This was probably the best of the 3 hotels we stayed at in Italy through Contiki. It was also the cleanest and most modern. It didn't have a safe for valuables but I was really impressed with the number of lights in the place. The lights were modern and bright. There was even a cool modern mural that decorated our wall. The beds were just ok. The bathroom was nice complete with bidet. What's with Italy and bidets? Every hotel we stayed in had one. The heat worked fine in this room and again it smelled of smoke in our non-smoking room. Come on, does the staff smoke while working? We had to leave the window open to air out the room. In the room there was a nice flat-screen TV, and I really liked that the doors were coded keyless locks. There could have been more outlets but at least I brought a travel mini outlet power strip that accommodated our electronic devices.
The breakfast in the morning was limited even more so than the previous hotel. What gives with the chopped up hot dogs with scrambled eggs? If you're going to serve hot dogs, please provide some ketchup. Most places have bacon or sausage, which is more appropriate for breakfast. I did enjoy the cappuccino machine, Philadelphia cream cheese and Nutella packets. Breakfast was included with our tour but for the normal guests, it is 6 euro per day. The wifi is free in the lobby but not in the room. They also had a computer downstairs for guest use. The best part of the hotel was that it was close to the city center so we could walk everywhere without needing a cab, train, or bus. Actually Florence is built on old ruins so they can't put in a metro. If they dug, they'd find more ruins and all work would have to stop. So it's nice that the entire city is walkable.Recommended for:
