  • Couple
    5.8

    Extremely good value for 32 euro per night (mid November); free parking; free wifi; 250m from tram (No 1) into city centre (15 min); relatively large room (by European standards)

    Noisy, with construction work in adjacent building; continental breakfast was ordinary; staff communication was difficult, with one staff member even making ridiculing gestures at my partner's efforts to communicate that we needed to stay on in Florence an additional night; staff were not particularly helpful (except one young fellow) as they did not volunteer information on breakfast location and time, wifi connection and local map availability; room was cold with no remote for the air conditioning unit; CRT TV volume would turn off then back on for no apparent reason

  • Couple
    6.6

    Spaciness of the room .

    There is not much parking places and parking is small. Don't miss your place first You take it. Use public transport ( tram) is best. Public parking in Florence is real horror. They didn't changed uor sheets during 7 dany of stay. Breakfast is basic. Location is so so, 3 km from centre or 10min. by tram.

  • Couple

    old structure, if you want to sleep in the morning don't book this hotel, because they start the cleaning at 7-8 a.m. it's impossible to sleep too noise!

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was small and nice. The staff was very polite and kind.

    It's far from the center and the breakfast wasn't good at all. The parking lot is too small...If you want to get the parking place it's better to come back to the hotel early.

  • Group of friends

    Very easy to go to city center by tramway, nice breakfast

    When we arrive the guy at the reception remained slumped in his chair and didn't say hello...

  • Couple

    Smoke in room even conditioner did not cleaned it with its very high noise.

  • Family with children

    There was lots of mosquitos and other insects in the hotel. My daughter was biten alot and we bothered alot. In addition I had booked a room for 4 persons (Quadruple Room ) but they gave me one sofa bed and three other beds. That was totally unacceptable! The room and hotel pictures are not the same that I experienced in the hotel!

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    Hotel staff was really nice and helpfull. I choosed this hotel because it is located near highway.

    We had to change the room due to heavy smell of the smoke in the room. There are vbery thin walls-therefore lots of noise from the next room could be heard-hard to sleep.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    very clean room and kind and helpfull staff. great value for money.

    the room was very cold,we could not sleep first night and the heating system was not working.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    small breakfast area, limited space in the room, excellent price, tram station outside the hotel

    for the prices it offers it is a good hotel

  • Couple
    7.0

    Outside of town, so it was easy to get there by car. Convenient bus to city. Nice staff.

    Room's tidiness did not match the price. Shower was broke.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    close to metro and nice coffee

  • Couple
    5.4

    Free parking, free wi-fi, good location for a traveller with a car (you can leave a car in a free parking and catch a frequent tram to the city center for 1,20 euro), good price.

    Very bad breakfasts, small & unconvinient lift, staff is not very helpful.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Very good location, about 200 meters from the T1 tram station, which will take you in 8-10 minutes into the heart of the city

  • Single
    7.4

    Simple, worth its price. 20 mins by tram to the downtown or about an hour walking.

    It's pretty noisy and hot (ac only has "turn on-off" mode.
