel.
The hotel is very well located within few blocks to major attractions and "centro storico". Be careful with the shower in the restroom because it is a step down from the floor and you can easily fell down.
Best location Location and the room
The location was excellent the service was good and the rooms were small but high tec Location and the room
The desk staff were exceptionally helpful, especially Mirko. More regular (non decaf) coffee in the rooms would be nice No all day cafe or restaurant, drinks very very expensive compared to elswwhere, breakfast expensive too.
The reception staff The room it self
-Delicious breakfasts -Friendly staff that were incredibly helpful and kind -Very clean in the hotel -There was no way to control the temperature in the room. -Some musty smells -Recommended tourist-y restaurants -Toilet did not flush
The beds were extremely hard.
The hotel is right in front of the train station and in walking didtance of the shopping and sites. Staff very friendly and nice The rooms are quite old and kind of a musty smell
We stayed in three hotels during our trip to Italy, and this was our favorite. Very centrally located, a short walk to all the museums, etc. The staff is extraordinarily helpful and sincerely friendly. The room was gorgeous, the breakfast the best we've experienced in a long time. We'd definitely stay here again if we returned to Florence. A tad cold, even though it was in the 90s outside. Had to turn off the AC. That did the trick.
It is good located in sightseeing.
Great room, excellent location, lovely roof-top terrace, very friendly and helpful staff. We should certainly return there. Nothing
Angelo, the major domo on Reception, knows all. Old world feel of the hotel is unique to Florence plus location close to Arno River. Heat was not working; portable radiator brought into room then knocked out electricity. Too much over-expansion on lower floors without proper maintenance. Lax to invisible security during major drug incident outside hotel's front door on 27-28 October. Disturbing sight and screaming stoned woman did not incite desk attendant to call Polizia, even in wee hours of morning.
Great staff- they were always incredibly friendly and helpful The room was a bit strange of a layout and could use some modernizing. The only true negative was that we believe my husband got food poisoning from the yogurt served at the breakfast. It was in a dispenser rather than individual containers so that was suspect to begin with.
Friendly staff and the hotel is very central En-suite building site that we were assured would not interrupt our stay, it did. We should have been given a different room. And there was a party outside our window from until 2am on one of the nights, not the hotels fault but still very noisy.
The convenience to everything, including the train, was flawless! The hotel was very classy as were the staff! The breakfast was top notch and delicious!!
Friendly staff. Upscale decor. Comfortable beds. The bathroom floor and the floor in the shower were extremely dirty. This was particularly evident to us since we had just stayed at a nearby hotel where the room and bath were immaculate.
