    We had a really good price. Swimming pool :-) Good location, easy ascess by car to Firenze.

    We had a smoking room (we signed up for no smoking). The staff is rude. Breakfast more than casual italian (not just sweets :-)) but the eggs from powder.

    normal 4 star Italian hotel, parking in front of hotel

    The hotel is good if you visit Florence with a car, because it has free parking and the bus station is near the hotel. The drive into the city with the bus is about a half hour depends on traffic. The last bus is driving against 23 o clock. The hotel is about 15 Km from Florence city center away. a Tip: you may book only the superior room, because these rooms are renovated. The hotel is a little older, but the rooms are renovated and clean. It has a swimming pool. For a city trip (2 nights) we can recommend this hotel, but only if you come with car.

    old furniture, old carpet, very old elevator. Some students have a party next to the swimming pool under with loud music under our window (this was not so good). On the internet photos the hotel looks better than in reality

    Very kind and helpful hotel staff; good breakfast.

    The hotel is too old and not renovated. It would take a lot of imagination to rate it 4 stars - I would give it 3 stars max.

    The hotel is near the highway but you dont hear the noise from it. The outside looks of the hotel does not reflect its good interior. The room was tidy and furnished in a modern stile. The bed was perfect i slept like a baby. Just in front of the hotel you have the bus station. The bus no. 2 takes you to the central train station santa maria novela in 35 - 40 min. The price of the ticket is 2 € in the bus and 1,2€ at the Tabaccaio.If you are with the car and wont to visit the rest of toscany the hotel is just for you. Afther the whole day of sightseeing a good sleep is priceless and the hotel gives you just that.Just one more thing the breakfast is excellent.

    Good room (recently renovated), good breakfast.

    Just two minor issues: the elevator is quite old and the wi-fi/internet was offline during several hours.

    Old Hotel which is long overdue for renovation.

  • Couple
    8.8

    big hotel but a bit old, 40min by bus from city centre of Florence, but only 1 min away from highway, very helpful and friendly staff at reception, for our room category we could also use a very fast WiFi connection everywhere in the hotel even at pool, breakfast was ok, good restaurant, pool is very nice and also for free, free big parking, big shopping centres nearby

    it's not luxury for 4 stars hotel

  • Family with children
    7.4

    kids liked the pool, good breakfast, nice modern decor, good location- near large supermarket, also conveniently near highway, easy to go to Florence

    Could keep the pool cleaner, not really 4 star...maybe a good 3-star rating would do

  • Couple

    - dinner was too late - shower was barely working
