Good bargain option

I found the value for money to be excellent compared to other Florence properties. Staff was particularly nice, and I think is one of the biggest selling points. Be prepared if you get a single--they're very small, but still comfortable.

Christmas in Florence

Overlooking the Medici Chapel dome and right around the corner from the Mercado, the Duomo and very close to the train station, we actually hadn't realized how lucky we were when we booked this little hotel from London. The staff were very helpful and all spoke very good English and helped us when we attempted speaking to them in broken Italian. The room was clean, simply decorated and quiet at night. Altogether, we would stay there again anytime.

Great location in Florence

This hotel is really close to the central train station. It was an easy walk to all the tourist attractions. The neighborhood was safe and there were lots of great places to eat nearby. The breakfast had a good variety and the staff there was very attentive.

Suitable for a short stay focused on convenience.

Two of the three front desk staff were outstanding in terms of friendliness and willingness to help. The location is about two blocks from the train station, making it easy if you are using Florence as a base to sightsee in the area. (Sienna, Pisa, and Chianti are easy daytrips.) It is not an upscale neighborhood, but it never felt unsafe. Two flights of steps lead to reception so be prepared (no elevator!). The coffee and croissants at breakfast were good, but little beyond that. The biggest downside: the room and bathroom we had (classified as a double) were uncomfortably small. If you only want to stay one night it may be sufficient. Any longer, not so much.

The Mercado Central is a half block away from the hotel. Go inside and up the stairs to the new and modern food court/retail space. The layout, ambiance and selection of food is great. Plus the prices are very reasonable.

Wow! Excellent room for an excellent value!

For the price, I wasn't expecting too much, but I was very impressed! The room was small, but very comfortable and very clean. The staff was one of the most friendly of all of the hotels we stayed in. We would ABSOLUTELY stay here again.

Perfect for a Florentine getaway

The hotel is in an excellent location for central Florence, right near the markets and San Lorenzo. There is a flight of stairs to navigate before you get to the reception, and then a very slow lift to take you to other floors. The room was cosy, with a very compact bathroom. But we were out and about all day so didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The breakfast was adequate, no hot food but a reasonable selection of cold food. Very close to restaurants and shops, so we were able to easily drop off our shopping before continuing to see the churches and galleries.

If you visit Florence in a low season, do not pre-book the attractions such as the Uffizi. It is cheaper to just turn up and buy a ticket at the door.
