These rooms are on the other side of the river in a neat neighborhood, plenty of restaurants. A neat little bar/restaurant a block away that makes great spritz's. Our room was good size and clean. You're an easy walk to the main square. We walked from the train station with no problems.

We spent two days at Althea Rooms. The room was ok and very clean. This is the only thing that saves the score. The bathroom was so tiny I could not turn myself inside it without bumping here or there; the basin was..man.. I didn't know there were some so tiny. I let you image what it meant shaving on...

Its an amazing place, however the location was not as expected. Easy to get from the station, a 15min walk, so its easy with small luggages. Everything works perfectly in the room, had no trouble. The owner is helpful, guided us which places to go, a really good experience overall. I wouldn't recommend it with family, its more for backpackers.

This hotel is located on the "other side" of the Arno in Florence but don't be concerned, everything is within walking distance in Florence. You're right next to the sprawling Pitti Palace, about 5 minutes walk to the Arno and the start Florence's shopping district and maybe 10 minutes to the Uffizi. The room itself was clean and the beds... More

The hotel is tucked away in a small alley near Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens (5 minutes by foot). In fact Florence is not a big city, during my stay I walked from the hotel to all the attractions and only had to catch a bus when carrying my luggage from/to the train station. The room was clean, comfortable and... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. First, the manager was very pleasant, showed all good restaurants and sights. The location is great. The only bad thing was that the fridge is actually a freezer so our food was iced.

I stayed at the Althea Rooms three nights. The price was reasonable, and the room clean and well maintained. I had accidentally booked only two nights, but the staff was very gracious when I stayed the third. On check-in, I was provided with a map of Florence, and Antonio found the address where my friends were staying and marked that,... More

I loved my 7 night stay at Althea Rooms in Florence. It was very clean. In a perfect part of town just a short walk from everything yet, on a quiet street. The staff was extremely friendly. It was a cute apartment type of room. The bed was comfortable with a desk and computer. It had a home feel to... More
