I don't really understand what people are conplaining here about. Place was exactly what it said it was. Bed was comfy, breakfast at the nearby cafe was delicious, city center was in a walking distance, the staff was very helpful and polite. We shared a bathroom with one other room and that was not a problem at any point. Room...

Booked and paid for a room here but i was never able to see it. When i arrived there was no reception, called the number provided at the property and a man told me to wait 10mins. A lady came and told us that we can't stay here because the heater doesn't work and she took us to another property...

They did not mention there was a common bathroom upon the reservation, rooms were not too clean, shower had two modes - hot and cold. Breakfast os in nearby cafe just croissant and coffee. Good thing is great restaurant just few stepa away with a very tasty food. Rooms equipement is old and not renovated at all.

I have to say I agree with most of the negative reviews. The place was not particularly nice. Very very noisy not just the street noise but the upstairs neighbors and other guests, Air conditioning did not work and room was not layed out well so couldn't put our bags anywhere so had to walk over them. Pay a bit...

Reading all the other reviews I wonder what all those people expect. What you pay is what you get. Do you all sleep at home at silver mattresses? Hostel was really nice and clean, the staff was really helpful, we were allowed to check in 4 hours earlier and the owner treated us for coffee in the bar near by....

Every time went out, somebody came to our room and touched all our stuffs. Also after checking out, 100 eur has been charged without any explanation. Please go there if you want to get stolen by them.

Very professional and helpful check in by the owners, they even came out onto the main road to find us. Lovely quiet location 10 minutes walk from train station. Great local restuarant and bar next door..the owner of the bar Marcus was great and fantastic wine. The room was very comfortable, clean and a good size. Will be back again!!

Firstly, the reservation process was a mess. I have made reservation for our stay in August 2014 through VENERE.COM. Three days prior to arrival in September 2014, I received email from VENERE.COM that confirmed the booking. So I thought everything was going to be ok. However when we arrived at the property, not only no one was there, we had...

So this place was HORRIBLE! DO NOT BOOK!!!! First off, it is a FAR walk through a very not safe neighborhood. The neighborhood is in the OPPOSITE direction of everything you want to see. In order to get there, you need to cross several very busy intersections, past some graffiti covered buildings and walls- NOT SAFE. Additionally, locals are not...

Dear customer, your review is not exact, it seems that you have stayed in a concentration camp, unfortunately you are very good at writing but not reading, because if you read well your booking, the price you have chosen there was no breakfast included, so you only paid 49 euro per night to stay in Florence in summer, close to...

“Ask for a room not facing the main road.”

“"Leonardo" room is very spacious, with a 3 seats sofa with pillows, a large mirror and you can access both baths. I touched the paintings hanging on the wall - in "Leonardo" paintings made of him, in "Michelangelo" specific paintings etc - and it is not a simple print on a paper, it is rather canvas.”
