The receptionist is a nice guy.....
They asked me to change to next hotel that was not good and not clean....
The location is not far from the train station and the hot spot. The room is clear and comfortable. All the facility is good and just like back home. We could use kitchen & washing machine. And the staff is really nice, friendly, and helpful. Good place to stay.
No Elevator, but this is not big problem. The staff help us carrying luggage.
Location is really convenient, it is near the train station, and walking distance to the Florence Cathedral. Staff are friendly
It is on the fourth floor, there is only stairs but no elevator. If you have heavy luggage with you, you may have to consider those stairs.
Amabilidad de los recepcionistas
El cuarto era muy caluroso y HABIA CHINCHES EN LA CAMA. Mi esposa sufrio casi 200 picaduras!!!! Que aun tiene. It is not recomended!! In bed bedbugs that were horribly damaged skin, this speaks to a lack of cleaning in place!!!
it's just two streets away from the SMN train station. There is one supermarket nearby. They provide kitchen, pot, dishes, coffee machine and kettle. The room is tidy.
it's on the fourth floor without elevator. i have to carry 20kg luggage up myself since i arrived after 6pm...
Five minutes walk from railway station and price is attractive. It's more like private apartment, very warm and comfortable. Wifi is strong, room is quite big compared to other European hostel.
Although it's close to railway station, it's not easy to find, no obvious sign. The big problem is no lift available. We arrived very late and the staff was off duty. We two girls moved two big and heavy baggages to the 4th floor......a huge task. Fortunately the staff helped on the suitcases when we leave.
- Nice Kitchen - Helpful staff who picked our bags up to the 4th stairs - nice advice about tours - reasonable price
only one: no elevator
Homely. Good location. Clean facilities.
One of the things we like about staying here is because of the location. It's so close to everything and we ate at the Market Central everyday. Also a nice grocery store nearby. Stefeno and Paola are extremely friendly and supplied us with info we needed to pounce around the area. Very clean place! Thanks!
The wifi was a little weak in the room but was alright as we didn't needed it that much.
Close to station, restaraunts, shops, grocery stores and main tourist attractions. Room was quiet and bed was comfy. There was also a kitchen space in the shared area as well as coffee making facilities and a computer. Wifi signal was good in the room. Would recommend this guest house and stay here again.
Nothing. We were really pleased with this place!
Very good communication. Optimal quality - price. Perfect)
Very nice place. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
II Ghiro gives us a friendly environment. We appreciate to staffs in this hostel, they are friendly. The location is very good that very near station and you can easy to walk around city. Ghiro also support a internet computer for any customer. We love this hostel so much.
Do not have elevator and air condition
Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice to be able to wash laundry and dry on their line. Close to train station and the heart of Florence. 10 min walk to the cathedral, bell tower, dome.
It would be nice if they would give directions on how to use the washer :) Seems like it might get broken pretty quickly with a bunch of people trying to use it. I googled the words that I didn't understand and was able to get it working. Hostel is on the 4th floor and there is not an elevator. That can be tiresome, especially if you climb the 500+ stairs to the dome and 400+ to the bell tower all in the same day!
Very good location and quitebedroom.
There is no elevator. It was no problem for us. We had hand luggages.
Located near to the station with very friendly and helpful staff.Easy to walk around Florence, very close to non traffic lanes.Street and food markets very close.Good security
Having stayed before I had expectations and I was disappointed by given an inside room right next to the common area which was noisy at night.
the location is perfect..five minutes walk from santa maria novella station and the duomo.the staff were very friendly.the room was very big and bright.
the hostel is in the forth floor of a building with no elevator.
Home away from home! A budget travelers dream :) This is a fabulous guesthouse. Great facilities, staff and very clean. Great location close to train station and all major sights.
Wifi only works in common area, not in the rooms.
Fabulous guesthouse!! Awesome value for the money, central location, lovely bright rooms and clean, clean, clean! Shared kitchen facilities and free espresso and tea are a bonus as well! Staff are professional and welcoming, If you want value for the money and a central, quiet, spotlessly clean, tasteful place to stay in Florence, look no further!
Would be great if there was a telephone for guest use in the common area, since the staff are not on site at night.
Second stay at Il Ghiro for me and my sister. We've travelled with my mom (61 yrs) this time arround and she was comfortable with all the facilities, even climbing the 62 steps to the 4th floor. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location excellent if you want to be close to station, markets and all the tourist attractions. Will stay here again & again.
The place is definitely good value for money, the location is perfect, close to the main station, in a small side street with great bars and osterie. Definitely recommended for a short stay in Florence.
best service nice boss
The personel was unable to help us for parking space and they seemed to have no information about the city
The proximity of the hostel from the train station, from the main touristics attractions and from the restaurants. The possibility to cook our own meals. The possibity to do our loundry. The staff was very gentle .
There is no elevator and the hostel is at the 3 rd floor. It's a little bit noisy outside.
Location is good. Convenient to everything.
No lift, Climbing to 3rd floor after a long walk is not fun. However staff was very helpful carrying our luggage downstair.
