The room was really good, there is also an Haveli Indian restaurant which is also good with normal prices. The B&B had been just a few mins walk from Railway station.

Sicuramente soddisfatti...il personale molto disponibile sia nel l'accoglienza che nell'indicazione di possibili posti da visitare...lo consigliamo anche per la posizione in cui si trova,vicinissimo alla stazione ed altrettanto al centro

Posizione comoda sia per la vicina stazione (S.Maria Novella) sia per il centro città, raggiungibile a piedi, in 10 minuti. Camera e bagno molto spaziosi e recentemente ristrutturati. Ordinato e pulito. Peccato non offrano il servizio di colazione, che però può esser consumata a prezzi modici, in un bar nelle vicinanze. In sintesi, alloggio essenziale, ma decoroso, sicuramente un ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo.

Sobre todo quiero destacar la amabilidad y disposición del personal de recepción, que, por cierto, hablaba castellano, por lo que nos facilitó mucho las cosas. La habitación que usamos era preciosa y muy espaciosa. Disfrutamos mucho de nuestra estancia.

"Weak...Too expensive for what you get"
05/11/15 Maroca_Mari Milan, Italy
The pictures in the website/booking look way better than the actual place. The wifi connection does not work depending on where you're staying. It's close to the station and that's the only positive thing. I'd call it "weak". Not worth a second visit.

"Very nice"
02/02/15 Tayfun E
In town, museums and a great location with proximity to the station. 3 minutes into the river, 1 minute walk from the station, the price is fine performansiyla place. cleanliness and safety is the pain that you have a doubt. We pass on the outside after the big iron gates, you enter the apartment, then more and indicate a door, you have a relationship with a person you can rarely come across in all my life 😊 what they can do if you have never hang around without help without getting bored. even if you do not know your language, even doing translation. I met him, I say good on him 😉 room was the only room I lived in a shortage of cold, but Barbora's smiling face, and everything makes you forget the Keen on preserving both your palms. Thank you thank you for everything too. I would recommend arkadaslara wanting to go.

"The good and the not so good"
10/19/14 SophieCD
I stayed here for 3 night with a friend in October 2014. The good: very conveniently located- we could walk there in 5min from the train station with big suitcases (no need for buses/taxis) and relatively easy to find. The room was a good size, and clean with the room cleaned daily. Wifi worked well. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to walk to all the main attractions and restaurants within 10-15min (at a good pace). The not so good: advertised as bed and breakfast- there is no breakfast (to be fair- they do make it clear that they are a B&B without the &B). Very close to the train station- though the noise of the trains doesn't tend to be much of a problem at night. There is a nightclub directly across the road (backing onto the train station) and the walls are VERY thin. There was only one night (a saturday) where I was awake because of very loud music/drunken shouting/smashing glass until 4am, but otherwise it wasn't a major issue. As a place to sleep at night it was good (except on a Saturday when I would definitely NOT recommend) and it is very convenient.

"Don't even bother"
08/29/14 Evie-P33
It got off to a bad start when we couldn't find the B&B on the street, we retraced our steps to see to our horror we had booked a B&B run out of an old office block-no wonder we missed it the first time! The entrance is very dated and the rooms were not much better. The rooms were large and spacious however they were incredibly noisy from the road/bars beneath us. The area it is in is not the best right next to the main station- Florence is so small that you could book somewhere not that much further from the train station that is a lot better! You have 3 keys one of which opens the secure entry gate outside, it's certainly not somewhere id feel comfortable walking into late at night. It genuinely feels like you're walking into a deserted office block. However the guy that greeted us was very friendly and showed us the main sights to see on a map it's just a shame the rest let it down. I wouldn't stay here again.

"Quaint and charming"
08/19/14 Judy049 Burlington, Canada
This is a quaint, old-fashioned hotel that combines the old with the new. The old is comprised by the rooms, which are charming and roomy. We had a balcony which a had a nice view in one direction and a not-so-nice view of the courtyard which could use a good cleaning and some plants. However, it was most amenable to the large rabbit who lives there. The new is comprised of reliable wi-fi, good AC and a modern, marble bathroom. Our concierges Santiago and Michelle, were most helpful and welcoming. One of the best things about the Monnaclara is the location - within walking distance of the train station and all the relevant sights of Florence. We would stay there again.

