Stayed here for one night as part of a Topdeck tour. Room appeared very dirty and old. Çlean towels had been placed on the toilet seat instead of on towel rail. New towels were provided. Internet only available in very small lobby. 4 euro for 1 hour. Would not recommend

My wife and I arrived in Florence with no accommodation booked. The second hotel was ……. And a very pleasant receptionist gave us a choice of two rooms. We settled in nicely, went to reception and asked if they could recommend a restaurant. She told us to go to The Taverna, a five minute walk away, best advice we had been given. A good nights sleep, the hotel let us leave the car there for the day which was a bonus. Breakfast was okay, basic, some slices of cheese and meat would have been welcome. All in all very nice, cheap and cheerful.

Our room smelt so horrible, at first we thought maybe it's been closed for a while so my husband and I opened the windows and doors to air it out. After going out and returning the smell was even worse with the heat. So had already paid for two nights there but when and asked for availability at another hotel, unfortunately they were full so we changed rooms still at hotel Arno and it was a little better but the smell wasn't completely gone. So needs a bit of a upgrade.

We stayed here as a couple as part if a tour. The lady on the front desk was really lovely. Our room was dated, wouldn't say it was clean, but not dirty either. The stale smoke smell put me off, it was awful. Very hot and it really doesn't pay to open the windows at night or else you get eaten alive. We did enjoy our short two night stay here though.excellent location!!! The room key, (in photo) gave us a good laugh, it was the first we came across on tour of Europe, but wasn't the last. Our room was spacious, and had one queen and two single beds. Bathroom could do with a very indepth clean or re-vamp. Breakfast was ok, have had better in two and three star hotels though. Biggest thing is, keeping the milk chilled, I found it was warm in many places.

Came to the hotel at a very late hour. The reception staff is very friendly and helpful. Though it is not a 4-5 star hotel but the friendliness of the staffs is a 5-star. They helped us to book a room for our next trip. Thought us where to park our car. Room is average but pretty clean though it is old looking. Bathroom is clean. Carpet is old though. Towel is queer, to my surprise I thought they gave us extra pillow cases. To my surprise it absorbed water very well. Breakfast is normal. I love the cheese given though it is packet but overall it filled my hunger. Would recommend to others who has a car and want a budget room with good friendly staffs and basic requirements.

We only stayed one night here as part of a group tour and each of our rooms were different. I wish I could remember which room # had the best interior but it was a quad that had soaring ceilings that were ornately designed. The room was large enough to fit eight people, although I don't know if that would've been allowed.

Towels are unusual but they were thirsty cotton fabric so those who doubt that a thin, sheet-like "towel" could work, it does.

It does get stuffy at night so leaving the windows cracked sounded like a good idea at first until we realized that we let in quite a few mosquitoes and the street was quite busy/loud all night.

A simple continental breakfast was served and coffee was superb!
