The room was clean,had a small fridge, had english sky channels which was great, although the aircon was not on due to local laws regarding this. We opened the window for fresh air and the room was full of mosquitoes within minutes. The first night was awful, we couldnt sleep due to the heat & mosquitoes, plus the noise of the guests next door, the walls are so thin that if we understood italian, we could have repeated what they were saying. Staff are not up to date with local knowledge; we were told we could buy bus tickets on the bus when we could not. The next night, we had to buy mosquito coils from the store across the road. Being that the hotel is aware of local laws regarding aircon & that there are mosquitoes, they should have mosquito coils in stock, having to buy them ourselves is unacceptable.WIFI was patchy at best. Overall, its ok and location in proximity to Florence is good. But dont expect 4 star service..
