Our room was right next to the stairway. We could hear every single person who went up or down from stairway, we could also hear every conversation and noise. It woke us up many time during the night. We felt that we were staying at hostel.

Stayed in the street-front room which was very noisy but that didn't bother us. It was very spacious and the staff were helpfull although they had little English. Everything was as described and in my opinion excelllent value for money - only problem was although they had a 24h reception they close the door during the day so you often had to knock and wait because they dont give you a key to open it and you cant walk straight in.

The hotel location is a bit different from that indicated on the Google map (it's on the other side of the road). It's pretty close to the SMN train station, the SITA bus station, & to the main places of interest. The staff was nice. The room was a bit long but narrow, still cosy, with a sink (lav was shared). I stayed at the 1st floor, & if U have heavy bags be aware of no elevator. There's a nice cafe very close to the hotel with rather friendly prices. Though indicated, the Internet was not available, which was critical; thnx God there were lots of inet points around. As a negative point, the facility doesn't provide any breakfast.

I took advantage of an unbelievable special offer - €15 per night for a single room without breakfast. In reality they gave me a double room with ensuite, while a buffet/self service breakfast was on offer for another €3. The hotel is smart, comfortable and exceptionally clean; the only negative side could be the surroundings which are typical of station areas all over the world; not the cleanest, and with groups of immigrants loitering on street corners at all hours. Florence is not normally a dangerous city but the impression when darkness falls might be a little off-putting.

I booked a room in this hotel because my bus went to the airport at 3:30 am, so I only needed it for sleeping 3 or 4 hours, I did not need more. In general, the hotel is ok for this purpose. It seems to be clean, but I found an insect in bed. Perhaps, I would have happened in an expensive hotel anyway, I do not know, I only tell what it happened. In any case, the hotel was clean, it is very cheap and it is very well situated closed to the train station.

We were really not happy here, especially for what we paid. The hall bathroom was not adequately cleaned and it flooded every time someone showered. I didn't even feel comfortable going in to use it and we were ready to be out of there by our last night. The breakfast was meager for the 3 euros charged and left to sit out all night. I understand we were in a foreign country and need to try to speak the language, but most of the receptionists' English was poor. One man said he would come by and help with the heater and he never did. The (we suppose) owner who asked for payment was rude and gruff. I think we should have paid a few more euros and stayed somewhere that would have been much nicer with larger rooms (we could hardly move!)

Friendly staff, I asked for a low flor (because of my mother that could not climb stairs)and they gave us a spacious room on the ground floor. good location and really nice. Beautiful courtyard. The night receptionist told us that the heating would turn on automatically in the evening (It was really cold).It did not turn on automatically. The next morning we asked again & someone else told us that we had to turn it on ourselves and it worked fine.

You could not beat the prices, and the location near the train station is hard to beat. Its close to many places of interest. The gentleman that ran the front desk in the evening, smoked like a chimney and if that does not bother you than this may be your place. Our room was a good 20 feet away and I would wake up in the middle of the night to the smell of cigarette smoke. The rooms seemed clean but the upkeep was a bit behind and made things feel probably worse than they were. The quarters were definitely cramped.

for the price, this hotel is good. Additional information about surroundings: There is a restaurant called 'i' Vinaino' near the hotel. It is good. The price is reasonable cheap, and the foods taste good. Do NOT go to 'Curtatone' at the Via Curtatone. It is terribly expensive and low quality foods. They charged me 13 euros for 2 pieces of cakes and one coffee. The price is much more expensive than the nominal price. For example, the price on the tag for the piece of cake is 2 euros, but they charged me 4 euros. I only paid only 3 euro for similar things at a cafe near the railway station. So avoid the 'Curtatone' at all means.

I stayed in Florence for 3 days, 2 nights. My favorite part about Florence was the Biboli Gardens, if you are a nature person, I would definitely recommend it! I enjoyed Hotel Palazzuolo because it was close to the train station and still in walking distance of all of the sights. The best part about the hotel is that it only cost 20euro a night and I felt that it had a clean, quiet, and friendly atmosphere. I stayed in a double with a shared bathroom. The room was decently sized but thats okay because I was only sleeping in it. The bathroom was clean and always open.

Easy walk from train station, this hotel is ideal for those wishing to spend a couple of days in Florence. 10 minute walk from the city, lots of restaurants and cafes close by. Tip - drink your coffee standing up at a cafe, sitting at a table costs you nearly triple the amount. Room was large, as was bathroom - I think we had a room fitted for wheelchair bound people. There was a fair amount of noise from other guests, as well as reception staff watching tv late at night and talking. There was also the smell of cigarettes coming in, even though there was a non-smoking sign.

Hotel located just 100m from main railway station, with a lot of shops around. 15 min walking distance to main city atractions. the biggest disadventage is bathroom. 1st floor one is acceptable but on the 2nd you can have a shower only if you are slim and using toilet is only for those who practise yoga. Low price, low standard but if you are on budget will be decent enough.

