          I liked best being in the center of the City (Florence), surrounded with many small shops and it was easy to get to the main square, restaurants and expensive brand boutiques. Moreover, the area was safe and the hotel was on a short walking distance with the Bus and Train Stations.

          The old mattress springs were up in my back. :-) The very high and noisy sound of the A/C. The tiny toilet and bathroom. The tiny 14inch old TV with very limited number of channels.

          The hotel was clean, cheap and close to everything in Florence. The staff was very helpful. We found it very amusing that the shower was in the middle of the very small bathroom with no curtain, but it was all clean and functional and "en suite"

          Breakfast hours were somewhat limited.

          The only good aspect at Hotel Ascot was the localization.

          In general, the staffs were not willing to help and give information.
