I was staying 2 nights in Leonardo house and it was really nice. The owner is so helpful. Hostel is in the center of historic Florence so it is easy to get to every place and galleries. It is clean, there is free towels and wi fi internet. It is close to bus and train station, so what else you need :)...I recommend this hotel to everyone.

This hostel is wonderful - Leonardo himself is such a gracious man and makes you feel very welcome. The price is great - quite a bargain. The room (private double) was immaculate and so was the shared bathroom. The bed was more comfortable than our bed at home! We were there in a hot season of July, but the room stayed nice and cool and had a fan. We only had to share one large bathroom with two other people. It is very conveniently located, 5 minute walk from SMN train station. Also they are very attentive at check-in, providing you with a city map and pointing out good places to get a beer or a cup of coffee. They are also very generous with luggage storage - we checked out early in the morning and left our bags there until around 4pm.

If you want to stay in a tourist house that has friendly staff and a good location then this is the place for you! You will be hard pressed to find better value for money given all of the below:

My friend and I stayed here for three days and experienced the following through aid of the staff at the hostel.
- Recommendations for cheap, hearty meals
- Travel experiences and tour deals within Florence
- Free use of internet (1 computer + wi-fi available)
- Clean and safe premises
- They went above and beyond, trying to find us an english language cinema so we could see a movie on the evening we didn't want a big night out!

We felt really comfortable and helpful and we felt the staff had a lot of insider/local knowledge on the area, from tourist hot spots to local eateries and entertainment hangouts if you want to immerse yourself deep within Italian culture.

Highly recommend to fellow travellers for an affordable Florence stay

Leonardo House is a Hidden Gem!! Great location right near the main train station, and close to many of the landmarks around Florence! We didnt have to catch public transport once, you are able to walk everywhere from the Hostel!

Leonardo himself is a great host and made myself and my friend feel right at home and very comfortable! He gave us exceptional service ! great tips on many of the local eateries, nightlife and tours!

I would definitely recommend Leonardo house to travelers between the age of 20 and 30, who are not looking to spend much on accommodation, but still feel safe & enjoy the location of their hotel. As 2 young girls travelling through EUrope, we have stayed in many dodgey hostels and felt a bit uneasy, but this place was a breath of fresh air! Definitely reccommend to anyone visiting Florence!!!

Leonardo House had a fantastic location, and an even better host. Leonardo is incredibly kind, accommodating, friendly, and helpful to his guests. The rooms were clean, plain, and exactly what a traveler needs to be comfortable. The cost was rather inexpensive and the location was a 3 minute walk from the Dome. Upon our arrival, Leonardo opened a map and circled many amazing sights that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. I felt comfortable, safe, and would definitely go back!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

Leonardo was very nice but was not helpful, he gave us a key and that is it. Our room was disgusting - squished bugs all over the walls and floors. We had to listen to music all night because the buzzing of the bugs was so loud it kept us awake. A single dull light bulb for the entire room. The bathroom was not cleaned once for the entire 5 days that we were there, even though Leonardo came to clean another bathroom after someone had checked out. We resorted to breaking into an empty room to use an en suite bathroom rather than the revolting shared bathroom. The only saving grace of the hotel was that we could walk anywhere we wanted, so we could leave early in the morning and not return until we were so exhausted we could fall asleep in the inhumanconditions.
