The 2-star hotel with old doors and windows. Despite these facts, it's charming! It locates not far than 15-minute walk from Duomo and all sightseeings are available by foot. Also, the staff is ready to provide you with all necessary information, maps and so on.

Quaint hotel with a great location and good value for money. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They would call us a taxi whenever we needed. Breakfast was adequate. Croissants, cake, juice, cereal and yoghurt. However, you have to pay for a any coffee but at a reduced rate of Euro 1.50 The room was pretty large, however the walls...

The hotel is too expensive for what you get. Breakfast could be much richer. Though it's situated in 15 minutes walking distance from Florence center. Nice local restaurant is just near the hotel which serves pizza, pasta with seafood.

We asked for extra coffee at breakfast and was told that was available but only for an extra cost of 3 Euros!! That was on top of the 55 Euros we paid for B&B! Wi-Fi is very sporadic in the outside area and inside, dropping constantly.

This hotel was a huge disappointment and a big scam. When we booked the room, we realized that it does not look great in pictures, but I never imagined that such a room can be rented. When we arrived, the first thing we thought was very strange was that we were asked to pay for registration, before seeing the room....
