“Across the street from station, short walk from Duomo”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

This hotel is down the block and across the street from the station, but our room was very quiet. The proprietor was very friendly. The free WiFi did not reach our room at the front of the building, but did reach a comfortable common area. Continental breakfast was served at small tables with stools in a hallway which was fine for us with only one other guest present but would prove problematic for a group when the hotel is full. The hotel was clean, quiet, and really well situated with regards to the station, to the Duomo and David. One caveat - our room came with a half dozen mosquitos which interrupted our sleep. Flecks on the walls indicated at least one previous guest was forced to make use of a paperback as I did.

This hotel is conveniently located close to the train station and not far from restaurants and attractions. The owner (Patricia) is fantastic - so friendly and helpful and gave us some fantastic info on the sights you would not normally get. Breakfast was OK and the cappucino was the best I have had in Italy. If you are going for 2 star give this a go. For Fierenze the price is good and location fantastic (50 m from train station). Unfortunately I have decided I am not a 2 star traveller. Bathroom was very very small and noise travelled very easily. People walking down the hall, the alarm for people coming up the stairs and the coffee machine at 0730 meant little sleep for me.

We stayed for three nights and had a double bed room with toilet, air conditioning and TV. The room was very decent for the price (Florence is a bit expensive), English speaking staff (the owner?) was super helpful and friendly, some of the staff didn't know English too well but they were always friendly and courteous. The location is absolutely superb, just a few minute walk from the railway station. Recommended.
