“Right in the centre, basic rooms at the right price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2011

You get what it says on the tin - it's in an unbeatable location, the building is genuinely old, the staff were friendly and helpful enough without being effusive, the room we had was fairly basic, but very clean and as we'd expected for the price - shame we got a room with 4 single beds for a romantic holiday though and they didn't have any others for us to move to! 30 second walk to the Duomo, 10/15 minutes walk from the train station depending on how heavy your bags are. Surprisingly quiet for such a central location, but take on board it is not a peaceful countryside location!

This was my second stay at this location. They are on the 2nd level of this building and there is another hotel (Aldini) on the 3rd floor. The location is exceptional to explore the city by foot; next door to the Duomo, a few steps (300m) to Palazzo & Piazza della Signoria, 70m to Piazza della Repubblica, 280m to Ponte Vecchio, 700m to the main train station. I walked everywhere & strongly suggest the 4-wheel suitcase models! The infrastructure (no frills elevator, big room, private bath, shutters, breakfast) of the hotel remains the same as 4-5 years ago. However, the customer service has taken a huge dive in the wrong direction. Although I expected that most of the staff speak limited English, I was surprised to experience the night/weekend manager to only speak it during checkout time & when talking about possible additional charges. Next time, I will book a different hotel, mostly based of my experience during checkout.

My wife and I stayed five nights, a long time according to the innkeeper. For us the location was spectacular. We were an easy walk to everything on our list. The staff was friendly and helpful the continental breakfast was medeocre but edible, except the coffee which was quite good. Bathroom was small but clean and functional. The room was large and spare.

The street noise was considerable. Good ear plugs are essential. The hotel has done a pretty good job with shutters and windows but Florence is loud at times.

Tbs beds were firm, and the pillows almost as firm. If you like firm, you will love this place.

In short, an adequate, safe, clean and exceptionally convienient hotel.

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the years. It was once owned by a nice family. That apparently has changed since our last stay. The location is great and the price is right. However if you are there in the summer beware as there is no AC until after 10PM. Our water in the shower didn't work. Bed spreads were dirty. The breakfast is the worst I've ever had at a hotel in Italy. Mosquitos are often a problem because of the lack of AC. It is also a noisy location-I staid once during a world cup final where there were riots out by the Duomo. The service is terrible too, it took us quite a long time to check in and out because the manager was chatting on the phone. Essentially this place is a hostel. The rooms are big. If you are in Italy outside of the summer and you want to save some money this place would be for you.

Fantastic location outside the duomo. So close in fact that the bells and ambulances from the nearby hospital can be clearly heard.  Our room was very comfortablly sized with shower/bath and tv. Breakfast was typically italian but very decent nonetheless. Hotel is right in the town centre easy access to shops, restaurants and all the main sites. Staff were very pleasant and courteous.  Free Internet access was a bonus. If you're looking a good hotel with a great location and don't fancy paying prices through the roof I recommend this hotel.

Spent one night at this hotel and it just happened to be the night of Florence's Primo de Maggio celebration. Although this was an interesting cultural experience for our family, it also made sleep rather difficult. The location is excellant to get around to all sights and it was about a 20 min. walk to the SMN train station. Can't complain about the breakfast, same as most places we stayed in Italy. At least you could sit down to eat. The rooms were clean and basic, and we were able to get internet connection in our room. Reasonable value for your money. Good if you are only staying a few nights.
