The worst ever

BEWARE, NOT AS DESCRIBED!!! Our room #8 had no telephone, no internet, no alarm clock, the "mini-bar" was an empty fridge with 2 bottles of water over 5 days. There were springs poking out of the top of the mattress. on the right side. The bathroom smelled like urine every time it was closed up, a couple of lights were out and when we asked the front desk to replace the bulbs so we could see better in the dark room, we were told that is not possible. We also asked about a telephone or alarm clock and were told there was nothing they could do to assist us. They are supposed to change the sheets and towels every 3 days; our sheets were never changed as evident by the ink stains and other stains that were always present. Location is the only good thing, other than that a total rip off. I have been to Italy many times and this was the WORST!

Black 5 -- Excellent Location; Other Amenities only Fair

Best part about this hotel is its location in the historic part of Florence. Uffizzi, Academia, and Duomo are all easily walkable. Problems we encountered involved missing the check-in window (14:00 - 18:00) by 5 minutes. The English-speaking clerk had left, and we had to wait for the young woman who cleans the rooms and provides breakfast to ride over on her bike. Since she spoke only Italian (and we speak only a few words), we had to postpone most of our questions until the next day. Although the hotel advertises a lift, you have to walk up 1 and 1/2 flights of stairs before you can access it. Not recommended for people with even minor handicaps. Room and bath are small -- even by European standards. No chairs or desk, so we had to improvise to use the in-room internet. Breakfast was ordinary, but without fruit or hot food. There are 4 keys required to progress from the front entrance to your room. Don't try driving yourself, since even the taxis have to follow a convoluted route; and parking is next to impossible.

Cafe Italiano is just around the corner from the Hotel. It was the best and closest of the 3 hotel-suggested restaurants we tried.
