We stayed here for 3 nights in a large comfortable room. The view from the window was amazing but we did find it noisy at night. This was solved by shutting the windows but it was very hot and and the fan wasn't quite adequate for the large room.The location was great and a handy walk to the train station... More

Can't beat the location; view of the Duomo square from our window! Very roomy and comfortable room. Shared bath wasn't a problem (always one available). Wifi only in common area. A bit loud due to street traffic, but completely blocked if the windows are closed. Overall, great value!

The hotel was as we expected, and had everything we needed. The beds are firm but comfortable and we had a view of the Duomo square out of our window. Couldn't beat the location. The host at this hotel is very helpful, and recommended great restaurants that we tried on the two nights we had in Florence. The room did... More

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights this June. The very best thing about this hotel is its location. You're literally in the center of Florence and thus can walk anywhere. The owner Umberto (my apologies in advance if I spell his name wrong) is very friendly. The room is comfortable enough for 2 persons and clean. If I... More

But let me tell you what experience you will have: the experence of staying in a 800 year old house the antique fresco's decorating the walls, a view of the duomo from your bedroom window,... More

Perfect location with a view of the Duomo. We had a shared bathroom which was always available and clean. Wi fi not available in rooms but available in the common area. Very helpful owner . Worthwhile recommendations for restaurants and travel etc. 10 mins from station. Good value in Florence.

This hotel provided great value at the time of our stay (Easter weekend). For 75 Euros a night, it provided simple, clean accomodations within walking distance of the train station, and just steps from the Duomo. The bathrooms are located outside the bedrooms, and can be either shared or private depending on how much you pay, but were kept clean.... More

On a trip with three girlfriends, we got a two-bedroom at this hotel and we were more than pleased. Arriving by train, we easily walked to the hotel (very close). The owner is very kind and helped us move our luggage into the room. Best thing about the place is the location! The windows opened out into the main square... More

The hotel was just in the middle of Florence, just 10 meters away of Piazza del Duomo. It was not a luxury hotel, it was very simple, but clean and comfortable for a short visit in this city. As in my travels is very important to invest more money on visiting museums, galleries or other attractions, I think it is... More
