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

What a HORRIBLE hotel! During check-in the clerk wanted to keep our passports. When we told this is illegal he was offended and gave the passports back. I asked where I could park my car as the listing mentioned clearly they had their own car-park. He told me this is incorrect and I should park at a public garage. It... More

We were on a three night break and chose as this was so near the centre which it is. The hotel is tired and our room was very dark. The colours are a bilious yellow and the room very basic. Wifi is only in the downstairs lounge. Breakfast was ok, limited, with tinned fruit, cereal, croissants, rolls, ham, cheese etc.... More
