I was initially attracted to the Black 5 Florence Suite for its location and atmosphere/interior design. This is not your typical hotel because you can only check in between 2-6pm. In addition to the minor check in inconvenience, the major issue was the noise. The walls are super thin and we had extremly noisy neighbours who were drunk singing La Bamba until 5:30 in the morning. Under a normal circumstance, we could have gone down to the concierge and asked to switch rooms, but in this case, because no one is at reception, we were stuck and the line of communication as to who to complain to is unclear (unless there is an emergency). Additionally, the condition of the bathroom was run down, water barely draining from the shower.
While the on-premis staff were plesant, we are now a month after our stay and still trying to get a refund. We ended up leaving after the first night instead of staying three, switching to a different hotel and asked for a refund. We'll see where it goes.
