We were welcomed by a very friendly lady who explained everything and showed us the best places to visit on the map. Our room was small but clean. There are shared bathrooms in this hotel, but some rooms (including ours) have a small private bathroom with a shower and a toilet. Wifi reception was good. The only downside was the...

I have no negative things to say about this hotel; It is in a fabulous location (5 minutes max walking from the Duomo and in the other direction 5 minutes max from Santa Maria Novella Station), the gentleman at the desk was extremely helpful and kind, and the included breakfast was good (similiar what you expect from Italian breakfasts). The...

Room was very comfortable. Good size, Nice bathroom. Windows are modern that block street noise well but can be opened for ventilation. Only a short walk to the main cathedral. Do not miss the Medici Chapel that is literally across the street. Located just a few blocks from the train station.

Located in a very convenient central part of Florance. Near Medici chapel and the train station!!! This is a family owned hotel and the service shows it - they are very polite and helpful. The rooms are always clean. They are available 24/7 at the desk. Optional breakfast if you want. I want to mention Lavinia especially for being extremely...

Location couldn't be better (every time I got lost I just had to look for the dome). Fair price, simple rooms but that's all you'll need in Firenze. Try to stay in a room with bathroom, but if you want to stay in a room with shared bathroom it's OK too, just a little tiny. Oh, and forget about the...

My adult son & I booked two rooms with ensuite, with advice from Rick Steves' guidebook. My daughter joined us later & could only get a room with shared bath. The rooms were well worn but clean & simple & the lovely shutters opened out onto a little piazza. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Security was superb. We...

Very good value for money, rooms were really clean, friendly staff and the hotel is very central. The hotel offers a decent continental breakfast. Restaurants are very close, and minuets away from the Duomo and the museums. I recommend this hotel and will book the same hotel I visit Florence again

We booked this hotel because of its location, right in the center of Florence. Train station, Duomo, Bell Tower, restaurants, market place everything was within walking distance from the hotel. The Hotel was basic but clean and convenient. We got the room which has the view of the Duomo. Basically, if you are not looking for luxury but just a...

Was there last September -- see my comments on why I would not give it a 5 for the pension category Hotel Lorena is in. But all good -- I chose Hotel Lorena because it was recommended in Rick Steves guidebook as low cost lodging with a great location for walking to everything. Overall, was actually quite satisfied -- location...

The room we stayed and the shared bathroom was clean. The hotel owners made sure that the bathroom,even though shared is clean every now and then which is awesome. The reception is at the first floor of the building,so if you have a heavy baggage,it'll be a bit difficult The hotel owners are very friendly... The breakfast buffet was good....
