NOT FOR EVERYONEPosted Sep 28, 2013
Pros: The air conditioning is very good, and the host/manager goes to extraordinary efforts to accommodate, the rooms are clean.
Cons: Quality of the mattresses could be upgraded, an extra chair in the room would have been appreciated
Location: Walking to the facility is somewhat hazardous, as the street is narrow with narrow sidewalks and a irregular surface. It is a high traffic area.
Not for seniors or persons with leg, knee or back problems. Exit from the tiny lift is hazardous. No smoke alarms, entrance and exit is controlled by a very dated metal key system. The plus side is the owner / manager is a very likeable fellow who tries to please, the rooms are clean even though there is a 14" TV that only receives Italian channels. Even getting into this facility can be challenging with 18" sidewalks and cars parked up against the front door of ARCO ANTIO. For students looking to explore Florence on a budget - go for it, it will submerge you into the true culture of Florence.

A pleasant surprisePosted Aug 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
The 6 room property has been renovated beautifully and offers a standard of comfort way above its rating. I had a single room, but even this was quite spacious by Italian standards, with a king single bed, a good sized wardrobe with a mini safe, a desk and a flat screen TV. The bathroom was small but had modern fittings and was spotlessly clean and included a reasonable range of toiletries. The air-conditioning worked perfectly. My only slight gripe would be that the bed was a little springy though that didn't stop me getting a good night's sleep. Breakfast was included and was taken in the charming breakfast room. The continental breakfast selection was excellent - juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread, cold meats, cheese. There was a machine which made excellent coffee. One other thing I liked was that you could help yourself to tea and coffee at any time during the day. The WiFi internet was free and the service was good and reliable. The B&B is a 5 minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station and also within walking distance of the centre of Florence where all the attractions are. There are also many restaurants within walking distance of the B&B. I felt very comfortable here and Matteo does a great job in running the B&B. It's a shame that the stairwell is a little dark and dingy and that the lift small, but otherwise this is a 2 star property that offers a 5 star service.

Modern hotel with a feel of ItalyPosted Jul 9, 2013
Pros: Air conditioner!! Location, breakfast and modern, but authentic decor.
Location: Duomo, shopping, restaurants, river, train station.
We were only at the hotel one evening but it was exactly what we needed. The room was clean, modern, air conditioned and comfortable. Bathroom was nice sized and functional. Location was in walking distance where we were coming from. Friendly and helpful young man at front desk.

Just right!Posted Apr 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Clean and quaint with great location near the main station and a quick walk to the attractions. Staff was wonderful and the room was big by Italy standards. Breakfast is standard Italian with a bunch of small options and there is a coffee machine so you can choose your style (latte, cappuccino, etc.).

Nice place to stayPosted Jan 21, 2013
Location: Walking distance to main attractions
Staff in this hotel are just great and is good located. Staff will provide you with exact direccion how to get there impossible to get lost with all the small bridges and small streets in Venice. Breakfast is basic but nice.

PerfectPosted Jun 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very easy to get to from Firenze S.M.N Station. When you arrive at the B & B it's a little daunting, but just press the buzzer, either walk up the narrow stairs or jump in the one man lift (my hubby squished in, but not with luggage!) go to the third floor. Matteo is the owner/manager, he is very helpful. They provide breakfast (not very filling and no variety though) . We loved that the windows in the room opened up to let fresh air in. Our bed was a little springy. The bedroom was huge but the bathroom was very tiny. They have free wifi that was the best I had out of 15 different hotels in Europe

A very good reasonably priced hotel so close to the Venice Rail Station
