“Great Extended Stay”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

I had to live in Florence for 7 weeks while I studied in Prato. The owners (Lara & Lorenzo) were very professional and friendly to be around. Most rooms have their own private balcony and there is one large balcony from the common area that leads to a view of the Tuscan mountains. There are bus stops within a minute's walk and you can even walk to the city centre if you want to (around 20 mins walk). The breakfast was always fresh and the espresso AND cappucino were great. You have a laundromat and all amenities around the area plus wireless internet (free with the room). You have your own key and max privacy. Good value and great stay.

Whats good:
- cheap
- close to city center
- friendly staff. they are quite sweet

Whats bad:
- the bed is a spring bed and very small... could barely sleep and kept getting disturbed when my husband turned/ moved. he had to bear the same
- we booked a room with a private bath. and paid for it! but they made us share. I hate it if other people use my bathroom... had to live with it
- breakfast felt like it was the lowest end of the cheapest range. juice was more preservative, less fruit. bread was stale.. i only had tea
