2/10 Poor

Florence 2 nights
I booked a room with private bath, but, when arrived had to insist on it as they had me in without one. Took much longer to get to any of sights than listed on line. Traffic noise so loud at night I couldn't sleep. I went next door for coffee and bakery goods, instead of coffee from machine and commercially packaged items served. Staff was helpful.

Good place to stay, if you consider the distance
A bit away from the center (~30min bus ride), but an excellent stay overall. Nice staff, good breakfast.

8/10 Very good

Hotel staff was very good and facilities are nice
I am happy to give this review. I was there for five days. The staff is co-operative. only the problem is with language. I would like to suggest the hotel owner that there should be staff with more fluency in English language.The same will help your hotel business positively. Thanks

4/10 Fair

Pensione degli anni 60
Albergo vecchio con arredamento vintage, sembra una pensione di qualche decennio fa. La colazione inclusa era pessima: caffè del distributore, due tipi di merendine confezionate da discount, qualche fetta biscottate e marmellatine. Camera fredda, termosifoni accesi solo la sera. La mattina si gelava. Pessimo rapporto qualità/prezzo. A favore la posizione a 15 minuti a piedi dall'ospedale Careggi, la pulizia e la cordialità del personale.
