“Stingy hotel”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Hotel was very stingy with towels (felt like tablecloths); soap; food, and maps. We had 3 staying in our room; had to beg for a 3rd towel. No handtowels or washcloths provided. Soaps are very small and you only get 1 per room. No bath mat, our bathroom floor flooded every time we took a shower. I was very worried would slip and fall on tile and hit head on toilet. Breakfast was very minimal; cold cuts, bread and corn flakes. No fruit or eggs/bacon. could not close windows tight, old shutters - so very noisy due to busy street. Never again!

Biggest complaint is wi fi. You have to pay for it per day, and it's not bad when you can get it BUT it does not work in many rooms (tried with Android, iPhone and iPad). You have to stand out in a common area to get a signal. Walk down the corridor to my room and lose the signal at my door. Travelling in a group of 21 and the majority of us have the same problem. Breakfast is VERY lean pickings. If you're 6 feet or taller you WILL bump your head on the bathroom door. No shower mat on the tile floor and the bathroom is so narrow you have to sit sideways on the toilet. The beds are hard and and if you are a light sleeper you will have a hard time getting to sleep as sound bounces around and reverberates off the hard walls. I could go on but you get the idea. Rooms are clean and staff is nice but will not come back as I would like more amenities. That's the general consesus of our group.

Stayed recently for 3 nights and I can say the hotel is not worth 1 star let alone 2!! I know it was cheaper than most hotels but still not worth the money. The room was dirty not cleaned in three days we were there, towels were like dish clothes, no hot water, bed was two mattresses pushed together always coming apart. The day before we checked out we asked if we could keep the room a bit longer but they said they were to busy (which is fair enough) but we asked if we could pay extra to have a shower before we left and they said no. The day we left they kept the luggage for us in a very unsecure place under the stairs where anyone can pass, we asked to use the bathroom and when we went inside there was a shower, when we asked why we could not have paid extra to use it they were very rude and said that it was the only toilet they had and they could'nt let us use it not to keep the bathroom occupied!!!! Sorry but how long does a shower take!!!! The breakfast was also very bad, hard bread and yoghurt some chocolate spread piece of ham and cheese and very bad coffee!!!! Wont be back ever!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here pay extra and find better!!

We ended up in this hotel cause our dear hotel medici was fully booked and sent us here without having the decency to tell us beforehand

I was pleased i got in this hotel great service very helpful people. Tooms equipped with ac and tv and private bathroom. Far better than medici. Especially the breakfast. Decent cold cuts and bread. Clean rooms.

In Firenze, is not important, the classical giambologna sculptures, or Botticcelli. Nor Pontevecchio, or Pallazzo Vecchio,or Uffizzi, or the academia gallery... in all the Toscana, YOU MUST FORGET SIENA, SAN GIMIGNIANO, OR MONTEPULCIANO OR THE PALIO, OR AREZZO ... FORGET ALSO PISA AND surrounders,... you must know, ONE SPIRITUALIST GUY WORKING IN THE STAFF OF PICCADILLY HOTEL... HIS NAME IS MATEO... And is the most imprtant thing to know there... IF YOU DONT KNOW MATEO... SORRY... YOU DONT KNOW THE LIFE... This is a comment 100% serious..

Room Tip: the most quiet room is 229
