Reviewed 15 August 2011

Our family of 4 stayed at this hotel in the month of May. The hotel is very close to the main train station. It is situated on a quiet street. Our room was very clean, spacious, air-conditioned and comfortable. The breakfast was adequate. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is ideal for tourists. Very close to the station and walking distance from all the tourist spots.

The location of the hotel was great. Very close to the Florence SMN station, and also a quick walk to the city and all its main attractions. The staff is friendly and helpful.
But our room was adjacent to the hotel’s guest toilet. The constant flushing and the buses going past outside made the room very noisy.
The double bed was in fact two single beds pushed together which was very uncomfortable to sleep on. The bathroom was dirty, and had mould on just about every corner. They charge €2 for a towel, which was the first time I’ve ever seen that! Internet is €5 for an hour.
It is a cheap hotel, and the only positive is that it is easy to get around Florence from this hotel, but the noise and the uncomfortable bed was not worth it.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel at the end of September 2010.
Although we are unpretentious travelers this hotel was worth than we had expected.
The building itself was old (not ancient but old – it’s really different) and had a respective unpleasant smell. The same about the hotel itself and the room which were very uncomfortable. The blanket was not clean but the bedclothes were fine. We were lucky to stay there for two nights only.
The room had a sink and a shower separated from rest of the room with a curtain. The toiled was shared with two or three other rooms but nevertheless always vacant and clean. One could her even the quietest sound so you’d better use earplugs unless you are a sound sleeper.
The location was not bad – three minutes walk from S.M.Novela Railway Station, five minutes to Duomo. There was a supermarket around the corner and lots of cafes open almost any time. So you’ll never die of hunger. San Lorenzo market is also near.
The breakfast was surprisingly good. It was a buffet offering toasts, tasty croissants, cheese and sliced ham, butter and jam/nutella, fruit (grapes, pears and apples), cornflakes and milk, boiled eggs, biscuits, tea and coffee from a coffee machine.
Nevertheless I would not recommend this hotel to anyone but for those who are on a tight budget (the price was 55 Euros per night) and are not intending to spend much time in the room.

this hotel is in a great location its very clean if somewhat dated, my only complaint is the noise , i went to bed at 11.30pm and the hotel reception staff were chattering away loudly and talking on their mobile phones eventually at 1 am i went out and asked them to be quiet, which they were, eventually i fell asleep to be woken by the bin men in the street below at 3am! again i fell asleep but at 6.30 am the staff in the hotel got to work and were extremely noisy , shouting banging doors etc this went on till i got up at 9am , needless to say i was really tired the next day, reception staff were polite but the level of noise is ridiculous

Very well located hotel convenient to the station and all Florence attractions. We stayed two nights; ate breakfast both mornings served by a friendly lady. The room was basic but comfortable, clean and no problems. Reception staff were also friendly, and we enjoyed the antique elevator when going up and down! We would stay here again.

Although an old building, room was clean. Interior outdated, but we had a spacious room with en suite bathroom - everything we need. Very friendly staff. Breakfast good. Location very near old centre of town. Thanks for a lovely stay.
