Very good location, well equipped for a budget place, tv, wifi, shower in room. Paper thin walls and slamming "front" door was the only minus.
Not cheap, but good price for incredibly expensive Florence.

Great location. In the middle between train station and Duomo. 3rd floor, no elevator but forget it. Kindly staff, clean bathroom.

Location: Great. Very central, walking distance to SMN.

Access: 78 winding steps to get to the reception, skip this place if you have luggage.

Comfort: Very poor. 2 small beds pushed together and sold as a double, I always subtract 2 for that stunt. Beds also awful, felt like a sheet of MDF on a few old springs. I woke up each morning feeling worse than I did before bed.

Cleanliness: Room was sold as having a private external bathroom, but no hint of this on arrival. Shared toilet rarely had TP and was always dirty. I don't like to have to trek down the corridor and clean large amounts of dried yellow urine off the seat before I can use the toilet.

Safety: Power supply for air con unit is routed through the bottom of the shower cubicle. Risk of someone getting fried one day. Probably never inspected.

This hotel is perfectly located! Right between the Duomo and the train station. It's on the 3rd or 4th floor- we were fine walking up the stairs but some people may struggle. The rooms were clean, and the lady that worked there was quite friendly. The biggest drawback would be the bathroom. There's only 1 toilet for the whole hotel, so essentially you had to wait fairly often to go the the toilet, slightly annoying, particularly in the middle of the night. A lot of rooms don't have showers, which means they use the shower in the same room as the toilet. Things get wet.
The rooms are also partial to noise made in the hotel (doors opening and closing etc). But, it's quite cheap for Florence and its really very good value for money. The location is unbeatable. Would stay again!
