Very well positioned within easy walking distance from the station. It's not easy to find (we had pre-warning of this from reading a review on TripAdvisor) so we made sure we checked the location on Google Maps etc. Once inside it's clean and well furnished and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It was excellent value for money and we can recommend it if you are budget conscious. The lift is very small and can take 2 people or 1 person + luggage but it works well and so does the free WiFi.

We booked this hotel very last minute at an excellent price, and I can only say that it surpassed our expectations. The room (6) was quite small, but good enough for two people staying one night, had a TV etc. Very clean. Bathroom was spacious, but I have to say that the shower was slightly dirty.

Breakfast was great, came at 9am as requested in our rooms, brought by a very pleasant gentleman, who gave us very helpful information later on at the reception desk about buses.

They even kept our bags for us while we went around the City the next day.

Great location. All I would say is that it should be better signposted.

Many thanks,

Very basic budget hotel but good location. 10 min walk from train station with luggage. 10 min walk to the Dome.Try to ask for a quiet room. We were given a room facing front street with pub before on the 1st day (which they told us the view is good). Could still hear people talking at 3pm. Switched to room at the back on 3rd night. Bigger and quieter with nice neighorhood rooftop view. Could see cats on the roof. The owner/staff were very friendly. They brought our breakfast to our room every morning and helped us to book local tour with My Tour and told us where the meeting point was.

Room Tip: Ask for a quite room.

Thanks for the kind words, we are always happy to receive compliments.
I am very sorry for the noise at night, many times we tried to talk to the managers of the pub but they will not listen to anyone.
We are organizing a committee to put an end to that place so noisy.
Anyway I'm glad that everything was to your liking.
Hoping to see you soon, I wish you all the best.

Very clean and nice hotel in the centre of Florence. When you come out of the train station there is a McDonald's across the road and it is round the corner from this and about 300-400meters down the road. Free WiFi, English speaking staff and there's a lift. Very good value for money for the location. Breakfast is the only let down really. Served in the room as there is no dining area and its just a croissant and a bread roll with tea or coffee. Sufficient but nothing spectacular. Would recommend this hotel. Also there are a few nice restaurants within walking distance.

stayed there with my wife in november (but weather was still great) at first had problems to find it (it is located opposite a pub "birrificio", right across the street inside of a building next to da migliana restaurant, so you have to look for a name on the door bell) but when you get there you cannot miss it... the hotel is on third floor and we were greeted by dino at the reception... had a room #5 so no distractions from the street, own personal bathroom, free wifi and a breakfast to the room every morning... room was decent size even thou bit shabby (in the need of fresh painting)... the best thing that the hotel is just minutes away from the historic centre! the walls are bit thin but it didnt disturb us that much to spoil our stay!

This is a good budget hotel. Suitable for a night or two, but look for something a little more comfortable if staying longer in Florence

PROS:
- clean rooms and bathrooms
- friendly staff, helpful with directions and provided a great map
- fast wifi
- nice breakfast delivered to room (croissants, coffee, OJ)
- location is close to train station and 10 minute walk to main sights. Supermarket and markets also nearby. That said, Florence is a very small city and most accomm is walking distance to everything.

CONS:
- our room had a bit of a funny sewerage-type smell occasionally
- our room was noisy and it was difficult to get a good sleep. Unfortunately, we were located in the main hallway near reception; tv/radio on until late in the night, and then quite a bit of early morning noise with people checking out, phone ringing, and conversations from guests and staff. Request a room away from reception if you want to stay here!
- feels more like a hostel rather than hotel
