How is this area to walk around at night? Safe, things to do, etc?
Hello Jolie , thank you for your interest , its about 20 years i have been living in this area , nothing ever seen or felt bad . honestly . Florence city centre is not big, all palces are concentrated so there is not really a bad area to avoid , and central station is not a "central station area" because its also a "Duomo Area " , " city centre area " and so on ,... thank you again . Marco

"Room with back view as these rooms are further away from the main street."
"Ask for a room on the fifth floor for best views over the city."
"The room with a balcony overlooking the duomo is incredible!"
"I guess rooms across the street is quieter, nice and new but barely no one will be there for your service."
"Accessibility is via a small lift or a climb of 2 flights of stairs to get to reception."
US$61 - US$212 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
