Right at the hear of Florence”
Everything is walking distance, the train station, Florence Cathedral, Piazza Pitti, etc. The hotel is pretty basic but it's a at least a good place to sleep in, have a good shower. Overall a pleasant stay.
5 mins walk from the train station”
- Inside is nicer than the cover photo. - There is an elevator, locker with key (FOC) - Staff is well responded before check-in - I spent only €29 for 2 nights via Agoda - You can deposit your bag after check-out (FOC) - Perfect location for backpacker, 8 mins walk from Firenze SMN, 1 min walk from the church Santa Maria Novella, 4 mins walk to the river, supermarket is right at the opposite of the hotel
Simple hostel, great stay”
The hostel is really well located, near the train station and walking distance to all the main attractions. The zone is quiet and the room was at just the right temperature for a nice night of sleep. They give you linens, towels, soap and even shampoo. Would come back.
Close to SMN Train Station”
Since the tourist spots in Florence are a walking distance to each other, any location for accommodation is okay. However, if you’re backpacking, it’s a bonus that your hotel is near the SMN Train Station; it’s only 5 minutes away on foot.
Beyond my own expectations”
I booked a triple room with shared bathroom. At first, I think there will be long queue of people waiting for having a shower and toilet, but I accepted it for one night. However, they actually provide us a room with small space for taking shower and a wash bin. This makes me happy. Moreover, the room and shared bathro were clean and tidy. The lady at reception was very friendly and enthusiastic. The location is great as I and my family could walk to the local tourism attractions and atation. Although there were some people making noise at night on the street, overall I and my family were satisfied with one night at Hotel Ottaviani.
The room was okay! But ...if you stay the room near the street would be very noisy!!!(clean cars work in the early morning everyday!)we didn’t sleep well during the stay...
Location is good!”
-location is near SMN station -around 8 minute walking for senior citizen with big luggage . - staff also friendly -cleanliness is not very good because outside toilet always clogged & flushing system always fail. - shower inside room also small and the door is not in good condition.
Clean, good location, but too basic ”
We cannot recommend this hotel as a couple traveling in winter. The room was freezing in the evening (it warmed up over night), the corridors were cold all the time, and using the shared bathroom in these conditions was painful. It is a clean place and the staff were helpful enough, but it is more a hostel, suitable to stay for 1 night as a solo traveler, not for 3 nights and definitely not for couples.
Good choice for budget travelers”
We spend a night at Florence in this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, location is great (just inside the old town). Facility is acceptable (of course you could not ask for more at this price). Overall I am satisfied staying here.
The hostel with trendy design! It is very near the train station. You can reach the supermarket and bus stop by walk within 5mins. The staff are very friendly and kind. The room, bed all are painted in white, so you can observe it is clean or not. Might be it is new opening hostel, every facilities are clean and good!
Great location, perfectly adequate!”
Pro: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Easy to walk to all major sights, along interesting and atmospheric streets and alleys. Café/bar right across the street, restaurant 15 meters away in case you arrive exhausted. Staff are VERY helpful and ready to assist any way they can. I'd definitely stay here again. CONS: Elevator doesn't go to the top floor (literally!) unless you ask; then they'll unlock it, if you have bags to drag up there.
standard hotel in a great location”
very basic room and facilities but the place was clean, hot water and wi-fi worked well, and it's in an excellent location. grocery across the street, laundry a few minutes walk away, firenze smn train station 550 meters away. good value for a basic hotel.
an old hotel trying to be a hostel”
+++++ / good location / room cleaning staff / heating always on (+/-) ----- / restaurant styled kitchen but only microwave and fringe working and one seat / as an old hotel some of the facilities need to be renew / one of the staff properly doesn't like this job
Good Location but not enough kitchen !”
Florence .. i think most beauty destination.. everywhere smells art and historic and when you reached piazza michelangelo firenze .. it worth .. so romantic city.. after this hostel is so close city center and train station but the kitchen is not enough i guess
Great choice for solo travel”
Unbeatable price :) Clean and cozy dorms in a walkable distance from Santa Maria Novella, city center and Arno river. Reception is friendly. And last but not least, the small supermercado is just across the street. Be prepared at night - it may be noisy from tourists and transport passing the street below.
I was really surprised that with this price I can find such a good hotel like Ottaviani. The location is great, few mins walk to the famous attractions and also close to the station. It was very clean and staff are so so friendly. Some bathroom have hair dryer, some don't have You need to ask the staff if you want the hair dryer. Definitely come back next time
Wall is thin , so you can hear the noise from outside the window/neighborhood talked. Share bathroom. Overall just a place to sleep.
warning: bedbug in room no.10! ”
the only advantage of this place is location which is less than 10min walk to the train station. Staff who checked us in was ok but the rest were horrible. Old dusty room. Shower sliding partition almost fell off. No real blanket, it’s very thing piece of clothes. Room faces the street, so very noisy till morning. Worst of all my mom and bro got bitten by bedbug. Don’t stay here but if it’s too late, make sure u don’t get room no.10.
no hot water in bathroom”
the room is really basic. when we went to take a shower, there is no hot water!!! and their reply was the hot water been used up, you need to take shower earlier !!! room is really noisy, you can hear ppl walk in the coridor !!!
the location is great and the staff are nice and helpful as can be. It was satisfactory for me as a solo traveller. However sharing the 2 x shared bathrooms with so many other guests can be a bit much. The staff try to keep it clean but some guests just use the facilities and don't bother cleaning after themselves. Plus being that you are staying in the city, as like all cities you will have to listen to the nightlife.
