My girlfriend and I stayed for 5 nights in early September and I don't think we could've found a better alternative anywhere in Florence. As previous posts mention, the place is under new management, so I would disregard older reviews. I had payment issues as well but was not overly concerned by this. Now run by a lovely lady, Simona,... More

I stayed here 1 night before I had to fly early. It was not possible to pay by card (the machine refused it at the reception). I had to go alone, in the middle of the night, to get money from a cash machine. When checking in to the hotel earlier, the reception lady already said it is better to... More

We were a little worried when coming to Florence. We'd been looking for places mostly based on their price, but we wanted somewhere within walking distance of everything. Some of the reviews we had looked at were a bit worrying, but we had decided it was our best option. First thing to say: the management changed recently (about spring 2013),... More

I stayed here a week in July, and it was nice ! The residence is located in a quiet street, but isolated from possible noises by a corridor ending a courtyard where give rooms. It's perfect after tourist visits in Florence ! We had a useful kitchen, and our double bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately, tea or coffee are the... More

My girlfriend and I booked this hotel because we were on a budget, and got a lot more than we expected out of it. Bottom line: it's in a fantastic location and the rooms are great, but don't expect 4-star service (not that we did!) Bad first: you have to call someone when you arrive and wait for him to... More

The room we had was lovely, full of antique furniture, including an old pedal-operated sewing machine. The building itself is also very old and the ceiling has wooden beams across it, which are very attractive. The bed was large and very comfortable and the bathroom was decent. The only difficulty is that, since they have no reception, you have to... More

We were there for two nights, quite satisfied with the value of money and cleanliness of room. We hardly to get there as the road sign was missing. The benefit to stay at this apartment was very closed to tourist landmarks for e.g. Academia, IL Duomo, Lorenzo Medecee etc. The room was spacious, however there are some dampness and cigratte...

I booked a double room in June for only 50 euros, and was so pleasantly surprised to see that the room was furnished so beautifully for a cheap room! Clean, quiet, simply fantastic. Everything looked 4-star and the best part about the residence is the owner, who came by on his scooter to open up the place just for us... More
