I stayed 3 nights at Black 5 in August. The stay was pleasant, especially with their nice AC in the summer days. Check-in time is kind of limiting, so you have to plan your schedule around it. The room I had has a good size and has a mini fridge and a safe. The bathroom is nicely furnished for European standard. The room was cleaned everyday nicely. Breakfast is nice. It has standard choice of bread and cheese and ham. But the cleaning lady would make you a hot pancake and fresh coffee when you show up for breakfast. Breakfast is served on the top floor. Step outside to get a good view of the red roofs of Florence.
I have to mention the great help I got from the cleaning lady. I wish I had gotten her name. She does not speak much English but she is good at understanding and accommodating your needs. On the day I left I had 30 minutes to catch my train. She called a taxi for me. I hurried into the cab. 6 minutes later I got a call from my friend who lives in Florence, telling me that I forgot my passport in the safe in my room. Turned out the cleaning lady checked the safe as soon as I left, saw the passport and ran downstairs to find my friend in the attempt to contact me. I ended up taxi back the Black 5, picked up the passport, rushed back to the train station and boarded the train as the final boarding whistle blew. To me this is a sign of experience of the staff and they are willing to spend extra effort to help their guests. Very impressed!
Will stay here again if I go to Florence in the future.
