We struggled to find it as the street numbers are crazy! Once we did we were happy with our choice. We chose the triple room with en-suite bathroom. The room was on the 3rd floor not suitable for elderly or disabled as there is no lift. The room is very basic with no air conditioning, this was what spoilt are... More

The hotel is really close to the Duomo which makes it easy to go everywhere by walking. The hotel looks exactly like on the pictures, really cool decoration everywhere in an old building. They serve a decent breakfast. Everyone was really helpful and kind at the reception and breakfast, made our stay memorable. For the price we paid for two... More

Hotel is basic but comfortable and good service. Great location and a wonderful city. Bathrooms were always clean and breakfast is a good continental style. Staff are attentive and helpful, would definitely recommend and stay again.

Hotel was in a great location! However it doesn't have air conditioning and in the summer it was probably 85 degree in our room with no breeze. We had a shared bathroom, which is as expected...shared. This place might be better in the winter, but I would not return in the summer.

Great location, helpful staff, very clean & great breakfast ! Would recommend to friends. 2mins walk from Dumo & 5/10mins from most other major cultural attractions in Florence. Very safe area, near all types of shops as well. Good relevant local information & tour info in reception area. Very quiet at night considering it is so central.

We loved everything about our stay at Bavaria. Well, except for the shared bathroom, which meant you often had to wait to use the WC or the shower in the evenings & mornings. That is an inconvenience that that is overshadowed by the great service and helpfulness from the staff, the lovely rooms that were properly cleaned every day, the... More

Good hotel if you are on a budget. I am solo female traveler and felt very safe. Free wifi but only in the common area. No A/C but windows can open which helps. I did get a few bug bites, but I had to choose my battles. You do share a shower and toilette but each room has a sink.... More

The hotel is located on the 3rd floor that you find through an unmarked door. The rooms were large, sink included with a mirror and hair dryer. 2 shared bathrooms on the floor were not an issue. My sister and I never had to wait for one. Breakfast in the morning consisted of cereal, yogurt, canned fruit cocktail, bread (hard... More
