As per the title clean but basic, good place to use as a base. Breakfast is not much more than corn flakes and some bread rolls with ham n cheese but at the rates we paid you couldn't expect much more. Does need a little love an updating it's retro in the fact that's it's still stuck in the late... More

I just read all the reviews written for this hotel. Lot of negativity. However, i loved this hotel. Next time, i go to Florence, i am definitely staying at this hotel. The location is easy. the bus stop is sella 02 i think, it is accessible from Santa Maria Nouvella. You can have a good dinner at the hotel's restaurant.... More

I read some negative reviews about this hotel, but my experience was very positive. It is fine retro style hotel (3 star , not 4 star), room at 6th floor was clean and comfortable enough (there is a terrasse on the 6th floor with a view to the Florence center). Yes , furniture was not like new from factory but... More

Stayed at this hotel last year in November. Its was hotel very far off from railway station, unkept dirty rooms with wet carpet which was smelling damp. The toilet and shower was so tiny that it was difficult to just stretch. Staff was very discourteous never responded to our requests and quarries during our 2 night stay. The travel agenyt... More

Like many who have stayed here, I presume I was taken in by the fact that this hotel had a 4-star rating. Only after I had booked did I learn that the star rating system in Italy is effectively meaningless and unregulated. As a student, I am used to staying in some pretty unsavoury places. As a result, I didn't... More

Terrible Terrible service and the rooms were absolutely disgusting! First off, our room air con was broken and only blowing out hot air. We went to... More

This hotel has filthy rooms and is in a terrible location. Its a long way out of town with no cafes close by. The bed spreads were stained. Bathrooms and showers were tiny. Breakfast was terrible. Choose another hotel while in Florence.

Location not great, but nearby bus takes you into the City Centre. If you don't mind walking a few blocks, there are some nice restaurants across the river, just be careful crossing the busy streets. Overall, I'd say the room itself was clean, including the bathroom. The room was small and the furnishings are a bit old and worn but... More

Only stayed one night as travelling. Staff friendly and helpful. Room average, shutter on balcony did not work had to push up manually with some degree of noise or crawl underneath as conscious of upsetting close local neighbours as we were at back of hotel. Decor needs refreshing In places, aircon was ok and had a good nights sleep. Bathroom... More
