We had a confirmed reservation for three rooms. however we were informed that only two rooms were available and an additional room was made available in another adjacent hotel which was not at all good and had rude staff. the rooms at the hotel were small and the beds were of poor quality. the breakfast room was cramped and could not accomodate even all of us together comfortably. it is better not to talk about the breakfast menu. overall, a bad experience..

The bathroom was uncleen too. the breakfast was poor and bad. The price was expensive for the quality of services that they provide.

albergo accettabile, buona la posizione per sposatarsi nella città. ho viaggiato per lavoro da sola ed ho riposato bene. una "pecca" importante che mi ha fatto abbassare il punteggio. l'area colazione è miserrima e la colazione....ancora di più. non c'è un servizio bar per la colazione ma una macchinetta che prepara il caffè e il croissant è nel cellophane. una nota davvero dolente per una sistemazione tutto sommato discreta. una nota non riportata anche se non di fondamentale importanza. l'albergo è gestito da 2 signore cinesi (gentilissime)

The breakfast is really bad, everything is industrial, not even fresh bread!! and the rooms are really noisy. The price is really high (89 EUR/night/2 persons) compared to the room and service we had. I wouldn't recommend it at all. The only positive point: the location which is in the center,50 meters away from the railway station.

The map does not show the name of the street and it is very difficult to find it. The overall qualification takes account of the maney paid.

One of the best hotels we have stayed in Europe. The hotel owner speaks good english and is very helpful. The hotel is very near to the station and is close to restaurants and convenient stores. Walking distance to the shopping district. The room is clean and spacious. Breakfast is simple but filling.

L'hotel e' una piccola bomboniera in mezzo a una meravigliosa città,noi abbiamo fatto delle richieste e ci sono state tutte accontentate x questo riteniamo che l'hotel per qualità prezzo sia uno dei migliori della città e se poi dovessi ritornare a firenze non cercherei nemmeno piu' altri hotel ma tornerei semplicemente a l'Hotel Rayan (unica pecca colazione un po' povera)

the only bad thing was the strong and old smell of cigarette's smoke. It was almost unbearable. L'UNICA COSA NEGATIVA ERA LA PUZZA DI FUMO DI SIGARETTE, UNA PUZZA FORTISSIMA E VECCHIA. ERA QUASI INSOPPORTABILE

Walking distance to the main sightseeing attractions. Clean and modernized rooms, exept for the renovated bath rooms with mamor (I did not see any mamor). The breakfast is not good. But there are so many coffee facilities around. I would choose this place again. Good location, good price!

This hotel was certainly acceptable--clean, convenient--but it is looking a bit worse for wear! Our curtains, for example, while lovely were torn from the curtain rod and just hanging there. Breakfast was unacceptable. In a tiny little room served to us by the same woman manning the desk (we had to wait the one morning we bothered to do so), and it was nothing more than a packaged brioche and some cookies. We went to the bar for breakfast directly afterwards. As I said, the hotel was fine but I would never recommend it to others, not for the money we spent on it.

Overall good stay. Would probably go back again, if assured a rear room. We reserved a "quad" but when we got there, one was not available, so were given a triple & a single in the quiet rear. That nite they told us we'd have to pack up & move the next day to a quad :( which was on the noisy street front (with peeling wall paper).

La habitacion estaba muy limpia y bien organizada. Lo unico es que el hotel es muy pequeño y no tiene ascensor, y el desayuno es un poco pobre (solo un croissant, tostadas, un cafe y un jugo). Sin embargo, esta muy bien ubicado, al lado de la estacion central de trenes, las habitaciones son comodas y muy limpias.
