“Clean / Good location”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

The staff were very helpful, kind and friendly. Excellent location, 5 min to train station, 5 min to main tourist locations. The bathroom was clean, shower was nice. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, air condition was ok. We payed 80 euros for three. I recommend this hotel regarding to benefit cost analisys.

Hotel Sole was the best hotel we stayed in during our tour through Italy. The location is excellent - very close to all main sights of Florence, staff is very helpfull and nice, everything was amazingly clean, rooms with new furniture, good working AC and the location is just perfect. We will definately recommend this place to all of our friends.

The location is very good, near the train station and major tourist destination. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bathroom is white with glass shower. Room with air conditioning and free wifi. The service and reception were excellent. Definitely recommend it!

Reviewed 25 December 2009

We have stayed in budget hotels before and have realistic expectations and we found this hotel to be substandard. The entire building reeked of sewage and at times the smell was very strong in our room. When mentioned to the staff they simply denied smelling anything. The water was turned off (not just low water pressure but actually turned off) several times a day with no advance warning so you might be in the middle of your shower and off goes the water! Again, the staff was utterly unresponsive when this was mentioned. The bed was extraordinarily uncomfortable making it diffcult to sleep well. The ceiling light fixture in our bathroom fell off the ceiling (not caused in any way by me) narrowly missing hitting me. The light bulb dangled from wires in the ceiling for the next three days-no effort to repair it. When we checked out the staff tried to blame us for "damages" and an argument ensued. They advertised internet access however there was none. In my opinion this place is not worth even the inexpensive rates. Hotel Toscana is in same building and run by same people so many of the same issues would apply there too.
