The positive is that the staff was professional, friendly, and helpful. A true credit to the hotel. Booked hotel due to catching early flight back to United States the next day and it is very close to the airport. The rooms are basic but clean, definitely not luxurious. If you are looking for one night stay to catch an early...

Nice and clean hotel. Near bus station to the center (1,2) eur. Clean rooms with new furniture and new bathroom. Good breakfast and very good coffee. The stuff was very kind and helpful. If we travel again to Florence I would always pick this hotel.

We chose this hotel purely as we got a deal on a room for €66 (€130 usually another guest informed us) and as it was 5 minutes drive from the hotel. We arrived late by city bus after a day exploring Florence and found the reception desk staff to be very well informed and helpful. The room was clean but...

Let me start with the positive -- the staff were all extremely helpful, warm and easy to work with. They were cooperative and efficient in getting taxis, printing boarding passes and offering sight suggestions. Also, the hotel is very close to the Florence airport and a short ride to downtown Florence. But the rooms were quite small and the shower...

As I said the hotel is great, the room is clean and spacious, the bathroom too. The balcony has a great view. The only thing I really didn't like was the location. I'm 19, I traveled alone and I didn't feel very safe coming back in the evening (by evening I mean 7:30/8 pm). It's clearly a poor neighbourhood and...

Situated so close to the airport, you might wonder about how good a hotel can be - but convenience is only the beginning of the story here. The people in charge are helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. The place is spotless. The bar is always open! And the rates - you can't beat them. We take the bus into the city...

Great location close to the airport (E12-18 for a taxi, E10 for a shuttle per couple), and a 15-30 minute bus ride to downtown (buy tickets at the desk). New, clean, comfortable rooms; friendly, helpful staff who speak English; breakfast available (looked good). And the price is really right. We were very happy with this place.

Knew it wasn't going to be the best, but still a bit disappointed. Room and bathroom were outdated, tired and almost seemed dirty. There was a tray of potpourri (at least I think that's what it was) with a cigarette butt in it. Not a lot of soundproofing and no bolt for the door, which made me jumpy all night....

Fantastic little find on booking.com Originally intended to be here 2 nights, but have extended to a third night so we can see more of Florence. Rooms are large and modern with great showers. Balcony ( mind this as the parapet is a bit low!) overlooking in our case towards the nearby airport. Nice gift of a couple of boxes...

We just randomly picked this hotel. It provided hotel level room with bed & breakfast price. Free parking and free wifi. Stuffs were nice and gave us map and bus information to the city. We should just stay in this Florence hotel instead of lived in Pisa for couple days. Recommend to people.
