    This is a great location near the train station and I would definitely stay at the hotel again. Check in and out were very easy and the two staff members I dealt with were super friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and well decorated, and breakfast was good. I recommend the BandB!

    The location is good, very closed to the train station. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice and simple. The room was as seen in the picture, but with a few minor flaws (shower door stuck, shower rack was loose so it couldn’t hold anything, the safe box didn’t work). Overall, it’s not bad for a one night stay.

    Great location near the train station. Breakfast was wonderful and the accommodations were just what our family needed. We were able to arrive late to the B&B.

    Everything ok except the windows need to be sound proof. You can hear people from outside when they talking and yelling. Over all good location, clean hotel and good stuff. Last thing internet is poor connection.

    Very pretty, pleasant room in a great location close to just about everything including the train. We loved it and wished we could stay a little longer to enjoy it. Breakfast was excellent as well.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Great location! Steps from the train, and very walkable distance to the market, Ponte Vecchia, the Duomo, and even the Michelangelo square (less than 3km away, which is a short walk when you're stopping at multiple places). The morning was a bit harsh on the first day, as it was a Monday and the garbage was collected very early (we were in a room facing the street). The other day it was very quiet. The room is spacious, and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom is also spacious, but the shower area is TINY. It was a struggle to shower, and I'm not a large person. There's no elevator, and you're on the second floor, so keep that in mind. It was worth it for us, as we could walk everywhere we wanted, and arrived from the airport by train even at 11pm at night.
