The building is new and modern, very clean, good room and shower.
The parking is also a difference if you are driving

Reviewed 16 January 2012

The hotel isn't bad, but no fireworks. It isn’t new, but has been renovated recently, so it’s quite clean. My first bad impression was the reception: it looks very poor, specially the “hotel shop” that looks like a gas station shop or even worse, and the receptionists wearing sweaters, don’t look like a hotel staff at all. I’m not sure if they are helpful, I would rather call them “formally polite”. The rooms look like at the photos so that’s good: no cheat on the internet. The rooms are really small (I saw on the plans that there are some spacious rooms in other part of the hotel, but only Italian people lived there. I don’t understand why we were not given a larger room if the hotel was completely empty, a standard double room is really small. The other problem is that we could hear every word our neighbors said, no intimacy at all.
There were few other inconveniences like no trash can in the room (only the small one in the bathroom), one big shower towel per person (no towels to dry our hair or hands), dirty windows, no space to put your clothes, so we had everything in our bags, and a terrible mess in the room).
The cleaning service is OK but they do only what they really HAVE TO(in the end they only change or even dry the towels and they make the bed, they don’t vaccum, etc.)
Unfortunately the location is not good: 20 minutes walking to the city center, 25-30 to the Duomo, but it’s quite well communicated.
The breakfast cost about 7 euro per person and it included bread, ham, cheese, scrambled eggs, jam, croissants and oranges. Not expensive but not a bargain either.
Concluding, the hotel wasn’t really good, but our friends’ hotels located in the city center were even worse, so maybe it’s not the worst choice to stay at BB Capitol.

The location is very central, only 10-15 mins walk to Dom. Many bus-stops (including hop-on hop-off tours) located nearby for buses to almost all directions. The rooms are air-conditioned and spacious with nice view from higher floors. The breakfast is continental. Just take care, to get breakfast coupons a day early to avail discount offers. Every penny worth! Fully recommended.

We are from the UK and we stayed here for 3 nights in October. The rooms are very small which wasnt a big deal but the bed bugs sure were! We got bitten to bits each night we slept. Breakfast was nice and had a small but tasty selection.
The reception staff are rude and you feel like a massive inconvenience in their day each time you enquire about something.
Beds are really uncomfortable and rock hard. We had a double bed which was simply 2 singles pushed together. Only given one pillow each and although the hotel tries to give itself a modern edge it really isnt working.
Location is pretty good. Around a 15 min walk to the main part of Florence.
We flew into Pisa and got a bus which takes an hr and 10 mins into the centre of Florence. We then got a taxi to our hotel as it is too far to walk with suitcases from the bus station.
Florence is very nice but i would NOT recommend staying at this hotel. We are on our way home today and are really worried about taking the bed bugs with us. Just not worth it. Much nicer hotels around.

Great location, we walked to hotel from train station. Great views of Florence from room. Room was very clean and comfortable. Interesting color scheme on each floor of hotel. Front desk staff very friendly,patient and helpful with booking tours of Accademia and Uffizi. Just around the block there was a very fine wine store and restaurant La Taverna. Breakfast was very good. Lobby had a lap top with internet connection for guests. Hotel was within easy walking distance to main attractions. Would stay there again.

We had a nice and clean room with spacious terrace (top floor). Walking distance from the river and old center. Close to car park and bus stop. Friendly and helpful staff, breakfast is basic but okay. Decent hotel, good price-quality.

Room Tip: ask for top floor with terrace opposite of street
