    Friendly, clean hostel right next to the Duomo. The location is wonderful. We booked a triple room, had a fresco on the ceiling and a view of the Battistero. The room was clean, spacious, simple but nicely furnished. The bed was comfortable. The staff was very helpful and kind. There were 4 bathroooms for the rooms to share.

    Superb experience. Perfect location, unique and authentic decoration (fresco) in the room, view to the Piazza del Duomo. The place is spotlessly clean, comfortable, quiet. The staff is welcoming, helpful, really nice people. Probably the best budget choice in Firenze.

    Can not find anything that was not perfect.

  • Group of friends

    This hotel is located 50 paces away from the Duomo--an ideal location! The hotel itself is a little worn but it was quaint and had a homey feel to it. The staff were amazingly helpful--very kind and considerate!

    Excelent location (if you don't mind the noise of tourist talking in the streets at night), you coud see the Cattedrale di Santa María del Fiore and the Battistero di San Giovanni from the room's window, very impressive. Big room, with a table and a couple of chairs.

    The bathrooms (shared) were not very nice (a little scary sometimes, specially the shower), the elevator was tiny and very uncomfortable (which might sound irrelevant but it isn't when you need to use it to move your baggage, we have to take turns to use it when we were with them). The walls were thin like paper and you could hear people talking in other rooms *very* loudly. If you are not very tolerant to noise, it might be not your favourite place to stay.

  • Group of friends

    The man that checked us in was very friendly and polite, but we never saw him again since they said our booking was at the B&B San Lorenzo. Our room there was nice, the location was great (right onto the steps of the San Lorenzo church), the elevator worked, and the breakfast was great (for an Italian one, of course).

    We were very disappointed that our room was not in the place we thought we were booking. Our room was nice, but sounds carry, and we were woken by someone early every morning in the kitchen.

    Lodovico Ingiulla looked after us very well. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The Annex in San Lorenzo near the Duomo was perfect.

    Staff is extremely concerned with your comfort during the stay. The owner spent a good chunk of time showing us on the map what sights in Florence to see. Also, he gave us two excellent restaurant suggestions - off the beaten path. Oh, and the residual ceiling decorations from the building's past as a Renaissance palace was pretty cool, too!

    Shared bathroom is the only negative, but that is outlined beforehand. Price is so reasonable, you are not being ripped off.

    The Albergo San Giovanni was noisy, dirty (dusty) and our room was in the annex not the main hotel. I complained that I was having allergic attack cause someone previously stayed in the room with a dog. I looked under the bed and found dog hairs and lots of dust. The staff moved us to a smaller room, I felt a little better. I would not recommend this hotel.

    This hotel has a fantastic location and a welcoming owner who is happy to answer all questions! We had a double room with outside shared bathroom, the room was specious and gave a beautiful view on the Domo. There are four external showers/toilets so no queues or anything. Walking distance 5 minutes from the Train Station and from the main sightseeings (Uffizzi, etc). Definitely recommend!

    The only bad point is the noise-as the hotel is in the very center, it can get quite noise. So if you wish to sleep with an open windows, you might hear quite a lot of noise and people passing by. However, we shut all the windows and shutters and managed to get some good sleep.

    Unbeatable location at such a price! Literally next to the Domuo. It's quite clean and decent. The staff are really nice and friendly.

    1) Reception is closed from 1pm to 5pm everyday, so it's impossible to check-in or store your luggage during this time. 2) The walls between rooms are quite thin - you can hear your neighbors' conversations without any difficulty...

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The location couldn't be beat for seeing the central area of Florence! Walk out the door and you're there. Also easy walking distance from the train station. If you closed the windows at night and used the fan provided, was quiet enough to get a good night's sleep. Staff was very courteous.

    I had difficulty connecting to the wifi as it was very weak, even in the area where you were supposed to go. The shared bathrooms weren't the cleanest but sufficed for the two nights we were there.

    Good staff and breakfast.

    Very very hard to locate, especially when you arrive late at night. Print the map with route before you come.

    Great location- on the main square. Great host - Mr Umberto was really friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    central and very near centre

    very basic,very dated and a strong smell of methane in the room.we could hear gas bubbling up in the night.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Location is ideal. Right by the Duomo, 5 minutes walk from the train station, 5-15 minutes walk from most other major tourist sites. Staff extremely helpful. Rooms spacious and comforatble. The toilet is "shared", but there are actually several of them, all with bidet and shower included, plus a sink in the room so you can brush your teeth, etc. We recommend this hotel - a real bargain.

    We liked the view from the room, but if you are disturbed by city noise outside your window, be aware that you are 3 stories above an extremely busy tourist piazza, complete with excirted adolecents until late at night. Check if there is a room available on the side awa from the street.
