I stayed here for one night after my study abroad programme ended, so it was basically just a place to grab some sleep before an early flight home. That being said, I would not be opposed to staying here on another trip to Florence, even for more than one night. My room was a single with the shared bath, which... More

Very good location, well equipped for a budget place, tv, wifi, shower in room. Paper thin walls and slamming "front" door was the only minus. Not cheap, but good price for incredibly expensive Florence.

Great location. In the middle between train station and Duomo. 3rd floor, no elevator but forget it. Kindly staff, clean bathroom.

Location: Great. Very central, walking distance to SMN. Access: 78 winding steps to get to the reception, skip this place if you have luggage. Comfort: Very poor. 2 small beds pushed together and sold as a double, I always subtract 2 for that stunt. Beds also awful, felt like a sheet of MDF on a few old springs. I woke... More

This hotel is perfectly located! Right between the Duomo and the train station. It's on the 3rd or 4th floor- we were fine walking up the stairs but some people may struggle. The rooms were clean, and the lady that worked there was quite friendly. The biggest drawback would be the bathroom. There's only 1 toilet for the whole hotel,... More

More than I expected from a 1 star hotel! I had the small corner room. The bed was comfortable, the heater worked, the toilet flushed, wifi was perfect, and the location is unbeatable. Some downsides were the 76 stairs to get up, the shower went between medium to warm heat (never really getting hot), there was no actual shower (just... More

Hubby and I stayed for 1 night in this hotel. We stayed in a double bed room with attached shower, but common WC. The place was well maintained and very conveniently located with respect to the railway station as well as the Duomo. The only pet peeve we had was the number of stairs to climb to get to the...
