Location, with a 10 min walk you are at SMN station. You can basically do anything on foot (which is ideal for Florence).
For the price paid, I expected more. The room (and overall hotel) is dark, we can't fully open the windows because the people in the terrace could see right at our room. The room has a smell of mold and old. The breakfast (6 euros per person) is bare minimum. Only one salty option (a hard bread) and all other options are sweet (I fear for people with diabetes). The shower is small (expected for Europe) but the water accumulates while you take your shower, so your feet is constantly under a few inches of water. No elevator. If you are someone with disability, don't book this hotel.
Very clean. Small bathroom and room but great value. Walking distance to trains and duomo and everything in that area.
The street noise is to be expected in downtown Florence.
The location and breakfast were fine. The manager was nice and tried to meet our needs.
The air conditioning: The problem was the air conditioning was turned off by the hotel because the manager felt it was cold outside (upper 70's). He told us to open the windows. We were on the second floor. It was around 85 degrees on the second floor. It took over two hours to cool the room down to a comfortable level. Also the street is busy and noisy. We did not sleep well with the window open and the street noise. Once the window was able to be shut the room became quiet enough and maintained its coolness.
It’s super close to both the Duomo and the Santa Novella train station.
The rooms are impossibly small, no windows and thus almost no sunlight. There are small shared balconies but because of that I couldn’t sleep due to my neighbor’s shouting. The housekeeping was very loud at 7 am, banging about. The price is high and all for the location, however it felt like a detention room rather than a hotel room.
View onto scaffolding for next property, however not in room that much! Shower a bit small
