“Solid room, great location and staff. Beware mosquitoes.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We just returned from a budget whirlwind tour of Italy which included my personal favorite city, Florence, starting on 4/22. We ended up spending 2 nights total at Sette Angeli. Here is our breakdown:

Service: Friendly service from the staff we encountered, one of which was the owner who was quite helpful. We did not need much during our stay so rarely needed to reach out to the staff for anything, but the WiFi did cut out once during our stay and upon resetting the router, all was good again. I also had the opportunity to watch the staff engage other non-Italian travelers on two separate occasions, which I think they handled very well and courteously. 4 stars here.

Value: For those on a budget (like my wife and I were), this was a solid value. Free WiFi was a godsend, and the hotel supplied the basic towels and soaps. Watch out for: Still a basic room though, so note there are no toothpaste or toothbrushes, no hairdryer, no ironing equipment and certainly no mini-bar . As with any city you plan on walking around, you certainly want to keep hydrated so get your water elsewhere. For EUR80 a night, we were hardpressed to find a better combo of location and price in Florence. I'd give value 4 stars.

Sleep Quality: Super comfortable low-bed with down pillows and comforter, the weather was perfect so we needed neither the A/C nor thicker blankets than what was provided, the walls were rock solid and we heard no activity from the neighboring rooms, and not much racket from the streets below. Watch out for: mosquitoes. Stupidly, we left the window open after we checked in, set down our stuff and went out to see the city. When we returned for the night, the mosquitoes started almost immediately. Upon closer examination of the room, we noted dead mosquito spots scattered throughout from previous visitors. I ended up killing 6 the first night, 5 the next. After closing the windows, we were fairly certain that no new ones came in (eg. from under the doors or other drafty areas). The hotel does not stock or provide any sort of mosquito repellent such as plugins for the room. Also, the doors are solid but do not seal off sound well. Conversation from the lobby could be heard crystal clear from our bed, and I suspect vice-versa. If not for the mosquitoes (not the hotels fault of course), this was a 4-star sleep.

Cleanliness: Pretty clean room, no complaints here. We did not walk around barefoot and don't think we'd have been comfortable doing so, but that's not to say it appeared dirty. TP was re-filled as needed, towels were clean and bed was always fresh. 4 stars.

Location: GREAT location. Longest trek we made was from the hotel to Piazzale Michelangelo, which was probably a 40 minute / 3km walk but we wandered. Getting to the other major landmarks was easy, roaming the city at night taking pictures was also simple. We did not ever feel unsafe in any of the areas we visited, including the area around the hotel. And it was a 7-9 minute walk to the main train station too. Because we didn't mind the walking, were on a budget and valued proximity to the train station, this was a 5-star location for us.

Rooms: Our room (to the right of the main entrance, left of the desk int he lobby) was the largest of all we stayed at during our trip to Rome. Very spacious feeling, good sunlight and the window actually expanded to being a full-on swing open double door to a small balcony (that we never used due to mosquitoes). You had some pseudo-modern decorations, otherwise it was simply laid out and very usable. You got one long desk, a chair, two low nightstands to match the low bed. Also had a roomy cabinet/wardrobe to hang up clothes. There was a safe for valuables, a TV with all Italian channels, and the Wi-Fi functioned very well. The bathroom was small but very clean. Water pressure was solid, and hot water got very hot and stayed hot as long as we needed. Nice. Overall, I'd give the rooms a 4.

I stayed for 4 nights at Sette Angeli Rooms from March 21-24, 2013 and I had a great time.

I thought the location of Sette Angeli Rooms was great. Situated on Via Nazionale, a little past Via Chiara, it was a short walk from the Firenze Santa Novella station. This location is near the Mercato Centrale (have breakfast at Nerbone and avoid the lines!) and pretty close to the Duomo (only about a 5-10 minute walk at most). There are also some good restaurants and gelaterias in the area, notably Cipolla Rossa, Trattoria Mario (cash-only, really local food and atmosphere), and Antica Gelateria Fiorentina (really great gelato, inexpensive).

