“Fantastic, Friendly and great value”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

Stayed at the Sani Tourist House, Firenze only very recenrly, was great value and right in the heart of Firenze.

Remo, the proprietor is an amzingly friendly and helpful soul. During my stay with Remo, I was made to feel like famly and I will forever have fond memories of my time there.

Picture this, a beautifully comfortable bed, overlooking a terrcotta tiled roof several hundred years old, framed by an even older belltower, listening to a reciting ot Dante below...pure bliss and a moment in time burned into my heart and soul....

I appreciate this comment and wish to thank the guest who stayed at our place

Finally, every sometimes, there are some people in the world able to understand the effort of a little property owner

The only thing which we find strange and which has nothing to do with the guest is the final valutation appearing on the top level of the comment:

ONLY THREE POINTS!

We find it strange for the simple reason that the guest rated everything at the maximum level:

value: 5
rooms: 5
location: 5
cleaninless: 5
service: 5
sleep quality: 5

Could the T.A. staff kindly explain why they set the final rating at level 3 instead of level 5?
Many thanks

The hotel is centrally located, in a quiet building. It is a little difficult to find, especially from the train station, so make sure you ask for detailed directions.Our room was very spacious, clean, equipped with a small table, 2 chairs, refrigerator, complimentary tea making facility and TV. The bed was huge and comfortable with clean and fresh linen. The bathroom was also clean, with running hot water, though the door was a little jammed and could not be locked. The owner was honest and frank, spelled out the rules at the very beginning. He was not rude or arrogant, in fact he helped us a lot with maps and directions. He made a mistake with the invoice but promptly returned the extra amount when pointed out.

You will be hard pressed to find a better location in Florence. The hotel is quaint, clean, and right near all the action and sights. VERY comfortable beds and bedding. The owner is helpful with anything you might need while in Florence. You will find a simple room with all you need for a nice stay.
Great value for money.

My husband and I loved this quirky little hotel right smack in the middle of happenin' Florence. It's a budget place -- don't go if you need a modern (or spacious) elevator or, you know, chocolates on your pillow -- but also an outstanding value. The owner was so nice and helpful -- he gives you a little tour and rundown of the facilities and then you're basically on your own, which we liked. There was a fridge and a safe and a comfy bed, and everything was quite clean. And best of all, the windows opened out onto a view of the oldest building in Florence! It's walking distance to pretty much everything. You get breakfast vouchers for a great place around the corner -- pastries and coffee (great cappucino!). We went every night to have an aperitivo at Caffe Mingo around the corner, and made friends (say hi to Don Pietro!) Only downside is that we had to leave.

We find it a bit hard to share some negative opinions expressed on this forum; We have noticed how kind Remo is and how thorough. Everything has been very confortable and well equipped: fridge, electronic safety box, tv, hair dryer, free wi fi connection, excellent for the cost! Very good quality. Being central it can be noisy with late tourists but one pair ear-plugs...and problem vanquished! We loved the ambient in general and our room was perfect, very sunnied, with two panoramic windows and nice florentine floor tiles!
We would definetly recommend STH to friends and will come again. Thank you very much.
