                      • Near from the center and the location of the hotel is perfect. The staff speak English and are friendly, clean room & spacious toilets add to the value. The breakfast is honest and good localization.

                        The bathroom is too small.

                      • The location was great, the only good aspect at Hotel Ascot was the localization and the staff, , were very friendly and helpful. The room was reasonable and cleaned daily and smelt of nothing.

                        The tiny toilet and bathroom, poor breakfast, very old facility.

                      • The location is excellent, the hotel itself is quite nice and has breakfast room.

                        Very impolite working staff and old furniture.

                      • Just 5 minute walk from the railway station and location is good. This hotel is great value and staff were very helpful and I am afraid that is were ends. The food is excellent.

                        The old mattress springs were up in my back, air conditioning was particularly loud and breakfast hours were somewhat limited.

                      • Near from station and excellent position. Good value for money, friendly staff and the hot water must have been used up by a big group of students. Towels are more like cheap table cloths, breakfast is horrible, that must be improved.

                        Typical European hotel, the road its on isn't very nice and the coffee was very disappointing and the din ing room was very gloomy. Food was awful.

                      • Near railway station, great location and the hotel was clean, cheap and close to everything in Florence. All other staff were excellent, the room was clean.

                        The decor was old, stained and peeling, the floor was vinyl, the shower drain was stopped up. The towels provided were more like tea towels and breakfast was limited.

                      • Near the bus, also many restaurants in the nearby and i liked best being in the center of the city. Hotel staff was very helpful, for the price was more than adequate and the rooms were mouldy and you could smell as well as see. Fridge was warm, breakfast was pretty neat and a good variety too.

                        The place is soooo old and the internet connection is poor even in the lobby. Bathroom is bad too.

                      • Very near to train station and closeness to central region. I liked the location and nice BUDGET Hotel. Good rate and great staff.

                        No proper shower area, breakfast is of very poor quality and small bathroom and lack of bath cabin. And the lady manager is incredibly rude.

                      • Location for the railway station and shopping is just perfect, hotel Ascot is sufficient for a budget hotel.

                        The staff were not willing to help and give information, the water was rarely ever warm.

                        The hotel didnt have clean towels and laundry, bathroom is very small.

                        The hotel didnt have good clean rooms and only a curtain open up as a semi circle to shower inside.
