    It's clean and provides basic facilities for a short city break; main thing is its convenient location

    Being close to the station and city center.

    The bathroom was so small and it smelled like draining.

  • Single
    6.6

    fairly good location: in the downtown, close both to the railway station and to museums and other sites to visit. They offer free wi-fi Internet, though only at the lobby

    rooms decoration is a depressing nightmare. Also the first one room they gave me had window right on the backyard of a fish restaurant, was very noisy and smelled. When I refused, they gave a better room, but as I said.. decoration was very old-fashioned and depressing. Dark green walls with pictures of fish

    The hotel facilities are quite poor. It is an old building which needs refurnishments. Toilets are extremely old. The shower and the WC are put together in several rooms, which provides unpleasant feelings from a hygienic point of view. Howeer, it is not a rare layout according to the hotel staff. We were a large group of friends and none of us will ever repeat the experience.

    only the location was fine.

    is the worst hotel i ever stayed. is like a hotel of 1-2 stars. the bathroom is a nightmare, it was a twin bed with holes in the mattress and it wasn't clean.

    Just Location.

    Dirty and small room. Terrible hotel bath room, I've ever have in my life.

  • Single
    5.4

    Excellent location and helpful staff

    The double room was like a railway carriage, starting at one end at 1.5m and the other around 2m. Beds were end to end. The hotel must have better rooms!

  • Couple
    2.8

    Internet is bad, staff is ok but not helpful. Felt like a cheap motel, bathroom was tiny. I never thought it possible to have a bathroom in a coat closet

    Motel6 is a huge upgrade from this hotel

  • Single

    Had a very nice breakfast and the room was small, but comfortable.

    It was very difficult to connect to the hotel's Wi-Fi.

  • Couple
    3.8

    only location, everything else was far below my expectations and far from what I saw on the pics on web presentation

    stuff, cleanliness, room in general... for 2 nights that I spent in this hotel, I had to change 3 rooms. and believe me, I am not a sort of demanding person - taking into account all my trips, this was the first time that I had to change rooms because they were so poor

  • Single

    Conveniently placed in centre of Firenze. Also near railway station.

    Very small room. The shower was the very, very, very smallest that any shower could be.

  • Couple

    The breakfast was good, and the staff were very kindly.
