Just returned from a three week vacation in Europe visiting six different cities. This hotel was by far the best value we found. You really can't beat the location - right between the Duomo and Piazza delle Signoria. The place was very clean and quaint. It is certainly not a luxury hotel, but for the price and location it can't be beat!

Stayed: September 2011, travelled as a couple

Gorgeous little B&B in the middle of Florence, just a 10min walk from the central station or a 5min taxi costing apx 8euros. The hosts were brilliant, showing us maps of Florence and marking all the main sights and markets, even helped carry our luggage to our room and made sure we knew how to use the keys etc. We had a double room with our own shower, but shared toilet - very clean. The hotel is on the second floor of a neat old building, which has no elevator, so you do need to lug your bags up a few flights of stairs. There was a little supermarket just down the road, which sold amazing sandwiches freshly made for only 2.50euros. We became regulars there! Breakfast was typically Italian, continental style with cake and dry toast etc. Our room was a tad noisy during the night due to a leaky sink, but not too bad. Overall it was a really pleasant stay and we would definitely go back. We paid apx 55euros a night for a double room with shared bathroom, but upgraded to have our own shower for an extra 20euros total for the 3 nights (worth it in my mind, as it was clean and you knew only you were using it). We would recommend Bavaria to couples and families on a short stay in Florence.

Great location, great price
Room tidy, and fairly clean. Small, but you don't need more!
Didn't have any problems with shared restroom, though tiny.
Wifi only in lobby, not in rooms.
Cabbed from the train station (maybe $10), but it's an easy 15-20 min walk.
There are stairs, so be ready for it!

I love my hotel here in Florence, I got it at a steal. I'm definitely in the cheap and cheerful room, but it's got a double bed and has a little sink and has the most glorious exposed beam ceiling. The building is a sixteenth century palace (how cool is that?) and the hotel is very central. It's a 10-15 minute walk to the train station, a 5 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and 1 minute walk to the Duomo. The wifi works best out in the common area, not in the rooms but that's OK. Only real negative is no elevator, but hey, it's a sixteenth century palace, what do you expect?
