Inexpensive + Ideal Location”

We originally booked a room from iH Hotels Firenze Business and spent our first night in Florence there, but one-way taxi trips (12 mins.) to the city center came up to 30€ so we decided to book Hotel Desiree last minute and we were so glad we did. The staff was super friendly, the night was only 48€, the location was unbeatable, only 2 min. walk from the train station & about 8 min. from the city center. The only downside is the hotel itself is quite old and outdated, but unless you're planning to spend the whole day in your hotel room, it shouldn't really matter :)
