This is a charming little hotel located on the fourth floor of an old building right in the middle of one of the main streets in old town Florence. Just like everyone mentioned before, the location is perfect as you can walk everywhere from here. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful. The staff speaks both English and Spanish and are very accommodating, even when most of them are young. They have free Wi-Fi, which is spot on strong and reliable. Our room was a triple and had a double bed and a twin bed, both beds were firm and nice. The room, although small, was very clean and cozy. I read to request a room away from the street and we did but they gave us a room in the middle of the hotel. Big mistake! There's a lot of traffic at night from guests coming in and out and because most people are no considerate, we had a hard time sleeping at night. We stayed there only two nights and I cannot say I slept well there. If you're reserving a room, make sure you ask something all the way to the back of the hotel near the cafeteria. I would think those are a little quieter.
Another problem are the towels and the safe. Our safe did not work and the towels seem to be paper towels. I'm not talking about the hand towels but actually the big body towels, they also have a weird smell to it. I would recommend you to bring your own. I hope those little negative details don't deter you from staying in this hotel, it was overall, a good stay.
