Booked for 3 nights as father daughter time and to visit her wedding venue in Bucine. On arrival - seemed ok. Room - small but functional 1st night - room was so hot - couldn’t have windows open as people and traffic noise - not too much sleep - air con not working. Still bed bugs seemed to like it there!! Asking to change rooms was difficult, but on showing the bite marks - seemed to change. Next room still at front of hotel - air con down from 25 in last room to 21 can’t get it any lower. If you get room 115 - don’t plan on being able to sit on loo as hairdryer in the way 😂 There is an emergency pull cord in the shower - sorry - a mold infested piece of string, or a legionnaires tree? If you want toast for breakfast - there’s a wait 28 cover restaurant and only a 2 slice shop bought toaster 🥴 Last night tonight, thank goodness. Also the Mayor of Florence has decided that €4.50 must be paid on departure - per night as a local tax - only payable in cash 💴 😂😂😂 Florence is a beautiful city - but this is not a hotel to stay in! Should have known as it was a British Airways holiday booking, as treated my daughter to Club Europe flights - see review on that experience!!!!

We loved our stay in this hotel. The location was convenient, the staff was helpful, the room was clean, and the service adequate. We were able to get a wonderful exposure to the culture of this Tel Aviv neighborhood by spending time walking around this vicinity of the hotel.We would definitely choose to stay there again.

This is an older small hotel. It is cheap but the staff are helpful and friendly. A good 10-15mins walk to main attractions but an easy walk. Near the train station, about 10mins. Not worth a taxi if your physically well, but it can be tricky to find as the internet map has it marked wrong. Head for the American cafe and ya just 10meters up from there!

We stayed for 3 nights in a Quadruple room. The room was fairly dimly lit but spacious. The beds were fine but the aircon didn't feel like aircon and was more like cold air. There was a large cupboard in the room but not loads of storage space. Luckily we weren't staying that long. The breakfast was good and a wide variety of cereals and ham and cheese and bread etc. There wasn't much seating room so it must get packed when they are fully booked. The location was good walking distance from Florence Train station and close to the main sights. There are also supermarkets nearby which is nice. Would return again purely for the location and price.

The positives of this hotel are: •Comfortable bed with good linen •Nice towels •Very quiet and dark (our window opened to the pipes and conduit of the next building over, less than a meter away). •There were two nice staff who were friendly and helpful. The others seemed a bit blasé (understandably, I guess!) •Consistent aircon which wasn’t too loud or cold. •Close to Mercato Centrale, which was fabulous for food and drinks and people watching. On the downside: •In a seedy area, drunks passed out near hotel entrance, dodgy types all around. •Some terrible cafes and restaurants in close proximity. •Very disappointing breakfast selection with possibly the worst coffee I’ve ever tasted. We didn’t bother eating here after the first morning. •Whilst comfortable, the bed was two single beds side by side, which slipped easily across the floor. •Dirty and dated, shower pressure and temp was good but dingy and dark, with gross shower curtain. •Extremely loud buzzing for entry into the room - think prison cell style. We are pretty positive people and like to make the most of our short time together, so we definitely made light of the situation and had a lot of good laughs 😂 A bit of comedic imagination can do wonders 😂 We would definitely not stay here again, though.
