The bedroom was clean though shabby. The shared bathroom was clean also. Communal areas were awful. The owner is unreliable. You can stay in wonderful places in Florence for the same price. My advice is stay elsewhere.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
