Great locationPosted Jul 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel is basic, but the service is outstanding and the staff is extremely helpful. Very clean, but small room with wonderful view of downtown area. Location is within easy walking distance of all main museums and attractions.
fine stayPosted Jan 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Delightful and courteous staff. Hotel is a charming mom-and-pop operation--my single room was clean, quite small but with an updated bathroom. Very convenient location a 5 minute walk from the Santa Maria train station and a 10/15 minute from the Duomo. Entrance is a bit unusual: first you get buzzed in through a gate and then take an old-style elevette to the 3rd floor for the hotel check-in desk. Free breakfast and WiFi were much appreciated. Hotel was undergoing renovation to its lobby when I stayed.
Don't stay there!Posted Nov 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
We stayed at Hotel Andrea in September 2012. When we arrived they put us in an extremely small room. The bathroom was extremely tiny and it was literally difficult to actually take a shower due to the size. The room was small too, the bed took the entire room. Basically they had taken a room and built a very tiny bathroom within the room. I have never seen something like that and I was born in Europe and am used to the small size of things. The air conditioning was not working and the receptionist said, just to open the window. There were no mosquito nets and when asked about that she said, just plug in the anti-mosquito device. Like they work! She was very rude and even said that we are young, so we should be able to deal with this! We complained the next day to the manager and they offered us two other rooms. Both of the other rooms were much better and we moved to one of them. I should point out that there is a huge difference from room to room in this hotel, so you may have a good experience or an awful one. Finally, breakfast was not great. The bread was old and hard and the variety of food was very poor. I definitely don't recommend staying there, unless you have the option of choosing your room, which I don't think is going to happen.

No air conditioning. Didn't have anywhere to lock up my luggage when we checked out and spend the day out. Bathroom was a little dirty but besides that the reception people were really nice.

Great hotel for short stay!Posted Sep 8, 2012
Small lovely hotel. The staff very helpful. Close to station and most tourist spots. Rooms are small but offers what it says on the tin. Perfect for a short stay!

OK PlacePosted Sep 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
We stayed here for a couple days recently. It is a decent hotel. Spacious room and maintained well. Bathroom was really big and well maintained. No issues with the hotel at all. Would recommend it to anyone.

Great hotel for your Florence vacatitonPosted Nov 30, 2011 on Hotels.com
What a great hotel. Just a few minutes walk to the major sights. But heck you have come to Florence to see more than the Duomo haven't you? You are going to log some distance in this great city. You are about 7 minutes or less to the train staion, which is how we arrived. Check out the old style elevator. Nice breakfast. Very helpful staff. Would stay again in a hearbeat.

Good ValuePosted Jan 17, 2008
Very friendly hotel. Cozy atmosphere. Rooms are basic but comfortable. The view of the Duomo from my window couldn't be better. Breakfast was great, reminded me of my Grandma's.
