“Old fashioned typical Italian Hotel”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

This is a little out of town 20 mins but the walk is easy and along an interesting narrow shopping street with lots to see. Reception is basic but our meagre needs were attended to well. Wi Fi advertised did not work but could have been our kit. Breakfast basic but adequate in the basement. Lots of Russian visitors there when we were there. No problem leaving luggage on last day and allowed to escape the hot sun in the lobby until taxi arrived. Hosts far from gushing but were always helpful. Good value. Parking would be a nightmare if you needed it. We had taxi to and from Firenze SMN railway station - cost 15 euro.

Room Tip: We slept nicely on the ground floor rear quiet room. Watch our for midges through the window blinds...

I'd definitely recomment this hotel to families and solo travellers. Very quite atmosphere, nicely furnished rooms, generous breakfast with croissants, jams, salami and prosciutto, fresh bread...
Not in the middle of the tourist-area, but still very close (10 min. walk) to main attractions (Piazza Santa Croce, Piazza della Signoria). Very good prices, value for money.

Not bad, even if the furnitures are old and had an impression that the dark coverlet wasn't quite clean. The breakfast was fine, the service too. The hotel is situated not exactly in the center of Florence, so you have to have a long walk to reach the Dome or Palazzo Vecchio.

Reviewed 15 November 2011

We've stayed at this hotel at the beginning of October. The hotel is 30 min max walk from the center of Florence. There was no problem to arrive late in the night at the hotel, because it was a safe area.
The room was big enough,cleaned everyday, the bathroom had everything(hairdryer, shampoo, soap, towels, etc).
The breakfast is at the basement offering tipical italian food combined with continental style (cafelatte, prosciutto crudo,croissant, ham, fresh juices, hot milk, yogurt, etc) and you can eat as much as you want and can.
There was free WIFI in the building, not so good but works(an ID and pass-code has to be asked from the reception). There was a bar in the room and the most important thing it was a safe-deposit box.
One has to pay attention to mosquitoes (in the room there is an electric device for this...so use it)(there were mosquitoes even in October!)
From the reception it is possible to buy bus tickets (if I remember well, it ws around 2 euros), and to take free maps.Not so far from the hotel there is a bus station; bus no.14 goes to the train station.
Useful tips:
-take extra electrical extension (if you have more than 3 electrical devices: i.e. battery charger, notebook charger, etc)
-some times, the bus-drivers decide to have a strike-on a short notice-(we had this "LUCK" in the same day we've checked out from the hotel).
We kindly recommend this hotel for one or more nights.

This is a nice place to stay, but hard to find. The rooms are decent and the breakfast is good. The desk staff, however, could use a semester at charm school. It is within walking distance to town which is good. Parking in this area is impossible.
