“Strange”
Reviewed 22 May 2011

Not recommende for those with heavy bags or any disabilty. Dark, steep steps to walk up. Our room was directly over a noisy restuarant. When you leave the property you are required to leave your key with the manager and you will be scolded if you don't. One large towel is provided, no hand towels or washcloths provided. The one towel is not changed out daily. Bare minimum of toilet paper is provided. Very small shower is difficult to get in and out of. They require cash payment for the stay.

This one was the accommodation find of our trip! Don't let the 2-3 flights of stairs put you off staying here. The rooms are large, very clean and tastefully decorated. Separate (but very clean) shared bathroom. Lovely staff. One minute walk from the Duomo, right in the centre of Florence. Sadly we only stayed here one night - this is where we will stay next time we find ourselves in Florence.

The hotel is located just a block away from the dome. You cannot find better location for the price we paid (£40 per night). All the main attractions are just a few minutes walk and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby.

The room was clean and spacious and fairly quiet since our room was not facing the street. The bathroom was private but outside the room. Not an issue but the fact that you have to leave the room and unlock the bathroom can be a bit of bother.

There is a curfew of 1am - this is because the lady that runs the place stays at the front desk the whole day. Also, you must leave your keys with her. So if you're planning late nights, this not the place to stay.

The hotel is very simple, they don't serve food and there is no internet access. The staff is very friendly and helpful and I had a lovely time there.

A simple hotel with great value to stay in the heart of Florence.
From the hotel you can easily walk anywhere, so great location, next to the Duomo.
Nice, clean room, bright and spacious. Big and comfortable bed.
The woman at the reception was great, very helpful, polite, smiling. She gave us a map of the city as soon as we arrived.
The bathroom was just outside the room, but it wasn't a problem for us. It was big and clean, and towels and amenities were provided.
There is a curfew at 1 and you have to leave your key before going out, but you know all of this in advance. Oh, and no internet.
There are great places around there for breakfast.
Great stay, no complaints at all, thank you very much for your service.

During our stay the owner was MORE than helpful. She was pleasant, courteous and gave us wonderful tips during our stay in Florence. We were in a street facing room -and didn't really find the noise to be a problem. The rooms are very clean and large. The location to the Duomo and the train station was fantastic. Train station was about a 10 minute walk, Duomo - less than 1 minute!

I've read several reviews and I have to say, I think you get what you put out in terms of respect. We were pleasant and respectful, and got the same in return. The booking clearly states the rules of the Pension [leaving your keys when you leave, etc.] so if you don't agree with it, don't stay.

We would definitely choose this location again for our next stay in Florence.

to start this hotel was not very hard to find. and its only 10 min from the train station.
the staff where very friendly and gave us a free map. she answered all our questions and recommended places all over the city. we requested a room with a private bathroom and one facing the courtyard and it was very quiet, until 7am when the giant bell tower rang every morning. the bathroom was new and very clean. the room was elegant, immaculate and large.
there was no wifi. and no TV in our room. the curfew is 1am. there is no breakfast.
the hotel is right on the main strip in florance. the street is full of shops and restaurants, and a minute up the road is a large market offering all sorts of excellent quality leather goods at affordable prices. feel free to haggle.

We got here based on the rating of this Hotel/B&B.
The first thing we understood was that B&B means Bed & Bathroom, not Bed&Breakfast. The unfriendly woman hiding behind a fake smile made it very clear to us that service here is next to zero.
We had to give her our keys each time we left the rooms. And when we asked her to leave our luggage in the hotel until 11 (one hour after checkout), she firmly refused.
The hotel is located above a restaurant in a very noisy street, no Air-conditioning, so sleeping there in August was very bad.
This is basically dorms with misleading trip adviser reviews.
