At first yes, we are quite shocked of the outlook of the hostel, but its warm enough to stay here.. It is a very convenient place to stay, with nice bed, average shower room and last but not least, the warm welcoming staff here. He was not so friendly at first but after some times of communicating, he is friendly... More

I had a love-hate relationship with this hotel. I loved it because after walking and exploring (a cold and windy) Florence for 10-12 hours on end I had a place to come back to and just crash.Any place would have done it, really ,as I'm not particularly picky but I have to say "Are you kidding me Ottaviani?" on the...

Stayed here for two nights. Sleep quality was bad because the street outside was really noisy and the window didn't shut properly. The lady in the reception wasn't very friendly. It was around 60 steps to get up to the reception and 81 steps in total to get to our room. It was not very nice to carry our luggage... More

The Good... Cool apartment. Free wifi though it wasn't described on the website. Fantastic location - a few min walk from Santa Maria basilica and 10min from the Duomo. Good value. As we were leaving at midday, the guy at Hotel Toscana let us store luggage for free, though he usually charges (the guy at Hotel Toscana gave great service).... More

Horrible and very old. I think the furniture is not been changed since 1970. Also too expensive. €70 per night with shared bathroom! I will never go back again. The only good thing about this pensione is that it's in the city center.

Good budget with minimum service. Location is perfect though! 4 minutes from train station, 5 from historical center! I stayed in a dorm with 3 other people. Rooms are clean. Staff could be more friendly...

I've booked a room a month before, but in 2 days before the arrival day, this hostel just "inform" me on phone that there's no room for me! (NOT trying to help me to solve the problem which should be their responsibility to do so). Where the hell can I sleep with just 2 days to book a room in... More

Ottaviani was great. The beds were the most comfortable we've had so far after staying in almost 5 hostels. We have no complaints about anything really. It was a bit cold the first night but blankets were provided. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and we met some great people in the common area. The train station is only a... More
