awful

We booked to stay here for 3 nights, and only managed one, the name suggests it's a hotel, it isn't its a hostel. The room was dated and old, the bed was tiny and felt like we were sleeping on packing crates. The decor was about 30 years outdated and depressing. We had a room right by road and all you could hear all night were coaches and drunk people screeching. Everytime someone went passed the door (which didn't open or close properly) the door would rattle. Then there are only 2 bathrooms for several rooms. We hurriedly left in the morning after booking somewhere much nicer. Do yourself a favour and book somewhere a bit nicer if you can afford it.

Friendly Staff and Great Location

The staff is helpful and its only a 3 minute walk from the train station and about 10 minute walk form the Duomo. It wasn't a bad stay if you aren't looking for anything fancy.

dont go there

We went for a 6 days trip to Italy, spent 2 days in Florence and this hotel was our worst experience of the whole trip, room wasn't clean there was hair on the bed and when we arrived we found out that breakfast wasnt included and we had to share bathroom, so if you think it's cheaper than other places consider that they dont include breakfast and it doesnt have its own bathroom. It's close to the train station so that was good because you can just wall to get there. The people who was at the desk were not so nice. That was the most expensive hotel we paid during the trip and the worst experience.

Nice location, reasonable value

This hotel is reasonable and easy to find. Numerous and quality restaurants are nearby. It is easy to walk to the most important sites of Florence from this hotel. The staff moved our luggage out of our room in advance of our check-out time, but gave us another room to change our clothes after breakfast. We would probably stay here again.
