Previous good trip advisor reviews and competitive pricing were the reasons we picked Badia. Apart from a good location I could not understand the high marks this place received. Bruno tried to jack up our pricing by claiming Expedia transmitted a wrong credit card # and he could not honor the original deal. Bruno went into ranting and raving until we proved that was nonsense. Not the welcoming attitude we thought we'd receive.
He did give us a decent apartment, as opposed to just a room, where almost everything worked. He did not provide soap or shampoo. It was also quite dusty and gritty. Noise was a factor, but that's just the historic area of Florence. No breakfast provided and internet was not functional but was too tired to argue further.
Needless to say, there are tons of other places for us to get other reservations in the future. Caveat emptor.
