      Good location,helpful staff,free Wi-Fi.We didn't like the double room and they give us triple room for the same price.

      nothing

      It's clean and provides basic facilities for a short city break; main thing is its convenient location

      Being close to the station and city center.

      The bathroom was so small and it smelled like draining.

    • Single

      fairly good location: in the downtown, close both to the railway station and to museums and other sites to visit. They offer free wi-fi Internet, though only at the lobby

      rooms decoration is a depressing nightmare. Also the first one room they gave me had window right on the backyard of a fish restaurant, was very noisy and smelled. When I refused, they gave a better room, but as I said.. decoration was very old-fashioned and depressing. Dark green walls with pictures of fish

      The hotel facilities are quite poor. It is an old building which needs refurnishments. Toilets are extremely old. The shower and the WC are put together in several rooms, which provides unpleasant feelings from a hygienic point of view. Howeer, it is not a rare layout according to the hotel staff. We were a large group of friends and none of us will ever repeat the experience.

      the exellent position in centro storico

    • Couple

      only the location was fine.

      is the worst hotel i ever stayed. is like a hotel of 1-2 stars. the bathroom is a nightmare, it was a twin bed with holes in the mattress and it wasn't clean.

    • Single

      Just Location.

      Dirty and small room. Terrible hotel bath room, I've ever have in my life.

    • Single
      5.4

      Excellent location and helpful staff

      The double room was like a railway carriage, starting at one end at 1.5m and the other around 2m. Beds were end to end. The hotel must have better rooms!

    • Couple
      2.8

      Internet is bad, staff is ok but not helpful. Felt like a cheap motel, bathroom was tiny. I never thought it possible to have a bathroom in a coat closet

      Motel6 is a huge upgrade from this hotel

    • Single
      7.4

      Had a very nice breakfast and the room was small, but comfortable.

      It was very difficult to connect to the hotel's Wi-Fi.

    • Couple
      3.8

      only location, everything else was far below my expectations and far from what I saw on the pics on web presentation

      stuff, cleanliness, room in general... for 2 nights that I spent in this hotel, I had to change 3 rooms. and believe me, I am not a sort of demanding person - taking into account all my trips, this was the first time that I had to change rooms because they were so poor

    • Single
      6.2

      Conveniently placed in centre of Firenze. Also near railway station.

      Very small room. The shower was the very, very, very smallest that any shower could be.

    • Couple
      8.8

      The breakfast was good, and the staff were very kindly.
