Reviewed 21 October 2013

Just off the Piazza della Stazione, a stones throw from the St. Maria Novela train station. Its classified as a bed and breakfast, situated on the third floor of a building, accessed by wide stone stairs and one of those wooden/metal lifts you see in old movies. Feels more like somebody's private residence and while the property has seen better days it's very quaint and authentic, with high ceilings and bulky cast iron radiators with levers. Room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was ok with decent fresh coffee made to order. Very friendly oldish couple (owners?). Very convenient to all the sights and shopping and a million miles away from the ubiquity of most modern budget hotels. Might not be to everyones taste but we enjoyed it.

What a wonderful little place to stay in Florence...room was small, but very clean. opening the balcony doors let the outside in...very quaint....the breakfast was good for a start to your day.
Would stay again if I return to Florence...

Great location, close to St. Maria Novela station and in walking distance to other attractions such as San Lorenzo's market, the Duomo and Piazza della Signore. Our room was quite spacey, clean and quiet, the bathroom was small but nevertheless well-equipped. They provided wifi, connection was ok. The breakfast was quite good. We stayed for 3 nights, it was well worth the rates offered, as for us just need a clean room to sleep with limited (but adequate facilities such as a small save and hair dryer in the en suite bathroom). The old-fashioned lift in the building might be quite small, only fitted 2 persons with medium luggage each most of the times, so this might not be popular with family with children, but for us traveling as couples, it was such a great experience. The owners were kind and quite attentive as well. Should we ever revisit Firenze, we'd definitely choose Joli once again.

We liked this one. In a quiet street directly opposite and parallel to main entrance of Firenze SMN railway station. Easy walk throughout the city sights and the hotel recommend we take number 13 bus from outside station to the Piazza Michaelangelo for a great view of the city. Great tip. Breakfast excellent and like made in your mum's front room. We nipped out to the little balcony every morning with our coffee and enjoyed the red roofs and wakening city. Good rooms. Restful and you need that in this city.

The location was perfect for our interRailing trip witj our 2 boys. A lovely welcome, and the staff were all really helpful and friendly. Nice sized room and bathroom, as was quiet on the side of the building. Breakfast was good, and fresh capuccino - lovely looking out of the opened balcony doors onto the surrounding hills. Better than a chain hotel anyday.

Just around the next street from the Santa Maria Nuovella train station and 2 sts from great selection of trattorias and bars.
The little euro lift was fun, the couple running it were very hospitable, even making us an expresso late after a long day exploring! The room was good size with old style high ceilings, shower needed a scrub, wifi available and a little slow but could log into hotel next door from the breakfast room!
The value was exceptional considering the location close to everything and yet one street away from noise!
A great first time in Florence (walkabout tours - Cinque Terre was amazing )
