“Clean, cheap, basic, great location. But a bit noisy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2011

If you're just looking for a place to rest your head at night and not expecting to spend any time in your room, this is the place. It's very clean, cheap and basic. Mary and her son are very nice and accomodating. And the location is unbeatable, just minutes from the train station, near Santa Maria Novella and all the sights. However the noise from the street below does travel up and even with the windows closed, it's still pretty noisy. Otherwise, a great budget place to stay while in Florence.

Stayed April 2011, travelled solo

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2008

Stayed in Mary's House for five nights. Rooms and bathrooms are very simple but very clean. (There is a fridge and is close to the supermarket but no jug/TV/internet.) The bathrooms are shared and there is a lot of hot water. The owners are extremely friendly which made a nice change.

The location is very central - close to the train station and only a short walk from the main shopping areas and galleries. However some of the rooms over the street are quite noisy as there is a pub on the street below the building.

Would recommend for people who are looking for an affordable short stay.

  • Liked — Friendly staff, location and cleanliness
  • Disliked — Lacked some facilities
  • Stayed October 2008, travelled with family
