The hotel is too expensive for what you get. Breakfast could be much richer. Though it's situated in 15 minutes walking distance from Florence center. Nice local restaurant is just near the hotel which serves pizza, pasta with seafood.

The room was tottaly horrible. Above the bed, there was huge disruption on the ceiling and also some maps, like after the flood from your neighbors upside. Next, the room was completely different to the photos on the booking.com – no one photo on the booking is from this room. Bathroom and toilet are like from 80 years old communist...

We asked for extra coffee at breakfast and was told that was available but only for an extra cost of 3 Euros!! That was on top of the 55 Euros we paid for B&B! Wi-Fi is very sporadic in the outside area and inside, dropping constantly.

This hotel was a huge disappointment and a big scam. When we booked the room, we realized that it does not look great in pictures, but I never imagined that such a room can be rented. When we arrived, the first thing we thought was very strange was that we were asked to pay for registration, before seeing the room....

The location was perfect, that's why we chose it and also pictures don't look that bad, anyway I got the worst room you can ever...

It is really a hostel. The only advantage is the close location to interesting places, but after going through this place I don't know if it is worth it. Let's be honest, if you are ready to pay this kind of money, you shoudn't complain about everything in this place, but on the other hand even a fair hostel offers...

Me and my fiancée stayed here for one night during the end of September. The hotel was easy to find and isn't too far from the station. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Wifi was available, however this was limited to certain areas and not accessible from our room. We found the room itself to be basic and fairly...
