This hotel provided great value at the time of our stay (Easter weekend). For 75 Euros a night, it provided simple, clean accomodations within walking distance of the train station, and just steps from the Duomo. The bathrooms are located outside the bedrooms, and can be either shared or private depending on how much you pay, but were kept clean. Our room's window opened up to a view to the left of the Duomo, and one night there were even performers playing music right below our window (in front of a large crowd in the street below). Although the furniture (all wood) was a bit dated compared to other hotels we stayed at in Venice and Rome, my significant other felt it gave the place character and charm. The only downside was that the free Wifi is only accessible from the lobby, not the room, but that wasn't too inconvenient since we spent most of our stay outside seeing the sights.

stayed here for 2 nights... great location.... 10 minute walk from train station.... simple basic hotel with great view of the Duomo....
hotel itself is quiet hotel with basic room.... our room had 2 beds.... with a private bathroom across from our room..
no service and no receptionist (the guy that manages it is in the hotel for few hours in morning and afternoon)

the only bad part is the wifi... wifi reception is only good in the main front hall of the hotel... does not reach to the rooms....

other than that, the hotel is a simple place to stay with a good price

would defintely stay here again for basic hotel

On a trip with three girlfriends, we got a two-bedroom at this hotel and we were more than pleased. Arriving by train, we easily walked to the hotel (very close). The owner is very kind and helped us move our luggage into the room. Best thing about the place is the location! The windows opened out into the main square and it is literally in the middle of all the action. My only complaint (if any) would be that the wifi did not reach our hotel room but it was easily accessible form the main living-room area. Overall, exceptional rating! loved it.

The hotel was just in the middle of Florence, just 10 meters away of Piazza del Duomo. It was not a luxury hotel, it was very simple, but clean and comfortable for a short visit in this city. As in my travels is very important to invest more money on visiting museums, galleries or other attractions, I think it is unnecessary to spend a lot on money on the hotel. This hotel was low cost, and you could enjoy the fact that every place was near.

A group of 4 of us stayed here for 4 nights. We were pleasantly surprised by the setup and absolutely stunned by the gorgeous view overlooking the Duomo and Duomo square. The shared bathrooms were no big deal - 4 full baths made it easy to do what you needed to do when you needed to do it. The only issue was that there were no toiletries in the bathrooms - only some have a soap dispenser for hand washing, and no hand towels or anything to dry your hands...remembering to bring a towel along was not my strong suit :) The staff is very kind, very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and we enjoyed the authenticity of the room and building. It is a short walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station, easily doable while dragging luggage along the sidewalks.

Room Tip: We had a quadruple room which was on the corner so had two sets of windows- one looked directly onto the Duomo. Breathtaking!
