    The bedroom was clean though shabby. The shared bathroom was clean also. Communal areas were awful. The owner is unreliable. You can stay in wonderful places in Florence for the same price. My advice is stay elsewhere.

    This is a hostel. That means the bathroom and shower are shared. But that is OK, because it's very rare when they are occupied. Internet is great! Giovanni (the current host) is a great host. Since I can guess that this was a bigger apartment...More

    Great value place & everything you need in your room. Clean, plenty of lights, cotton sheets & excellent air con. It is slightly outside the old centre but still really well-located, perhaps 10 min to Duomo & a bit closer to train and bus station....More

    Well we stayed in Florence for only one night. This guest house is very cozy and clean. What I loved about the room is it's well maintained, and walking distance from everywhere. Yet I hoped for a mini fridge at the hotel. And never minded...More

    Santa Maria Novella
    Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
    majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
    might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
    come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
    station before exiting, taking a few steps and
    stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
    is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
    one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
