“Excellent deal for budget traveling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

As a traveling student, I can't really afford to stay at full on hotels, so I'm used to staying in hostels with little to no amenities. I was expecting much worse from this place considering the price, so that's why my review is so positive. It's very much like a guesthouse with just a few rooms and no overnight reception, and the place is upstairs in the building. Walking in, it's small and not fancy. My room though, #4, was very very clean and looked like any hotel I've stayed at with my parents. Wifi was super fast, comfy clean bed, large room with closet and free towels.

My only complaints are a slightly dirty bathroom (this was more the fault of the other people who shared the bathroom, leaving hairballs everywhere) and the street noise was very audible. If you're a budget traveler though, this is an excellent deal. I would stay here again. Especially considering how close it is to Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, etc.

Stayed at the bronze horse in dec 2013. First thing to note, it is not a hotel- or even close .

There is 1 shared bathroom for 4 rooms with some rooms having 4 people in them.

Check in is at a pre arranged time.. Other customers seem to be left waiting for hours to check in.

The shared bathroom shower is in FULL view of everyone staying there courtesy of only a glass door separating the common area and the shower cubicle .

During my stay here the sheets were not changed nor were fresh towels provided. The bathroom is not cleaned every day.

Also the room looking into the courtyard does not have proper curtains meaning residents in adjacent buildings have full view of the room..

If you like television this is not the place for you as there are none.

Not is there a common area as stated in the booking websites.

If you like tea or coffee this is not the place for you either as there is no tea facilities.

If you like to drink tap water this isn't the place for you either as you have to fill your water bottles ( byo) up at the tap in the shared bathroom.

On the plus side the location is good .

I booked this based on photos and proximity to the Ponte Vecchio bridge. It ws a night mare. There was no heat for two days and we had to sleep with our coats and hats on. They had no blankets either and our call to expedia to have the owner provide heat sent two ladies who did not know anything about fixing heat. All night long there was noise of bar revelers in the streets because it is in the Sante Croce party area. There was a business that played the same italian song over and over until about 3 pm when they closed for the evening. The supply closet had a hole punched in probably by a disgrunted client. The sheets were clean and the shared bathroom in disrepair with lights missing and holes in the wall. The bathroom was clean but just not in good condition. I needed a warm place and quiet nights sleep. You won't get it here.

Room Tip: Dont' stay here unless you have a sleeping bag to stay warm and don't mind being awake all n...
