Excellent location in Florence

This hotel is very close to the Florence train station and well located for exploring Florence. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and offered a full variety of meets, cereals, breads, etc. The rooms were clean. It seems most Italian hotels have very firm mattresses. Street noise at night could be an issue but adds to the overall charm. I would stay there again.

Cannot be recommended

The only positive thing about this hotel is that it is situated 2 minutes from the train station. Otherwise, the first night: we didn't have hot water (they fixed that for the second and last night). But the huge problem is the bathroom...smelled like a public restroom (or worse) and let the room smelling as well! Out of all the hotels I booked in Italy (had about the same budget for all), this is the only one I would NOT recommend.

Good Service not so good maintenance

Good location, clean room, and very nice if you do not want to stay in the room too much. TV did not work, it was in italian anyway. No problem there. Wifi could not connect. Still have to pay for Wifi to use in the lobby. It was quite normal to pay for internet services in the places we stay, but unusual to have to be in one spot to use it. Seriously did not pick up anywhere else but the lobby. Shower and plumbing slow to drain, but usable. Over all ok... Good breakfast (inclusive), great staff and very clean rooms (a must). Would stay there again, if could get an european phone with wifi...
