Service very friendly. No wifi or breakfast, but very good location in the center of the city near Duomo. Very good prices and very clean. Ask for a room with backyard windows (front windows are noisy).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows to the calm backyard

The location is superb, only a minute from the Duomo. The hotel is extremely clean, probably the cleanest bathroom in all of Europe! The rooms are nice and big. We had a shared bathroom but our room had a private shower and a bidet. Our room also had a small armoire and a small table with two chairs. We never ran into any problems with the shared bathroom. I went in September when it wasn't that hot at night so the fan was all we needed. As people mentioned you have to turn in your key every time you leave which we thought was weird and were turned off a bit but then when we stayed in Venice the hotel there had the same process so maybe its just what the smaller hotels do... The lady was easy to find. We never waited more than a few minutes to turn in the key. She was quick in getting you buzzed into the building. The street below is a bit loud so keep that in mind if you like to sleep with the window open. We felt safe walking back to our hotel in the evening (10-11pm ish ). She also has a 1am curfew which might be a problem for some. There is no wi-fi which we really needed. You also have to pay in cash. There's no tv. The price was excellent. We booked over expedia.

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel with a friend and we had an absolutely fantastic time. The staff was extremely friendly - and multilingual, our room was lovely and clean, the bathroom we shared with other 2 rooms was always very clean and neat. It is a 10-15min walk from the station, just around the corner from the cathedral square and so central we could reach everything on foot. In addition to this, the landlady was just great and advised us on the best places to eat out in Florence to avoid the touristic traps. A really nice place where I will return next time I'm in Florence.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay. The host was friendly with good advice. The room was small as was the shared bathroom but that was what we were expecting. The location was terrific on a pedestrian street near the duomo . Lots of stairs but it is Europe! Very clean. Having to leave the key everytime we left the hotel was slightly inconvenient.

Staff at hotel very happy and smiley, made us feel welcome. Rooms are very big and clean and we had view of a main shopping street (nice to ppl watch) and a little table for picnics. No wifi but we didn't miss it. We stayed just two nights and my main negative was that in peak summertime the rooms are far too hot and sauna like without air conditioning and just a fan. I needed a damp cold towel on me to sleep. Otherwise I wouldn't hesitate to book again in a cooler season.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Canada for 3 nights whilst touring Italy. We chose this hotel as the location could not be beaten for the price. You are around the corner from the Duomo and 3 minutes from the Uffizi Gallery. Great shopping is all around you also.
The positives about the hotel are that for the price it's good. It's clean, quiet and the owner obviously cares about the service you receive. We had a room with a shared bathroom and it was fine.
The negatives are that you do need to go up 2 big flights of stairs - when you have luggage this isn't the best - but no big problem. The main negative is that whilst the owner is great she has a policy that every time you leave you have to hand in the key to the room. Whilst this sounds like a minor thing, in reality it means you have to go and find her every time you leave to hand in the key. You also need to buzz up to her when you want to come in to the hotel, which can leave you standing outside. It just felt a bit controlled and also made us think twice about popping back to the hotel during the day.
