“Convenient and chilled hotel”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Not too far from the station and easy to walk in to the historic centre. I found the atmosphere very relaxed and the host very accommodating and knowledgeable about Florence.

Would recommend for short stays in town!

Where do I begin. First we are a party of three women aged 60 years. We arrived by train to Florence from Venice getting in about 2100. Was not sure how far B & B hotel was, so took a cab getting to B & B about 2130. The door was locked, no name on front door, a very tiny name plate with a door bell was all we found. I was so glad I wrote the phone number down before we left home. The taxi driver was very helpful, as he called the B & B manager to come and open door to let us in. Waiting about 10 min outside with the taxi driver, the manager comes to open door. We go down a very dark hallway, but has motion lights that did turn on. End of hall was another huge door that he had to open. We go up the first flight of stairs to our room. Again, another key. The room was clean, not many towels for the three of us, no air conditioner, very loud as we had to open the windows and there was one fan we could use. There was no phone in the room in order to call for any "supplies", questions about the area, etc. The B & B was not manned all night. No one at desk. We stayed two nights. Since we got in about 2130, there was no restaurant close enough to get a bite to eat, therefore no dinner. The second day we got up for the breakfast but missed it as we had a tour booked, and the breakfast started at 0800. Was given three keys to take when we leave the premises. Again, in the evening we came back by taxi. The taxi driver waited for us as we were just going to drop our stuff and head out for dinner. The three keys were very hard to use. We could not open the second door for at least 20 min. Let the taxi leave. Finally got back in our room with great difficulty, and again no one at desk to ask for help. Again, was afraid we would not get in if we were any later, so again, no dinner. I would not advice this B & B . Not a place to stay. It was pretty sketchy.

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

sorry, that 3 women age so expert in jars over the world, they did not know to move in a city as beautiful as Florence, also, the difficulty that you ladies have had, it seems a bit exaggerated, because the dinner is was under our structure, the pizzeria, the classic Italian restaurant, Japanese restaurant, and so on, not to list them all, if not most do not finish.
For the reception, it seems to me that we are not a 3-star hotel to hold a safety officer to ensure that must watch over you, then, as you wrote, you had the keys to the main entrance, and the second is delal room, if usufruirle then you do not know, we can not DDouble a course how to use simple keys, as if they were your own home. Also, when you get past 10 in the evening, please advise, as has been said travel agencies, because, as we repeat, we are not a hotel but a B & B, then, we are not obliged to wait, that your arrival you submit the hours of night .... if you were well aware, potetvate, he writes, now you only use email. to express and discriminate, but the important things you ignore them ....

Stayed there 2 nights, with a special discount. It was incredibly difficult to find a free room during the we (!), so basically they decided for us.
It could be tricky to find, since there are no signs, ask for directions upon reservation. Room was fine, quite big, although a little smelly when we arrived. Bathroom was kind of small, but it was fine for 2 nights. Breakfast was ok too, nothing too fancy, but you'll get fresh coffee, cereals, yogurts, bread and jam or cheese.
The hotel is about a 15 minutes walk to the city center, there are some restaurants nearby.

We wandered to the area with our map as others had said it was hard to find!
The manager came out to the streets and in a bizarre situation actually came across us and asked if we were looking for the (his hotel) we said yes and he said "Follow me"
We did and stayed two nights, really cool building we were both pleasantly surprised that it was an old apartment block, this made it unique and different from other 3x hotels.
The manager was helpful, gave us an adapter as wee had taken the wrong one and provided us with two extra pillows which were very much appreciated.
Great stay, nice manager and very comfortable bed.

Thank You

Room Tip: Just Google the location to help you find it and you will be ok, 10 minutes walk from the main train...

We stayed here recently for 3 nights.
It is on a residential street about 5-10 minutes walk from the main train station. Previous reviewers have complained that it is hard to find but our directions from the hotel were spot on and we had no difficulty finding it. It is on the first floor of an old apartment block through a very atmospheric hallway which added to the charm.
Breakfast was good but the staff were a little unorganised.
The only issue we had were with the keys- one for the outside door and one for the room door- we had problems with both of them and were nearly locked out one day. As it's a guesthouse, the staff aren't always there.
However, in general, a nice place to stay.

The hotel?? it's self is in an apartment block, with no signs outside, I spent 1 full hour walking up and down the street to try and find it, luckily a local shop keeper showed me where it was.
I found it a pleasant place to stay, It's only 10 minutes from the train station. The breakfast was really basic and I mean basic. Not badly located.

Room Tip: That is something I cannot do as where I was every room was on that floor.

We experienced a wonderful stay at La Corte dei Principi hotel in Florence. The room was bright, airy and very comfortable......The beds were comfortable, room was clean and it was air conditioned,which was great as the weather was extremely hot and humid. We all enjoyed the breakfast provided and the coffee was great.....Thanks to Carmine and Giovanni who made our stay so enjoyable and accommodated us with anything that we needed....can't wait to return there in the near future......thanks so much.......regards danielle and frank volonnino and family....ciaooooooooooooo
