Floroom has 4 rooms on the top floor of a Florence townhouse (no lift). The interior is modern and because space is at a premium, everything is cleverly designed to make maximum use of it. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms are small but pefectly adequate. They are definitely only good for probably a maximum of 2-3 nights - ie if you don't need to fully unpack. But everything we needed was in the room, including free bottles of water, which was welcome in the humid weather (and considering other hotels charge upwards of €2 for a small bottle...) The bathroom was cleverly designed although I wasn't a fan of the bathroom rug - yes it looked nice, but it wasn't as clean as I would have liked...and the floor needed a really good scrub as it showed the marks, although it WAS clean. We too hit our legs on the sharp corners of the bed! But I cushioned it with one of the provided pashminas... ;)
The upstairs common area is cosy. Breakfast was made for us which I found rather unnerving as the very charming guy stood there while we ate - I felt a bit like a butler was waiting! But it was an adequate breakfast and nicely presented.
As another reviewer commented - we got back one night to find live music in the square below - it did finish by midnight - so if you go to bed early, probably best not to stay here.
But undoubtedly the best thing about Floroom is the location - PERFECT - easy to come back during the day and re-charge, drop off shopping, etc and then head out again. In a great neighbourhood with loads of interesting shops. The two friendly staff were there in the morning to make any arrangements or bookings you might need (they made our museum reservation which saved tons of time queueing), and were also there in the early evening when we returned from sightseeing to make any dinner reservations.
We ate at Quattro Leonie just opposite which had good home cooked food and fun waiters and a loud, busy vibe - locals and tourists alike - and also at nearby Nove which was a bit of a Florence "scene" - absolutely great for people watching! But some of the best pasta ever eaten...
Would definitely recommend this to couples as an ideally located alternative to some of the more chintzy hotels in Florence.
