The Standard rate includes accommodation with buffet breakfast; it does not include the tourist tax applied by the City of Florence, which is 4 euros per person per night.

The credit card details provided as a guarantee of your booking will be verified through a pre-authorisation system (without being charged) for an amount equal to the total rate for the first night. A copy of this pre-authorisation transaction is available from reception.

You can change or cancel your booking free of charge up to 5 days before your arrival date. After this, you will be charged the entire amount of your booking.

What is the Non-Refundable rate?

The Non-Refundable rate offers you the same services as the Standard option but at a more advantageous rate.

The difference with the Standard rate is that if you cancel your booking, the amount pre-authorised on your credit card will not be reimbursed under any circumstances.

Is parking included?

Unfortunately we do not have private parking available.

Canto degli Aranci is situated within the ‘ZTL’ (restricted traffic zone) in the centre of Florence. Cars are only allowed to enter the ZTL if they are heading for a private carpark or garage (on-street parking is forbidden). The garage manager will send your car registration number to the City Council. This service (which prevents you from getting a fine) costs €1 in addition to the parking fee.
