    Great

    The proximity to the museums and other places we wanted to see was fantastic!! The staff was so nice.

    Some of the staff speak very little english so communication was a little tricky. However, the staff was extremely nice and we ended up calling the older man Papa Firenza.The room did have a somewhat musty smell

    Central to attractions and friendly staff made the stay very pleasant.

    It was within walking distance to train station and the main tourist attractions.

    The breakfast was less than expected. Just cereal, fruit, croissant, and juice. No meat or cheeses.

    Ac was not cool, Internet did not work in rooms, had to buzz someone to get in (guess that is a reflection on the area of town). Breakfast area was cramped and uncomfortable. Bathroom shower was a shower head in corner of bathroom with curtain (not even a waterproof shower curtain), with every shower the entire bathroom would be wet (including the sink, toilet, toilet paper...)

    Very good

    Staff were fantastic and the location in the heart of Florence was excellent. Very small rooms but very good value for money. Breakfast was cheap and cheerful and the room smelt due to humid bathroom.

    Rooms too tiny but good cheep hotel for one or two nights overall

    Great

    The location was great - less than ten minutes walking from the train station even with luggage. It was also really easy to walk to all the major sites. We realized very quickly that nothing in Florence is really far away. There was a sweet little old man at reception when we arrived in the evening to get us checked in. Younger staff during the day was very helpful and easy to talk to. Breakfast was fine - good cappuccinos, and one time when there wasn't a table for us near the end of breakfast, the man working behind the desk brought us food to our room so we wouldn't have to wait and said not to worry about the time window.

    Large beds

    Midnight staff does not speak English. Wifi is incredibly difficult to get onto inside your room and you must have a wifi card to access it. Breakfast area is quite small. Walk to train station is nearly 10 minutes, not 5.

    Very good

    Good value for money in the expensive city of Florence. We got a nice and quiet double room facing a courtyard. The hotel is not particularly big or fancy but the staff is friendly and the facilities are perfect for people like us spending most of the time exploring the city and countryside, anyway.

    Nothing really, but (preferably free) internet in the room would of course have been nice, especially since the first half of the stay was related to attending a computer conference.

    Perfect

    I have stayed in several of Florence's budget two star hotels and do like this one the most for several reasons: 1) It has free wireless internet which I have not had anywhere else, 2) It is centrally located behind the Mercato Centrale yet still in a quiet street (not always straightforward in this city), 3) The staff is very helpful and speaks English well, 4) The breakfast has fresh breads, fresh fruits and fresh yoghurt (also quite exceptional at this level) 5) They have real proper bathtowels, not those thin flimsy ones often found in other 2* hotels. Overall a good hotel, very clean rooms, good bathroom etc..

    Well, I found the pillow a bit hard, but that is personal taste I suppose.

    Nice

    The best thing was the family maintaining the hotel and their willingness to help and assist. The old man was serving breakfast in very courteous manner as well as was ready to help (he gave me one plate to use as ash tray for smoking). :)

    The shower's door was a bit open and water was going on the floor of the bathroom.

    Proximity to Firenze SMN station and touristic places. Free wifi.

    The hotel staff at night could not speak English at all. Rooms were very dirty and there was a big bug inside the bed...the breakfast room (or space) was very tiny and not comfortable to enjoy your morning coffee at the beginning of your day.
