I'd keep looking if possible

by belovedlamb on 23 May 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed here for three nights and by the morning of the third we couldn't wait to leave. The location is decent, you can really walk anywhere in Florence and this is no exception even though it's further from the city center. The windows had been open when we arrived which I appreciated, but there were no screens and therefore several mosquitos got in. We did keep the windows open in the evening the rest of our stay because when we turned on the air conditioner it smelled. Unfortunately we w...

Okay place to stay.Great location.

The room was basic. The morning breakfast is nice and a good way to start the day. The place is closer to bus stops. Its also closer to the Pitti palace and Boboli gardens. Easier to get to the city central by walk from here.

This is an odd place to review. Once a monastery as many have said in there reviews, and still connected to a chapel/church externally. Sometimes it still feels (or rather, looks) like one.

Stayed here for a conference held at the same venue. As has been noted in other reviews, this is a unique place, reminiscent of an old school boarding house rather than a modern hotel. Walking down the long corridor, I kept looking over my shoulder, expecting a stern House Master telling me off for making too much noise. If you are looking for a romantic getaway with your partner, this is not the place! The old style spartan furnishings contribute to this feeling. The double room had two beds, s...

A unique experience

by Hi T on 12 Nov 2014 (Friends Traveller)

This hotel is an old monastery and as such offers a calm and serene atmosphere, perfect for visiting the higly historical city that is Florence. The convitto doens't offer 5 star hotel facilities, but you'll still find it quite comfortable for a short stay. It's very close to the city center and the main attractions, you won't even have to take the bus. Although here is no restaurant, nor a bar in the hotel and the rooms don't even have minibars, you can find a variety of authentic italian resta...
