El hotel Guelfa no respeta la calidad ofrecida en la página respecto del precio y fotos ofertadas. La habitación que nos tocó a la calle en el primer piso fue incómoda, dado su poco espacio. No conozco el resto de las habitaciones, pero es la que me toco!! La atención del señor mayor que hace la guardia, no recuerdo su nombre, pero muy agradable y amabale.

Even though the front desk guy who was there at night didn't speak English, he seemed quite willing to help and we managed to communicate enough to call a taxi for the train station (which wound up costing too much, but that may not be the hotel's fault - just that the Italian taxi driver knew we were American.)

The hotel room was dirty, one of the cleaners used to clean the bedsheets every second day and never hoover the carpet. the smells were dreadful, also the air vent smelled after switching it on for 5 minutes. the breakfasts were boring the same thing everyday. the staff were friendlyish but they really need to work on the hotel, starting with a thorough clean of the all the rooms. the shower was busted and the man said he'd repaired it but it was still the same. overall i wouldnt recommend hotel guelfa to my worst enemy it sucks. good luck to anyone who steps through the gate of doom and gloom.

Si era in tripla posta sullo stesso piano e prossima alla portineria, accanto ad un bagno comune a disposizione delle stanze prive di servizi per cui spesso, sbagliando, qualcuno anche di notte provava ad entrare in camera.

It's 10-15 min walk from the Firenze SMN and the same time to the Duomo. In general I was very happy with the price/quality combination.

The hotel was ok, located not too far from the train station and the city center (10 minute walk from either). Room was ok. Breakfast was small, but sufficient. The only complaint is that the room was really cold. The heater was turned on only during nights and even then not very high. In summer this would not be a problem, but the weather during our visit in March was still quite cold, especially at night, so this hotel might not be the best place if you feel chilly easily. Other than that, we were happy with the hotel and would stay there again (but only in summer ;-)

For the price, this "hotel" should be rated below a youth hostel. First, it is located a block away from the marketplace, which you have to cross whenever you want to get to restaurants and important landmarks. The air conditioning was a joke, it could hardly work due to a broken electric outlet. A grumpy old manager will sit beside the shared bathroom you choose, probably to count how many minutes you take on the shower. Finally, no credit cards are accepted, so make sure you bring cash before you check out.

Es una hotel d'una qualitat mitjana amb una relació molt acceptable qualitat-preu, sobretot pel fet que la seva situació es immillorable respecte els llocs més destacables de Florència. Es un hotel adient per una estada de dos o tres dies. Per estances més llargues les habitacions són excessivament reduïdes. Tot i això és acollidor i amb una atenció molt coordial. Si us agraden els gats sempre en veureu algun per la planta, si no millor escolliu un altre hotel (són molt mansos i inofensius).

We asked a mop to clean the water. oops. Don't get excited with water. open it slow and your bathroom is safe. and for the breadfast, perhaps it is better to take them outside bar. recircled unopened biscket packs with hair ecc... ewww.

After checking into the hotel we were given a room that is obviously reserved for the local wildlife. Cats had sprayed in the room, the bedding was ripped, the sheets and pillows were covered in cat hair and mud and my party left the hotel with a variety of flea bites (after only 20 minutes)that were particularly unpleasant. The paint had peeled off the wall and was painted over in a different colour. The room opened onto a terraced balcony that can only be described as a refuse collection site. stay here at your peril!

Great Hotel for the price. It has one star but it is a very clean hotel with brand new furnitures, and very close to the center. I had a very spacious room. The employees were very kind. I am extremely happy I spent my night in Florence at Guelfa Hotel. Cons:The sight from my balcony was pretty ugly, but it did not bother me. The brekfast was very poor. There is not a buffet breakfast (the common area is too small for that), but you are served and you have a coffe (or similar), a glass of orange juice, 2 slices of toasted bread with jam, and a pastry (definitively too poor for a breakfast lover as me)

The staff were super nice and the common areas were very stylish and elegant, and the rooms were very clean. A great little hotel!

The guy who welcomed us was good, directed to the room and helped with the luggage. But the room was terrible. The lock doesnt open easily and we had to learn some tricks to open the lock from them. And the second guy, who stayed at the night was breaking in to the room for no reason few minutes after we returned to the room. Reason told was nothing, but he pretended as if he is checking the lock. Heard lot of noices and loud voices all night long, disturbing the sleep. Toilets are not clean. Breakfast was too little, just a croissant and a bread, one glass of orange juice. The old man who stayed in the night duty served the breakfast and he insisted delivering only cappucino to everyone, and that was full of water and nothing else. Overall, only good advantage I see is that the hotel is centrally located, but need to sacrifice a lot for it.

The worst hotel we stayed in on our trip. The room was worth about half of what we paid. The walls in the room were FILTHY, as if some kid had decided to smash a dirty pair of sneakers against the wall about 50 times. There was a generally mildew/musky kind of smell whenever we returned to the room, and the "shower" was disasterous. Basically the shower was a shower head attached to the wall and not seperated from the rest of the bathroom. There was a drain, although whenever one took a shower the entire bathroom would get flooded. However, it seemed like this occurred by design, so on some level I guess the bathroom functioned as intended. When we arrived at the hotel, there was no one there to greet us, and all of the room keys were out in the open for pretty much any streetgoer to have their way with. Finally, someone arrived to help us after 15 minutes. The staff was nice, but I can't believe their proud of the establishment they run. Generally, not a good deal by any stretch of the imagination.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Guefla. It was a very clean and spacious room and the price could not be beat. The hotel was very easy to find and it is centrally located. I think the breakfast we had there, which is included, was one of the best during our whole trip. My only complaints were that you cannot depend on a wake up call, and the man who works at night speaks little English. Aside from that, it was a great stay. We would book Guefla again that next time we're in Florence.
