Like most hotels in florence it was handy to everything including the station, restaurants, markets etc. Basic accommodation but had everything you would require for the cost. Reception staff were very helpful. Basically if you want more plush surroundings then you have to be prepared to pay more.

It's in a rundown section of the city. The rooms (our room, anyway) are small and cramped. We had a problem with the toilet that was not fixed. I asked, reasonably so, for fresh bath towels on our second day and was snootily told "5 star hotels change the towels every day, we do it every second day." You can't... More

Walking distance from the train station, centrally located. Rooms are clean but small and cramped. Everything in the room creaked ; the tables, cupboard doors, the bed. They offered complimentary breakfast, but the spread didn't have many options. Staff is courteous , friendly and very helpful. All you need in Florence is a good nights sleep and a centrally located... More

This hotel had helpful and friendly staff. The room was a great size for a quad room. ( the best we had in Italy). Everything was with easy walking distance. Would recommend this hotel for families travelling with children.

Location was good for this hotel but room was very small and bathroom even smaller. Rooms linen also is not being changed daily but I guess that is ok. Everything from Piazaalo e signora to the famous river was near. Just walking from Railway station (less then one km. Breakfast was very basic and again europeon style but not too... More

The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful. Breakfast is included in the price, and it was good with pastries, cold meats, and fruit. It is within a walkable distance of the train station and all major sites within Florence. It is right on a main street with thin walls; if you are a light sleeper, you may want... More

Our agent chose this one because it was both close to the train station and the city sights; in addition we were only staying one night. The staff was friendly but not helpful when we did not have hot water the night of our stay....reason given: too many guests checking in. The problem was resolved in the morning...thankfully. The room... More

We convenient location! About 10-15 min walk to the train station and everything is relatively close. The 'Italy on a budget' tours company is directly opposite for those wanting an awesome day out! (18-35 ages). The hotel has a buffet breakfast with yummy cakes, toast, cereal, coffee, juice etc (no hot food but still filling). There is an elevator and... More

The hotel itself wasn't outstanding but we didn't expect it to be for the good price we got it for. What did make it amazing was the extremely helpful and friendly member of staff there called 'Adriano'. He made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived, spoke great English and showed us exactly where to go around Florence. The... More

We are have a great stay so far. Convenient location! Easy access to central market and downtown. The breakfast isn't that great but we don't leave hungry. The staff is friendly and eager to help. The wifi isn't the greatest also but I'm sure they would work with you if you had any issues with it.
