for the price the hotel was good, we had a room which had a window situated to the main st. so it was noisy, the airconditioning didint work, but we were too tired...so no prob. to fall asleep, other friends had a window to a garden which was lovely....the rooms were tidy etc...the main prob. i had with a bold man at breakfast i came at 9:30 am no ham on the table i asked him to put on the table some and he brought me some on the plate!!!! my friend asked for a tee and he just rolled his eyes - terrible, later on my firends came and there was no bread..., so my only problem was with this man....

This place was just nasty. The rooms were tiny, with the kind of dirt that's clearly been there for a long time - stained walls, carpets, etc. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything - especially any noise in the hallway. The shower is so small that you hit your elbows on the stall doors every time you move. The free breakfast is so disgusting that the only thing I could bring myself to eat was the packaged yogurt. It's also a good 20-25 minute walk to the downtown area where all the sights are. And the first part of the walk is really frustrating because you have to cross a giant traffic circle and the only way to safely get across is to detour around it where there are crosswalks. I truly can't believe this has a 3-star rating. Doesn't deserve it.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a good room.

My wife and 2 teenage children stayed here for 1 night at the end of our 2 week trip. Located on a busy road going into and out of Florence. So, if you have a room on the street side, don't plan on sleeping. You will need to take a bus or Taxi to get into Historic Florence. Very clean. Modern bathroom. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Do not get a room on the street side of the Hotel. Very noisy

Had the mispleasure of staying in this run down Hotel. Rooms falling apart and received injuries from failing equipment and the management were mostly concerned with not upsetting their day rather than if we were OK.
Had other people also complain about the lack of maintenenance in their rooms, plugs falling out of the walls etc. Avoid staying here if you can.

The hotel was clean with a friendly staff, no complaints, location was O.K. but long walks to view attractions (1/2 hr.) Charge for internet use.

Very good for a small hotel. Off the beaten path a bit, but thats a good thing. Its quiet. Breakfast is good. Do not eat dinner. Best to eat out. Dinner menu is horrible.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room.

Spent only one night in this hotel. Room has normal size and king-size bed for good sleeping after a long day in Florence. Bathroom is ok, bath amenities and hairdryer are provided. A very good Italian continental breakfast: natural yogurt, muesli, juices, jam and toasts, perfect coffee and pastries, fresh apples and oranges. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Not close to the main central attractions, but it’s only 20 minutes walk away from the hotel. One minus – there is not free Wi-Fi. Overall, a very comfortable hotel for touristic needs.
