My mom and I stayed here together in the room overlooking the busy main street. The noise blocking windows do an excellant job (though you may wish to have ear plugs). The two bathrooms were always SUPER clean and having bidets available after a morning of stickey walking is fantastic. The owners were great -they were unobtrusive but available for... More

The location is quite far from the centre in terms of Florence, but then again in any other city I would be saying it is bery central, so I can't really fault the place there. Unfortunately the air-con only worked in one of the rooms so two of the 5 of us were very hot at night! Also, there was... More

This charming hostel is contained within a small area. There are about 4 rooms and 2 bathrooms which were cleaned regularly and thoroughly. Our room was quite nice and even had a television, although all the channels are in Italian hehe. The air-con was a bit weak but eventually it kicked in. Breakfast is pre packaged and not great but... More

The rooms are basic, but they are clean and reasonably priced. There are two bathrooms, adequate to share with other guests. The best thing about the guesthouse is that it doesn't cost the earth and the 15 minute walk from the historic centre of the city is a good way to work off dinner. Luxurious it isn't. This is fairly... More

You get what you pay for. Very basic, bare esentials. Cold water showers! Mini kitchen with cooking facilities/fridge inside a cupboard. Included breakfast is prepacked. Two bathrooms/toilets to share-should be time limit to allow for guests that are inconsiderate! A word of warning-if you wash out your clothes and you are in a backroom, beware of hanging them on the... More

The nice thing about this place is the location. It's right next to the train station. There isn't any 24 reception. And it's more of the basic hotel. I imagine hostels to be more of a social atmosphere, but there is no common gathering place. It's just the rooms and the bathrooms. The nice thing about it was tour of... More

A very nice, clean and all-equipped room close to the main station and to the center of the city. You can reach historical place in Just 10 minutes or a bit more by walk. But the strongest point is the owner and the staff, kind, polite and easy going, that will make you feel as in your home. We suggest... More

Room was charming and so was the staff. Near the train station. We went almost everywhere by foot. Lots of helpful tips from the staff (where to go, eat, etc.) Will definitely go there again!

I stayed at Il Giglio for four nights in November, 2011. I was an older woman traveling alone and had misgivings when I learned that the owners didn't reside on the premises. I felt safe at all times here. My room and both bathrooms were spotless. The bed was most comfortable. It was quiet inside day and night even with... More
