                      Great location. Very close to the station and most of the main sites. Rooms were quite spacious.

                      Small bathrooms and no air conditioning.

                      It's site.

                      The breakfast could be better, specially the bread (only one kind). The room was too hot and you needed to pay more for the air conditining (even when it says it's included). The bed was too noisy and we woke anytime we moved.

                      I liked the location since it was extremely close to main areas. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

                      The room was extremely small with very little space to move and the bed was 150cm wide for a double room. I had around 10 mosquito bites in the first night although the window was closed! I couldn't see any mosquitos either! I don't know how I was bitten that bad...

                      Location was amazing, Duomo and city landmarks were pretty close. Friendly staff also.

                      Bed was extremely uncomfortable.

                      Well-located.

                      I booked a room with air-conditioner, however only got a room with fan in the end. It was extremely hot in Florence during July. The staff I met there was not that friendly, and also inefficient. Besides, it's annoying that we need to return the key everyday when we go out, and collect it again when we came back.

                      The location was good, next to the cathedral. Very friendly staff. Good value for money (33 euros for a double room).

                      We had a shared bathroom on the floor, the shower was just a shower head on the wall and you couldn't see if the bathroom was occupied. The windows were thin, so in the morning there was much noise from the street. There were no parking possibilities (if you didn't want to pay 25-30 euros).

                      It was really close to all of the major attractions. It was very convenient for us. Everything was so central. Also, we felt like it was relatively safe for two girls walking back in the dark.

                      The facilities are very good for sleeping in. It was perfect for two or three nights, if you are staying for a week you should upgrade to a three star hotel at least.

                      I liked the kindness of the people who receive you (although some of them don´t speak very good english they try to help you in everything), the big space in the room, the fact that the breakfast is included and it it´s pretty well (perhaps adding some fruits would be great). Finally the location is very convenient, very close to the train station and to the main attractions as well.

                      The location was perfect making all te sights very accessible. Also the staff were very helpful and friendly.

                      I found the area itself a little noisy at times.

                      Location is good, very close to Piazza Duomo, Galleria Dell'Accademia and railway station, by this street there are several restaurants not too expensive and "trattoria" where you can eat

                      Wi-FI is not included in the price, you have to pay € 2,00 more, the building is too old and it does not look very good, you have to knock and wait till the main door is open, which sometimes could be more than 2 minutes; seems more like a Hostel when you first get in.

                      Fair breakfast. Fair location. Nothing really great to say, just an average budget hotel.

                      Wifi doesn't work in rooms.

                      The location is very convenient.

                      The exit door had to be opened by the receptionist and we were requested to come back before midnight. The shower was in the middle of the bathroom and the watter was throwing on the floor.

                      The location was allright, that's all.

                      1-The room was too cold. İt was 8 degrees in the night (outside) and no heating in the room and when we complained, they claimed that temp of the rooms was 23 degrees and no need for heating. We used the blankets! 2-Entrance of the building is interesting and lifts are very small. 3-The old guy at the hotel can not speak English. 4-The room was too small and you can nor see the daylight without opening the windows. 5-Although the wifi was free, they requested 2 eur, but when I rejected, they gave the password free. 6-I can say that the hotel can be cheap but expensive with the service. İ am sure anyone can find an approx hotel with paying less.

                      Good location to explore Florence. Good cost-benefit relation. We reserved the cheapest room, so it was small, but not a problem. Other comments said the rooms could be old. Ours was relatively new, with good bed and sink. Recommend if no problems of staying in a small room and enduring cold in the winter. As it is in a pedestrian area, recommend not choosing this hotel if coming by car.

                      The heating does not work at night and during day, just in the evening and morning and is not very hot, so the room is cold in the winter. Just as we arrived the administrator (owner?) offered us a bigger room for just more 25 euros/day, which we declined and then a room with bathroom for just more 20 euros/day, also declined. Our reservation was aprox. 35 euros/day. The same administrator was sleeping in a room nearby and using the shared bathroom, which seems odd.

                      Wonderful staff, great location!

                      It was pretty noisy at night - our room looked out over the street and it was very loud.
