“Great Central Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

This hotel is within walking distance from almost everywhere in Florence. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Our room was a little on the small side and our private bathroom was not ensuite We were travelling with two other couples and both of their rooms were larger and did have ensuite. There was no air conditioning, but there was a huge window looking into a lovely courtyard with a garden and the room had a decent fan. (Might be warm in the middle of the summer but was okay at the end of September.) We found the room nice and quiet even though you are right in the middle of the city. You feel secure staying here. You needed to be buzzed in and they have closed circuit t.v. so by the time you get to the top of the stairs someone is there to hand you your room key. There is a 1 a.m. curfew but that was more than late enough for us. The value is excellent. We found Florence very expensive, but the Canada was a big exception here. We had read revues before booking and a number of them talked about all the stairs. We had just come from Cinque Terre, trust me these stairs aren't that bad.

Room Tip: When you are booking ask for an ensuite and courtyard view.

The owner was extremely attentive and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and this made us feel right at home! The hotel was very clean and the facilities were nice. Although it didnt say on the website the hotel also offered free wifi which was very fast and convenient. Excellent location right in the heart of Florence, close to the markets and squares. Some people might find the 1am curfew restrictive as Florence is such a lively city but it was well advertised so we knew in advance. We would recommend this hotel and would stay there again, thank you for a great stay!

A very comfortable, spotlessly clean, friendly B&B in the centre of Florence. Five minutes' walk from the main station (Santa Maria Novella) and less than 100m from the cathedral. The 'signora' (owner/manager) was so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Hair-dryer was available to borrow. Lovely, huge, fluffy towels. Very comfy bed. I had exclusive use of a shower room, but it was not en-suite. It was right next door to my room.

The room temperature was fine, though the weather wasn't that hot when I was there. The room had a fan, which probably would have been needed, had it been hotter.

I didn't sleep very well the second night as the person in the next room snored very loudly. However, this could happen anywhere. In the morning, I could hear the cathedral bells - no complaints about that; they were wonderful. The Pensione is the second floor, so there was no noise from the street.

Can't recommend Pensione Canada highly enough for the price and location. I would be very happy to go back there.

Here a one star place that offers very clean rooms a few meters away from the duomo. The big advantage is that is on the second floor facing a very quiet yard. No noise at night! Rooms freshly repainted, bathroom tilled in a simple yet modern way.
Good place to stay for a few nights!
let's not forget the host, who look after you and make sure to answer all the questions you may have about Florence!

This place is very simple but clean and in a great location. Right smack in a middle of downtown Florence! The only complain we had is that there is no A/C and we traveled in July and it was HOT! I do love the heat, but when you try to get a good night sleep it becomes a bit of a problem.

Hotel Canada is a really a pensione, not a hotel. The rooms are spotless and mine was rather large. The owner was very gracious and sought to make my stay comfortable. She's always around, so you definitely feel looked after. I had a room with a shared bathroom, which was down the hall and across the common room. My room did have a sink, however. The shared bathroom was also very clean.

The location of this pensione was terrific. Just steps from the Piazza del Duomo, you hear the bells in the morning (so if you are a late sleeper, beware). It's also a short walk from all the major sights and a ten minute or so walk to the train station. You can't feel more "in the mix" at this spot.

Unfortunately, there is no air conditioning, and leaving the window open to get a nice Florence breeze was hampered by a lot of street noise, especially starting early in the morning. On hot Italian nights, the lack of air-con leaves one feeling a bit sticky. If you can, ask for a room on the other side of the building. There was wi-fi, but it didn't work well in my room and I had to either sit by the propped open door, or move to the common area.
