Set in a perfect location amidst the city, this hotel isn't bad, but does have drawbacks and does need updates and repairs. The lobby is tired and old, the rooms are very dated. The shower had terrible signs of old orange mould and the water flows out into the central bathroom itself, the air conditioner was very loud and kept... More

We went here for a night. Came before check in time but the staff let us leave our bags. We had a good deal for the room from hotels.ca. We got a double bed with a single bed room. The room was clean and had it's own washroom. Floors are a bit creaky but clean. The main door to the... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, and the only thing it offers was its location just 2 min walk to the duomo and to the center. The hotel is very old and definitely require an elevator and the room and the toilet need renovation. I dont recommend it to anyone

The location was very close to the central cathedral (maybe a five minute walk) and to the train station (again, five minutes in the other direction). It was easy to overlook, but more than nice enough on the inside. The staff was knowledgable and friendly.

I booked this hotel because it's near the center. It's really easy to find and although it's a bit old,it's nice. There's no curtain on the bath tub,but you manage,not without having water all over the place. The owners had a dog that had full access to the hotel,even to the breakfast lounge so,sometimes you were eating and she was... More

The staff at neighboring hotel opened my wine every night. Armondo was terrific. Now the Giocondo: It is not elevated!!! You walk up a winding dirty staircase. I swear the photos all ready posted here are of the room we were in. Our room had a handicap shower. The rod was falling down, there was mold all over the seat... More

Whilst the hotel is in a great location; about 4 minutes from S.M.N train station and having the duomo about 2 minutes round the corner, This was really all that the hotel had going for it (Although the bed was nice and bed). After arriving we checked-in and were given out key and then informed there was no lift. We... More

Central location with easy access to trains, museums, shopping and food. Lovely owner/manager. May not be modern, but charming. wi-fi available in lobby-better than nothing! For the price you cannot beat this. I stayed in a $250 a night hotel in Florence at the end of my stay and it was noisy and not as convenient!

The location is definitely the best part of this hotel, it sits on the road between the station and the Duomo so you can easily get to some of the sights in a few minutes! As two young backpackers we thought the hotel was value for money.. It was clean and functional. There wasn't free wifi, nor air conditioning (only... More

We really liked this hotel! It was cheap and cheerful, but the breakfast was simple and generously sized. The hotel was perfectly located and everyone working there spoke great english and were really helpful. We'd recommend it for a budget hotel!
