“Depressing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2008

Found this on the HostelWorld website. Stayed two nights at 32.50 euro per person per night in a double room.

Check-in is actually in another hotel in the neighborhood that was difficult to find. The receptionist was nice enough but speaks little English. Also, the check-in hotel is on the 4th or 5th floor of a building with no-elevator, so it was quite an exercise to get up there.

The hotel itself is located in the second floor of an apartment building with elevator. We had to ring several doorbell before someone buzzed us in. The unit we stayed in has three rooms, a common living room and kitchen (with fridge). Bathroom is shared.

Our room has a high ceiling and has no decoration. The window opens out into a small area surrounded by neighboring building and a favorite hang-out for pigeons. The heater was near the window and never strong enough to warm up the room.

The shared bathroom is not dirty, though a bit old. The water drains very slowly in the shower. Also, the water heater and room heater were turned off the first night we were there. It was again the next day but someone else complained and they came to turn it back on again.

Breakfast not included.

I've stayed at better places at comparable rates in Florence, so we'd recommend that you look harder elsewhere.

The Prestipino is in an ideal location for visiting Florence, something that only dawned on us after a few days of walking in every direction to find basics such as breakfast and booze! Its 5 minutes from the train station one way and the river the next, the further away you walk from the Gucci and Prada shops, the cheaper the shops are for food and drinks. The room we stayed in was like a mini apatment, much bigger than expected, right next to the main exit and across from two nice sized bathrooms. Unless we bumped into someone in the corridor you would have thought that you had the floor to yourself, that is until the cleaner arrives in the morning and has an insanely loud conversation at 9am (could get annoying). Within 2 minutes walk there is a great restaurant on the corner of the road, an internet cafe, a mini market and a bar/restaurant or two. You do have to go up a few stairs to get to your room, but in Italy that is pretty much the norm. Its not the place for people who want to socialise but it was nice, clean, fabulously air-conditioned and we even had a shower and sink in our room if we were feeling to lazy to walk the 2m to the bathroom.

  • Liked — price and location
  • Disliked — The stairs!
  • Tips/Secrets — always walk 5 minutes in every direction of your accomodation on the first day to find the bargains.
  • Stayed August 2006, traveled with friends
