My first (and last time) in Florence. I spent a good hour walking up and down the street looking for the place. It turns out the only sign they have at the front is a small 2cm x 5cm gold plaque (clearly you need optimum vision to see that from the streets).
Once you find the place it's not bad, and it's very clean. The 2 guys who run the place are friendly but use the excuse "it's an old building...that's why we haven't got any signs". If you read other reviews they've been using that excuse for a long time...fix it up fellas...
They should also invest in shower screens or curtains because it's all open space. Plus the bathroom doesn't drain properly...you have to have showers in 1minute intervals to allow water to drain.
Oh and If you don't mind the smell of raw sewerage then Florence is the place for you. Every street you walk down stinks. The good thing about Florence is the train station or airport is only a short trip from wherever you're staying so you can have a quick getaway!!!
