I will start with the good things. The location is good. Near the station and easy to take a bus to and from Pisa airport. Clean and spacious room. Clean bathroom. Coffee and tea complimentary, but that's it.
When I booked and it said there is an external bathroom I didn't suspect we need to go through the whole corridor to reach OUR bathroom. Very uncomfortable!!!
The hotel was one floor up. So, if you have problem with walking stairs as I have it will be difficult.
The rooms are very, very noisy all day and almost all night so you can't keep your windows open, even if you are suffocating of heat. Florence could be a very warm city even in May. When asked to use some AC we were politely told that is too early for AC to be on. Too expensive. The temperature were 30 degrees and around.
We were six days, and the internet was working only three of those days. The reception is working only from 9am - 1pm, and if you are busy sightseeing(the very reason you are there) you can't talk to anyone until you match your schedule with their working time.
Only the girls who looked after the hygiene of the room and the bathroom were doing their job properly. Nobody else I am afraid.
The experience was ok, nothing you can do about it once you are there, but I wouldn't be happy to recommend the rooms or go back there I am afraid.

Room Tip: Rooms on the terrace side are much quieter and room with en-suite bathroom.

You enter on the ground level into a common stairwell. This area has a strong sewage odor. Then you walk up two long flights of stairs. There is a small elevator that is used just for luggage. You then enter the common area. Sometimes it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Our room, however, did not. The decorations are modest. I believe most rooms have a shared bathroom, but ours was en suite. It is small and there is no surface area anywhere in the bathroom, including in the shower, which means shampoo and soap have to be held or set on the floor.

While they advertise free wifi, it did not work for the three days of our stay. They admitted that it is difficult to keep it working.

The hostess (other than on Sunday) was very helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: Try someplace else.

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for budget accommodation that is clean and comfortable. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are spotless albeit we had to cross over the passage and unlock with a key each time...this creates a fair bit of noise for other guests at night time. Lovely fluffy white towels were a treat.
Free WiFi is available and is fast.

Situated on the first floor and accessible by stairs and a small lift. Very secure and password protected through two entrances.

Great location for shopping and restaurants...in fact, close to everything!

Room Tip: Request room with bathroom inside rather than across the hall

My sister & I stayed here from 7 to 12 Dec. the B&B is an easy 10 min walk from Santa Maria Novella Station. It is on the first floor. There is a lift but it was not available to use. There is a laundrette across the street & the sights, restaurants etc are within easy walking distance. The Wifi is very good. Charity was welcoming, friendly & helpful. Our room was comfortable & clean. Our bathroom was spotless!!!!! We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay here.

When entering the building you are welcomed by a piercing stench of urine, we had that for 5 days. First floor, very central, supermarket, bike rental and laundry very close nearby, also the main station. City tax will be deducted additionally 2€*person*night. Bathrooms not directly connected to the room, you need to cross the hallway. Extremely loud if you open the window at night, acceptable for this location if you have it closed. Room service cleaned but also took our second cup away and didn't refill tea etc. We didn't eat breakfast there, costs extra. No stress when we didn't leave the room by 10.
