                a nice hotel for a city trip to Florence. do not expect to much, but everything is there. the breakfast is OK and the rooms are clean. need to book a room to the inside so, in all a good hotel - only 10 - 15 minutes nice walk to all the sights.

                the whirl pool outside is small but OK. we had the problem that the heating did work all the time and it was to warm in the room. the management did not manage to fix this within 48 hours. garage is abou 15 minutes away, but car was collected and returned in no time.

                Breakfasts, beds, and staff are excellent.

                4* hotel with the rates they charge and you should not have to pay for Wi-Fi.

                Hotel is good located, 10 minutes walk from down town, they have arrangement with one garage (21 euro/day)

                Hotel is a bit expensive for what it provides. Rooms need renovation, beds and pillows are hard and blanket are old same as rug, and there not enough light in room. Bathroom is small. Every time when you take car you have to pay extra 5 Euros.

                Breakfast was very good, with very polite waiters.

                Not very friendly staff, not very impressive entry, with very worn out carpets.I Stayed at better 4 star hotels there, based on my previous experiences, this hotel is ok, not Super

                Very comfortable and well furnished. Welcoming staff. A little bit corporate but Best Western hotels have always been very reliable and all our expectations regarding a suitable city stay hotel were well met. The room was larger and bathroom more spacious than we expected. We would very happily stay there again.

                Nothing negative at all

                Hotel is clean & very close to the city center, the breakfast is very good!

                I can hear the noise when the room upstairs using the bathroom; car park is far & expensive; hotel is charging everything.

                Kind and helpful staff, very good location for a turistic visit to the city.

                Our room's orientation was to the back of the building and to a closed yard, so no view and very low natural lightning. Although quite, it's not a good view. Too classical forniture...

                Very nice atmosphere with excellent, friendly staff at a great location good value for money. Free use of the gym around the corner!

                I had a very large and nice room but unfortunately it was very noisy (found that out early next morning)
