    Perfetto! Great little hotel in a quiet location about 15 minutes walk from Duomo and 10 minutes to FSMN Station (main station) All the staff were great, very friendly and happy, the hotel is secure and clean, breakfast was perfect with good variety of food, has a courtyard rear garden which would be ideal to relax in with a coffee after visiting city! I would definitely recommend this hotel and hopefully will stay here again soon!

    Exceptional

    This hotel exceeded our expectations. We had two rooms between two families. The rooms were clean and decent sizes. The hotel has a beautiful courtyard in the back where they serve excellent breakfast. It was a "help yourself" type service with toast, yogurt, fruit, cappuccino machine, cereal, muffins, pastries, milk, juices to choose from. I'm sure I'm leaving out few more items they had. Two ladies in charge of the breakfast area were very attentive and had great sense of customer service. We stayed three nights at the hotel, and looked forward to our breakfast every morning. The front desk staff was excellent. Karin (I'm sorry if I'm misspelling her name) in particular was exceptional. She spoke fluent English and went above and beyond call of duty to make our stay peasant. Give her restaurant recommendations a try. We enjoyed dining at couple of restaurants she recommended.

    It would be nice to have reliable internet access available in the room, rather than just the public areas.

    Hotel very centrally located to everything in city centre and very near train station also - walking distance. Staff very helpful and hotel very clean.

    Stayed in ground floor room near breakfast room - very noisy corridor from 6am. Could hear everything in adjoining room also.

    Superb

    Bonifacio Hotel was amazing, we spent 9 great days there! (1) Hotel: recently renovated, with basic decoration and functional enough breakfast (bread, cheese, ham, croissant, juice, yogurt, etc. ...), elevator in a very charming building; (2) Location: The hotel is in a easy walking distance to the train station, no more than 15min and 10min of Duomo, the historical center of Firenze; (3) Staff: very very friendly, gave us map of the city, explained how to get around, indicated good restaurants with discount for hotel guests, gave tips on tours to nearby towns, and in the checkout give us a cute chocolate for Christmas gift! (4) Room: is large with a comfortable bed, desk, an armchair and a large window with natural light

    Only the internet wi-fi, despite being free in the room does't have signal-conection, and the signal in the lobby sometimes was bad-weak...

    Very good

    The staff is realy friendly and willing to help. We tryed some of the received recomendations for lunch and dinner and it was great. So, don't hesitate to ask for an advice.

    It was cold in the room. The central heating starts on November, 1. But we easily received an extra cover. The breakfast is till 9.30 - it is too early for a weekend, I think.

    Exceptional

    Karin, the manager made our short stay outstanding. She was able to help us get reservations to see David, she recommended an outstanding restaurant and she answered our many questions.

    About a 8-10 short block walk from train station. Make the directions a little easier to find on website.

    Superb

    Rooms were quiet and the staff very nice.

    The room didn't look exactly like the one in the picture but was OK considering the price. Also the bed wasn't ideal for a young couple on a romantic journey (if you know what I mean).

    Quiet location but centrally placed for sight seeing. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast and room up-to-date

    Superb

    Within walking distance of SMN railway/bus station, sight-seeing attractions and good restaurants (10-15 mins). The hotel staff are extremely helpful in giving directions and recommendations. The continental breakfasts are fresh and plentiful. The hotel is clean and well run. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to people seeking a quiet, good value hotel.

    Very good

    Good quality rooms and facilities - we had two rooms & both fine. Decent breakfast included in rate.

    Only downside was a 30 minute walk into centre of Florence, which became a drag after a day's walking round the sites.

    Fabulous

    The staff was great. Good breakfast. Good location.

    City tax (3€/night/person). A/c malfunction. Expresso should be better.
