I stayed at Hotel Londra inn Florence with a friend last week (13/07/14 - 19/07/14) for an art course. The rooms were extremely reasonably priced for a four star hotel: they were clean and pleasant (although quite basic and bare).
Initially, we were put in a room without a balcony and with such a poor view of the back of other ugly hotels and roofing we asked to move. Unfortunately, there was no space to move for the first night, but the staff were very helpful and allowed us to move the next morning. Our new room had a balcony facing the street. It still was not the typical "florentine" beautiful view but it was so much better and it was so nice to sit there for sunset. Unfortunately, there was no balcony furniture, but we just took a bedside table and two chairs and left them outside.
We missed breakfast four times because it needs at 10.00pm so not ideal if you are going out the night before or just not an early riser. The staff were friendly.
My main disappointment with Londra is that it simply does not live up to the pictures or description. The garden is SO much smaller than you would expect. The "gym" is pathetic and the sauna broke whilst we were using it. It seems about 20 years old. Also, the location really wasn't great with a 15 minute walk into town which was inconvenient. It is the wrong side of the train station and can get dodgy at night.
Overall, it is a reasonably priced hotel and basic and clean. The rooms were soundproofed as well. However, I really question if it should be four stars..
