We stayed for 6 days in this hotel and we were happy to choose it.It is a bit far from the historic centre but with bus n.14 we were there in 5 minutes.It is in a quiet ,residential area with a Coop super market nearby(very handy if you travel with kids) and lots of shops and trattorias(we went to La Taverna where the food was delicious).We stayed in n10 room(a triple )which was spacious enough for the 3 of us plus our 3 luggage.Towels were changed everyday and the older maid was very nice but the younger one with the rasta hair not so polite nor honest.We had a little incident with a small package of pistacchios that she said that we had taken from the mini-bar but in stead we even hadn't see that it was there.A word of advice:check the mini bar when you first enter the room because the last day we found out that another client had left in there a half empty bottle of wine.If also have the chance stay in a high floor because we were on the 1st floor and I was up every morning at 6.00 when the garbage truck was under our balkony.There are also rooms at the backyard which will be probably more quiet.We left our car in their garage(18euros/day) but if you are on the move and you go back to the hotel after 20.00 it is free to park in the blue zone.Signora Costanza in the reception was helpful and informative.She gave us good advice and helped us the best way she could.They also rent bicycles for 5 euros/day so you can visit the city easily cycling along the Arno river.We had non problems with mosquitos but we had our anti-mosquitos device so did the hotel room.The hotel is 2 blocks away from the river so you can have a nice walk after dinner.The only negative thing was the poor breakfast even for a 2 stars hotel.I come from Greece and even in small hotels you can find ham and cheese in breakfast but in this hotel no.There were only cereals,butter,honey, jam and precooked,heated sweet croissants.You could order your coffee which was nice.
All in all it is a nice,value for money hotel away from the city noise with the thousands of tourists!
