“Great value for money, central location, very friendly owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2010

The service from Giovanni and his family was excellent. They were very patient with my pigeon Italian and confusion over the booking (which was my fault!).
The room was a good size for a single and really was better than what I expected given the excellent rate for the room. Bathroom had everything I needed so no problem there.

The hotel is a five min walk from the central train station and is on the first floor of No 20 Via Fiume (there is a lift). It is walking distance to all the Centro Storico sites that Florence is famous for.

If I was going to say anything negative about the hotel, it would be that you could hear everyone coming in and going out, as it seemed that all the bedrooms were based around the central reception area. Once people settled down for the night, there was no problem.

I would definately stay here again and recommend it to others.
