Terrible old and dirty installations specially showers, really commercial brand of hostels
Restaurant was awesome and the pizza was delicious! Staff were really friendly! Good location in Florence!
The camping is about 30 minute walk from the train station, it is on top of a hill and the view to Florence is amaaazing! The tents were clean and good. You need to be in the restaurant/bar to charge your phone or use the wifi, which I think is common if you're staying at a camping, but you need to consider that anyway.
It seems very far away from everything when you take the bus, but its an easy 15 minute walk to Florence. It had great food to order and drinks. The atmosphere was fun an lively. Met some really nice people. The tents were well kept with clean sheets. If you dislike bugs though this may not be for you; however, it IS camping.
There are no powered sites, so in order to charge your devices you have to go to the bar area. The toilets and showers are filthy, and not maintained enough (ie) no toilet paper. There is also a niteclub next door that plays music until 4.30am and it's almost impossible to sleep. The staff are not very helpful either.
Fantastic views and great bar, best of all they really helped us out in an hour of need... Staff at the site were really understanding and sorted out the priblem, can't thank them enough or recommend the campsite! Stayed on 17th June 2014
The wifi, even though I paid for it, was not great in the wifi area. It would be better to have a faster connection .
The camping site locates in a great location, near the Piazzale Michelangelo and you can have a great view of the city from there. However, wifi is only available at the cafeteria and there is no wifi inside the tent. The staff required us to check out before 11am. Generally, the stay there is acceptable.

The campsite is fine, though we expected the standards to much higher after our experience in the plus camping in Venice. The facilities advertised were not all available and the staff were incredibly unhelpful, sometimes rude. Overall the site is not quite worthy of the 'plus' title.
Unfortunately there was no locker to lock your things up. The showers are not very clean and there is a lack of outlets to plug in devices to charge. I was eaten alive by mosquitos.
Was a great way of experiencing the city. Campsite close to an amazing view and an even better one if you climb up to San Miniato. Facilities could have done with an extra clean during the day
The camp was in a massive state of disarray. I think they were changing a lot of things but the staff led us to a place where there were no tents, and halfway through our stay they changed our tent number without informing us that tent 49 is now 15. Everything else was fine they just need to communicate better.
I stayed at Camping Michelangelo one night. The overall impression was fine, although what I enjoyed the most about the Camping is it's location. It's situated near the breathtaking panoramic view over the city,and somehow half an hour walk from the city center and Ponte Vecchio. When it comes to camping itself , i could only complain about the cleanliness, the bathroom was quite dirty,especially the showers. The tent itself was ok, but in the night it was quite noisy, because of the party.v
The bar was closed and there was no wifi. Showers were unclean. Tents are situated on the slope with poorly maintained stairways or just a grass hill to reach them so slipping is hard to avoid. the park was empty and was poorly at night time making it difficult to get back to your tent. Would not recommend staying here at all.
Absolutly terrible, all other PLUS hostels have been great but this is the exception. None of the facilities lister were availble, no wifi at all, no bar or restaurant, no market/shop and toilets/showers were disgusting. We were told wifi was being fixed but after 3 days of asking they confessed to having none, bar reataurant and market were under construction and toilets were unclean and never had toiletpaper, when requesting toilet paper it was never put up in. You will be eaten alive by bugs
