No real complaints here. It is central, it's cheap, the staff are excellent. The room was large enough, but tired. There are cracked tiles and missing grout in the toilet. The bath tube also had the hand basin & mirror in it. The upper rooms are accessed by a suspect tiny spiral staircase - extremely difficult with luggage.

Just like the title says this place is all about location. It's within walking distance of all the major sites (Duomo, cathedral, battistero, etc.) and the train station. You seriously won't have to spend a dime on transportation while you are there (unless you want to). Besides that the hotel is just average and isn't anything spectacular. It can also...

This is hard to find, but worth the effort. A short walk from the train station and right beside the Medici Chapel. Look for the discount 99 cent store. You're there! Friendly family run establishment with simple, clean, comfortable rooms - right in the center of everything.

This unpretentious and practical hotel was immaculately clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel could not be better located as it is only about five minutes from the station, the main sights, the city market and on a lively and lovely piazza. The breakfast was simple but generous and more than enough. We were here...

The hotel is 1 star located at piazza Aldobradini just 200 metre from Firenze SMN (main station). The problem starts from here as it's difficult to locate the hotel even if you are in piazza. The place is no board outside. Needs a bell once you locate the big door and then have to wait for the door go open....

Located very close to train station and not far from all the famous attractions. Very friendly staff, breakfast is poor, but still well to be a cup of coffee with something. Small, but comfortable rooms with shower inside. Pretty quite place even it is almost center.

This is a no frills place with basic amenities only. We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the Santa Maria Novella railway station. It is in a great location with many of the major sights just a short walk away. Staff were friendly. Breakfast is standard Italian, not great, only croissants and dried...

It took me for a while to find the hotel since Google Map didn't locate it very accurately. It ended up I asked another hotel to get the directions. This hotel's location is pretty good! It is not far from the train station and very close to Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower. Our room has a private bathroom....

My fiancé and I spent 15 minutes walking around trying to find this place - there are no signs and our GPS could not pinpoint it. While it's relatively close to the main train station and a central location within Florence, it is located in a small square and it is easy to overlook it as there is nothing to...

Close to the train station right in the middle of the market plaza by a cathedral. You push a button and an enormous wooden door opens then an enormous wooden gate. Then you just keep walking up the stairs until you see a door for the front desk. Despite the central location it was quiet. We did have to climb...
