Positive Reviews

Super convenient location

The hotel is located on a quiet side street in central Florence, just around the corner from the train station. It's also within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shops, making it an exceptionally convenient place to stay.

Helpful, cheerful staff

The staff is always happy to see you, and they should help make your stay in Florence as enjoyable as possible. They're knowledgeable about the area and are quick to accommodate any requests you may have during your stay.

Tasty continental breakfast

The breakfast provided by the hotel has a good mix of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, rolls, and cold meats, which is quite enjoyable for a continental breakfast. Or, if you need to start the day with a hot meal, there are numerous restaurants and cafes in the area.

Negative Reviews

Uncomfortable beds

The beds are mostly uncomfortable—a few guests have described them as slightly more than camp cots with nicer blankets and pillows. It might be worth bringing an inflatable mattress pad along with you if you have difficulty with low-quality beds.

May be tricky to find

The hotel is located on the second floor of a building, so it may be a little difficult to locate it when you first arrive. Just make sure you have the address and keep in mind you'll need to go up a level to spot the property, and you should be fine.

No air conditioning

As the rooms aren't air conditioned, they tend to get quite hot when the weather is warm. If you can't take the heat, you'll be better off at a hotel that guarantees air conditioning.
