This accommodation is very clean and comfortable, and it is exceptionally well located right near the Duomo and its square. Walk two blocks away from the action and you are in family run cafes and where the locals live - you are welcomed there. On the down side, our room had very little space around the beds. It has shared... More

Pros: - Right next to the Duomo - Close to the train station Co ns: - No wifi (in 2015, this is a must!!) - Have to pay cash (was not indicated at the moment of the booking..) - The owner insist on keeping the keys. Which means every time you leave you have to give her your keys and... More

Still interested? I've stayed in a lot of places around Europe, this is one of the worst. Difficult to sleep as its on the third level with no air con, the owner was very abrupt and was not happy when we arrived home at 1.01 for a 1am curfew... Didn't feel like a holiday! Also has no wifi access at... More

Still reading? Okay. The hotel has a fantastic location but that's it. No refrigerator. No wifi. No air conditioning. We stayed for 3 nights and never received fresh towels. 1 am curfew. It is super bare bones. I would not recommend this hotel.

Unforgettable stay in this pensione in the heart of Florence! Best value for money compared to other much more expensive spots! Located next to the duomo; if you want information don't hesitate to ask; someone is always there to answer and help you; not one of those places where the hotel is completely uattended to and where you have to...

We stayed here for three nights and it was great! The hotel is in the centre of the town and only a short walk from the train station. There is great security, two doors you buzz to get in and the owner keeps your keys as you go out. There are some stairs to get into the hotel, however i... More

I had some initial concerns about this place and almost canceled my nonrefundable reservation after reading the reviews about the creepy owner. Yes, it's true there are cameras everywhere, you can't take your keys with you when you leave (requiring an exchange EVERY time you come or go), and you have to be home by 1 a.m. However, the owner...

We had a tiny room with very basic furnishings and a sink (the bathroom was shared), but clean and quiet. The lady manager provided excellent hospitality. We truly enjoyed visiting this magnificent city.

This is a small family owned place with only 6 rooms. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The only downsides was there is no wifi and no breakfast. Other than that it was a great stay!

Hotel Canada was one of the best and cutest places I've stayed in. It was so close to everything--sites to see in either direction and only a block from the Duomo. I felt as though I had been adopted by the woman who runs the hotel, as she opened the door and said, "Welcome Home" whenever we arrived. The two... More
