Also needs updating but was cleaned thoroughly. Plenty towels. Breakfast was typical continental- good but coffee awful.

Hotel is walkable from station. The street is full of food joints. I stayed here for two nights. Room was spacious. However there were a few mosquitoes. Breakfast is good but limited options. Free Wi-Fi.

Hotel Rex is simple - I got a triple room - more than enough for a night sleep. Room has enough space to move around but the bathroom/toilet is so small. Bed - it is ok. The best thing about it is the location - very near main station Firenze S. M. Novella (just 10 minutes walk) and to the...

The best thing to say this hotel was close to railway station breakfast was sparse and coffee was horrible. Shower was a trickle and you dried yourself in the bedroom. Bring both types of power adapter as this hotel has the smaller 2 pin outlets. Most of the staff were very helpful No english channel on tv bbc cnn

The location of this hotel is very good and less than 10 mins walk from the main bus station. Also, there are restaurants, groceries and laundry services near the hotel. The room is dated but clean. The receptionist is very friendly and helpful. The internet connection is free but quite slow and unstable.

The location of the hotel was excellent for those wanting to explore too! The only complaint I have is the wifi was a little hit and miss, and I sometimes had to go into the lobby to...

We stayed in this hotel for five days. The beds were very uncomfortable and the mattresses kept slipping off the bed. The cupoboard was very tiny and there was hardly any place to keep our things. The wooden furniture in the room was in shambles. The breakfast was poor and the lady at the restraunt had a very cold attitude...

We stayed 3 nights here with 2 children (13 and 10) in a quad room in August. We asked for a quiet room which we got. The irish bar across the road could be heard all the way up the stairs but as soon as we closed our room door we couldn't hear it at all! The room and decor...

Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building.
