"Not the highlight of Florence" Ester Tip by amansfield

Ester, Florence: 389 reviews and 1 photos

The hotel is 1 star which should have been a hint! The days we were in florence, accommodation was very hard to find and so we thought this would be ok. We paid 63 Euros for a double room in January which was the most we paid in six weeks and it definitely was not the best room we stayed in! The room itself was huge - a queen and a double bed. Breakfast in not included but there is a fantastic cafe downstairs - my stomach is rumbling just thinking about the chocolate canollis and the paninis! The bathroom was the biggest disappointment - it smelt of bleach but I don't think it had been used. We stayed 3 nights and there was no hot water on two mornings. There is a lift though which is an enormous bonus! Location was excellent near the San Lorenzo markets and the train station. It can be booked though hostelworld.com and the like.
