        Fantastic Staff, great location, beautiful building. Worth every penny!

        The stairs! 3 flights no elevator but worth it for the location.

        Have been upgraded to a single room ensuite; nice little room with tv and aircon; could even see the duomo from there; free wi-fi; everything worked fine, so no complaints :)

        This hotel don't provide air condition. Don't ever go to this hotel during the summer time, you will get a heat stroke at the hotel room!!!!!

        The location is excellent, only a few blocks from the Duomo and many other city attractions. There is a nice cafe (bar) for coffee, food, and cups of ice directly across the street. FREE WIFI! The quality was great for the relatively low price of the stay. The hotel has a unique Italian or European feel and layout where it's probably a very old building that has been renovated as a hotel (never been to a hotel like this in the US). We were upgraded at no charge to a private bathroom, which certainly won't always happen, but started our stay on a perfect note!

        The hotel is located on about the fourth floor with no elevator... at least you get some extra exercise. The beds were poor compared to most hotels and inns in the US (no box-spring) but this doesn't appear to be uncommon in Europe. There was no ice machine, which is again not uncommon in Europe.

        The location is excellent. 5 min away from the train station and the Duomo. While it is near everything, I found it to be a quiet spot.

        The room was small and the shower didn't have much pressure. The hotel needs a little revamping. There was air conditioner but it was very complicated to get it to work. The lady at the front desk was not very present and a little indifferent. Ideal for backpackers - but the hotel is overpriced.

        Very convenient location, reasonably priced

        It is 4 levels up and there is no lift

      • Couple
        9.6

        Great location, extremely clean room and bathroom, shower and wash basin in the room, free wifi, friendly staff

        You need to climb a lot of stairs to get to the hotel - it didn't matter to us since we are 20 something couple with backpacks, but might be difficult if you have young kids or seniors or a lot of luggage. One other thing is that, the remote control to the air conditioner and the password to use wifi were given to us only after we asked for them - which is not right...otherwise, it was great.

        The hotel is situated on the 4th floor but there is no a lift.

      • Family with children

        The proximity to everything

        The beds were uncomfortable and I'd been under the impression that there would be one double and one single, rather than 3 single beds

      • Family with children

        close to many attraction in Florence

        there is no lift

      • Couple

        It is walking distance to everything including the train station. Staff were friendly.

        There are like 4 flights of stairs you have to walk up until you get to the actual hotel. Not too bad unless you have lots of luggage like we did. Unfortuately, we got bitten the first night. We're not sure if it were bedbugs, but our upper body including our faces were bitten. The staff changed our sheets and put in a special bug repellent auto-spray in our rooms. So the second night we did not get bitten.

        (+): Very friendly staff. Exellent location and cleaning. Free wifi at room! (summ.): perfect hotel for this money!!!!!

        (-): Street noise (not constantly), narrow stairway, without own parking zone.

        Location Location Location. Cannot beat that for 50 Euros. Otherwise clean and simple. No thrills. Staff accommodating in terms of leaving baggage. WiFi access was great. A bit loud because of street traffic but did not bother too much.

        very clean

        the heating timer for all the hotel is in the corridor not under lock and key. anyone can touch it by mistake. one night the heating in fact did not switch on.

        Location near the city center and railway station.

        Noise, noise,.. Window goes on a noisy crossroads(busses, fire brigades, harleys, ...). No elevator. Only italien TV channels.
