    Fabulous

    The hotel front desk man was very kind and helpful.

    On the second floor, in my room there was a vent in the ceiling that I did not like. You could see inside this vent. I think the hotel covered it so that no one could see inside, but the fact that it was there was not nice.

    Superb

    Very spacious and clean rooms.Staff was very helpfull and breakfast was good. The location of the room is quite good. It only takes 3-4 minutes walking to the bus stop and then 5 minutes ride with the bus. If you are young you can walk to the center if you like. Closed secure parking for my motorcycle was also a plus.I had a great time.

    I think the aircondition is centrally handled for all the rooms.I would prefer to be able to handle the aircondition from my room especially during the hottest days of my stay. But still was ok most of the times.

    We found this hotel has friendly and helpful staff, a good breakfast, tight but perfectly adequate parking and is an easy 20 minute walk in to the centre of Florence. The rooms were clean and spacious.

    Our first room was near the rather noisy air conditioning system which was on from 7am to 10pm. The next day we were moved to the first floor which was much quieter but unfortunately the sound of the lift reverberates through that part of the building. Not a major problem but worth mentioning.

    20 minitues walk away from train station. Easy to find a bus to city center. The young lady in the reception is very nice.

    Heavy somke smell in the room. Old furnitures.

    Superb

    The breakfast is very complete, good coffee. The staff was extremely friendly, kind and helpful. Check in and out without any problems. Clean sheets and towels everyday. The building is a little old, and the walls are thin, but the place is quiet and very clean and the beds comfortable. The neighborhood is also nice and quiet and has some very good restaurants. We stayed five nights and we are really happy about the experience! And the price was also very good!

    The hotel is about 20 minutes walking from the center. We found it a very pleasant experience, because you get to see a part of Florence that is out of the touristic zone, but for other people maybe annoying. Then again you have a lot of bus stops next to the hotel and for less than an euro you can be in the center in no time.

    The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable.

    Helpful staff, clean room, good breakfast

    Don't take room on ground floor, very noisy! We were next to the living room, and annoyed by people talking aloud at night and the tv in it. we got difficulties in falling asleep every night. other minor troubles: the double-bed is too small; bathroom small too and weak shower discharge; poor light in the room; we got lost for the first time of getting off the bus N.22 at St Iacoponi, finally we noticed the last bus stop called Scalatti is closer.