I have stayed here before and it is a good value, safe and clean. However both times I experienced guests who came in late at night and were very loud for long periods (until I had to go ask them to be quiet). The amnagement need to caution guests that there are mandatory quiet hours (generaly 0800 to 2200) and then monitor the levels. Breakfast is a bit low quality but free at least.

The corridor and lounge was not clean. The breakfast was good. Throughout the night, it was pretty noisy.

It was a good stay for a night as we only need a room to sleep with an attached bathroom. The location was very good as it is close to the station and can easily be found.

Although it was as cheap as you'll find, it was pretty dirty inside - mostly the bathroom.

This is a good price/value ratio. You pay a low but fair price and should expect just about what this hotel offers. It is certainly convenient to the Train Station and about 1 kilometer from the Duomo, less to the Arno riverside area. One problem was very noisy and inconsiderate guests who came in late at night. Obviously this happens in all hotels and is random,i was there 3 nights and the last night was very quiet. One of the reception clerks (Madrellena) was especially helpful and she directed me to a great restaurant with modestly priced high quality meals. I am American but live in Italy and I will certainly stay her again.

We stayed two nights in this hotel. The room was spacious and clean. We did not have a chance to try the breakfast, you will need to get up early to have it. The room wasn't quiet enough, especially the night when you can hear what's happening in the corridor. For two nights, it was ok. The hotel is well situated, not far from the City centre and from the train station.

It's a very good experience in Firenze. Location is close to sites and the room is quiet and clean. The ceiling is so high and make us very comfort after the every tours in Firenze. I would recommend to everyone if you go to Firenze. Also Venere is a very goods .com as well.

This is just a place to spend a night if you dont want to spend much. No frills, even the surroundings are just ok. It is close to the train station and that is really good (we walked to the hotel). But felt like it was a safe area. Staff was very friendly and helpful - even though they did not speak English it was easy to communicate since they understood what I said.

Nice little hotel in a good spot, close to the train station and with easy access to the main sights. Be warned that there is no elevator, and quite a few stairs, so keep that in mind if you have a big suitcase!!

For price and location, this hotel was brilliant. I was a little dubious because it seemed very cheap, but i totally agree with other comments that the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the rooms were clean and practical (including air con) and the location was great. I would definately stay at this hotel again.

Room was nice & clean & we had private bath...some rooms didn't. There was no lift which I thought would create a problem...but the gentleman at the desk came down and brought our luggage up since we were on the third floor. Advertising said breakfast was 3 euros but was included free which was a treat not having to go out and find something. Also there was a nice restaurant only a block from hotel with reasonable prices. Room was very quiet & close to everything.

My wife and I stayed here in May 2008 and choose this hotel mainly for location; close to the train station and for the hire-car pick-up (Hertz). The area the hotel is in is not that nice, but for the 3 nights we were there, no problems. I guess for what you have to pay in Florence for accomodation, this hotel was reasonable. It was clean and tidy, but don't expect a lot. Access is via a locked door at street level, that the reception staff (single person) has to operate. When we arrived, we had to wait quite a few minutes before someone answered (probably indisposed!). Anyhow, if you're on a budget like we were, not too bad, although there are probably nicer places to stay in Florence.

El baño es compartido pero siempre estaba muy limpio y cuidado, lo limpiaban todos los días. Un problema que encontré es que el plato de ducha era muy pequeño y con cortina y era algo complicado ducharse, debería tener un plato de ducha algo más grande. La habitación era espaciosa y con un lavabo dentro de la misma. Eso si, la cama doble no era de 135 cm, sino de 105 cm y algo blanda. Las habitaciones no tienen nevera y algunas noches había mosquitos en la habitación. Por lo general, repetiría si me cambiasen la cama, fueron muy majos y agradables. Muy centrico para llegar a todo a pie, muy cerca de la estación aunque el barrio no es turistico.

Hotel is close to Santa Maria Novella station, though not very easy to find with the map available on venere.com. Sorroundings are not the prettiest, but there`s a nice restaurant right next door. One has to climb some steps to reach front desk and staff didn`t speak much English. Overall it was a fair hotel for the price paid, because European hotels are quite expensive.

La calidad y el precio se corresponden, tal como se indica en las instrucciones de la web, es un hotel bastante básico, lo justo para un par de noches, y lo importante para nosotros es que tuviera baño privado, inconveniente, está en un primero asi que hay que subir sin ascensor un buen numero de escalones, lo importante es saber cuanto se paga y cuanto se puede pedir. gracias

Great place for a couple on a budget. Location was OK, made better by the cafe down the street where we could pick up fresh pastry and juice for breakfast. Great proximity to train station and good starting point for walking tour of this magnificent city. Shared bathroom was mostly available at any time and usually clean. Spacious room had its own sink, which was very convenient. Courteous service, always a smiling face at the front desk.

This is probably the best (hidden) deal in Florence. Although not as close to the duomo as some other hotels, it is still quite close to everything.
