    The hotel was a modern hotel with a good size family room. Cleanliness was good but with some dust/dirt etc in the hidden corners. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel is approx 15min walk to the centre. Overall excellent value for money

    I liked the agent during my check in. She was very kind and also called a restaurant to make a reservation for me for dinner.

    I did not like the agent during my checkout. Frankly, she was quite rude. Also, the wireless internet, while free, did not work in my room on the top floor.

    Location was good and continental breakfast was excellent (one of the best I had in Italy). The hotel restaurant also had good food and friendly staff (although I was upset they did not inform me that the restaurant does not open on Sundays). Good internet access in the room was also a plus.

    The bed was extremely unconfortable (mattress with "holes"!) and I could not get a good night of sleep during the 5 nights I was there. Room size was also on the small side.

    Hotel is good situated and near to the hart of the old part of Florence. It is easy to reach the center by foot. Also the garage for the car is very good situated. Food and breakfast ambient is very good

    Hotel umbrellas is very old and broken (we have a very heavy rain during our stay)
