“charming pensione with some real life italy!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

if you want an experience that allows you a little interaction with a family where you can smell the pasta cooking and enjoy their little altar and hear the pots clanging, this is for you. we loved our stay. it's a long stair climb, but great to work off all that good food you ate! we loved being in a *real* place. you get your key, you leave your key. our room was a nice size, good bed and a desk and spare bed and internet. you feel like you're in real italy at a place like this. short walk to the indoor market, cafe nearby. just nice & homey and a great price. we'd walk all over florence for hours then collapse at night. no frills, but just right for the money and great location walking to and from the train station and anywhere you want to go in florence.

The location of this hotel is perfect, just a 5 minute walk from the cathedral and lorenzo market or the train station. The property itself is on the 3rd floor of an old building and everything inside looked very old. The granny that runs the place didn't speak much english and didn't even give us towels. She also spoke on the phone the whole night and we could hear her chatting loudly. The room was okay, very basic and its just a bed to sleep on. Only go here if you don't care to sleep in a crappy place, we didn't care and had a good time overall.
