Old and tired, cold and drafty, very cramped bathroom. Trickle of hot water coming out of the shower. Doing renovations........ Not soon enough for us tho' Cold buns cup of coffee and few biscuits is what you get for brekky On the plus side staff were friendly and linen was clean. Great location close to the Duomo.

Absolute worst in our 20 day journey.

Posted Sep 27, 2016
Pros: cheap beer
Cons: Really needs wrecking ball, then rebuild
Location: Fair location, everything in walking distance.
NO TV (even in lounge), no AC, no box spring, noisy, NO WI-FI anywhere except 1st floor lounge, breakfast is 2 hard rolls, jam/butter, imitation awful juice, poor machine coffee. Room has no soap, no shampoo, no blanket, bed is just hard mattress on wood slats. Last wall paint min 20 years ago, including last damaged wall repairs. Lobby desk worn to zero finish. Only 1 good comment: Canned beer 2.5 euro at front desk. You need a few to get to sleep on the rock. Can't lock windows, too old. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! PAY MORE

Pros: The rooftop terrace is quite nice, but there was no room to sit so we did not get to use it.
Cons: Put a shower curtain in the washroom.
Good location... but no A/C and the single fan provided in the room does little to ease the heat. There is no shower curtain in the washroom so water gets everywhere and with no fan, it's a humid mess.

Wouldn't return.

Cons: Paint job. More than a curtain in the shower, water was all over the floor.
Location: Location was good but it was very loud at night.
Out of 4 people at the front desk when we arrived only one person acknowledged us. Breakfast was a basket of rolls. They only had wifi on one floor. The building itself needed work.

Excellent location.

Pros: See above
Cons: Better reading lights.
Location: Everything is within walking distance.
I have stayed at this hotel at least a dozen times and I could not be happier. The location is perfect and the views from the roof garden are incredible. The rooms are small but very clean with comfortable beds. The staff is amazingly friendly.l

Pros: location and views,clean linens
Cons: bathrooms,general decor
Location: Perfect location - see above
The hotel is a bit shabby and in need of a lick of paint. Bathroom so tiny,the shower is above the toilet, but it was clean although the door was falling apart and would not close - no privacy at all. Beds were small but fairly comfortable and the linens were crisp, clean and white, as were the towels. Breakfast was sufficient but very low budget. The views from the 6th floor terrace were breathtaking and the location could not have been better situated amongst smart shops and a variety of cafes and restaurants with the Duomo only 5 mins walk. The views and location outweigh some of the shabbiness. I would stay there again.

Good location, terrible brakfast

Posted Jan 21, 2016
Pros: location
We stayed in this hotel for 4 days. We got a really nice big room with 1 double bed and a single bed. Our room has no TV and no aircon, it was December so the weather is nice and cold. Location is really at the center of Florence. We had a nice view of the Doumo from our veranda which we really love. The bad point of our room is that you'll hear the bell rings from the church starting 7AM. If you are a light sleeper, you must avoid this hotel. Breakfast is poor. Anyway, we had a pleasant stay.

OK hotel, good location

This hotel is in a good location, but that makes it very difficult to reach by car. Also though the room was nice it as smallish and cramped, and hot. But my biggest complaint was how difficult it was to reach by car. Staff was very nice and helpful.
