    The only good thing about the hotel was its location.

    The hotel staff was very rude and impatient when asking about tours, etc. (not all staff, but the front desk). I got eaten alive by something in my room and had bites on the exposed areas of my body. The bathroom was so small I could barely move. It was dark and dingy. I was very dissatisfied with my stay there.

    Hotel was conveniently placed, close to the train station and the centre of town. Breakfast was good and coffee is available throughout the day.

    The bathrooms were not great, no real shower cubicle, merely a curtained off area with a drain in the floor ( so everything in the room gets wet).

  • Single

    It is not a fancy hotel but the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the location is fantastic , right on Piazza Della Republica so a great base to explore one the world's most amazing cities. The room was basic but very clean , tv, private bathroom and of course views over the streets of Firenze. Breakfast is typically Italian but enough to start the day. They also have internet available for a couple of euros. All over a great little stopover option.

    Location of the hotel

    Shower in the middle of the bathroom, mid on the toilet, mid on the sink

  • Single

    Location is brilliant.

    It does not make sense that the toilet is literally over the shower area. Furthermore, it's a bit annoying that you cannot bring people over your room during the night so if you had good luck when partying, you would blow it off when bringing the fortunate over your room. Breakfast was not great either only sweet things to eat.

    Location in real historical center!

    The time for breakfast is too short - even in Saturday and Sunday from 7.00am till 9.00am only! The bathroom furnishing is totally stupid - the shower spraying directly to closet, at least it was in room were I stay...

  • Older travelers

    Central location to all city sights, bars and restaurants. Staff were helpful.

    Absence of working A/C meant that windows needed to be left open. Whether open or closed, noise from nearby bars and restaurants, or late night revellers, was excessive. Small bathroom that doubled as a wet room is an accident waiting to happen.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Because its clean and in the center.

    The shower room is slightly tiny.Tthe shower is right in the middle of the shower room. They couldn't do otherwise as the room is small.I would have preferred to have an enclosed shower instead of a curtain.

  • Family with children

    Excellent location, just a few steps from main attractions and shopping, inexpensive, fairly clean and spacious room.

    The hotel is on the 4th floor and is very hard to find, as signs are unclear. The elevator is old and too small, especially if you carry lots of luggage. No minibar or tea-making facilities in the room, you can buy water at the reception for 1.50. Breakfast is mostly composed of a great variety of sweets and some fruit, the only salty food you can eat is soft cheese. The shower in the bathroom is a joke we didn't get - it's placed just above the toilet! Overall, it's not a 3-star hotel, but would be OK for a short stay.

    Location in the centre of Florence. Large (but impersonal) room. Very good value for money. Free (but uninspiring) breakfast

    WiFi was sporadic and poor reception in our room led to intermittent access and was inaccessible to some devices (eg ipad and iphone in our case).

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    We especially enjoyed the view from our room. There was music playing in the piazza and we could hear it from our room, it felt magical and different from our everyday lives. The location was great, right in the center of everything.

    Our friends room was one without a view and smelled musty when they entered.

    Location very nice, walking distance from the Duomo and other attractions. Near the train station as well. Good breakfast with plenty of options. Good facilities, except the bathroom. Nothing critical but a little old. Shower curtain that made a mess after the bath, with water everywhere.

  • Older travelers

    The only good thing about this hotel is a location- it is on Plazza della Republica and is just 300 feet from Duomo, basically the heart of Florence. The room size is decent, but the restroom is just reduculously small even for ITaly. I don't understand why and how they thought the size of 4' by 4 ' could fit toilet, shower, sink and bide.

    Size of toilet is ridiculous,hotel charge for using Internet. The cont. Breakfast is very lean and consist only pastry and machine made coffee.

  • Single

    The hotel was right within the Piazza della Republica which is surrounded by several restaurants with outdoor seating which is great for people watching and enjoying the night air. It was also central to many stores and just a few minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio. My room was always very clean and neat and quite spacy. The staff was very friendly and helpful and always ready to provide me with an espresso and a conversation.

    Although I knew, it was a little disappointing to not have a small refrigerator to store a cold bottle of water and I couldn't fill up a bottle because the bathroom sink water was always luke warm. As for the bathroom/shower, it was small and a little slippery since the shower was not separate from everything else. That is, the shower head was on the wall next to the bide` and in front of the toilet so if I didn't surround myself with the curtain, everything would become wet.
