Dirty room, lots of insects in bedroom/bathroom. Moldy shower. Bathroom too small to sit on toilet or stand in shower comfortably. Shower head terrible. Very loud due to proximity of room to stairwell. Street the hotel is on smells of sewer (like most of florence). Nice staff, good free breakfast, wifi acceptable, air conditioning works well.

Stayed for three nights meeting old friend, something done on quite a regular basis. Hotel in great location, all the staff charming and helpful. My room was tiny but fine for such a short stay, bathroom okay. Could do with a couple more shelves. I didn't find the stairs bad but older or infirm people should avoid. Breakfast a let down, awful tea and coffee (sorry!) and not very nice rolls.

Perfect hotel. This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the duomo and 10 minutes walk from the train station. Couldn't have asked for a better location. We arrived earlier then expected. Young lady at the desk took one look at my tired children and accomodaed us by having the room cleaned as quickly as possible and let us check in early. They made us feel at home.

If you need the perfect location, the smiling and professional staff, reasonable prices - go for this hotel. I don't have enough words to express my gratefulness to dear people that helped me in every way: from chatting in the evening (I was alone on my travel this time) to running with my luggage to fetch the taxi which couldn't approach the hotel because of calcio match. The room was small but very clean, the shower good, the breakfast modest, but the price was modest too and the location absolutely winning.

This hotel is located 2 min. walk to Palazzo Vecchio, so if you want to stay in a hotel very close to the city centre and just need a bed, this is an ok hotel. The room was clean, new towels were provided every day and the breakfast was also ok, though nothing special. Be aware that the rooms are not very sound proof. Another minus is the mattress, which I think was much to hard.

Nice staying, friendly staff and very clean room, yet not very spacious, at least for mine. Excellent Surroundings, in terms of historical sites and entertainment.

I had arrived by car with friends ; the hotel is located in a very small street that does not even show on the map, and the GPS was powerless. Lots of one-way streets and blocked streets (it's the historical center). I ended up getting out of the car and walking to the hotel. Michelangelo lived just 3 houses down ! My room (single) was tiny but had everything. As it is an ancient building there is no elevator, but my suitcase was carried up. The people at the reception are absolutely charming and helpful. They booked my reservations to the Uffizi and the Academia. Don't expect a buffet breakfast, but you get refills on your (good) coffee. The location is exceptional, as all the good sites are within walking distance, just a few minutes away. There are some pretty good eating places not far, and a VERY good (and famous) ice cream place just 2 minutes away : Gelateria Vivoli, via Isola delle Stinche 7, who have good pastries and sandwiches too. Right across from them is a little shop that will prepare great sandwiches with authentic local products. The occasional noise from the street late at night did disturb me (people talking loudly) - the sound reverberates in the narrow streets. But earplugs helped ! I would really recommend this place. One last thing : I'm just over 65 and the entrance to many major museums is FREE for Europeans. Reservations are not, but 4 euros is reasonable.

Location of the hotel was excellent. The room I got was tiny and on the 3rd floor with no lifts but it was well laid out, clean and everything worked. The staff were warm and helpful. Not a bad breakfast in the mornings too. Overall, I liked it and will have no problems coming back.
