This hotel was very quaint. The lobby was nice and the room was average with an adorable little balcony overlooking backyards in the neighbourhood. The location was a little inconvenient, only serviced by a bus stop down the street and the bus system is a little confusing. We walked often and once we mastered the bus service we were fine.
We had a woman check us in who was awesome and spoke very good English (we couldn't get our room unlocked- old fashioned keys- and she came up and helped us) but there was a man on desk later who spoke absolutely no English. Didn't understand "computer" or "internet" or any of my various gestures/signs (I speak some french so I was baffled that he wasn't getting any of it, even my imitation of typing at a keyboard). I ended up pointing at a "internet access" sign and he gestured at a computer in the corner.
We enjoyed the breakfast, it was standard for hotels with continental breakfast included in Italy. There is a pizzeria nearby called La Luna that you MUST go to and order a litre of the white house wine. It was our favourite place in all of Italy. We would definitely go back to Orcagna and already recommended it to friends who were visiting Florence.More
