Staying at Residence La Repubblica in Florence, Italy was probably the worst hotel stay we've ever had. There were two main problems:
1) The room was terribly noisy for multiple reasons: The Piazza La Republicca is very noisy with a band and a DJ playing music well into the night - until 1-2AM. Despite closing all of the windows and shades, it didn't make a difference, it is quite noisy in the room. If that isn't enough for you, the elevator (which is used throughout the night) is also very noisy, it shakes the room -- there is no escaping the noise in this hotel.
2) The room wasn't maintained, in a 5 night stay we didn't get a single cleaning. When we called the desk about it they said "you will get one cleaning during your stay, I don't know when". We had to ask for fresh towels, they couldn't bring us any that evening and that we'd have to wait until the morning. In the morning, we called and they said fresh towels would come "when the maid gets there". We did get fresh towels once, but did not get a single cleaning.
Do not stay at this B&B/Hotel - totally not worth it.More
