I don't recommend that any solo traveller stay here. I was given room 501 - a dark single room with the tiniest bathroom I've ever seen. Holes in the sheets, frayed bedspread, only 2 hangers in the wardrobe... The worst thing was the noise. It was next to the old and very noisy lift and had what looked like an...

The location wa s a surprise. It is close to the train terminal, which I must add is a plus, and when looking for it after disembarking from a train from rome we walked passed it. The signage really needs some work. Nonetheles the staff were professional, helpful and friendly enough. The room was incredible! It was huge compared to...

The hotel is in the heart of the city, within walking distance of the bus and train station. Clean room. Poor selection for bfast, late start and slow to replenish even in low season winter. Dont think they can handle large crowds.

This hotel had lovely character with antique furniture and decor. The location was great near train station, buses, local markets, many restaurants and walking distance to landmarks and museums. Staff were super helpful and friendly, from reception-concierge to restaurant to cleaners. Breakfast was plenty and a balanced buffet. The room was up on the 5th floor, with lovely views and...

This hotel is a 2 minute walk from the train station and a 5-15 minute walk for everything you'll want to visit during a stay in Florence. The rooms/hotel are on the smaller size but the accommodations are comfortable, very clean, and up to date. There is also a continental breakfast prepared in the morning. Check - in and out...

The hotel was right next to all sightseeing in Florence! 5 Minutes to Duomo, 15 to Ponte Veccio and Pallazzio Veccio, 1 min to Saint Lorenzo Cathedral and Train Station. Our room ( 103 ) was new with a nice new bathroom, which for us was amazing as we like new clean spaces. The hotel was safe with 24 hours...

This hotel has a great location; easy walk from the train station, even if you are dragging lots of luggage. The neighborhood also had lots of good restaurants.
