Inexpensive lodging

Inexpensive hotel for sleeping, but small with few amenities. The room did have a hairdryer and small fridge. Great location only a 15 minute walk to the Duomo. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast buffet is typical Italian fare.

Not so bad, as it looked at the begining

At the begining we felt frustrated because the receptionist told us that our rooms are in another building. This was not mentioned at the hotel information that I got in the internet. Both, main and secondary parts of the hotel are within an apartament block, which are not mainteined at all. At the end,Florence is so beautiful that hotel's defficiencies are invisible.

Nice Staff, Bad Location

We actually had to walk a block from the reception desk to get to our room. Kind of strange and not something you want to do after a long day of travelling. The positives are that it's cheap & the man running the front desk was super nice!

Good location, good price

The hotel is right in front of the S.M.N. train station and within walking distance of major tourist spots. The bus stop is also right in front. Laundry, restaurants, Internet all right outside the door, as well as a supermarket. The staff spoke enough English to meet the tourist's needs. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The staff went the extra mile to help me get to the beautiful American WWII Memorial in Florence, which to my sad surprise, not many Americans bother to visit. The hotel is a good deal by Italian standards.

Buy drinks from the small shop around the block if you get tired of paying tourist prices for soft drinks and beer.
