A sumptuous blend of old and new, this 1930s-built former mansion has been entirely refurbished to provide guests with all modern comforts in a pristine and fresh yet traditional setting. A welcoming atmosphere ensures that a stay in one of the 14 guest rooms is fuss-free and relaxing. Hotel facilities include a lobby, 24-hour reception and check-out service, a hotel safe, breakfast room, laundry service and garage. There are many breath-taking sights within a few minutes' walk of this hotel's front door. It is just 1 minute away from the Santa Maria Novella station, next to the Palazzo dei Congressi and the Fortezza da Basso, which is home to numerous international conventions and exhibitions. The city centre of Florence is some 800 m away. Amerigo Vespucci Airport is around 5 km away and Galileo Galilei Airport in Pisa is around 80 km away. A breakfast buffet is served daily.
As of July 2011 Florence is introducing a new city tax to be paid by the guest to the hotel directly prior to their departure. This will be charged up to a maximum of 10 days, per person per day (excluding children under 10 years old). The tax rate ranges from € 1.00 per day for a 1 star hotel to € 5.00 per day for 5 star hotels.
