We stayed for five nights at Room Mate Isabella in October 2013. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to Room Mate Isabella.
Hotel: As many reviews state, you have to climb some stairs to get to the hotel's elevator. There is a bell at the front door, and you can easily ring the concierge to carry your bags up. Room Mate Isabella makes the stairs as easy on their guests as possible! All of the common areas are charming and very clean. The location is very convenient and very safe. It's walking distance to all the main sites in Florence and less than 10 minutes walking to the train station.
Room: We stayed in a Deluxe Double, and it was lovely. The room has been recently renovated but still has lots of charm and character. We had a pair of floor-to-ceiling windows, which seemed more like a balcony, with a nice little view of the street. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable.
Bathroom: The bathroom was spacious and extremely clean. Our only issues with the bathroom were the small-ish shower and lack of counter space, but these are nit-picky concerns.
Service: The employees were very friendly and helpful. We even had a couple of unusual issues, such as a plumbing issue and that we accidentally broke a glass shelf in our bathroom, and the service was still prompt and friendly. They kindly arranged tickets for the Accademia for us.
Breakfast: Breakfast was great. They had made-to-order eggs in addition to fresh continental fare. The service at breakfast was also very friendly.
Overall, Room Mate Isabella was a great stay. I'd happily stay there again and highly recommend it.
