“The ONLY good thing about this hotel was the location”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

Terrible room, wall to wall carpet, horrible yellow curtains .. That I never took off my sandals in the room probably says it all. The absolute worst breakfast of 11 days in Italy. Florence was fantastic, hotel rex was awful!

Good location and easy to find from the train station. Plenty of places to eat and drink around the hotel and free wi-fi good and also the Irish bar opposite also offer free wi-fi. Rooms a good size with space to store luggage, room and bathroom very clean and tidy. Breakfast good and plenty of selection. Over all good value for money for a central hotel in Florence!

This is a place where tour bathroom will be durty, the carpets will be durty, the walls of your room will be durty, the water in the bathroom will be limited and when you dare saying anything the responce you get will be <if you want your mone back sir I will give them to you and you can go somewere else to stay>.
DO NOT GO THERE BECAUSE YOU WILL DESTROY YOUR HOLLIDAYS.

We booked three nights and stayed only one. A little grubby, the staff were rude and unhelpful. Internet was not reliable. We checked out after one night and went across the street to another hotel. It is a great area to stay in and they are plenty of other decent choices in the neighborhood.

Very centrally located, walking from Firenze termini- though Florence is more about walking around. Execellent neighborhood if you are a food lover - lot of great restaurants and gelato parlours nearby. Very near to the Florence leather market. Arno river is 15-20 mins walk.
Rooms are small with only basic amenities. The room we stayed in did not have a good view at all but was clean. Breakfast served is okay and staff is nice.

Room Tip: Check the view- take road view

We stayed at this hotel in mid June for 3 nights. Location is fantastic and an easy 5 minute walk from the train station. The receptionist was fantastic upon our arrival and he gave us some great tips as well as helped us book last minute bus trips for the next 2 days. Room and bathrom were small and clean. Bed was 2 large singles pushed together, which was a little annoying. Breakfast was basic but good and was filling. Only critisism was that it was noisy at night due to the Irish pub that is directly opposite the hotel entrance. Had to have both lots of windows closed to dull the noise. We would stay again, just ask for a room in a quiter spot.

Reviewed 13 June 2012

This place is nothing more than a hostel, though you do get your own (moldy) bathroom. It is a 1.5 star hotel at best, and definitely not the 3 stars it claims to be. The first room we stayed in was not only outdated, but full of flies and black MOLD. They let us move the following day, but the new room, though an improvement, also had mold. Also, once we flushed the toilet it wouldn't stop running all night. It was the middle of the night and they tried to help fix it, but they couldn't. I really think they need to shut this place down and renovate because the black mold is just a safety hazzard. I also didn't appreciate having to leave my key with the reception so "they could know who was not in their room" (why do you need to know this?). It was in a very convenient location and the staff was fairly friendly, but I'd stay away.
