“Comfortable, clean and great value for the price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We ( 2 adults) stayed at Albergo Bencidormi for 3 nights in November 2012.
The hotel is centrally located about 5 mins from the Firenze Santa Maria Novella station. This is great if you coming from different parts of Italy. It is about 2 mins from the night market and Duomo and other tourist attractions are walkable from the hotel.

The room is spacious. There is a bed for two and also a sofa bed. The shower was a bit small but still comfortable. There is a shared fully equipt pantry/kitchen outside where you can use to cook some small meals or make some hot drinks.

Roberto is really friendly and helpful. He's there from 8am to about 6pm and would, without fail, give us a warm smile and ask if everything is to our liking. After hours, he has a helper who stays in the hotel in case we need anything. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Make sure to drop them an email a couple of days before your trip to update them on your arrival tim...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Small room, clean, air conditioner, television, wi fi, and PC out of the room for guests to use. Small kitchen which will come in handy. 5-10 minutes walk from train station Firenze S.M. Novella. It will be a little bit difficult to find at first because it is actually some kind of apartment (need to find a bell which has the name of the hotel on it). Short walk from the hotel to Mercato Centrale, an indoor market selling food, fruits, etc which is great because Albergo Bencidormi does not provide breakfast. There is a shop inside called da Nerbone which serves great panini.
10 - 15 minutes walk to Duomo and many other attractions in walking distance.

Location = Central. Close to the train station and the main attractions (duomo, piazza della signoria) within walking distance.

Attitude = Mr Roberto greeted us with a smile and helped us with our luggage. He called the Uffizi Gallery for us and got us a reservation. Thanks to him we skipped the tremendous long lines! He also kept our luggage in the hotel even though we had checked out !

Room = Spacious. The bathroom is kind of basic but all in all it is functional and clean.

The Hotel = Fully equipped kitchen , Free Wi-Fi, Free Desktop Computer in the Kitchen Area

Price = Extremelly affordable for Florence.

Definetely staying there again!!!

This place is the sister property of Il Ghiro Guesthouse a couple of buildings down the road. We actually booked with Il Ghiro and were sent here. It's a pleasant surprise.

We have an ensuite twin bedroom. Shower was hot but so small that you have problem bending inside. Bed was very soft and very small - I fell off the bed twice and I an a US size 8.

But location is great, close to the station, great restaurants and cafes just downstairs from the hostel. The owner Roberto was very nice - offer great tips on local eateries and help to call taxi etc.

All in all a good bargain at Euro90 a night

I've picked out this hotel beacuse of it's location (very central) and affordable price, and it totally exceeded all my expectations. Very cute and cosy, air-conditioned rooms with free wi-fi, fully equipped kitchen with a coffee machine. The owners Paola and Roberto are super friendly and helpful, my plane arrived late and they've been waiting for me till midnight.
I'm a typical customer of big hotel chains, so generally expect that a higher price relates to higher quality. In this particular case, I wish there was an option to rate this hotel even higher than just 5 with regards to ratio of price to quality.
