Me and my 2 friends were visiting Florence for 3 nights on a girly break. We arrived at Hotel Bavaria after walking with our cases from the train station. 10 minutes ish walk which may not appeal to some but we managed. I imagin it would be very simple and cheap to get a taxi if you didnt fancy the walk.
Yes there is several flights of stairs to go up with ur bags when u get there but its hardly an inconvenience. The owner offered a warm welcome, sat us straight down and pointed out on the map the best sites to see while we were there and was very accommodating when we asked to have breakfast slightly earlier the next day as we had a trip planned.
The room we stayed in was a triple, offering a double bed and a single bed with a shower cubicle and sink. The room was very big with high ceilings and paintings on the wall, very clean and really good for the price. There wasnt a toilet in the room but there was a clean shared toilet at the end of the corridor. The only downside which I will mention is although there are 2 fans in the room there is no airconditioning so was very hot at night so our sleep quality was affected.
The breakfast was basic but started us off well for a days sightseeing. The hotel is perfectly placed to reach all the sights in florence by foot. Id recommend walking up the steep hill to Piazzale Michelangelo, definately worth the hard work as the view across florence is one not to be missed!! (especially at sunset). We also went on The Best of Tuscany Tour (Reviews on this are on this site) which was fantastic and ideal for seeing a chunk of Tuscany in a short space of time.
Overall reasonable priced, clean comfortable accommodation.
