Very noisey. On a busy road and walls are paper thin - you can here everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) from the neighbours. The water pressure was woefully and one morning there was no hot water at all. The furniture and fixtures were clean but old (think seventies). The rooms didn't have doors just curtains and the lighting was... More

Cookies sugar tea and coffee in living room. Spacious balcony! Great free wifi and air con! Was quite hard to find- TIP- it's past the big arch in a little... More

For crowded families, it may be an alternative but, it is not very close to historical places that you want to visit. you can only pay between 9am to 17pm. if you are leaving early in the morning, pay one day before. the rooms are smelly. they make you accept the responsbility of losses of kitchen equipment and they gave...

The residence is close to a tram stop and also a bus stop, and is a few minutes away from SMN. It is a safe place, and the rooms are spacious. The carpet is old, and there is no heating in the summer, even if the night temperature falls down to 11-15 degrees C. It is best not to open... More

The room is grungy and things are outdated, but that was actually tolerable. What wasn't tolerable was the sheer rudeness I experienced with ONE bald, older employee in particular. I have been nice to him, greeting him, and smiling even when he was making condescending remarks for three days, but I couldn't take it anymore my last day. Not only... More

The Residence used to be good, now it's no longer trying to keep up. Our suite for this stay smelt continually of cigarette smoke - even when we aired the room, when we came back it stank again. The walls to the next room were paper thin - they complained (by banging on the wall!) when we had the TV... More

Great location. Walking distance for most of tourists attractions. Secure paid parking, but the hotel was really dirty. The balconies and the room floor looked like has never been clean before. The room I was in had a small kitchen that also seemed dirty. Expensive for that conditions.

Residence Porta al Prato is a great option for plain and simple accommodation. I visit Florence last December from the 15th till 19th and Residence Porta al Prato provided me with a pleasant experience overall. My family had only arrived at Florence at close to 11pm due to a luggage issue at Rome Fiumicino Airport and the staff at the... More

Porta al Prato is a real residence. However, there is a block of rooms that rent to tourists. The amenities are nice: a lounge with water to fill drinking containers for the walks into Florence, vending machines, books on racks, and a washing machine and dryer in the basement. Staff was exemplary.

These people should really remove what they represent in the Internet it's really not fit for human or animal habitation. Dirty dusty and dated. Outside cracking and falling apart. They will take to your money over the Internet and not refund it. If you want to spoil your holiday book there. Web sites should remove it . It's really a... More
