Exceptional10.0
Great room, great manager, but on the 3th floor.
It was very good and the manager could not have nicer. There are 4 women in our 60s traveling and he carried all 8 of our bags in and got us situated.

A simple but very nice hotel
It is a great location if you travel by train. It is just 5 minutes walk from Mercado Centrale with all the best food. The hotel is on the 3d floor without an elevator. The service is really friendly and nice. The family runs the business. All three of them (Rosario, Gabriella, and Marco) are extremely friendly and helpful. Rosario prepares wonderful coffee. The breakfast room is very nice with a great view.

The rooms are large by European standards and the air conditioning was very effective. My one complaint would have to be the cigarette smoke the rolls out from the managers quarters every time they opened the door to allow us in. It would be better if they had a key code access.

Average Hotel in great location
This was the perfect location for our trip as we were very close to the train station and to San Lorenzo square with many shops and restaurants nearby. Florence is quite walkable so we had easy access to the rest of town as well. The room had great AC and was quite large. That said, the hotel itself is located on the 5th floor with no elevator which was quite the climb with luggage, and the entire place wreaks of cigarette smoke despite the many no smoking signs plastered about. Also, our room was not clean with hair and other remnants from the previous guest in our bathroom and shower, and stained bed sheets. Finally, the staff seemed nice but spoke no English so it was a good thing we didn't need their assistance. They also lock the front door and do not provide a key to guests so you have to ring a bell to call hotel staff to let you in. One day we were locked out and waited over 15 minutes for someone to hear the bell and let us in. It was mid-day.
