Florence is great, not so with....

The only thing this hotel has going for it is location. Paint is peeling both inside and outside. Crumbling plaster below the step up to the bathroom. Ceiling collapsed on one couple in our tour group. Those in the group who paid for WiFi kept losing connectionn

It is all about location

It looked at first as a perfect hotel with 4 stars located in the center of the city, but I got a few disappointments. At first, there is no free Wi-Fi. The breakfast was mediocre with really slow staff cleaning the tables. My room at first looked quite nice. However, in my bad I could hear the neighbor flashing the water, as she/he would be in my room. Nevertheless, the street is located in peaceful street and only few minutes from the dome.

A Less Expensive Place To Stay....

It's old, a tad run-down, and certainly not a Four Star place. The place sprawls, with long hallways and all kinds of nooks and crannies. It has not suffered much renovation, that is clear. Our room was a hike down long hallways on the same level as reception, and our room -- though not lavish -- was reasonably spacious and had a direct view of the Duomo. There was also, on our floor, a reasonably furnished outdoor patio that seemed to go unused. The staff wavered between helpful and indifferent. Breakfast was mediocre. Bottom line: this is a less expensive place to stay just a block and a half from the Duomo, on the Via Ricasoli between the Duomo and the Galleria dell Academia. If you want a less expensive, no frills hotel in a very convenient location, the Hotel California is for you. Let's face it: When in Florence, my wife and I don't spend much time in the hotel, except to sleep, so this seemed a decent trade-off. If you go to Florence to simply stay in your hotel, there is definitely something wrong with you. Two years earlier we stayed at a more expensive "boutique" hotel on the very crowded Via de Calzaioli. Candidly, that wasn't really worth the difference in price

Great location, NOT a 4 star h....

We overpaid for this room, by either going through the wrong booking service or just having bad timing. The hotel is rated as a 4 star hotel but it is closer to a 2 star hotel. The lobby is decorated like a hostel and looks nothing like the pictures. The room we stayed in was dirty. Our socks picked up hair and dust that hadn't been swept from the floors in a long time. The blankets on the bed looked dirty and we didn't use one of them because we didn't trust it. The breakfast was not good. The eggs are powdered and all of the bread was stale. Coffee is not provided in individual rooms and you must pay $10 a day for internet service in your room. I guess there are two bars but they were never open. That may be because the hotel was not busy enough to open them. You have to drop your key off with the staff when you leave the building. The only thing we really liked about the hotel was the location. It is a 4 min walk to the Duomo and Academia and most of the other attractions are very close.
