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.

Wonderful location

The best part of the hotel was it's location - It was near the train station and within 30 minutes walking distance of most sites to see in Florence as well as the shopping market - Free internet was a plus -There were choices of restaurants within the block - Staff was most courteous and helpful - rooms were clean and comfortable, although very small and the hair dryer was inadequate. Would stay there again

Great location, clean & tidy

Clean, comfortable and a very central location within 5 mins of Florence centre, sights and markets/shops. Staff very helpful with great language skills. Good continental breakfast. Nice shower, beds etc. Only downside rather small room (budget price though)and lighting in room quite dull. Otherwise a very nice hotel. Reccomended

Great Location and the best service staff in town.

The hotel was good for the price. We stayed in the economy room so it was small. I assume the other rooms (standard and deluxe) must be better. The breakfast was very good and abundant. The staff is the best. Nick and Lukas are really good as what they do. Thank you!

Great Stay

Really enjoyed our stay. The staff was great. Only drawback was the breakfast. It had just enough but really wasn't a huge amount. Would I stay again. YES.

Good Deal in Florence

The hotel is very conveniently located, a few minutes from the train station. Staff is friendly. The rooms are recently renovated so it is brand new and very clean. The breakfast is so so. The main draw back is that there is no elevator from the street to the reception area (very small), so you must carry the luggage yourself. However, the staff saw us coming and came down to carry the luggage up for us. For the price, this is a very good deal.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a bus to Barberrino Designer outlet, it's 35min trip each way and it's 15 euro's round trip plus you get a 10% coupon booklet for most stores, nice few hours to spend on shopping.

Small is Beautiful

We (2 of us) were in a small, economy room. Yes, it was small, but we did get used to the limited space. Otherwise, everything was excellent and the people at the desk were always helpful and friendly. The location was great, with most places of interest within walking distance.
