This is a good place to stay if you are traveling on a budget and only looking for a bed and a shower.
Perfect location, in the heart on Florence, but don't expect anything fancy.
Conditions are very basic, everything looks pretty old, and could...More
Place was in the centre of everything, could walk everywhere which was really handy.
However, rooms were dusty, pillow cases and sheets I don’t think were cleaned after each guest. Bathrooms got really wet and dirty easily, you definitely need thongs for bathrooms.
Had a really nice time at Locanda Rocco. It's what you would expect for a £12 hostel. Nice beds, good showers, kitchen (but with little utensil), very central and a great location. Check in is a bit confusing as it's actually on the other side...More
I probably wouldn't recommend staying here to anyone. Me and my 2 friends stayed only 1 night and it was very cheap but it was pretty foul. The reception was across the road at another hotel which was annoyed and stupid. The guy at reception...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
