“Clean, strategic, and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Went there with my mother for a 2 day trip. Hotel is a 15 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella station, not too difficult to reach except that hotel is actually an apartment in the second floor of a building converted into a bed and breakfast. This means you have to pay attention to building numbers an ring the bell, but it also means you have a very homely feeling, having a living room, kitchen to yourself (shared, but did not see anyone). Our room had its private bathroom, and everything was clean and tidy. Disadvantages: 1-Could not get wi-fi to work and as we were received by an asian-looking fellow who left right after handing over the keys, there was no-one to really ask for additional help. 2-Bed was a bit hard and only a thin bed cover is provided and so if it is a bit cold, you have a problem. We had to sleep with our jackets to stay warm. 3- No shampoo is provided and only a shower gel, so bring your own things if you want to have a decent shower. Water pressure is excellent and hot water is readily available. Overall, it was a very positive experience, I would go there again.

Room Tip: All three rooms were great. One has its private bathroom and the other two share a bathroom. Do not...

Our room was huge, clean, and visually pleasing. Elvis (his real name - his father was a big Elvis fan) checked us in gave us a rundown on all the attractions, and even noted all the details on a city map. A great value if you're looking for a nice place to stay that is easy on your wallet.

it is true, it fells like home. It is an appartment thansformed in an hotel. You have access to the living room, the tv and the kitchen (only for the refrigerator and the coffee.) The oven doesnt work because it is an old appartment transformed in an hotel but the lady owner was so nice, she ordered a pizza for us since we were confused with the kitchen functionning or not. It is 10-15 min walk to the center of the city. close to the train station, it doesnt seem safe outside but honestly it is. it is like renting a house for vacation with an owner so nice you want to stay there forever.

be careful to red the signs on the doors because the hotel is hard to find.
