        • Couple

          Location is convenient to the train station and sights. Easy walk to everything. VVery large rooms with kitchen.

          No Wi FI in the building where our apartment was, which was about two blocks from the main building. Nothing particularly bad about the place.

          good location.

          hotel staff really rude, spent half an hour on mobile phone while checking me in. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 6pm and wasn't even in the hotel but in remote location. Room was small as well.

          Proximity to station makes it an ideal place to leave your bag on the last day.

          Misleading explanation of 'Roulette' room offer, though in hindsight the ambiguity is obvious. Thought that either a studio or an apartment would have a kitchen... only one does, not sure which.

          Location is good, perfect for us, near to train station. Price that we pay is reasonable with nice simple breakfast. We got room we request for , 2 single bed which is perfect. Staff is fine.

          We would recommend if the hotel change from carpet to wooden floor will be perfect. The carpet is quite old , has some smell.

          the studio had everything you need (hairdryer, microwave, oven, coffee machine,...)

          there was a bad smell in the room and the bed was an old sofa bed, you can't open the rolling shutter to see the sunlight...

        • Single

          It is close to the railway station. about 5 minutes.

          It is not easy to find out because it doesn't have a door in face of the street. There is not any fruit or vegetable in breakfist. The elevator is not in the first floor.

        • Group of friends

          This hotel may just be the most shady and seedy place in all of Florence! Within an hour of being in our room, my group of 11 found the shower head broken off, the bathroom door handle missing from inside the bathroom and then the outside handle fell off. Also, the kitchen sink was beyond flimsy and the AC barely worked. Light bulbs were missing and the entire apartment smelt like feces. Having arrived late the first night, we waited until the next morning to inform the concierge who seemed understanding at first, but then came into our room and scolded us for moving the furniture slightly to better suit our needs in one of the rooms for 6. In short, we all were looking forward to the morning of our check out so that we would never have to deal with the Alamanni Hotel ever again!! Good luck if you choose to stay here and watch your bill, as the concierge won't let you double check your charges and will attempt to charge you for WIFI whether you need it or not, because "the password is the same throughout the entire hotel," which is your fault somehow!
