We booked another B&B (Ninna Nanna) for 3 nights, but the owner was not home when we arrived. She asked us to wait but it turned out that she actually just pushed us to 'Hotel' Souvenir without showing up at all. We were led to hotel souvenir without any notification that we would no longer stay in the place we...

I'm a solo backpacker that was staying around the corner at PlusFlorence ..after 3 nights couldn't extend my stay! Due to high density of bookings...And in comes Hotel Souvenir which saves the day and for a reasonable price at that! As a backpacker sometimes you need those nights where you get some peace and quiet and good rest every once...

Booked a double bed room with own bathroom + good location + warm water in the shower - hasn't accepted my credit card, wanted cash. So the original booking from booking.com was canceled and therefore we can't rate the hotel on booking.com - shabby room and furnitures - "bathroom" only about 1.3x1.3m², so there is no real shower in it,...

Hotel Souvenir exceeded our expectations! Hotel owner speaks English so it was easy to communicate with him. Room price for us was really low (32 euro/night) and our spacious room had big clean bathroom, hair-dryer, clean towels, microwave, TV, fridge, big closet and it was really nice decorated. The first night we arrived, owner gave us a nice Tuscan wine!...

Me and my girlfriend arrived to the hotel after 11pm so long after check in time. It turned out that the owner was still around and he not only checked us in, but gave us a far better room that we actually booked. We paid 70€ for two nights. So 17.50€ each per night! For this price the room was...

We got to the hotel about about 3:30 and no one was there to let us in. The door was locked and although we stood there and rang the bell for 1/2 an hour no one responded. We had to make other arrangements and are now staying at another hotel. The Souvenir hotel entrance is disgusting and dirty...I can't imagine...
