This hotel was very difficult to find-even with GPS. There is a small sign on the side of the building and I don't believe the actual door is marked. (It is right beside the little outdoor cafe). Once we found the hotel, the reception was friendly and spoke English well.

We got our key (rather large and old fashioned- can leave at reception when you go out) and headed up the elevator to the 6th floor. Our room ended up being in the attic (up a very small spiral staircase). The door to the room was also very narrow- it could cause problems if you have bulky luggage. The room we had was for 3 ppl- 1 double bed and another single bed on the other side. The room was clean but quite old. There was a window that looked out over the rooftops. The bathroom was clean, however the shower is just the shower head and a curtain that can be pulled to block off the toilet.
This room had an air conditioner (thank goodness!) however we were told this is the only room with a/c, I don't think we would have been able to stay here if we didn't have a/c as it was very HOT during our stay!

The terrace on the 6th floor (for all the guests) has a great view of the Duomo and across Florence. The rooms from this floor have doors that open right onto the terrace. There is not a lot of seating up there either.

There is a tv room with some old couches on the same floor as the breakfast room. This is also where your bags are stored if you aren't leaving til later in the day. Not secured.

The breakfast (included) was not great. The juice machine has 2 kinds of juice (very sweet orange drink and grapefruit). The breakfast is bread rolls (not overly fresh) with jam and a little package of cookies and a package of cracker/toast? It comes with coffee (pretty good) or hot chocolate I beleive. The staff is generally run off their feet here and are not that friendly, also there is no info about what to do there. Just sit down and hopefully someone will come over in time.

Our experience with this place was average, I wouldn't pay very much for this hotel and I would ask for the attic room if you need a/c. The location, however, is very good- you can walk to the train station and to almost all attractions in Florence.

Room Tip: Only the attic room has A/C!

The room is definitely not your North American room, but hey you’re in Florence. Need I say more? There is a great roof top terrace where there are definitely some photo opportunities especially of the Duomo at night. The hotel is located near the train station (about a 5 minute walk with 2 suitcases so don’t waste your Euro on a cab) and is honestly centrally located from everything. The room has a bed, a small desk, wardrobe and tiny tiny bathroom. But the breakfast is included which is good and the room was clean. If you’re the type that likes to say in your room and watch TV when away then this isn’t the hotel for you. But if you want to get out and experience Florence then this hotel is just fine but they do sweep the streets at 4 in the morning. PS. The restaurant downstairs from the hotel is called Robiglio is EXCELLENT.

Room Tip: The hotel is fairly small but try to get a higher room

The rooftop terrace would make EM Forster wilt! The view across to the Duomo took the breath away of every person I watched coming out for a look! This is a two star hotel ideally placed in the centre of the city - minutes away from ANYTHING! I stayed here in 1991 and it is now a much more substantial business. The room was clean and changed everyday - the bed was really comfortable (but that might just be me!) - however no AC meant keeping the window open and all that means for noise in the centre of a busy Italian city - most of the night. There is no TV or wifi and the toilet and shower facilities are basic (2 star after all) and the breakfast included the worst coffee in Italy. There is little doubt that I would happily revisit Florence from here - It is so convenient... even for a nice GROM gelato!

Safe, clean and threadbare hotel. Little worn around the edges. Rates are very reasonable for Florence. You are right in the middle of things. Hotel is not airconditioned. Using the fan and keeping the windows open takes the edge off but.... streets are loud with outdoor nightclubs, street sweepers and street performers until 1:00 am. Around 6:00 am the trash and recycling pick up starts followed shortly by the pastry delivery trucks. Probably much more comfortable when it is cooler and you can leave the windows closed. Be aware the breakfast included with the room is limited to coffee, tea, juice, rolls, butter and jams. We spent an addtional night in apartments they rent a few blocks away to have air conditioning. They cost more but were much more comfortable and quiet.

I staied overnight at the medici, got extremely lucky since i had a room at top floor, facing the duomo cupola for 20 euros. Given this i can hardly ask for more, the room is minimal, old fashioned, with a small basin, more than being dirty it all looks old. you hear everything the neighbours do... But i sleep tight, even had breakfast, though not memorable: honestly could i think of a better deal in the hub of Florence? Not at all.
