OK, It's $56 a night in Florence Italy...so what do you expect, right? Well....I never expected the little guy behind the counter to act like we were checking into an exclusive Italian resort hotel! Granted we got in late, around midnight, but I let them know we would be arriving late. He proceeded to give us lip about not calling... More

We stayed 2 nights and had a series of unfortunate events mar an otherwise fairly pleasant experience. The first night, there was a loud fight at the "front desk" that resulted in an angry (and possibly drunk?) patron pulling the fire alarm. The night receptionist didn't know the password to turn it off so it sounded for multiple hours until... More

I stayed in a private room and whilst there was nothing fancy, it was nothing less than expected of a one star hotel. It is wonderfully located for walking to the main attractions of Florence, and super close to the SMN train station. Importantly for me, I felt safe leaving my things there while I was out an about. The... More

Service was pretty poor. People were kind of rude and not helpful. Showers weren't good and the rooms were kind of falling apart. If you're traveling on a budget/not expecting much though, this place isn't horrible. Location right by everything you wanna see and beds, etc. are acceptable. The breakfast is jokes though so don't even bother.

We found this place very last minute and kind of had no choice but to stay here because every place was booked. It was soo over priced for what we got. My sister and I stayed in a double bed room that was hot, smelled, and the bathroom sink drain spewed water all over the floor everytime you turned it... More

I've never wrote a TripAdvisor review because they aren't really my thing, but gosh... Someone needs to stop these outrages... First of all, they give you pictures that do NOT show the real rooms. Those are either fakes or rooms of whatever hotel that they stole to make their 'thing' (I honestly can't call that a hotel) look 'acceptable'. It... More

Although it is good located, close to S. M. Novella station, it is a bad choice! Toilets are dirty, poor infrastructure, only 3 plugs in a room with 6 beds. Wi-fi does not work. And you need to pay 2 euros to keep your luggage in the hostel. It is not expensive but I do not recommend it!

Even though it is a small one star hotel, the personnel is highly qualified, and made our trip nicer. The common bath was never occupied, the room was clean. Thank you for your hospitality! You deserve more than a chocolate:) and I forgot....the location in great, right in the center Irina & Mircea
