We stayed here recently for 7 days, in room 303 which has a small balcony. We found the room small, but it was nice to have some outside space. The hotel is a good walk to the major Florence attractions, but we enjoyed walking and it was in a relatively quiet area compared to other hotels around the city. The breakfast was good - pastries, local meats and cheeses, yogurt and hard boiled eggs. It was also nice to have some real coffee after our week prior with only espresso. The hotel was well kept and the rooms were quiet with good soundproofing. There is also a small fridge with some items you can purchase, but we emptied some out to use it for our own purchases instead. The hotel staff is nice and also very professional, and they speak english well, which made it easy to communicate with them. There were however, a few downsides. First, the bed was pretty uncomfortable, but we walked so much and were tired by the end of the a so it didn't really matter. Second, our bathroom shower head was disappointing, and the floor got awfully wet while showering, even with the door closed. Because of this, our bathroom had a constant musty smell, even if we kept our fan on. Third, the cleaning staff essentially ignored our do not disturb sign we left up one day after doing some laundry by hand, and we had a makeshift clothesline up that blocked some of the entrance. Fourth, it was nice to have access to internet for free, but our username and password for the wifi would randomly stop working, saying invalid username, and we had to request new ones every day or second day. Finally, the hotel claims to be environmentally conscience, and has a sign saying that they wil only change the towels when we let them know by placing them in the sink. However, the bedding and towels were changed every single day we stayed, which was a little excessive and definitely NOT environmentally friendly. All in all, a decent place to stay, as advertised, and we would consider staying again if we make it back to Florence.
