Before going any further you need to know the cost of our room for 2 nights was 153 euros. This hotel has a great location about 2 blocks from the train station, about 2 blocks from the Duomo (which is fantastic),1 block from the touring busses, about a 15 minute walk to the Birdge of Gold (Ponte Vecchio), and a short walk to the Da Vinci museum. This hotel is a great value if you are not looking for much and just need a place to sleep. The room was clean but very poorly appointed. There was a tub with a shower in it but no shower curtain and we had to borrow a hair dryer from the front desk. It did have a TV, the breakfast was terrible so we ate breakfast out both mornings and had to pay extra for wi-fi, plus schlepping our own bags up 2 flights of stairs. The staff was courteous and helpful with directions, but it is hard to overcome the first inpression of the dingy, dirty lobby, carpet and stairs unless you want a very inexpensive place to sleep.
