Basic room at good location

It was a last-minute change in plan to stay in Florence instead of Rome for the new year. We were lucky to find this hotel near Santa Maria Novella train station for less than what the other hotels were asking for. Our room is one of the rooms that have a private bathroom. The room tends to get chilly at night despite having the heater on. An important point to note that the hotel is on the third floor & the building does not have an elevator. You will have to carry your bags up on your own.

Clean, neat, great location

Close to train station, eateries and shopping precincts. Room was near and clean, dated by western standards but still very spacious and comfortable. Very good value for money, no lift and the hotel is on the 3rd floor may pose some issues but staff were super helpful and we would happily stay again.
