Positive Reviews

Major sites are within walking distance

Guests said the location of this property is perfect because it is within ten-minute walk to everything that travellers want to see in Florence. It is just right in the centre of Florence behind Ponte Vecchio. Moreover, it is located down a little alley way, off the beaten path of tourists which makes a quiet retreat at the end of the day.

Place is hosted by a wonderful couple

According to many of the previous guests, this place is being run by the best and loveliest hosts. The friendly couple is very generous in giving pieces of advice of what to see, best times to go, places to eat, and places to visit in and outside Florence. The kindness of this two is impeccable!

Spotlessly clean rooms

The cleanliness of the entire property was commended by guests. The owner did a good job in preserving its classic simple style. The rooms were spacious and well-kept with scented candles burning.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms are for sharing

Guests are a bit anxious when it comes to the use of the shared bathrooms. Although bathrooms are perfectly cleaned, it is always occupied during busier days. Seven to eight rooms share one bathroom. Hence, guests are forced to wait for their turn to shower or use the toilet.

Almost non-existent Wi-Fi connection

Yes, Wi-fi is free but it is patchy and does not serve the guests well. The Internet does not even work in the bedrooms and guests needed to find a good spot where the reception is strong.

Irregular key lock system

Guests complained about the complicated keys to their rooms. The door key and lock system sometimes does not work and it would take five minutes or so for them to open and lock the door.
