Tourist House Liberty is very much a 1 star affair, which is fine, as long as you realise that you are only going to get the very basics. It is well located but Florence is hardly a large town to navigate so I suspect most available accommodation would fall into this category.
The staff member who attended us when we checked in was friendly enough and made sure to let us know that the internet was only available in the lobby. Our room was dated but it was reasonably clean save for the wall at the head of the bed which had grease marks (presumably from people's hair) across it.
The bed was small (more of a king single than a double) and creaked at the slightest movement. Threadbare towels were provided for the tiny private bathroom - which was a source of endless amusement as we both had to literally straddle over the toilet to reach the shower.
If all this seems a little different from the image you imagined when looking at the professional photos then join the club. The uploaded traveller's photos give a far better indication of the place - which is a basic 1 star hotel.
My biggest issue with my stay (aside from falling off the bed whenever my partner moved) was the noise. The corridor acted as an echo chamber for every creaking door and footstep and I found myself simply not getting any sleep. As the staff leave in the evening I had no way of moving rooms or any other recourse.
Luckily, the Flowers Cafe nearby serves the best coffee I have had in Italy at a very reasonable price.
Overall I would not stay there again unless I literally had no other option.
