        Close to train terminal...but”

        The pics are inaccurate, and from the site you get a distorted view. My experience is with room 21, with 3 twin beds and shared bathroom in the hall. Window is with view to 1930s-era beat up tile roof. You get a feel it’s 1950s in the room, just a sink in the corner by the window, no a/c either, just ceiling fan. The pros to this place is that you’re practically at the Santa Maria Novella piazza, there’s a cozy coffee shop across the entryway, and off to the right a mini market with 2x 1 euro 20oz water bottles. Elsewhere it’ll be 2-3 euro per bottle, as of October ‘19. No breakfast at this place but, again, across the street (28ft from the door) there’s a cappuccino and croissant for 3 euros. Also, pharmacy to the left of the coffee shop. This is convenient if you’ve got to get something quick. Omar the concierge is very knowledgeable. The lobby is up 6-7 flights of stairs, 3rd floor. Or take the elevator for hobbits, again from the 1950s. Price? Maybe I got fleeced at buck twenty/ea.

        A nice place for budget trip”

        The hotel offers single room at unbeatable reasonable price. The location is good, just a few mins to central station. There is a big supermarket just opposite to the hotel that you can purchase anything very easily. Besides, it is quite near to attraction points in the city by walk. It is a wise and wonderful choice for budget travelers. :)

        Great location ”

        The best thing about this place was the location, walking distance to everywhere. Extremely basic but ok if you are here for only a night or two

        Hot and noisy ”

        Hotel is close to Piazza SMN and station-convenient, BUT be prepared if coming in summer, no air con, fan only- windows need to open all night long- super noisy from street level. Couldn't sleep well at all
