Room was only €40 so you cannot expect much. The location is perfect; right in the heart of Florence. The rooms are clean and the staff is incredibly helpful. The building is a bit strange as it is on the 4th floor of a residential building but for one night this is a great hotel.

There is a very common theme for reviews of this hotel. It really is all about the location. We could lean out of our window 4 floors up and see Ponte Vecchio. Turn right out of the front door and in 20 steps you're looking at Palazzio Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery. For that, the price is incredible. I think some... More

The location here is amazing. You are in the heart of Florence. One minutes walk to the Duomo and Giotto's tower. One minute walk to the bridge with the houses on it, one minute walk to the markets and many gelaterias! The rooms are good. No tv, but it's not needed as your always out and about! They are clean...

As mentioned by the other reviewers, the location of the hotel is GREAT, <2mins from Piazza della Signoria where the Uffizi museum is & <5mins frm Ponte Vecchio. You can walk everywhere in central Florence, from the train station SMN to the hotel is about <15min. Right outside the hotel, there is a 'tourist market' selling leather jackets/bags & other...

Great location and I absolutely love the fact that I could just walk to Piazza della Signoria in less than a minute. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. Other tourist attractions are all within walking distance to the hotel. Our room was small but clean and the bathroom is a good size though shower area is tiny. Excellent wifi and... More

You could not find a better location in Florence. A short walk everywhere and only about a 15 minute walk to the train station. Restaurants everywhere just out the door. Ponte Vecchio bridge just a few minutes. Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi museum just a couple minutes walk. Our room was a bit small, but it was very clean... More

I've been here for a three night stay this October with my girlfriend. We took the en-suite room, a must for us (the other options were private bathroom not en-suite or shared bathroom - I guess that this is due to the fact that the hotel was originally a group of flats that have been converted). The location is really... More

Loved this quirky little hotel on the fourth floor of an old building. The location can't be beat. We were just minutes to all of the sights and some of the best restaurants. Our room was small but very clean and it had an excellent bathroom. We were so comfortable there and felt well taken care of by the staff.... More

Steps from the Piazza della Signora, in the heart of Florence, stands what must be one of the best value hotels in all of Europe! You will know you're in Florence if you stay here, and I mean that in the best possible way. The rooms are small and basic but clean and comfortable. Service is friendly and courteous. The... More
