I rented this hotel for my daughter for one night, June 2015. She rang the bell when arriving but no one answered the bell. The hotel was loud, TV played in the lobby all night. The shower curtain was full of mold. They insisted she pay for breakfast, although the room was supposed to include breakfast for 2. She skipped... More

We got this room through Hot Wire, so we did not know what the hotel was before we paid... and it was our worst hotel experience ever. The service was very poor and the breakfast more than disappointing, but the worst was our bedroom. 3 single beds : one uncomfortable, one very uncomfortable and one extremely uncomfortable. Plus, the drain... More

The positives first: the location of this hotel is great, within walking distance of the city centre and the train station. The staff was friendly and spoke well enough English. But there is a huge negative here: bedbugs and lots of them. Found them on the bottom and top of the matress and on the floor. Locally bought bugspray helped... More

As soon as we walked into the lobby our heats sank. The place is filthy, it's basically a dump. Our room was awful! I broke out in some sort of rash from the bed (it wasn't bed bugs), we found a pair of OLD MOLDY socks in the nightstand, and the bathroom...oh man! We didn't shower our entire stay there... More

Stayed there for two nights. The first inconvenient we encountered was the check in. I find it unbelieable that in such a visited city as Florence, check in time in a hotel is only for a couple of hours until 7pm. If you contact them to check in at a later time, they dont know what to do. I have... More

We booked this Hotel for a 4-night stay online.
