Everything you need for a quick stopover
It is what it is - inexpensive, excellent location, friendly staff. The room is small and the bed isn't the most comfortable - but the AC worked and the room was clean. For the 1-night stopover we had in Florence, it was absolutely fine.

Balcony stay
Best 2 star you will ever stay at. Very central, 4 mins walk from the Duomo and no more than 10mins walk from all the major tourist spots. Helpful staff, easy to find and all in all very good value.

Florence
Hotel Balcony as advertised on Hotels.com had a separate living ares, this was not the case and when we queried this with the owners we were to rooms had never had a separate living area. The room we had was quite small.

Good 6.0
Typical hotel in Italy
This is a typical family run hotel in Italy...Not really designed as a hotel but repurposed as one with resulting shortcomings. A very small room with very thin walls, old but serviceable furniture, not much in the way of amenities but good for a short stay of one to two days. The TV is the size of my tablet and the bath fixtures are in need of updating. If you are given the rooms on the third level then hauling luggage might be a problem as well.

Very friendly staff, great location, and very clean. All the major sights and museums are an easy walking distance. The train station is very close, as was the Central Market where we found good shopping and great food.
