    Only good price

    Conveniently located within walking distance of all major attractions in Florence. The room itself is fairly spacious.

    Very low level of comfort. Our room's door was right in the stairwell and, since there is no elevator, it meant we could hear everyone's comings and goings during the night. There is no air conditioning, and the only way of withstanding the heat is to turn on one of the noisiest ceiling fans we ever came across, making it impossible to get a good restful sleep, and there isn't even a television set in the room to help whiling away the hours as you're trying to cope with it all. The bathroom is very small, the shower-head fell apart twice in as many days. The breakfast is hardly worth the extra 3-euro/person fee, when you can walk down the street to the corner café - which opens a full hour prior to the hotel's breakfast room - and have a more satisfying experience for half the cost.

    Nothing is good, really

    Everything is poor. Since Florence is not a very big city and every hotel is close to the attractions, so this can not be considered as an advantage of this hotel. It is worse than every hotel or hostal I've ever stayed. All the furnitures are old and dusty. It seems that the staffs seldom clean the room. Breakfast is really poor and starts late.

    This was definitely a budget place which was fine since we were only there in the city for one night. The hotel staff was nice and changed our room to a first floor room since we had a lot of luggage (we were visiting other cities in the country as well). The room size was decent enough. It was about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo, so we definitely enjoyed the location of the property.

    My husband would not have wanted to stay in the hotel more than the one night, but it was ok. We did have our own shower in the room but it's on the same floor as the rest of the the bathroom and where the toilet is--basically you pull a door around you to create the shower which is a little weird, but again this is a budget place, and I suppose we were lucky to have a private bathroom as well. I had originally picked this place because the pictures online looked cute, but our room was just a white sterile looking room, but maybe other rooms were decorated?

    We needed to stay an extra day and there was no problem with that we just had to change rooms. Into a room that was actually better.

    The room we had with the private bathroom down the hall, well the shower had no stale just a curtain with a drain in the floor.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean room and bathroom. You can walk anywhere, it's close to Duomo and S. Croce

    Not very pretty. Free wi-fi only at the bar

    Only location was good. (Sadece konumu iyiydi.)

    Very dirty. Very dark rooms. There is no windows in the room. Bathroom was very old. There is no fresh air and aircondition. (Çok kirliydi. Odalar çok karanlıktı. Odalarda pencere yoktu. Banyolar çok eskiydi. Odalar çok havasızdı ve klima yoktu.)

    Excellent location and good value for money.

    No complaints at this price. I have had better breakfasts, but not for the €3 I paid here.

    Location was good and staff friendly, gave us maps etc. room was decent

    Dingy room, grimy toilet with a poor shower facility (no door!). No sockets in the room to charge phones, only one in bathroom (hazard, given that everything gets wet when you shower.)

    Average good, but with no air- conditioning. So, it's hot during our stay in early July. Nice lobby which on the ground floor. But seems old in a whole.

    Very nice lobby!

    It's a shabby chic hotel, i liked my room because it had atmosphere and good space for all 4 people. No luxury, but the location and price is great. Nice stafff.
