The building's stairwell admittedly has a bit of a smell that could be off-putting, but the hotel rooms themselves are simple and clean, and the owner is very friendly. A fine value for budget travelers.


I loved the location of this hotel. Everything was super close and easy to get around, especially the touristy stuff. The staff was very friendly and helped us with finding things within Florence.


Don't know what to say except when I entered it was sketchy but they moved us to another hotel down the road because he overbooked. He was nice but obviously because he made a mistake, was glad he did though cuz the other spot was a lot nice and they upgraded our room free of charge


Well located close to the station and within walking distance to the main attractions (we essentially walked the hop on hop off tour within 2 hours). Be warned that the entry to the hotel requires a hike up 3 floors (there is an elevator but it appeared a bit dodgy) and some rooms require a further climb. The staff are friendly and welcoming but unfortunately this doesn't quite compensate for poor cleanliness of the bedrooms, although they are quite spacious.

Room was a decent size. We did notice as our stay progressed that there were more and more hairs on the bathroom floor that didn't belong to us. They do have air conditioning, however, every time we turned it on the room smelled strongly of old cigarette smoke. The provided breakfast was alright, although on two separate occasions we found both rotten fruit and a dead caterpillar stuck to some of the toast. Our stay was tolerable, and the owner is very friendly, but I'd look elsewhere next time.