"Could use some polish, but basically good"
08/15/14 dio1632 Boston, Massachusetts
The place is not attractive. From the outside it looks like a car park. From the inside the rooms look cheap. But look closer. The rooms are clean. The beds/mattresses are well made. The heat and AC work great. The plumbing and shower work perfectly. The rooms are near to the SMN train station in the center of the city. They could probably fetch a higher price for rooms if more effort was put into outward appearances. But I'm glad they didn't! They don't offer any breakfast, and won't change towels more than once every 3 days. But they give you a reasonable place from which to explore the city. There is a very convenient coin-op laundry a couple blocks away.

"Decent Stay - Helpful Staff"
07/16/14 PratapRajan Bengaluru (Bangalore), India
Location: This B&B is very close to Florence SM station and can be walked if you have medium sized suitcase. If you want to board a bus to Pisa Airport, you get it from Florence SM station entrance. Most of the day/evening tours starts from Florence SM station (Black Digital Clock near stairs) and is very close to the B&B. Rooms: Rooms are pretty big and spacious. Powerful AC to keep you cool in summers. Toilets are nice and clean. Interior decor looked little old style. General: The Checkin desk is not open 24 hrs. Make sure you check with the hotel if you are arriving late. On checkin, they give you a bunch of keys to access the gates at the entrance, the B&B door and finally your room key. Make sure check all the keys once when the staff is available. I had a problem in opening the B&B door at 11:45 PM and had no one around to help. I almost went to a point where I thought the key would break (my wife was pretty sure that I was using the wrong key or given the wrong key..); it opened. Safety at Night: This B&B is on the main road close to rail station and is well lighted. We walked back from one of the restaurant (30 mins walk) to the B&B at 11:15 PM and we felt safe all along.

"Very basic and will not go back"
06/19/14 dejonas
Located literally behind the florence train station, which is not a very nice area of florence in my opinion. just like any typical train station neighborhood. Its dirty, the station is filled with many beggars/homeless, and really I just want to get as far away as possible from the station. So its quite disappointing to find your hotel to be so close from of all these. The Building that this B&B is located is an old office building of maybe 5 floors or so, and they occupies half of the 1st floor (or less). Its very basic, small reception, and the rest are just doors leading to each rooms. The room we stayed at was room no 4, perfectly facing the main road which is ridiculously noisy at night time. It sounded like they have a club or something somewhere next to our room. although I never really saw one during the day. You can hear everything, from cars moving, buses, trains, and its just loud. Good thing is the room is quite clean. and wifi is working okay. the air con is not operational when we were there in May. Its very close to the station as i said, so its walkable and if you need a cheap place to stay over just to crash in maybe it ll do. walking to main tourist attractions is about 15 min. But sorry, I just have to say that I really hate that train station area and I would avoid staying in a hotel in the area anytime if I ever come back to Florence.

"Alright for a couple of nights but nothing special"
05/31/14 Sarah I London, United Kingdom
We were originally supposed to stay at Tourist House Duomo but as we were arriving past their check in time they transferred our booking here. It was ok but nothing great. It can get noisy being across the road from a club and near the train station and you need to use three keys to get into your bedroom from outside. Make sure you get there during check in hours as it can be costly.

"very bad experience"
05/20/14 2014Saha123 Kolkata (Calcutta), India
We stayed there for 3 nights.Its very costly and services were not up to the standard.It is also very noisy at the same time being adjacent to railway area.The main problem was managing 3 locks each time to enter/exit the hotel.receptionists stayed there only from 10 to 7 and there is no one at the entrance to guide you.at the 1st visit it was very difficult to reach the receptionist even we reach at the hotel.the hotel name is also confusion though they reveal in the beginning that there is no breakfast option. except this hotel everywhere in Italy, breakfast is included.This is to mention that everywhere in Italy there is a city tax to be provided for each person, each day of staying there.
