No elevators whatsoever, if you have a heavy luggage,be ready to climb stairs. breakfast is subpar compare to other hotels I've stayed in Italy in same price range. We stayed their 2 days, but our room was not cleaned on 2nd day. Also the noise at night is LOUD! since you hear all the drunkards walking on main streets. Now... More

The hotel is very good. It's within walking distance from the main train station and also the city main landmarks. Very clean. Good breakfast. good hot shower, big room. Internet sucks and it's not free. I'd stay there again.

Arrived at hotel and as soon as entered was met with an old musty smell. No elevator and carted luggage up 4 flights of stairs. Took one look at room, smelly, bathroom dirty, turned around and left. Thank goodness my cousin lives in Florence and found us another place to stay. I can't believe that this is listed as a... More

The carpet and bed spread stained. The bathroom was dirty, the room smelled of sewage. No elevator and no help getting suitcases up and down stairs. Could not bring myself to even try breakfast. Stayed one night to be woken up by a load noise made by sewage removal truck.

After booking this as a secret hotel we dreaded our arrival after reading reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff at the reception were very friendly and approachable. Our room was on the top floor and there are a lot of stairs to walk up but it was fine. When we walked into our room we had no complaints.... More

Our air con didnt even have an on button, pillows were thinner than paper, no elevator and were staying in the top floor with a... More

Before going any further you need to know the cost of our room for 2 nights was 153 euros. This hotel has a great location about 2 blocks from the train station, about 2 blocks from the Duomo (which is fantastic),1 block from the touring busses, about a 15 minute walk to the Birdge of Gold (Ponte Vecchio), and a...

We stayed here because of its role in a piece of history. The Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre in Paris in 1911. It was missing for 2 1/2 years until the thief Vincenzo Perugia negotiated its return to French authorities. He was staying at this hotel on the top floor with the priceless painting hidden in his room.... More

I booked the hotel through "hotelscombined.com" Olotels. It's no way 3 star but 1.5 star hotel. When I did my selection, it was WiFi free of charge included in the room and to find out on arrival WiFi is charged additional and quite pricey for it too. So maybe hotels combined need to fix this up on their website details.... More

Client service is not good, beds are not comfortable at all (aged mattresses), there is no elevator and building has a lot of chairs, WiFi is not included and charged at a high price. Location is good (between train station and main touristic places).
