      The location is great, close to train station, tourist attractions. You can walk to the most tourist attractions. We arrived 2 hours earlier than check in time, the girl Nadia let us check in. She is very friendly and sweet. The hotel is very clean and the washroom is quite big. It is good place to stay in Florence.

      Excellent location — 5 min walk from Firenze SMN. Excellent staff — Nadia was very accommodating & helpful. Upon check-in, we advised Nadia that we won’t be able to have breakfast as we would need to leave very early each day for our scheduled tours. But she found ways to have breakfast prepared in our room the night before. Two thumbs up for Nadia for that! Good facilities — The room, though old, was big enough for our family of 4. The hotel has an elevator, though very small (only fits at most 2 people and 1 luggage), at least we didn’t have to drag our luggage up until the 3rd floor. Also, a bidet would have been nice and convenient.

      Simple but incredible Budget hotel”

      Located just beside Firenze SMN station. Macdonalds (24hrs) and Conad supermarket (closes at 9pm) located downstairs. I had the blue room with a small balcony. Relatively large room size with large toilet. Simple breakfast with hot drinks provided. Do note the hotel is located on the 3rd floor of the building and the red lift is very small. The reception opens from 7+am till 7+pm. Checking in and out is not allowed outside this timing. Basically they will provide room key, a key to the hotel door and another key to the building entrance.

      Perfect location and great room!!”

      Perfect location for our 3 day stopover in Florence. The hotel is pretty much opposite the main train station, a supermarket and if you eat McDonalds then it’s also right round the corner. It’s a short walk away to the Florence central, Uffici gallery and other main attractions. We loved our stay at Hotel Berna, it was super clean and staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a lot bigger than we expected and had all the amenities you needed, including tea and coffee making facilities. We even had a small balcony with the view of the cathedral across the road. I would highly recommend these rooms to anyone. Our only suggestion would be - to try make the front rooms closest to the reception, (where we were staying) make the front doors sound proof or provide some kind of sound proofing as the noise does travel through the doors very easily. This is not a problem during the day but early mornings and late at nights is problematic. If this is not possible, then maybe place up signage to remind other guests that there are rooms right there. Asides from that, it was great. We would still book there again. Thank you Hotel Berna.

      What a gem of a hotel in an excellent location. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The room was quiet and clean and had all facilities including a kettle and a fridge. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. Close to the station, the markets and a short walk to the Duomo and other attractions. Great trattorias near the hotel where you can eat well for 20 euros. I would recommend this hotel for solo or couple travellers.

      Lovely Hotel with exceptional Service!”

      Beautiful room, nice balcony, great service

      The receptionist was so sweet and helpful throughout our stay. The room size was good, clean and beautiful. Clean toilet. They provided us with some light snacks in the room. Minibar was available. Breakfast was good. The lift was very small, only fit for 2 people. Overall love the hotel and host.

      covenient stay near to train station and top attractions”

      the hotel is just opposite the train station, cross the street and walk towards the mcdonald, turn left. The building to the hotel is just few shops away, just beside the Chinese restaurant. The room bedsheet and decor is very antique, however the toilet is new. Overall, it is a worth stay. PS: the lift is very small, just one person with a luggage at 1 time.

      Value for money b&b hotel for light travelers”

      Great location, Saves time n transport costs

      Everything was good except it was located on 3rd floor and not conducive for solo traveler or travelers with big luggages. As it was the first relax stop before we travel to Milan for work, our big luggages pose a challenge to bring into the tiny lift. One person + one luggage at a time. If flexing your muscles to carry the luggages is not an issue, this is an ideal cosy hotel with easy access to places of interests

      Could have been much better”

      We loved the staff but the hotel Was very run down and our room was right next to the reception so quite noisey when trying to get a toddler to sleep. The room definitely needed a fresh coat of paint and the shower leaked due to the doors being busted.
