This place is awesome. On our Euro Trip we were used to taking the metro to the places we wanted to see, but not this one. You are in the middle of everything! The room was great and the price was affordable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a map and started circling all the must-see...

The location was great. It's around the corner from one of the main streets for restaurants/bars and a few minutes walk from the major sights (Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, etc.) The area is very safe and the room/bathroom is clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was no kitchen, but there was a table and fridge in the...

I stayed in the girls dorm for 4 nights. It's an awesome location, 5 mins from all the major stuff in Florence. Rooms are fine, clean and heated! Wifi is good as well. The staff (a lovely Italian girl) were very helpful in showing me where to go! Only one bathroom and you pay €2 euros for a towel (for...

This was the best hostel I have stayed at. Great location in an awesome city. Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. The hostel had a lot to offer from day tours, to bikes to getting to see traditional florentine sites.Wonderful atmosphere.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
