I just stayed here for almost 2 weeks. Adrian who is the young man who works the front desk is so friendly and helpful. And I enjoyed all the staff. This is not a fancy place but for the price it's awesome. The location is 2 short blocks from Santa Maria del Fiore. It is in the big Lorenzo Plaza... More

Very centrally located for shopping and local market. It is not fancy but very basic, and what you need for a night . Very helpful well articulated and friendly receptionist gentlemen. A place to sleep at and have a basic breakfast. Attractive priced and good value for money. Carpark just around the corner.

The location was great! The room was what we expect from a european room, same with the breakfast. Wifi was horrible, also what we usually expect when traveling. The staff was nice, except do not interrupt the older gentleman that works there WHILE he is watching the news. Other than that, it was a decent place to stay

This hotel is located right in the heart of Florence within a short walking distance of major attractions and the rail station. The rooms are of average size but everything is dated, the place was averagely clean but not spotless. The breakfast is the standard fare for budget hotels in Italy with the usual cheese, bread, rolls, jam etc. We... More

This hotel was located in a central location for what we were looking for. Only a 7 minute or so walk from the train station and about the same to the Duomo. Looks like a Wes Anderson film inside. We had a room that fit three people and it was perfect.

A traditional, rather old hotel in a fabulous location right in the middle of Firenze. Location is the big asset of this quaint hotel. The space and food are average but sufficient considering the privilège of sleeping next door to medieval San Lorenzo! Would return there with no hesitation.

Hotel had a great location. We walked everywhere! Street was quite noisy at night. Breakfast was okay. Some staff were friendly, others were rude. Wifi was only in the breakfast and lounge area. Room was small but comfortable.

Stayed here with my 2 granddaughters. Staff very helpful. Wifi only in lobby. Breakfast was not to my liking. Location is superb which makes staying here a plus. Our room was large and clean at the front of the hotel. Since we were in Italy for 2 weeks I didn't want to spend a lot of money on accommodations when... More

If you are not worried about your accommodation and just need a clean comfortable room SMACK BANG in the middle of Florence. Stay here. I just used it to sleep andwas out at sunrise and back late at night. Walking distance of most major tourist sites and surrounded by great restaurants, bars and cafés. The only thing lacking for me... More

The plus is, as said above, the hotel's location. It is easy to walk to most things you'd want to see and it is surrounded by cafés and restaurants. The negatives are that the hotel is run down and cheaply equipped. Our room was at the rear so quite quiet. Our 'balcony door' opened onto a central shaft overlooking bits... More
