Firstly I must say a big thank you to Mr Roberto who was kind enough to make room for us on short notice when my son was sick. He went above and beyond making sure my son was ok even getting panadol for us when he had a fever.

The hostel is very cosy and modern. It has fantastic wifi everywhere, a nice little kitchen with a big refrigerator and is super clean. For the small price to pay this is a bargain in a central location of Florence. It takes about 10 mins to the main railway station & duomo.Mr Roberto's wife Paola gave us great advice to visit Santa Maria old Pharmacy/Dispensary, it has some of the most amazing perfumes and the building is beautiful..

Excuse me for the mistakes, but English is not my native language.
We stayed at the Albergo Bencidormi for 4 nights during our trip to Italy by car.The hotel has a perfect location. Calm and quiet place and everything is very close - the railway station, the Duomo, the central market - 5 minutes’ walk, Uffizi Gallery - 15 minutes’ walk.

Clean rooms, comfortable beds.
A small kitchen with a refrigerator, electric stove, kettle, coffee machine, microwave, and all necessary utensils. Free tea and coffee. Safety garage at distance of 150 m from the hotel (for extra charge).

But the most important thing - the kindness and hospitality of the hotel owner Roberto.

Roberto concerns guests of the hotel as if they are him friends and it's very nice.

For example, I could not drive my car to the hotel’s door and Roberto himself met us and assisted with our luggage.
Great thanks to Roberto for his constant willingness to help in any question.

Summary. The best value for money.

It is strongly recommended for all travelers and tourists.

Close to the center, kind personal, nice kitchen, clean room and bathroom, free internet. I dont know what to add, its just super accommodation in the center of the Florence. It has smaller rooms and stairs to 1st floor, so I wouldnt recommend it to fatty people.

Very good location situated just 5 mins off Firenze Train Station. Easy to find and there's some restaurants with decent value for money located just along the streets. However do note that you need to carry your luggage up some steps to reach first floor.
Owner took efforts to maintain cleanliness of the room. Bright colors and well equipped kitchen too from my perspective.
Excellent value for my stay there.

What a great place to stay. From the moment we arrived and Roberto helped us with our luggage to when we left. We only left Florence late in the evening and no problem Roberto let us leave out bags and gave us a key to come and pick them up. Super clean and cheerful rooms. Simple but functional. Nice shower entrance after lots of poky ones in Italy. Heated towel rails so we could wash and dry our socks no problem. How great to have use of a kitchen and fridge - always spotless and tea / coffee provided. good wifi and a laptop in the passage area to use. Jvery close and easy to find fromt he amin train station and walking distance to everything in Florence - very close to central market and supermarkey around the corner and lots of places to eat. Best all round hotel on our trip ( and we were happy with our other choices).

This "albergo" is very close to the Santa Maria Novella train station and the Central Market, as well as the Academia, San Lorenzo church and a few blocks from the Duomo. Our double bed was very comfortable, there is air conditioning and a computer in the hall that customers can use, besides wifi being available. Customers have the use of a kitchen, microwave, cutlery and dishes and there is a little counter and stools where you can eat. You can leave a small bit of food in the shared refrigerator. The location was perfect and I would certainly return.

Simple and completely comfortable hotel. Wonderful to have the shared kitchen to use when needed but privacy of own rooms and bathroom. It is quiet yet only five mins walk from the station and ten mins walk from the beautiful Duomo. It is spotlessly clean and the reception lady (sorry I can't remember her name) is so exceptionally helpful. She booked us tickets to the Uffici and to a restaurant we wanted to visit.

Thanks also to Roberto for posting my phone to me at no extra cost when I was an idiot and left it behind.
