I have nothing bad to say about this one. Check out was at 10 AM, but they let us keep our bags in the office till our train later that night, which was super convenient! The wifi worked well, and there was no curfew or anything. The manager helped us out a lot with directions and suggestions too!

We stayed for two nights in November & I'm still not sure what to make of this place. We had a room that backed onto the mangers office, and they had basically pinned a sheet over a hole in the wall that clearly used to be a doorway, so it wasn't so great clearly hearing the people in the office...

I stayed here with my frd whose wallet was stolen in Venice. The manager helped us a lots, showing us how to get to the police stations, the embassy, ...etc She is very nice and helpful!!! The room is clean and neat!! But bear in mind you have to carry your luggage, go up for 3-floor stairs.

Mary's House is a very conveniently located guesthouse in Florence, just 200m away from the main train station and about 5-10mins from the city centre. I did a bit of research beforehand and for the price, it seemed very reasonable. So for the beginning of my 5 night stay, I exited the train and followed their very clear instructions to... More

Literally 3 minutes from main railway station. Easy to find, and we were emailed a few days before we departed with a contact telephone number in case of any problem. Large comfortable en suite room with marble floor. Need to be aware that the Hotel is on the upper floors of an 18th Century building. Stairs are steep and no... More

We stayed here in a room with a private bathroom. literally 3 minute walk from the train station. the owner, Mary, is very kind and helpful. being that Florence isn't very big, the Hostel's location is great. Room & Bathroom were very clean. Only downside for younger travellers is that it's quite quiet..Good value.

If you're just looking for a place to rest your head at night and not expecting to spend any time in your room, this is the place. It's very clean, cheap and basic. Mary and her son are very nice and accomodating. And the location is unbeatable, just minutes from the train station, near Santa Maria Novella and all the... More
