We stayed at the Hotel Constantini for two reasons - it was affordable and it was in the heart of Florence. We knew that this hotel was not a JW Marriott or Hiton. This is a no frills hotel - you get a clean bed and a pretty clean bathroom. Only drawback was that the cleaning staff left the windows open after cleaning and we ended up swatting mosquitos all night. Location is the best thing about this hotel. Also, we were there on a Saturday night and the noise from the Duomo Piazza was extremely loud.
