Reviewed May 18, 2010

My husband and I stayed at this inn for 3 days in Florence during our trip through western Europe. If you are looking for a budget hotel, look no further. This hotel is literally 5 minutes from all of Florence's attractions. The rooms are large, spacious and clean with private bathrooms. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel offers free internet. We paid only 60 euros a night and had a fantastic experience. Sure, there is no room service or fitness center, but are these amenities really important when you have a city like Florence to explore?! I highly recommend this place!

As Americans studying in Wales, we decided to spend 2 weeks of our spring break traveling throughout Italy. We arrived in Florence, tired and hungry. Our original hotel reservation was lost, but we ended up finding the Pensione Margaret. I am so glad that we stayed here, because the service was amazing. Even though we arrived late, the front desk worker made sure we were pleased and made a second bed for myself. Thanks so much!

Absolutely wonderful!!!:)
My husband and I stayed in this lovely hotel in September 2009 and found it totally delightful!
The location is perfect and very easy to find - virtually minutes away from the SMN station - but in a very quiet and beautiful street, very close to all you want to see in Florence!
The room we stayed in was very clean, comfortable and really elegantly decorated!
The whole place feels like it is handled with such a special care of the owners:)
The stuff were totally delightful and very very helpful!
I would recommend this charming and warm hotel to all the travelers who want to make the best out of their Italian experience! :)

"I stayed at Hotel Margaret in Florence for 2 nights in August 2009. My
daughter and I were travelling with back packs and we walked from the train
station to the hotel easily. It was a short walk. The location is perfect
for sightseeing. The price was right E45 per night for a double with a
shower. The family members who run the hotel were very accommodating and
friendly. On the negative side no breakfast was included, there is no air
conditioning and at the time of our visit there was a problem with the free
WYFY but this is usually available. The hotel is clean, and across the road
from the hotel there are at least two very inexpensive places to eat which
serve good food. I would recommend this place to persons who are looking for
a safe, economical and clean place to stay."
