Close to the train station but very confusing. The front door has two signs, one for a hotel one for another place. We went into the tiny old fashioned lift up to third floor where it said Hotel Ottaviani to find no reception just an empty space, we stood there for 15 minutes trying to work out what was going...

We arrived at night, the staff was not very friendly. The rooms are but rather tight, there are 'private' showers, but but the shower is literally in the same room as the beds. We only had cold water in the showers. There is no free wifi, they want 3€ for 24h access. Would not go here again.

Clean rooms and wc. Poor breakfast. Very hot rooms. We loved one of the receptionist but the other two were a little rude. No noise, friendly room buddies :) Good location near some bars, gelato, a cute square.

This was a very last minute booking coz everything else was booked in Florence due to some conference. We had actually booked some other hotel, but the guy who came to receive us till the main road took us to Ottaviani instead. He said that it was owned by the same guy and was similar to the 'Hotel" we booked.... More

I booked a bed in a girls only 4 bed room in Hotel Toscana. When I checked in they took me a block away to Hotel Ottaviani. The room wasn't too bad, just four single beds, however the patio door wouldn't shut properly. The main issue I had were the bathrooms. The closest one to my room had no hot... More

My girlfriend and i stayed at "hotel" Ottaviani for a total of 3 nights in July. The reason why i wrote "hotel", is because i think it's a joke to call it anywhere near a hotel. We did expect to find lower standards, because that of the price, and we knew that we would be sharing the room with 2... More

stayed here for 4 nights, shared bathroom with about 16 other people, the shower head is above the toilet which gets the toilet wet and toilet roll soggy. You can be waiting between 15-40 minutes for a shower. In 4 days didn't have one hot shower, nights were loud, people bagging doors, stomping around, traffic outside. Couldn't get wifi in... More

The only good thing going for this hotel is the location. The staff didn't even have a smile to share and were not helpful at all. Room for 4 people was very cramped and stuffy. There was a ceiling fan for cooling which was not working properly. If you had the windows open at night you heard all the street... More

It was okay. Didnt like the bathroom. The door was translucent. My roomates were girls so it felt kinda awkward. The plugs were put in a strange behind my bed. The wifi was good tho. The staff was really nice because my friend left the key inside and he just gave the extra key to us.

This hotel was not worth the price. We were four persons staying at Hotel Ottaviani for three nights during our visit in Florence while we were inter-railing. The room we slept in was dirty and so was the bathroom (there were dirty towels on the floor and a lot of hair in the shower), we had a private shower in... More
