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.

"Very disappointing"
Hotel is very hard to find. Check in is in 2nd floor of a housing building. Rooms are spread out through 2 different buildings. Staff is not very helpful. Building and rooms are very old. No Wi Fi but in the "lobby". If you rent a car, this is the worst hotel to park, not to mention extremely expensive. Took them 1 hr 30 min to bring the car from the parking. Almost missed my flight, staff didn't sympathize at all. They charged at the hotel, which was in Euros, so original price from Expedia, was much higher, and of course they added the European tax per night. Only good thing is that is very close to the Train Station. Good for just spending the night but very expensive for what you get.

"Alloggio a due passi dal 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.

"Very good experience."
04/21/16 PeterDe56 Colombo, Sri Lanka
A very good hotel in the city centre, The staff was very friendly especially Natalia, speaks very good English. She organized a day tour for us to the country side with a visit to a winery which included a wine tasting session.Very free to go in & out at any time since you are given a set of keys, one for the main gate, for the main door and for your room. The rooms were clean and was cleaned every morning. In case of an issue we could contact the staff easily by phone or whatsapp. The location is great since it's near the station and most tourist attractions within walking distance. Great experience. would come again always.

"B&B Monna Clara"
01/29/16 Giorgio C
The staff was very friendly. We got a set of 3 keys when checking in at the reception which closes at 20h00. So we were kinda independent, which is fun. In case of an issue we could contact the staff easily by phone or whatsapp. The location is great since it's near the station and most tourist attractions within walking distance. Great experience for a great price, would do it again.

"Really basic for the price"
01/01/16 Roger M
Location is good. Really close to the central station, and given the city size, near the center. No breakfast (so it's not a B&B, it's just a B) Reception from 8 to 20 Wifi is working fine in our room TV and fridge in room. AC and heating system. No atmosphere. Once this said, entrance is disappointing/depressive, not warm. It's a old office block. Our room was on the right side, facing inside so was quiet. Room was big, old fashioned, bed is in good condition, needs some renovation in general. Bathroom is basic too, sink, toilet, shower, no place for anything, need a good renovation. 100 euro per night aprox. Would be fine at half price.

"Good Location"
09/15/15 snarayan83 Mumbai
Pros 1. Good location. Approx 350m from SMN train station. One has to be very careful as it is very easy to miss out on the hotel as there is no board for the same. Hotel Arcadia is also in the same compound. You can search for the same 2. Spacious and clean rooms: Unlike other hotels in Italy, this one has a spacious room. The rooms were very clean and well managed. 3. On check in the staff mentioned about the directions and places to visit in Florence with the assitance of a map 4. Wifi: The entire hotel has Wifi access. The rooms as well Cons: 1. Breakfast not included 2. Staff unavailable after 8pm (But emergency number shared incase anything is required)

"Decent Hotel, Good Value for Money"
08/31/15 Pradeep M Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Located close to the Main railway station of Florence (Firenze S.M.N.) about 10 min walk. Though the hotel does not have a big signboard outside which makes it very hard to find. Apart from the initial problem with finding the hotel and the reception, everything else was fine. The guy at the reception greeted us and explained about the hotel and also gave a brief overview of the main attractions of the city. The room was decent size and the bathroom was okay. We stayed there for two days and did not have any problem whatsoever. The reception guy gave us his WhatsApp number so as to contact him if we need anything without paying for phone bills. That turned out to be very helpful when we had to contact him for umbrellas and he did reply promptly. Internet speed was good as against to other big hotels of our Euro trip. It was definitely worth the price.

For convenience this is a great spot to stay in Florence. We were greeted by a very enthusiastic reception staff member who was willing to step us through exactly what we should see during our stay. The wifi was also good and rooms were cleaned each day. However, the walls are quite thin so you could always hear the people near you coming and going during the night so not ideal if you are a light sleeper.

"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.
