This hotel is not central. On checking in we were told of a ridiculous Firenze Tourist Tax of four euro per night per person. The reception staff were indifferent and at times rude, it seemed that when you needed to find out information it was a real effort for them. The bar is rarely manned and we had to ask repeatedly for service at reception. The breakfast is nothing special, you have to ask for coffee and the staff in the breakfast area were also very unhelpful. Heaven forbid if you asked for a second cup of coffee, you got a scowl of disapproval. The bedrooms are also nothing special, the ones we had were small and the bathroom had a sliding door and constant smell of sewage which was rather off putting. If I came back to Florence I would not stay here again and there are no good places to eat nearby.
