Loved the rooftop patio as a quiet refuge from the busy city below. Convenient 5 minute walk to train station and cathedral. A quiet, comfortable (air conditioned!), and friendly hotel. Always received a greeting and a smile upon leaving or returning. The breakfast buffet was very good.

I stayed for one night since it is pretty close to train station. The owner of the hotel is very friendly. He and His son were very helpful. Since it is a budget hotel I don't have any exception before checkin. After checkin, the room were pretty fine and better that what I excepted. Bathroom and Bed were very clean.... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights while on a bus trip through Europe. The room we got was cheaper then what the recommended hostel through the bus trip was offering and i found it really nice. The room was big and we had our own balcony (no view but not an issue). The bathroom was big and... More

After I got over the budget qualities, I really liked this hotel! It is centrally located and a very short and easy (not counting cobble-stones!) walk from the train station. The hotel is located a bit on the edge of a dark area, but I always felt safe. Just open the door and look to the right to get a... More

Booked this hotel for a overnight stay in Florence as it was 2 blocks form the Duomo and a very reasonable price. Room was small and a little old fashioned, but it had great WIFI, air-conditioning and included breakfast. The location was very quiet even though it was so centrally located. The balcony is a great place to sit at... More

Although the hotel was not our "style" we did appreciate the welcome from the family and breakfast included. We also enjoyed the location of the hotel... Excellent! The room & bathroom were cramped and dated but for one nights stay it was suffice. Just wasn't the usual hotel we stay at but nonetheless a clean and simple stay with a... More
