Ok for a quick stay

This is a very old establishment. Location is convenient but rooms are very old, dirty walls and stale hallways. Decent breakfast though.

Don't Get Fooled by the Name

Even though the Hotel has Best Western brand, it's owned and operated independently, which it says right at the entrance. The building is old and the hallways have a stale smell. The room has old paint and has stains in the wall like someone crushed a few mosquitoes. Bed was not very comfortable and the room we stayed in had a window facing the street and was very noisy. The staff was polite and helpful though, which made the stay bearable. The free complimentary breakfast was good. The hotel is close to Railway station, 3 minute walk to bus stop and 3 stops later you are at the Firenze SMN station. But, from walking perspective, it seems like the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. The streets don't look safe enough to walk at night. We won't stay at this hotel again. Ok for a one night crash, not for a vacation. It totally ruined our vacation mood and was a far cry from the hotel we stayed at in Rome.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

There are a few restaurants that deliver to the hotel for free, which is good. Other than that, you have to walk at least 15 minutes to go to some main street with restaurants.

Helpful staff and great value walking distance from city center

We were offered an executive suite in a unit across the street, controlled by key-card access. Unfortunately, the hotel would not give us a second key, so it was hard for one person to go out while the other stayed in the hotel, since the key card is required for the lights in the room to work. The executive extended-stay suite we were given had a beautiful bathroom, satellite TV, and a courtyard area outside. This hotel was a great value during the off-season. The staff was helpful and even allowed us to leave our bags at the hotel after checking out, allowing us to explore the city without our luggage.

Friendly staff, old-world charm with modern amenities

This hotel had good staff who were helpful in giving us directions, lending us a power adapter, and providing a warm welcome. It was about a 45 minute walk from the train station. The property is in an old building, perhaps early 20th century or older, but the features and fixtures were all new. It is located outside of the downtown core but within walking distance. It is in a quiet hilltop neighborhood near San Giacomo church but is near some bars, cafés and restaurants.

Not far away from this hotel is Trieste's roman theater, which is beautifully illuminated at night, and the fountains, statues and monuments of Trieste. Trieste is beautifully lit at night.

Clean and Affordable

Clean and Affordable location. Staff is friendly, price is in consideration of Location. Off the beaten path in a residential area.

It was OK...

Staff was helpful. The room was clean yet very noisy (#109), smelled of cigarettes and the bathroom/shower is super TINY . I couldn't wash my hair properly due to the size. Location is fine... 10-15 mins walking from Firenze station.

Nice for the price

The hotel had plenty of space for us. It was a 1 bedroom condo. But it did not have a restaurant. The condo was new and very clean.

Very helpful staff...

Our hotel was close to the train station...but not very convenient to the city or many choices in places to eat dinner. Luckily the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful in providing us bus information and tickets to be able to travel within the city. Without them we would have wandered around frustrated and hungry. Room was clean and good sized...we also seemed to luck out and get a room with a balcony...as we did not see any other balconies I do not think this is the norm. But a nice surprise for us!

Climb the Duomo! The view is worth it if you have the steam to make it to the top. One of my favorite memories of Florence.
