          Staff is excellent, helpful and positive.

          Internet is too expensive in my opinion. Some strange odour in the bath (may be it was just situational).

          Very bad experience,a very dark room with inadequate heating and hot water,very expencive for its value.

          The owners Elton and his wife are soooo sweet and always ready to help with whatever you need. They greeted us with a warm smile and made us feel at home from the moment we stepped in this perfectly located little hotel. It is close to everything. Parking is 20€/day so if you don't need a car after your stay in Florence, return it before because you won't need it in the city.

          We found the Dante to be a convenient place to stay and explore Florence. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and the kitchen was a great bonus. Breakfast was basic but enjoyable served outside or in a pleasant dining room. The hotel has air-conditioning and there was no charge for the WIFI connection. A very good place to stay!

          Very central for sightseeing, restaurants, bars etc. Handy to have a small kitchen area for preparing picnic food.

          A few simple things like new bedcovers and making sure the kitchen utensils were not dusty. Also, while the bathroom was obviously cleaned, the smell of bleach was quite strong, so maybe leaving the bathroom door open would help reduce the strength of the odour.

        • Group of friends

          I liked that it was very close to the main attractions. The bathroom was very clean. It had kitchen facilities. Staff were helpful.

          The bed covers looked a bit dodgy, and the carpet looked a bit worse for wear. If sleeping with windows open, you can hear the neighbors and every conversation on the street.

          Good location and helpful staff.

          Very shabby. Carpets extremely stained and bedcovers did not look clean although sheets were fine.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Staff are excellent, always ready to help. There are basic facilities and accessories at the kitchen area in the room which was a surprise for us, we did cook for a few times. the Bkf area is small but comfortable. Bakery and coffee served are good. Rooms are quite spacious compare to other B & B at the same price. Florence is not big so can walk to most of the sightseeing points.

          It is not easy to walk directly to the hotel from the train terminal if you are the first timer ( even you have a map ) and with a lot of heavy luggages, as the roads are narrow and rough. better take a bus !

        • Single

          The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They treat you nearly like a family member. Facilities are sound and breakfast is ok although it is the same day in day out. Location is perfect, in the heart of Florence old city. For a budget accommodation it is a very good value for money.

          The lack of the ceiling lights is a bit odd but it was not a major thing for me.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Excellent location, right next to Santa Croce. On walking distance of most sites. Great airconditioning, with seperate controls in every room. This was excellent, since it was almost 40 degrees celsius outside. Very kind staff; always helpful in planning and assisting. The breakfast was great and flexible(we love to get up early). Cleaning was prompt and very good, beds were fine. Large room, with more closet space than we have at home.....bathroom included tub, toilet and bidet. We had a great stay!

          If you know Florence, you know that in this area buildings are very old. The hotel is renovated, but the age of the building is the way it is. For us this was charming and no problem. If you prefer neat walls and flooring, you may choose a new resort, outside of the city. We just loved the location and enjoyed our stay! As with all airconditioning machines, the machine is pretty noisy. If left on during the day, we were able to turn it off during the night. We kept cool and had a quiet sleep.

          6.2

          Reception staff was very kind and gave us much information about the city. The room was spacious and pretty clean.

          The air conditioner in our room was not working. Good value comparing to the price, but the breakfast (unfortunately, even espresso) was not in good quality as in other bar or pasticceria. It may be adjusted to serve for the Americans...

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The staff was friendly and helpful

          The hotel needs an immediate renovation: the walls are dirty, noisy room with the view to inner court, there are mosquitoes as there is no air conditioning and you have to keep the windows open all the time.

          Nothing unless Checking out.

          I stayed for 3 nights (out of 10 nights -original booking) waiting for Hot Water, Internet Access and Telephone Line in my room. Then I checked out. You can't imagine the disturbance I faced during my Business trip during staying in this hotel. Regards. M.Mira.

          9.6

          wonderful location near Santa Croce -- felt like real neighborhood, not overrun with tourists. Delicious rolls/pastry at breakfast, excellent staff. Quiet street.

          First floor room is not best choice if you don't want to wake up early to noise from breakfast room.

        • Family with children
          5.4

          Staff at reception was very nice

          There was no water for shower, then no hot water, learned from other guests water problem for over 3 days; kids room no mattress just a foam very uncomfortable; stains on bedcovers; breakfast was poor.
