“Awesome option!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Luciano, who works at Nuovo Italia is the uncle of Christina who runs Boston. I found the service to be friendly and warm. Great restaurant next door. They booked me a single room (with sink inside, wifi access, AC, phone & tv) for ?45/night plus 3? city tax. Comfy common area, breakfast is included and served 8 til after 10. Feeling at home here. Very clean!
Eat at ZaZas its delish and closeby.

I cannot believe I'm still here. We checked in this afternoon and I immediately should have pulled the rip cord based on appearance alone. We have just come from cinque terre where we paid the same amount and stayed in beautiful pensione's with the equivalent of 20e breakfasts', for free. Regardless, we wanted to come to Florence for two nights. I got caught up in the excitement of just getting here, feeling that I had been successful at booking so far. Dead wrong. First and foremost, there's essentially a massacre in our room as we speak. No less than 10, but perhaps closer to 15 mosquitos have been annihilated by yours truly. You might think, well maybe they dont know there's a mosquito problem. And I would say, fair enough, except there's a plug-in mosquito repellent (worthless) and approximately 5-7 other dead mosquitos on walls that were not my doing. Sick. Also, when we came back from dinner I mentioned to the front desk gal about the mosquito problem. She wasnt able to communicate so instead came back with another repellent. They absolutely knew this is an issue.

the air conditioner is really just a fan that leaks water.

the shower might as well just be in the center of the room and not have a shower curtain.

the bed ...excuse me, just had to get up and kill another mosquito. the bed is fine. who cares, its 90 degrees (F) in the room... we will be checking out first thing in the am. this is beyond disappointing and I sincerely believe this is both accurate and descriptive enough to highly highly highly encourage anyon ...(literally just killed another one just sitting on the desk in front of me ) as i was saying, i highly encourage anyone to bypass this booking.

Trust me. It's a dogsh%t property - you can find same or better deals elsewhere. Typically I go all in for location, but this was an atrocious decision with this property.
