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

BAD SERVICE! The worst breakfast any of us have ever had at a hotel, dated rooms, terrible location, all around awful really. Stay closer to town if you want to be within walking distance of ANYTHING! Even a cafe is miles away.

I have stayed here several times, the night manager is one of the rudest men I have ever encountered. Shouting at customers, slamming doors and slamming his hand on the counter. The rest of the staff are lovely, it's a shame he has to let down the place. In all my years on this earth I have never met a... More

I've delayed writing this review since I've been confused about my feelings. Objectively, there was plenty to criticise: broken fan in bathroom, locked room safe deposit box, no ice in bar, no glasses in bar - all things that in a more professionally-run hotel would never have occurred. But subjectively we quite liked it, there was an atmosphere of cheerful... More

We didn't experience all of the bad things in the other reviews (maybe they have sorted some out) but it wasn't the best of hotels. The general rooms were fine and clean, but the bathroom was a bit of a nightmare. It was small, with no where to hang the shower head, so you had to hold it as you... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel is not near anything. Upon arriving we were told that there was no hot water and would be rectified shortly. Two days later we still did not have hot water despite the hotel manager stating that it was fixed, cold brown water came out when the... More

Basic and with outdated decor, but clean. Cleanliness is more important to me than decor. Nice room for the price. Nice view of the river from sixth floor room. Great front desk staff-- helped us navigate bus routes. Comfortable bed, but I did not get much sleep due to the noise. The neighbors TV kept me from sleeping, as well... More
