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

Comfortable, relatively clean (for Italy) and good value. You get what you pay for and the staff are quite friendly if you're polite- I recommend staying here if you want to save money and still be in a good location! Make sure you take the stairs, though- part of our group took the tiny lift and it got stuck for... More

The location of the hotel was very good. It was very near to city center and also near to touristic places and cafes.. The rooms are clean. But Restaurant part is poor.. We didn't spent so much time at the hotel but it Would be better if their restaurant was larger and richer.
