When we turned up at the address listed for the hostel we were informed we were staying somewhere else nearby. This was a building under renovation just around the corner, where there were no staff on site and no facilities beyond a bed and a bathroom; security was also low. It was noisy with sounds from neighbours within the building... More

During a recent trip around Europe I stayed alongside with a friend in a number of hostels in various cities. This hostel was the WORST one of the lot by a considerable distance!! We paid for a twin room, as we had stayed in dorms for the majority of time and decided to 'treat' ourselves, how wrong could we have... More

Positive: location. Negative: the rest... Reception closes at 7pm so you better arrive early. Our room was clean but beds not very confortable. Basically, when you arrive it seems ok. But then you want to go to sleep... and there it starts:-(. First night: friends of the owner ringing and banging on the door at 2 am and leaving at... More

We selected this B&B because of its cheap rates and location. This experience turned into a lesson in knowing the difference between price and value. Due to the conditions of the rooms (dirty bathrooms, lack of towels and insects) we were forced to move to another hotel. It's a real shame. This property could be amazing if it were managed...

It sucked. It was really loud. I couldn't find the person in charge to get towels and stuff and one of the days there was no toilet paper in the whole place. No lockers, the place was really hot and it was too expensive.

LOUD. We booked a private room, and ended up with a "private" room with the walls not extending up to the ceiling. So we heard everything from 4 person room next to us as well as the light shown in from their room. We never saw the owner besides check in. And we didn't have towels the first night! Shared...

Wierd place because it looks like an apartment building ; the manager does not speak italian.... no sign, you just ring and enter. Pretty difficult to park in Florence ; and the place is close to the station. So train is more convenient. The room is clean, and has beautiful ceiling (!!!) : BUT be careful : no wall going...
