Just completed a 10 day vacation to Italy. We stayed at the Casa Billi in Florence for three nights. We were looking for basic accommodations, and we found it. Casa Billi is one of several "hotels" in the building. It was very convenient to the train station, about two blocks away. When we arrived, we buzzed the proprietor. They let us in, and told us to walk up the the second floor. REMEMBER, in Europe, they start counting at "0". So, for us Americans, 2nd floor is really three flights up. So, if you're carrying heavy suitcases, you'll have to lug them up three flights of stairs, even though there is an elevator. Casa Billi does not have access to the elevator. Why not, I don't really know. The room was very basic, but Florence is expensive, and we paid 70 Euros per night. The room was clean. The bed was good. Pillows at hotels never are good for me. Our room was down a long hallway, which was fine with me, overlooking an inner courtyard. The bathroom was toilet, shower, and sink all in one room. So, when you shower, everything gets wet! Make sure you move the toilet paper out of the room before you start. Water pressure was good! Fixtures looked pretty new and clean. TV was Italian, only. All in all, it was a good, inexpensive (compared to other Florence hotels) place to sleep. Wireless, which was provided by the hotel did not work in my room. But, fortunately, another hotspot was open, and worked in our room. If on a budget, this place works!