Also located almost next door is a Tutto 99 Cent store (99 cent shop), which is a great place to get a large bottle of water for cheap to carry with you during your time out. Or some candy/snacks.

As to the hotel itself, the first thing I should point out is that as with many of these small hotels in Italy, there was no elevator. As other reviewers have noted, you can ask the staff to help with the luggage, but be aware that there are stairs (maybe 15-20 steps) to get to the lobby and another flight of stairs if your room is on the upstairs level. At check-in, the staff spoke English very well and explained the tourist taxes, payment, etc. for checking in.

Before our trip, we requested a room facing the inside to avoid street noise (as was recommended by other Tripadvisors). Our room was upstairs 1 more level from the lobby. The room itself was very nice, with a small kitchenette (additional cost to use as the staff will clean the dishes and put things away for you), a standing closet (with safe), a desk and chair, and a full/queen sized bed. The bathroom was clean and had the standard shower, sink, toilet -- nothing to complain or comment on. As we were on the inside, we had no street noise at all. There were 2 electrical outlets in the main room (by the bed) as well as 2 more (I think) in the bathroom, so power was not a problem for charging phone, ipad, etc.

Overall, big (relatively) clean room. Great location and very convenient. I would stay here again and would recommend to other travelers.

Room Tip: Inside room has no street noise, however, it may be up one additional flight of stairs.

I found a great offer for that hotel... The last day we did a tour of Tuscany and the bus left very early in the morning from the train station so that's why I chose this hotel, because it's close to S.M. Novella. It's also close to the main market and to the city center (duomo, piazzas, etc.)
The room was very clean and a nice size. It was quiet as for outside noises (traffic) but you could hear anyone on the stairs or on the hallway. To the point that someone sneezed, my boyfriend said "bless you" and the other person answered "thanks". That's not a good sign!
But other than that it was great for the price: new bathroom, clean, comfy bed (as usual, the double bed was actually two single beds put together, which is very common in Italian hotels) The staff was pretty nice too. They had publicity for tours in the hotel and they booked one or us, which was very nice of them.

This place is just like I said, perfect to see and enjoy Florence. It's 5 minutes walking from Termini station and it's really easy to find it- when you get outside of the station go right and than on the left in the first street - via Nazionale. After the OVS store, on the left side of the street, there are brown doors with the name of Sette Angeli Rooms. Francesco was great - we arrived after 10pm and he waited for us and helped us with everything we needed. Room was very big, clean and the toilet was really big- it's all new. The only thing we didn't like was the fact that our room was looking at the main street and it was a bit noisy. But after the whole day walking around we were so tired and we didn't have problems with falling a sleep :-). There is no need for using a public transport because everything is 5-20 minutes away by foot and if the weather is good you can really enjoy in sightseeing. Just across the rooms is a very nice place to eat - il Brincelo. The other place I would recomend is trattoria Za-Za at the main market square, two minutes away. At the end I can only say that we were very happy for staying here and it was a perfect place for a perfect price and perfect stay in Florence!

walking distance to central market, station etc...staff very friendly and soliciting, good price...rooms are clean, updated...overall you cant go wrong..its not luxury travel but its accomodating. The only drawbak is if you have the misfortune of geting the 3 floor because there is no elevator, but the staff helped to carry bags back and forth, my advise is when making the reservation..tell ypur preference

We spent few nights at this new B&B, which we chose because both the train station and the city centre are within walking distance. The room is neat and tidy and the bathroom is clean. All furniture is new. Unfortunately, our room gave on the main street and it was rather noisy at night. Aside from this, our stay was enjoyable. On arrival we found that none was in and it took some time to reach the staff on the phone, but this was no problem since we had a wonderful meal at Osteria Il Brincello just across the street.
