Great value and quiet Publié le 1 nov. 2012 sur Hotels.com
Finding a reasonably priced hotel in Florence is a challenge. I found this place and noticed that the major complaint was that it was a 20 minute walk from the major sites. This was fine with us as we love to walk. In addition, the hotel is located off the street down a short driveway, so street noise was minimal Street noise can be significant in Florence. The room was large and had a lovely window looking out over the garden. It was raining while we were there, but it was nice to have a connection to nature in the middle of this very urban area. There was a small safe right in the room so we could lock up our passports and other valuables. We had free wifi right in the room. The breakfast was not quite as nice as some, but for the price, the fact that breakfast was included was a plus and the coffee was good. The staff was very helpful. We received an email the day before our arrival asking about our approximate arrival time. This was reassuring. When we arrived they helped us carry our luggage upstairs, suggested local restaurants, provided a map of Florence, explained where to catch the bus into town, and arranged for a taxi to the airport.
