This hotel is basic but perfect for a budget stay. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. It is located a 5 minute walk from the main station and is easily navigated from anywhere in the city. It's close to everything! The owners are very nice and although you have to ring the bell for entry, they're very... More

The Hotel Merlini is just the sort of place we love to stay. It is a family run 'pensione' with shared bathing facilities, although we did have a sink in our room which is very useful for shaving and teeth cleaning. The family members spoke little English, but we communicated well enough, there are books left by other travellers in... More

From the pictures on the website and the TA reviews this sounded like a great budget option for our stay in Florence. We paid 75 euros/night for a double with a shared bathroom and breakfast each morning, which seemed reasonable compared to prices elsewhere. We booked directly with the hotel as we specifically wanted the room overlooking the duomo, however... More

The best part about the hotel was the location. We took many day trips from Florence and it was a five minute walk to the train station. It was also a ten minute walk down to the duomo. The room and bed were clean but the family who owns the hotel smokes in the hotel and you could smell it... More

Pretty basic hotel, but made nice by the family who run it, the cheap price and the proximity to everything. There are three flights of stairs which made getting the pram and my ever expanding pasta girth up the flights a little difficult. They love kids and were great with our baby, but so it seems are everyone in Italy.... More

This b&b is located only a few minutes walk from the main train station and is a short walk to all main attractions. The staff were very nice and welcoming. Our room was very large, spacious and clean and had a cute view of rooftops outside. The breakfast was great - varied pastries, fruit, juice and cappuccinos. Just a note:... More

Very good location , central but also quit, basically perfect.Rooms are large and clean. what you need for a short stay. Good value for money. Definitely suggested if you want a budget hotel and do not mind climb 3 floor of stairs without elevator.
