Its a cheap guest house in the centre of Florence. At night it was noisy from the street and I had issues with mosquitoes. (take note they bite). Owner was very friendly, room was very small. When I arrived the owner explained that he didn't have a room for me but had booked me into another hotel across the street... More

I booked this guest-house with booking.com as I usually do. However, my flight got a 3h delay and, in consequence, I arrived 21:05 at the property in which I found a note containing the 2 e-mails he had been sending me since 19:40, telling that the guest-house was not a hotel with 24h service, that my reservation was cancelled as...

I stayed for two nights in Sani's, and I'll stay again if needed. The building, as every building in Florence, is very well taken cared, the rooms were cozy and everything was clean and the wireless internet was pretty good. Mr. Sani is very nice and helpful. Besides all that, the location I think is key. The value for money... More

The staff seemed grumpy and weary at first but he turned out to be very friendly and helpful. The complementary breakfast was provided at lovely local cafe down the street, the selection was a choice of... More
