They did not mention there was a common bathroom upon the reservation, rooms were not too clean, shower had two modes - hot and cold. Breakfast os in nearby cafe just croissant and coffee. Good thing is great restaurant just few stepa away with a very tasty food. Rooms equipement is old and not renovated at all.

I have to say I agree with most of the negative reviews. The place was not particularly nice. Very very noisy not just the street noise but the upstairs neighbors and other guests, Air conditioning did not work and room was not layed out well so couldn't put our bags anywhere so had to walk over them. Pay a bit... More

Reading all the other reviews I wonder what all those people expect. What you pay is what you get. Do you all sleep at home at silver mattresses? Hostel was really nice and clean, the staff was really helpful, we were allowed to check in 4 hours earlier and the owner treated us for coffee in the bar near by.... More

Every time went out, somebody came to our room and touched all our stuffs. Also after checking out, 100 eur has been charged without any explanation. Please go there if you want to get stolen by them.

Very professional and helpful check in by the owners, they even came out onto the main road to find us. Lovely quiet location 10 minutes walk from train station. Great local restuarant and bar next door..the owner of the bar Marcus was great and fantastic wine. The room was very comfortable, clean and a good size. Will be back again!!

Firstly, the reservation process was a mess. I have made reservation for our stay in August 2014 through VENERE.COM. Three days prior to arrival in September 2014, I received email from VENERE.COM that confirmed the booking. So I thought everything was going to be ok. However when we arrived at the property, not only no one was there, we had... More

So this place was HORRIBLE! DO NOT BOOK!!!! First off, it is a FAR walk through a very not safe neighborhood. The neighborhood is in the OPPOSITE direction of everything you want to see. In order to get there, you need to cross several very busy intersections, past some graffiti covered buildings and walls- NOT SAFE. Additionally, locals are not... More

It's located about 20 minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella station. We stayed in the Micelangelo room which was clean and large. Wifi was provided free of charge. The owners met us on arrival and were efficient and business like although not very helpful in terms of information on transportation around town. Breakfast is typical Italian B&B fare...prepacked pastry, coffee/tea,... More

“"Leonardo" room is very spacious, with a 3 seats sofa with pillows, a large mirror and you can access both baths. I touched the paintings hanging on the wall - in "Leonardo" paintings made of him, in "Michelangelo" specific paintings etc - and it is not a simple print on a paper, it is rather canvas.”
