All the comfort of a hotel in the centre of Florence, with friendly and helpful staff


When travelling, especially to a new city or one with which we are unfamiliar, going on roads we do not know, navigating through traffic or estimating travel times accurately can be a difficult and tiring task. That’s why we’ll provide you with a handy guide to the hotel and various tips on how to park your car.


We will be at your disposal for any information and enquiries. Our staff is very well-informed about all the events currently taking place in the city and about all the must-see attractions. We’ll help you build a tailor-made travel experience, where dreams can come true and unforgettable memories are crafted.

Breakfast on request

We also welcome our guests when they wake up with Breakfast Service every morning from 7:30 am to 10:30 am. You can start your day in a delicious and relaxing way with our exclusive breakfast buffet with a small additional charge of 6.50 euros per person.
Enjoy a quality service offered in a cozy and characteristic room or, in fine weather in the delightful garden: the most pleasant way to start the day discovering Florence.
