Proconsolo Rooms
Ranked #509 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 September 2005

I wonder if a lot of people complaining here regularly expect to get something for nothing. We paid €60 per night for a room 5 minutes walk from the Duomo. At that price you should not be expecting luxury. We did get the room with the fresco - it was spacious but basic.

The main problem is the shared bathrooms - two bathrooms between quite a few rooms (6-8?) which meant we ended up having to queue to ensure we got access in a reasonable time.

The hostel does offer free internet access on a single terminal, though it didn't seem to be working all the time.

Overall, I'm usually looking for a cheap, clean hotel/hostel, conveniently located. This one ticks all the boxes...

Our room was spacious, clean and quite pleasant. Excellent location. Unfortunately, I think that only one of the rooms has a painted ceiling so don't get taken in by the photo!

We didn't expect luxury from any of our hotels along our travels around italy, and this certainly isn't luxury - very simple - a bed and a cupboard!

I stayed there with a friend, fortunatly only for 2 nights. We asked for a twin room with private bathroom, they confirmed it but when we arrived we found a double room with share bathroom, it was terrible, no tv, no telephone, not clean, everything old and dirty. The owner was non existent, we saw her just when we arrived she asked to pay our stay and gave us a map of Florence, nothing more.
Please go elsewhere, also if it is cheaper and central!!!

From reading the other reviews there seems to be 2 Proconsolo Rooms. The one of Via Proconsolo, owned by a Croation lady, and another one owned by a Spanish lady - apparently called Proconsolo Rooms 2. We stayed for three nights at the first, which is the only one apparently offering 2-bed rooms. It was a great disappointment and nothing like it was advertised. No frescoes in the room, the windows could not close, the room far from nicely decorated, and there was no cleaning. Not even of the bathrooms during our entire stay. The common room, which was described as a place to relax, did not seem common at all, since the door was closed at all times and held the office of the owner. The absolutely only positve thing is the location, but besides from that it cannot be recommended.

I spent one week there in March 2004 with my sister and a friend. The hostel is actually behind the Duomo on the third floor of a historic (everything in that area is historic) building. The rooms are not huge, the furniture isn't that fancy, and there are 3 standard bathrooms. The location of this place is fantastic. If you go to Florence and are expecting to stay in your room, you need to have your head examined. There is nothing wrong with this place, and the owner was very friendly and was usually available for questions.
