Nice place in the middle of everything! Aldo... We love you.

Great stay - Can't beat the price for location, comfort, security. Marco was very accommodating with regard to adjusting rooms, providing info, offering a.m. food. He stored our luggage on the last day until we were ready to take the train out. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station, bus station, Central Market, ATMs, and countless restaurants. The place was quiet too, although bear in mind that we were there in mid-Nov, so starting to go off-season.

You can’t judge a book by its cover
The hotel occupies one floor of a four or five storey building. The building exterior is shabby so the very nice, obviously recently renovated room was a relief. Hotel is clean. All the staff we encountered were helpful and spoke English.

Great location with a lift and aircond
Lift was a great plus. Perfect location within stone's throw from station. Helpful staff.

Very close to the train station. Grocery store almost in front. Downstairs lobby as inviting as a jail in 1930. But hotel reception is okay. I had a very small room that smelled musty. Had to buy an air freshner. No view. Could not reach the hangers in the wardrobe and I am 5'4". Wardrobe felt like it would come apart if I was touching it. There was a safe and a small fridge in the room. Staff was helpful. Coffee not too bad for a vending machine.

Staff was extremely helpful in orienting us to destinations and routes. They were willing to store our bags as we went on our tour. Room was not overly large, but very comfy. Great location close to the train station. Highly recommend.

Old but good location
The hotel is just 5mins walking distance from the Firenze Santa Maria station. The sign is on the wall outside a building which houses a few hotels. Just look out for the sign on the wall. The building is old and the room is dated although they have renovated the bathroom. Good size for 3 persons in a triple room and the beds are comfortable. Room is clean. They have a mini cafeteria if you want to have snacks and breakfast can be sent to the room with prior notice. They also have washing machine although we didn’t make use of it. However, for almost €130 (including city tax) per night I would look for a newer hotel

ホテルというよりは、アパートを借りて住む感じです。そういう感覚を楽しめる方におススメです。 部屋はとても清潔に保たれています。ちょっと消毒剤匂いがきついので、鼻が敏感な方には向かないかもしれません。 受付の方の応対はとても感じが良く素晴らしかったです。

역에서 매우 가까운게 장점. 호텔 입구 찾는게 조금 어려웠고 엘레베이터가 매우 좁아 여러명 타기는 어려움. 거ㄴ물 아느로 드러가면 이러ㄴ데 호텔이 잇나 시픈데 외부에 ㅂㅣ해 방은 3성급 다른 숙소와 다를것 없이 괜찮았음. 가격대가 저렴한 만큼 생수는 유료로 제공됨.
