The bedroom was clean though shabby. The shared bathroom was clean also. Communal areas were awful. The owner is unreliable. You can stay in wonderful places in Florence for the same price. My advice is stay elsewhere.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
