Reviewed 27 September 2013

There is nothing fantastic about this hotel except for the location and at the same time nothing much wrong with this.
Room was spacious and the bathrooms were clean. Staff were helpful although they didn't find my reservation and kept me waiting in the lobby for an hour. Internet was not working and they kept on saying that I might have booked in a different hotel of theirs from which they spun off. Ridiculous!!! Internet didn't work throughout the two days I stayed there. My rating is three and half but since there is no rating of three and half and I didn't have any other inconvenience and didn't really had to use the internet, I give it a four.

The hotel is in a great location. That is the one big advantage of staying here. It is however shabby and run down, and up a couple of flights of stairs, as mentioned in several other reviews. The AC barely worked, not really cooling the air, but only moving it slighly. My wife would not walk on the carpeting without her shoes. Light sleepers may havea problem with the noise from the street. The staff was friendly and helpful, in spite of being overwhelmed at times. I wouldn't stay there again, orrecommend it, as there are many other hotel choices nearby.

We had the three person room which was clean and spacious. The location is the best part since its a few minutes walk from the duomo and the train/bus station. The only minor advice is to make sure your luggage isn't too heavy since theres no lift. Overall we had a great stay for three nights and its perfect for people who wants somewhere practical!

Nice and clean hotel in an excellent location. For five euros more you can get a good satisfy breakfast.
However, the major weakness was the old spring mattress that I felt it every spring and a spring.
so the sleep quality wasn`t one of the best one.

We stayed at Hotel Deco for two nights in August 2013. The hotel is in a fantastic location (five minute walk from Piazza del Duomo, and Santa Maria Novella train station), although it can be a little hard to spot, as the entrance is just a doorway with a small sign above. The hotel starts on the third floor, and there is no lift, so I wouldn’t advise staying here if you have mobility problems.

The décor in the hotel is a little dated, and could do with an upgrade throughout. The door to our room was a little stiff, and the paint on the walls had faded a little, but it was clean and perfectly adequate for our needs. The room and bathroom was larger than we expected, and our room had a view of the Campanile from the large windows. The bed was a little tired and well-worn, but comfortable enough for a two-night stay.

Breakfast was basic, but perfectly acceptable for a two-star continental. The breakfast area can get a little cramped and congested when it’s busy, but this is to be expected. The WiFi in the breakfast area is great, although it doesn’t stretch to cover the rooms (this was explained to us at check-in, and wasn’t a problem).

Overall, this is a nice little hotel, and better than we expected for one of the cheapest in Florence. We would stay here again.

We stayed her for two nights in very hot August. The location is the key selling point of this hotel as it is minutes walk from the station and walking distance of the sights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast were very good. The room was decent enough when you want somewhere to sleep. Sadly the air con was broken which made the room intolerably hot but staff were deeply apologetic and offered us free drinks to make up for it. It is ideal if you want a cheap, well-located hotel for a few nights.

Yes it's basic, very basic. Big cases are a no no... We had to carry ours up 5 flights of stairs! Our room was spacious and clean but dated and a bit shabby. We didn't have a real window they were at least 10 feet off the ground and very small so I think we avoided the street noise people complained about. Hotel seemed secure and staff were friendly enough... Good price for location right between the main square and train station... Less than 5 minute walk to each! To be honest I would look elsewhere if I returned to Florence but if you've book already nothing to worry about!
