Reviewed 19 April 2016

The apartment we stayed in was light , airy and spacious .It was the ideal base for a few days exploring Florence as it was centrally placed and within walking distance to the main places of interest. It was well equipped with a kitchenette , bed and seating area and bathroom.Very good value and made our stay in Florence all the more enjoyable.

Room Tip: If possible choose a room away from the road as these are quieter

Two friends and I went to Florence for the weekend and found this spot to be good vale for money. No frills. Basic accommodation. Rooms were very clean. Plenty of fresh towels. Helpful staff. Good location as it was a short walk to wards the Duomo and Piazza San Lorenzo. We were out all day and spent little time there but the beds were comfortable. Aircon, while not very cold, was still very comfortable and provided some relief from the August heat! Free wifi and within walking distance of Kitch for aperitivo in the evening. Would recommend if you are looking for something safe, central, clean and reasonably priced.

Stayed here for one night in February and due to the decent reviews and cheap price we decided to opt for locanda gallo.

The location was very good, 5 mins from duomo and many other sites. Many nice restaurants/bars nearby.

However, the place is hard to find, and we took about 15 mins of walking around the same road to find it. We then checked in by trying to speak to the receptionist/cleaner who couldnt speak English so ended up having to wait 10 mins for the English speaking colleague to help.

We then left our bags in the reception and were advised that they will be in the room when we return from being out. We then returned to our room at about 7PM to find our bags were not in the room and had to call someone (outside the hotel) to come and open the reception to let us get our bags, this took around half an hour but wasnt too much of a big deal.

The room was very basic, and had a very small 'window' which was covered with vents and looked out to the stairwell of the hotel. The room was NOTHING like the pictures shown. We were on the top floor room so maybe we were unlucky with the room we were given? Furthermore the bed didnt feel particularly clean and made us feel quite itchy. The shower and toilet was very small and the fridge/cupboards were untidy and smelly.

During the night, there was an intermittent buzzing sound going on every hour or so which meant we had to sleep listening to headphones and waking up every hour or so.

Only reason I have given 2 stars is due to the good price we paid but in future, I would undoubtedly pay more to stay somewhere more comfortable.

Room Tip: not the top floor on the right!

It definitely exceeded our expectations in terms of interior design! It was modern, bright and spacious, especially for what you pay for! Our room even had a little mini fridge and plenty of plug sockets. The bathroom (specifically the shower) was amazing! The location is ideal. Quiet at night but within 5 minutes of walking distance to the Duomo and town centre. Plus the street that the hotel is located on has a wide variety of good restaurants, cheap supermarkets or 99cent stores and other useful and interesting shops, such as internet café's, hairdressers, art café's etc. Also the owner was incredibly friendly and helpful, giving us a map and showing us all the useful/interesting places to go. I would highly recommend this hotel!

This place is within walking distance from the train station. The location is actually perfect, because it's on a quiet street, but you can easily walk to any place in Florence. I was surprised to find that the room was very large and nicely decorated. Very clean. It exceeded my expectations for sure. Our room even had a small kitchen area which we were not expecting. I don't think you can find better value for money. I would stay here again next time I'm in Florence.
