    Good

    Good daily staff

    Miguel (night administrator) is always drunk. The breakfast is poor. Quite far from Florence.

    Friendly staff. Plenty of free parking..

    Very mediocre rooms, facilities and breakfast. y single room bed was like a sofa with a pillow. Cheap and nasty bathroom. Not at all worth the price, which is presumably charged due to its proximity to Florence. No restaurant, and a poor choice of local alternatives.

    OK parking, WiFi

    Dirty hotel. Empty Cocacola can and dust under the bed for welcome. Poor breakfast (packed muffins, yesterday's bread, marmelade only), no place to eat - use sofa in the lobby.

    Wi-fi in lobby, free parking.

    Upon returning to the hotel at 10pm the room door would not open. The front desk clerk was unable to assist. He advised we can sleep in another room until 7am when the manager will turn on their mobile phone. All of our clothes, medications, etc were locked in that room. The elderly clerk said there was nothing he can do and we can 'call Obama' but we will not get in the room. He would not contact a locksmith and would not permit the door to be broken in. This is a horrible experience and all the hotel did was give us a 15 Euro discount.

    It was easy to reach from highway and good because we were going to different towns.

    It was ugly and not too well maintained. The pictures in the website were not the truth. It looked better in the pictures. The price was not reasonable for the offer. Also, the people cleaning rooms started moving furniture around early AM and since there is no carpet, the noise was unbearable. We told them and they said and did nothing.

    The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, the breakfast was ok for the cost of the stay.

    The rooms are in need of an update, we found it very oppressing with the colour of the curtains etc but can understand that this may be needed because of the heat, the bathrooms definately need upgrading as we found the shower so small and the plastic curtain not very hygienic.

    Very good

    Room had a fridge, was a good size & had air conditioning. There was also a nice restaurant opposite, a Carrefour supermarket just down the road and a petrol station close by.

    Only had cakes & sweet stuff for breakfast. The shower was hard to use without water pouring all over the floor.

    The breakfast was alright, and yes, the hotel was cheap, but our room and bathroom and bathroom definitely needed lots of TLC.

    Very good

    The location is excellent with free parking lot at site if car on you. The hotel is quite an old fashion. It used to be a good one, though. The breakfast was fairly good. Still recommended as a value of money.

    We were asked to leave our passports overnight with them. This created a huge issue to us. We forgot to receive and they forgot to return them at check-out. In the end, I was forced to drive back to hotel which resulted in more than two hours loss as well as gas. To leave the passport with hotel overnight is also quite an old fashion, in my opinion and shall be avoided.

    We didnt like anything!

    Location was near the railway and we needed to pay roadtax to reach the hotel. Staff was speaking Italian only. Checking in took at least 45 minutes. Dark room with worn furniture. Room was dirty, dirtiest we have ever seen. Toilet sink was brown. Dust in the room in every step. There was no promised tv as somebody have stolen the tv decoder.
