“Good Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We stayed at Casa Lea for 2 nights in florence. We walked there from the train station which was a terrible decision given that we had a lot of bags and it was a loooong walk. Definitely take a cab. Service was not bad, bed was not comfortable but overall the room was clean and served our needs. Wifi cut in and out. Definitely walkable to all of the main florence attractions, but it's a good 15-20 minute walk. We like walking so wasn't a problem for us, but if you don't enjoy walking, maybe stay somewhere else (public transport isn't great in that area). Overall a very good value for the price and we would stay here again (maybe with less luggage).

I paied for reservation of a room for 3 nights from Monday 6th of may. On the day of our arrival I received an email telling me that due to some issue the reservation was cancelled (at 5:00pm my flight was at 21:30). I told them I was very upset with that and that I will go directly in the hotel for reimbursment. At 20hm they received an email telling me that they had a room in another hotel for me. In the meantime I had ound another accomodation... Next day, I went to the hotel and they didn't want to reimburse me saying that they had paied for the other hotel !! (which I never asked !). I finally got the reibursment but it was really not professionnal.

Caro Signore buonasera,lei ha prenotato 3 notti e ne ha pagata soltanto una,siccome sarebbe arrivato dopo la chiusura del ceck in,su sua richiesta le abbiamo trovato una camera vicino in hotel di pari livello pagandola,l'indomani lei doveva tornare da noi per le restanti 2 notti,questo non è successo perchè lei ha provveduto da solo alloggiando in altro albergo,lei non aveva diritto al rimborso ma ho dato ordine che venisse effettuato lo stesso,lei è un maleducato ,maldicente e bugiardo.
Tanto dovevo.

Wonderful decor, easy access and distance from city center without being crowded and loud.
The bathroom was amazing, and the shower always stayed hot. Rooms were big (we had 3 in our group.)
The owner was very friendly and helpful when trying to figure out what to do and where to eat. He spoke great English.
We'd definitely go back.

Room Tip: We had a room with two twins and a king- excellent.

After arriving from a month in Morocco and a summer in the Mediterranean, we were welcomed by a charming man, Massimo, into his fantastic boutique hotel. Our room was quaint and comfortable and we enjoyed the antique furniture and ambiance that the place had. We met his mother who clearly had superior style by the way the entire inn was decorated and the close attention to detail. We stayed for almost a week and then left our luggage to travel to Napoli and returned to our things safely stored and stayed a few more days. After staying here, we decided to stay in Florence for another four months!
This is a great place to stay for a short visit or for a long while! Mille Grazie! Baci Massimo!, Angelique

The pensione is very quaint, with an old world touch. All of the rooms have an 18/19 century charm, and much of the furniture is beautifully engraved wood. It's pretty central (about a 15/20 min walk to the heart of Florence), and it's far enough away from the hustle and tourist bustle that you can get a quiet night's sleep. For the price, quality, and location, I'd say it's good option in Florence!

The guy who took care of us was super nice and helpful. The rooms are very unique with antique furniture and those awesome funny old keys. The Wi-Fi was fast. I just checked out today and want to take the whole hotel with me throughout Europe. Best hotel so far. Will definitely go back and recommend 100%!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for Double Room, but if you don't mind Twin Rooms, the room we stayed at had an awesome balc...

A very clean, well placed hotel. Easy access to main tourist attractions but away from all the noise. Pleasant hotel with a lot of character and extremely good value. Would definately go back! Have a look at the photos with all the 15th century furniture... and yes it's really like that!! Will definately go back....
