“More Than Adequate”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

This was a delightful hotel but remember - it is a budget hotel. Our room was clean and the linens were crisp and comfortable. The bathrooms were odd but that comes with an old hotel. We reserved 4 rooms as we traveled in large group. All were completely different but all provided a good night's sleep. The location was fabulous and a short walk from the train station. Trattoria Da Giorgio is a fabulous restaurant a few step away from the hotel. We stopped at the Joshua Tree on the way back to our hotel for a nightcap. It was one of the most memorable evenings of our trip! We never saw anyone at the front desk but that wasn't a problem for us. It was a perfect fit for our large group.

Room Tip: A corner room would be preferable.

Ok don't be fooled by the pictures, unless there are more than the three rooms I saw. The good is: It is in a great location, there are three doors to lock so once inside you feel safe, and the lady who runs the desk is nice. However, the bedspread is super dirty and the window wouldn't latch so if it is cold out prepare to freeze at night. There is a loud club and noise at nighttime. The bathroom shower is touching the toilet and sink and the fan in the bathroom makes a horrible noise whenever the light is on. I would not stay here again but I usually only stay in three star hotels and up. It is like a motel 6. But they are connected to another hotel nearby that is worth paying the little more for, from the lobby, and because they have staff all night. Sorry I didn't take pictures but unless you want a one and half to two star place I'd pay the extra fifty for a different one.

Room Tip: You can choose between a communal bathroom or one in the room. Don't know how you pick which roo...

This hotel is a good hotel in a center of Florence City . You can walk to the railway station about 10 minutes and go to the center around 20 til 30 minutes . With bus line number 14 you can see a panorama view of Florence i recommend every one go and see this panorama view .

The room is very small and the shower is literally besides your bed, but the price is great, the service is really very nice and everything is very clean.

O quarto é bem pequeno e o chuveiro é literalmente do lado da sua cama, mas o preço é ótimo, a atendente é sensacional, muito simpática e prestativa. Tudo estava muito limpo.
Com certeza recomendo, mas saiba que é simples.

This hotel literally located few blocks from train station, 3 minutes walking. The location is quite, nice, minutes from old city. It is 5-10 minutes from Duoma, and 10-15 minutes walking from galleria Uffizi. We came in at 10 pm and had no problem checking in.
Hotel located on the 3rd floor of 3 floor building (there is elevator). There is different hotel on each floor. Hotel and room was clean, very basic. They have mini fridge in the room. Staff is ok, speaks English. They offer breakfast which was good, but view from breakfast room is awesome.

I found this hotel is convenient and very good value for money.

5-8 minutes walk from the train station. The price is low, which is good, just don't expect too much from the room size as it is fairly small. The bathroom was about the same size as the bedroom. The reception closes at 4:00PM and you have to go to their sister property to check in after that, but I found that was good because the lobby is free for you to hang out in an go online.

The best thing about the hotel was the receptionist . Extremely friendly with a good sense of humor , she made us feel at home immediately. The location is good , near the railway station and the central Market and the Duomo .Room size is Ok and clean. No breakfast is served. But you can walk downstairs to a nearby cafe. It is a little noisy outside but we were not really disturbed. The biggest minus point is the shower .Its tiny and the water is a trickle . But remember the hotels rates are low and I guess you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Take a room away from the main road
