    closeness to central region

    I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was basic but clean and adequate. The location near the centre of Florence and transport links was excellent.

    I found the breakfast rather boring with limited choice. The coffee was very disappointing and the din ing room was very gloomy.

    Location and bed comfort.

    There was hot water and air conditioner.

    There was no shampoo nor soap. And no Capuchino!

    The room was exactly as detailed in the website and the front office staff was very helpful and could speak English well. Room had all the amenities needed for a night out for us, as we just wanted the room to sleep and keep our baggage during our day tour in Florence. Clean room & spacious toilets add to the value. I recommend this to any traveler on city tour looking for a place conveniently located to the train station and value for money.

    It would have been nice if they had tea/coffee making facility in the room, and a bit more variety for breakfast which was included in the room rate.

    On the eve of my check-out i got drunk. In the morning i didn't hear an alarm-clock and thanks Heaven it was the hotel's stuff who woke me up. Thank you, guys!..

    Some information from www.Booked.net is incorrect. First of all, there is no Wi-Fi all over the hotel but only at lobby. Secondly, rooms are not provided with shower-cabins and everybody takes a shower using a neylon curtain instead of a cabin. It seemed to me i found myself at the nineteenth century;-)

    location was excellent,100 metres from rail station,400 metres from Duomo.Staff very helpful.Good value for money.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Good location, delicious breakfast, helpful staff.

    Traces of mold, uncomfortable shower, cracked plaster and mirror frame - features that do not irritate the old Florence. The lack of hair dryer and sockets, that require an adapter,were uncomfortable.

    Location

    bathroom, breakfast, beds, thin walls, air conditioned seemed to be going to explode

    For the price it was more than adequate. Excellent location - 2 minute walk from train station, market, and duomo. Rooms were basic but fully functional. While air conditioning didn't seem to work it wasn't needed and I didn't ask staff about it. Room overlooked the street but window blocked out the noise (3 layers thick :) ). Bathroom was very small and had mould on ceiling but was adequate for the price. Breakfast basic but very good for the price and saved on eating out in the mornings. Overall, if you're looking for a cheap base to sleep in while exploring florence for a few days I recommended this hotel and feel it doesn't deserve the bad reviews I've seen online! €114 each for 3 nights including breakfast in May is very good value!

    One member of staff kept challenging me to prove my room and name everytime I left the building momentarily to get something in the shop across the street. Did the same to my room-mate. Very annoying! All other staff were excellent.

  • Older travelers

    The location near the railway station and main sights was very convenient.

    The room was too small to be comfortable.

  • Single
    8.2

    Great location with proximity to main tourist sights; friendly and cooperative staff; good price and clean room.

    Really noisy neighbors and squeaky bed.

  • Family with children

    Great location, near railway station. Breakfast ok.

    Rooms badly in need of maintenance. Really only 2 star not 3 star standard.
