Less than a 5 min. walk from the train station (Termini) this hotel is super convenient and a good price for rather expensive Florence. There's a lovely garden courtyard with shady seating for breakfast or an afternoon lull. Rooms are small but clean and pretty; ours had a working computer and big windows opening to the garden. Reception was friendly... More

We wanted to stay in a nice hotel while in Florence, but the prices were so insanely high that we started looking at hostels with private rooms, and chanced on Archi Rossi Hostel. After a 5 minute walk from the main train station, we arrived at the hotel and were directed to the next entrance, called Mia Cara, which is... More

We stayed at the Mia Cara for 3 nights Feb 2014. I can honestly say its the worst breakfast we've ever experienced in a European hotel. The website photos are COMPLETELY inaccurate! The 'hot' food was in fact cold and inedible. We would have been fine with toast and jam and, maybe , a hard boiled egg as a bonus.... More

We got to Archi Rossi, but they sent us to Mia Cara, with no reason. Once we got to Mia Cara the concierge, in a very bad way, sent us back to Archi Rossi to do the check in. The garden connected both hotels but as Archi Rossi is a hostel and the other one a hotel, of course there... More

We booked a double room with ensuite bathroom at this hostel and I was pleasantly surpised when we arrived. The room was separate from the main hostel but using the same facilities - reception, washing room, dining room etc. The room was clean and comfortable and had a pc with free internet. Breakfast was great and you could buy a... More

My husband and I stayed at Archi Rossi and were quite impressed. It was very near the train station, and an easy walk to all the sites. We booked a private double, and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was in the "Mia Cara" hotel part of the place. We entered through the regular front door of the hostel, then... More

Stayed there for just one night, as I had an interview the day after. Comfortable room, free use of their PC and internet in the room, very clean bathroom and a TV. Located close to the main train station and with other free things such as dinner, breakfast and waking tour (included in the price). I will stay here again... More

We made a reservation for a group in November 2011. The hostel has a good location, in the city center of Florence and a few minutes away from the train station. The staff was very helpful (they offer free guided tours every day) and the rooms ans bathrooms were clean, which is not always the case in this kind of... More

Great location in Florence and the map they provide is also very handy! The room i was in, however, was very crowded and unluckily the people i was sharing with had very little respect for other people's sleep! It was clean, had good wifi and the included breakfast was okay but not buffet style which meant you were restricted in... More
