The hotel is unremarkable but just good enough to be a simple homebase......a bed and private toilet/shower -- that's all you need. I paid 85 euro a night back in 2004. Located strategically between the Piazza del Vecchio and the Santa Maria del Fiore

Blocks from it all

This hotel was perfect for a our stay in Florence. It is really in the center of all the main tourist attractions and was perfect.

We had a double room with a sink on the 4th Floor that over-looked the courtyard (which was much better than the view from Casa Gerotto in Venice). The shower room was down the hall as was the toilets. The room was a decent size and was comfortable for the few nights we were there.

As I said before this hotel is really the perfect place to stay in Florence. We were on the main street that took us either to the Ponte Vecchio or the Duomo.

Unique Quality: The taxi that we took from the train station left us off at the back of the hotel; not knowing that this was not the main entrence we carried our luggage up three flights of steps (the lobby is on the 3rd floor)

Directions: Located down the street from either the Ponte de Vicco or the Basillica

We walked past it every time, missing it, because it is plain, unlike any hotel we experienced in Canada.

You ring the bell, and enter a very plain corridor. The elevator is at the end.

The hallway is weird, narrow, twisting, filled with art work collected over the years. The rooms are small, clean, and had a complete bath with a good strong, hot shower (with curtain) Flimsy towels, but servicable.
Thick foam mattresses, but surprisingly comfortable, and ample storage space.

Odd, but we liked it. It suited us to a T. Price was reasonable, if you can call prices reasonable in Florence, that is. We would return.

*** Just a point of interest, we have now purchased a number of those 'flimsy' towels I mentioned, because they are so easy to wash, and dry. In Italy, this is most important because very few people use dryers.

Unique Quality: Buffet style breakfast was included, consisting of cereals, yogurts, rolls, coffee, juice, and a waitress who never smiled. A typical breakfast in Italy, very seldom changed or improved upon in hotels of this price point. We have had 'much' worse.

Directions: stones throw from the Duomo
