Aimee Roblin thinks…

"Very clean rooms and were to a high standard for what you pay for a double ensuite. Staff were very helpful! Great location, on a quiet road but close to the main piazza with the learning tower."

Liked: Really close to the historical centre & restaurants, literally around the corner!! My flight was really delayed but they were very helpful, even when I arrived at 2am!

Disliked: Took me a good while to find the switch for the fan - but that is most likely just me being stupid!

Liked: It's a beautiful place, comfy and well-appointed rooms, our double bedroom had a window out to a great view, in-room sink, shared bathrooms / showers in hallway clean. VERY happy cleaning ladies! They SING when they work in this lovely place. The check -in folks very efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Locked luggage storage, very large ground floor common room, vending machines, outdoor patio, free wifi.

Disliked: Stairs - no elevator, and our room was on Floor 3 (in US that means 4th floor); no kitchen, not even hot water pot; squishy bed, soft mattress.

Liked: Great location right by the main sights. Very clean and helpful staff.

Disliked: If your travelling alone the its pretty empty and not much chance of meeting others. Other than that the only downside was the weather, but you can't blame the place for that.

Liked: great location and the staff were very friendly, gave us very detailed directions of the best sights in florence

Disliked: there were several kinda aggressive posters around about things (eg making noise after midnight, having more than 2 wines in the common room) being FORBIDDEN. Probably not a party hostel....

Liked: Helpfull staff, the free airport drop-off is a treat.

Disliked: They offer a cheap breakfast deal around the corner, which isn't mucht (coffe, orange juice, one croissant). In their defense: it's what one might expect for only 3 Euro.
