Lovely room and staff, no WiFi, no staff at night
Wonderful lady at check in (owner?) who kindly let me drop my bags in the room early. The cleaning staff was lovely as well. The room was as nice as the photos. It felt fresh, clean and safe, although a little bit cold at night. There is street noise, so if you’re noise sensitive bring earplugs. Sadly the WiFi didn’t work. This was a problem because I have to work on my computer every night. I checked in during the morning and when I came back at night in the rain, it was hard to find. I ended up going to the wrong hotel in the same building. Although it was only 8:30 PM, there was no answer at the hotel emergency phone number, so I was locked out for a bit, which wasn’t ideal as it was raining, cold, and at night. The code to enter the hotel didn’t work, but the key did, so I managed to get back in. I’m not sure what happened because the lady clearly pointed at the keypad and pointed at the code given to me. (She didn’t speak English) I’d suggest trying the keys and code with the staff before you leave, to be sure you can get back in. If you get back to the hotel after the office closes, and have a problem, you could be locked out all night, if no one answers the phone. Overall a lovely place and nice room. Just be aware of the above issues.

Could be better
Staff are nice. However, on our first day, we locked our door before leaving (I have definitely checked and am absolutely sure it was locked), when we returned, we found the door left ajar. On the second day, we came back to an unlocked door AGAIN, with a key left hanging on the door knob. This is absolutely unacceptable as we have our valuables left open to the public and not sure if anything was stolen. Told the staff but no proper explanation was given. Aside, the cleaning services was not properly done with necessities not replenished. The breakfast was good.

Nice room and location in Firenze
The room is very nice and location as well. It is just 15min walking from City center. I would have rates better if the room would have been prepared against mosquitos from the first night. The first night was a nightmare and I talk about it with the lady who appears fly was aware of this problem in the whole Firenze. If it was so, I would have appreciate to be prepared for the first night The positive point is that just after talk about it, they solved it and second night was perfect!

Very good 8.0
The hotel was a bit hard to find as it has big wooden doors and doesn’t look like a hotel Going upstairs didn’t give you a good feeling; however our room was spacious and clean even though basic. The ladies English was not very good but she tried, they offered complimentary breakfast which was a nice touch but unfortunately it was bread and more bread and more bread. Very high in carbs, no fruit very little cereal option.

I've stayed in lots of hotel / hostel, La Porta del Paradiso is by far my favourite, really clean, unique decoration, i love the living room, great value for money, awesome staff, I've met some really nice people passing through, i regularly recommend this place! Oops, btw, the breakfast and the snacks are free of charge and nice. I love it very much!
