Knew it wasn't going to be the best, but still a bit disappointed. Room and bathroom were outdated, tired and almost seemed dirty. There was a tray of potpourri (at least I think that's what it was) with a cigarette butt in it. Not a lot of soundproofing and no bolt for the door, which made me jumpy all night....

Fantastic little find on booking.com Originally intended to be here 2 nights, but have extended to a third night so we can see more of Florence. Rooms are large and modern with great showers. Balcony ( mind this as the parapet is a bit low!) overlooking in our case towards the nearby airport. Nice gift of a couple of boxes...

We just randomly picked this hotel. It provided hotel level room with bed & breakfast price. Free parking and free wifi. Stuffs were nice and gave us map and bus information to the city. We should just stay in this Florence hotel instead of lived in Pisa for couple days. Recommend to people.

We arrived at 1.30 am in Florence due to a massive flight delay. We were relieved to find the hotel open and manned by a very helpful and welcoming receptionist even though we were hours late and it was the middle of the night. The room were clean, comfortable and had everything we needed, in particular very comfortable beds!!. The...

There are issues with making reservations through the English version of the website. In essence, if you book for two people, you get charged for two rooms. I understand that it make take some time to correct the issue, but I am giving this place a low review because they charged me for a known error on their part. When...

Apparently the hotel is conveniently close to the airport, and actually it's just a few hundred metres away but covering this distance walking is a kind of an adventure as there is no walkway and you have to cross busy roads and a lawn. With heavy luggage definitely not recommended. The alternative options are either bus or taxi. The issue...

The hotel is nicely centrally located to the airport and bus stops and a couple of restaurants. The hotel staff was friendly and spoke English quite well. There is free wifi and an option for breakfast. The rooms are modest, simple and clean. The walls are paper thin tho. I could hear people all over the hotel moving chairs, closing...

I wonder if it's just this hotel or an Italian thing in general but there isn't a cover on the duvet. There is a sheet kind of half wrapped around a bare duvet which you have to get inside without accidently pulling it too far off so you come into contact with the duvet, which I'd imagine so many other...

OK for a stop over if picking up a car from the airport as I was. Did not experience any staff issues as some have mentioned, Roman was helpful, friendly and gave good suggestions re transport. Also helped with tickets. Room was basic but reasonably comfortable. Breakfast OK. Only problem I found was that you can hear everything from rooms...

Very basic room but comfprtable. Did take a while to heat the room up as the temperature dropped dramatically after 6pm. We were very close to the airport which would've been great if on a business tip. Besides that the staff were very nice and gave us a kettle for the room even though we thought we already were supposed...
