Great place (for the price)
Friendly staff for a very pleasant stay very close to the center of Florence and near the station. Lovely details, like historical photos of Florence, pleasant little terrace to have breakfast, and very nice interior structure, such as nooks and crannies. I would stay there again.

Wonderfully cute hotel
The Tourist Hotel is as perfect a local and cute hotel as you could get. The staff was amazing, especially the wonderful lady who serves breakfast and is also a housekeeper. She was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is right off a Piazza and is a prime location for walking everywhere. The room was comfortable and very clean. Our room had a small balcony that was perfect for morning coffee.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend
We really enjoyed our stay here. It is family run and everyone is incredibly nice and helpful. It is also decorated quite charming. The location is out of Venice but is very easy to reach by bus. It rained hard the day we were headed into Venice and we were all offered weather tips and umbrellas. Thanks! The room was clean and we were quite comfortable. The quality of service is friendly, helpful, and they go the extra mile with a smile. While much of the staff was able to speak to us in English (appreciated as our Italian is limited) some of our hosts did not, however we still understood each other and had a wonderful time 'conversing'. The breakfast is fantastic and served restaurant style. We would stay here again. The only thing we didn't love about it was we had specifically requested non-smoking and when we arrived our room did have some lingering smoke odor. Perhaps this had drifted up from the courtyard, but it did smell like it was from the room. However, we aired the room out and did not notice it the second day. Oh, and they have an African Grey Parrot would can hang out and chat with if you like. :) Thanks.

Good Service And Location, But Very Basic
The location of the hotel is great. Near the main train station and all the main sights are walking distance. The staff was very nice and polite. The person at the front desk was very friendly, helpful and courteous. The room was spacious and, along with the bathroom, clean. There was also a small balcony which was nice, but no view other than the hotel next door. For a solo visit where I didn't spend that much time in my room, it served its purpose. Unfortunately, there were a few things lacking, which is the reason for the rating. The décor in the room was "quaint", but a bit tired. No refrigerator. The bathroom was small, but manageable. However, the towels were weird. The walls are pretty thin. Anyone talking in the hallway or talking in the next room can be heard quite clearly. My main gripe was the WiFi. I had to try and pick up another room's signal, which was weak. Even when I could get a connection, it might as well not work. I had to try and pick up other non-password protected WiFi instead, which you can from the breakfast room. Breakfast was included with the room, but it was very simple. The breakfast is more a convenience than a selling point. I only had it once as I was hungry but skipped it the other days I was there. If you are just looking for a place to sleep in a very good location and friendly service, this is it. But if you want more from your hotel, look elsewhere. However, hotel prices are not cheap in Florence.
