The private rooms are like a 4 star hotel excellent location as well I really enjoyed my stay
It was centrally located and the rooms were spacious with all standard amenities except the electrical outlets. There was only (1).....seriously (1), outlet in the entire room. A mixed dorm room with 4 bunk beds and only (1) outlet doesn't make for friendly environments and happy customers. The price for the room was comparable but the foot, laundry, and drinks were completely over priced.
Everything was very easy. The private room was wonderful, large. Breakfast was great a large selection of sweet and savory. Walkable to everything. Laundry on premise. Workout room only had cardio machines. It would be nice if there was an electrical outlet near the bed so you could charge and read at the same time.
The hostel has great amenities such as pool, extensive breakfast, a small gym and multiple bars. The rooms were also very modern, clean and had air conditioning. There are already 20-30 busabout people on the main entry getting in the way and occasionally loosing their breakfast in the stairs nearby.
The bed was terrible, there was a bar digging into my hip/ lower back all night. One toilet and one shower for a room of 16 is not enough. There was some sort of construction or something happening on the floor above me from 5am to 9pm. No kitchen, which is dumb. It's a massive facility, so there are huge tour and school groups there all the time.
Staff was nice, spoke many languages. This is a hostel, not a hotel meant for families.. Pool was in a dark room with black lights, looked like a nightclub scene. Very loud inside and out, even at 3am. Beware if you are over 25, you are too old to stay here.
We stayed in the private double room. Pretty good location, 10 minutes from the train station. Nice pool area and sauna. Friendly people working at the counter. Not very comfortable beds and quite ugly room, really cold floor. You can hear every voice from the hallway. Weird smell in the hallway and in the room as well.
The hotel was very good for the the price i paid. Clean. As it was 15 min from the train station there was no immigrants around. Was very calm outside. Save. The breackfast was amazing!
This hostel has a very good location, being very close to the train station and 10 minutes walk from the major attractions. We got a nice & quiet room (they named it deluxe room) and for going there we had to cross the hostels' garden - a very nice place, i would like to be there in summer! Room was clean, with nice furniture, the bathroom was big. For breakfast we had to choose between some fixed menu, but it was ok, we had enough options (and got for no extra price croissant and orange juice). The good part of this is that we had fresh food, cooked especially for us (eggs and bacon). I saw very good prices for dinner menu, but as we didnt had the time to eat there, I couldnt say if the food its good or not. Free internet its a plus The restaurant looks a little like a place where students go to have cheap meals, so thats why my husband, who has about 20 years more than most of the clients of this hostel (young people, around 25) find a little diffficult to addapt. I felt like I was a student again, so for me it was ok.
The Hostel Archi Rossi is an interesting hybrid. The original part is a slighly upmarket hostel, complete with cafeteria style meals (why come to Italy for a cafeteria meal!), a load of computers for free internet access, a many backpackers. However, the Hostel has purchased the hotel next door so now comprises a hostel and very nice three star hotel with the latter at prices not much higher than the hostel, at least on the web. This means for a very reasonable price you can enjoy an extremely clean, comfortable and reasonably equipped hotel room (fridge, large shower, comfortable bed) and, most importantly, two gorgeous courtyards to relax in (an original one and one between the two parts of the hotel) as well as free internet. The free breakfast is truly cafeteria style, though the omlettes are really first rate and coffee should be skipped. Still, all the pluses make up for the average breakfast and for 90 cents you can step out the door and walk 40 metres to the left for a terrific coffee.
The front desk staff was excellent. They provided good instructions on how to get to the hostel and detailed directions for getting to the tourist site we wanted to see. Although we stayed one night, they were kind enough to hold our bags after check out so we could explore Florence luggage free. Thank you front desk staff! Super nice and competent at their job. The hostel was easy to find and in a central location. The beds are uncomfortable cots. It was chilly in the room, which made the bedding feel damp. We woke up a little later than planned and requested to have an extra half hour to shower and change before checking out. The front desk okayed it, which was appreciated however, the information was not communicated to the housekeeper. The housekeeper knocked on our door several times, I explained to her that we were allowed to stay for another half hour to shower. She didn't seem to understand or maybe she just didn't care. She rudely told us we had 5 minutes and left.
Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and large rooms. Good cooking and eating area and facilities. Free Wi-Fi
Extreme friendly and helpful owner. Clean, new and big rooms / facilities (kitchen, microwave, great showers, etc)
Very big rooms, nice utilities, quiet, air-conditioned, friendly staff A bit far off from the centre, but still ok walking distance
The hostel was light, airy and clean. There was no fuss and the facilities were sound. The communal space was nice and the rooms were comfortably furnished with air conditioning, which was gratefully received, and a TV. Everything you need in a hostel, no frills but exceeded some hotels in necessary areas. The lift was very dodgy and the shower got quite dirty by the evening, I would recommend taking a spare toilet roll.
* central location - walking distance from firenze santa maria train station * safe area there isn't much of a vibe. for sure not a place to hang out a meet lots of new people. everybody minds their own business even in the rooms. not sure why
Not so far from central train station --- about 15 minutes' walk; has kitchen The room we stayed was really strange ---- without windows but only a door to the balcony through which we could see the opposite room inside! And both doors don't have locks and in the end, both of us stick a towel to the door...
Best hotel for this money in the best city in the world!
Nice staff No AC
the location was pretty good the bathrooms were not clean
the location is excellent and the owner is friendly the facilities could be modernised.
close tot the center, friendly staff it was dirty, de shower didn't work, no good bed
It was not far from center and staff was friendly and helpful. The price was cheap, and all in all it was what I was looking for: The shared bathroom was not really clean and not comfortable to use. It might have a room for improvement.
the owner -
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great - midway between between the railway station and centre of Florence with great cafes and restuarants nearby.
The owner was very kind and helpful and the location was good.
This is a charming older complex of several rooms. Everything is clean and decorated perfectly. Small terrace and view that screams Italian charm. Management is very accommodating and friendly. The location to the main sights in Florence couldn't be better. Less than a 5 minute walk to Uffizi, Duomo, Galileo museum, Arno River, and much more. The beds and pillows could of been more comfortable.
