Positive Reviews

Excellent location in Central Florence

The property is a favourite of travellers who wanted to stay close to the train station and the town centre. Both can be reached within a ten-minute walk. Along the way, there are cozy cafes and high-end restaurants. The majestic Duomo and Palaces are also very close.

Perfect for overnight stay!

The hotel may not be offering special facilities like pools and gym rooms, but it is very adequate in providing clean, quality rooms according to guests. The property is perfect for those who only want to stay for the night, and for travellers who spend most of the day touring the beautiful city of Florence.

Informative and Helpful staffs

Staff members speak good English, and can take instruction well. There were almost no negative reviews about them. In fact, many guests loved the fact that there always seem to be a cheerful staff around to help.

Negative Reviews

Everything is old and dated

Most guests commented that the property wasn't able to hide its age, pointing out dated facilities one after another. There were rust patches on the tiles throughout the hallways. Some rooms have a strong, damp smell, and many guests seemed annoyed that doors are still opened by metal keys.

Showering issues

Showering was problematic in some rooms, as guests experienced. There were bathrooms that were filled easily with water because the shower had no base, and that the drain was too weak. Guests also reported that they weren't able to control the temperature of the water that comes out of the shower.

Cheap, uninspiring breakfast

Breakfast is average and unsatisfying; with many guests stating that the foods served are made from poor ingredients. Guests also added that they had to go out of the property and find a restaurant for a decent breakfast.
