There is no staff at afternoons and nights. That´s why we could do nothing when our neighbours were making a party at midnight, drinking, laughing and shouting. All the rest was great

Very close to the central station. Almost no attendance of the hotel staff. If their support is required, you need to call or go to a near sister hotel. Toilet could not be flushed in some morning. No elevator. Wi-Fi was only available in the lobby. However, considering the room rate and hotel in Flenze, it may be fair and within a range of acceptance.

Any shortcomings in terms of the service are outweighed by the location, which is just round the corner from the historic centre and everything it has to offer. Parking can be tricky, be prepared to circle for a while or to pay €5/hour in a parking garage.

First stay in this hotel. Room is clean. After three days also clean sheets and towels. The shower was very tiny and gave almost no water. There was a lot of background noise at night. Airconditioning or the waterworks?? We only once saw somebody at the reception. The location is excellent.

Beware of bathroom smell! Overall the hotel is not bad for a budget hotel. The staff was very friendly. The entrance is not the most inviting but the hotel itself is clean and adequate. The location is good next to the train station and down town. The room we had was nice sized for typical Europe budget accommodations. The room we had had a nice little charming view of the surrounding area. However, I must caution about the smell of the bathroom - it was horrible. The worst I have ever smelled. If we kept the bathroom door closed it was bearable in the room. However, I had to hold my nose to go into the bathroom. It smelled like the bathroom was directly in the worst smelling sewer I have ever experienced. I would not consider staying at this hotel again because of that. However, if you can live with the smell the hotel offers a good location and reasonable rooms at a good price.

I stayed there with my sister for the night we stayed in Firenze, The Hotel was perfect, really very good money value, it has everything we needed, Internet, Good, Wide,Clean, and Air Conditioned room. The Hotel is located so close to the Train Station beside Piazza Santa Maria Anna. and within a walking distance from most the sites you will need to visit. It didn't have MiniBar but i normally don't use that as soon as i am in a hotel in the middle of the city, so i didn't feel that as a drawback. The Reception closes at 18:00 but you have your own keys , and if you needed anything you can ask the Reception of another nearby hotel owned by the same family :) We didn't need anything after 6 anyway. Nadia is a very welcoming and helpful person, she was soo friendly and she guided us for the places we need to see and using the best transportation with the best Cost, N.B. we only needed Transportation to reach Piazza Micheal Angelo, we walked to all other sites everything was nearby. I really recommend this Hotel if you need the best quality/cost combination.

This hotel was a good value for money and one of the nicer places we stayed in Italy. My friend and I were there three nights and it was very nice. If you aren't worried about not having a shower stall (there is just a curtain around a shower head), it's definitely worth it. Only downside is that there is no included breakfast, but the room was clean, spacious and had a/c.

Simple and cheap hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Location is excellent, very close to train station and city centre (but quiet and peaceful). Our room (double with toilet and shower) was clean, large, luminous, with nice view, but a bit noisy, probably due to a nearby aircon. Good value for money.

+: very good location, 5 min from the railway station, all major touristic attractions are available by foot, free touristic map&advices available at frontdesk, small private bathroom with shower even if the reservation was available only with shared bathroom; free of charge late arrival (we arrived around 11pm and took the key from Domus hotel, 5 min from Elite); the lobby has tables+chairs even if the hotel does not serve food - so we used it for a late dinner with stuff from local market. -: the double bed was kind of small and the room was quite cold for april, the view from the window was to an interior dark cold terrace of 2x2m; no hair-dryer available in the building.

It is close to the train station. However, the furnishings were VERY tired and the beds overused. Our toilet wouldn't flush, so had to use the toilet out in the corridor. The biggest problem was the constant sewer smell! I would not recommend it.
