“Basic, convenient, clean”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

This guesthouse is very basic but has air conditioning and comfortable bed and space. They don't provide breakfast but Bar Mama round at 57 serves cheap breakfast. Round the corner this restaurant called Brincelli (or something like that) serves the true blue (and bloody) Florentine steak. A must try (to share) for lovers of chunky medium rare steak.

The service was very good even though the lady speak little English, we were able to make out what we were trying to say to each other. She let us place our luggage locked up in a corner before we set off for next destination. She even called a taxi to the train station for us as it was raining very heavily.

Room - clean and simple.
Convenience - just 5-10 minutes away from the Saint Lucia Statione and some tourist attractions

Central Florencne, Clean, Helpful and not too expensive. What more do you need. Perfect for short stays, travellers, young couples and people who dont mind the basics,

Received a friendly welcome where the owners talked us through exactly where to go and what to see on our one day in Florence which helped a lot. Room was basic but spacious, clean and cool (free air con). View from window wasnt great but didnt mind as wasnt in Florence to sit in my room.

Late night arrivals may be a bit nervous as its not that easy to find but dont worry, area is nice. Close to station as well.

All we needed was clean, safe, friendly, cheap, and in good walking distance to the train!

The brothers that own the place were so friendly and helpful! I cannot say enough about how helpful they were! We didn't have to ask for anything, they just sat us down with a map and gave us great advice and recommendations! They adjusted to our needs and let us keep our bags there longer!

Breakfast discount at a cafe down the street was just what three college students needed to get the day going cheaply!
