Recent guest reviews

When you arrive you have to ring them so you can get through the gate. This place is very cozy. They can accommodate families, they have twin beds they can move around and some rooms have a 3rd bed. The rooms are roomy, worn down, basic wear from age BUT clean. Its def an older building. Sheets are very white and clean. Bathroom was spotless and very clean. Our room was great. However, my mother in laws room wasn’t as nice. Ceiling or something leaked a bit. Color scheme was ugly lol but ours was nice. However the staff overall was really nice. we arrived early and had to head out right away so they let us store our luggage in a locked room. View from the rooms are amazing!!! Large beautiful windows. Showers are on the small side. Some of the staff speaks spanish. I would stay here again. It felt like i was staying at a friends house.

We Stayed here for 4 nights, and it was perfect for what we wanted. The Room was clean and safe, there was plenty of hot water for the shower, and the bed was was comfortable. Breakfast was included and was very nice, continental breakfast and good coffee. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and always ready to help with any questions and to give advice local attractions. Its not a modern building, and the rooms are not modern, but they were very nice and clean, and for the money it was excellent value, and I will definitely book it again when I return.

This hotel is located in building 3rd floor, not a standart hotel. Infront of park, you can find parking on a side.. Rooms are old fashion, feels like you came to visit your grandparents..:). Though bathrooms are very clean, there is small terrace for smokers.. breakfast- cosi-cosi, nothing Wow, to get good coffee better go out.. but very quiet kind old Signore grandpa will meet you with kindness and will be very polite and smiling.. room what we chose in on picture wasn't the same what we've got.. but anyway for 2 nights what is needed- bed, internet, TV, clean bathroom and some breakfast.. 7 out of 10

Got so much mosquitos bites! Very noisy place next to a park that seem they play games in the late evening! The lady owner is not very friendly! Not my style of place to stay! I thought it was a hotel but more like a B&B!

We stayed here for almost a week, it has good location, easy to walk to the center, to the train station. Negatives: Room was not clean, dusts in fake flowers, heater, lights, ventilator. (although bed was made everyday, towels were changed) Bathroom is really small and had strange smell. It is good to stay for few nights just to sleep and take a shower, but for this price i think you can get better place. It claims to be 3* hotel, but in Milan we stayed in 2* and it was much better..

We just stayed here for 2 nights last week, rooms are very small & the bathroom is tiny, im 6ft - 190lbs and i could not turn around in the shower,,, Location was perfect though, i read some reviews that it was loud but i did not find it too bad at all. Breakfast is not great, basics, cereal,fruit, dry cake , great coffee though. The view is amazing overlooking florence at sunset. I think if your staying for one or two nights & you do not spend too much time in your rooms this place is great

Pro: - location was near the station and city center which is a plus - Reception staff were very nice and willing to give advice regarding on what to visit in Florence. - rich breakfast giving the fact we were in Italy. - clean room - large bed Con: - small room - noisy at night because of the square in front of the hotel. but was bearable - the room we stayed was at somehow an attic. i would have preferred a normal floor. Overall , we would stay again at this hotel and recommend it.

It was very hard to find the hotel itself - just pay attention while you have arrived. it's in 3rd floor (formerly appartment converted to hotel)., Rooms are very old and not well equipped. I liked staff - 2 guys which were very gentle but, facility is not in a good condition, AC was not working, heater was working but switched off (dont know why) - bathroom is very noisy (fan), Brkfst is not soo good, but could be managed - but still, location is perfect and do not think that, money worth to spend there - there was Wifi - but signal was very poor - better not to have it at all

Piazza dell'Independenza is a good location as it is near the station and centre. The hotel has some charm with its old-fashioned furniture and vintage lift (out of order on the first day, a bit of a problem since reception is on the third floor). I'm not sure it's woth three stars; the rooms are quite small, the shower is narrow, with water taking ages to warm up and zero pressure once it's hot. The mattress seemed a bit soft in my taste, but I slept really well, so no complaint about that. Buffet breakfast was not much, but on the plus side you can have it on a terrace.

Negatives: It turned out that a room facing Piazza della Indipendenza was not the advantage we expected: almost very night there were noisy gatherings of area residents in the piazza (which is really a park), which interfered with our slumber. And the absence of a screen on the window meant that keeping the windows open for ventilation also allowed some pesky mosquitoes to enter, which also adversely affected our slumber. Also, a group of teenage tourists in the rooms on the floor above ours were astonishingly noisy the first night they were there. Positives: Carlo, the primary concierge. The 1929 lift. Its location a bit away from the tourist activity.
