    Staff spoke English, were helpful and provided excellent breakfast. Close to train station. Good restaurants nearby.

    Beds very narrow and uncomfortable. Bathroom excessively small. Location fairly nnear Accademia (David) but not so good for Uffizzi and others. Most sites and Ponte Vecchi at least a 20 minute walk.

    Very good location and value.

    Hotel would benefit from some routine, low level maintenance. E.G. window shutters could not be locked shut but could be fixed with basic tool kit; very nice public terrace but several chairs broken etc

    It was convenient because I attended a meeting within walking distance

    The location was excellent, and some of the staff were helpful. Compared to hotels in Florence, the price was reasonable.

    The room was dirty - carpet was old and covered in grime in any spot that was not immediately accessible with a vacuum cleaner, e.g. under the raised edges of the chest of drawers. The room had an unpleasant smell, and the hairs of the previous occupant(s) adorned the toilet in the bathroom. There were frequent altercations in the lobby between staff and unhappy guests. We asked for a room change and they said they would come back to us. They didn't.

    Ugly position of the hotel, ugly room meaning that we paid superior double room and we stayed in an extremely small room.

    well, when I reserved hotel from Booked.net, it was said that it has free internet in lobby as most of the hotels, but when I arrived there, they said no it is a mistake of Booked.net and you should by the internet for 7 Euro per night!!! also about the air condition system, it was always on, and I can't switched it off, the room was like winter. I reserved the double room, but there was 4 bedrooms in my room!!! it was funny!!! also the wc flush wasn't work well and the room was not that clean.

    Although the decor was dated in the rooms, it was comfortable and the staff were helpful. We appreciated a place to store our luggage for free before our flight on the last day as well as a discount voucher for the restaurant across the road. The shutters on the windows were great for blocking out street noise and the air conditioning in each room was good, although a little loud.

    Had to pay for internet access $7 for 24 hours, which expired 24hours after log in, rather than giving you 24 hours of internet access (found a cafe around the corner that had free wifi which was helpful). One room had no shower curtain which was inconvenient.

    Very convenient location Staff was helpful and allowed us to store our luggage. Breakfast was decent

    Our bathroom SMELLED like saurkraut! The facility was hot and felt dirty. Air conditioning was not functional. There were teenagers in the rooms around us and the walls were thin. The kids were noisy - so we got NO sleep! Bed was very hard.
