The elevator starts on the second floor so you have to haul your luggage up to the elevator. We had no hot water the first morning. This is not a B&B unless you are willing to count some packaged biscuits and instant coffee as breakfast. The pillows are like rocks. There is mold in the bathroom.

Made a mistake - read comments only after I booked the hotel (non refundable) but forgot I got 2 huge luggages and my arrival time was 9ish in the morning. That means, I had to carry luggages through about 30 staircase to the lift lobby; also, no reception and check in at my arrival time! Comments mentioned if you wanted...

We stayed here for two nights in a triple room. Layout was nice with loft for our daughter. Bathroom very nice and clean. Liquid soap which never makes me feel clean. Breakfast is awful. Pre packaged dry goods with milk water and yogurt in mini fridge. Location not ideal.

Don't go there, the guy was so rude when we came in, there is no reception or checking counter it's an old building where they remodeled some apartments and you have to carry your bags through the stairs with no help whatsoever.. After a long day traveling we arrived and the staff was rude and unhelpful. The "included" breakfast was...

This was the last stop for my wife and I on our Italy journey and a perfect way to end the trip. Centrally located, comfortable rooms that are all unique and feel like a boutique hotel. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Highly recommend!

We chose this place as our last decent option after a lot of research & after the top few on our list had gotten pricier at the time of booking. While we thought that this place was too pricy for a 'bed & breakfast', we hoped that the location would make up for it. We booked ourselves for 4 nights....

It was everything we wanted from our room in Florence - nice room, clean, great location and good price. There was no reception/amenities, but that was perfect as we were out exploring the city all day. Would definitely recommend it.

If you are looking for a spacious, comfortable, very clean and large apartment in central Florence, this is the place. We had a wonderful time in Florence and this apartment was perfect. Room 14 has double height ceilings and comfortable beds. There isn't much of a view but we didn't intend to spend much time there. It's not a hotel...

Walking up several flights of stairs with heavy luggage is not my idea of convenience. The elevator does not go all the way to the ground floor so some heavy climbing is inevitable. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the air conditioning worked well. But we were greeted by one of the house cleaning staff who spoke...

We stayed in Florence for 3 nights on our honeymoon and after much research we chose Black 5 Florence for location and price. We were very pleasantly surprised. It is on the top floor of a building and there is an elevator from the 1st floor up. From the warm welcome we got along with a map and personalized spots...
