    The staff were amazing! They were kind and very helpful. There was no breakfast service, but it has a kitchen with plates, cups, coffee machine, coffee, sugar, etc., so we can prepare our breakfast or a meal in the afternoon. It also offers a computer with internet (which is good you don't have a smartphone or need it for a specific task).

    loved il ghiro, location close to both train station and lots of the sights. Great to have kitchen, wireless and washing machine.The owners are extremely nice. Lovely room with nice view and able to get to know other guests as place is small and intimate with common area.
    Would definitely stay there again.

    Once arrived, we were warmly greeted by a very kind host. We were actually asked to move to their new place, named Bencidorm. The latter was absolutely new. With very nice and new furniture and equipment and a TV set. A rather spacious room and a large bathroom. You have a free WiFi in the whole place, a computer with internet for public use, a kitchen with electric kettle and a coffe machine. The location is extremely covenient if you travel by train (as we did). It's in some 5 - 7 min. walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station and 12 - 15 min. walk to Duomo.
    In general, the atmosphere was very nice and it seemed as if we were at our friends'.
    Highly recommended.

    Clean, quiet small guest house with a very friendly atmosphere in the heart of Firenze. We love Francesco - the owner, who is extremally nice and helpfull. We spent there 15 days, travelling around Tuscany. Parking 3 min. very good price thanks to Francesco. Don't worry about third floor, is quite healthy:)

    We were there in September 2011

    Pros-
    -nearby train station
    -its in the centre of Florence-walking distance to Mercato Centrale & Duomo
    -free wifi and computer in the hall
    -has a small kitchenette to do simple cooking
    -has washing machine
    -public bathroom is kept clean
    -Owner Frencesca is a great host-gave alot of valuable advice..


    Cons:
    -its located on the third floor. We had trouble bringing our luggages up, luckily Francesca is there to help us out. It will be great though for backpackers.
    -there is no lighting in the stairways heading up to hostel. Kinda feel creepy and eery.

    Thanks for the kind review. Just to inform other travellers :
    - We do have lighting in the stairway . We are sorry you didn't find the switch.
