Hotel Fani
Ranked #586 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Your arrival at the hotel fani will be somewhat alarming as you shuffle along the seedy little street where it is situated and your first impressions when you finally find the hotel are not much better. The rooms are ample sized but the walls are paper thin and on our first day i had to put up with loud flea ridden backpackers shouting at 3am out in the street. Thankfully the manager moved me and my girlfriend to a quieter room but the standard was much the same. The bathroom is oddly designed so that when you have a shower it is virtually impossible not to soak the entire place. At the end of the day you get what you pay for and with most of your day being taken up by walking through the beautiful city of florence you wont have to spend any more time in this hotel than you have to. Average at best but i wouldnt come here expecting a romantic break rather more as a backpacker type stopover.

Room Tip: stay away from the roadside rooms, far too noisy

Hotel not on the nicest street but within walking distance to everything. Bathroom weird. When you shut shower curtain you are in there with the toilet. No lip on shower so the whole bathroom floods. A/C was cold. Felt safe as it was just myself and my daughter. Beds very uncomfortable.
