Outstanding Value in Florence

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2012

Friendly, helpful staff, spotlessly clean, my room overlooked the garden and a fabulous view of the dome of San Frediano in Cestello. This is a large building with a garden which makes it a very tranquil place - great location to take a break through the day, and escape from the very busy tourist sites. 15 minute walk to the Duomo and SMN main station - there are also buses that stop in the vicinity. Line D from SMN station, 11 to the Duomo. Very nice selection in the continental breakfast and my bedroom was tidied everyday. You can also buy your Firenze card (what a moneysaver, I love these things)at the Branacci Chapel, next door (cash - 50 euros) .
A number of affordable places to eat :Trattoria Sabatino is a 5 minute walk with homely food at very reasonable prices (via Pisana, 2) , I saw a chinese takeaway on Via del Leone , a Rotiscerria on via Pisana (a cafe but you can also takeaway local Florentine food) Sitting at a bar on Piazza della Signoria can be very expensive. Restaurants on or near the square are costly, too. Walk just a few blocks from the tourist crowds and you'll find less costly options.
I always scour the internet for flight tickets before I book, and beware of stealthy booking fees and other nonsense charges. Since airport parking when going on a European trip is expensive, and not exactly stress-free, I opt for hotel and park package deals. Stay123.com is my preferred site for these , they're reliable and often save me about half. And Florence is one of those places that you can easily go off-season, because its always beautiful weather (unless you don't like mosquitoes, then don't go to Florence at all!)
A lot of tourists fall into extra expenses by relying on hotel staff, tour guides, and taxis to advise them on their day-to-day activities, all of which come at a premium. Invest in a guide book with a good map that you can flick through on the plane to find the places you will truly enjoy. If you’ve booked in advance, do an internet search to find those little-known niche places of interest.

Unique Quality: The views, the old-world charm, the cleanliness, the staff. Just perfect.

Clean, Comfortable, Great Location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 21, 2006

I love this convent hotel. It is so clean you can eat off the floors. It is so clean that it is almost annoying because of the constant banging of brooms, etc. But it is a beautiful building, comfortable, and though my bathroom was not in my room it was conveniently located and I never had to wait for anyone to get out of it. In fact there are lots of bathrooms on each floor.

The location is great because you can walk to the center, but you are well out of the tourist area. If you are young and hip you are also right across from the hippest place in Florence for the young rich Florentines or those who want to meet the young rich Florentines, that is La Dolce Vita.

My only complaint is that there is no elevator and I had a bad leg due to a fall in Paris. I had to walk up 84 stairs to get to my room. Fortunately they let me leave my bags down stairs so I only took up what I absolutely needed.

There is also a bus right around the corner that takes you to the train station.

Unique Quality: Curfew: 11:00 p.m.

Directions: Oltrarno in San Frediano not far from Piazza Santo Spirito and the Santa Trinita bridge.
