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

The staff were friendly and very helpful with getting us settled in and giving us directions. The wifi worked well, but would only work in the lobby. The bathroom was clean and spacious, however each bathroom has many designated rooms so you could end up waiting a while in the morning. The beds were comfortable and clean and there was... More

Originally booked at the Locando Rocco hotel but when we arrived we saw the sign on the door saying the hotel was closed for refurbishment and we needed to go into the reception in the hotel opposite. We were a bit confused (would help if the sign was bigger!) but the nice lady from the other hotel brought us over... More

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.
