Reviewed August 17, 2012

Perfect location. It is in a nice square with the duomo peeking over the buildings. very basic rooms, air con not very efficient however rooms were spotless and staff friendly and helpful! A good value hotel. if you have realistic expectations you will not be let down. would stay again.

Situated at a large pedestrian square in the very center of Firenze, very little noise from traffic. Friendly staff, large clean and airconditioned room facing the square, fair price and breakfast OK and 35+ kinds of ice in the cafe (You'll learn to appreciate in the summer heat!). We were very satisfied except for one detail: no internet in the room and practically none in the cafe. Don't count on getting on the net. For those reviewers complaining: this is a three star hotel, try paying for the Astoria.

Room Tip: Room can face the square or a narrow road. Check when you order.

Check the room before accepting. You can get a little damp room. It is very central. The accademia is a stone throw away and so is the duomo. Spent a bit more and you can relax after a hot and tired day in Florence. Reception doesn't care about your well-being.

Stayed here four nights in June 2012. We needed a triple room which wasn't a problem. Rooms are small and you can tell they are a bit dated and old but again all we needed was shower and a somewhat descent bed to sleep in - so the placed was fine in that respect.

Someone mentioned the hotel is a little bit off the beaten path which is true although when new to Florence you don't realize it until you are there a day or two and see where the other hotels are situated relative to city center which revolves around the Duomo. It's not a big deal since you walk everywhere anyway. It's still very easy to walk to Duomo and experience the city.

Air conditioning worked and was welcome after long hot days of walking. Room was always cool to sleep.

Someone mentioned right before we left on our trip that the hotel tends to have large crowds of kids/teens staying there often who are part of various tours. Proved to be true as we always ran into packs of teenage boys right out front. There were a couple of reviews where travelers experienced loud kids running and making noise all night because of this. Was worried that might happen to us, however we never experienced any noise problems, but I would be cautious. We may have gotten lucky.

Descent hotel, nothing fancy by any means but will work for a place to lay your head and get a shower.

This hotel was clean and comfortable, and well priced. We loved the location on the piazza away from the heavy tourist traffic. The breakfast was good, and we were happy to avail ourselves of the gelateria downstairs. The staff was helpful and courteous. Though not luxurious, in all else it was all I would hope for in a hotel.

My husband and I recently returned from this hotel. The best advice I can tell you is NEVER stay here. The first night the air conditioning did not work nor did the shower. We could not be switched to another room until the second night where the air didn't work much better and the ceiling of the shower was leaking. The hotel is dingy, old and not kept up. The desk staff is indifferent and could care less about anything. We had breakfast included but it didn't matter because it was so bad that we couldn't eat it anyway. Like I said...don't stay here!

The hotel is well-located near the Florence Duomo and local restaurants. However, large tour buses are not allowed within about 3 long blocks of the hotel due to local access laws. Hence, big-time problems with baggage and disabled travelers.
The rooms are small but adequate; cleanliness is apparent; the airco, when working, is not adequate; the buffet bkfsts are good; the desk clerks are helpful.
The "best gelato" in Florence, downstairs from the hotel, is owned by the hotel and is no different from any other gelato establishment in town.

Room Tip: Try for a low floor - the only elevator for the entire hotel is small. Try the Chinese restaurant o...
