“Great location and fine room for the price”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This hotel has magnificent location. It's owners were very helpful and polite, they made us feel very nice during our stay. The room is fine, modest, but clean. We've been coming back to this hotel for 5 years, so I would recommend it.

This is a great little find really close to the station and Santa Novella Piazza. Although the room quality is average, for example the windows were a little difficult and the toilet door (to the ensuite) was weird and slidey. That guy behind the desk is great! He gave me a peach! And being us we didn't have anywhere planned after florence and were panicking as its high season. He gave us possibilities, train times, best routes to rome afterwards (my goodness I know). I'm not normally that chatty but he was great. He made us happy! Thank you guy from Mumbai that I can't remember the name of, you were fantastic!!!!

The hotel is very well located, but they treated us unpolitely. When we arrived they tried to assign us to a downgraded room with no reembursment and no explanations. We had reserved two beds and they assigned us to a one small room bed. Furthermost when they finally reassiged us to another hotel with the correct room they fought us not to reemburse for the difference. It was not a nice experience at all and we felt as if they tried to rob us. Would only recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.

Prima di tutto grazie per la Vostra recensione anche se crediamo che siate stati un po' ingiusti con noi.
Infatti abbiamo si sbagliato non facendovi trovare due letti in un camerata di 5 come da Voi prenotato ma abbiamo sotituito il tutto con una camera matrimoniale con bagno tutta per Voi.
Quando alla Vostra richiesta di due letti e non del letto matrimoniale come c'era, l'unica nostra soluzione con Firenze al compèleto, e' stata quella di proporVi l'Hostello di fronte dove in effetti avete soggiornato, facendovi poi ridare da noi 10 Euro perche' lo ritenevate di categoria inferiore.
Nessun accenno da parte Vostra del fatto che comunque ci siamo adoperati dietro le Vostre richieste e che comunque avete usufruito della nostra postazione Internet e del nostro deposio bagagli gratuitamente.
Scusate ma la critica ci e' sembrata troppo esagerata, in pratica non avete perso ne tempo ne soldi, ma se comunque avete qualche nemico da mandarci sara' il benvenuto.

My boyfriend and I were booked in the hostel across the street, Locanda Rocco, but when we showed up, they said they were overbooked and sent us across the street to Hotel Toscana. This hostel was slightly more expensive, but the other hostel covered the difference since they made the mistake. The owners of Hotel Toscana, a husband and wife, could not have been more kind to us. They even cooked us dinner one night during our stay, and we sat around for more than three hours in great conversation. They really made us feel at home, which was wonderful. The only negatives were that the wifi, although free, was very patchy in our room. Also, our bathroom door was broken and did not shut, and the water pressure in the shower was almost nonexistent. Our toilet broke once, but Leonardo (the owner) fixed it right away. There is breakfast every morning until 10am that costs 5 euros per person, and it always looked great, though we never tried it. There is a cleaning lady who is very nice, but although the signs around the hostel say she does not need access to the rooms until 11, she knocked on our door around 10 numerous times to try to clean our room, and even though we assured her we would be out in just a couple of minutes, there was one day during which she did not clean the room at all since we were not ready to leave right when she knocked on the door. Though these negatives were slightly annoying, the positives of the place completely outweighed them. The location was perfect (3 min walk from train station, less than 10 minutes to Duomo), and the people were wonderful. I highly recommend Hotel Toscana!

The hotel was clean and very convenient to the main attractions in Florence. However when I was checking out at 8 AM there was nobody in the reception area. As they had my credit card number I just left the keys. They overcharged my credit card by 28 Euros ($35) and reported to venere.com that I was a no show. Repeated emails to the hotel and venere.com went unanswered.

Great location in the center, Via del Sole 8, near the railway station and attractions. Clean, the staff was friendly and attentive. Nearby launderette. Negative - no Wi-Fi, small size rooms and especially the elevator, which can barely accommodate 2 people with luggage. The room dark, small window. Poor soundproofing. In the early morning starts to buzz on the street sweeper. For the low prices and a central location acceptable accommodation option.

The woman at the reception was absolutely wonderful and so helpful with everything I needed. The price is great and you are steps away from the train station and about 5 minutes from the ponte vecchio. The location cannot be beat. Do not expect the four seasons but the rooms are big and free wifi.
