First let me say if you want a 4 star hotel experience this is not for you. The location is amazing The owners/manager is awesome The sheets were clean The rooms were clean enough The hotel is run down. Some plaster missing in the ceiling and stains on the carpet. If you have high standards go someplace else. For us... More

The hotel is close to piazza della repubblica, not too hard to find- down an alley, but close to the designer strip. The room was large and simple, small bathroom. Continental style breakfast, amazing cappuccinos. Lots of stairs in entrance of hotel. My experience was that the room was clean.

This hotel is cheap-ish, great location, and nice owner, but it is so dirty! The carpet was so so gross. We change hotels and fora better location and $15 more we have a great place around the corner.

I have stayed there just 8 days. I think location is great, rooms are clean and personnel helped me about everything. Breakfeast is simple but delicious. I can suggest this place everyone who wants to come Florence.

This very old, very small downtown Hotel is extremely hard to find. It is basically in an alley right next to Gucci row, so it is in an excellant location, right in the middle of things. But although it says parking garage, what it means is that you pay 28 Euro a night to park because it is not their... More

We just arrived here yesterday, and it is such a cute place! Rooms are simple, beds and bathroom are clean, carpet is not too clean and has cigarette holes throughout. The best things about this room is the windows with shutters (very Firenze), and the glass doors leading to a 3 meter squared patio, complete with table, chairs, and window... More

Hotel Esperanza, situated on the corner of Via dell'Inferno and Via del Purgatorio (romantic, eh?) deep in the heart of the old town is not easily accessible. Better don't try it by car (we did), not sure, if it's any better by taxi. Later on, however, all the sights are only a short walk away. The hotel is very modestly... More

When arriving in Florence on our honeymoon our original hotel (Hotel Medici) had electrical problems and redirected us to Hotel Esperanza. The man that greeted us was very nice, but I was not impressed with the hotel. It was down a creepy alleyway, and located above a mechanic and garage. It was very noisy in the morning. The carpet in... More

We expected basic rooms for the price in Florence, and that is exactly what we got for about $60/night for a double. The owner was sweet and helpful and the location was excellent. Breakfast was packaged and simple, beds semi-comfortable and some ceiling and walls cracked. There was a lot of noise from the car garage immediately below - with... More

I was looking for somewhere simple at the last minute and hostels were all full. The charming old guy at reception was friendly and helpful. Wifi was excellent. The room was basic and the bed wasn't great but I had no troubles sleeping. Some mosquitos at night because I left the window open. Woke up a bit early due to... More
