This hotel is great, but the location is the best part! It is in the center of Florence! There are so many great cafes, gelato bars, and shops nearby. It is a short walk to many sites in the old city. It is a bit noisy at night, but that didn't really bother us. The room was nice and clean.... More

This is a small hotel with only a few rooms on the fourth floor of a city building. The location could not be better, and I would highly recommend it to you for that reason. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but clean and you are in Florence so shouldn't be spending much time in there... More

Stayed here in the middle of June with my girlfriend, great location right in the centre of florence.. You CANNOT get a more central location than this hotel. It is perfectly placed to see everything in florence. The only downside to this hotel is the noise from outside... if people decide to shout and be unnecessarily noisy outside you may... More

This hotel was a little challenging to find even after entering the beautiful front door but once found proved to be a gem in the middle of Florence. It is on the 4th floor and you need to use the small lift at the end of the corridor. The position is amazing right in the middle of Florence less than... More

We had a hard time finding the hotel as we were expecting to see a big sign on the street with a hotel building. The location is excellent, in the middle of all the action in Florence, close to all the attractions and museums, and a walking distance from the bridge and the nice restaurants, cafes and gelaterias. Only the... More

You cannot be more in a heart of Florence than this. Price is excellent, our room and bathroom were spotless. We don't own TV, so we didn't miss it ;) You have all the landmarks on your doorstep, and as Florence is amazing, you will always be out and about. There is a great gellato place just behind the corner,... More

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...
