The room had air conditioning which was very welcoming. The reception staff spoke very good English, and were very helpful with regards to... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights August 2014. The hotel is a ten minute walk from the historic centre and also from the piazza san michaelangelo. However the location is really the main positive about it. The hotel is essentially a dormitory rather than a hotel. The room was very basic and although cleaned every day it... More

Stayed for 3 nights during August 2014, the rooms and bathrooms were very modern and comfortable. The A/C worked well, could have used better placed power points. Having a code to enter the room instead of a key/card was handy, 1 less thing to lose (Though I suppose you can forget the code). The hotel sold some basic amenities in... More

We were 5 people and reserved a Triple room and a double room. The Triple room was just a double room with a very uncomfortable rollaway bed as the third bed. The Room should have been advertised as a double wiht a rollaway and not a triple. A Triple room should have three real beds in it ( as I... More

We arrived to Florence 29 June by car. The reception personnel speak English OK and we went to our room quickly. We had to pay for our stay during the check in. Firstly, beware that breakfast is not included in the price of the room even it is B&B. Price of breakfast is 6,90€/person and you eat all you can.... More

This is your basic hotel and really not that cheap when compared to say a Best Western hotel. The total for one night for the 2 of us with breakfast was over 100 Euros. Breakfast was very basic as well. The room was fairly clean, the bed quite hard but clean. On the plus side was the free WiFi, which... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my sister. It was clean, nice and did the job for its price. Nothing crazy but just a nice B&B. It is 10min walk away from the centre which is great. It is not dangerous to go back to the hotel late at night which is good as well. I do... More

This hotel has several flaws, but it's not too bad. The room had a balcony with an interesting view of the city. Rooms with thin walls - we can hear a lot of things. Breakfast is weak. Cleaning is not bad, but also not faultless. It is located a bit far from the city center - walking can be interesting,... More
