When we arrived the guy was very nice, showed us our room. There is no elevator so prepare to carry your luggage upstairs. The rooms were very clean, and so was the shared bathroom. Its supposed to be a bed and breakfast, but not the bed and breakfast Americans are used to with a buffet in the morning. In the... More

A very strange place with no reception , we received an email that gave us a code to enter the building then there were directions of how to get to our room. A very quiet place , with two bathrooms and extremely good wifi which was great , everything was extremely clean and our room was very cosy and had... More

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
