There were mixed reviews about this hotel and so we weren't sure what to expect - we need not have worried at all. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. The chap on reception was so welcoming and helpful and gave us a map and some useful tips and places of interest to visit.
The room was certainly big enough and although faced out on to the main street we weren't bothered by any noise at all. The bathroom was small and maybe a little dated but really clean with fresh towels daily and a great shower. The bed was very comfortable and again, changed every day.
The Rex is very central and all the main attractions/places of interest are within easy walking distance.
When we left the chap on reception was so helpful with advice on getting back to Pisa and the best way to visit the Leaning Tower, where to leave our bags and where to catch the train etc - I wanted to hug him!!
For the money I think you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better and hope you enjoy it as much as we did...

Room Tip: Room 104 - double room with plenty of space

Quite dreadful. We had booked in for three nights but our nerve broke after the first appalling night and we ran. The rooms are very small, bare of furniture other than the basics, and gloomy. You have to undress and get into bed one at a time as there simply isn't room for both at once. Clearly the original rooms had been divided in two with hardboard partitions so as to pack in more people, so the night was dominated by the noise of our neighbours. The only positive is its cenral location midway between the railway station and the Duomo. Breakfast was rudimentary and served by a bad tempered old lady who slouched around the room scraping her flipflops across the floor in a way that made Fawlty Towers look quite grand.

I came here for a long weekend with four friends. We each had our own room. Although we paid the same price, some rooms were better than others. MIne was one of the better ones. It faced the street, had two windows, a minibar fridge, and a bathroom with a real bathtub. It could use some updating, but it was fine for a lower priced European hotel. The bar across the street is a bit noisy but it is a city location and to be expected. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was poor. For instance, stale bread, yougurt, canned peaches and stewed prunes, juices. The coffee was pretty bad but drinkable. The lounge area was nice but they have the TV on non-stop for the sake of the staff. All in all, if you just want a very convenient and economical base to see Florence from, it is fine. It is in a great location to see the day market and Duomo.

The rooms are very small and filthy. The breakfast is very simple and without fruit. This was the worst hotel I stayed. I can not understand how someone can recommend this hotel.
