One problem is taht there aren't elevators so you have to carry the suitcases upstairs. On the other hand, the receptionists are pretty friendly and try to help you with anything you need.

I had already stayed at the Unicorno a few years earlier at a time when the street outside was under repair and the whole area therefore in a bit of a mess. Neverthless, I found the hotel pleasant and the service willing and welcoming. This latest stay was one night only. I found the hotel had been renovated and considerably smartened. The service was if anything more friendly and accommodating, and now that Via dei Fossi is repaired, the guest can enjoy the benefit of the location with its fascinating antique shops. I hope to return soon.

I really enjoyed the Unicorno. It had a real bathtub. The only drawback was the noise, but that is primarily because of its location on a main street with a bridge across the Arno. If you are prepared to listen to the motorinos until all hours on a Saturday night, you should enjoy the hotel. Breakfast included scrambled eggs. I would stay there again with no qualms.

The garage on the other side of the street, not connected with the hotel but unique near to the hotel, was extraordinary in prize (48 € for two nights!) and unabel to deliver my car on the agreed time (we waited 40 minutes!). So noise in Firenze (we like to sleep with open windows) and this garage were problems. All other OK.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Unicorno. The staff were friendly, helpful, welcoming and efficient. The rooms were pleasant, with good facilities. Breakfast was a little 'basic', and could have been of better quality. In terms of value for money I would say the Unicorno was expensive, but in line with other hotels we have stayed in in Italy. We would recommend the Unicorno unhesitatingly.
