We were trying to find an good balance of costs and distance to the historic center in Firenze. Mia Cara hotel seems to be a really good choice. At hotel booking portal it was offer at a price of 110-120 per one night for a couple. Just slightly closer to the center and the costs go double. It's really just...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Nice and clean accommodation with a lovely spread of breakfast. Staff are very friendly. It is also very close to train station, museums, various attractions, restaurants and shopping areas. Highly recommended.

My friends and I stayed here during December 2015. The place was very nice, with an excellent breakfast and a friendly staff. However on our last day our pleasant experience had a poor ending when two pieces of our luggage were stolen. We had left them that day in the lobby, where we were assured they'd be safe while we...

Stayed as a solo traveler in a private room on ground floor, right near breakfast room and reception. Had fantastic/perfect internet.

Best breakfast in any hostel for my 7 week trip, though...

Hotel Mia Cara is a very nice little hotel that is located really close to the station. Even though it is close to the station (10 min walk with bags) it is quiet. The front desk is open 24 hours and they are one of the few places where I saw a wheel chair lift. The rooms are clean and...

we actually booked for Hostel Archi Rossi, but upon arriving at the hostel we were forwarded to hotel Mia Cara - just a couple of steps away. At first we were surprised that we will be staying at a different hotel but then we were glad that they did. The room was very nice. The best hotel we have stayed...

Had a TV AND a computer in the room also, but didn't use them. The free Wi-Fi was excellent too, nice strong signal. Breakfast was included. Hot buffet to choose from as...
