Poor experience

Just totally regret why I booked and stayed here. Very bad & Tiny room. AC didn't stopped working every 15 minutes. We complained to the front desk and they gave us plastic broken bottle to release the water from AC every 15 minutes. WHAT A CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! POOR. WHEN WE ASKED FOR ROOM CHANGE staff was like why didn't I complain when I checked in !!!. I said check your log I complained to each and every staff all shift and no body seems to communicate to others. Staff seems to be friendly but looks like owner doesn't seems to be helpful or fix any issues in the hotel. Bathroom was so tiny. Breakfast was Horrible. Overall Terrible experience. We paid lot of money for dump like this. Never recommend any one to go to this hotel.

Great location and good value for money

Hotel is in a perfect location, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to be able to get to the Dome in a 10 minute walk. Room was small ish with a small bathroom but was perfect for what we needed and for the money, was more than adequate. Hotel staff were friendly and there was always someone there.

Shower is a joke

The 2nd fl walk up is a hike in it's self. The man on duty was like a robot I think he forgot that people have never been to Florence so repeating things 100 times doesn't help if you don't know where you are going. The room was clean but, the shower was a joke. Thank goodness there was a bidet and we washed up in the sink and the bidet. The shower curtin was a gross nasty mess. The location was ok could have been better. I would not go back.

private shower a joke

the hotel was clean and the bed was comfortable but the pillows were to thin and the show was a joke and the shower curtain was really gross on the bottom. In the end I just washed up best I could and took a real shower when I got to my next destination. I wont be back.

Value Hotel, Not Much Else

The benefits of this hotel were that it is very centrally located. It is only a few blocks from the train station as well as to the San Marco Convent. The rooms were clean. The building was not so clean. There appears to be a hostel in the floor below and you definately check behind you on the way up the stairs. The rooms are VERY basic with no refrigerator and a bathroom that has a shower in the middle of the floor. If you like multitasking, this is the hotel for you! Also, be aware that wifi is only avaialble in the lobby. Still, it was cheap and close to everything. All we needed was a bed for the night.

It was more of a Bed & Breakfast than Hotel

Location was Ok. It was close to the tourist attractions. However, the hotel amenities were not good. The bed was not comfortable. It was an an old residential place converted to a Hotel. The Hotel is located in the second floor. There are other tenants located in the same building. The hotel does not have a lift and we had to carry our luggage up the stairs. The Breakfast area was also too small. It should be considered as a Bed & Breakfast place rather than a hotel.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

While shopping for leather coats or other stuff; do an aggressive bargaining. For leather coats; the bargained price should be less than 50% of the original quoted price.

smallest bathroom ever

The hotel room was OK. Only a small walk from the station.The bathroom seems like a closet with a shower and toilet in the same area, and super thin walls... People were super nice and helpful. If can get over that then everything else is OK. Can not say the same for the lower floor hotel, not helpful at all....

We even liked the 56 steps

Staff was always on site. Room was spotless. Breakfast area well appointed and kept provisioned. We expected some street noise---and got it, but the shutters really subdue well enough most of the time. Relaxed atmosphere. And the 56 stair steps---better than a stair master.

Location isn't always enough

Good: Staff and location. Small hotel with minimal staff, all of whom were very personable and helpful. Well positioned between the train and bus station and the Duomo and other key sites. Challenging: Climbing 2 floors with no elevator was trying - with heavy luggage. Rooms were clean but spartan and in dire need of refurbishing. Zero view, but that was not expected or needed. Breakfast starts only at 8:00 and is below minimal. The general neighborhood is rife with small hotels. I feel I should have done more homework to come up with a better offer for the economical rate that was charged.
