I had the best stay at the Archi Rossi
First the room- clean, nice fresh sheets regularly cleaned bathrooms. The bunks are a little old but comfy mattresses and not too creaky like other places
Secondly, the food- oh man, the food! Awesome buffet breakfast of all sorts of random food. Then there is the free pasta dinner every night except Saturday, absolutely awesome for a backpacker in a budget.
Lastly the free tours- 2 tours run alternating days, completely free (no tip needed) and really well done, informative and enjoyable.
There is a social vibe to this hostel I also really liked.
We were only at the hotel one evening but it was exactly what we needed. The room was clean, modern, air conditioned and comfortable. Bathroom was nice sized and functional. Location was in walking distance where we were coming from. Friendly and helpful young man at front desk.

Small boutique hotel on quiet side street. Small lobby and not many amenities but rooms while not very large are very comfortable. Everything in room including A/C worked well. Very quiet and dark in morning. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, even stored our luggage when we went away for 2 days to Venice. Great location less then 5 mins from SMN station and less then 10 minutes to Duomo. Breakfast not huge variety but fresh and more excellent croissants. Would stay again if returned to Florence.

Hotel was easy to find. It was just a few easy blocks from the train station. Friendly staff. We have one of the quad rooms. It was spacious enough for 4 adults except for the luggage. The beddings sheets were clean but the spreads looked old. The rest room was OK but there seemed to be a damp stench all the time. The ventilation fan was just not strong enough. The air conditioner was weak and very loud. If we don't leave it on, the room felt hot and moist. The room might benefit more with a ceiling fan.
Location of this hotel is great. It's very close to Stazione di SMN. It is on Via Faenza which leads into Piazza di San Lorenzo. From there, you can walk easily to the Duomo, Academia. Actually, you do not need to take any transportation at all. Florence is compact enough to walk everywhere. We walk as far as the Pitti Palace. That being said, the hotel is probably in the worst block of Via Faenza because the sidewalk shrinks to one person width and slants at an uncomfortable angle in that block which also receives a lot of traffic from a side street. It is not easy dragging your baggage in that one block. Check-in is on 2nd floor with no elevator.
Breakfast was very basic but adequate. Croissants, breakfast rolls, slices of ham and cheese, oatmeal, juice, coffee.

Located within blocks of SMN train station, this hotel rates higlhly when it comes to extra service, quiet room, secure premises and very accommodating staff. They really stand behind their 24 hour service, which I experienced when I needed to have breakfast at 4:00 a.m. before leaving Firenze. The breakfast was more than adequate, including hard boiled eggs for those who want more protein.
I found most sites in Firenze within a comfortable walk, even though this area is on the northwestern edge of the city.

"Nice family run hotel, very close to train station"
Close to everything, very central. Only problem was you had to climb three floors of stairs to get to it. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was very good. We would stay again, but not for anyone with mobility problems.
