Less than a 5 min. walk from the train station (Termini) this hotel is super convenient and a good price for rather expensive Florence. There's a lovely garden courtyard with shady seating for breakfast or an afternoon lull. Rooms are small but clean and pretty; ours had a working computer and big windows opening to the garden. Reception was friendly...

We wanted to stay in a nice hotel while in Florence, but the prices were so insanely high that we started looking at hostels with private rooms, and chanced on Archi Rossi Hostel. After a 5 minute walk from the main train station, we arrived at the hotel and were directed to the next entrance, called Mia Cara, which is...

We stayed at the Mia Cara for 3 nights Feb 2014. I can honestly say its the worst breakfast we've ever experienced in a European hotel. The website photos are COMPLETELY inaccurate! The 'hot' food was in fact cold and inedible. We would have been fine with toast and jam and, maybe , a hard boiled egg as a bonus....

We got to Archi Rossi, but they sent us to Mia Cara, with no reason. Once we got to Mia Cara the concierge, in a very bad way, sent us back to Archi Rossi to do the check in. The garden connected both hotels but as Archi Rossi is a hostel and the other one a hotel, of course there...

My husband and I stayed at Archi Rossi and were quite impressed. It was very near the train station, and an easy walk to all the sites. We booked a private double, and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was in the "Mia Cara" hotel part of the place. We entered through the regular front door of the hostel, then...

We made a reservation for a group in November 2011. The hostel has a good location, in the city center of Florence and a few minutes away from the train station.
