Positive Reviews

A good value, budget option

Guests agree that this unpretentious hotel offers good value for visitors on a budget. All the essentials are here. Management and staff are friendly and helpful, and the place is kept very clean. The beds, guests say, are comfortable.

The basic breakfast is appreciated

Breakfast is appreciated by guests. Again, they say that it is quite basic, but portions are generous and breakfast serves as a good way to start the day.

Access to attractions is a piece of cake

The location is considered by guests to be good. Many attractions are within walking distance. These include the more modern Nelson Mandela Forum sports arena. The walk, guests say, is easy and is less than two kilometres.Resisting the en-route Gelateria Badiani cake shop is unanimously agreed to be much more difficult.

Negative Reviews

Language barriers

The fact that the owners and staff do not speak English can lead to frustration and misunderstanding. Guests are somewhat embarrassed by this because they feel that when in Florence, the onus is really on them to learn at least a few words of Italian.

Mosquito mayhem

Guests visiting during the summer months say that the mosquito problem should not be under-estimated.

Ancient air conditioning

By and large, guests feel that the air conditioning has had its day and needs replacing. It is ineffective and the slow-moving ceiling fan is considered to be a waste of space.
