    Fair enough to tell us that the location is 20 minutes from the old town

    Dirty room, fungus in bathroom, didn't have the professionnalism to empty the garbage from custumers before. Don't worry, I'm not a competitor, I have enough pictures to show you!!! Total rippoff, definitly not a 3 or 4 star hotel

    Very good

    Nice hotel especially for the price. Staff are helpful and nice, breakfast is rich and fresh. I had a single room and the bed is extremely small for the space available in the room. They could do with a single bed a bit more wide.

    Fabulous

    Easy to get to the location, decent very basic breakfast, single room was small but comfortable.

    Was charged for having a guest sit at breakfast with me, was not informed of a €9 per day breakfast charge for guests until checkout. Which is an expensive charge anyway for a the limited breakfast provided.

    Good breakfast buffet and service.

    I had booked the room and the parking post 2 weeks before arriving at the hotel. When I arrived the woman in the reception could not find my name on the reservation, and she didn't know about my reservation of the parking, although they had answered positively 2 weeks before from the hotel . One night I left with my car from the hotel to go out and when I returned the man on the reception told me the parking was now full... (!!!) Also the hotel is situated far from the center, it took me one hour and 2 different buses in order to return... I believe that for this value of money there are better hotels to stay to, in Florence, except if you are not in Florence for tourism and want to stay near that area of the city.

    Good

    The beds were extremely comfortable!

    Tthe selection of television channels were poor - there were only two options in English! Also, the location was very dire - it took us nearly 3 hours to find our way home from the town one night, in the dark!
